This hotel had quaint Mexican rooms, clean and tidy with nice hot water. The garden area was lovely to sit in and have a beer and the staff were friendly. It was a five minutes walk to the centre where it was vibrant with life.

We spent two nights here on a Maya tour. Staff were friendly and helpful. The general ambience of the hotel is very good. Lovely gardens, spacious bedroom, great hot shower (the latter perhaps dangerously so, but is easily adjusted with the cold tap). Unfortunately on both nights sleep was much disturbed by noise off and on for most of the... More

We stayed here 1/15-1/17/2015 & had the exact opposite experience of the 2 most recent reviews posted here. Concierge service was courteous & professional; zero problems with our quick and easy check-in/check-out. Rooms are spacious and immaculate. Restaurant menu was good, service was excellent even when waiters were busy with large tour groups (12-20 persons each). Purified water provided not... More

horrible service! Forget the restaurant, they were without customers, three staff and we could not get served. No heat and really cold at night. Had fireplace but they had no wood one night. Next day we left three contacts for fire, and still had to remind the front desk. Serious management problems! I speak fluent Spanish so no language problem.... More

I don't recommend staying here for two good reasons. The first is that it is a long walk, several blocks at least, from the zocola (main area) of San Cristobal de las Casas and it takes a good half hour, if not longer. It's very inconvenient. You can't just drop in and out of this hotel during the day. You... More

The room was comfortable and clean. The one we had was not facing the garden and was a little dark but that also made it more quiet. The large garden is beautiful and a good place to just relax; we saw several hummingbirds and it was quiet and peaceful. It's a few blocks from the tourist streets which suited us... More

It's a great Hotel. It's a bit far from downtown San Cristobal but its well worth it. Very calming atmosphere and great gardens. Very nice place to relax. The restaurant has great food. The staff is very helpful and nice. The hotel it's self is beautiful.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. It is a beautiful place with very big gardens with trees and flowers. The rooms are good. Not very luxurious but kind of nice, and clean. The staff is nice and helpful. There is also a good restaurant for breakfast with low prices. You only need to walk like 4 blocks to... More
