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, (email hidden)e 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), (email hidden), we can recommend an excellent person.

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

Guest Access

Lavadora y secadora. Agua purificada.

Interaction with Guests

Los dueños viven en la casa, abajo del depto. Hablan inglés y español- una pareja de EEUU y México.

The Neighborhood

La casa está situada entre El Jardín Embajadoras, Pastita, y el principio del Paseo de La Presa. Tiene la ventaja de estar en un callejón cerrado y tranquilo, pero a sólo 1 o 2 minutos de muchos servicios. Perfecta combinación de ser muy acesible al Centro, y también un poquito retirado.

Getting around

A 1 min del depto, hay taxis y transporte público que pasan continualmente. Pero no se escucha el tráfico desde el depto!

  • The rest of the reviews are very accurate with what I experienced. The studio is even better than what the pictures portray - it truly was a treat staying in such a clean, organized, well-equipped, and nicely decorated place.

    Stewart is a great host and was very helpful. He has a cell phone that his guests can use, which definitely comes in handy if you need to get in touch with other residents in the area. The kitchen is equipped with all the necessities you'll need if you feel like cooking - there's even a good sized refrigerator. The rooftop terrace has an amazing view and provides some great photo opportunities.

    I have nothing negative to say and highly recommend staying here. I'll definitely be back.

  • Phenomenal place - to reconfirm the many comments ago, looks even better in person. Very comfortable, extremely tastefully furnished, high ceilings, modern architecture; wonderful view of Guanajuato both within the apartment and from the roof terrace one story up. Apartment is located on the first floor (American second floor), Stewart and Lucero's residence is one story below. Very private and well-located for all the sights of Guanajuato. Be sure to check out the guidebook which includes some very good restaurant suggestions. All in all one of my best airbnb experiences!

  • Amazing! Stewart's apartment is gorgeous in every aspect. From the roof top patio with incredible views of the city to great interior colors and design to the comfy bed, we couldn't have been more happy with our experience. Stewart was very accommodating and went above and beyond to help us, both before and during our stay. As the other reviewers indicate, the pictures (while lovely) don't do this place justice. It's a perfect place for a couple. We truly couldn't have found a better place in Guanajuato. A nice walk to the center and situated in a vibrant, but quiet, part of the city, we loved experiencing Guanajuato with Stewart's apartment as a home base.

  • What more can you say? Stewart's studio apartment is perfect - stylish, bright and airy, well-maintained. Everything works - great lighting, well-placed electrical sockets, hot shower - unexpected pleasures for a stay in Mexico. The roof garden is exquisite - the whole house is a restful and beautiful oasis, conveniently located on a quiet private cul-de-sac yet a quick walk to the center of town or other parts of the city. Stewart is a kind and accommodating host - we would highly recommend a stay here and hope to come back again many times ourselves.

  • It's been said many times, but the pictures really don't do this space justice. The studio is beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you'll need to feel at home in Guanajuato. The views from the roof are truly spectacular, especially at night when the town is lit up beneath you.
    My favorite aspect of the studio was it's location. Stewart's home is nestled on a quiet, gated street just steps from all the hustle and bustle.

    Stewart's hospitality and attentiveness was impeccable, even though he keeps interactions to a minimum. This was my first AirBnB experience and quite honestly I was worried I was giving up the privacy of a hotel for a full studio, but Stewart did an excellent job of being an invisible host while still making himself available for any questions or concerns. Next time I'm in Guanajuato I know exactly where I'm staying.
    Thanks again for sharing your home Stewart.

  • Stewart and Lucero's apartment is very nice, convenient, and beautiful. When we are in Guanajuato again, we will stay there for sure.

  • For some reason the photo's don't convey how beautiful this apartment really is. It feels so fresh and modern and the views from the roof are spectacular. It's a great location set slightly away from the downtown area but a really easy walk to everything you would want to see. It's connected to the main house (although it has it's own entrance) so any noise in the home is heard in the studio as well. There was a party downstairs our last night there and even though it only went until 1am or so, we had a 5am wake up time which was a little rough. Having said that, our host did let us know the day before that it would be happening. It would have been wise on our part to get earplugs. Maybe if you have an early wake up time check to make sure there won't be any events. Other than that it was an incredibly pleasant stay with great, responsive hosts, in an amazing city, for a fantastic price!! I definitely recommend!!

    Response from Stewart And Lucero:

    Sorry about the noise from the party! It was only the second time I've had an event in the house since beginning as an AirBnB host. I'll be more careful in the future.

  • The apartment was fantastic. Beautiful apartment, looks much nicer in person than in the photos, great shower and very clean. Perfect location, a short walk to the market, not a steep climb to get to as many accommodations are and a short walk to center town. The views from the terrace were breath taking , a perfect place to relax and read a book when the sun is setting. Stewart is a very friendly and helpful host.

    May 2014
  • The information Stewart provided was very accurate. The studio was perfect and very clean. The place is close to the center and having breakfast on the patio and looking over the colorful city was great. The only downside was that the bed was a double rather than a queen.

  • We had a great time staying here while visiting Guanajuato. The apartment is modern and nice with a great rooftop! It is an easy walk to the center with plenty of street food to fill your belly on the way. I would def recommend staying here.
