The colonial-style house has three floors and a courtyard. It is surrounded by a tall fence for privacy and security. The house is not wheelchair accessible due to many stairs and its location on a narrow callejon with no direct access for cars.

Had an excellent stay at Iikka's place in Guanajuato. Iikka responded to all inquiries quickly and gave a great restaurant recommendation as well (Casa Valadez). This place would be difficult to find the first time, so it was very helpful meeting Leonor at the Mummy Museum. Upon arrival, Leonor gave us a tour of the house, and we were given fresh towels and the bed was clean and made up. The bathroom is a bit small and the water pressure is okay, but it was very clean and there were extra rolls of toilet paper. There are instructions for wi-fi next to the computer; however, the wireless SSID & Password listed on the instructions were incorrect, so I used the SSID & Password listed directly on the router & I was connected to wi-fi in no time.
The house is only about a mile from the center of town (if that), and if you need to take a cab, it's only about 30-40 pesos ($2-4) to anywhere in town (Note: cabs do not have meters, so make sure you ask the price before getting in). The view of Guanajuato from this house is stunning, day and night, and it's in a very safe area.
I would definitely recommend Iikka's place. He was very helpful and friendly through email and responded quickly to my emails, and Leonor was very pleasant and helpful upon arrival (fortunately my wife is fluent in Spanish, so that helped in communicating with Leonor).
Thanks to Iikka & Leonor!
Ikka's home in Guanajuato was just as he described. The house is very nice and has lovely views and outside areas. The kitchen is not fully equipped for a lot of cooking, but then again street food and restaurants in this town are plentiful. It's a pretty far walk into the center of town, so be prepared. Leonor is very nice and helpful. The two bedrooms were nice and cozy.
The flat has 3 bedrooms, a patio, a balcony, and great views. Leonor met us at the Museo de las Momias, which is a good thing since it is impossible to find the way to the flat though the walkways on (website hidden) maps. The center of town is within easy walking distance.
Iikka was very responsive via email with any questions we had. This was a great airbnb experience!
Mon séjour a Guanajuato a été merveilleux. Pour ce qui est de la maison rien a dire que son confort été parfait et que sa vue sur la ville était impressionnante. La situation de la maison était très stratégique pour pouvoir découvrir la ville de Guanajuato ainsi que les autres villes proche comme Dolores Hidalgo, Silao, San MIguel. Merci a Leonor pour sa gentillesse et sa disponnibilité.
La casa se encontraba limpia y ordenada, la encargada de entregar las llaves Leonor, nos atendió rápidamente, pues ya estaba ahí lista para entregarnos las llaves (previa llamada telefonica). A pesar que en las imagenes no se muestra, había 3 recamaras, 1 con dos camas individuales, una con cama matrimonial y otra recamara chica con cama individual. Lo unico malo no es la casa, si no más bien las escaleras para poder llegar, son 100 escalones o más, asi que no lo recomiendo si padece de alguna enfermedad o no puede caminar bien. Lo malo fue que tuvimos que salir 1 día antes, nos hubiera gustado poder aprovechar la otra noche.
It is a nice house, clean and organized. Leonor gave us the keys after calling her to her cellphone. The photos are a little bit old, because the house has changed (it's more nice now). It has 3 bedrooms, one has 2 single beds, the other one has 1 double bed, and one small bedroom with one single bed. I would recommend this house if you like to walk or want to take a bus or taxi, it's like 10 min walking to Mercado Hidalgo, and there are like 100 steps (stairs) from the front street to the house (it's on a hill).
So, if walking it's not a problem for you, this one is cheap and nice choice.
The house was in a great location - just 10 minutes walk into the centre and right by the mummy museum. Iikka was very helpful in the lead up to our trip, and Leonor his house manager also once we had arrived. The house is up quite a strenuous set of stairs (which you need to walk up as there is no car access), but the property gave great views from the balcony of the whole city. Thanks Iikka!
The house is clean, comfortable, and has beautiful views. A bargain.
I traveled with my parents in mexico and stayed in this lovely house while in Guanajuato. It has a well-attended yard that provides some calm and quietness away from the busy town life. I didn't meet Iikka, his housekeeper Leonor took care of the meet and greet at our arrival. I wish I could speak more Spanish as she does not speak English. Iikka did help on getting us meet at the right place and right time. Water is rationed so there are days we had to rely on water storage tank, which made us a little nervous about using water, although at the end it was fine. We wish there could be a few more convenience items such as toilet paper, and basic condiments (more than just salt), that would make the life of the guests much easier.
The house is in a good location, and the pictures make justice to it: cute, clean and cozy. The local contact, Leonor, was absolutely amazing and helpful, and also a very nice lady. From the pictures is hard to tell but all the beds are full size, so there is three rooms, all with full beds, and only one bathroom..
We were really unfortunate in that the internet service failed and we basically had no internet during our visit. This really changed our experience: we were in Guanajuato, arriving at different times for a conference, and not having internet of phone made it super hard to coordinate to eve meet up.
Iikka was good at getting back about reservations, but a bit slow about getting to contact the internet provider
