Casa Armonia
Ranked #5 of 10 Hotels in Tlaquepaque
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 27, 2013

My wife and I spent the last two days of a month in Mexico at Casa Armonia. We stayed in many hotels from the most basic to five-star resorts. As you would expect, in the cheap hotels and even the medium-priced ones, very little attention was paid to the rooms. They were clean and the beds were made, but that was about it. The expensive ones were slick and sterile but lacked character (and some of them reminded us of cruise ships - yuck). Casa Armonia is one of the rare hotels where they pay a great deal of attention to the atmosphere and character of the rooms, as well as the courtyard and balcony. It's the sort of place where you notice something different each time you look. The rooms had antiques, art and craftwork and fixtures all from various regions of Mexico. It's really a perfect fit for the Tlaquepaque area. There is traffic noise but it's tolerable on the second floor, and after all, Guadalajara is a big, noisy city. I don't think you would have much luck escaping the noise except in a sealed-off high-rise. All in all we had a great time there. The hotel is just two blocks from the artisan areas and restaurants. The staff was wonderful. A special thanks to Ruth, our very gracious hostess.

Thought the same as some others after reading the reviews but I think they most put them on theirselves because it was nothing like we thought for the $$$$.
Cons: Swimming pool was really scummy, jacuzzi was not filled.
Very, very noisy at night so bring ear plugs, traffic most of the night with buses starting
around 7:00 a.m.
Had a really upset stomach after being served breakfast and later!!!
Faucet was leaking for the three days we stayed and never fixed, faucet caps kept falling
off into the drain and stopping up the water.
If you have a car it will be a pain because it only holds three and you always have to
move so people can come and go or leave your keys.
Pros: The staff was really nice and friendly.

Room Tip: All rooms are on the road so no choose.

We chose this place based on reviews and the website boasting spa services, jacuzzi and romance. It was a one night deal for us as we were en route to the coast. We selected the Amor room because the reservationist told me it was their most romantic room. So, expecting (for our $100 USD) a quaint and cozy experience, this is what we got instead.

First off, the staff was very friendly and I dare say that was the best part of the stay. The property and rooms were clean and mostly in order.

The romantic room was missing the overhead light in the bedroom area, thus, leaving a beautiful dangling exposed wire to get us in the spirit.

The jacuzzi was nothing more than a square tub, and had to be filled with a warm water hose. No method of heating it up, so that was a bust. Not to mention, 2 people had pulled cars into the hallway and not only blocking our door access, but blocking the jacuzzi. Romantic getaway getting less romantic by the second.

It is quite noisy from traffic until things calm down around 9-10 pm, so if you want quiet, look elsewhere.

Breakfast was very underwhelming and certainly not on par with what I would expect from a b&b boasting such great services and extras. We had bad coffee, greasy eggs, a bowl of fruit, and some very sad looking bacon. Definitely not a good presentation of breakfast.

We will not be staying here again but wish the staff well, because they all were quite lovely.

Room Tip: Perhaps the rooms upstairs would be a little quieter and out of the action from below.

We were staying overnight on route to Chiapas and the owner picked us up at the bus station and drove us to the airport the next morning for a reasonable fee. We were upgraded to a larger room as the hotel was empty which was a nice gesture. The room was comfortable but no reading lights which is often a complaint I have. Also no reduction in rate for not having any breakfast because of our early flight. Would have been nice if we had been offered a sandwich or roll to go as there was nothing open early at the airport. We love Tlaguepaque so this was a great location for spending an afternoon walking around.

Room Tip: Try to choose a room away from the street

This B&B is clean and the rooms are large (semi-suites), but the rooms have a street window and traffic seems to flow most of the night. Also, our bathroom only had 7 foot walls, and even though the bed was in a separate space, a fully enclosed bathroom would have been preferable. The proprietor is a nice guy and the breakfasts were good, but the pool wasn't open either. It is only a block from the Zocalo and staying in Tlaquepaque is a quieter small town experience than Guadalajara with local entertainment at the Parian and great shopping, so it's worth a stay. But Casa Armonia does not measure up for the price.

I am from Puerto Rico and decided to take a vacation in Guadalajara. I was searching all over as the Panamerican games were taking place and there was hardly any hotel, motel, etc. to stay at. I was lucky enough to have a family member in Guadalajara that made my reservation at a hotel I had never heard of or seen. My first impression was Wow! This place is incredible. Very quaint ! When you first check in the actual owner is there on the property to serve you. The rooms are decorated with vintage furniture. By the way there is only 5 rooms available. It has a pool and Spa, and a Temescal (Native Indian Sweat Lodge). I did this with my girlfriend for the first time. It was amazing! Breakfast is served every day 8-11am and again, owner is there to make you any style eggs. Victor is his name and he has 3 other employees that will take care of any of your needs. You are actually located one block for the Tlaquepaque center. A lot of restaraunts, shopping. etc. Things to do, Visit Tequila, Tonala ( place to purchase anything and everything) If you ever stay here tell them Rafa Marquez sent ya. You wont get a discount but atleast you will be like family. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Ask for Room across check in. It is nice and big

I am an American living in Mexico and love to explore all that Mexico offers. This lovely small hotel is a true find located in the heart of Tlaquepaque. It consists of two converted old homes into five unique rooms filled with all the wonderful artesania of Tlaquepaque. Each room is special and different with antique touches and talavera tile in the baths. The beds are excellent and the rooms are very quiet for being located in the heart of the city. El Parian, the center of Tlaquepaque, where you will find one city block of restaurants and the wonderful Mariachi musicans, is only one block away. All of the best shopping that Mexico has to offer and your choice of excellent restaurants are a short 10 minute walk. The owner, Victor, is a charming and very accomodating host who is happy to assist with your requests. He also speaks English perfectly. A delicous breakfast is prepared to order each morning by an attentive staff. The hotel also offers a pool and spa facility if you would like a message after a full day of shopping, sightseeing and dining. Having taken several trips to Tlaquepaque (Guadalajara), I would not even consider another hotel. This B & B has all the comforts a person could ask for. Spoil yourself and spend a few days here.

Room Tip: All the rooms here are equally good and quiet in the evening
