La Perla Boutique Bed & Breakfast, Guadalajara
La Perla Hotel Boutique B&B is nestled in the safe and youthful neighbourhood of Colonia Americana in Guadalajara, mere yards from lively Chapultapec and at the heart of the historical centre. Conveniently tucked around the corner from the main avenida, you can comfortably walk to local eateries, fine dining establishments and watering holes packed with college students unwinding after a day of studies.
The location is great, but that’s far from the whole story. Upon arrival, in fact from first email contact, you’ll be warmly greeted by Lars, an American Expat. Lars is part of a team that has transformed this mansion, formerly owned by famed Mexican actress Guillermina Grin, into one of the loveliest hospitality experiences we’ve had anywhere.
Once you make your way upstairs to one of the large and immaculately decorated rooms, you’ll be keen to fall flat onto your back disappearing into the duvet and pillows. Fight the urge, for there is much more yet to do. We dropped off our bags, instantly got comfy and headed down to chat. We knew right away we were in good hands.
Exploring Guadalajara can be daunting, especially when you only have a few days to see it all. Lars and Memo shared all the best to see and do in the immediate area and helped us map out our week. Adrian spent a couple of hours on our first morning showing us around the main sites in the downtown area. Not only did this give us a great starting point for navigating ourselves around, but he had some really interesting information and history to share about the city too. With the guidance of the team at La Perla, we felt very comfortable roaming the area and discovering our own hidden gems, returning excited and exhausted.
Early evenings were spent sharing stories with Lars, who invited us to join him for a glass of wine – a lovely way to make you feel at home after a tiring day of exploring.
