I travelled to Guadalajara for cosmetic surgery with Dr. Cardenas. Not knowing any of the spanish language I was a bit nervous, James helped me translate, exchange US Dollars for Pesos, Brought me to the clinic for appointments, which by the way is very close to his house.

The first thing that struck me was that the guest house, located down a quiet leafy street, is like finding an oasis of calm in this bustling city, especially after having just battled the afternoon peak hour traffic! The second thing was the warm welcome extended by our host, James Dickenson. The third thing was the delightful ambience, comfort and...

Jim welcomed us warmly, gave us the key to the house, a tour of the kitchen, took us up to our nice rooms and showed us how to use the washer and drier. Although this is not a B&B, He took us to the store a few blocks away so we could pick out what we wanted him to stock...

I stayed 5 days in the Dickinson Guest House with 7 others colleagues attending a conference. The guest house is located is in a nice, quiet neighbourhood.The rooms are very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was excellent, with a great choice of sweet and savoury food. Free-access to the internet was also provided. This is excellent value-for-money.

Having stayed here before, I already knew what to expect. The bedrooms are all very well cleaned and maintained and well arranged, as well as the newly tiled bathrooms.

My recent vacation to Guadalahara was fun and memorable. I have never been there. The weather was pleasant enough, although a little warm for those of us who are used to the San Francisco chill, but i know it was not the high season. I decided that due to all the construction work that's going on downtown in preparation for...

Better than a hotel, our American host put us at ease in Mexico's second largest city. The home is clean, comfortable, and is close to many restaurants within walking distance. You're in a neighborhood, with a pretty little park nearby and a main street two blocks away. Cabs are easy to find and prices are reasonable - Jim was a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Dickinson Guest House , within walking distance to the Guadalajara Expo Center is a cost effective hotel-alternative to the many new luxury hotels that abound in this well maintained area of the city. We are available as a whole house rental, which is popular for those coming from the North during the winter months-or we rent rooms out to corporate or business travelers that need to be close to the Exposition center and this business hub of the city. This large home in the Chapalita neighborhood of the city is well know by locals. It is not to be confused with Lake Chapala, another destination of about an hours' drive away. We also have a shortcut to the very enjoyable towns of Tlaquepaque and Tonala, home of many artisan shops that are just beyond the historical district, a short ride away. Our business services for the traveler that needs fast internet service will be surprised to experience speeds that are actually superior to even the finest hotels in this pricey area of Guadalajara. The fully equipped kitchen will be a place for those who enjoy cooking for a group or for themselves. It is also has plenty of storage space for beverages and snack foods for those who prefer eating out at the many great restaurants that surround us. Come and feel the difference of the personal touches and amenities offered, while enjoying your privacy that is very much part of your wanting a private home. There are several spaces in this large property to enjoy with your friends or colleagues while still enjoying your private bedroom. Now that the business meetings and conventions are closeby, this home has become a popular alternative for 6-8 single guests or 4-5 couples on a stop-over visit to other Western cities in Mexico. If you are travelling as a group, why pay the high prices of separate hotel rooms when you can have a private room in a house and still be with colleagues or family? If you are looking for a week-end in the city-coming from Puerto Vallarta, bring some friends and take advantage of all the space to enjoy while at home! An excellent choice to stay in Mexico's 2nd city, for 10 years now-and counting! ... more   less
