Our stay was wonderful. The location was very central and were able to walk every where. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. The only issues I had where:
- The washer was not functioning, this was one of the reason I chose this place, wish I would have been notified before booking.
- The shower water temperature can not be regulated, it's either hold or cold.
- The stove did not work, so we were not able to cook the food we bought and it went to waste.
Be prepared to be woken up by the church bells every morning, great if you're a morning person. If the first two items above are rectified, I would stay again.
We had a great experience at Alex's apartment! Alex was quick to respond to our texts/calls about when we were to arrive, and then met us as we arrived. He and his wife showed us around - they are both very nice. The place is spacious and very clean. King size bed in master bedroom as well as the futon sofa our son slept on were very comfy. It's a great location for getting to all the main points of interest. Like others have said, the church bells across the street are loud, but you get used to it. Would have loved a little more light in the apartment, but we were usually out most of the day, so that wasn't a big concern. We would definitely stay there again. Thanks, Alex!
Alex met us at the apartment and showed how everything worked. Alex's apartment is in the best spot in Guanajuato. Yes there are church bells but that is part of the central location. From the apartment it is possible to walk to and from the shops and theatres without hills...not always possible in Guanajuato, a very hilly city. You can get a taxi or a bus at the end of the street for longer distances. The bed is extremely comfortable. The wifi is excellent! The kitchen is adequate for simple meal (email hidden)ig, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker , blender , pots, cutlery, dishes, etc. There is a laundry service a couple of blocks away. We had a couple of small problems and Alex responded very quickly. We enjoyed a month here and would recommend this site.
We had a truly wonderful time in Guanajuato thanks to our host Alex. We loved the charm of this quirky-modern apartment in an old building. Great culture and public spaces. Central location. The church across the street was noisy day and night but we paid it little attention after the first night. After all, we were on vacation! Wear good shoes, prepare to climb stairs and steep streets. Go!
Alex was prompt with meeting us at his unit. He's a great guy and periodically checks in with you to see how things are going. The unit is perfectly located downtown and within steps of restaurants, bars, museums and stores. Since the unit is located on a dead end street, there is not a lot of traffic noise. The location is, however, directly across the street from an historic church, so you can expect to hear church bells and church music from time to time. The inside of the unit was clean and well stocked with necessary kitchen items and appliances. The bedroom loft upstairs nicely separates the living/dining room area from the sleeping area. The unit also has a bonus wash room for extra storage. Next time we're in downtown Guanajuato, we will definitely stay at Alex's place.
We had a very good stay at Alex's apartment. The apartment was as advertised, the bed was very comfortable and the apartment was in a great location. We walked to all the central sights and activities. Alex, the host, met us at the apartment to explain everything and checked in with us during our stay. The apartment does not get a lot of natural light as there is only one window (and some small windows around the door), but there are but the other positives outweighed this. The main attraction of the apartment was the central location. The church bells and singing from the church only added to the charm of the apartment.
