Hotel Tierra y Cielo, also known as Doce Cuartos, is a beautiful old colonial house converted into a super cozy hotel. The hotel is located at the city centre just a couple of blocks away from the main pedestrian street. The rooms are traditionaly decorated, but modern. The bed is huge and very comfortable. Extra sheets and a heater are... More

The hotel looks nice, our room was clean and good sized. The bed leans and towels were very clean and bed was comfortable. The service was great, people very friendly and quick service. The first night was very noisy, kids playing around and people screaming next to the reception. Second night was free of noise.

I had such a pleasant stay. The staff was fantastic and most of them remembered my name and where always making sure I made it back every evening safe (I traveled alone). The location is great because you can walk everywhere. I love the breakfast there - great green juices. My room was the one on the corner. It was... More

Beautiful old house that was renovated to be a hotel. You can't do much better as far as price, location and service is concerned. People are very friendly and will take care of all your needs. Restaurant is amazing and their food offering is anything but ordinary. This place is ideal for a group because it has beautiful outdoor patios... More

Reasonably priced and perfectly situated, we spent a wonderful four days at Hotel Tierra y Cielo. Just a block and a half of the Real de Guadalupe, San Cristobal's pedestrian way in the heart of town, I started each morning by going to a nearby coffee shop to get two cafe americanos to take back to the room. It made... More

Warm welcome, friendly staff, huge comfy bed and pillows, hot water, great wi-fi, great restaurant, close to the centre and restaurants. We liked it a lot, would have been excellent except for the noise from the traffic that starts at around 7am (except Sundays). But being a hard working tourist you should be up by that time ;)

I recently stayed at this hotel during a conference in San Cristobal. The hotel is quaint and cozy and has a fantastic restaurant by the same name. I had a tremendous poached chicken dish with ripe plantains and mole that was some of the best food I have eaten in Mexico. Drinks are extremely expensive. I stayed in room #104... More

We were a little unlucky with the noisy street corner room. The room itself is very nice and had a good bed. The small sitting area in the courtyard looks a little outdated. They seem to have a great restaurant, but the two snacks we took in the outdoor area were both very dry of taste. So we decided not... More
