We stayed at Villa Ganz as a special treat after a lot of hard work, having stayed at the sister establishment, Trocadaero Suites, the three nights previous (see review elsewhere on this site). Initially, we had planned to stay only two nights but on checking-in immediately extended our stay by another night. Armando, our one-man welcoming committee - he was exceedingly friendly and helpful throughout our stay - had upgraded our room, which was an added touch. at the start of a quiet time in Guadalajara with the wet-season rain coming on.
Our room as up the rear stairs on the right hand side. It was exceptionally clean and, although there was a degree of street noise, quiet at the times you most need it; at night and early in the morning. The big bath was put to use and there was plentiful hot water. Our room came with a small fruit basket and a petit bottle of local syrah wine. Room cleaning as excellent and unobtrusive on the one occasion we made use of it.
As others have noted, the most impressive feature of Villa Ganz, apart from the building itself, is the superb rear garden. A great escape from the bustle outside and an excellent place for a quiet drink as the sun is setting.
On check out, Armando did something completely unexpected of him but much appreciated by us: he did the paperwork to exempt us from the IVA tax of 19%, which a big saving on a not-inexpensive room. Very much appreciated.
In short, it’s not cheap, but it’s very difficult to fault Villa Ganz and I expect that we’ll be back there again soon.
