Since our normal hotel was booked we decided to stay here especially because of the price for the hotel and its location in Puebla. The hotel was close enough to walk to both the bus station to Choula and the central downtown Zocolo and the shopping areas. The hotel has hard beds, no safe and is just a bit outdated... More

Stayed here on an Intrepid Basix tour and this hotel basically did what it says on the box. It is basic, no bones about it, but the location is great, it is clean and I didn't really find anything to complain about. My room was on level 4 and consisted of 1 double bed. The sink is in the bedroom... More

Our backpacking tour company booked us into this hotel. The staff were nice enough but the hotel itself was poor. It's really well located but our room had a window onto the corridor to the lift. Down the corridor was a light well above the restaurant. Which meant the room was fairly dingy and we heard everything that happened in... More

I was in the hotel two nights during an organized tour. The good point is the location, walking distance from the main square. Otherwise the hotel is old and smelly, with no light in the rooms which are located around a central hall (or better hole?) so that it strongly reminds of the structure of a prison. The service is...

Stayed at San Angel for 2 nights as part of a tour. My friend and I shared a room with double beds each. The bathroom, toilet and shower over bath, was small and tired, but had no issues with cleanliness. The basin is located in the main room, which is the bedroom. This room was quite spacious and more than... More

Well located, is the main quality of this hotel. Although clean enough but so old, redone long ago and re-redone and repaired in all kinds of ways...very minimal accommodations...noisy, or otherwise without windows, and average service...restaurant, a joke !!! One night when tired...but otherwise, search elsewhere if you want more than "basic" basics...

The advertized 4-star hotel at 2-3 star rates is too good to be true. You receive what you are paying in terms of service and facilities. However, location is great and even excellent if you are traveling by car due to the included parking. Puebla is a very nice place to spend a whole day. So if you do not... More

We spent one night at this hotel on the way back to MEX. The bed was a double, but it was super comfortable. We had a sweet little room on the second floor facing a small park named after sister somebody. After ten PM it was as quiet as could be. The guys at the desk spoke a moderate amount... More

Part of a Gecko's tour. This hotel is built around a central courtyard, villa style, and was a welcome change from our hotel in Mexico City. Wooden floors, cool in the rooms. Nothing flash but the staff were friendly, things worked, it was clean and comfortable, economical and magnificently located for the Zocalo and sites of Puebla. Restaurant downstairs was... More
