As others have mentioned, this hotel is right by the zocalo, which is one of the treasures of Mexico. Sometimes the activity can verge on sensory overload, but being across the street does provide a buffer to the activity. I requested and received a room on a high floor on the side street, so I only had a sliver of... More

This hotel is very clean, the staff is friendly and helpful. The location is the best that this hotel has to offer: Being in front of the Portales, you save a lot of time and money in transportation, as you can walk to many of the city's landmarks.

The hotel is located in the heart of Veracruz, you have a great view of the park from either the rooms or from poolside. You can go out at night and walk aroud the good part of Veracruz. Here´s a 360º picture I took from poolside: http://digital-editorial.com/recorridos360/HDiligencias.html

I stayed in this hotel during my visit to Veracruz. The hotel is centrally located near the "Cafe de Parroquia" and the port. I will definitely recommend this hotel, clean and comfortable and good value for money The personnel is quite friendly they have a parking in the place and the environment is child friendly

We stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed the hotel. It overlooked the zocalo (main park) so we could see and hear much of the activity but when we closed the well-insulated window, it was plenty quiet to sleep. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were nicely appointed, quite large, and recently renovated. There were some... More

We originally stayed at a different hotel in Veracruz but decided to stay in the town an extra night and wanted someplace closer to the zocalo. The room was huge. There's even a mini fridge and the walls are pretty sound proof when the Windows are closed. The pool was wonderful and there's even a shallow depth pool that my... More

I loved the hotel. It was very nice, clean and because they mixed up my reservation they offered to upgrade me to a junior suite for a small fee. I was really happy with everything until the final bill came, when I saw that my wife and I had been charged for an extra breakfast that we did not eat.... More

Location is perfect. We enjoyed a room overlooking the Zocalo, even with the sound of nightly music and dancing. That was part of the charm! Our first room didn't meet my expectations and the staff quickly moved us. Breakfast Buffet was included in the cost and was more than adequate in selection. Female staff at the front desk during the... More

Well, I should say that 100% this is one of the best places to stay in Veracruz. The room was huge! Big bed, clean and comfy, spacious bathroom. Fridge, safe box, iron, writing desk, table... All you need. Small balcony. Perfect view at Zocalo area. Wi-Fi. I didn't try restaurant but right at the back of the hotel there's a... More

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.
