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).

Great location; everything you could need.

The location of the Hotel Morales and it's amenities including internet was terrific. We were able to make all our necessary connections and appointments during our 2 day stay. Our last day there we stayed at another hotel and we were not as comfortable. We will be back.

Cool Historic Hotel

Picked this hotel off previous reviews. Most reviews nailed it. This is a really picturesque hotel, very elegant and centrally located. The staff was friendly and helpful, although my needs are really simple. Got some good tips on dining, but they really aren't up to speed on nicer places nearby. If you like quaint hotels this is a good bet.

There's some great night spots with upstairs open air balcony just west of the plaza. It's a moderate walk but beats the boring restaurants near the hotel.

Business trip with a cultural ingredient

Great location, great service, frendly employees, and the price combined with the airfare is great. Downtown Guadalajara is beautifull and like in every city you have to be carfull if you go out at nights. The Hotel by itself is very nice with a colonial theam. They have Mexican music, good food, and tequila, what else do you expect?

Great Location

The Hotel Morales was more than we bargained for. Awesome staff, great location, close to everything-shops, museums, etc. Their breakfast buffet is the best! The rooms were nice, very clean, huge showers. Very pretty hotel overall. We liked it so much, we went back to that hotel at the end of our trip. Definitely would recommend to anyone.

Shopping tip: Not Applicable

1. Take a 5 minute cab drive to Obregon (women's assessory heaven). 2. Take a carriage ride (across the street), for $20 you can take an hour-long tour through historic Guadalajara.

Great option in Guadalajara

Outstanding customer service. They are ready to help and they address problems immediately. Also this is a great option for non-Spanish speakers or people whose Spanish is limited because there are many English speakers on the staff. It's a historic building with a beautiful classic lobby. I stayed in two different rooms. One was a little cramped, the other was fine. Lots of closet space. Walk in shower. The hotel has its own restaurant which is open long hours. The location is a mixed bag. You're right downtown and close to everything including lots of solid eating choices (two blocks east on Corona and on the north side of the the street there is a really good choice - sorry don't have name handy It's the one with the big open kitchen up front and tons of people cooking). The downside to the location is it's on the noisy side. Traffic, mechanical noises, some music clubs in the neighborhood. It's not terrible, but it's not bucolic. My baseline is NYC. If you're used to much quieter places it might be a bit much. That said, the quality of the customer service is excellent and that's something that is very much hit or miss in Mexican hotels (and hotels anywhere for that matter) This one is a solid hit. Try to get a room as high up as possible (the hotel has three floors). There are interior rooms that don't face the street but the only natural light source is from the courtyard.
