“Classy, Comfortable & Charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2005

It's a gem of a hotel. I was put on the executive floor at a phenomenal rate, so perhaps my perception of the hotel is a bit skewed. Nonetheless, the service was great, a very clean hotel overall - the history of the building gives the Gran Ancria a touch of class and charm. If there's anything sub-excellent, it would have to be the food; the buffet breakfast is rather adequate.

The Ancira is an old hotel with a lovely lobby and grand staircases. The staff are very accommodating and pleasant. The rooms are on the smaller side but what you would expect from an older hotel. If you are a business traveller make sure to ask for the high speed internet as it is not in every room on the exec floor. Exec lounge is a good but closed on week-ends. Restaurant is expensive for Mexico and not a very interesting menu, skip it. The telephone message system is only in Spanish so if you are not a speaker you need to have the operater erase your messages to get the dial tone back. A minor annoyance but one that could be easily fixed.

The staff were friendly at check-in, but when i called the front desk later that evening due to a window problem the man who picked up was extremly rude and when i went down they ignored me and told me to come back later.
The room was big, but the hotel is a little old. I recomend staying at the Holiday Inn Fundidora, even though that hotel is not downtown it is WAY better!!!!!! More modern and more attentive staff.

We just returned from a 3 day weekend in Monterrey. I took my family of 5 (children 12, 10 and 4) along with friends and their two kids. We had a wonderful stay. The staff were quick and efficient, providing everything we desired. The buffet was increadable, expecially the breakfast, if it was not on the buffet the waiter had it prepaired for us, no extra charge. But the best part of the stay was the final night.
We were all sitting in the restraunt/bar allowing the kids to eat sweet-bread having coffee. My friend and I were enjoying a good cuban cigar when my 4 year old came to the table and wanted to have one too.
The waiter heard him and immediatly returned with hand rolled candy cigars for him. (made his trip) Now I don't condone smoking or promoting it for children, but this is just one example of the type of service that they provide.
