Charming w/ great location, but with problems
Great location 1 block to the square with amazing architecture and happenings. Avery old hotel in decent condition for its age. Room was very hot with very little ventilation. Bed was short sheeted: twin bed sheet laying across a double bed so both top and bottom sheets did not cover the bed or come up to the pillows. Also we booked there because they advertise an airport shuttle; all they do is call a cab that you pay for. That is not an airport shuttle.

Have stayed before & will continue to visit. Perfect location in central Guadalajara. Short walking distance to various museums & Mercado San Juan de Dios. Staff is very always very help. Hotel is old fashioned, but is home to a lot of history.

Mixed
The hotel is in a great central location. The staff is friendly. Unfortunately, there's no air conditioning and the fan is set at one speed. The mattress seemed as it was the original from when the hotel opened in 1610. It was hard as a rock, it has bumps and indentations. Could not sleep :(

Poor1.0 / 5
Good for proximity but bad for everything else.
The room was too close to a club. Music too loud, couldn't sleep for the night. I told the guy at the front desk I wanted the room far away from the club, the guy assured me it was but he lied. It seems they don't care about what you need.

Guadalajara's best kept secret -GREAT HOTEL !
Excellent and would stay here again. Close to everything.This turn of the century historic hotel has HUGE ROOMS of unbelievable massive size .It was like going back in a time machine to the elegance of the late 1800's. The rooms all have wrought iron balconies over looking the main streets below. I paid a extremely low price for my double room suite with Jacuzzi and roof top deck view. Truly amazing hotel.
