About This Listing
Lovely room with private bath, in architectural gem of a private home. Various sunny terraces with panoramic views of the beautiful City of Guanajuato. Kitchen privileges.
If you like what you see here but the calendar is full, please check out the other spaces available in this House of the Well: there is another adorable room with private bath; as well as the studio apartment!
PLEASE NOTE that to arrive here one must walk: either one walks up or one walks down, but walk one must. If you have any issues with stairs, either up or down, please seek other accommodations.
Lovely room with private bath, in an architectural gem of a private home. Kitchen privileges. Various sunny terraces with panoramic views of the beautiful City of Guanajuato. The only off-limits part of the house is the music room which is my workspace.
The room has two single beds which together form a queen-size bed, so that it works for a couple, for two friends travelling together, or for a single individual.
Most important of all, the great common area of the city of Guanajuato and its cultural offering, astounding for a city of this size (population ca. 175,000). Between book presentations, art openings, the university’s Cine-Club, poetry readings, concerts, and lectures on various topics, one could be occupied five nights out of seven, and two or three afternoons. Doesn’t leave much time to enjoy the increasing number of good restaurants here!
Here in the house, you are warmly invited to come up to the roof-terrace where the sun hits first in the morning; and to enjoy the sunset with a glass of something. In reality, all the public spaces in this house are here to be enjoyed: the azotea, the central patio, the little north patio with the laundry.
Really, THE ONLY OFF-LIMITS AREA IS THE PIANO ROOM WHICH IS MY OWN WORK-SPACE.
And of course, if there’s a house-concert here in the Casa del Pozo, you are warmly invited!
CLEANING: Weekly cleaning is included in your rent. If you’d like Sra Yolanda to come in and tidy up in between times, the cost is 100 pesos per cleaning.
Interaction with Guests
This is the home of a working artist. I share this space with my guests, however short or long their stay here may be. If I am here, I am as available as my work permits. And as always, if there is a concert here in this House of the Well, my guests are cordially invited!
This is a people’s and not a rich-folks’ neighbourhood, and in an Iberoamerican city, so you will hear roosters, dogs, and the occasional outburst of ranchera music; but it is all quite inoffensive. This barrio is friendly, lively, safe.
We are 8 minutes’ walk from the Jardín de la Unión and from the Juárez, Cervantes, and Principal theatres –the latter being where the Symphony performs every Friday during the university year-; as well as the Museo Iconográfico and Casa Cuatro where there are also concerts and numerous other events.
Easy access in taxi, microbús and on foot; there is also a private (locked) access coming down from the Panorámica.
Guanajuato was not built with the automobile in mind ;=)) ... Nevertheless, should you need to bring a car, with a little advance notice my neighbour just above on the Panorámica usually has an extra parking space: cost is 150 pesos / night, 350 / month; anything in between is negotiable. Public parking lots cost 12 to 15 pesos/hour. (I do not recommend finding "free" parking in a tunnel: it may well cost you the repair of your windshield.) If you arrive in a car, you will almost certainly park it and forget about it until you leave: this city is far easier to navigate walking, in public transit, or if necessary in a taxi.
Other Things to Note
I love this city very much – even knowing as I do that we have a lot of things to improve here, I love it very much. And I want the people who come here to visit, whether for three days or three months, to also have affection for it.

Staying with Ana en her house was an unforgettable experience. It was the perfect introduction to Guanajuato and also to AirBnB for me! Her house is one of the most beautiful I have seen in my life. And the location and view were incredible!! Ana was also a very kind spirit and super helpful. For me it was like a mix between staying in a homestay and a unique, fancy hotel. The only part that was confusing were the prices, but we resolved them by the end. Thank you very much for everything Ana!
Quedarme con Ana en su casa fue una experiencia inolvidable. Fue la introducción perfecta a Guanajuato y también a AirBnB para mi!! Su casa es una de las más bonitas que he visto en toda mi vida. Y la ubicación y la vista no se puede imaginar!! También Ana es una muy buena onda y demasiado provechosa. Para mi era una mezcla de alojarme en una casa de familia y un hotel elegante y exclusivo. La única parte que no estaba claro fueron los precios, pero resolvimos al final. Muchísimas gracias por todo Ana!
It is always wonderful for me to host people not only in their first visit to Guanajuato but on their first AIRBNB experience! Ryan, I am SO delighted you had such a great time here, even though your visit was really short! The price misunderstanding seems to have resulted from a well-intentioned but misguided attempt on my part to translate the prices into pesos ... A BIG MISTAKE!!! Now I've changed it back to USD and all appears to be well.
Siempre es una maravilla ser anfitriona para alguien no sólo en su primera visita a Guanajuato sino también en su primera experiencia AIRBNB. Ryan, me da mucho gusto que disfrutaste tanto tu tiempo aquí por breve que fuese.
Me parece que el malentendido sobre los precios resultó de una bienintencionado pero estúpido intento de mi parte de traducir los precios de dólares a pesos mexicanos: ERROR GARRAFAL. Ahora he vuelto todo a US$ y parece que todo bien.
We had a wonderful stay experience in Ana's house. It's a nice, cozy place with graceful design and full of traditional decorations. The house has a perfect view of the city from a small mountain and we really enjoy stay with two lovely and friendly dogs. Ana is so helpful and kind that make us feel like home. She provide us bunch of useful information of location, activities, dining and sight seeing. We would definitely recommend our friends to stay at Ana's if anyone come to Guanajuato.
We had a great time at Casa Ana. It is a really really cute house and Ana was very helpful and gave us tips on places to see/eat etc. It is really close to downtown too. We enjoyed our stay and wished we could have stayed longer.
Vamos a escribir algo muy cortito pero preciso para no repetir lo que se puede leer en reviews anteriores. Nuestra mejor experiencia en Airbnb. Una casa alucinante y que es un fiel reflejo del arte que Ana lleva en las venas.
The house is fatastic, best airbnb I have ever lived. It locates on a hill, where we can overlook the city . Ana is a super nice host. She told us details of getting to her place, and gave us good suggestions about restaurants and museums.
Love the house. Will definitely come back (website hidden)
Our bus arrived close to midnight and our host sent a wonderful tour guide to pick us up and bring us to the house. Ana was up and about when we got there and greeted us warmly and showed us our room. The room was very charming and had everything we needed and so we were quite comfortable during our stay. The entire house was very unique and her plants and flowers and the view from the house were magnificent. Ana took us on a walk into town and showed us various landmarks and places we indicated we'd like to visit and gave us maps and recommended restaurants etc. We really appreciated her taking the time to spend with us as we could see she was a very busy lady. We would definitely book with her again as it was a great experience.
