We had a wonderful stay at El Beaterio. The service was warm and welcoming. The staff was wonderful from the front desk to the cooks. The facilities were clean and charming. Everything we wanted in the Zona Colonial was within walking distance. We were supposed to stay at another hotel at the end of the trip but cancelled it, so we could return to El Beaterio. If you like boring cookie cutter hotels, don't come here. If you want a wealth of history, charm, warmth, security and convenience this is the place! We loved the stone and tiles. This was an old monastery that has been upgraded very tastefully.
Be sure to use their taxi guy, he is a good and fair man!
