“A Hidden Oasis”
Reviewed May 13, 2009

My partner and I loved staying at Vilasanta. When you arrive, the front street doesn't look like much however when you go through the front door and see the internal courtyard garden/common area, that is where you start to love this place. We had a massive room on the bottom floor with a private bathroom all for A$30 per night. While it was facing the downstairs common area and kitchen, it was never noisy or disruptive. We found there was more street noise although even that was never a problem.

There is a free laundry area on the upper level although the washing machine is very very slow so allocate time if you need to do laundry.

A few of the staff can speak basic broken english which was enough considering our lack of spanish.

This was a perfect base to visit GDL and everything is within walking distance. Quite a few people staying at Vilasanta had been there for weeks, even months so that is definitely a good indicator. It also has few wifi plus computers for those without laptops. I would certainly stay here again.

Stayed for ten days this month at Casa Vilasanta in Guadalajara, and I was very happy overall with my choice to stay there. Had a private room with bathroom, upstairs, and it proved to be clean, comfortable, and quiet. Air conditioning worked well, daily cleaning service was provided, and I enjoyed my stay. For the price, compared with other accommodations I considered in GDL, I think it was great value. I will be in GDL again later this year, and will definitely stay at Vilasanta again.

Absolutely beautiful place. The common area is fabulous and the staff is great. Close to all there is to see in Guadalajara as well as to the central metro station. Wireless internet is available throughout the posada and there's free drinking and cooking water. I can't say enough good things about Casa Vilasanta and I've only been here a short while. i will be here for six more weeks!
