El Faro is in a great location, inexpensive, adequate for a short stay. We tried to make reservations online and when that didn't work we actually called. Our Spanish wasn't good enough to determine if we had a reservation or not. Apparently not. Do not count on it in high season like Carnaval. Our AC didn't work so we were... More

Cons: Misleading advertising!, first, the picture that they show of the pool it's not from the hotel, the rooms are cleanish, the wifi it's free only in the lobby (not available in the rooms), the bed was pretty hard and awful, mosquitoes bothering all night because the windows doesn't have mosquito nets, the water in the shower was warm for...

It was life saving experience to finally find a hotel in Veracruz where the receptionist spoke English! very well located, café de la parroquia nearby, it was an amazing choice for us. Our room was clean and with a very nice street view. Although is a very busy street during the day, it was quite by night. We absolutely recommend... More

The hotel is ok for the price, it has a good location and it is clean. However, I'm not so sure about the staff since I got into troubles with one of the receptionists. My friends needed to store their luggage somewhere so I offered them my room as I was about to stay one more night in Veracruz. The... More

I was travelling alone in Mexico for 2 weeks and spent only a couple of days in Veracruz. Stumbled upon El Faro. Centrally located, with cafes and shops nearby. Free wifi (very important!!!) Staff are very friendly and helpful. The owner is a very caring host who speaks fluent English. She made good recommendation on restaurants and things to do,... More

The inexpensive hotels in Veracruz that we found on Tripadvisor did not excite us. We also consulted a couple of popular guide books and had a list of a handful of affordable hotels to try in the center of town. We looked at rooms in two of them but they were dark and uninviting so we moved on, walked past... More
