The hotel was very comfortable and it had a very fair price. Our room had an amazing view of the Zócalo and Catedrál of the city, giving it a great ambiance. The service was good and effective, except at the parking, which was a bit messy. The WiFi connection didn´t work very well.

This hotel has been my favourite one for many years; then things started to change and I had to look for better options. Prices started to get up, but the level of services didn't follow up. Besicdes, a few issues started to become more and more frequent, such as the internet having more and more trouble and the ever-lasting problem... More

We had a room on the seventh floor facing the Cathedral, wonderful. The hotel is located very close to the main square, the zocalo, which is a beautiful and full of life. The old city of Puebla has many interesting buildings and churches, all within walking distance from the hotel. The continental breakfast was adquate.

I can't say enough of how impressed I was with the service. I think Mexico in general has lower service than say the US. We have traveled to most major cities in Mexico and tons of small ones....this place was excellent. It was a refreshment from the heat of bad service we have experienced throughout the trip, which we expected.... More

This whole area of Puebla is a world heritage location and righty so. Incredibly charming area and the hotel is right in the middle of it. Just a block from the main square, the Zocalo and convenient to everything, shops, restaurants, markets, cafés, museums. Comfortable room, large bathroom with magnifying mirror and hair dryer; no fridge or coffee pot which... More

Puebla's downtown area is beautiful. It's full of people walking, historic buildings and delicious restaurants everywhere. This hotel is a block away from the Zocalo (the main square) and is surrounded by many amenities like drug stores, restaurants ans shopping centers. The price is very competitive and the hotel staff is very friendly. I made a reservation but found the... More

As I was staying in this hotel on a business trip, I needed to connect to my company website on a regular basis, uploading and downloading data. After a couple of hours, my wifi connection (very slow) was reset and a message appeared letting me know (You have reach your data limit). What a surprise and a pity in 2014...... More

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
