Nothing special, rooms are clean and spacious with simple decorations, and location is optimal for visiting the city. The breakfast is disappointing as it is advertised as American but all that is served are fried eggs, fruit salad (watermelon, papaya, yellow melon), cornflakes, yogurt (sweetened only), toasted bread, industrial marmalade and coffee....could be improved!

Got a Jr suite with a fireplace and glad we did. There is no free breakfast, the icon on trip advisor is wrong. King bed was soft and comfy. Room was on 3rd floor and had a mountain view which is hard to find near the zocalo. Walking distance to outdoor markets, night life, museums, and churches. Overall, happy with... More

This hotel (or two hotels?) is very well located very close to the main Plaza in San Cristobal and also very close to the three strolling streets in the town. The main building has the restaurant and bar which makes this a 4 star hotel. However, we stayed in the Annex which is only the front-desk and the rooms which... More

I stayed in this hotel one night and it had all I needed. Very close to all attractions and 5 min walk to the bus station, spacious comfortable quiet rooms with hot water and free Wi fi, and helpful staff who let me leave my rucksack when I arrived in the morning, plenty of food and coffee places around. It... More

My wife and I spent three days in this typical, clean and friendly hotel. The food at the restaurant is very good with Chiapas specialties included. Bathroom recently remodeled, clean and complete. Our only complaint is the room floor, very cold and uneven. Location is perfect for strolling in the two nice "andadores", very close to the Zocalo and the... More

This is an excellent location being only two blocks from the square. The staff is super friendly. I booked through hotel.com and they didn't have my reservation when I arrived but after a few minutes they were able to find it an all was well. There are two locations. The main hotel and the secondary hotel which is on the... More

We spend two days at this hotel at our three weeks roundtrip in Mexico. The location could not be better, just 5 min walk from everything. Nice athmospher in the neighbourhood. The hotel have spacious rooms, no need for aircond because of the low temperature in night. Clean and warm bedclothes. The bathroom also clean and enough of towels. The... More

We spent three nights at this hotel. At the beginning the hotel staff sent us to the adjacent hotel which is almost a block away from the one with the parking lot. It was a misunderstanding while we made the reservation but the personnel was very helpful to accommodate the three of us at the main location with the parking... More

Overall we enjoyed our stay, San Cristobal de las Casas is beautiful. Upon arrival at the hotel they told us our room was in another building, just one block away. This was pretty surprising because we didn't know this when doing our reservation. The other building looks newer, the only thing is that you have to check in and out... More
