Beautiful antique style hotel with beautiful wood furnish in the rooms, just a few steps from downtown. Great breakfast, with traditional recipes, must try de homemade «requeson» bread with hot traditional chocolate or a hot cup of local coffee. The rooms are quite noisy.

Coatepec is a Pueblo Màgico, and you do not expect much of the hotels. However this one has very bad internet, in some rooms even none. Some of the rooms are really tiny, in two levels: bathroom, sofa and TV in the first, bed in the second. Door barely open and the stairs are really dangerous. Smell like someone smoke... More

We stayed in June 2013. On arrival the desk staff were polite, but the young man showing us to our room was very well mannered indeed, offering us a choice of vacant rooms. Great start. The room was rustic and basic, and in honesty the bathroom could do with an update. But otherwise it had some lovely features, and was... More

Dear guest, We would like to thank you for sharing the issue you had in our restaurant, we have taken the appropiate measures to make sure this never happens again. We do bake our bread and this was completely unacceptable. As you mention errors can happen and the response in this case was not appropriate, we are sorry you had... More

This is a beautiful hotel located a couple of blocks from the Zocalo. It is a short drive from the university and all of the major city sights. Check-in was efficient and reasonably friendly. I had a single loft room which is quite narrow so it was a challenge to lay out my large suitcase. The comfortable bed is located... More

I was excited to stay at Meson del Alferez on our first visit to Xalapa. We probably will not stay there for our next visit. The hotel's location was great--just about one block to the cathedral and zocalo. The hotel and our room had a charming design. The staff were courteous and helpful. Parking, though a block away, was inside... More

If you want to be in the center of the city, this is the place. Beautifully maintained, comfortable, good staff, decent wifi, clean, good breakfasts, and on and on. Our room was 103, right next to the reception area. It has the infamous staircase leading up to the loft and the sleeping area. The stairs were a pain but it... More

We stayed here two nights and were delightfully surprised by the location, nice staff, and cute room. -The location is central, 1 block from parque Juarez. -There's nothing stuffy about our loft room. -The plumbing is even good with loads of hot water and pressure! -The beds are firm but not so hard like Chinese beds. -Breakfast was also very...

We absolutely loved Mesón del Alférez. The rustic beauty was delightful and peaceful. The meal we had at the hotel's restaurant was superb. The atrium is lovely with plants and flowers. I am going back in November!

After 8 years, I found everything very much the same: superb central location, friendly and helpful staff, colonial charm, excellent restaurant. Be aware that walking Xalapa involves climbing, so being close can be important. Other highly-rated hotels are quite a distance from downtown - some too far for a comfortable walk. This hotel is convenient. Again, as is often the... More

We travel to Xalapa several times a year and have found our home-away-from-home in El Meson de Alferez. This charming, nicely renovated hotel still holds tremendous colonial charm. Our family of four fits very comfortably in the suites which consist of a comfortable main floor (queen bed, bathroom and small sitting area) and a large loft with a another queen... More
