Guadalajara Metropolitan Area
The Dickinson Guest House is a quick walk or a free Uber ride to the nearby Expo-Guadalajara on a tree lined street that is surrounded by all of the new luxury hotels in the city, and a park on both sides of the property. We are a cost effective Hotel-Alternative for groups travelling together for the same convention or for friends or families coming as tourists or for perhaps a wedding. We have been in business for 10 years now and chose this location because it is a short ride to the historical area of the city, yet just outside of it's bustle, for more quiet nights-to get ready for your next days adventure-or work at the Expo-Center- which is by far our largest renter- for it's proximity to this large venue and it's value during some of the larger events held there. Many tourists choose a downtown location, so we do let... Read more

Interaction with guests
Depending on the size of the group that is renting, we try to give our guests as much privacy as they wish to have. Someone is always available by phone numbers listed on the kitchen whiteboard. We want you to be comfortable and feel at home. We know that we have achieved this-regardless of what booking site or direct phone call was used to book this large, comfortable home in Guadalajara, Mexico. The only big change that we have made over the years is the convenience of sending check in numbers to guests just before their arrival so that there is never any waiting I the event we can not meet you at the exact time you get here, due to traffic or a later flight.

This was my daughter's wedding. I highly recommend this house for families. The gardens around the area are great,

Management response:

We are glad to hear that you enjoy the quiet, especially late at night! The noise of the big city is never far away, but the huge trees can muffle it well in this fun neighborhood. Thank you for taking the time to write a review! I often forget to ask. Come back and see us for your next family...

I have stayed at this home on a trip to Mexico last year. I thought I had left a pleasant review , but we get so busy that I do not remember. The hosts and maid were as friendly as I recall. I seem to remember that the last time it took a day or two to understand the humour...

Great guests! Hope to see you for the book fair in 2017!

James has a great house that I highly recommend! It's located on a quiet street, and is walking distance to many great places to eat. The rooms were nice and clean, with comfy beds. The master bedroom was wonderful and spacious, and has a lovely balcony, where we spent most of our time just relaxing. James himself was very friendly,...

Management response:

Thanks for your visit from the Netherlands. I am still trying to catch up on these thoughtful reviews. There are so many new Booking sites in this century! James

About the neighbourhood
The area would be described as a nice middle class neighborhood with parks, sopping malls and 2 Supermarkets. It is a self contained area if you wish to stay on the West side of the city. New hotels are being opened at a furious pace to keep up with the very large conventions just a few blocks away, and the restaurant scene ranges from freshly made tacos to French bistros and everything in between. You will find any cuisine you desire, all within walking distance. And if you are not in the mood to go out, everyone delivers. It is a short ride to downtown and to Plaza Andares in the other direction by taxi or our Uber account. Public transportation is two blocks from the house in 2 directions.
Getting around
Taxi, walking, or our Uber account will get you anywhere you desire-from Plaza Andares to the Historical district. We are in a self contained neighborhood with the best restaurants in the city-for any pocketbook. Most of them can be walked to day or evening. Two parks flank both sides of this large home, making it a very social experience if you want it-yet beyond these gates is your refuge to enjoy with whom you want to be with and the privacy that most groups want, after a busy day at the Expo Center or a day of shopping or site seeing.
Car not needed
