The hotel has new ownership since my last stay in November 2018. Gave it 5 stars at the time. The previous owner took an interest in guests, was helpful with nightlife and restaurant recommendations, served a limited breakfast in the morning, and presented you with a gift upon arrival. All these extras are gone. But the owner or manager had time to engage in heated discussions with his staff, as if they had no guests in the house. The rooms are still excellent but you may not get your second towel, and the location is also still excellent, especially for those interested in the historic zone or gay nightlife - many bar options in the area, many things to see within walking distance in a relatively safe area of the city, day or night. But the hotel ambiance and service has changed for the worse. In fairness, what I experienced was during a transition period, and I certainly hope the new team manages to bring the hotel back up to prior standards. For that reason, I would not rule out another stay; but not after I check out other options in the neighborhood.

It seemed that I had been everywhere in Mxico xcpe for the "second" city, capital of Jalisco. A friend stayed at Alebrijes a few years ago--different owner, different ambiance. My room faced to patio and the iconic fountain-- separated by a a wall of 30 studio glass. Beautiful and very peaceful. César, Francisco, Israel,and Claudia became my family--the made the visit wonderful.

The hotel website and amenities have changed since we booked - and since our first trip here; parking and breakfast are no longer included nor available, and these changes aren't yet reflected in the TripAdvisor description. What hasn't changed is the excellent location. The hotel is a set of rooms opening onto a charming semi-enclosed courtyard. Well, it was charming on our last visit; during our most recent visit it seemed to be hosting a guest and employee smoking marathon that filled the guest rooms with a light fog of cigarette smoke, negating the promise of fresh air from open windows(there is no air conditioning) and one of the amenities is having non-smoking rooms. Also, the staff seems to invite friends over at night for drinks/dinner/snacks and the noise carries into the rooms. Other than this, we enjoyed our stay in Guadalajara and would recommend this neighborhood.

This attractive hotel is well kept and very clean. There was a continental breakfast included in the room rate which is served on the upper floor. There was a good comfortable bed and powerful shower with hot water! The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the Cathedral and Governor’s Palace. The surrounding neighbourhood is rather gritty with loads of graffiti, a mix of workshops and rundown residential properties which I found off putting. There has been some regeneration in the area. There was a square a block away with a couple of restaurants and bars but little else in the way of “cafe culture” close by. It was recommended to take an Uber if heading out after 10/11pm. In summary: nice hotel but not so good neighbourhood.

Our first visit to Guadalajara and we chose this hotel, actually more like a family style home, to stay at over the Easter weekend. It was very quiet as less than half occupied which made for some lovely alone time in our room after visits on foot to many of the sights. Regrettably it was a religious holiday and much was closed for the first 4 days we were there, another story for another time. The hotel staff were most helpful and if we ever return ti the city, this spot would certainly figure in our decision~
