Our stay at Villa Ganz over Thanksgiving week was just amazing. We have never received better customer service, especially from the manager, Armando, and also Silvio and Manual, who made sure we were well taken care of every time we walked through the lobby or out into the garden. The grounds are amazing, especially the garden for breakfast and the covered veranda with a fireplace that was lit every night. Even the owner, Sally, stopped to talk to us a few times just to make sure we had everything we needed.

This boutique-style hotel and rooms have real Mexican charm, but then you can walk outside the gate into a bustling neighborhood full of great restaraunts and businesses. What an experience!

Thanks to Armando, Silvio and Manual for making our trip a great memory. This hotel is definitely on our list for return visits!

I was booked in here while on business and actually had no real chance to enjoy. This is a small Hotel with lovely inner courtyard at the back. Great for a short break. The staff very friendly, the rooms unique. I had no food so cannot make any comments, however just a few minutes away there are many very good bars and restaurants. This is good place to stay away form yoiur typical chain Hotel. I would say a liitle expensive.

What an amazing hotel. The decor and rooms are just perfect. Every attention to detail has been thought of by the wonderful owners and staff at Villa Ganz. It is paradise in a big bustling city. From the moment you step through the front door you leave the outside world behind. The foyer with its sweeping grand stair case is a magnificent sight on entry. Then you have the best decorated rooms and communal areas that add to the ambience of the place. There is also a garden and patio area to relax in. The location is great with numerous resturants and bars within walking distance. It is also a five minute taxi ride into central Guadalajara and all its sights. Villa Ganz is the best place to call home when visiting from afar. Thankyou to Sally, Klix and staff for making our stay one of the highlights of our mexican adventure.

Room Tip: All the rooms are magnificent. Ask for a tour to check them out. They are all decorated individually...

We absolutely LOVED our stay at Villa Ganz and I couldn't recommend this more highly if you are visiting Guadalajara. We will definitely be back. Beautifully appointed rooms, service from heaven and a wonderful vibe and atmosphere. The food was beautiful too. Thank you to the management and staff for making our stay so special!

Room Tip: I had the room with the claw food tub plus the shower, stain glass window, king sized bed, not sure...

This is a boutique hotel tucked in the middle of Guadalajara. The hotel is located in an area that has easy access to majors point in the city and restaurants are either walking distance or quick taxi ride. The staff is super attentive to all details and always ready to advise on restaurants, places to go, tequila tours, etc. The rooms are very tasteful decorated. You feel like you are in one of those old colonnial mansion. Every detail is thought through. The garden in itself is a quiet place to unwind after busy, noisy day wondering around Guadalajara. Our flight got delayed by one day - thanks to United Airlines incompetence in handling flight paper work!. And the hotel was gracious to void the night, even though it was not their fault at all. Like i mentioned above, every single detail is taken care by the time you step into this hidden gem hotel. Sally, you and your team deserve to be the top hotel in Guadalajara. This is the place to stay, even if you are on business trip.

What a gorgeous boutique hotel! Tucked away in bustling Guadalajara, one would never suspect the serenity and tranquility of the Villa Ganz. The staff is extremely friendly and gracious. The rooms are so very charming and the garden is an oasis in itself! This is our second trip to Guadalajara and the Villa Ganz. We were so impressed on the first visit, we didn't even bother to look for another hotel for the second trip. Villa Ganz was definately the place without question. The history behind this small quaint hotel is interesting as well. There are plenty of resturants, shopping and entertainment close by. Most within a short walking distance or a quick cab ride. We rented a car and had no trouble getting around this busy city. Hats off to Sally and Klix. Thank you for making our stay very special.

First, if you are wondering if you should stay in this area of town instead of the Centro, the answer is YES! All around the hotel there are A LOT of restaurants, bars, shops and beautiful big homes. Easy walk to the Centro or a 5 minute taxi ride. The neighborhood is safe, green, beautiful and alive with locals.

I stayed at Villa Ganz for five days and it was fantastic. There is a lot of charm to this hotel. Everything is clean and very tastefully decorated with an excellent garden and covered seating area with a fireplace. All the staff are super friendly, eager to help and will make your stay ever so comfortable (thank you to all of them). I was in a top floor room facing the garden (away from the street), my room was clean and spacious, the bed was comfortable, the water pressure for the shower was great and the room was quiet. I was able to sleep with the balcony windows open to allow fresh air in. And the little things made it even greater, like having a pitcher of water in your room every evening or chatting up Sally Rangel for restaurant tips.

This hotel is part of the Hoteles Boutique de Mexico. This was my third stay at a Hoteles Boutique de Mexico, and like the rest, Villa Ganz met all expectations if not more. I'm coming back here next time I'm in Guadalajara again.
