      Hotel Frances is a must stay for Guadalajara

      This hotel is a great location for historic Guadalajara. You can walk to so many of the most popular sites, and you were literally right across the street from the Cathedral. The staff was quick to help and was always super polite and cheerful.

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      Every year we stay once or twice on this hotel, we even had the opportunity to meet the owner who’s a very humble and nice person. Hotel is situated at a walking distance from the heart of downtown. Totally recommended. It’s not a luxury hotel but it’s well clean and comfortable.
