My friend and I stopped for two nights in Guadalajara, on our way from Mexico City to Puerto Vallarta and stayed at the Portonovo. The hotel is well located close to the main touristic attractions in Guadalajara. Our twin room was clean and welcoming, great for a stopover. Walls were however thin and you could hear any movement from the... More

This hotel is simple, yet clean and well-maintained. The staff members are helpful and attentive. Breakfast is well-stocked and served from 7:00 AM, until almost noon. The hotel is located within walking distance of the historic district, the mariachi district and the mercado de San Juan de Dios. In addition, the hotel provides free coffee, free bottled water, free WIFI,... More

Located on the fringe of downtown Guadalajara, we were close enough to walk everywhere which was convenient. The hotel was nice, the room was a decent size and clean, but the room had a stale smell of smoke. The breakfast buffet was good and overall the hotel is good value for money. I would stay here again, but would specifically... More

Thank you very much for your kind review. We will definitively pay close attention to guests smoking in the rooms, it is forbidden and we will take better measures to enforce such rule. Thank you for pointing it out. Please feel free to come back anytime! More

At 400 pesos a night this is an excellent deal. We stayed a Sunday night and came back the following Thursday night. The rooms are extremely clean and modern looking and very pleasant. The staff is helpful and nice. The hotel is located about five blocks from the plaza de Mariachis which is disappointingly small and dirty. The street going... More

I pricelined this hotel in the GDL in March 2013 and wished I could have been elsewhere. The best thing about it was the price (Priceline offered it as an express deal - 3.5 stars for $33 plus tax). That was crazy low so I tried it. After all 3.5 stars is supposed to be very nice. The room was... More

This property was totally renewed and fully refurnished in 2011, including the tile in the rooms. Our beds are orthopedic but we are sorry to hear you found them hard to sleep on. We agree with you, the City of Guadalajara hasn't done its part in keeping this side of downtown as they should, but we can assure you there... More
