About this listing

Beautiful, modern, fully equipped downtown studio apartment. Two terraces. Expansive city views. Quiet. 1-2 min walk to market, bakery, fruit and vegetable, wine stores. Located in flat part of Guanajuato, ~10 min to Jardín de la Unión. No stairs!!!

The space

This studio apartment is located in a house on one of the oldest alleys in the city. You won't find a more beautiful apt in Guanajuato. Excellent location on the edge of downtown- on a quiet and peaceful alley.

The living area is furnished with high quality minimalist furniture: an upholstered chair and loveseat, small coffee tables, as well as a generous sized dining table with two chairs. Plenty of closet space. A separate sleeping space with a matrimonial bed is located behind a half-height wall. Full kitchen, including stove with oven, and polished concrete counters inlaid with glass and stones, and a breakfast bar. The bathroom is spacious and bright. The apt is approximately 400 sq ft / 40m2, a perfect size for 1 or 2 people.

Guests have access to a second floor terrace just outside the apt, and a 100m2 roof terrace with 360 degree views of the city and mountains. The view from the second floor terrace is beautiful, while the view from the roof terrace is spectacular. The apt is located on a little hill set in the center of the city, which allows for the great views.

The apt is on the edge of downtown, next to the Jardín Embajadoras, a 2 minute walk to one of the two public markets in Guanajuato, and an easy ~10 minute walk to the Jardín de la Unión, the center of Guanajuato cultural life (restaurants, bars, music). Since the apt is not on the slope of one of the mountains rising around the city center, it is about as flat as Guanajuato can be. The location is easily accessible by car, bus or taxi. Some street parking is available.

Rental fee includes weekly cleaning service. Guests have access to a washer and dryer at no extra charge.

If you need transportation to or from the airport (or anywhere else), or a tour guide, we can recommend an excellent person.

Hosts are a US/Mexican couple, fluent in Spanish and English.

Stewart is really patient and helpful! He gave us good recommendations on restaurant. And helped us arrange a reliable car ride to airport last minute. The room is clean and look exactly like the photos. To be aware, the room doesn't have AC. But it seems like every place in Guanajuato doesn't have AC. The rooftop is awesome.

We've stayed in quite a few Airbnbs and Stewart and Lucero's place was perhaps the best of all. Don't be fooled by the square footage -- I think the apartment is larger than advertised, or at least it feels like it. Very private and quiet, yet conveniently located and a short, easy walk to and from the jardín. Shower was great, with good water pressure and ample hot water. We loved the decor and furnishings. Everything was very comfortable and great cross-ventilation when the doors and windows are left open.

Lucero and Stewart's place exceeded our expectations. The flat is nicely decorated with vibrant colours, is spacious - the view from the large terrace upstairs is the icing on the cake. Finally, Guanajuato's buzzing city centre is within walking distance. We highly recommend this apartment to whoever is visiting Guanajuato.

Great apartment with good location. Clean and comfortable. Loved having a washing machine after being on the road for a week.

Beyond our expectations... Stewart & Lucero's place is up a quiet, wide and open pedestrian alley a block from the beisbol stadium. An easy place to catch a bus or cab. Their place truly is chic, with a beautiful color scheme. On our upper floor we had both an atrium with a bistro table and seating, and then a spiral staircase up to the rooftop terrace with more seating and many of their plants around soaking in the sun. But it's the view that truly takes your breath away, a 360-degree view of this magical city of Guanajuato and its surrounding mountains. We could not get enough of those views. Everything is conveniently walkable if you love to walk and we do. We felt extremely safe, safer than so many urban areas in the US. It is a true college town, and there is always something going on. It was wonderful.

Great place, near the historic center of Guanajuato. The apt is small but has all the amenities one needs. It was very clean too. Stewart, who lives in the same house, was always attentive. I'd definitely recommend it for a couple visiting the city.
