Lovely looking property just off the main square, so it is a very convenient base for exploring the area around San Cristobal. Breakfast was good and with many choices but, given that Chiapas is coffee central, surprisingly inadequate coffee. Rooms are very big, comfortable, A/C worked well. Downsides: WiFi was shaky at times and hot water was poor. First night... More

You might not be inclined to reserve a room in Mexico at a hotel that bears the name of a well-worn hotel chain in the States, but I've got to tell you: the Holiday Inn San Cristobal - Espanol will make you think differently. It is a lovely place, the old Hotel Espanol updated. The location couldn't be better: half-a-block... More

You´ll either love this hotel because of its quaint colonial nature, or you´ll miss the comforts of a newer hotel. The hotel is extemely well located, within just a few metres of all the action. The cathedral, main plaza, shops, bars, restaurants etc are just around the corner. If you´re coming from the bus station it´s about ten blocks. It´s... More

This is a difficult hotel to review. I had two rooms during my stay. The first was completely unacceptable: a very dated bathroom, dark, a small desk in an alcove, a lot of external noise and a damp smell. I asked to be moved for my second night. This room was large with a high ceiling and a fireplace. There... More

Great hotel and room. We loved how the hotel itself perfectly fit the spirit of San Cristobal, while also maintaining every comfort. Friendly staff helped us with all our needs and organized trips. It has wi-fi. No gym (only two machines, basically no gym), no swimming pool, no spa. Only negative note: we reserved one of the organized trip but... More

Like other guests have mentioned, this hotel offers a superior location in the center of San Cristobal. It's a short distance to the Cathedral, Santo Domingo and walking streets. In November 2013, the hotel was under renovation. Due to dust, noise, long construction hours, etc., it was not pleasant at times. They accommodated a room change to the back of... More

My roommate arrived a day before I did and had already changed rooms before I arrived. Our original room was very close to the construction being done on the restaurant and she said it was very loud and smelled of chemicals and construction materials. We were changed to a lovely room in the back on the third floor with a... More

Not a typical Holiday Inn, this hotel has a lot of character and a colonial feel to it. The courtyards are attractive, quiet places to sit, although the hotel is very convenient for the centre of town. Our room was spacious, pleasantly cool, and clean. It looked out on to a car park at the side of the hotel, and... More

We booked the hotel 2h before arrival, paying with priority club points. We arrived and had a pleasant surprise. Normally the Holiday Inn hotels are standard hotels with no special details. This hotel is located directly in the center with a beautiful patio and (at least our room) a nice, spacious and clean room. also the hallway was nicely decorated... More

Stayed two nights in this beautiful colonial building with three patios. Our room was spacious, beds were comfortable (I like a firm mattress) and we had no problem with noise but that was because we looked out onto a patio. No problems with hot water either but we did have problems with the heating and aircon. There appeared to be... More
