Why Gregorio and Lorena Luke chose Guadalupe Inn

Abundio is warm, light-filled, welcoming place for families and groups to stay - for vacation or for business in the near by business district or UNAM. The location is fabulous -walking distance to 30+ restaurants, 1/2 block from the bus terminal, It has a private parking spot and onsite laundry and internet so you do not need to leave home for the basics. It is located in a lovely area of Mexico City and an easy walk to many restaurants and coffee houses so you can stroll to breakfast or for coffee in the morning. The lovely on-site garden is perfect for a mother with a small child to play as is the small park that is 1/2 block away. Public transportation is also 1/2 block away for those interested in using the wonderful bus system to escape Mexico City traffic. Many sites of interest are near by, and easy access to UNAM, world trade center, and business districts as well.

Wonderful home and neighborhood for families and couples

  • 5 of 5

We weren’t familiar with this neighborhood but fell in love with it immediately. We were able to walk home from an incredible San Angel Inn dinner, and also nearby is Hunan, probably the best Chinese restaurant in the city. So safe and picaresque, with farmer’s market type stalls around the nearby traffic circle park. Uber drivers never had a problem finding it, and there’s other easy public transportation close. Great breakfasts nearby too! The home is immaculate yet comfortable, spacious yet intimate, and beautifully appointed, with a brick parquet floor, warm wood paneling, a great kitchen and a lush, serene garden. And the art! It adorns the walls with just the right amount, the right mix of styles, and never overwhelming. The home is perfect for 2 to 3 families, with two en-suite bedrooms upstairs and two downstairs. Our boys were able to have some privacy and so were we! Bottom line, we made great memories from a great home base to enjoy the city. My two favorites were the sunlight streaming into the master bedroom in the morning, and the wonderful spa baths after long days exploring. Absolutely recommend!!
