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.
A quaint get-away in Guadalajara
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

Travel Blogs from Tlaquepaque
After walking the town and getting acclimated, we chose El Jardin de Ninette for dinner as we wanted something special. I definitely wore the wrong shoes to walk to the restaurant. Thick soles are the name of the game with these cobblestones.
We met Oscar the chef, who is a young handsome guy who spent some time in the US as a chef. ...
The breakfasts in this hotel are amazing. A huge array with desserts from jelly to cookies, cakes to sweet bread and croissants. Hot food included spicy scrambled eggs with chopped chicken, spinach and peas. There was a huge pot of melted chocolate – maybe to drizzle on
croissants? There were chilli-covered slices of pork, a hot potato-apple casserole. All so unusual. But the clincher was mimosa! Yes, a bottle of bubbles (Chandon) on ice alongside orange juice ...
... the back of the pack during our walkabout through Tlaquepaque so I better deal with it before it gets worse.
I want to thank the 180 visitors so far who have read my blog - I really appreciate you following us here in the south. It's 14 days left until we head back north on the 20th - we'll be sad to leave when that time comes around.
... have met along the way, that spend days or weeks at each location. They have different agendas, as they need to get back to the U.S. for different reasons; visa status, jobs, families and homes. It is more expensive to travel this way. We would end up draining our budget if we were to travel this way. In addition, I just prefer to take my time and have no set agenda to go by.
We have been on schedules all of our lives. As children, we had to be on ...
... to Tlaquepaque. It's about a 45 minute drive as this is really just a suburb of GUAD. It didn't seem like any time at all before we arrived, because we seemed to hit it off from the get go. Phil is the quintessential east coaster from New York, I loved his pony tail and his honest, no ******** attitude. Hopefully we can hook up with them if we ever make a return trip, they seem like a couple in love and it showed.
