Beautiful place, great host, delicious breakfastPosted Feb 19, 2014
Rick is the best host we have had on our trip. We are spending 6 weeks in Mexico, one of which was at Zuniga. He was helpfull and friendly from the second we stepped through the door. The casa is his own personal vision, a microcosm of Guanajuato, meandering and serpentine, loaded with beautiful sculptures made by Rick and murals on the walls painted from his sketches. His wife, Carmen, and her staff make huge breakfasts that were the best we had on the whole trip. The tap water is purified, treated and softened so no worries about disentary. If you need a ride to the bus station or airport, they have a driver. Make sure you ask Rick about the history of the town and the story of Hidalgo and Pipila.

Your home in Guanajuato!Posted Jan 6, 2014
Pros: Spectacular view, big rooms, home like experience
Location: Excellent location. It links to city center by furnicular which is next door.
I am hesitant to call it a hotel. It's rather a guest house where you feel like at home. You will hear your name often rather thant the "Sir" or "Mam´" treatment at any hotel. Rooms are huge with spectacular views from the city. No TV sets but you don't need one in a place like Guanajuato where there are a lot of things to see. Convenient location. Next door is the funicular which take you from up in the hills to the city center. ( Be aware service stops at 10PM but you can ride a cab back home for $40 pesos). Breakfast is provided by the host. This is a full breakfast not toast with jelly and butter and some coffee. You have scrambled eggs, mashed beans, fruits, bread, avocado, etc. You can also interact with other guest in the dining room. I have travelled the world and is the first time I have felt a home experience in terms of accomodation. The host (Rick) makes you feel like an old friend and cares you have a wonderful experience in Guanajuato.

Beautiful Rooms with Excellent views of GuanajuatoPosted Nov 27, 2013
Pros: The staff, the rooms, the view, the location, the breakfast. Everything!!!
Cons: I want to offer constructive feedback, but I honestly can't think of anything that needs to be improved. Our stay was fantastic.
Location: Prime location. Walking distance to everything, yet far away to offer a quiet place to relax. Many museums, including Museo de la Momias, are nearby.
We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Casa Zuniga. Our Maxito room was beautiful with breathtaking views of the city. Rick, the owner, was extremely friendly and helpful. He was more than happy to let us use his computer to look up times for the bus and help us to book taxis. The room we stayed in was beautiful and clean. We had a comfy bed and a shower with great pressure and hot water. The breakfast was delicious and authentic. More than just fresh fruit and eggs. It was lovely to sit around the long breakfast table with other guests and share travel stories. The hotel or casa, if you like, was in a prime location. High above the city to offer spectacular views, yet still close enough to walk and not have to worry about transport. The Funicular was excellent and took us down into the city in minutes. Alternatively, you can take the steps down into the city, which we chose to do more often than not. Overall our stay at Casa Zuniga was truly enjoyable and relaxing. We didn't experience one hiccup in all our time at Casa Zuniga and in Guanajuato. I would definitely recommend visiting Guanajuato and staying at Casa Zuniga. You won't be disappointed.

Pros: The personal and owners were excellent and the view out of this world.
Cons: The location is a very convenient place if you are willing and able to climb some steps.
Location: Location is great, very easy and convenient to get to the center of the city.
Rick and Carmen treated us like old friends, the staff was very nice, no complaints will recommend to friends, looking forward to next year for sure. A five star breakfast every morning.

very nice hotel near everythingPosted Sep 9, 2013
Pros: The thing I liked best was the great breakfast and that it was very quiet.
Cons: put a t.v. in the room
Location: The location is close to the center of town
I didn't have any problems with the hotel at all but my wife wished that there wad a t.v. in the room. The morning breakfast was always great. Then it is a short ride down the hill on the Funicular (ground cable car) to the center of town. The hotel furnished a punch card for free passage. There are a lot of good restaurants in the area. We really enjoyed our stay.

Simple, quiet, spectacular view, great location.Posted Aug 29, 2013
Great location, just a 3 minute walk to the pulsing with life center of Guanajuato. (Or, a quick ride on the funicular if you find very steep stairs and walkways to be an obstacle.) Spectacular view of the city and surrounding mountains (especially from the balcony of the Morgan room). Simple, modest, and clean room. Amazing home-made breakfast every day, with fruit, guacamole, tortillas, scrambled eggs, and usually a local special that I cannot name.

worth it for the views and companyPosted Aug 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
The two of us stayed for a conference appended with our own personal vacation. We stayed in the Ariadna Room, which is the only one without windows facing onto the valley. It did mean the bathroom took some time to ventilate after showers, but this was a minor, minor inconvenience. We didn't have a choice, really, as every other room was booked. We still could spend time in the spacious common areas of the hotel with views of the valley, including the pool, which we made use of many afternoons. The hotel is located on one of the many stairs along the hill, meaning you can't be dropped off in front and need to be at least a little mobile. Taxi drivers can drop you off at the Monumento Pipila and it's only a dozen steps down -- the hotel can arrange for people to carry your luggage down if you contact them in advance. The top of the funicular is right near the hotel, which saves you going up the mountain multiple times in the day. Our favorite aspect of the hotel was the family style breakfasts, since we got to know everyone else staying in the hotel and could even initiate impulsive day trips with them. The owners would talk to us often as well. I'd say the hotel is ideal for young to middle-aged couples or single travelers, just based on location and general feel of the hotel. Well-traveled families would probably do well here too, but if you're looking for a pampered resort, this isn't it. An exhilarating stay and I'd definitely stay again.
