“Central, good value”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

I recently stayed at this hotel for three nights over Easter. San Cristobal was packed, and a booking at an other hotel was cancelled at the last minute, but the owners of this hotel found a room for my friend and I at their sister hotel, and then moved us here the next day, which we really appreciated. The hotel is pretty inside - yes the rooms are quite simple (we were in the 'economical' section), but it is clean, quiet and with comfy beds, so all you need really. We did have a problem at check-out - I had left my wallet in the room, and when we realised and returned three hours later, it was gone. After speaking to a couple of staff it then turned up - all my cards were there, but the money had gone. I was quite upset, but I spoke to a member of staff in the sister hotel, and they couldn't have been more helpful - they asked me what happened, and got my bank details from me, and put the money into my bank account a couple of days later. I was really impressed with this service - it is common for money to go missing in hotels anywhere in the world, but you don't normally find a hotel which is prepared to check the security cameras and return your money to you to ensure that you don't have a ruined holiday. I would return to this hotel, or to this sister one, Hotel Catedral.

I have stayed here twice in the last month and each time for over a week.

If you are looking for the Marriott... go to the Marriott. If you are accustomed to staying in local hotels with their own flare - stay here. The price is very reasonable and the staff is very helpful/friendly.

The hotel has good facilities for small meetings (30 or so people).

They do have an underground garage if you are driving. Parking is sometimes a premium in San Cristobal so this is a good bonus.

The hotel is only about three blocks from the downtown park and is right across the street from a small tourist market. You are one block from a walking street which will take you all over the town. A trolly leaves frequently from in front of the hotel and if you are looking to make a quick tour of the town, this is a great option.

San Cristobal is a great place to get a touch of culture, good food, and explore what seems to be hundreds of coffee shops.

Room Tip: Top floor has less noise.

We planned to stay for only one night but ended up staying for 3 nights because it was just too good for the price to look for something else. We stayed in the 'economica' section, which meant there was no heater in the room. We were gone all day and it was warm enough when we went to bed - it only seemed to be a little cool in the mornings. The room had a private bathroom, plenty of hot water for showers, and clean sheets and towels every day. There is a beautiful garden in the hotel and its conveniently located a few blocks from the main square and across the street from one of the tourist goods markets. We paid 300 pesos a night, about half the price they advertised at the front desk.

Room Tip: We enjoyed our room in the 'economica' section - I think we were the only ones that stayed t...

Stayed here one night, arriving early one morning and leaving early the morning after, the hotel let us use the room from 8 or 9 am and were helpful at every turn.

I remember that the towels were pretty rough and the shower and bedroom weren't great but the grounds were nice.

The hotel is literally 5 minutes walk from the bus station one way and the town square the other. Perfect for our needs.

My tip if you are coming from Oaxaca is to get the overnight Platinum bus which was about $5 more than the standard but you get a wide comfortable seat and you wake up at about 6am coming through the mountains into San Cristobal. Stunning.

Nice colonial building with extensive garden. Rooms are basic and old fashioned, water for shower was minimal. Breakfast is extensive but very basic and scrambled eggs cold.
Good internet in lobby and restaurant and sometimes in the room. Staff at reception desk was not very helpful, did not speak english and reacted with " non comprendre " when a question for printing an e-ticket was asked. Restaurant is sober and not cosy.

We switched from a less expensive hotel to this one because they had a heater in the room which was a deal breaker! Pleasant stay - very friendly staff.
