I stayed for three weeks in hotel colonial as part of a group of students. The good: The hotel is an historic building, and is really pretty! Great location. The rooms are much bigger than I was expecting. The people who work at the hotel are great! They are friendly and provide great service. The bad: The hotel is really... More

Not the best hotel. I probable wont return. The internet was on and off the whole time. My wife and i asked for one bed and they gave us two. Our shower had holes in the tile where they turned the wáter on and off.

Very well located small hotel. Good dining room. Pleasant and good service. I have been returning to this hotel for years and see the same loyal employees each time. I plan to continue using this comfortable hotel and recommend that you do also.

We arrived to this beautiful hotel in a old colonia building around 10.30 a.m. Our room was not yet ready but we were very well welcomed by the receptioniste at the lobby. We received instead a very beautiful family, double floor room at the second floor above the main entry to the hotel. It was like a dream for us... More

Hotel Colonial is without doubt a beautiful building and is located only a block away from Puebla´s main square, so close in fact that to me it doesn’t seem worth spending the extra simply to be right on the Zócalo, as majestic as it is. The area is perfectly safe, even in the small hours, and is full of wonderful... More

What a place! In the center of Puebla, one of the oldest buildings in town. Charming, big rooms. Lovely courtyard, roof terrace with view to the volcano. The restaurant served the best mole I have ever tasted. The only minus: the sofa groups outside the rooms unfortunately invited certain people to sit and chat loudly until 4am, just outside our...

Located just a half block from the beautiful Puebla zocolo where you'll find fountains, the city's principal cathedral, and within easy walking distance to the Parian Market and other fine shops in the City of Puebla. Built as a Jesuit monastery in 1698, this well-cared-for building has served as a hotel and restaurant since the middle of the 19th century.... More

Built in 1865....so don't expect a plush hotel. We loved it! When we arrived from the airport, the taxi driver dropped us off on the street, pointed and said "That's your hotel." So we carried our luggage half a block. When we entered, a very pleasant young man was happy to take us up on the oldest working elevator in... More

The Colonial Hotel in Puebla Mexico is an great place to stay while in Puebla. Just two blocks off the Zocalo in the zona historica. The staff are very good, helpful and were very patient with my ' espanol paquito' . Beds were little firm for our liking. I would stay here again.
