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 will admit that we were desperate for a hotel room as we were doing a road trip and hadn't booked a room for a night in Guadalajara (we were supposed to be... More

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

They have removed some of the old stained carpet and replaced it with nice marble, still an older hotel but our group of 8 enjoyed it. As team leader i had room 132 a corner suite for 49 dollars and we centered our activities there. Very large room could hold 16 people. Clean Beds are not great. TVs are of... 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.

Long story short: left my laptop inside briefcase at front desk, empty briefcase given back to me. Staff was rude and unhelpful. Be safe and wise, stay away from this rathole!!!

We stayed at this hotel for a few days during Thanksgiving week. Some rooms were small and a little worn. We looked at a few. The best were the balcony rooms. ..especially room 132. They are a bit more spacious and seem to be partially renovated..althought there were some strange things done with the carpet corners and a strange mildew... More
