5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

This is a gem of a hotel/b&b. The location is fantastic, the service amazing, and the breakfasts are delicious! Don't miss your opportunity to visit this wonderful city and stay in the fantastic hotel that has the most amazing views. It is super conveniently located, steps from the funicular. Our room was lovely, the bed was very comfy, and despite the chilly weather, we warm warm and cozy! Thanks for a great stay!

Muchas Gracias. What a great P R man!!! The second time i read it I was reading it to Carmen. I was able to read it faster the second time and I sounded like was doing a radio commercial. Gracias. Unfortunately I butchered it during my feeble attempt to translated to Spanish. luckily Carmen fixed it for me. Carmen and the staff also thank you.

Location of this b and b is the best in Guanajuato - at the top of the funicular with expansive views of the city, out of the hustle and bustle yet five minutes from the action. Rick, our host, was most accommodating and friendly. Room was large, moderately appointed, a bit too much ambient light for the best sleep, bathroom is a stall rather than a separate room. Breakfasts are a gourmet feast. Excellent value ratio.

Muchas Gracias. The Maxcito bedroom is a bedroom designed for the solo traveler. This bedroom has an outside wall so we have a balcony with a view at one end of the bedroom, a stall shower with a view in the center of the bedroom and a large window to one side of the bed at the other end.of the bedroom. We did what we could the make the bedroom happy for the solo traveler. Unfortunately this guest used a on-line agency to book and would have been much happier had they booked direct. I would have given them the bedroom next door for couples. Less light, different style bathroom, more private and mas romantico. Next time book direct for the best available bedroom.

No need to repeat everyones' favorable review. It's all true. Location is great and free funicular pass makes it all OK. Note funicular hours. I only wish breakfast was a bit earlier. Rick takes care of everything.

Casa Zuniga is located close to the top of the Funicular which makes it very easy to get to the base of the mountainside and into the central part of town, near the town square, theatres and restaurants. Because of Casa Zuniga’s location, the views of the town are spectacular – we spent hours on our balcony just observing.

Our room was sparkling clean, spacious, simply but tastefully decorated. A quick walk through the courtyard to breakfast or off the property to the Funicular. Breakfasts were delicious with plentiful and varied selections and lively conversation with the other guests.

The owners, Rick and Carmen, are personable and helpful and full of information and ideas about what to do and to see while in Guanajuato.

Room Tip: We stayed in Maxcito room and the views of the town can't be beat. Just email them your desires...

Knowing how busy you must be, we really appreciate your time for this review.
As this guest wrote, if you would like to make a reservation, just e-mail us.
By pure luck, we are next door to the Funicular with a five foot pathway that connects us. We provide a pass for use of the Funicular at no cost to our guests. It's a 90 second ride to the center and a good photo op.
Again, thank you for your review. They keep us in business.
We'll see you the next time you're in town. Rick

If you are going to Guanajuato and are looking for a place to stay, stop, look no further. Casa Zuniga is the only place to stay. After we booked our room, Rick, the owner contacted us to help with our arrival arrangements. We decided to use his recommended driver, Israel, for our airport pickup and were scheduled to arrive around 2pm. Unfortunately our flight was cancelled and we transferred to a later flight finally arriving in Leon at 11:30 pm. At this hour we did not know for sure if we would have transportation to Guanajuato, or be able to find or check in to the B & B. No worries as Israel went above and beyond and was waiting for us, took us to Casa Zuniga, had a key to the B & B and took us to our room! This is exceptional service and so our visit to Casa Zuniga began. You can read the other reviews to which I echo. Rick and Carmen are warn and wonderful hosts. The place he has created (5 years in the construction) is fascinating. The large and comfortable rooms, the location above the town, next to the funicular, with the great views. The pool, exercise equipment, the murals depicting the history of Guanajuato and on and on. And then there was the delicious breakfast which was a new and delightful experience every day. The food in this town is memorable and we ate dinner at several excellent and inexpensive restaurants, however, I did offer Carmen a suggestion and that was she open a restaurant of her own. Thanks Rick and Carmen, and Israel for a great vacation.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Morgan room which has a balcony overlooking the city.

Thank you for the kindness in your review. Israel always does what it takes to get the job done. Only because you had booked directly, which put us in contact, were we able to get this done. When guests use a on-line travel agent to reserve a bedroom at at our home, it's a bit of a chore to obtain contact information for the guest. Without this contact information, it's not possible to send information, directions or arrange airport pick-up.
thanks again and see you on your next trip to Guanajuato, Rick

We came back to Casa Zuniga for the Thanksgiving weekend, two years after having first visited. Rick and Carmen have really been busy, making an already wonderful place to stay even better! Rick has added a lot of sculpture and metal reliefs to the artwork, all depicting significant moments in Mexican history. Also, there is a new mural, which is the best map of Guanajuato I've ever seen. It makes planning your walk through town much easier. Carmen's breakfasts are still excellent. Tasty and very generous! I'm looking forward to our next visit already.

Thank you for stopping to take the time to write your review. Returning guests makes everything go even smoother because they made themselves at home on the first visit. So it's like returning home.

Guanajuato is the cultural destination for Mexico. This is a big home with tons of space. The best thing to do with the space, use it to tell the history of Guanajuato with stuff we whip-up in the back yard.
Muchas Gracias, Rick

If you want to experience Mexico, go to Guanajuato; staying at Casa Zuniga makes that experience pleasant, relaxed, safe and fun. Enjoy the experience of sitting on a balcony overlooking the city after of full day of walking thru the city. Casa Zuniga has the amenities; a great breakfast, conversation with people from everywhere, free multiple tickets on the cable cars and friendly hosts (Rick and Carmen) who go out of their way to make your visit memorable.

Before you go, read about the history of the area and learn a few words of Spanish (and use them). Remember, you are in Mexico and staying in an area surrounded by roosters, barking dogs, fireworks, and men announcing gas and water. But you also hear kids playing, laughter, and neighbors talking and greeting you (if you use you few words of Spanish) on the street.

Now, If you want to go to Mexico and expect to experience America, stay instead in the Americanized colony of San Miguel de Allende or Guadalajara. There you can be surrounded by other Americans who have lived there for years and who still refuse to learn spanish and expect Mexico and Mexicans to cater to their American standards.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a private balcony overlooking the city

Thank you. You told me you would do it and you did it. A true man of his word. Gracias! BTW, gracias is one of the words that I have learned. So far It really comes in handy over and over again each day.
Casa Zuniga is in the Centro Historico of Guanajuato. On our one street you have the old mansions of the silver barons. Surrounding these mansions you have homes carved into the side of the ravine that is Guanajuato. Casa Zuniga shares the side of this ravine with the neighbors and their farm animals. We still have farm animals in the center of the town, the Centro Historico. We are seriously deep in old Mexico here and it's great!!!.

Again, Gracias for the review, Rick
