I spent a few nights at the de Gante in September, 2015. I was given a room with a nice view of the plaza. The room was enormous. It was clean. The attached bathroom was small, but did have plenty of hot water. The proximity to the plaza did mean there was a bit of noise, not much could be... More

We had a decent stay here over the course of two nights. We asked for a room overlooking the plaza but either they did not have one or did not want to let us stay there. Our room was nice sized. Very budget mind you. If your expectations are low then you will not be disappointed. It is right on... More

I paid about $37/night through booking.com--it would have been much cheaper to walk up and get a room. They have a credit card machine but it didn't read my MasterCard. Huge modern room, huge bed, very clean. Hotel is directly on the Plaza de Armas. Wifi. Hot water, but the shower pressure wasn't great. No restaurant onsite but there are... More

I stayed here for three nights and pretty much fell in love with city and its friendly lively inhabitants. The hotel was clean, and there was plenty of hot water and good pressure. The front desk was friendly and efficient. It was conveniently located near the plazas filled with music and laughing people which made this city such a great... More

It's not a very pretty hotel, but it's not ugly either. It's a bit old, very big (kind of scary also) but the hosts are very nice and it is just in the corner of Plaza de Armas, right in the middle of San Luis Potosí downtown. The only thing I didn't like was the bathroom, because it was a... More

Need to be more careful with the cleanness...We found a cockroach in the bathroom...Very good location it is a few steps from the main plaza, very friendly staff. No elevator and we stayed at the second floor so it was a bit hard with the luggage!

I've stayed many times at the Hotel de Gante, and will stay there again on my next visit The staff has been very helpful. The prices are reasonable for San Luis Potosi The place is a bit dark, especially if you have a room with no windows to the street. The location is great, just off the main square, but... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend for two nights, visiting his famly and friends. For the amount you pay you get a nice BIG room with a HUGE bed. It's located right in the middle of everything and the view was right over the plaza. It's good for a short visit, but I don't know if I would want to... More

The location gets 5 stars, it's right across from the main plaza. The hotel needs to be remodeled but for the low price, large room, and location it can't be beat. The only negative thing we did not like was the very low water pressure.

Recently spent a night here en route from Zacatecas to Real de Catorce. For 350 pesos (if I remember rightly) it offers pretty good value. The room was very nice with modern furnishings. There was cable tv and the wi fi signal was good. From the window I could see the cathedral and plaza. The bathroom however was not to... More
