We spent one night at Hotel Catedral Vallarta. Overall I would say it is a very nice place. I echo what others say that the staff are incredibly gracious and helpful. The courtyard is surrounded by plants and artwork and a perfect place to have a quiet cup of coffee in the morning. Coffee is included and very good. Wi-Fi... More

This hotel is in a perfect location, close to everything. The staff are incredibley gracious and accomodating. We had a standard room and for the price was small. The bathroom was as small as on a cruse ship, however no counter or hooks to hang or put anything. It was fine for one night but not for longer stays.

We stayed two nights at Hotel Catedral on our visit to Puerto Vallarta. Hotel Catedral is an older hotel with reasonable rates; the location is excellent, only a short walk from the Malecon and the Romantic Zone, Puerto Vallarta's major tourist attractions. The hotel has no elevator, the stairs are not steep but it is still a climb to the... More

The hotel was delightful, and the staff was great. However, the beds were like sleeping on the box spring. They advertise pillowtop beds, but that was not the case in our room. I went out and bought an air mattress in order to sleep.

We recently stayed here for one night. It's located a block north of the artisans' market along the Rio, and two blocks from the malecon. We had the penthouse room with a small balcony over the street. Friendly, good service, and a good night's rest. Our only drawback was the four flights of stairs that didn't work too well with...

My Dad and I stayed at the Hotel Catedral Vallarta this past January while he had some dental work done. The room was pleasant and the staff went out of their way to be helpful, putting us at ease while waiting for contact from the dental office and fetching ice late at night to help my Dad deal with the...

Hotel Catedral is one of those great little hotels where writers and artists will find inspiration! The rooms are beautiful and spotless and many have wonderful views over the tile roofs of the charming centro of Puerto Vallarta. The hotel is charming, with lots of Mexican folk art, textiles and cool murals by Fredy Ayala. Los Muertos beach is a... More

This is one of those hotels that even if you live in PV you have to experience it at least once. We stayed 3 nights there and the service started the first minute we got there. We got at least 3 hours before check-in and we were ready to wait in the lobby until the room was available - to... More

My husband was unable to travel with me on this trip and I was a little apprehensive, however all my fears were allayed when I was treated like royalty and family at the Hotel Catedral. The staff is absolutely accommodating, the rooms were spacious and spotless, the hotel was wonderfully quiet, comfortable, and welcoming. Its location is a hidden jewel.... More
