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.
La Malaguena is a dream home in a dream town. The house is warm, welcoming, full of charm and in such a wonderful location. Plaza San Fernando is a hub of activity with restaurants, shops, musicians, and close to everything you'll want to see and do in Guanajuato.
Be sure to book a tour with house manager Lorena to see both the city and the surrounding areas. She is knowledgeable, fun to be around, and made our trip extremely enjoyable. She made sure we knew our way around the city, and that we saw some things outside the city that most visitors may not have the opportunity to experience.
Owner Maria and Manager Lorena are also very caring people. Lorena arranged for immediate medical care when my husband came down with a cold and Maria helped make sure our visit was perfect in every way.
Book a stay at La Malaguena. It will exceed your expectations!
What can I say that hasn't been said? The description and high reviews are all accurate and well-deserved. We were not disappointed. The location is ideal. The property is very authentic and unique with much attention to detail down to the fresh flowers and total ambiance. The property is also quite large with an entry level, living room level that overlooks the plaza, third level with master bedroom and large garden terrace, and a rooftop level for 360 degree views of Guanajuato.
What's hard to describe are the sights, sounds, aromas and energy of Guanajuato that this property is ideally located for, and perfectly compliments. You'll have to experience it for yourself.
What an incredible home right in the middle of Plaza San Fernando! We felt like we were staying in a livable museum. The multi layers of this historic home with its bountiful flora create a truly magical experience. Arrangements were effortless........Maria was very responsive and even arranged for our pick-up at the airport. Once we arrived we were greeted by Lorena who we hired as a guide for a wonderful day of exploring the city. Please take advantage or Lorena and the service she offers - she is a wonderful! I cannot brag enough about our stay with it's amazing decor and convenience to the city. I travel a lot and usually never repeat a trip but I am already planning to come back next year.
We two thoroughly enjoyed our week in this beautiful, multi-storied house. It overlooks a most charming and lively Plaza San Fernando and is close to everything of interest. The view from any window and the roof top is marvelous! Lorena warmly greets you upon arrival and makes you feel right at home. She's the one to call for tours, information or any type of assistance. Maria, the owner, was both attentive and a pleasure to work with. We'll return to this house because it was very comfortable, spacious, and thoughtfully decorated. The garden was a rainbow of healing colors with a magnificent background of majestic mountains and the magical town of Guanajuato. You must spend several days to do justice to this most fascinating region of Mexico.
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!
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!
