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).

Prime location

The Hotel Morales was very comfortable and clean. The rooms were well appointed. The staff was friendly and courteous. This historic building is beautiful and located just minutes (walking) from other historical buildings, i.e., museums, cathedrals, government buildings. There are very good restaurants and shopping nearby.

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

great locatiion and rich history

The Hotel Morales turned out to be better than I expected for the price. The room was comfortable and was clean. The room had all the amenities such as hanging space, dryer, iron and other. the location was great since it was walking distance to downtown. The only thing i found wrong was that It was noisy even after midnight, it seemed like many of the guests were still up and making noises. Overall I would recommend it.

Arizona Girls Weekend

We visited from a Wednesday to Saturday and every second in the hotel was amazing. The hotel is beyond quaint and the staff is very friendly. The food is delicious though we only ate breakfast there. We were walking distance from the main center in town and its historic landmarks like El Teatro Degollado.

Business trip with a cultural ingredient

Great location, great service, frendly employees, and the price combined with the airfare is great. Downtown Guadalajara is beautifull and like in every city you have to be carfull if you go out at nights. The Hotel by itself is very nice with a colonial theam. They have Mexican music, good food, and tequila, what else do you expect?
