If you are lucky enough to visit Xalapa – a busy town sprawling on the side of a lovely valley – and you wish to meet some of the best aspects of Mexican traditional culture, you could do a lot worse than staying in the El Mesón del Alferez (this means “the Lieutenant’s Inn” – ask for more information!). It’s... More

This is basically about the restaurant and their breakfasts. Probably the best in Xalapa. Efficient service from the wait staff, lots of locals breakfast there, especially on weekends, with plenty of authentic Mexican food. The place I always return to.

I'll start by saying that if you book a room here online, call to confirm. We received an email from the hotel confirming our reservation but when we arrived, they did not have us confirmed. Thankfully they had a room for us. The location is very central but the rooms are lacking. The rooms are clean but the beds are... More

Centrally located near the cathedrals, the city square, and with in walking distance of a lot of great restaurants and coffee shops. Front desk people were indifferent, the phone seemed to hold there attention more than we did standing there. Rooms were clean, small and very basic. Seemed pricey. Breakfast that came with the room was also average. Secure parking... More

The best thing about this stay was that they had an awesome deal associated with the restaurant. The rate included a small continental breakfast, but you could take the price of that and deduct it from other items on the menu. On our first morning we did that, and the breakfast was just delicious. On the second morning, we had... More

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
