Casa de Las Flores
Ranked #1 of 8 Tlaquepaque B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 April 2009

Casa de las Flores is a wonderful and hospitable stop in a busy shopping area. Stan is a great innkeeper and his breakfast is wonderful. The guests are treated like family. We've stayed here numerous times, as have most of the guests we've met there.

What can we say about this wonderful gem of a B&B that hasn't already been said? This was our fourth stay at Casa de las Flores and we loved it every bit as much as the first time. Our wonderful hosts, Stan, Jose, Carlos (nice to have him back) and Poncho (the dog) make us feel so at home and welcome us like friends. We must also mention Rosario, who makes the very best margarita and serves a wonderful dessert (made by Stan, of course) every evening - make sure you leave room for it! The rooms are artfully decorated, spacious and clean. Breakfasts are always a treat! The garden and patio area is a wonderful place to sit and relax, read or meet fellow travelers and when lit up at night, is simply magical. We hope to return again next year to this little piece of paradise.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Stan and Jose for creating this perfect jewel of a spot, a Mexican dream. Omar and I have never felt so welcome and at home as we do in Casa de las Flores. The food is incredible, there are flowers and plants in every direction, and the after dinner conversation is lively, informative, and fun. Only the neatest people go there! But Stan, Jose, and the Casa staff are the best part--they are not only friendly, but are indeed friends, ready with any help and adivce and offering a full array of services to the traveler. Omar and I write www.365mexico.com and live in Guadalajara, so we know many of the hotels there, and we recommend Casa de las Flores hands down. It is convenient to everything, relaxing, beautiful--an amazing place. Trust us--you won't want to leave!

The beauty of the place would have no soul without the people, but as everyone else notes, the 'leadership' and staff are nothing less than an object lesson for the hospitality industry. I don't have much to add to the accolades...I am bummed we had only one night there-and not because we didn't want more, but we inquired too late. Vacancies abounded everywhere on our trip, except here and one place in GTO that is always full as well.

My only disillusionment, and it is not a great one nor a reason to look elsewhere (you won't likely find an equal, let alone a better): I didn't feel the room was anything to write home about,. Though surely it's only because the public areas are so stunning, did they call out to me for comparison. It was fine--just not 'special' nor especially comfy. I stayed in #1 (a kind and free upgrade because we had such a hard time connecting me with a single night that offered a room!) and I felt it needed something(s) to give it some coziness- a warmer ambience-it is a large room that is furnished in a very linear/symmetrical way which doesn't help and lacked the kind of comfortable reading and talking chairs (which are rare in this industry) most places don't have room for, but here you could have placed several comfortable chairs and instead it was traditional Mexican wood furniture with completely erect wood rail backs and a thin seat cushion (unlike the dining patio whose lovely metal chairs are appointed with what seems like the finest patio cushions available in the world-Yum!) Myself, I don't care for the sink/mirror being outside the bathroom itself, which is very small. It didn't matter for one night, but with a long stay I think a room that feels (not the looks-it looks very nice more a like a retreat is possible here, but not achieved.

Exceptional:
*superlative service from the correspondence to every interaction within
*breakfast/kitchen/bar--Stan's poached eggs florentine were divine. If I can return I will definitely request the extra service of his cooking a special meal.
*the collection of folk art, they've amasssed a lot and varied artesania, lots to see (and Stan's pottery tour in his home) They sell a fair amount too, but it wasn't even mentioned. the ultimate soft sell- again they are a class act.
*the garden and patio, truly comfortable and gorgeous
* Poncho. I'm a sucker for a cute and friendly pooch (if you're not, don't worry, I wanted his attention, that's why he was near!)

I don't mark that Casa de Flores is a 'hidden' gem because the occupancy rate and these reviews suggest people are definitely in the know! Get your reservations in early or ask anyway and cross your fingers :-)

As a beginning student in folk art/Mexican history, and a first timer at Casa de las Flores, I was most fortunate to meet the owners who manage this paradise with great presence, flourish, care and smarts.

For anyone remoted interested in local arts and culture there is no other place to stay. The property is luxuriously and lovingly decorated with folk art/art collections, and with full attention to all details insuring guests' comfort and enjoyment. Casa de las Flores is an experience, not just
a B&B.

Carlos' kind patience and friendly way of being everywhere at once, was most appreciated. My time here was filled with many unexpected, surprise treats: Stan's personal tour of the art collection, key suggestions for Tlaquepaque, purchasing folk art and, always, the enlightening conversations. This is what true hospitality is all about, not to mention the sheer beauty of the grounds, home cooked gourmet food and a lovely, clean, well appointed room that showcased more art, great interior architecture and a terrific bath with extra vanity products.

The Museo Regional de la Ceramica in Tlaquepaque was a wonderful follow up to time at Casa de las Flores.

Enjoy, enjoy!
