The space

Private rooms in big house with a great location and a beautiful panoramic view where you can see the entire city of Guanajuato. Just 10-15 min walking from downtown, going downhill.

The host of the house, Aunt Lucy, is living in Mexico City at the moment but there'll be always someone to welcome you and help you in any doubt you may have about the city. Normally it is kind of complicated to accept last minute requests because we have to take our time to go to the house and welcome guests. So please make your booking with at least one day in advance.

Among the services available, rooms have wi-fi, shared bathrooms, washing machine, kitchen, dining room and terrace with beautiful city views. You can stay as a single person, couple or in group, as you prefer.

Located on the hill of el Sagrado Corazón, a 10 minute walk from downtown.

*Price is per night and per person.

*The current host is Federico, he'll help you with anything you may need. And of course, you can always write me (Ernesto) through this website, since I don't live there.

The neighborhood

The house is located in the hill "Cerro del Sagrado Corazón", just right above the panoramic view which helps to have this incredible view of the whole city. The area is pretty quiet, but during the night we recommend you to always take a taxi because the street can be a bit dark.

Getting around

You can walk downhill just by following the Guadalupe Avenue, and you will get right to Plaza de la Paz which is already downtown. In 10 minutes you'll be there. If you prefer, we can call for a cab to pick you up at the house and take you to your destiny.

Adorable house. I had good rest. I did not meet the owner but I was well taken care of. I want to thank Federico and his family. They are super nice and willing to help me all the time. I left quite early in the morning. Thanks Federico for helping me get onto the taxi. Ernesto is very responsive and a very nice host. The house is kind of far from the downtown but it is quiet. Anyway, the town is small so only ten minutes walk to the central part.

Beautiful place with a great view. Lucy is very sweet. Make sure you are clear on room type but it was nice.

Aunt Lucy is very kind and Ernesto helped me a lot from the bus I took to how to get the mt. pipila top. From the roof of the house, you can see another side of the small town, all the colorful houses just like what you see on pipila.

Lucy is a rare and beautiful person that I have had the great fortune of meeting. My heart is only full of thanks for her generosity, care, good humor and depth of knowledge of many things (including, but not limited to, all the right places to go, people to meet and things to do). Lucy's home is very comfortable and spacious. I wouldn't hesitate to return again and again. Also the little dog, Candi, is extremely adorable. While I didn't meet Ernesto, I spoke to him. They are a great duo making for a great experience. I'd give her six stars if I could!

Ernesto is very friendly and helpful. He replied me very quick about all the questions in proper English. The room is big but not extremely clean. The house is a little bit far from downtown and very steep that I take taxi everyday. The balcony is with a great view and I enjoyed staying there during the night. I recommend it to the guests who want a less expensive accommodation in this beautiful city.

First of all, Tía Lucy's place is just as described in the listing and Ernesto was very attentive when an issue about access and keys came up. My only problem was that Tía Lucy was on vacation and I missed the personal connection which, for me, makes Airbnb so much fun. Her neighbor Laura, who helped with running the house, was very nice and helpful but did not live on the property. There were two other guests who were hardly there and the house was big and rather lonely for me. You might keep in mind that, for safety, it is necessary to take a cab from the neighborhood at nighttime (30-60 pesos depending). My room was large with a private bath ("warm" would best describe the "hot" water) and a great view. Had Tía Lucy been there I think that I would be more enthusiastic. It's certainly a good deal.

This is Ernesto, photographer, webdesigner, freelancer, licentiate, all-round great guy! Love to travel, specially to cold places!!

Right now I'm administrating my aunt's house in Guanajuato, but the current main host is Federico. Please feel free to call him if you need anything. I don't live there but I certainly enjoy my time over there each time I visit the place.

Aunt Lucy's husband was a paintor, he made beautiful landscapes of Guanajuato and painted stories about Don Quixote.
