We returned to this hotel after several years. When we visited last time we felt like we got real value. Beautiful place, great price, excellent service. This time we felt the place was time worn, old stained carpet, mold on bathroom tile, poor internet service and overpriced. Service in both hotel restaurants was terrible.

This hotel has seen everything of the lifestyle of the Portales. They did a great job refurbishing all the services and the location is in the heart of Veracruz. We have been here many times and the view of the Portales is spectacular. The rooms are big with all services and although it is not my style of interior design,... More

If you interest is local life this is the perfect location, it is in the zocalo, we got a room (317) with the zocalo view and it was excellent, just like others have commented it is in dire need of an update in the rooms, but then again the price is in accordance with the condition, it is not bad,...

Excellent location on the Zocalo. Friendly, English speaking 24-hour front desk. Large rooms. If you have the hotel get a taxi for you they have a favorite driver who does not seem to be the least expensive. We got a quote from him to drive us to La Antiqua and Cempoala and on Xalapa for 2000 pesos, whereas another very... More

Rooms are large and immaculate. Furniture is generic "big hotel" style. Air conditioning is integrated into ventilation and is effective. Additional bottles of water are reasonably priced. Staff are generally helpful. My only complaint--and it causes me to deduct a star--is that when I needed to leave quickly for the bus terminal the person at check out had ZERO knowledge... More

The lobby is grand and the breakfast is very good. Everyone on the staff was friendly and the hotel is in a great location right across from the plaza. The rooms have a dated feeling, but everything is functional, clean and comfortable. Our only problem was initially programming the safe, but once we had help there were no other problems.

This is probably the most famous and popular hotel in Veracruz. It is next to zocalo. We stayed there at MXN 900 per night and found it very good value for money. Seafront, souvenirs market and restaurants and some attractions are within walking distance. Receptionists and staff at business centre were very helpful. Double rooms were big. Our room for... More

It is a great location from which to see all the sights of Veracruz. Hotel is but a short and inexpensive ride away (less than 8 dollars US). Hotel is clean and very accommodating to most of your needs. I stayed for 5 nights, so after 3 nights I needed laundry done. Front desk told me, 'in the morning'. But,... More

We drove into Veracruz with a rental car from Xalapa. Arrival at the hotel was pleasant. The front desk was helpful and the staff handling the garage was also very helpful. We had planned to spend two nights at the Gran Hotel Diligencias but extended an additional two nights. The room we had was comfortable and clean. Wireless internet was... More

Our experience at the Gran Hotel Diligencias was great. The staff was friendly and although my Spanish and their English were both lacking, we had no problem communicating. The hotel is right across from a lively square in what appeared to be a safe area, even after dark (when the activity picks up). There are also plenty of good restaurants... More
