I was in posada jovel
staff is very nice and helpful, I was vey sick they took care of me, I felt at home environment.
posada jovel has a very nice big garden... really! it is unusal in the hotels in san cristobal, the natural flowers in rooms, I think this the reason posada jovel costs a little more money at other places

I am always really wary about reviews that slate a hotel, but I feel really strongly that this hotel should be avoided at all costs. We were travelling through Mexico for 2 months and had a wonderful time and were really excited about arriving in San Cristobal. The Posada Jovel isn't a nice place however, from the first day we were surprised at the unhelpful and at times rude attitude of the staff, which was in such a great contrast to everywhere else we had stayed.

We were then subject to a really unfortunate incident where the rather highly strung owner, who seemed to enjoy a drama, kicked us out of the hotel for pointing out that they had ruined all of our clothes in their laundry. Jovel is a pretty hotel, but I would hate any other travellers to experience what we did, which was a stressful and upsetting stay when there are so many other great places to stay in San Cristobal.
