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!!!
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 downtown location.
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.
The apartment was lovely...so very well laid out and so comfortable. Stewart and his wife have done an amazing job in putting it all together...really worth the five star rating. The views from both terraces were fabulous! The condo is very accessible to the town, shopping and all transportation. We loved our time in Guanajuato and hope to return some day soon. Anyone that decides to rent this space will be very happy that they did!
Stuart's apartment was lovely, clean, and comfortable. We didn't get to meet him because he was drawn away by a family death. He was very accommodating in helping us via telephone communications with our visit to Guanajauto.

There are many excellent reasons to stay in this "chic downtown studio." Chic it is – with attractive, comfortable furnishings. Studio – well, yes, if you only consider the large, interior room. But the glassed-in balcony (no roof) with its circular staircase leading to the rooftop terrace and its incredible views triples both its physical and emotional size. Downtown -- well, not really, and that only adds to its allure. A ten minute walk to Guanajuato's main street, the apartment is in a real neighborhood -- tranquil, safe, with its own market and park filled with local residents. Stay a couple of days and you'll become friends with the juice guy who for 38 years has offered a combo of carrots and beets -- good for the eyes and the blood, he proclaims -- and, inside the smaller market building, the woman and young man who make tasty gorditas stuffed with carnitas, nopales and pickled onions. And, with patience, you will wait with many others to place your order for a chile relleno quesadilla at the stand at the bottom of the hill run by an older couple (she cooks, he fans the flames). And do stop by for the sprightly (cooked) shrimp coctel at the stand in the park nearest the street (and with tables as well as stools). Throughout your stay, Stewart -- a most gracious and accessible host -- remains available to answer questions and offer restaurant suggestions. Book it now!
great vibe - great view - great location for shopping in & around the Embajadores plaza right outside - easy walk downtown to the Centro, no hills to climb - appreciated Stewart's gracious & responsive hosting - the rooftop terrace at twilight is superb
Do yourself favor and stay at this fantastic studio apartment. I think it has the best location, and certainly the best view, in Guanajuato! I found wonderful bakeries steps from my door. A lovely little mercado, "Embajadoras" and a little cafe "Que Gordita" a half block away. It's quiet, comfortable, and the decor is bright and there is an abundance of natural light--which I'm told is rare in Gto. The bathroom was very well designed, as was the rest of the apartment's layout. Steward and Lucero, his wife, are warm and helpful. I stayed 9 nights--and enjoyed every minute!
This studio apartment was very attractive, had ample room for a couple, was quiet and well-located. Overall, our stay was a real pleasure. Wi-fi worked well, everything we needed was in walking distance. Stewart was gracious and informative. Highly recommended.
Great place, location and host. Very cool design. Kate
Terrific host. Beautiful place. Strategic neighborhood.
Just bring your long underwear in December.
Could not recommend the apartment more highly. It is located on a relatively quiet street just a 5 minute walk from the center of Guanajuato. The apartment is modern and more luxurious than the photos let on. Fully stocked kitchen and fridge to cook your own meals, guidebooks on the bookshelves to help you find your way, and comfortable couches to relax in after a long day of sightseeting. The view from the rooftop terrace is an added bonus. Stewart was very helpful in arranging our arrival and giving us suggestions.
The studio was perfect and much more spacious than expected. The studio location is great for exploring Guanajuato on foot and is in a relatively quite area of the city. The rooftop was a perfect place to take in the views and have a glass of wine. Stewart is an incredibly gracious host who responded to all of our questions in a prompt and very useful manner. Stewart was always willing to give suggestions for our stay while always preserving our privacy during our stay. He helped to coordinated transportation to and from the airport which made the transportation logistics very stress free. We highly recommend the studio and found it an incredibly good deal for the price which allowed us plenty of extra cash to dine out and take tours. You won't be disappointed with your stay.
