The breakfast is great and for 600 pesos for a double room, nice and clean and very comfy bed it is spot on. You can't get a better located hotel, but surpisingly still quiet. Wifi is good but doesn't extend to the rooms.
- Free Wifi
- Free Parking
What was good:
- We stayed at Casa Margarita for 5 nights in October. The room was excellent and included safe, daily cleaning service and a great shower with plenty of hot water. Great value for money. The owner speaks broken English - you will get along, but basic Spanish always helps. There is a tour service in the hotel which lets you book your daily activities on the spot, which is also convenient (not that you will have ANY trouble booking tours, wherever you stay). Central location, walking distance from anyplace central - we liked it a lot.
- The breakfast costs extra. It's mediocre at best, the service is slow and they frequently forget to bring you one or more items. It took us two days to discover that orange juice was included in breakfast, and four to figure out that they can also make fancy-style eggs ("huevos rancheros", with hot sauce and bean soup.) They simply don't bother mentioning it at all.
Tip: courtyard rooms are *much* nicer and lighter than inside rooms, make sure and ask for one of those! Don't be put off by "there's no room." Sometimes, mysteriously, they make room.
My girlfriend and i were in this hotel. It's a great hotel- it costs like a dirty hostel and it is so much better! Clean bed sheets, toilet and shower. Great treatment !
The hotel is located in the middle of the main street of San Cristobal!
This hotel is really value for money!
If I will come back to San cristobal again, this would be my hotel, again!

Nice and clean rooms
Nice courtyard to chill and watch by-passers
The hotel is in a great location. The rooms are basic but clean however the staff left something to be desired in particular the resteraunt staff. We were served cold food and it took over 20mins to get the table wiped and served a cup of coffee. When we asked for eggs with ham we were presented with a plate of ham on its own after 30mins. We were never offered an apology - the worst service I have encountered in any resteraunt I have visited - completely uninterested staff. Recommended if you arent interested in having the complimentary breakfast and if thats the case you have many other options in San Cristobal. 4 star rooms but 1 star service.
Room was on patio area...cleaning people started banging buckets at 6 a.m. Staff and other guests noisy late at night. Stayed 3 nights and was more than ready to move on. Room was very cold and dark. Breakfast came with room, but would just go elsewhere. No real helpfulness ny staff. Only redeeming factor was its great location on walking street and close to square.
