The hotel is in the heart of town within easy walking distance of shopping and dining. But, it can be a bit difficult to find by car. Parking may also seem like a bit of a challenge; but, there is a public parking garage on the other side of the church. We did not notice it until the next morning.... More

Located just off the main square of Papantla de Olarte is the Hotel Tajin. To say that it is the top hotel in Papantla is probably because of the dire lack of competition. Sure, there is a nice pool at the back, and it is centrally-located, however, the amenities are very basic. The front desk questioned me when I made... More

This is a very good place. The personal are helpful and friendly. The hotel is very clean and cozy. Right in the center of Papantla city. The parking is not right at the hotel, but very close and guarded 24 hours a day. Nice swimming pool as well! So, very recommended.

Hotel Tajin was a very nice place to stay in Papantla, Veracruz, in Mexico. The restaurant was nice. No one who worked for the hotel spoke English, which made it a little hard on us. The only bad point was that we only received coffee grounds to make coffee on the first night.

I paid about $30/night. Credit cards accepted. Not a four-star resort by any means, but you'll be OK here. Two restaurants onsite: I tried the front one and it was surprisingly good. Wifi. Hot water showers. Little worn down but clean. Good location close to the cathedral, the voladores, the mirador, and the Plaza Mayor. Ten minutes in a cab... More

As long as your expectations are not too high, you will be happy here. The location is great and the hotel has a large rooftop sign, making it easy to spot when you arrive in town. We walked here from the ADO bus station in 10 minutes. (If your luggage is heavy, take a taxi.) It is uphill, towards the... More

Some reviewers rated this hotel much better than I, thus presume that rooms vary in quality and comfort. Mine, the bathroom especially, had a very strong odor of mildew. Opening the very large louvered shower window brought in fresh air but it could only be opened fully, thus exposing you to everyone in the adjacent building and since Papantla can... More

Papantla is yet to see a tourist boom and the accommodation choices tend mostly to the lower end of the market. Hotel Tajin makes an effort to rise above that with, let’s say, modest success. Tune your expectations to the surroundings and you will avoid disappointment. The good: conveniently located right by the Zocolo, clean, well maintained and moderately comfortable... More

The Hotel Tajín is in the very center of Papantla, just off the zócalo (main square). Everything you could want or need is a stone's throw away: a late night supermarket, bus stations and collective taxis, and restaurants. The hotel itself has a good restaurant, open 7am-11pm, which offers a hearty breakfast buffet til 11:30 for 90 pesos. Highly recommended... More

The hotel is very conveniently located near the cathedral and the zocalo. Rooms are clean, the internet works, the AC a little noisy. There are many steps outside the front entrance, it is probably better to arrive from the back to avoid the climb (ask you taxi driver, if possible, if they know the back entrance - that will be...
