In the middle of a 3-week vacation, I decided I wanted to go to Guadalajara. With less than 48 hours warning, I emailed the hotel to ask about availability. Luckily for me, there was a vacancy. I was pleasantly surprised. Behind the terra cotta colored, exterior door exists a well-decorated, safe, clean, and friendly hotel. John, the owner/manager spent a lot of time to map out all possible needs in El Centro, from food, dancing, bars, points of interest, gyms, and nearby locations outside of El Centro. The area is very alive with all types of bars and restaurants and the hotel's proximity allowed me to enjoy so much of it. For nine days, I felt like I lived in Guadalajara. By the way, for those that are not familiar with Mexico, Guadalajara is NOT Tijuana. Come to Guadalajara, stay in this hotel and see as much of the city as you are able - you won't regret it!
Breakfast is served everyday, unending purified water, computer access, the staff is friendly, the sound of the fountain is soothing, and don't forget to check out the alebrijes!
I wouldn't hesitate to return to this hotel.
Thank you, John, David, and Henry!
