We stayed there for one night. The staff is very nice and the hotel is clean. The elevator is super small and takes a while. We were stuck in the elevator for a few minutes going up, but managed to open the door and get out. The rooms are clean. At around 5 a.m., we woke up to the room... More

Moderate price, pleasant staff, excellent location. Architectural style is a little weird, mixed textures, woods, tiles, and stone throughout. Very clean, but in need of a little maintenance. i.e. all that remained of a close up shaving mirror in bathroom was the frame, but it made an excellent towel hanger. Lots of hot water, good water pressure, and nice towels.... More

Good price, clean, helpful staff, within easy walking distance to everything, restaurants on site that I heard were good (from my traveling companions). I do wonder at the beds in this part of Mexico however. I had brought my own pillow but if I said the mattress was super firm, it'd be an understatement. If you want to save money,... More

The hotel is a reasonable budget option located in the historic centre of Puebla close to the Zocalo. However, it is not a 4 star hotel. The lobby area is very small and has no seating area (only three stools for the users of the PCs). WiFi works well. What I did not like at all is the ventilation system... More

This budget hotel is just a block off the zocalo and within walking distances of most sites in Puebla. The rooms are large and include satellite TV and free wi-fi. The front desk is Spanish-speaking only and the furniture in the rooms is somewhat battered. But, all in all, this is a place to be recommended. I have stayed in... More

The hotel is in a good location, very near the zocalo. Clean and roomy, but old and not luxurious at all. Well priced, is a good option if you are looking into a 3 stars hotel. The hotel is one block away from the zocalo, main plaza with lots of restaurants too. The staff were friendly, it was fine. The... More

The rooms are clean and quiet, the wifi is good, the location is central, the staff are friendly and helpful. Best of all is the price. We paid 550 pesos for two people with a bathroom and a TV. The dehumidifier seemed to rum permanantly, but we quite liked that. We checked out a lot of places to stay, even... More

This hotel has two great things: price an location. it is located downtown, one block away from Zocalo and the very good restaurants that surrounds the plaza. We asked for a two bed's room and we got one twin and one full. That was a first. I lost the flip coin, so I have problems sleeping in the smaller bed.... More
