PERFECT, describes this quaint hotel in Chapala. Centrally located, we loved being so close to the Mexican restaurants, the malecon, and all the local shopping. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are well laid out. Awesomely large bathrooms, great shared kitchenette, and great views from the top mirador. We will definitely be back. Thanks M & L

Small, little noise, central location and very near the Lake Chapala waterfront, clean, newly decorated and loaded with character. Yes, it has strong and free wifi connection in each of the spacious rooms. Best of all, the price is right. It represents value!

We were so glad to find this beautiful hotel! After a long day ride on motorbike we arrived to Chapala and started looking for a place to stay, found a couple very pricey places, that were only ok, but then we found this hidden gem. This boutique hotel has a beautiful roof patio, kitchenette and all the rooms are different, very clean and cosy. The owner is really nice and helpful! We'll definitely be back!

El Pequeno is in the perfect spot, no car needed. The hotel is full of Mexican Charm.
Beds are very comfortable and everything is very clean.Really like the morning kitchen to
start the day with home made breakfast.
I am going to make reservations again soon and bring family with me next time.

Currently here for a week"s stay after a three day stay in Guadalajara. I booked through vrbo.com after seeing videos and pictures of the property online. This is a small boutique hotel that is tastefully remodeled and decorated. The owners have been helpful since arrival with questions regarding the surrounding community. Literarily two blocks away are the Lake and the town square and cathedral. 6 blocks away is the main bus terminal, however a Ajijic bound bus that runs every 15-20 minutes for 8 pesos, can be stopped just 3-4 blocks away. Approximately 6 blocks in the other direction is a great, huge, public park with tennis, basketball, track, pool, and an immense space of benches and picnic tables. And if your one who likes a workout every day, there's a small gym about 4-5 blocks away that has all the equipment you"ll need. The hotels location is great.
There is no air-con and frankly that worried me a little because I can be heat intolerant. However, my room is cool with the windows open and the fan on during the day. There is a nice kitchen area, a secure front door and reliable, fast wifi.
It's very clean and smartly decorated with caring owners. A great find. When I return I will surely try to book a room here first.

Room Tip: Two rooms on the second floor makes runs to the kitchen (on the second floor) quick and easy. I'm on the bottom floor and love it though. I don't think there's a bad room.
