I spent two nights at the Gran Hotel Diligencias in May 2015. This was by far the nicest hotel during my trip. The room was large, and had a king-sized bed. Bathroom was nice, the room spotless and kept well cleaned. Air conditioning was strong, which is nice in Veracruz. Staff were friendly, and helped arrange transport to the airport... More

We booked a room with 2 double beds via Tringo for about $62/night in March 2015 and the value was great. The hotel faces the zocalo where music goes on far into the morning (I woke up at 2:30 AM and the bands were still playing). The French doors open to a view of the pool below, the blackbird-filled trees... More

Gran Hotel Dilegencias is located right on the zocolo, or town square, of Vera Cruz, right where you want to be. Walk outside your door, and you will find something interesting happening. Music on every corner, dancing and other activities right across the street every evening, and a variety of food and coffee places.The Hotel is clean, and the staff... More

Location is great, you can walk anywhere, staff is very friendly and hotel conservation and cleanness is what you expect. This is great value and you get a nice rest. What else can you expect from a hotel, better only at home.

The hotel is extremely clean and the rooms have been remodeled. The pool was really cold. They don't heat it up. While usually this may not be a problem. During winter is a different thing (specially for those of us not use to cold water). The views are absolutely beautiful. You can see all downtown from there. Next time I... More

The best place to stay if you are in Veracruz. Hotel is located in historical center, close to Acuario and Museo de Cera, port of Veracruz. Across the road is a Cathedral. I came for four nights but had to leave earlier. The hotel returned the full amount for the remaining nights. Nice breakfast, lots of fruits. Room was very... More

Everything is great in the hotel, they even matched directly the price of internet competitors. The rooms are great, nice and clean. Just avoid the ones at the end of the hall, they are next to the AC motors and they are really noisy. The pool is nice but really cold.

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.
