If you are going to Veracruz, MX stay here.

The new (nuevo) section is spotlessly clean, has a good view of the city and the hotel innkeepers where the best honest workers I've seen anywhere. Totally helpful even if the night guys speaks zero english. This is a great mexican run hotel.

I stayed in the 'old' section (no a/c) the last night there and it was still impeccably clean and romantic colonial style. No view in the old section (or much of a window) but who cares it's cheap, clean and honestly run. Plus you should be out getting drunkz0r at one of the bars in the Zocalo (main square) instead of sleeping.

Upstairs is a few public courtyards with a huge balcony that overlook the entire plaza. Get some beer to go and sit upstairs for the best view of the entire plaza.

There's public fountains w/bottled water in every hallway and the cleaning staff couldn't be better.

It's also 24hrs so you can check in anytime which came in handy for me since I arrived in Veracruz with absolutely no idea where I was going except for a blurb out of a lonely planet book to stay here.

Walk out the back door and you are in the main Zocalo surrounded by bars.

The hotel is all right, neither great nor terrible. What it has, is location. It is right in the middle of the traditional activity of the evening. An inside room is better because the party goes on all night.
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We had no problems or surprises. If you are going to Veracruz to enjoy the traditional activities there, this hotel is a fine base of operations.

Room Tip: Es mejor pedir habitaciones que no den hacia el zócalo porque la música no los dejará dormir.
