My son and his beautiful bride-to-be chose this for all of his family and friends coming from out of town. We were all on the same main floor. What a wonderful amazing time. The hotel was super beautiful and clean. People working there were amazing. My room (112) was beautiful, super clean and well stocked with coffee and water, fresh towels and toiletries ... so nice. The shower was excellent. A short walk to the wedding venue and favorite restaurants. A few steps downstairs to a wonderful breakfast and delicious coffee every morning. I will never forget my stay here, or my wonderful time in Xalapa MX.

An old small finca with great history. Possibly original layout and well tended gardens, with decent reception and waiting room along with a charming barber shop. As much as I like open inner courtyards, they do carry all kinds of sounds into the rooms, especially when the existing doors are flimsy old wood, and the windows have single glass panes. Bare bones decor, much needed light in front of the sink to shave properly. The restaurant below serves a good hearty breakfast a la carte. Location in the Centro is a big plus as I was able to walk everywhere and felt safe even at night. Staff seems to be made up of part time employees and maybe for that reason found them impersonal. It is puzzling that someone bothers to reply to reviews since there was no one behind the desk that seemed vested in the place.

It isn't the fault of the poor people who run this place, but a nightclub next door makes it literally impossible to sleep. How do I know? As I write this it is now 3:25 a.m. as I write this and they are still going strong . How bad is it? I have high quality earplugs in and tried covering my head with a pillow ...nope....still hear it. Inseams to make the whole hotel actually vibrate.So...great place to stay if you are a Mexican University student and want to stay up all night dancing and getting loaded and then plan t sleep it off in the next day...not so great if you just came to Jalapa to visit the museum because you are interested in culture and hoped to get some sleep the night before. In a nutshell, this place is my own personal idea of hell

Charming colonial-style spot in a great location. You’re close to everything but it is still peaceful behind the thick walls. Our room was two levels - a downstairs with a sofa and bathroom and an upstairs sleeping loft. The nice thing about this arrangement is that if someone wants to get up early or stay up late reading they don’t disturb the other person. The downside is that if you have bad balance or mobility issues you may find the stairs difficult as they are narrow and steep. Also, the heating unit is fine but since it is upstairs it doesn’t really heat the lower level. Water pressure and temperature were fine (always a sticking point for me here in Mexico). Breakfast is not included but it is really delicious and worth it. Beds were hard but not old or saggy. Overall, a fun place to stay and great value.

A beautiful boutique hotel. This place was so charming. The suite was a good size. Great value for the price. We had good service. Great location, just one block off the main road in Centro histórico. Spotless and great WiFi!
