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).

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.

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

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.

Must visit Tlaquepaque. Only five miles from Guadalajra Central, and a wonderful small city to stroll, shop, and dine. Terrific place to unwind.

Beautiful Hotel Morales

We stayed 4 nights at this great hotel. A truly beautifully restored & furbished historical building. The Hotel Morales is close to all the squares and tourist attractions in Guadalajara's historical centre and easy access to transportation to Tonala & Tlaquepaque. My daughter enjoyed the use of the gym.
