We recently stayed at the Colonial for three nights. It was a short stay but we had been to Puebla before and it is still our favorite city in Mexico. Puebla has such beautiful old colonial architecture and this hotel is no exception. The interior of the hotel is amazing and you miss something if you don't explore all over... More

Puebla Mexico is an amazing city, esp the downtown Zocala area. So many curches, most buildings over 300 years old and in great shape and use, wonderful good, active shopping areas, wonderful artist community. Clean, safe, walking distance to some of the most amazing Baroque and Neo-classical churches and buildings in Latin America. Hotel location is perfect. The Service is... More

I am finding writing a review difficult, as I don't like to be negative. Pros: Location! It's a beautiful old building. As recommended by other reviewers, I had an upper room facing the street: being able to open the large windows over the pedestrian street was amazing. Very clean. The pillows were very comfortable. Cons: I felt like the staff... More

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
