I was pleasantly surprised at this posada. All other hotels were booked so i ended up here. It was exactly what I wanted. Close to the centre, all amenities at hand, very reasonably priced, quiet, clean and for sure ill be back soon

The night before I had stayed at a hostel on Rayon with nothing provided (no towel, no soap, no security, no room key, and one shower shared with 8 other people on a different floor.) Compared to that, this was heaven. PSR is a historic house remodeled into an inn - not exactly a hotel and not exactly a hostel....

My friend and I had a great experience at the Posada San Rafael. It was built in 1900 and is a former Jesuit monastery, so it has tons of charm and old-world touches. It is not, however, a modern hotel, so those who are looking for luxury will not be happy here. The rooms were clean and contained plenty of...

We stayed at the San Rafael because I had stayed there before and liked it. Unfortunately, it has evolved for the worse. Our room was a bit rundown and when you took a shower, the walls got smelly (whether it smelled of fish or urine, we could not find it out) If you like the music from the cafe on...

I knew it was a bad sign when we checked in and I saw that the hotel manager was mending the edges of a tiny, frayed towel on a sewing machine behind the desk. This place was recommended by the Rough Guide, and while it does not disappoint in terms of price, it was one of the worst hotels I've...

I stayed at this place about January 2003, on the plus side it has bathroom and is a family owned and run hotel. Also it's close to everything, including walking distance to the classy west side and I found it conveniently close to money exchange houses, which give better pesos for dollars than banks. $18 dollars per night is not...

The Posada San Rafael is a very simple "hotel", conveniently located in the Historic District. I checked out early because there were no smoke detectors or emergency exits (bars on the windows, and the front door can only be opened by the attendant). However, smoke detectors don't seem to be very important in Guadalajara hotels.On the plus side, the staff...
