I was a little sceptical of booking this B&B after visiting their website. The pictures on the web made the rooms look VERY small and drab, but the price was the best in town. I showed up without a reservation and was warmly greeted and shown my choice of rooms. What a pleasant surprise! The rooms were more than adequate, clean, and with authentic Mexican decor. Yes, the walls were lime green and the furniture was hand painted, but after all, this is the artistic area of Guadalajara. The hotel was about 3 to 4 easy blocks from the main square and shopping area. The breakfast (included in the price) was fruit, yoghurt, cereal, toast with jam, coffee and juice. The owner was very helpful with information and supplied maps, menus, and information on walking tours and shopping. In fact, he got up at 4:15 to make sure my taxi for the airport arrived as scheduled. I can honestly say that my stay exceeded my expectations, and again, at the best price in town. I would definitely return. Muchos gracias Luis!
