Dominated by a grand dual-spired cathedral, the historic center (Centro Histórico) of Guadalajara is the oldest part of Mexico’s second city. Of course, its size means the hotels on offer here are often fantastically cultural, meaning you can indulge in the rich tradition of the area even when you’re chilling at your basecamp. Want to know more? Here are the best cultural hotels in Centro Histórico, and they’re all bookable on Culture Trip.
This boutique bed & breakfast is situated a few blocks outside the historic center but is a fantastic option that we just had to include. Still easily within walking distance of all the major sights and sounds of the historic center, but with the bonus of being closer to Avenida Chapultepec too, La Perla is an upscale hotel. What’s more, it has a unique theme that sets it apart from the competition; rooms are categorized as radio, TV, or film, and the aim is to make you feel like a movie star from the golden age of Mexican cinema. You are truly transported back to the past in the Moorish mansion aesthetic of La Perla.
