Pamphlet and photos are beyond photo-shopped. It looked like a reasonable, easy place to stay for a quick overnighter. They spent all the money on the lobby and the pamphlets to draw you in and once you reach the rooms, you feel like you've walked into a horror movie scene. Everything is from the 1970's/80s, the 'clean' room was dirty:... More

Pros:The hotel is located just a couple of blocks from the Cathedral, Degollado Theater, the bus to Tlaquepaque, and other landmarks. Cons: At our arrival there were 4 reception staff, but only one was helping other customer. The other 3 didnt even care we were there. Two of those three were busy looking at an Avon or some sort of... More

Not even sure where to start. I'm still disgusted thinking about the room that myself and my family stayed in a few days ago at this hotel.

I traveled to Guadalajara with a couple of friends with the intentions of knowing the place and having a weekend escape! We did. The hotel is really good located, just a couple of blocks away from Historic Guadalajara Center and there are several comercial plazas and markets around so you can do any kind of shopping if needed. If I... More

This hotel is in the centre of downtown close to many tourist sites. The hotel is inexpensive and the staff were OK but not fantastic. Although we had made our reservation through a travel agent the hotel had no record of it, even after I produced a receipt of payment. It required a call to the travel agent who rectified... More

This hotel is inexpensive but is very much in need of cosmetic overhaul. For less than $50 I had everything that I needed to spend the night but everything was very warn and tired. May not be sutiable for romantic getaway but ok for men, travelers. and non fussy folks. Modern highrise, somewhat noisey, and very Mexican. On site travel... More

I stayed on the hostel only one night, but it was confortable and well placed direct in the downtown. Don't come here if you're looking for some traditional insight: this is a modern hostel in an awful building. But inside everything's ok. The staff could just be more friendly.
