Description

The space

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.

Guest access

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!

The neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

Ana is the most wonderful, kind and friendly host I've ever met! On the first day, she walked around with us, showing the way to the centre of the city and having a little orientation. Her house is beautiful and her little two cute dogs are very friendly! Seeing how Ana love her dogs remains me of my dog. It was a peaceful moment when you sit on the roof, listening to Ana playing piano. Also, if you take flight to Leon and need to have someone pick you up at the airport, choose Ramiro to pick you up, a funny guy who can carry your luggage directly to Ana's house. I will definitely come back to the city and visit Ana again! Best

If you stay at Ana's home you will not be disappointed, its a hidden gem in this magical city of Guanajuato. if you like the terrace view , wait until you see it in person. The panoramic view is breathtaking both day and night. Wish we could have stayed longer at her place. It was a last minute trip and our first time booking with Air b&b. Our host Ana made it a positive experience, she was prompt in answering all our questions and communicating all the information needed prior to our arrival. If this is your first time visiting Guanajuato , we strongly suggest having Ana's driver pick you up. Her home is about a 10 minute walk to the city center and many historical sites. If you want to experience the culture, beautiful architecture and the best panoramic view we suggest staying at Ana's home.

This was my first trip to Guanajuato and Ana made my stay very special. She took the time to show me her favorite cafe's, walking to town (lots of steps!!), and helped arrange for a driver from the airport to her home. She is absolutely the best host I have ever had. The bedrooms are apart from the main house so there is a lot of privacy. She has two sweet dogs and a rooftop patio with views of the city that are outstanding. But the best surprise was listening to her play the piano as she rehearsed for an upcoming concert tour. A brilliant, creative woman and world class pianist. She made my first trip to Guanajuato absolutely beyond expectations.

Ana is a great host with a comfy home that has amazing views. Her pets are the sweetest, and piano music is wonderful. Just minutes away from the fun and busy parts of Guanajuato, Ana's home is a great place to stay in this fantastic city. Enjoy the patio view with morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. If you are lucky, Ana will join you.

Casa del Pozo is a warm, colorful, comfortable place to call home for as long as you are in Guanajuato. It is perfectly situated with a grand view of the city, and yet an easy few minutes walk down to El Centro. Ana is a wonderful host, and her dogs make you feel right at home, too. And if you are lucky, you get to enjoy some wonderful piano music, al fresco! Altogether, I highly recommend her place, and look forward to my next visit there.

Ana is wonderful and her place is also. She is not kidding when she says you will have to manage stairs - both up and down. There are a lot of them! Also, lots of neighborhood dogs barking. So that might not work for you, however that is just what you will often have in a Mexican neighborhood. Ana plays the piano and her music is so soothing. Also the view fron the roof terrace is fantastic. I enjoyed my 3 night stay and will gladly stay with Ana again on another trip to GTO. Thank you, Ana.
