After first looking at the Del Portal hotel, I walked in off the street and booked a room at the Hotel Posada. It was superior in every visible respect.
The room was large, clean, the air conditioning worked well. Our inside room was quiet Plenty of hot water for the shower, although it had to be adjusted if others were using it.
No complaints here. The price was reasonable: about 850 pesos.
In addition the hotel has charm, and I liked the fact that it was off but close to the zocalo.
Now my complaint, but it most likely wouldn't deter me from staying here again.
The front desk clerk had somewhat of an attitude. Nor could I get a discount for paying cash. This really surprised me, as the last three hotels had given me large (and I mean large) discounts for paying cash! Maybe my poor Spanish needs to be better. She later gave me a hassle when I asked for an extra blanket and pillow, since there were three of us. "The person who does this isn't here right now. You can have them tomorrow." But, we were only staying one night. I persisted and whether the guy returned or not, we got them in a few minutes.
On the other hand, the night clerk was very helpful and friendly, letting me use the hotel computer to print out my ticketbus receipt. He was in school for hotel management. There's wireless in the lobby and by the pool, but no internet in our room.
The continental breakfast... Oh, well. Judging by the people who were taking breakfast, the clientel were mostly Mexican families on vacation.
Overall a good choice. I'd definitely consider staying there again.
