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).

Would stay again

GREAT locacation. Staff were very friendly and helpful. While I speak Spanish, there was always an English speaking staff member available. Easy walk or inexpensive cab ride to where ever I needed to go. Room was modern, clean, comfortable, quiet. GREAT value for the price. Would stay again, and highly recommend this hotel.

Great location, lovely hotel!

Great hotel and they are adding 30 more rooms in the building next door. The staff was very helpful. A lively trio played in the lobby on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. I read previous reviews before making the reservations and the information was very useful. La Chata, and La Gorda were great places to enjoy well made typical food. The bubbling beef molcajete at the Maestranza (the famous bullfighting bar)was yummy and they had an enjoyable non traditional flamenco group performing. Bariachi with folkloric and mariachi performances was worth it. The filet in mole negro was fabulous. We went to two performances at the Teatro Degollado, a gem of a theater with excellent acoustics. Ask for a seat from which the stage view is not obstructed by the balcony pillars. The three of us agreed that the whole experience is worth a return visit!

Even Better.

They have added a swimming pool and gym... so after all the good eating in Guadalajara you can work off a little of it... This is my second stay at this hotel and the customer service is excellent. I believe they work hard to make sure you have what you need. I will stay there again it is a perfect location to El Centro and to all the sightseeing spots.

Great centrally located hotel with atmosphere

I found this hotel through an on-line service and booked it. It couldn't have been better! The hotel is in a converted colonial style house, with interior courtyards. Decorating is very tasteful and comfortable. The room was well lit. The breakfast buffet is a reasonable value, and the hotel is only 3 blocks from the cathedral. They have a small fitness center on the roof deck.

SWEET HOTEL!! Good location and cost

The hotel location was GREAT! It was basically mid-point between many sites and attractions. The hotel staff was so very professional as well as pleasant. The rooms were very well furnished and large. I loved every thing about this hotel and would most definitely stay there again

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

DO NOT take the site seeing "BUS" tour that's offered to Tequilla or to Chapala. The so called bus was actually an oversized mini-van that was cramped and filled to capacity. We were expecting a full sized chartered BUS, but instead got an rough riding,cramped, mini-van like thing with tinted windows and not enough leg room for an average height american. Save the $30.00(cost of tour) and take a taxi to Lake Chapala, you'll be much happier,comfortable,and basically end up paying the same price
