EXQUISITE HOME IN DOWNTOWN GUANAJUATO

Guanajuato House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

Welcome to La Malagueña, a getaway that will enthrall your senses and nurture your spirit.

Our house is in the heart of downtown Guanajuato in the most beautiful plaza in town-Plaza San Fernando. From our house you can comfortably walk to most historical and cultural sites and many language schools, restaurants, cafes, and bars. We're only a few steps from the Basilica de Guadalupe, Teatro Juarez, Mercado Hidalgo, and the University of Guanajuato. Since our house is in the heart of downtown you don't have to climb steep narrow streets or callejones.

Our home was originally built in the 18th century and has been restored and remodeled several times, the last time by the renowned Mexican artist, Juan Ibañez. It's made from adobe so it naturally warms and cools the house and the temperature inside is always ideal. Its construction is of stone and pine with copper accents. It takes advantage of the Mexican sun and sky and its position on the most beautiful square in Guanajuato with French doors opening onto the fountain below and a wonderful rooftop garden in which you can sit and while away the time, above it all.

Our place is ideal for the seasoned traveler who prefers the comforts of home combined with the uniqueness of a true Mexican experience.

You'll not only enjoy the comfort, style, and location of our place but also the hospitality of our staff. ¡BIENVENIDOS!!!

My husband and I lived in Guanajuato for many years and loved living there, however, due to the nature of our professions we had to relocate. We come back to Guanajuato every chance we get but when we are not there, we like to share our place with visiting travelers.

Since we both love to travel, we try to provide our guests with the same standards of excellence that we expect when we travel.

Maria Demello purchased this house in 1997

La Malagueña is truly a magical house. There is no other house in town quite like ours. The architecture is so unusual that it's difficult to describe but every room is filled with character and style. There are plants everywhere in the house, even in the bathrooms. The rooftop is a peaceful oasis with more than 100 plants and a great view of the mountains, Plaza San Roque, the University of Guanajuato, the Mercado that make you feel you're on top of the world.

Our location is unbeatable! You are in the center of everything. You don't even have to go out of the house to enjoy Guanajuato because the vibrancy of the city comes to you. When you open the balcony doors to the plaza, you let in the festivities and can hear the concerts, view the performances, sing along with the troubadours or simply people watch as you enjoy a glass of wine or a Margarita.

* Flexible check-in and check-out. No set policy unless we have other guests arriving the same day.

* Bilingual administrator who is only a call away for any needs or recommendations and 24/7 for emergencies.

* We offer great bilingual walking tours of Guanajuato with historical, cultural, and social insights of the downtown and less know but as important sites outside the center of town.

An absolutely wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at La Malaguena. My family of 3 had a wonderful first visit to Guanajuato and a wonderful time at La Malaguena! It was just perfect: it was an amazing historic home that has been well maintained and cared for; it was well decorated, supplied, and appointed; and it was comfortable and peaceful. It overlooks Plaza San Fernando (which is a nice, active but not too active or loud plaza) and is quite close to all other plazas, squares, markets, etc. We had such a short walk to the restaurants, shops, and areas of interest – it was great!

Maria, the owner, was wonderful to work with. She was very prompt, courteous, quite helpful, and professional in all of our communications. Lorena, the property administrator was very helpful and was great to work with as well! I can’t think of any ‘extras’ that are needed or desired.

We liked Guanajuato enough to return in the future, and would definitely stay at La Malaguena again!

Exceeded Our (High) Expectations!

  • 5 of 5
We knew from the photos and description that this was going to be an impressive house; still we were quite amazed! This charming old house has architectural features, furnishings, and character that made our stay just magical. Everything we needed was there, plus lots of space and comforts. Located on a beautiful and lively plaza, we spent hours gazing at authentic Mexican life from our balcony or the upper terrace graced with hundreds -- yes, hundreds of potted plants. Good bars and restaurants are only steps from the house making night life so convenient and easy. The owner and the property manager were delightful to deal with. We highly recommend this beautiful home for a comfortable and memorable stay in the enchanting town of Guanajuato!

Great place to stay in Guanajuato

  • 4 of 5
We had the pleasure to stay in this beautiful colonial house directly on plaza San Fernando. The house has been decorated with many artifacts and artesenias. We appreciated the fresh flowers in multiple rooms. The house has a view on the fountain of the plaza. The roof terraces have a 360 degree view of all the colourful houses of the city and amongst all the tropical plants one can have a relaxing break in the shadow or sun. The housekeeper Lorena showed us around the house and gave explanations and tips of the city. We enjoyed the house very much. It is not really recommended for families with young children nor for elderly people because of the steep and narrow stairs.

My husband and I have stayed in this beautiful casa twice; we just returned home October 10, 2011. We are reluctantly writing our review only because we wish we could keep this secret to ourselves. Once in awhile you find a treasure and wish it were not revealed. This house on the Plaza is a gem. Even if you do nothing else but sit in front of the veranda and watch the people strolling, listen to the local musicians, smell the delicious odors wafting up through open doors from restaurants below you would have a beautiful experience of Guanajuato.

Fabulous home and locale for families or couples

  • 5 of 5
My husband, two teenagers and I spent a glorious week at La Malagueña this summer. Guanajuato, with its colonial churches, historical monuments, diverse museums and multiple theaters, turned out to be an ideal location for a busy family of four looking for rest and recreation. We enjoyed the ease of walking around town, thanks to the fact that only two city streets allow vehicles to circulate. We also relished exploring, both by day and by night, the quaint European-style plazas and streets, without any concern for our safety. Best of all, however, is La Malagueña itself. This distinctive home is a feast for the senses from the moment you open the heavy wood entry doors. Originally designed by a famed movie and theater director, the house is a complete delight! It is as artful as it is spacious: my teens loved having their own rooms, while my husband and I appreciated the solitude of the large master suite and the beautifully appointed living and dining rooms. The tiled kitchen and updated bathrooms were also charming, yet functional. Our favorite part of the home, without a doubt, was the spectacular garden roof terrace. We spent lazy mornings and warm afternoons reading and playing cards surrounded by a wide variety of flowers and plants that attract birds and butterflies. At night the terrace afforded us an amazing 360 degree view of the city lights. Guanajuato is quick cab ride from the Leon airport. La Malagueña’s support staff ensured that our visit was trouble-free. We strongly recommend this unique venue!

This is THE place to stay in Guanajuato!!

  • 5 of 5
If I get a chance to return to Guanajuato, and I hope that I do, I am staying at La Malaguena, hands down. This is a most incredible house, most wonderful location - central to everything! It was spotlessly clean, absolutely beautifully decorated, and Lorena, who manages the house, served as our (delightful) guide for two straight days! She showed us parts of Gto that we would never have found on our own, special things that insiders know. She took us out into the country side where we ate a restaurant where the Gto families eat on Sundays - wonderful! We went to a pottery shop off the beaten path - what a treat! Etc, etc!

A couple of things you should know about the house: a spiral staircase leads to one of the bedrooms. Not something a person with bad balance wants to attempt. A third bedroom has steps to it that are rather oddly made - slightly smaller than your feet, not something that young children or grown ups with bad balance will want to attempt. There is a bedroom on the main floor that has a bathroom close by, which would be the option for the two groups I have mentioned.

The patio and upper deck are something out of a movie - spectacular.

All in all: If you are going to Gto, you owe it to yourself to stay in this house - you won't be disappointed.
