My husband and I spent the weekend in Puebla at the Hotel San Leonardo after a week working in Mexico City. As with all the hotels I've picked using Trip Advisor, it was superb.
The staff was friendly and able to help us with all our needs (we are pretty self contained) and not intrusive. We have limited Spanish skills and were easily able to communicate.
The hotel itself is beautiful with a traditional and historical air about it without seeming overly formal. Although we didn't eat in the restaurant, the menu looked excellent, with reasonable prices and was open from 7 AM to 11 PM. There were many restaurants very close by, at various price points.
Our room was on 5th floor at the back of the hotel, with a tiny balcony where we had a fantastic view of jillions of church domes including the Zocalo AND the volcano! Wow! That was the best part. Awesome! We thought the front of the hotel facing the street would have been more noisy (although it wasn't a "noisy" street, it was narrow with solid 2-8 story buildings and there was quite a bit of traffic), and we would have missed the volcano! It was very conveniently located, just a couple of blocks from the Zocalo--easy to find, easy to walk to and from all the activity of the town square. The church bells were a nice touch.
Our room was very clean with 2 quite firm double beds. The beds seemed smaller than regular double but since there were 2 of them we could spread out comfortably. We had an air conditioner that we could control ourselves so were able to maintain a temp that was comfortable to us. We missed not having a refrigerator to chill our beverages, and a setup to make coffee but would not have traded anything for those conveniences, which were readily available nearby.
I would highly recommend Hotel San Leonardo. We will stay there next time we go to Puebla.
