Great location!!!! Walking distance to multiple scenic sites, attractions, activities and restaurants within downtown Puerto Vallarta. Local shops, proprietors and the traditional cobblestone streets give you a "local" ambiance not found in the "Box Hotels". Staff is extremely friendly, helpful and willing to give an extra effort. Rooms are very clean and decorated with traditional Mexican tapestries and bright colors.... More

The location of this charming little hotel was perfect for my stay for three days while I wandered around and photographed the historic Centro and Zona Romantica of Puerto Vallarta. Within a few blocks are the oceanfront Malecon, the public market, artisan booths on the island at Rio Cuale, art galleries, the main cathedral, and restaurants. The hotel is in... More

I recently stayed with my mother (who is a senior citizen, aged 91) at this hotel in the heart of Puerto Vallarta for 4 nights: what a perfect choice it turned out to be! We very much appreciated being within (short) walking distance of the Malecon, the Cathedral, and other local attractions and restaurants, and were very pleased to be... More

My wife and I spent a week at the Hotel Catedral in downtown Puerto Vallarta. Located two blocks south of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, two blocks east of the Ocean and El Malecon (Sea Wall and Walkway) and one block north of Isla Cuale and Zona Romantica, this ideal central location allowed us to walk everywhere, especially to restaurants...

hotel catedral was a sweet little place to sit, read, sleep, and enjoy the simple elegant decor and service of the friendly staff. It is traditionally decorated and the variety of art, murals and pretty subtle furnishings. We enjoyed the patios and fountain and a pair if bats that visted in the evening. i will definitely stay here again.

We've stayed at Hotel Catedral several times now as we pass through from Seattle to Yelapa. Normally, it's been our go to but after several experiences, I think we'll move on to something else. This last trip, we stayed twice on either end of going to Yelapa. The people are quite nice and we like them a lot at Catedral... More

We had a wonderful stay in the Old Town. The customer service was wonderful. It was tough to get a taxi at 4:30am to the airport, but the staff was very helpful with this. We had a good sleep and it wasn't too noisy.

Hotel Catedral was perfect beyond our expectations. From the moment we arrived and were greeted and attended to by Gervaisio, our time at Hotel Catedral was delightful. The charm of this truly Mexican boutique hotel is evident everywhere you look - from the colourful and artistic decor to the lovely mexican attire worn by all of the staff. The hotel... More

A simple clean hotel, well maintained, well furnished, attractive atrium, interesting art. The staff are friendly, welcoming, informative, courteous, and extremely helpful. A quiet, relaxing place, situated in a busy, vibrant area five minutes walk from the sea front.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay at Hotel Catedral Vallarta. We felt genuinely welcomed by Gervaisio's offer of Hibiscus tea and his general introduction to the hotel and the area. The hotel has a tastefully distinct Mexican feel with the variety of artwork found on every floor of the building. And in peeking through open doors we could see... More
