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).

You won't find better price and quality in downtown

The hotel is a beautiful and well preserved colonial building right in the heart of Guadalajara's downtown. If you're looking for a nice, clean and comfortable place to stay without paying the overprice of 5-star hotels, this is your option! TIP: rooms with balconies facing the street are noisy. Better to sacrifice the view and have an inside room without noise.

A couple days in the city

My husband and I reserved a room after a friend had recommended the hotel to us. I was very happy with our experience. The hotel is walking distance from several tourist sites, including the cathedral. The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful. I only wish we would have stayed longer to take advantage of the heated pool on the roof. I would stay here again.

Fantastic downtown historic experience

Staff are very friendly, food from lounge is good but expensive and coffee not tasty. Lots of choices for food walking distance though. I really liked the architecture of the building, colonial style. Temp was about 42 degree F so unable to use outdoor pool. I enjoyed a horse carriage tour of downtown in the evening :-)

Colonial Downtown Experience

We have stayed at the Morales numerous times and continue to find it an excellent value. It is an attractively and respectfully renovated colonial-style property well located in centro. An easy walk to the cathedral, main squares, Degollado theater and Cabanas museum. Valet parking is included and there is a rooftop pool.

Spotless hotel

This hotel is very clean and spotless throughout. I've stayed at many places in Guadalajara and this has the best. The wifi works perfect throughout the hotel.

The cafe in the holiday inn about 4 blocks away is a must. Good baguettes and coffee. I always go there a couple times when I'm in town.
