About the Property

2 Bedrooms with Ensuite. Best panoramic views in the city and 5 min walk to town

Welcome to Casa Pipila; a beautiful Mexican style colonial building overlooking the picturesque city of Guanajuato. We are situated only 5 minutes walk from the Historic Center; close enough to enjoy the diverse selection of activities, restaurants and sights but far enough away to create a private and tranquil atmosphere where you can relax. You will find yourself at home here. Please note checkin is from 3pm to 10pm.Also, we do not accept pets or children under 7 years of age,sorry



Why stay at Casa Pipila?

- Fully equipped living facilities
- Hand crafted furnishings and traditional Mexican decor
- Comfortable and tranquil atmosphere
- Friendly and knowledgeable staff
- Safe and Secure neighborhood

More:
Casa Pipila has 2 apartments, each with a private entrance and fully equipped facilities for cooking, dining, sleeping and relaxing. The living areas are cozy, with timber furnishings and traditional Mexican decor. The french doors bring natural light and feature panoramic views of this unique and beautiful colonial city. Each apartment has two bedrooms (both with private bathroom). They can sleep up to 5 people (3 in one room and 2 in another - 2 double and 1 single bed with pillow top mattresses).

Casa Pipila also has 3 large, beautiful garden terraces which guests are invited to enjoy. Each terrace is equipped with tables and chairs, hammocks and fruit trees. The perfect location to relax, study Spanish or enjoy a glass of wine (or maybe all three).

The owner Dermot is from Ireland where he previously ran a successful Bed and Breakfast. Several years ago he moved to Guanajuato and fell in love with this magical, romantic city. Over the past year Dermot has worked extensively on renovating Casa Pipila to maintain its Mexican charm and character. Dermot enjoys sharing his wealth of knowledge surrounding Guanajuato and can help with any enquires. He often takes guests for free walking tours around the city - just ask him!

We can accommodate for short term and long term stays. If you are looking to stay for a month or longer please message us for our 'special' long term rates. We are happy to recommend or arrange other services around town such as Spanish schools, Tours, Buses, Real Estate, etc.

Please email us with any questions or requests you may have. It would be our pleasure to accommodate you.

OTHER:
-Guanajuato is a Unesco Heritage Site, 4 hours from Mexico City and a day trip away by bus to San Miguel and León.
-The apartment is a 5 minute walk to the Beautiful Historic Center, Callejon del Beso, and a 6 minute walk to the Pipila statue and the cable car.
-We are a 15 minutes walk or a $3 taxi ride away from a cinema and large supermarket with international wines and foods.



IMPORTANT:
Guanajuato is located in a narrow valley with small streets and lots of stairs that wind up the mountainside. While this makes up a lot of the cities charm, it unfortunately means our apartments are not wheel chair accessible or appropriate for people who may have difficulty with stairs (both uphill and downhill).

Car: Not Necessary

It is important to note that Guanajuato is located in a narrow valley with small streets and lots of stairs that wind up the mountainside. While this makes up a lot of the cities charm, it unfortunately means our apartments are not wheel chair accessible or appropriate for people who may have difficulty with stairs (both uphill and downhill). We strongly recommend that when guests first arrive and walk down to the town that they take a taxi ($3 max) back up to their apartment to ensure they don't get lost in the winding streets. This doubles as a scenic tour through the amazing tunnel network underneath the town. Details on how to do this are available in the guest arrival booklet available in your apartment.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I moved here from Ireland 4 years ago because I fell in love with Guanajuato. I worked in the hospitality business for years and I love meeting new people. I will be very happy to share with you all my favorite places here in this magical, romantic city.

Why the Owner Chose Zona Centro, Guanajuato, Gto., Mexico:
I chose this property for the large outdoor space and the breathtaking views. From the garden terrace you can hear the music of the alleyway singers, the Callejonadas, just down the street. It has a great ambiance day and night.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Each apartment has a spectacular view of the city. The kitchens and decor are all traditional Mexican style and have been recently renovated to maintain its Mexican charm.
