stayed here many time over several years and last time was my very last time. The place gets no attention and is falling apart. Need tlc. Even asking for the more expensive newer section, room was not nice and the whole hotel is not good any longer...time for a change

During my stay at this hotel there was a youth soccer league also staying there. This was not good. The kids were very loud, running around the hallway, jumping off of the hot tub into the pool, etc. We had an inside room. It was extremely small with one window in the bathroom facing other bathrooms. It was located near the malecon, but quite the walk away from the beach where you would want to lounge. The pool was nice on the rooftop. This hotel is a decent place to sleep

This hotel is located near Malecon in Veracruz.

The lobby looks "nice", the restaurant is nice decorated and they cook well.

The room is one of the worst I have ever stayed. The bed totally unconfortable, when you enter the bathroom you have this unpleasant sensation of saying "is this clean enough so I can take a bath here?".

I can't say you to think twice if you want to pass a night at this hotel, I only can tell you "Forget about it".

I stayed here after a LONG drive from Colorado to Veracruz in our Subaru. We had a shoestring budget and I went with my husband and our friend Yukiko, a college friend from Shikoku Japan. I did not go in 2003 I went in 2000 but could not find that year. Anyway, she (Yukiko) did not speak any Spanish, and we translated for her. Since we were on a tight budget we had to stay at an inexpensive hotel with good parking. This was it.

It was basic but clean and had a little balcony that let in the sea air. We knew Veracruz is not a tourist destination. It is mostly the Mexican navy's important port and the gulf waters are warm but murky and can't compare in any way with the Caribbean's sparkling turquoise beaches like in Cancun, or in Culebra, Fajardo Puerto Rico for example. What is super attractive about Veracruz are its people!! If you speak Spanish, they are warm, open, funny, hard working, social and just beautiful! I love the jarochos with all my heart.

I did not hang around this hotel room all day. I was sightseeing. But the owners were Spaniards who were extremely friendly and so were the staff. Yukiko loved the fresh flowers and the ice cream parlors near the malecon. The marimba bands and the dancing on Tuesdays or Thursdays were a hit. May I also say finding excellent seafood dishes were a breeze and the jarochos always serve the meals with either white little loaves of bread or tortillas. I liked the cheap, clean rooms and the friendly locals. Remember to visit the naval museum and speak to the Museum guides in Spanish about Mexican Naval history. Veracruz is not a tourist mecca. It is really about the Mexicans themselves. I liked the Agustin Lara museum too. The plaza is pretty. The people of this city are SOOOO simpatico! Los quiero de gratis.

The low price wasn't worth the stay. Yucky mattress with pillows stuffed with foam chunks. Nice location though too bad Gulf water's heavily polluted. Had slow, poor service in hotel's restaurant the time I went. Pool on roof seemed nice. Look around for other hotels unless you don't mind what I considered a "travel motel".
