A good place to stay and affordable for what I received. It is central to the city so you are able to access things very easily and walk into the city center to see the sights. Shops, supermarkets, public transport and restaurants/eaterys pretty much on the doorstep. There was no drawer for me to put some clothes, and no bar... More

This was a horrible experience. I booked a room 2 days too early. So I asked front desk if they could move the date up and they said no because it's a 3rd party site, www.venere.com. So I tried to call venere no answer. I got the hotel to call them and still no answer. I decided to cancel since... More

Like other reviewers I found the Hotel Portobelo to be safe, clean, comfortable and convenient. It is within strolling distance of the Great Cathedral and other tourist attractions and by chance I happened to encounter a big parade during my stay at the main plaza. Despite having a window that faced the main street, the well appointed room was very... More

Guy's, this place is very good in all aspects of a nice stay! I was here last month and must say, I was really happy with everything. The service is helpful and always smiling. The cleanliness of the rooms, hallways and building itself is really impressive. I got a few drinks at the bar and music was very enjoyable, the... More

This hotel is a gem that is hidden in plain sight, right in the middle of many tourist activities and shopping districts. The rooms are nicely furnished and clean, one thing I really like is that the room is designed to be eco-friendly in terms of electricity usage, the lights are activated by the key card for the room, so...

The room is well decorated, TV is OK, it has an HDMI input that is a little bit difficult to reach, if you are traveling with kids this has no price as you can get Netflix running from your computer or tablet or any device with an HDMI output ( I always suggest to bring a 5' Redmere HDMI cable...

I found this place looking for hotels with good location near the city center of Guadalajara. Since I was only going for the weekend and wanted to relax a bit I got a room/suite with jacuzzi and the best view. Their customer service was not exceptional in any way but the price I paid for their suite easily compensated for... More

Feet away from the intermodal subway station Juarez it's very well located. By far the best value compared to the same price hotel. It's at a walking distance from all the major touristic sites. Very clean, our room was on the street side, but was not noisy at all, due to the quality of the window. Free and ample parking.... More

Booked a room 2 queen beds . When I get there they did not have my reservation! When they finally confirmed I did have one (once I gave them my reservation number) they found it. However they had me booked for one king size bed. Tired and hungry after a long flight my kids just wanted to relax. The receptionist... More

Just returned from a two day stay at Hotel Portobelo. We were pleased to find they are upgrading and maintaining the hotel. There were new towels and new sheets and new comforters and pillows and new window coverings as well. Congratulations! Makes us even more committed to stay at this beautifully located hotel.
