Good hotel, very clean and right at the main square. Rooms with view to the Zócalo are beautiful, but having a view to the street is ok, as buildings have beautiful architecture. Breakfast is included (coffee, fruit or juice, eggs, bread), but access to the buffet in the morning is extra. Wifi is free and of good quality, and the... More

The hotel is centrally located, right at the main square. What I loved about it - the employees very very nice and friendly, unlike in many hotels were the service is not so great. There was a bit of noise from the street, as our room was in front of the plaza, but it's normal, we didn't complain. It was... More

We've just spent two nights at this hotel. The staff were very good! We had booked through a tour company and when we got to our room it had twin beds. We asked for a double bed and the staff happily accommodated us. The front desk seemed to have an English speaker on whenever we had a question and were... More

This hotel is in a perfect location, across the street from the Zocalo in the heart of Puebla. Everything is very close, including many outdoor restaurants. The city tours are less than a block away.. The hotel is an impressive looking historic building. The folks at the front desk were friendly and helpful. A decent breakfast was included. So far,...

I have stayed in many budget hotels throughout Mexico and this is by far the worst. They promised breakfast was included, but failed to tell us the restaurant was closed New Years Day and didn't discount our rate. The front desk person was an unhelpful, smug idiot, and the wifi (only available in the lobby) was mysteriously out of service... More

We ended up here as a last resort as all the decent hotels we're full. The location is great which is the only way of justifying the $80 price for one of their very basic cell like rooms. After waiting 10 mins for the manageress to find a porter who wanted to do some work - reminded me of Fawlty... More

Beware of this hotel. We decided to check out of the hotel in the morning so that they could clean our room and reuse it. We checked our luggage at the reception. When we returned to the hotel to reclaim our luggage the hotel had lost our most expensive suitcase. They promised to repay for the cost of the luggage... More

We stayed here for a few nights in October. The front desk was friendly enough. However, you're supposed to leave your key at the desk when you leave the hotel and it can be a little annoying to get it back when you return to the hotel if there is only one person at the desk and a long line...

Sadly, this hotel could be great, the location on the main Zocalo in the lovely city of Puebla has a great old fachade, Inside the disappointment begins at the reception desk, where the employees are not only not helpful, but blase and rude. The rooms are ugly and small, carved out of what must have once been a grand space.... More
