We stayed at LA FE Hotel for two nights and really enjoyed it! The hotel is centrally located, very close to Chapultepec and all of the best restaurants and bars. The staff were very friendly and welcoming when we arrived and made the check-in easy. The rooms are large and well-decorated with fresh white bed linen and fluffy pillows. There’s also fast wifi and a reasonably sized kitchen. The hotel provides a simple but nice breakfast of coffee, fruit, toast and cereal. What's really special about this hotel though is the art! There are interesting art pieces throughout the boutique hotel. We'd definitely recommend spending a few nights here if you're staying in Guadalajara.

Amazing haircut! My boyfriend and I both had a haircut here and we were both really happy with the results. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We only speak a little bit of Spanish and they mimed for us to help us understand what they were asking! Both cuts were beautiful and we're really pleased. Prices were very good value - 180 pesos for a women's haircut and 130 pesos for a men's haircut. Thanks so much! :)

Awful customer service. Laptop wouldn't power on after 6 weeks of buying but Currys couldn't help. They sent the PC back to manufacturer and after 3 weeks no word. Rang up customer service to find out how the repair was going and they didn't have the laptop on their system so couldn't give an update on anything. Shocking.

I would 100% recommend Taylor fencing. They erected a new fence down the side of our property, an end terrace, which has stood up to all weathers and is both strong and looks great. Lovely job. I can't thank them enough for helping to install my disabled brother's swing too.

Had a great time on the Angloville programme here. Great area, nice walks and a castle. Unfortunately the hotel's food isn't so good due to lack of variety and lack of fresh fruit and veg. However, the staff are really lovely.

Delicious xiao long bao. We ate vegetarian steamed buns and red bean buns. All were amazing, fresh, delicate and light! Service was good too, and free hot green tea constantly refilled.
