“Comfortable Hotel at a reasonable price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

We stayed at the Hotel Colonial Real for 1-night in mid-Feb ($37). The hotel is conveniently located on a cobble-stone colonial street only 1.5 blocks from the Zocalo. The lobby and secure parking are located across the street at the older Hotel Colonial.

Our 2nd floor room was spacious and clean, with 2 double beds, a small desk, a wall-mounted TV and tile floors; no refrigerator, safe or hot water (and it is cold in the highlands). There was a narrow balcony with a chair, and a nice view of the street and the valley and foothills to the east.

There is a restaurant at the hotel, but it was not operating because there were only 2 guests staying at the time. There were several good restaurants at the zocalo; all opened early for breakfast and closed late in the evening. There was also a mini mart at the zocalo, and a Banamex with an ATM.

Comitán is a regional centre with a pleasant zocalo that is quite lively at night. It is a good base for a day of touring the Chinkultic ruins, Montebello lakes, El Chiflón falls and the Rancho Nuevo cave. The Hotel Colonial Real provides comfortable accommodations at a fair price. We recommend it.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

I stayed one night in the Real Colonial. The staff were friendly, and the hotel looks to be newly renovated. The room was clean and pleasant. The bathroom had a very small shower, with toiletries provided. I had a little trouble with the wifi, but the friendly man working the front desk was helpful and gave me the code for their sister property across the street, and I was able to use that from the lobby area.

My only complaint would be that I didn't get a great night's sleep. There were several quite loud people congregating either in the lobby or the dining area, even after the dining area closed, and they stayed up until the wee hours. My room was on the first floor, next to the dining area, which certainly didn't help. Some hotels will enforce quiet hours, others do not. I ended up sleeping with earplugs, which did help somewhat. If noise is a concern, perhaps ask for a room not on the first floor.
