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).

Nice

My family and I stayed at this hotel for 3-nights, we didn't do a lot of sight see because we were with family members, that live in mexico, most of the time. The rooms were very clean and modern, the hotel itself is old but was renovated about 3 years ago. Beautiful inside don't get disapointed when you see it from the outside driving to the hotel. Great location, walking distance to sightseeing. Great tacos across the street! Well worth the price.

Great Hotel in Great Location

Great colonial hotel in great location. Noise echoes thru the hotel, but A/C in each room drowns out the noise. Staff superb and helpful. Good dining, but food locations in central GDL are lacking. Must travel to get a decent meal! Hotel will begin an expantion starting in November 2009 as they have acquired the colonial hotel next door. Will have 100 rooms, pool, meeting rooms.

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.

Great place to stay!

Very nice rooms for the price! The hacienda-style atmosphere with its great colors and columns was more than expected. I'd definitely return for another stay!

Great Experience

This hotel is marvellous, the arcitecture and location makes it stand out. The service was great, the only negative thing was that I had to wait three hours for my room. Check in time starts at twelve and I didnt get to my room until three. Its bar and resterant is delightful and serves gourmet quality food. The service at both is more than good. I would most decently come back and stay at hotel Morales.
