My parents and I had adjoining rooms on 30 and 31 December. Our stay was a frustrating mix of good and bad. Bad: 1) their room had one armchair (which the hotel, oddly, calls a ‘sofa’), mine had none at all, so we were forced to wheel the desk chairs from one room to another. Not in itself a big... More

This hotel has a little museum in the lobby. The rooms were clean and the chirping birds in the lobby were a pleasant surprise. I was disappointed that the gym did not open until 7:00 a.m. and it was not possible to get breakfast for an early departure. The computers were accessible early in the morning and late at night...

I used to be a frequent guest at this hotel 1n the 1990s, early 2000s and I always enjoyed my stay at the hotel. The property was built in 1912 evoking memories of days gone by, a USS Titanic contemporary. Because of my connections I was always upgraded during my earlier stays but did not have any connections to think... More

I was there, recommended by a friend. The good thing of the hotel is its history, and all the old time stories. But now it's getting obsolete. There are leaks in many rooms, a lot of humidity (and smells a lot when you go into the room). The pool was not working (I choose this one because of the pool,... More

This hotel is one of the most beautiful hotels in Mexico. It is centrally located to everything what is needed whether you are on a business trip or for vacation. I stayed there already 8 times and compared to other hotels in Monterrey I have experienced too, this one is my favourite. The staff is friendly no matter at which... More

This is the twelfth time I have stayed at the Ancira while travelling on business in Monterrey. Comfortable rooms, helpful staff, all in a safe and very clean environment. The Morellos is almost right outside the door, great shopping. I have to mention the breakfast buffet. Simply wonderful, lots of variety and healthy choices. This hotel seems like my home... More

A long weekend spent in Monterrey was augmented and facilitated by the helpful staff. Nice price. Excellent facilities and clean quiet room. Hotel restaurant was wonderful. Perfect location for Macro Plaza and other sites.

Stayed there a couple of times and couldn't get any deluxe rooms with running hot water or heating/cooling. Had to sleep with the window open. Water took over 15 minutes before the hot water started flowing and the tub drained poorly. Receptionist kept saying all the rooms are booked and I can't switch to another room. Or that they will...
