Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great place in the heart of Guanajuato. Plenty of places where to get food around in the shape of convenience stores and restaurants. We loved our stay.

    April 2014
  • The house was nice. There were many steps though. No rail or guard on one with a steep drop. It's okay for someone younger with few bags. My mother wished for less stairs and not such z steep climb. Other than that everything was alright.

  • Super cute place.

  • Donna was very accommodating. Our flight arrived very early on Sunday (like 8:00am!), so it was great to be able to check in so early as nothing else was open and we didn't know where else to go yet.

    The place is very charming, yet rustic (it is Mexico) and also very secure which was nice. There are 3 locked doors/gates to get into the place and the local Policia estacion is down the street, so again, we felt secure there and had no problems.

    The walk to the Centro is about 20 minutes, a little longer to the main Jardin. Close by there are plenty of local shops and tiendas to eat or stock up on some things to keep in the fridge like we did.

    We greatly enjoyed our time in Guanajuato and I look forward to going back again to study my Spanish.

    Muchas gracias!

  • This was a wonderful retreat within the city. A very private place to relax. Simple but creative accommodations, very comfortable. A beautiful yard and garden, plus incredible views of the city. Thank you, Donna.

  • Great location and place for my 2 day stay in (email hidden)ry quiet at night and only a 5-10 mins walk to Mercado Hidalgo. Would definitely recommend to friends and stay there again in the future when I visit Guanajuato again. Mrs. Donna is also a great host.

  • Donna's property is beautiful. It is relatively close to everything but there is a bit of walking to get close to the center. I was there during Cerventes Festival and it was nice to get away from the noise and the people. My kitty had a really good time staying there because she could run around freely and there was a gate so I didn't need to worry about her wandering out into the street. I didn't talk to Donna too much and would only recommend that she have more info in the apartment when there are festivals happening, it took me a few days to find a program and a map of town. The apartments are great and well equipped with all you need. I stayed a week longer because I enjoyed Guanajuato so much. The only ding I would give her place is the driveway. It is VERY steep and there are some big rocks and pot holes so my car bottomed out a few time. If you are not driving it's perfect. I left my car and walked most of the time so it didn't matter and I was glad my car was safely parked which was really nice. Only a problem if you think you will be driving in/out a lot during your stay. Totally recommend her place and would stay there again. Thanks Donna!

    Response from Donna:

    you are right! only bold leaders can drive in Gto's streets/alleys; you were the first driver who had trouble. Sorry, I forget to leave instructions and maps in the apartment called "Nispero"; I hope the instructions and maps of the apartment "Canastos" (your frist one apt) have been helpful. Thanks for your recommendations I appreciate them ...U and your kitty always welcome :)

  • My partner and I stayed at Los Canastos for three weeks, and loved it! There's plenty of room and light, and it's great to have a kitchen with all the equipment you need. One thing to note, if you're planning to stay for a longer time, is that the kitchen sink is very slow, so it's hard to wash dishes. The house is also up a hill, so you should be OK with climbing hills. Otherwise, it was great! Guanajuato is a lovely and walkable town, and the apartment's location is good - a little distance from the downtown area, so it's quiet, but a quick walk of 10-20 minutes from most places you'd want to go. There are a couple of convenience stores, a nice cafe, two laundries, and a few lunch places right nearby. And anytime we needed anything, Donna was helpful.

  • My wife and I enjoyed our stay with Hda La Escalera. Donna was extremely helpful with all of our needs here in the beautiful city of Guanajuato. We were in walking distance to everything. I would definitely return again in the future.

    Response from Donna:

    All My Best :) Gracias!

  • Gaila and I have had a great time here with Donna and her wonderful space. Exactly what we were looking for - inexpensive, secure, comfortable and centrally located. Yes, there are some hills but worth every step :-) Great internet too - a big plus. We fell in love with Guanajuato!

Hacienda La Escalera - Host
Early 50's, easy going, free spirit and very friendly person, no drama queen. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Love to travel and meeting new people; enjoys both, the excitement of the city and the beauty of the outdoors of the country. Favorite place in Mexican its beaches. I can’t live without coffee. I've been working in real estate for over 2 years. I´m property mamager eith several GTO units, which one is very substantial Villa; is the most enjoyable work I have ever done. I’m often out of the house and if I am here I keep to myself, usually working, so you will have lot of space and privacy. When I'm not planning an event or decorating, I love to sit back, relax and take life in. I enjoy renting out apartments and always try to make it feel that way for others. Not pretentious or stuffy, just comfortable and welcoming to ensure people have a comfy place to stay and can experience Guanajuato like a “belly green”. With each property I will make sure my guests have all the information and service they need to feel comfortable & at home in my various neighborhoods. All my experiences with Airbnb have been fantastic thus far and I appreciate any & all feedback from my guests so I can continue to improve the experience guests have & become an even better host! Ex Hacienda La Escalera has been our home for many years, and I love living here with my small but great family of two magnificent sons graduated and working. We live surrounded by more family and them houses, all together formed our own private gated community. We are very laid back, and love the community aspect of our lives and rental business; love our neighborhood and happy to share it. I am lucky to live in a 3 bedroom house in one of the most convenient neighborhoods in Guanajuato. My home is my sanctuary and when travel enjoys staying in an equally comfortable environment; now we want to share it with you! - so if you're planning a trip to Guanajuato and need a place to stay that will feel like a home away from home, shoot me an e-mail We'd be happy to host you! You'll love my place and you get to step into Guanajuato whenever you please. I look forward to meeting you, there will be a clean bed waiting for you and coffee in the kitchen!! MY CITY I live in an amazing city! I have been living in Guanajuato for more than 20 years, and can't seem to leave. After a week in Guanajuato, I knew I belonged here Love Guanajuato. It's a special feeling that people rarely experience, and I know through the friends I've made here that a lot of them instantly felt the same about this place. It's well worth a visit! There is always something fun to do in Guanajuato whether it's going to a museum, a galleries event, or just taking a walk by the city. And it's always more enjoyable when you share it with someone you love! The people here are young student, especially in the school season. Guanajuato is flooded with activities, from free concerts to outdoor, Mimes, multitude of other interesting places off the beaten path that you can't find anywhere else in the world. The energy here is so free and relaxed; you'll forget which city you are in. We love our city and we love our food, so I can give you some tips for the good and non touristy places if you want. Let me know if you need some tips. Our hope is that many others can enjoy what Guanajuato Capital has to offer, through staying at our property for a wonderfully relaxing time. I have amazing hosting reviews on airbnb, thanks guys! So feel free to ask any questions you may have and definitely read my reviews. Would be happy to host you, and have always enjoyed helping people get to know my city. I always try to make your trip a great experience!!! Your experience in my house or apartment will be a truly fabulous one! Welcome to Guanajuato!
