All major attractions are walking distance from this Best Western Plus hotel. Supermarket, Mercado, and churches are 2 to 7 minutes from BW. They have 9 floors and the best view to see the Dome, Basilica, Churches, and Buildings are from the fifth floor. We stayed at room 519 with the best views from the front and side (more like an angle). The hotel staff speak English well feel like home. The biggest Mercado San Juan (food, restaurants, fruits, and shopping) is two blocks away. For 3 consecutive days we covered 17 major attractions (museums, churches, government buildings, plazas, etc.). Try to avoid Sunday as many attractions closed on this day but some still open from 10 AM to 3 PM. The only negative thing about this hotel is the noise from the traffic but if you turn on the AC or Heater should be less noise for sleeping. However, the traffic will die down around 11 PM or Midnight. We stayed here from December 26 through 31, 2018.Positive thing: if you want to take a one day trip to Lake Chapala, there is a bus station nearby. We walked very slow and took us only 17 minutes. It is the express bus (called DIRECTO in Spanish) only 1 hour and the cost is $3 US (58 pesos) one way. You can use your cell phone to navigate of the walking and the name of the bus station is "Antigua Central Camionera de Guadalajara". Contact us if you get lost firstname.lastname@example.org. When the bus arrives in Lake Chapala, you walk about 7 blocks to reach the lake. Very nice view everywhere from the lake, lots of restaurants, and open markets. There is a nice old church next to the Lake. We stayed here less than 4 hours because nothing else to do. We covered all the attractions at the Lake within 3 hours. The bus runs from 6:30 AM to 10 PM (with every half hour departure like 6:30 AM, 7 AM or 3:30 PM, 4 PM, etc.).We highly recommend you to stay at this hotel because it is next to all major attractions less than 10 minutes walking distance. Staying at other hotels in different zone will cost you money for taking taxi daily roundtrip to/from downtown/central Guadalajara. less
