“Always good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

We visit here once or twice a year and always stay at QDJ. This time we let them pick us up in Ajijic ratherthan drive. Their driver also took us to the Jean-Luc Ponte concert in Guadalajara. We had the poolside suite #17 which I think is the best room ($115). The staff is first rate and has been fairly stable for the 7 years we have been coming here.

We just spent the past week at the Quinta Don Jose Boutique Hotel and the stay was one of the best we have ever had. We had a very busy schedule and the hotel was perfect for our needs. The staff was outstanding and accommodated our needs readily. The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable with a very nice king size bed. The food and service in the restaurant was especially good! The head waiter Salvador took care of everyone in a very friendly and respectful way. He has the best dessert that he has invented with chocolate cake, vanilla ice cream and flaming tequila that he named "The Drunken Blonde" delicious! Every meal exceeded expectations. We highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Guadalajara.

Room Tip: Spend a little extra and get a room by the pool!

We recently enjoyed two nights at this hotel. We chose an off site villa. Although very nice, we wish we would've stayed in the actual hotel. We loved the atmosphere and garden areas of the hotel. Overall, wonderful stay!

For years I have been coming to GDL on tequila business and have never been able to find a small, charming hotel to stay at. FINALLY, I found it at the Quinta Don Jose in Tlaquepaque!!! Not only is the hotel a magical place to stay, but the staff, food, drinks and location are equally as amazing. If you feel like a low key night in, the bar and restaurant offer great food and drinks at very reasonable prices. If you are up for an evening stroll, just walk a couple blocks towards the town center and there are bars and restaurants everywhere. All in all, the best hotel I have stayed at in Guadalajara and I have been to a lot of them.

We've stayed at Quinta Don Jose twice now and can't wait to return again. Tlaquepaque is such pleasure to visit with no shortage of great restaurants and artisan shops. It just feels so good to have Quinta Don Jose to go back to and relax at the end of a day.

Our rooms have been very welcoming with extremely comfortable beds (can be hard to find in Mexico). They are tastefully decorated and fit in with the artist theme of Tlaquepaque with no shortage of artwork and collections to browse over. I also like that they supply each room with a 17 L filtered water container (not just a personal sized bottle of water).

The grounds are also very tastefully decorated with little pockets of areas to relax with fountains, beautiful gardens, hummingbirds (my favorite), a pool and a very cute little bar and extremely friendly staff to tend to your needs.

The breakfast was hot, fresh and delicious. It is the standard fare of some breads and fruit, but for a nominal fee you can add a hot dish. We have also dined in their restaurant, Tlaquepasta, for dinner and the food (we both had the Argentinian steak) was excellent.

We have stayed at Quinta Don Jose quite a number of times and have always enjoyed the hospitality and and outstanding staff. It is located in the center of one of the most picturest areas of Guadalajara. We can recommend it highly, but don't fill it up too often as we want to always be able to get a room.

Room Tip: All rooms are enjoyable and the new Villa rooms across the street are nice if you want to have a pla...
