My husband and I stayed at Hotel Jovel for 5 nights in a pretty corner room on the 3rd floor. It had outside windows on 2 sides and was very comfortable, bright and cheery (some rooms opened on the inside corridor). It had great WiFi in the room and plenty of blankets. The interior garden was beautiful with nice places... More

Very pretty place, with rooms surrounding a pretty courtyard. We stayed here as we wanted somewhere with parking facilities. The views from rooftop were lovely. San Cristobal is freezing, and the rooms were cold. But had extra blankets in the cupboard. Would've been nice to have an option for a heater. Apparently, they do have heaters for hire but we...

Look-- if you haven't done anything outside of Mexico besides Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, Cabo, etc, and you expect similar lodgings-- best pony-up and get a room at your familiar chain-- can't remember if it's Best Western or Holiday Inn or whatever. If you want a decent room at a decent price that's a couple of blocks off the main walks... More

Food is expensive and not good at all, the room had a black water smell and they didn't do anything with my complain. I booked 4 nights and in the third one they told me that my room was booked so I had to leave the hotel sooner and stayed at the hostal. Tours were not ok because they didn't... More

good quality price ration. The hotel is simple but clean and very well located. Our room was on the second floor, quite big, quiet (windows give onto the internal courtyard) but very cold at night (no heating....). Bring anyway mask and earplug. The view from the roof terrace is really nice. Breakfast was very good and cheap. Do not use... More

We stayed for one night in the posada, which is the cheaper part opposite of the hotel. The room was ok although pretty cold at night. For quite a low price, this would be ok. But at the reception, we really suffered from a second-class treatment. They always asked for the room number before helping with information or tips to... More

This is a nice average hotel in San Cristobal. They had a problem with my reservation that i paid and reserved online. They wanted me to pay again for it, they checked it and fixed the mistake. The rooms are small but comfortable, we stayed 2 nights but they didn't clean up the room once. The garden is really pretty... More

We walked in (Aug '11) and got a room on the other side of the road (with common bathroom) for 150 Pesos. For the price, the room was really nice (if small), and we loved the intricately folded towels. The bathroom wasn't the cleanest but it had hot water. The WiFi signal didn't reach our room so we had to... More

This is a nice hotel with a lovely garden and great views from the terrace. We took one of the rooms on the third floor to have more light. The rooms are a good size, nicely decorated and with a decent bathroom. The room is a good deal at 400 pesos but breakfast wasn’t included. We went to a great... More
