I read through a number of the reviews here and the noise issue is mentioned a couple of times, and I was very surprised it was not more. I would like to give you my thoughts on the noise issue, based on a Monday through Saturday stay. The issue is primarily with rooms facing the garden or the convention center, which happens to be most of them. Within 50m of these rooms there is one bar where drinks are 20 pesos, bottles of Vodka 450 pesos or so… and there is loud music blaring til around 11-midnight. Obviously with the pricing, the crew is on the younger side. Without a doubt I was the oldest person there when I visited (great time by the way 😊 ). The next bar is right next to the hotel in the garden. Very nice bar, with nice bar tenders, and very relaxed. During the week, normal music, but drowned out by the bar above. Friday night there was a live band. That felt like the band was in the room. Literally. It was the same volume as you would have your tv on at in your room. Another bar is smaller and no issue. The convention center likely affects the rooms facing it (for example “A” – rooms aren’t numbered, but are given letters.) This is painful when they are playing music, then later taking down the venue. So, beware! The ear plugs on my pillow the first night were a clue, and very thoughtful, but not really the right solution. Whoever said there is soundproofing is insane! The “patio doors” are huge pieces of single pane glass that close with no seal. To the credit of the hotel, the Friday night when the band was playing, I went down and asked for a different room ,and luckily V and W were available that don’t have a view, but are quieter (not quiet, but quieter) so I slept there until I woke up at 4am and went back to my normal room. There are other niggles – a/c that is also extremely loud (imagine wall units from the 80s in a Motel 6, but not wall units), though I guess that drowns out the other noise. Breakfast is supposed to start at 7am.. it doesn’t…. I had meetings to get to, so really worthless. And its only the continental breakfast that is anywhere close to ready. The pool was closed. Was supposed to open mid stay, but it didn’t. (the hotel emailed a week before the stay advising that it was due to open mid-stay and then said on check in that it wouldn’t open on schedule.) Lots of service staff hanging around in the basically empty hotel, but not great service. Toilet flush was fixed last day I was there. (It did work, but you were always concerned it may completely break and things be left behind…) I had to sign on checkout that I didn’t take the chocolate cream covered peanut thing in the room(!) (Main minibar key was never provided, nor offered.) All the above said, the hotel itself is interesting in design. Is in a decent location.. I wouldn’t say a fabulous location, since in order to get to the main downtown areas, you need to cross the main road (with the assistance of traffic lights), but its ok. The shrimp tacos from the restaurant were truly amazing…. The level of English spoken for a Marriott property is pretty weak, but manageable. So, overall evaluation – if you go to bed after midnight, get up “late”, and don’t mind a couple of quirks, it is worth checking out. Hopefully, the above is a fair review, I have tried to make it so. To be clear, I was supposed to stay 11 nights, but I just couldn’t deal with it, and have moved to the other Marriott, Meson del Angel. This is further out, but I am way happier here… and if I want to go downtown, Uber works great, and its 88 pesos. ($5.50).

I stayed here for two nights in February 2020, while on vacation. The hotel itself is gorgeous - the open-air lobby area includes a (very good) restaurant, as well as lounge seating, and the rooftop terrace is large and comfortable. Our room was spacious and clean. The location is convenient for anyone who wants to explore the city centre on foot. Hotel staff are helpful and speak English well (important for travelers like me whose Spanish is lacking). The continental breakfast is delicious and portions are generous. My only small complaint about this hotel is that the design of the bathrooms, with frosted glass doors for the toilet and shower, does not afford much privacy; although it is certainly aesthetically pleasing. However, I would definitely stay here again.

The staff were very attentive and the hotel has beautiful architecture. The rooms have a very nice terrace which give it a great sense of space, and are all very clean. The location is amazing, you are walking distance from most places. Would come back 100%.

Because my BFF and I were going to Puebla for the first time, we opted to arrange transportation from MEX to La Purificadora through the hotel. The price was more than double the cost of Uber, but we didn't mind because of the convenience. However, the driver was two hours late and showed up in a dirty car that smelled like cigarettes. The hotel did give us a discount when we checked out. I recommend using Uber. Okay, so, the hotel - we were looking forward to using the pool but were not notified that it's out of service. That's one of the reasons we booked this property. The room was a nice size, although it's a little tired, and the beds and pillows were comfortable. There is not enough lighting in the room, though. And, the bathroom was bizarre. The sink/faucet are poorly designed, so when we used the sink there was water everywhere. The lights above the sink had a weird buzz/flicker to them, which might cause a seizure in some. We had to put on makeup without proper lighting. LOL. The shower took a long time to heat up, and every time someone took a shower, water would leak out everywhere, including the adjacent commode area. It was a mess. The restaurant for breakfast was also lacking. The server did not tell us that there is an optional "Mexican breakfast" for an extra cost until our last day. The continental breakfast was sufficient. I asked for decaf each morning but was only given decaf on the last day. This was a rather disappointing and underwhelming experience.

Dear LolaFelina, We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience in La Purificadora. We are constantly working to improve every aspect of our guests stay, and having feedback of any kind is always very helpful. I'm really sorry about the situation with the taxi that we arranged for you. Even though we work through an external company, they are expected to meet our own standards in every way. We made sure to notify you about the hour-long delay due to a road block, but the condition you described in the car is inexcusable. We'll definitely look into the issues you described in you room, and make you they are resolved before our next guest. I'm sorry for how they affected your stay. I'm really glad you felt like our continental breakfast was sufficient. As a side note, the Mexican breakfast is only served on Sundays, which would explain why you were unfortunately not able to enjoy it earlier in your stay. Thank you again for your comments and feedback, and hopefully we can have you over again, and make sure we deliver a flawless experience the second time around. All the best, Etienne Simonin General Manager
