Fodor's Review

Dating from 1610, Guadalajara's oldest hotel is a national monument. While the run-down entrance to the hotel may scare you away, stone columns and colonial arches girdle a lovely three-story atrium lobby and dining area, with a marble fountain. However, the interior charm ends outside the guest rooms, where threadbare linens, tiny dingy bathrooms, and thin walls are serious drawbacks—music from the downstairs bar (there's a mariachi band in the lobby bar from 7 to 10

every Friday) will keep you up all night if you're in the wrong room. Rooms facing Calle Maestranza have tiny 17th-century balconies, as well as street noise.
