This hotel is in the heart of Historic downtown Guadalajara, It is very family friendly and often books youth sports teams that are in town for playoffs. They offer a buffet three times a day, and I was impressed at the food choices offered and the table service when you did not want the buffet. The rooms are modern and... More

Staff went out of their way to help with hotel Wifi (very slow) and supply walking map of Guadalajara Historic Center. Public spaces very nice, room quality and amenities vary depending on where they are in the ongoing renovation process. Several school groups were staying at this hotel, so elevator and dining room access was a bit constrained at times.... More

The hotel lobby makes it look decent but once the elevator doors opens the smell of a 40 year old carpet comes to you. Even more so in the room. Very old furniture horrible lighting and ugly bathrooms. Everything is clean though but won't come back here.

This hotel caters to Mexicans. They are very unfriendly towards Americans. The rooms and maids are nice. Everyone in reception was very unfriendly. I was the only foreigner staying in this huge hotel.

An average hotel at a quite central location in Guadalajara. Even though most people rate it as dirty and horrible, there is nothing to worry about: an average, clean place to stay with free wifi in the lobby.
