This would be a much more positive review if the price was about half what we paid for a weekend night ($200 USD). On the positive side: friendly & efficient English speaking staff; super clean; nice design elements; cool pool deck with a view; firm mattresses; great location about a 10-minute downhill walk to the Zócalo; good water pressure in the bathroom with plenty of hot water. The room rate included a decent continental breakfast. Unfortunately, some of the negative comments from a previous review still haven't been resolved. An outside door bell has been installed and remote controls for air conditioning are now available, but only one of the electric outlets worked so we wound up unplugging the TV set to charge phones, etc. Foam pillows were small and lumpy. Bathroom amenities are limited to soap; shampoo and conditioner are in glass (!) containers in the shower. I couldn't get either one to come out, so I wound up unscrewing the top with slippery hands, happy that I managed not to drop them. This is a new branch of the Design Hotel group, so if your taste runs to spare, contemporary-style hotels that remind me of an upscale Motel 6, then maybe Flor de Mayo is for you. At prices like this, I prefer more value.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Flor de Mayo Hotel & Restaurant brings to Cuernavaca a new perspective on design and tourism, embracing the history and culture that characterize the city and adopting the main element that makes Cuernavaca the City of Eternal Spring, and that is the marvellous weather all year round. A fusion between an old historical building (19th C.), the rise of a new construction and the City of Eternal Spring give life to the hotel, benefiting from the kindness of the weather and flora of this city and developing a "floral exuberance" as the main factor in the architecture of the hotel like a contemporary adaptation of the French rococo to this Mexican city, where the vegetation invades the architecture and is a local traditional tree: "Flor de Mayo", what becomes the ambassador of this exuberance. ... more less
