“Great house”
Reviewed 2 May 2013 for a stay in March 2013

The house is big, confurtable, and very cozy. It makes you feel to be like home. A great location close to downtown.
Colibris say "Hello" every morning, it's quiet, and very relaxing places. Epicurean would be the perfect adjective to describe the place.

“Lovely stay - nice and welcoming house”
Reviewed 23 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We spent 1 week in this house - we were a group of 10 people. The house was really big enought to welcoming us, we all had a lovely room. I trully recommend this house for the people who desire to spend great time in Guadalajala.
In fact the house is near from everything and it's located in a nice area.
Whatever you are a group of young peolple or familly with children the house is perfect for both.

Ten people was then and is even more adequate for larger parties today. We have had time to update so many things to make our home even more comfortable!

“Great house”
Reviewed 22 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We were a group of 10 people, from 25 to 50 years old and rented the "Casa Dinckinson" for about 10 days.
Everything was amazing, the house is great and very big, with everything you could need in it (kitchen tools, travel guides, internet access, printers...) The beds are awesome and you can easily fit 10 people very comfortably.
The house is located in a very nice neighborhood, with lots of restaurants and bars, and about 15 minuts from downtown by car.
I really felt like home there as nothing useful was missing, I highly recommand Dickinson's Guest House for groups of friends or big families who just look for a very good quality/price rate housing.

“A pleasant place to enjoy our holidays”
Reviewed 21 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We were a group of ten people, as this house has 4 rooms, James: the owner, took the time to arrange something for us. He was very understanding and make us having a wonderfull time in Guadalajara. We thank him very much for the time we spent in the house.
He is truly a professional in this area, and knows perfectly how to manage the house for his guests, even though we had different culture and we were a big group which was not easy at all.

The location is perfect, it's quiet but close to downtown and best places to see in Guadalajara.
Perfect places in this house are:
- the very quiet and shiny patio, where every morning you see Colibris.
- Terasse on the biggest room.
- Living room with a beautiful sound system and nice music.

If you want to have a very enjoyable stay this might be the place to be.

Shaken But Never Stirred.

“Safe & Comfortable - Felt Like Home”
Reviewed 15 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

I recently stayed 7 days at Dickinson Guest House. I was there for cosmetic surgery with Dr. Fernando Guerrerosantos (whom James, DGH Owner, has an excellent rapport with). I chose Dickinson Guest House because it is a very short ride to-and-from the office of ‘Dr. Fernando’ (as he is fondly known of because of his famous father Jose Guerrerosantos, who PIONEERED cosmetic surgery in Guadalajara!). Dr. Fernando’s reputation and credentials are well respected world-wide. The hospital was also only about a 15 minute ride away from the house, and was a first class facility (see photos!!!). The house is also close to the historical center of Guadalajara in downtown GDH, where James took me to shop for friends and family while recovering.
Once there, I realized just what a perfect choice I had made, as the neighborhood is nice and quiet, but just a stones throw from the hustle and bustle of the city! James is American, yet knows his way around this Spanish speaking country and their customs-that made me feel very much at ease. This is not the Mexico I have been reading about…far from it!
My expectations were exceeded on every level - the house was amazing, the accommodations were perfect for recovery, the food was delicious, plentiful, and wonderfully prepared (see photo). The owner, James, was great (he let me be when I needed him to, and was there in a snap when I needed him to be!). I think my favorite thing was my private balcony and en-suite bathroom. However, the flat screen HD television with many channels in English, and a BOSE sound system in my room was up there pretty high also. Oh yes, another fabulous amenity? James provides cellular phones for use in case you leave and need to keep in touch with him (at no extra charge!) and also has a land line for calls to the U.S. (again, at no extra charge!). Speaking of no extra charge...there are NO hidden charges here; it is all inclusive, period. Amazing!
All in all, I give Dickinson Guest House 5 stars, and definitely will be staying there again on my next trip. Even more-so due to the good relationship between James and Dr. Fernando...I will be a repeat customer of both!

Hi jenn,
Yes, it was perfect for 3 couples with the large bed sizes and now an added room with a queen bed makes it even bigger. Hope to see you again soon!

It was a wonderful time to be here in Guadalajara! I'm sorry that some family members were a bit afraid from all of the bad press this last year has bestowed on this beautiful country, but you can now let them know that it is safe here in the center of the country. Look forward to another visit soon!
