Cons: Misleading advertising!, first, the picture that they show of the pool it's not from the hotel, the rooms are cleanish, the wifi it's free only in the lobby (not available in the rooms), the bed was pretty hard and awful, mosquitoes bothering all night because the windows doesn't have mosquito nets, the water in the shower was warm for...

It was life saving experience to finally find a hotel in Veracruz where the receptionist spoke English! very well located, café de la parroquia nearby, it was an amazing choice for us. Our room was clean and with a very nice street view. Although is a very busy street during the day, it was quite by night. We absolutely recommend... More

The hotel is ok for the price, it has a good location and it is clean. However, I'm not so sure about the staff since I got into troubles with one of the receptionists. My friends needed to store their luggage somewhere so I offered them my room as I was about to stay one more night in Veracruz. The... More

The inexpensive hotels in Veracruz that we found on Tripadvisor did not excite us. We also consulted a couple of popular guide books and had a list of a handful of affordable hotels to try in the center of town. We looked at rooms in two of them but they were dark and uninviting so we moved on, walked past... More
