“Beautifully rustic”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We stayed up top in the Master Suite and were very pleased with everything. The room service was quick and delicious, the Jacuzzi tub was very relaxing, and the rose petals that they used to decorate the room with was a wonderful touch. A great location for a romantic stay! It is just around the block from the "Andador"(pedestrian only street) that has so much to do. The hotel was always clean and the staff very helpful and professional.

we stayed for 4 nights at the special room at the top - absolutely gorgeous, clean and comfortable. the common areas are always impeccable with flowers, everything very beautiful. good location, not in the middle of noise, but walking distance of everything.

I wish I could have stayed for more days. Hotel Casavieja is a charming, beautifully landscaped historic building located in the the very center of San Cristobal. Within a few blocks from the center and just a block from the popular, trendy pedestrian street.. The rooms were large, beautifully appointed, very clean and quiet. I would ask for one on the second floor. A very good breakfast can be had in restaurant across the street. The staff were very helpful with tours and advice. San Cristobal was well worth the trip.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor and on the quietest street. The hotel sits between 2 streets

We had a room which was on the ground floor so a bit dark but the hotel itself is delightful....small courtyards with fountains and plants. Our bathroom was shower and toilet only with basin at the side of the bedroom ....basic but functional. The restaurant is over the road and the breakfast is fantastic and the staff were lovely. We also ate there on one the evening and despite being the only people there we had a lovely meal. My biggest problem was that our heater in the room didn't work and having told them on our first morning, it had not been changed when we returned and then I spent nearly 2 hours getting a replacement so was freezing by the time it was sorted (it gets freezing here in November!).

Room Tip: Don't stay on the ground floor as the rooms are dark.

I just spent a night at Casavieja and loved it. We were warmly greeted when we arrived even though it was only 10AM. Our room was very well appointed with small nice touches and lots of light. The bath area was good size and the shower was excellent! The current listed price was 1400 pesos for one or two. The restaurant and free parking are now across the street. In the restaurant we had a very nice breakfast with unlimited cups of great coffee, nice serving of fruit, toast, jam, tortillas, eggs al gusto for about 65 pesos. Very good service. Later we also had coffee and soup - try the sopa de pan - a local specialty and very good and one of their great desserts. Everyone at the hotel really seemed to care that we were comfortable and contented. The location is very good because just a block away is the walking part of the street Guadalupe where there are many coffee shops, restaurants, bars, and a great wine store. Yet the street of the hotel is very quiet. For something different try going right of the hotel to the next street, turn right again and go one and a half blocks. There is a terrific cheese store there - check out the aged cheese, the wonderful cheese from Ocosingo and their homemade yougurts. Only open from 9-3.
Had a good wifi connection in our room.

Room Tip: some rooms have more space and smaller bath areas - see a couple and pick what works best or you.

we found a good deal in this hotel:
- warm as a posada
- tipical furnitures and original building
- nice rooms
- good price for the quality of the service&amenties
- very good location
- private parking for our car
- far away from Best Western, holiday inn and commercial spots (which we don't like)
- helpful management (they even helped me to repair my broken trousers!)

Only point which could maybe be considered "unconfortable": the restaurant just opposite side of the road. But this way no smell and no confusion in the hotel building and I think waling 10m to get to the restaurant is not that uneasy...

casavieja: we loved u.

First time in magical San Cristobal de las Casas, and this Hotel was perfect, comfortable with kind and attentive staff, beautiful surroundings and courtyards, highly recommendable.

Room Tip: the rooms looking into the courtyard are of course quieter but all are charming
