I stayed with my husband at this hotel for about 4 nights. It was book through another agency so we didnt really knew what to expect until we got to the place. Even though the agency told us it was a 4 star hotel I would consider it more a 3 star hotel. The property is simple overall but it... More

I would stay here again and stayed with a group in Jan '14. The staff was very helpful and friendly. They let us use some of the courtyard space as a meeting location and also made a fire for us in the hearth. It was cold overnight but they will provide more blankets if you need. It is very close...

I have been staying at Rincon de Cuca for several years, both when I come to San Cristobal de las Casas alone or when I bring a small group. It's a family run hotel, with excellent service. The rear patio around the well is charming. Rooms are always very clean and rates are extremely reasonably priced. . I run a... More

Perfect hotel, close to the center (less than 5 min by foot). The staff is very kind, the room with a king size bed (for only 550 pesos) was super clean and comfortable. After a lot of research, this hotel was definitely the best value we could find in san cristobal.

Rincon de Cuca is very lovely pleasant family hotel just a few minutes walking from the "Plaza de la Paz". Rooms are clean, comfortable, cosy and quiet. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is very nice and enough. Coffe, tea, juice, bread, eggs, fruits... Fire place in the lobby gives the hotel a special charm especially in the winter... More

From the location to the service and price, this simple place has everything you need: clean, comfortable, peaceful and cozy. If you can stay in the rooms of the front, you will have an excellent dimension of what an old house in San Cristobal is. The people that work over there is really kindly.

Small and dark rooms, however in san christobal you need a hotel only to sleep and therefore its an excellent option. Clean and friendly staff, you can also book by telefone and doing a small pre-payment. In the winter and spring months warm cloths are highly recomended as the hotel has no heater.. Enjoy!

While I was in San Cristobal, I checked out a number of other hotels ranging in price from MXN400-1000. I came away convinced that Rincon de Cuca is the best value. Great location, very clean, nice staff and functional room (plus working internet) ticked all the boxes. The hotel itself is an former colonial home and has lots of nooks... More

This is one one of the best - or maybe even the best - hotels I stayed at during my 4 1/2 months trip through Central America and Mexico. I chose it after reading the enthusiastic reviews on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed. The hotel is new but built in colonial style. It is very comfy and classy. The rooms... More
