Colonial and Historic Building, which was built in the 19th century. It is located three blocks away from the Metropolitan Cathedral. Under the management of Mr. Luis Morales Serrano became during several decades as the bullfighters' hotel, which for many people it still is.

This building is identified with a whole period of Guadalajara's history.

The Hotel offers the most modern and updated equipments and facilities combined with a classical colonial ambient and "climate". Everything focused for the comfort and enjoyment of all our distinguished guests, assuring and warranting that it will be a trip and a meeting back with the past of this great place.

It Might be mentioned as a curious aside that there are rumors and legends about tunnels that connect Hotel Morales to the Metropolitan Cathedral (about 1/2 mi. away). The date and reasons by which these underground passages were forgotten and cancelled remain unknown. Likewise, the use they were given is a mystery but their existence does give an enigmatic touch to Hotel Morales.

The Hotel Morales is classified as Artistic Heritage and Architectonical Jewel of the city of Guadalajara. It is also under protection of the INAH (National Anthropology and History Board of Mexico).

Beautiful hotel with amazing staff!

We were blown away by the beauty of the hotel & the amazing staff. Our room was clean and had everything we needed. We didn't get to try the pool but it was lovely. When our ride couldn't arrive until 4 hours after checkout, the reception staff offered to keep our suitcases in a safe room for free! Will definitely come back & stay here!!

Love this hotel

What an incredible hotel for the price! Second stay and it was just as nice as the first. Clean, comfortable, well appointed, friendly staff, and central location. I will be staying again my next trip to GDL.

Excellent ambiance, location, price, vibe

For my first time to Guadalajara for tourism, this place was perfect. It has the wow factor when you walk in, it's clean, the rooms are nice, and they even have a heated pool on the roof. You can walk everywhere, and there is a taqueria across the street. We took a corner room, #218, that had three balconies. Noise was no issue in this room as the balcony doors were all double glass. It's a great hotel, the staff are nice and for anyone staying for pleasure, I highly recommend it.

Great Hotel in Great Location

Great colonial hotel in great location. Noise echoes thru the hotel, but A/C in each room drowns out the noise. Staff superb and helpful. Good dining, but food locations in central GDL are lacking. Must travel to get a decent meal! Hotel will begin an expantion starting in November 2009 as they have acquired the colonial hotel next door. Will have 100 rooms, pool, meeting rooms.

Nice

My family and I stayed at this hotel for 3-nights, we didn't do a lot of sight see because we were with family members, that live in mexico, most of the time. The rooms were very clean and modern, the hotel itself is old but was renovated about 3 years ago. Beautiful inside don't get disapointed when you see it from the outside driving to the hotel. Great location, walking distance to sightseeing. Great tacos across the street! Well worth the price.

Amazing Accommodations

Hotel Moralis what centrally located and in the middle of everything. Beautiful architecture is the most stricky aspect of this place. I kept pinching myself to make sure I wasn't dream.. The room are very spacious and clean. Super FAST service for everything. The best stay I have had for the money. You can't beat it.
