We spent the majority of our Honeymoon in Yelapa in absolute serenity, so we weren't quite looking forward to spending much time in the hustle and bustle of Puerto Vallarta. That said, our stay at Hotel Catedral Vallarta was absolutely worth our two days in PV!!! I can't say enough--the Hotel is gorgeously quirky and totally, totally unique! The staff... More

I chose this hotel because of its convenient location, a special break on price, and its air conditioning. I was pleasantly surprised by the art work and decor, which are much nicer and more tasteful than the hotel's own photos would suggest. My room was lovely, with a quote from a Mexican song adorning one wall, embroidered pillows and drape... More

The best things about the hotel are it's location downtown as well as the excellent service by the people that work there. There is art distributed throughout the hotel and the hotel is extremely charming. Note that this is a budget hotel so don't expect perfection but if you are looking for reasonably priced, charming and friendly accommodations this is... More

Carlos and his staff were very accommodating and very friendly. We enjoyed 4 nights at Hotel Catedral 6-10 July 2014. Location is excellent in Centro, and only a short walk to Zona Romantica. They have great coffee from Veracruz region in the morning. Rooms are great for the price and the hotel is close to most everything one needs for... More

If your type is all-inclusive resorts, this is not the place for you. However, if you want to live like a local and stay near all the great restaurants and food stands, this hotel is ideal. The front desk was so friendly and helpful, and the room was clean and sufficient. It's no 5 star hotel, but considering the great... More

This hotel feels authentic. It is in the middle of the old town, three blocks away from a beautiful cathedral, short walk to the beach and shopping/dinning area, away from all the all inclusive hotel zone (which i prefer). Staffs are super helpful.

I was here for 7 nights and stayed all the time in room number 31. The room was big and clean. The bathroom was also clean and appropriate. I didn't have any problem with hot water (you had to wait for 1 or 2 minutes for it to come). The staff spoke enough English and were friendly. This hotel does... More

We spent a few weeks at Hotel Catedral (into a suite) and it has been a renewed pleasure. The decoration; the location; the gracious and helpful staff; the caring management; and the adapted answers to our request made our stay feeling like at home (even if it is narrower). The serene atmosphere and the security feeling help us enjoy more... More

Stayed here for four nights in April in the beautiful penthouse suite. After reading the positive reviews I was pleased that the hotel lived up to expectations. For those who prefer a more authentic hotel this is for you. Friendly staff and central location make this the ideal hotel for your stay in beautiful Puerto Vallarta.

Great hotel in the heart of downtown Puerto Vallarta. If you are looking to experience the local culture and aren't looking for the "resort" experience, this is a wonderful little place. The people working at this lovely little hotel are welcoming and warm. Rooms are comfortable and include a great little air conditioner and ceiling fan. Our room was spacious... More
