Wonderful bed and breakfast - a quiet oasis in the bustle of the big city. Great hosts!

We introduced ourselves to Carol, and the owners, Javier and Martha, and Lulu put her name on the list. She started off with "Who's Sorry Now" and then "Dancing in the Streets", which got everyone's attention. She went back up and did the Titanic's "My Heart will go On" and wrapped it up with "The Prayer". That's all it took. I was sitting with Javier and Martha booking three gigs over the next two months.
... people could hear me say "WOW, this is amazing". Far from the typical Caribbean shops with store after store of the same **** - the variety of things for sale in these pedestrian only streets was incredible. While we certainly couldn't buy much on this trip, there were things that I could see in our new casa someday. From lights, to couches, to tables, the real issue would be deciding on the right piece as there were just so, so ...
After our walk on the beach at Barra de Navidad we stopped by a sidewalk cafe and sat at the table closest to the street with available parking immediately in front of us. A "car" pulled up - a Troller, it looks like a Jeep but isn't, it's made by Ford in Brazil - it was covered in different decals from all over and it had an image of North America & South America that showed a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Casa de Las Flores Tlaquepaque
WOW! The staff/ owner were exceptional and really came through for us!!!
Quaint and local and friendly - the best B&B I have been in for a long time! The staff were so helpful and spoke excellent English. They got cabs for us, made phone calls, reservations, sightseeing tips, ... above and beyond my expectations. The court yard and gardens reminded me of a tropical oasis and sitting on the patio watching the birds and sunsets bring back great memories. The rooms were clean, rather large and very comfortable, ours even had a/c and a ceiling fan. I will stay there again in a heart beat as the food was delicious and the over all experience, top of the line! Thanks Stan for a wonderful vacation! (4 days)
We stayed for only one night at Casa de Las Flores but I'm sure we will have really fond memories of our night in Tlaquepaque for years to come. We immediately felt welcome and comfortable by our host and staff, who were very helpfull and genuinely seemed to enjoy meeting and chatting with guests, offering tips on all sorts, from good restaurants in the area to travel in mexico in general. The grounds and gardens were georgeous as were the humming birds. Earlier in our trip to mexico we stayed a night in the centre of Guadalahara, interesting to have a wonder around, but we would thoroughly recommend staying in Tlaquepaque (and if you can, at this B&B) as an alternative, we much preferred it. Also, the cooked breakfast option was gourmet!
The highlight of my trip to Guadalajara
My week-long stay at Casa de Las Flores was the highlight of my trip to Guadalajara and surrounds. The garden is a subtropical Eden, the architecture of the guest house is gorgeous, the gourmet breakfasts and desserts served on the patio are to die for. The guest rooms, gardens, patios, and main house are chockful of a wonderful collection of folk art. Stan and Jose and their staff are attentive, helpful, and very knowledgeable about local history, art,and the sights to see. I would have been very content to have never left the grounds of Casa de Las Flores. It's that kind of place.
I looked at trip advisor in order to help me make a decision of where to stay in Guadalajara. After reviewing all of the remarks, I choice Casa de Las Flores. It was the right decision! I usually book in the heart of the city, but was glad I choice the suburbs. From Casa de Las Flores, it was easy and inexpensive to take the bus to town. The B&B is also located by a couple of other interesting (art) towns and easy to get to by bus. While you have no television at Casa de Las Flores, you do not need one! The nightly gathering on the patio is all the entertainment one needs. Stan is a very gracious host and helps you feel very comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic. My only complaint is that Stan needs to offer juice at every breakfast for those of us that don't drink coffee or tea. The room was very clean and shower was great. I usually take an airbed with me to help deal with the hard beds, but was able to sleep directly on the mattress without any additional padding. There was no air conditioning, but the ceiling fans in the room kept the place comfortable. We had an additional unexpected guest that stayed with us that Stan accommodated without any advanced notice. When I return to Guadalajara, I will most certainly stay at Casa de Las Flores!
Nobody does it better
This is without a doubt the nicest B&B we've ever stayed in. Charming decor, beautiful gardens and excellent staff. This is the standard by which all B&B's should rate themselves though few would compare.
What a find Casa de las flores
A great B & B. What a find. Great rooms, that are not only clean and comfortable but also very quite. Something of an accomplishment for a B & B in Mexico. The staff was fabulous and saw to our every whim.
A piece of heaven in Tlaquepaque
I'm SO happy to have found this wonderful B&B/Inn in the heart of Tlaquepaque! The rooms are big and comfortable; the decor authentic - makes me want to come home and redecorate in Mexican style! The breakfasts are abundant and delicious. The lush gardens and spacious patios are welcoming at all hours of the day. The hosts and staff are friendly and helpful. It's a great place, and I can hardly wait to go back!
Incredibly beautiful gardens
My husband and I always stay at Casa de los Flores when we travel to Guadalajara. The rooms are gorgeous, and there's always something new and beautiful. The breakfasts are always good, but when Stan cooks they are off the scale! The staff is very courteous and helpful, they go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. And sitting in those gardens for breakfast or a glass of wine in the evening you can't believe you are in a big city...it's a world apart. I highly recommend this B and B.
Mostly Thumbs Up
I enjoyed the service, cleanliness and hot shower with good water pressure. I felt that the staff was geniunely concerned about me having a good stay. Cleanliness of the room and the drinking water was taken seriously (and should not be underestimated). Finally, the shower was nice and hot and clean, which I must say was a welcome change from several other places. As an added bonus, one of the hosts, Stan, made a dessert treat for his guests. One downside was the fact that the breakfast was somewhat skimpy; something I didn't expect from a host who is a gourmet chef. That withstanding, I'd come back for sure.
Please see my review another neighborhood B&B, Quinta Don Jose, found just blocks away from Casa de Las Flores.
Casa de Las Flores, Tlaquepaque
Wonderfully located close to the ´´centro´´ area of Tlaquepaque - Stan & Jose are the perfect hosts offering the best advice and assistance for travelers to Guadalajara. Casa de Las Flores operates along the lines of a Bed & Breakfast but is one of few hotels in the area to capture the best of Guadalajara. Excellent location for a shopping trip. Very clean rooms
