Property description

Florecer Apartments is not a hotel. We consider our five comfortable studios to be boutique apartments for seasoned travelers who prefer to have access to a kitchen and quiet garden. Our goal is to provide modern comfort along with a contemporary Mexican design aesthetic and city accessibility housed within a secure, natural environment. If you want to stay in a truly unique, chic, comfortable, art filled space, this is the place for you! And, it is much quieter than downtown
Guanajuato.

Each one of our five individual apartments expresses an elegant, modern aesthetic with a light Mexican touch. Three of the five apartments are without stairs and all are just steps from a taxi or bus, and a short walk to the center of town. Each apartment is fully insulated and contains either a gas fireplace or gas heater, and a fully equipped contemporary kitchen and bath. All have private outdoor sitting areas, a filtered water system, twin beds (or king) with memory foam and down duvets, ipod dock, microwave, and safe. Each apartment is equipped with it's own internet router for speed and reliability.

We are located directly above the University of Guanajuato. A ten-minute downhill walk brings you to the center of town, within minutes of the city's markets, restaurants and museums. A bus returns every 15 minutes from the University steps. Taxis are readily available and inexpensive, and street parking is available.

We have a gallery and shop, laundry facilities and a massage space available for guests, as well as an accessible on-site manager who is delighted to attend to individual needs. There are gardens and terraces with multiple city and mountain views for reading and relaxing.

Please plan to arrive between 2pm and 9pm. If you would like to arrive before 2pm or after 9pm, please let us know in advance. We will accommodate your schedule if at all possible.

We look forward to your stay with us.

Car: Not Necessary

This jewel of a city has everything a traveler loves...getting lost and then finding a quaint little bar in a tiny neighborhood and making a life long friend, visiting the best of what museums have to offer, eating at a hole in the wall cafe with all the charm in the world, or seeing a performance of the local symphony, perfectly breathtaking. Wander the tiny walkways of Guanajuato for an afternoon never forgotten and for a taste of life in Mexico. You will want to move here as soon as possible!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: An artist since childhood, I've always been interested in the creative and collaborative spirit. For twenty five years I designed and installed large glass installations for municipalities and corporations in the U.S. and abroad. In doing that work, I rarely had time for my own art or for myself. In leaving the rain soaked northwest and moving to Guanajuato, I have been able to regain the joy of working in my studio and the anticipation of working and living with other artists nearby. I created Florecer to be a center where creative people of all types can come together in an interdisciplinary soup, to share their skills and ideas by working together. We recently completed a printmaking studio and an enameling studio will soon be underway; eventually there will be four studios in all with more interdisciplinary projects to come. Join us. Share our vision, soak up a little culture, fun, and friendship and stay in the best place in Guanajuato.

Why the Owner Chose Zona Centro, Guanajuato, Gto., Mexico:
The location of Florecer (meaning to bloom) is easily accessible from downtown and from mostly anywhere in Guanajuato. When you are here it feels as though you are a long way from a city, but once you go through the gate and head down towards the Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, you are almost in the historic center of town.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Guanajuato has a full time symphony and musical events EVERY NIGHT. If you are a music lover, this is the place to be. Easily in a week one could hear chamber music, a symphony performance, jazz, one or two recitals, and dance salsa until dawn....
