I discovered this Posada through some friends who live in Jalapa, after explaining them I wanted a place both central and quiet, which might have been difficult to combine. La Mariquinta is both and more, with the privileged feeling to stay in a historical house and a nice museum of arts, as I was offered to visit what still exists... More

Stayed here 1 night while traveling in Veracruz state. B&B is located in a nice colonial mansion, rooms are in the back garden. Rooms are OK: TV & wireless (which you have to pay extra for). No breakfast though In the center there are several place for breakfast so you don't have to go far for it.They also have suites... More

Charming boutique hotel, with exceptional service and a welcoming and understanding manager. While the rooms are a bit oddly laid out - owing to it's being a converted private residence - it's charm and convenience make it a great value. Plus, in spite of being "in the middle of everything", it's very quiet and a relaxing retreat after a day... More

I stayed at this Posada during the Hay Literary Festival, held in Xalapa from the 6th to the 9th. The hotel is charming, the reception area which is a living room gives it a homey feeling. I had a small suite that was more than adequate. The hotel does not serve breakfast but there are quite a few great places... More

We are Mexico travelers and our favorite part of Mexico is the state of Veracruz which has everything within its borders including the small but interesting capital city of Xalapa. There are several small nice hotels in the city but Posada La Mariquinta is our favorite. It is a little more expensive than the others but the privacy, the beautiful... More

We travel in Mexico a lot, We like hotels that have character, where the staff is friendly and helpful, that are clean, that have plenty of hot water, and that have reading lights for the beds. We prefer to be in the historic centers. We do not require the latest in American- style facilities or conveniences. Great character and cool... More

My wife and I have stayed here for the last 4 years for a month at a time. We stay in one of the apartments so I have no comment about the individual rooms. Our apartment is perfect for our needs since we like to make our own food from time to time. The inn is very quiet although a... More

For the good news: The owners were very understanding when we were so delayed by our flights that it took us 2 extra days to get to Xalapa. We e-mailed them the minute our flights started to go haywire and kept them informed of our delays as they were happening. They did not charge us for the two nights that... More

Stayed here for one night. Beautiful grounds, I had a nice and quiet comfortable room in the back. They have WIFI and laundry service also for an extra charge. The place is also very secure since the front entrance is always locked -- then give you a code to punch in on a panel outside which will open the door... More

In March this year I stayed at the Posada La Mariquinta, in Jalapa, Veracruz; an enchanting place that offers to the traveler a great range of rooms, suites, mini-suites and mini-apartments (Estancias). I love the fact that the prices have a sliding scale down and the more you stay, the less you pay. I enjoyed its excellent location a few... More
