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, 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!

Great value, great location

Hotel is located at a great location in the historic center. Everything we were looking for (restaurants, market, museums, etc.) was at walking distance. Room was very clean and staff was beyond friendly. The price we paid was very low for the value we received.

Hotel Merales excellant

This was my first trip to Guadalajara. The Hotel was close to everything. I don't know why it's rated 3 star. We were pleasantly surprised to find out what a beautiful hotel it was. Everything was great. The breakfast buffet for 99 pesos was also good. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Guadalajara. Perfect location, close to restaurants, shops, and the beautiful downtown.

We liked the la Gorda restaurant better than the la Chata (accross the street) that everyone raved about. (I apologize form my spelling).

hotel morales gudalajara mexico

I enjoyed the location. the set up of the room was really nice. i stayed n room 212. it had a king bed and tv with closet in safe 2 nightstands beuautiful furniture. and a tv in room with bed. then u walk toward the back behind the bed area was a table with two chairs and another tv and bathroom n shower n sink. i like the idea of the shower being seperate from the toilet and the sink was seperate from the toilet n shower area. but the two tvs were awesome becuz if two guests were in the room u can watch different stuff. or if one guest wanted to sleep the other could go in the back an watch tv. awesome. and i luv the fact they spoke english very well.it had two little balconys one by the bed area and one in the back by the table. they were small balconys. u can only stand there , it would of been nice to pull a chair out n sit. there was a roof top viewing area which was beautiful for pictures and sitting.

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.

Hotel Marales Guadlajara Rocks!

The best location available in Historic Guadlajara! The hotel was very clean, rooms spacious and the employees were warm and more than helpful! The breakfasts were very good and priced right. You won't find a nicer hotel for the price! Location, location, location!
