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.

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

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
