    very handy to centre of town. Staff helpful

    Very noisy all night had to catch a plane. People were talking all night outside our room. Road traffic beeping cars as we were above the entrance of the hotel

    Location! Right next to plaza and to the back of catedral de Guadalajara. Low vehicular traffic street, walking distance to many cool sights. Cool building, but lots of dust accumulated in public spaces.

    Dusty rustic ceilings, dusty fans, no AC rooms get hot. Make sure to leave floor fan running to keep room “fresh” during the day. It gets hot if you don’t!

    This is not a luxury hotel, but, as the oldest hotel in Guadalajara, it oozes character. It is very clean and the staff is outstanding. The owner (of 38 years) is on the premises every day and it shows. Above all, this is the best located hotel in the city ...1 block from the magnificent Cathedral, the fabulous 19th Century opera house (Teatro Degollado), and the Palacio de Gobierno, with some of México’s greatest murals. I would stay at no other hotel in Guadalajara. I’ve been coming here since 1974!

    The excellent trio that plays in the lobby courtyard should turn the sound system down 25%.
