“Good hotel, great location, some flaws”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

Pros: Great location, very good breakfast (not included in the price), reliable, high-pressure shower. Cons: Even when I asked for a quiet room, there were lots of noises all day long and also during the night; man at front desk not very kind, parking lot is 2-3 blocks away, way up; mattresses and pillows are not comfortable but cheap, room right above ours was very noisy all the time, like someone was dancing in the wooden floors.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing the streets. Ask for a quiet room, maybe in the upper floor.

Stayed at La Casa de Piedra for the second time. Mostly OK this time except for one big problem – mold and mildew everywhere. The tables in the common area had mold on the tablecloths. We removed one and the table was covered in black mold. Our room had a very musty smell and the bedspread always felt damp. The whole place needs a thorough scrubbing. If I return to Cuetzalan again, I'll probably stay elsewhere.

We were the only guests for 3 nights in October 2010. Our room (#17) was rustic, but clean. The shower had great hot water and lots of water pressure. A nice capable ceiling fan (always on high though) cooled the room when needed. Restaurant wasn't open. Loved Cuetzalan and its people! We will return someday and will stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2010

This is a very charming family-owned hotel, converted from a former beneficio de cafe right in the middle of town. The rooms are surprisingly quiet , given that they all windows out to the street, but Cuetzalan is not a noisy place and I can't imagine this ever being a real problem. The location is excellent: a few blocks downhill from the main plaza and market and off the more trafficked streets. Most of the higher rooms look out to the surrounding hills. Some hotels work so hard at constructing atmosphere that the results seem forced. The Casa de Piedra isn't one of those, but it conveys the feel of the town effortlessly and without condecension to either esidents or guests.

The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are clean, and as 'modern' as anyone has any right to expect in a town seemingly as suspended in time as this one is. The rooms follow through on the hacienda style, rustic (but comfortable) and open to verandas overlooking a pleasant central courtyard. As is common, this type of room can be quite dark (except for the 2-bed loft rooms on the top floor. Anyone planning to read should bring or buy locally a couple of lightbulbs with the appropriate wattage.
December evenings can be cool, but there are lots of blankets.

Breakfast isn't included in the room rate, but the price was good - with excellent and unlimited coffee, fresh juices and delicious Cuetzalteco and more standard Mexican fare available.

Stayed 3 nights. Loved Cuetzalan, so interesting/charming. This hotel appeared to be prettiest when I searched on line, and it is indeed, though as others said, it's rather expensive. The place was practically deserted 2 of the 3 nights we were there. Perhaps because there were so few guests (or absence of owners?), the staff pretty much ignored us. The mid aged woman (an owner?) who checked us in, gave us quick info about making reservation at Jarritos that night for voladores etc (same ownership) and also about nature tour next day. Think she was on her way somewhere. We weren't sure if breakfast was available/included or not. An abundant buffet on Sunday (late) at 75 pp. Don't think anything was available other days. Temezcal seems to be defunct. It was very cool and rainy in the eves we were there, and when I casually mentioned temperature to staff attendant in the a.m he offered space heater (but hadn't known they were available). Nevertheless, the room was large, furniture rustic in a charming way, hard wood floors, great shower. Beautiful garden/courtyard. We had a double room, but noticed a suite or penthouse on 3rd floor that looked fantastic, with its own balcony. We didn't avail ourselves of any tours available through hotel or ask them for any info. A terrific young man/guide, Eustaquio Flores Contreras approached us in town, and he became our guide to the area for the next couple days. Highly recommended.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at La Casa De Piedra Hotel during our honeymoon in 2006. Our stay was amazing! The town is beautiful and well worth the extra traveling time to get there. We were lucky to find such a nice hotel with a wonderful staff that was more than happy to help us have a beautiful time. The husband and wife who own the hotel arranged a horseback riding excursion as well as gave us great tips on dining.

Our room was very large with a rustic feel, yet with all the amenities you would need. The hotel is located very close to the center of the town. Sunday market is exceptional.

We loved it!
