If I could have known it would have been like this I would have stayed up the street at POSADA TOLOSA HOTEL, but no this one was cheaper, it was hella dirty and the lazy front desk old ladie in the front on Facebook or playing games instead of giving their attention to the customers , they should at least have some scene and keep the place clean .. Never again on my trip will I even consider staying here agin

The location was centric right near the plaza. They even managed to have free parking for guests in front of the hotel.

The room was nice and fairly new. Since there was no air-conditioning, we decided to open the window to get fresh air. However it turned out to be a BIG mistake!

Our room's window was facing a side alley which I think it was connected to a market. It rained a bit right before it got dark. The rain decided to whipped up this funky smell that I still "savored" these days - it's like opening a fridge which has not been touched in years.

We were traveling with a group of friends. They didn't have the smell problem because their rooms faced different directions.

In the afternoon we took the teleferic to Cerro de la Buffa. Took a photo with Pancho Villa's monument which made a nice souvenir.

Unfortunately we didn't make it to the disco inside the mine at night. I would imagine it's must be very cool (& literally in terms of temperature, too).

But we did join the tour in the morning to explore the mine. It was a delightful tour.

We dined at the hotel restaurant. The food left much to desire...

Room Tip: Get the rooms that face away from side alley!

My wife and I stayed there one night only. One night too many. If you go, DON'T pay with your credit card!!!!!!! We did, and three weeks later we are still trying too get our money back. They have a scam where they say something is wrong with their machine. They refuse to issue a credit and until they do, we're out the money. Many people we spoke to said it's been going on for awhile. A much better value in Maire Bonita just down the hill. Rooms are much better for 100 pesos less. Staff is great and they have six computers in the lobby available 24/7. I hope this helps.

This hotel is perfectly located in the historical center of Zacatecas. We parked our car and walked everywhere.
The hotel is adequate, rooms are ok, as are bathrooms.....generally, nothing to complain about.....clean and comfortable, if not luxurious. Our room had a nice view of La Bufa, the fortress area where Pancho Villa's army had a big victory in 1914 over Mexican forces.
Parking for us was simple...there are some spaces right in front of the hotel, reserved for guests....no charge, and our car stayed for 2 nights without problem. I do not know if they have a separate, enclosed parking which can handle more than 3 or 4 cars.
The reception people were friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant on-site, but we did not eat there. There are many restaurants in the area, from basic Mexican to quite nice places featuring international food.
Zacatecas is hilly, bring your walking shoes. It is also quite cool, even in summer. Interior Mexico can be quite different weather-wise from the beach areas, especially if altitude is involved, as in Zacatecas.
I recommend a half day tour which can be found on the street in front of the church...there are at least two companies located there, easily recognized by their tram/cable car type vehicles. We took a tour to the Eden Mine and La Bufa fortress. The mine is quite interesting, well-lit, and not difficult at all for 90% of its visitors. The fortress is accessed by teleferico, (a cable car made in Switzerland). There are a few other stops as well. Not all tour tmes offer an English speaking guide.

We got a room here after the new year for 450 pesos a night, which is a pretty good deal for the area. The rooms were nice with great views, hot water in the shower, complementary bottled water, soaps, etc. and a TV. It was a great value, affordable, GREAT location, and just what we needed. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well. I highly recommend this hotel.

My girlfriend and I stayed 3 nights in this hotel during our visit to Zacatecas, and from the minute we entered the lobby we were impressed with the cleanliness and overall just how nice the hotel was for the price. The room was excellent with a great bed, bathroom, TV, and a view of la Bufa out our window. There's an elevator too. Not a five star hotel, but one of the cleanest and nicest budget hotels I've stayed in in Mexico. Excellent location as well, makes this a good choice for a hotel in Zacatecas.
