My mother and I stayed in Hotel Colonial for one night recently on the way to another city in the state of Puebla. As many others have said, the location of this hotel is superb. It's less than a block from the Zócalo and close to many restaurants, churches, etc. Be sure also to visit the roof! There are stunning views in all directions.
As for the hotel itself, it was also great in many ways. The room was very clean and the view from the balcony beautiful. The hotel exuded the same colonial feel one experiences throughout Puebla. There are so many beautiful and interesting things to take in--the balcony on the hallway, beautiful tiles on the stairs and walls, old ceilings restored, and so much more. It seemed to tell the history of the city in its own way and was a pleasure to visit.
Lastly, we did eat breakfast at the restaurant. The food was OK, but not the best I've had. Definitely not bad if you're there and looking for something quick and easy.
All in all, I would definitely recommend Hotel Colonial and would gladly return.
