Welcome to Casa Pipila; a beautiful Mexican style colonial building overlooking the picturesque city of Guanajuato.

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).

About Dermot

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.

Dermot purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Dermot chose Zona Centro

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

It is about the view

  • 5 of 5

Having been to Guanajuato 4 previous times, I knew what I wanted and how many steps it would take. Dermot’s place has a great view. The two French doors in the living room and dinning area were perfect. We kept the doors open and I moved my chair right to the edge to enjoy the view as I did my work via computer. But, there was also a great view from the kitchen sink. We like to go to market and cook. What a pleasure to live in this environment. The bedrooms were fine. They were without a view but they were quieter . Guanajuato can be loud at night. A very safe and good neighborhood. But do pay attention to Dermot's warning about the steps. There are 100 steps plus ramps down to the apartment from the street above. There are more than 100 to the city below. No railings. The steps are not even and can be steep. So this place is not for everyone. But if you do adventure here, you will be rewarded. Dermot was a great host.

Great view!!

  • 5 of 5

The total experience was great the entire way through. It was our first time in Guanajuato. We were very closed to all areas from a walking distance. The apartment exceeded our expectations and we will definitely stay here again. Thanks Dermot

Great property for the price!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and enjoyed Guanajuato a lot. The property had everything we needed and Tammy was available to help us if we needed anything! The view is gorgeous but we took Dermot's advice and walked down the hill but took a taxi home to the top, for 50 Pesos it saved us calling an ambulance :) .

Cheers

Dave & Shirley

Top of the world!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent seven glorious days at the top of the world in Casa Pipila. The views are breathtaking, which is why we chose this stunning site, and we spent many hours taking in the sights and sounds from above. Bring binoculars! Also note that sound rises—rooftop dogs, roosters, firecrackers and nightly celebrations of the delightful mideaval-dressed singing callejoneadas leading tourists and locals through the Zocalo. This is part of Mexico’s enchantment—its exuberant Life!

Casa Pipila is a charming, self-contained abode and within “hiking” distance to everything. The endless steps of Guanajuato are challenging but the best exercise imaginable, offering great surprises around each corner. We only took the funicular up once choosing to use the steps up and down each day as we explored the city, galleries and museums.

Guanajuato is truly a colorful, magical city and Casa Pipila a great lookout point in which to stay. Dermot is most accommodating and English-speaking Israel was the perfect person with his associate for transfers and help with our luggage. He also offers tours.

So, thank you, Dermot for making Casa Pipila homey and available! Hope to see you on our next visit to GTO!

Owner's Response: Linda Joy and Alex, thank you so much for your kind words.It was a pleasure having you here. Yes the steps are a challenge anywhere you stay in this mountain town,but guests never have to walk uphill as the funicular can take you uphill (7 mins walk away) or a taxi can drop you off on the panoramica( 2 mins walk downhill to my house) It was great to see you using the outdoor patios, sharing a bottle of wine with other guests. Im so glad you enjoyed our newly renovated apts, and i look forward to seeing you again soon all the best Dermot

Location

Nearest Airport
30 Kilometres
Guanajuato International Airport
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. Checkin is from 3pm to 10pm

We dont accepts pets or children under 7,sorry
