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 from the hotel to the Plaza de Mariachis is not the cleanest but during the day it is safe. El Centro located also a few blocks from the hotel is cleaner and pleasant. We were very pleased with this hotel and will go back to explore the “Pueblos Magicos” around Guadalajara. To get to the hotel from the Terminal de Autobuses: if you do not have much luggage, there is the local bus for 6 pesos but it takes about 50 minutes and will drop you about five long blocks from the hotel, but the bus is often crowded. From the airport, we took a shuttle or minivan, which cost 80 pesos per person and takes about twenty minutes and will drop you where the cheaper bus dropped you, five long blocks from the hotel. It is quite a walk especially with luggage. To get back to the airport, the first time, we asked the hotel for a taxi at 7.00 am and it cost 220 pesos. The second time, it was early afternoon and we took a taxi from the street and it cost 110 pesos. It took about 30 minutes without traffic.
