David's casona is beautiful preserved and in a great location, a quite street close to great food and the centro historico. Kitchen has everything if you don't feel like eating out.
David ist ein sehr netter und hilfsbereiter Mensch. Die Unterkunft entspricht auch der Beschreibung. Ich persönlich bin nicht lange geblieben,aber dafür kann David nichts.Mir ist Guadalajara einfach zu laut und zu hektisch. Berlin ist ein ruhiges Dorf dagegen,also wer richtig Action braucht für den ist Guadalajara genau richtig.Ich danke Dir David
Nothing but good things to say about my experience! David was a wonderful host and was always happy to give suggestions and a helping hand in the city. The house is located right downtown, however is quite safe and presents a relaxed atmosphere. The bedroom was also huge and very quiet considering its central location. I recommend this house to anyone visiting the city for short or long term stays. Thanks for everything!
Staying at David's house was a pleasure through and through. The room and house are both large, nicely kept, and have a wonderful traditional colonial ambiance. The location is ideal, right in the center of downtown, but also quiet and tucked away from much of the city noise. David is a wonderful host. He is laid back, friendly, and very accommodating. He is also knowledgeable about the city and helped guide us to some of our better experiences. I would recommend staying here to anyone visiting Guadalajara.
I stayed at Mansion Santa Monica for about three months, and I loved it! David is incredibly helpful and showed me around the city when I first arrived in Guadalajara. The house is clean and comfortable, and the roommates are amazing. And David's dog, Hanna, is a total sweetheart!
The house is situated minutes from downtown, very close to stores, cafes, markets, and museums. There are also buses and a train station nearby to take you anywhere you want to go in Guadalajara. I definitely recommend that you visit Guadalajara and stay with David!
David was an excellent host. He showed me around the neighborhood, took me to the bank, market and laundromat. His dog, Hanna, was lots of fun, too. The house is in the perfect location in historic central Guadalajara. It's close to the subway train and there are many buses nearby but I preferred walking or using David's extra bicycle. Most of the house guests are college-aged but I felt welcome even though I'm a retiree. Guadalajara felt very safe and I'm happy I got to spend a month there. The rooms are basic but very adequate for me.
Excelente localización de la casona, situada a pocos minutos del centro de la ciudad y a unos quince minutos andando para el CUCSH. La casa es bien acogedora, limpia y buena onda con los compañeros. La habitación muy amplia y luminosa, bien cuidada, y David, un casero muy generoso y cercano. Recomendable!.
