“A once in a lifetime experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2013

Casa Zuniga is a special place created by a remarkable individual, Rick Zuniga. High on the hillside but only a short distance from the Jardin (main square), Casa Zuniga offers stunning views and a great base to explore Guanajuato. But what really makes Casa Zuniga special is Rick. His knowledge of the area and its rich history along with his enthusiasm contributed more to our stay than we expected. Thank you Rick!

Rick’s house is very large and it is easy to get lost in but it is also easy to turn a corner and be impressed by one of Rick’s murals or sculptures from found objects. And don’t forget to check out the roof! Rick, his wife Carmen, and staff are all gracious and make you feel welcome in their home. The rooms are basic in their decorations but the location and views tend to make up for it. And Rick’s enthusiasm and willingness to share information and take you on tours to the churches, mines, etc are incredible. If you are look for quaint, colonial-style accommodation, this may not be for you but if you are looking for clean, efficient rooms in a fantastic location with wonderful breakfasts and a great host who will give you an unique experience, this is your place!

We spent two nights at Casa Zuniga prior to going to San Miguel and had a fantastic time. Great location with amazing views of the city and easy access to the Tram down into town. Two of the highlights were the authentic Mexican breakfasts and Ricks history and storytelling of the sites around Guanajuato. Make sure you ask him for a brief overview of the lovely murals and his art work depicting the history of the area. We will visit and stay at Casa Zuniga again!

Location of this hotel is very close to El Pipila. So one gets amazing view of the beautiful Guanajuato. I was there for only one night. Rick Zuniga (the owner) gave us the free tickets to use the ropeway for going up & down to city center. Breakfast was very tasty. Would love to stay again!!

We have just returned from a trip to Guanajuato where we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Zuniga. I chose this B&B thanks to many positive comments on Trip Advisor. We had a bit of trouble finding the place, as our GPS doesn't understand that there are small pedestrian streets. It is at the top of the hill overlooking the city. At first I was disappointed that we weren't in the town. I was foolish, because the view from the top of the hill was incredible. There is a funicular ten feet from their doorway to transport you directly to the square. We used this to come up to the B&B, however, the walking path down to the town was wonderful. We have visited many places in Mexico, but I think Guanajuato is now my favourite. Our secure parking was paid for by Carmen and Rick and we were given a multiple use ticket for the funicular as well. They also paid for the porters to carry our luggage (on their shoulders) down the stairs to the B&B. Both Carmen and Rick were extremely knowledgeable and very interesting to listen to. The house has many wall murals, painted by Rick describing the history of Guanajuato. Breakfast was tremendous. We sat at the large dining room table and were served by Carmen and two lovely girls. The pool was 87 degrees but we were too busy sightseeing to take the time to enjoy this added treasure. The house is multi-levelled and is very interesting as well. We were with two other couples and all of our rooms were very large and very comfortable. We will definitely return. Suggestion, if you are driving- we had one of the tour guides (that flag you down as you enter the city) to help us find the B&B. We thought about paying a taxi to guide us, the tunnels are interesting but difficult to navigate.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are good.

Rick is a vey generous and welcoming host. He knows so much about the history of the area and he is happy to take the time to tell you about it. Rick's house is perched on a hill overlooking the old town. It can be easily reached in less than 5 minues on the funicular (an attraction itself - Rick provides passs for free during your stay) or for a 30 to 40 pesos taxi ride (only needed if you're out late). Our room had spectacular views of the old town and a large open plan living / bedroom / bathroom. Free wi-fi is provided but no TV (not that you will need one). All in all a very nice place to stay. He also has an amazing and very long brand new pool with great views.

Our home is open to the guests. Patios, pool, galleria, gym, laundry area, kitchen area and a television area. This is just our home and your home during your stay. However, like most homes, there are no televisions inside each of the bedrooms.

We do our best to give each guest their money's worth. we'll keep working at it.

My wife and I stayed here the first of Nov. for four nights. The view from our window looking down into the city was so amazing, ever changing, morning shadows, moon rise. Such a treat! Carmen's breakfasts were in a league by themselves--superb, unique, delicious! The fact that the funicular is right there to take you down into the heart of the city and back up is really a special feature of this place as well. Rick is a force of nature! He has a passion for the city, its history and people. Take his recommendations for a real understanding of the role of this city in the history of Mexico. We were so pleased!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. It's wonderful when for us when guests accept our hospitality and fully enjoy their stay. This is just a home with guests living in it with us. We made the home for everyone that stays with us to enjoy. It's our luck that we have the view and the rail tram that can zip you to the heart of the village in just 90 seconds. We hope to see you again.

Carmen and Rick - the owners - virtually offer their very intricate and original home to be yours for the duration of your stay. Both constantly add and modify this multi-level building which includes a pool and terrific terraces with views of the charming historical city of Guanajuato. We were 3 and occupied a large 2-bedroom suite with vanity separate from the shower and toilet. ...and what a sumptuous breakfast! ...and different every day! The location is unparalled. Only steps up to the monument 'Pipila' on top of the hill and steps down to the funicular for which the B & B owners offer free tickets. A place and owners you will cherish for a long time.
