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.

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

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
