Location and Staff - that's about it

About 6 rooms sitting on the 2nd floor of a very busy restaurant in a spanish colonial villa converted to a business establishment. Although booking websites claim that this is a 4 star property, it is far from it. The rooms are decorated to give a modern hip feel but whats lacking is the thought that should have gone into design especially when converting an old building. Lack of ventilation leaves the room musty (and even smelling of mildew !). We slept in a smaller room facing the alley on our first night because the actual master suite we booked did not have functioning AC. They had to call in maintenance and get it fixed b4 we could move in the next day. Although the master suite was much better than the room we slept in on our first night here (smell of mildew) , again lack of proper ventilation meant we had to keep the window open to let the moisture out. The wait staff are good and do try their best to make life easier. So kudos to them. Location is central to all things walkable.. We had to find a copy shop to print our flight itinerary back cos the front desk lacked one. So, based on everything, this place is a 3 star at most. Given that the Hilton that's 5 blocks away and right in the middle of the centro historic square is not much more expensive than this place, I'd do that next time and just visit the restaurant in this building.
Cute & Always Busy!

This place is cute and very beautiful. It also happens to be an extremely popular food spot. We stayed for 5 days and this place (restaurant portion) was always busy- and I mean from the moment it opened until midnight. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating, and in the evening, only guests of the hotel are allowed to eat inside- so noise is very low. As one other reviewer said- it is kind of like hotel rooms inside a cafe. But all the rooms are on the second floor and overlook the restaurant- so no one goes near your room as they have no need to go near or up the stairs. I never once felt worried about myself or my belongings. We’ve stayed in Guadalajara at many different hotels- you are always going to hear outside noise. But honestly it wasn’t bothersome or annoying. And I’m a light sleeper and hate being woken up. I was never woken up by the noise. Every room in this hotel has a theme, and they are all so cute and so different, and all inspired by an artist. The lady that runs the place was kind enough to show us some of the other vacant rooms and they truly are so cool and very artsy. The dining experience is a huge plus too. The food is amazing, and they literally have everything a restaurant would. The only slight disappointment was no pool. And the towels are kind of sandpaper rough. But not like so off putting you can’t use them. The service was great, the staff is great. The room was kept clean. If you’re looking for cute & different, I would highly recommend this place. It’s also near everything major you’d want to see. Would definitely stay here again.
Hotel & restaurant are both first-rate

Big, comfortable rooms & a restaurant that’s lively and fun from breakfast through evening drinks. Park and fountain out front make a great setting. A favorite for locals, and easy to understand why. Short walk to Centro Historico.
Not worth the hassle...concept does not work

This hotel is basically some rooms in a cafe. The restaurant is the main attraction and hotel guests are ignored and mostly an imposition for the ornery, arrogant and non-service oriented staff. Here are a few highlights: -No water the first night and drilling and hammering until about 3 am - paper thin walls so you could hear the front desk clerk coughing and the kitchen staff dropping pots and pans constantly -no working phones for 5 days -half roll of toilet paper in room and. I way to call for more (see comment above) -room was less than spotless with comforter with missing buttons so the I side came out during the night -staff that was always on their phones and felt it more important to chat with each other than paying guests - they would t even acknowledge you standing in front of the desk -park full of homeless in front of hotel and no security revise the anywhere -no hot water in sink (hot water handle didn’t even turn) -AC remote implanted in ceiling (don’t ask !) with bright green light that was on all night and lit the room The ONLY friendly staff member was the housekeeper who at least smiled and asked how you were. It’s evident that the owners are the owners of CHAI restaurant and the hotel is an after thought with no oversight or management of staff and facility. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND BOOK ELSEWHERE !!!!
Centrally located boutique hotel
Reviewed 5 april, 2019
First off, Del Carmen is officially located on a tiny tiny street, which even taxi drivers are not familiar with as most taxi drivers in Guadalajara do not use GPS. After asking three drivers, one pulled out a city map. The hotel is really cute and boutiquey in a Mexican (lots of colour in rooms, arches, different design pieces) sort of way. You dan eat inside or outside alfresco in the square next to the hotel, across of which is a church from the 16th century. It is an easy 10-20 minute walk to main sites in GDL, either East to Chapultepec street or West towards the central cathedral and Mercado San Juan de Dios. We really liked the hotel and location. Two things to note. One, if you want fresh towels, you need to request. Despite the heat outside, our towels did not dry off overnight as rooms are cool. Second, while the manager Jairo speaks excellent English, most of the staff do not. Learn a few key words in Spanish and it will go a long way.
