European-style? Yes. Upscale? Trying to be. Comfortable beds? Yes. Austere? Yes. Food? Excellent. Great location? Sure. I wanted to try Descanseria on this visit instead of my usual stay at Casareyna. Afterall, the hotel is owned by my absolutely favorite El Mural de Los Poblanos Restaurant where my favorite Chef Lisette works her magic. Indeed, the chef here at Descanseria,... More

We staid here one night, during our 3 week trip in Mexico this year. First, it is perfectly located near the center but in a quiet neighbourhood. We used the valet service, they parked the car just across from the building. The welcome was great, they speak english very good, and one of the guys even spoke french, and was... More

We stayed here on two different occasions and loved it each time. The staff is beyond friendly (and they speak English, which is rare in Puebla, Mexico). The hotel has a wonderful European flair, which is in keeping with the town We were pleasantly surprised by Puebla, as we felt we had been transported to a small village in Europe.... More

Beautiful rooms in this stylish renovated historic building! Great service and breakfast! Our room was facing 5 de Mayo and had access to the patio but we did not hear anything! For any occasion I can highly recommend this hotel!

Just finished a week stay and loved the hotel and the staff. Joseph and Iban were outstanding in the restaurant and the food quality was excellent. Angel the bell attendant was helpful throughout the week. Loved the room, just beautiful and clean. Highly recommend.

The check-in was a breeze, parking was valet, location was superb if you want to explore downtown puebla. Hotel breakfast was a la carte but included in the package so it was all good. The attention by the staff was great, service was timely. Didn't get the normal hello/goodbye greetings that was expected from the staff at a hotel. The... More

Two nights in Descanseria. The service was great. Friendly professional. the design and architecture is clean, above par, comfortable, fresh. Feel of the historic with the brick and modern with the design choices. The location just off 5 de Mayo could be problematic with traffic noise but i heard nothing either night and slept very well. (beds are great with... More

We stayed at the superior rooms down stairs. Huge rooms, huge bathroom. Very good bed with soft linen and comfortable base. Very nice architecture combining the "old" walls, I believe from the colonial time, with a modern architecture. Friendly reception, good restaurant (breakfast included and very rich). Nice lobby with soft background music. Especially for lovers of a modern and... More

We were a family (two parents and an adult child) traveling to visit our son, studying abroad in Puebla. We chose the hotel because of its convenient location near the Zocalo and loved the decor shown in the pictures online. When we arrived, we were not disappointed. The staff was so accommodating, calling a cab for us whenever we needed,... More
