The staff at Hotel Tajin were very nice and helpful but they didn't speak English so you had to know some Spanish. They were helpful fixing our air conditioner. The pool was refreshing and the restaurant was good. We did not think the rooms were over-priced it was around $40 a night. The shower did not have much water pressure... More

I read the other reviews of this hotel before I booked a room there and was confused. I was more confused after I spent a week there while exploring the nearby ruins of Tajin an the vanilla plantations. The room was clean, and comfortable and reasonable at $40/night duriing the Christmas holidays. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel... More

The hotel did a great job on their website but it gives an impression of an decent-quality hotel. This is not the case. The hotel is outdated in every way. The window air conditioner barely works and smells of mildew. The bathroom has a large window for ventilation since the air conditioner is a window unit and doesn`t cool it... More

It is pricey compare to it's quality. Night is not working. The shower is bad. Air conditioner is noisy. The water in the pool was murky. We stayed for 2 nights. When we came back on the second day after a day out, we found that the room had not been cleaned. To be fair, other hotels in the town... More

Don't know why Papantla doesn't have more tourists. The zocalo is thriving, the markets are good, the people very friendly, the area beautiful, the voladores are amazing and El Tajin is a wonderful place to visit. The Hotel Tajin is a fine hotel, nothing too fancy, but clean, comfortable and very close to the zocalo. The front of the hotel,... More

Decent hotel but I think it's worth half the money they charge. The old, wet carpet around the pool is quite scary indeed. We moved to the Provincia Express Hotel next day.

My wife and I spent two nights in Hotel Tajin and will be returning. It is a perfect location, and a great price ($35 US per night). The room was spacious and clean, although not luxurious, and all the amenities were very adequate. Every room has AC, cable TV, and wifi. However, the most important amenity in Mexico for us... More

The best thing this hotel has is its location: right next to the zocalo. The rooms are large and the view is great. Bathrooms are very basic and the overall style is totally outdated. The restaurant in front has expensive prices for the offering but the one by the pool, in the back, had a better price/quality ratio. Otherwise plenty... More

The best thing I can say about them is they gave me my money back one hour after I checked in because I left immediately to find another place to stay. Off-the-beaten path places deserve a lot of leeway, but ... as previously mentioned the smell in the room made it impossible for me to stay. And even though they... More

I booked and payed on line, but when I arrived, there was no reservation for me, so I had to pay twice... and the worst thing is that it has nothing to do with the advertisment on the net.... It is true that you have Internet WIFI, but you have to share dirty rooms with beatles... NEVER AGAIN
