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).

My Go To

It is such a beautiful and convenient hotel centrally located in Downtown Guadalajara. It's also an easy drive to the Airport. The rooms are large and clean and the staff is always accommodating, I stay here almost once a year when I visit GDL. The best part is that it is a great value!

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 :-)

Must stay here

This hotel did an amazing job at making my vacation the best possible experience ever. The staff was so nice and the bed was extremely comfortable. I plan to stay with them every time from now on when I come visit Guadalajara. Make sure to go eat breakfast at LA GORDA it is very yummy.

beautifully restored hotel

Avoid the interior rooms. They are dark and smell musty. The exterior rooms, with small balconies, are a much better choice.

Very nice hotel

This hotel is very close to the zocalo (city square). The staff was very helpful with directions to a travel agent. Enjoyed walking at night in the square and seeing all the people. Taxi service right at the door was convenient and good.
