we stayed at the Hostal for four nights while attending a friend's wedding. our room (103) was a bit tight (with the king-sized bed), but otherwise very nice. the breakfast was okay, not great (we went one morning to the Rincon Azteca, which was great). the location is perfect, across from the cathedral, on a pedestrian mall. the staff in...

Internet access is spotty or non-existent...most times it doesn't work in the room. Limited breakfast is included, and can add buffet for $60MXN, but food is mediocre. Staff is nice and tries to be accommodating, but limited english hampers their ability to be 5-star for this US resident.

Our excellent tour guide Skippo picked us up for the about 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive to Durango. We travelled the new road passing through 62 tunnels and over the 1,321 foot high Baluarte bridge the worlds highest, and it is 4,101 feet long. An amazing feat linking Matzatlan and Durango and cutting travel time by half. We saw... More

Most of the historic attractions are within easy walking distance of the center of town and the Hostal de la Monja is right at the heart of town. It is located on the pedestrian only promenade (Calle Constitucion) across the street from the cathedral and less than half a block from the main square. |(Plaza de las Armas). But beyond... More

This hotel is in a beautiful colonial building but it has modern amenities including coffee in the room. It is located in the historic center of Durango Mexico on a pedestrian thoroughfare across from the cathedral. It is a few steps away from the Plaza de Armas which is the tourist center of the city. There are city tours and... More

This hotel came highly recommended and we were excited to be staying in such a wonderful location on Constitucion, a lovely street for walking and people gazing. Our garmin sent us around the city about four times because we couldn't park in front of hotel.....note to garmin and hotel....add parking site directions. Finally parked and walked to the hotel.

Hostel Monja is in a great location and is a nice hotel. Our room overlooking the cathedral was very nice, the bed was perfect and the room very clean. The hotel is very old but completely restored and well maintained. The staff were all very friendly and over the top helpful.
