This hotel in a 19th-century mansion is a great place to stop for a spell. The concept? Nine rooms individually themed around artists from Mexico’s La Ruptura movement (an abstract reaction to the 20th-century muralists); hence the Tamayo room (with a curvaceous metallic bathtub), the Friedeberg room (a trippy patchwork of blinding surrealism) or the energetically blue Soriano room.
All mod cons (but no parking) are assured and the Chai cafe chain has an outlet with terrace on the 1st floor – handy for breakfast or a late-night beer and enchilada.
This ultra-modern hotel is in central Guadalajara, 5 minutes’ drive from the Regional Museum. The air-conditioned rooms at the Del Carmen Concept Hotel feature avant-garde design. Each one comes with an iPod docking station and a private bathroom with a hairdryer. Guests can find a wide range of restaurants offering local food and international cuisine within 500 metres. Massage services are also available. Paseo Zapopan Golf Course is 20 minutes’ drive from the Del Carmen. You can drive to Guadalajara Airport in 20 minutes, and the hotel offers a shuttle service here on request.
