“Business Trip to Mexicali”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

I stayed one evening at the Araiza in Mexicali on a recent buisness trip. I was given the name of Araiza by my contact down in Mexicali as one of two places to stay. The rooms are nice sized, the staff is very helpful and friendly and the breakfast is great. It is a bit noisy (so ask for a room away from the street). I would definitely recommend if you must go to Mexicali.

Room Tip: In the new area away from the street.

I've stayed at this hotel twice and had great experiences both times. The food quality and selection is very good, service is outstanding.

I left my $300 Bose headset in my room. I called the next day and Dalia said they had found it. Since I'm in the US, shipping int'l is not that easy. Dalia went above and beyond the call of duty to get this returned to me. Several phone calls and more than one trip to Customs to get this done, but she always seemed to have a smile on her face when I spoke with her.

Thanks again, Dalia! You rock!

The hotel is located in a good area and the installations are good. There is a swimming pool (which will be a nice option if you visit Mexicalli during summer because the weather is so hot). There are green areas and tennis pitch. There is a laundry area where you can do the wash by yourself. The rooms are big but the beds could be better, the may have to renew them. The air conditioned machines are very noisy but about the weather sometimes you must use them even during the night. The breakfast is very good, there is a complete buffet, very recomended.

I recently stayed at the Araiza Hotel during a business trip.
I have no complaints, and only praise for this property.

I stayed on the older side of the hotel, but my room was modern, clean, and very comfortable.
The bed was comfortable. There was a small sitting/sofa area, and the bathroom was modern and clean. (but not much counter-space due to the type of sink installed)

The property itself has a gated and guarded parking lot.
There are two restaurants. One is a buffet style place, but you can also order off the menu.
The dinner I had at that restaurant was just "okay". Nothing wrong with it, but nothing special. Their breakfast, however, is outstanding.
The other restaurant at the property is an Aisan place, but I didn't try it.
There is also a large, nice bar area near the lobby.

The staff was very professional.. from the front desk, to the cleaning crew, to the wait staff. They were all friendly and helpful.

The location is near just about everything.. but I didn't walk the streets. I stayed on the property in the evenings. (although there is plenty of pedestrian traffic in the area.)

When I go back to Mexicali, I will continue to stay at the Araiza.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new addition.

I have been staying here Monday thur Friday for over a year. I have stayed in over 15 different rooms and always have had great maid service and very clean rooms. The staff is very helpful and friendly making sure my stay each week is as comfortable as possible. If something is wrong they fix it in a timely manner or give me a different room

I stayed at the Araiza based on the pictures. The bedding was old and not like the online pictures. The bathtub had stains. My biggest complaint is room service in getting the linens changed on my 2nd day. After multiple calls to the front lobby to no avail. I had to go there personally to vent my frustration that they had not been changed. The manager was by the clerk listening and had no empathy. It was not done until after 3:00pm which upset me. My complaint is that the manager stood there and said nothing to apologize for the delay or offer anything for the inconvenience. I went there instead of the lucerna which is as online and the staff is superb. I will not recommend this hotel and will never waste my money staying there.
