This hotel is in an excellent location in the area surrounding the plaza where the pretty church and municipal building are located. The hotel appears to have two sections, one is the older section with the original thick walls and an interior courtyard. A second courtyard leads to a newer section with a two-story building with what I assume are more recently built rooms. There is a small but nice swimming pool, although it is not heated and the water can get cold.
Our room was in the old section. Although the hotel is nice there were some maintenance issues that such as lock not locking from inside our room. We reported this, but it was not fixed during our 2-day stay. We did not worry much about this as the whole area appears pretty laid back and safe.
Parking lot is ok but there is no gate and they don’t have security there at night. I asked about this and they told me that so far there had not been any problems.
The hotel is relatively inexpensive at less than $50 usd per night and the beds were comfortable. The AC was useful and there was also a ceiling fan. No refrigerator or coffee maker or hair dryers.
As I mentioned before the original area is nice although we have seen similar old buildings that are now hotels that are kept in better shape. These are minor issues such as peeling paint and maintenance in general. Still the hotel is nice at a good price in a good location.
Another plus is the restaurant that serves very good meals at reasonable prices. The specialty is the chiles rellenos, which are really good, stuffed with, shredded instead of ground beef.
Internet works well but it is better to use it outside in the courtyard area or restaurant as the thick walls appear to interfere somewhat with reception.
The plaza is a pleasant place for a stroll and the church is illuminated at night and it is very pretty.
We would stay again at this hotel if we go back to cuatro Cienagas.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are located right across the street from the Main Square and close to everywhere at the Pueblo Mágico of Cuatro Ciénegas de Carranza. This is one of the oldest buildings in town, renovated but yet respecting its original architecture to the extent that we still have the original floors. All the 'old part' of the building is adobe built, typical of the desert but we still have (free) WiFi in-rooms and public areas, a small but cozy restaurant, air conditioning in all rooms, telephone, cable TV, room service and a BBQ area and an Event Room for up to 120 guests. ... more less
