This hotel,is quaint, very Mexican, wonderful staff, clean rooms, affordable and so near the old town and walking distance to good restaurants and the beach. There is no pool facility but lounge chairs to recline in during the hot afternoons. Rooms are not large but comfortable. The wash basin and mirror are located in the shower stall which can be...

The property itself is a gorgeous, artistic, boutique style hotel beautifully decorated with great art and furniture. The staff communicates well in English and is very helpful. It's in a beautiful location of old town in a very central location. It's just a couple of blocks away from the Malecon and the mercado with plenty of other shops and an... More

I stayed here with my 14-year-old son and 1 year, 4-month-old daughter. It was a nice quite place. They made us feel right at home. I enjoyed their complimentary coffee, tea and cookies from 7 am to 11 am.

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.
