This was the hotel I stayed in when I first visited Xalapa. Xalapa is now my home. Excellent, very clean, well located near the city's colonial downtown, on a quiet street. There are several decent restaurants nearby. Please note that this hotel is downhill from the downtown centre, so it is a bit of an uphill hike to get to... More

The style of this hotel is lovely, a sort of rustic/monastic feel (in a very good way, if that makes sense). Very calm and tranquil. The rooms are lovely. A previous review said the rooms were cold. I wasn't cold at any point but the thickness of the walls do make the rooms cool. There were plenty of blankets in... More

The big problem.... No parking available and lack of survilance. I parked my car right in front of the hotel on the street but the car thief tried to broke into my trunk and dostroyed the lock. This cost to me big bucks. Will not use this hotel any more !

This is a well located hotel, very clean, and reasonably priced. The rooms are very well-shaded which means that at times they can be a bit cold. I found the breakfast a bit mean, although you can pay extra for a more generous breakfast. It wasn't the most friendly place I have ever been to but the service was acceptable.

The room was clean, had nice beds, had hot water, had international channels on TV, etc. However, noise from the room above could easily be heard (including the voices), the shower was so small that it was difficult to get inside and then close the door (which swung inward), and the room was absolutely cold at all times even though...

You say "Jalapa", I say "Xalapa" but don't let that discourage you - this is a charming university town with beautiful parks, gardens and walks. Lots of nice restaurants and hotels but the Posada Del Cafeto is best. On a quiet street, just a couple of blocks from the beautiful Jardine, this inn is spotlessly clean and very charming. Lovely...

We stayed a couple of nights in this hotel, visiting our daughter who was studying for the semester at Universidad de Veracruzana - Xalapa. The hotel was on a quiet side street with a wonderful courtyard once inside. The rooms were comfortable and quiet. The room price included a continental breakfast and for only about $2 more, we were able... More

An oasis is a busy city. Quiet, quaint, with beautiful garden and grounds. Very clean and comfortable. Excellent security. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The breakfast is great and served hot. We came for one night and this is our 5th. You should be pleased with your choice if you decide to stay at Posada Del Cafeto.

This hotel is located within walking distance of the downtown attractions. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The rooms are arranged around a small, pretty garden. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is included, and you can get almost anything you want, with unlimited coffee and orange juice.

La Posada del Cafeto was a wonderful experience for us all. Tucked in the heart of Xalapa, you enter through a secured unassuming front street entrance to reveal a stunning secret paradise as unique and enchanting as Mexico has to offer. The rooms are very clean and well attended to regularly for replenishment and clean linens. The aesthetic was a... More
