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).

Best location, more than what you pay for!

Super classy with historic charm, staff was attentive and efficient. When we checked in our room our bathroom door was broken without hesitation they upgraded our room at no charge and moved all of our stuff for us. Extremely clean. The restaurant is good and not overpriced how you would expect from a hotel.

great hotel in great location

Spent four nights here in March 2014.. Hotel is very attractive, built around interior courtyard with four floors. Restaurant with live piano music during the breakfast hours. Nice pool on the fourth floor with some sitting areas and a small gym. Roof terrace on the fifth floor with some okay views of Guadalajara and some good sitting areas. Room was average, nicely furnished with a good shower area. Would suggest that you get an outside room is you want to see outside.... there was some street noise with the doors open, but it was fairly quiet with the doors closed. The inside rooms only have a window on the corridors in the hotel, you would have to leave the drapes closed so that no one could look into the room. Location is excellant. Only 5 blocks south of the Cathedral and plazas.... near the market.... the plaza at San Francisco is across the street with lots of venders and some good food. Several gay bars just down the street for some late night action. A little distant to California bar, but I made the walk several times without a problem even late at night... about 15 blocks. Felt very safe and comfortable in all of the centro area.

3rd stay

This hotel has the best location... many good places close by for eating... within walking distances for most sites to see in El Centro. We were there over Mexican Independence Day... it was a great time to go.

GDL Fun

Convenient location to historic area and attractions. Clean, very well maintained hotel. Large comfortable room with in room jaccuzi. Doubled paned windows keep outside hustle and bustle out. Efficient and friendly staff. Have stayed here several times, always a good experience and value. New pool and gym are a great addition.

Beautiful Hotel but terible acoustics

Hotel is in a great location. Its beautiful and very confortable. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The only downside we found was that even tho we were in the 3rd floor we could hear people talking and laughing in the lobby, the elevator humming as it went up & down,closing / opening of doors ect .... very glad that it all stopped at night
