“Great value for price ever !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Very nice hotel and what a great deal ! Charming hotel, colorfull, free parking, free wifi, well located, fridge, micro-waves, nice staff on the reception desk.
Not 5/5 because of the room number 10 :
- noisy (on the street and the windows doesn't close)
- not so secure (because of the broken window on the street and no security box)
- smell strange on the bedroom (maybe humidity?)

Room Tip: Not the room 10 !

This is a small hotel with quite a bit of charm. It had a nice cafe, friendly staff and an excellent location just three blocks from the zocola. Lots of restaurants nearby. It has a charming courtyard and very colorful decor. The rooms aren't fancy but for the money they are good value. We recommend this if you are looking for a good but inexpensive place to stay in downtown Puebla. We have also stayed at Hotel Santiago previously which was pretty good but noisy.

The room was spacious, clean and even had a refrigerator and microwave. The mattress was comfortable. It does have a funky smell in bathroom. And bathroom was in need of some attention - had crack in wall in shower stall and holes in tiles around faucets. Other than that it was a decent , good value hotel.

We stayed here for two nights and found it to be a pleasant hotel with helpful staff. Our room was clean, though had a faint smell. It included a small kitchenette and was pretty quiet. The inner courtyard is very bright and has nice couches. Wifi in the room was pretty fast, and our motorcycles were safely parked in a supervised lot. Parking was included in the price of the room.
The hotel location is perfect for exploring the historic centre of Puebla, and is close to many good restaurants offering local fare.

There are not many clean & comfortable $22/night rooms out there! But this is one of them.

Staff at check in/out were friendly (limited English).

Courtyard was pretty.

Rooms were clean and comfortable and included wifi, tv, fridge, microwave. Bathrooms did have a funky smell as noted by others but it was fine. Street noise was not a problem for us. We were in room 12 (balcony was nice) then room 8 (no external window).

Good location, short walk to the Zocolo.

Bus station is on the outskirts of downtown, secure taxi about 65 pesos.

Yeah, the hotel is quite old and not spotlessly clean. But its centric location, spacious rooms, private parking lot, even a "centro de negocios" with a sofa and a couple of computers, helpful staff and the price of 27 USD for a double room makes it a bargain!

The good: central location, great price, comfortable bed, free Internet.

The bad: Funky smell in the bathroom/room, ambient noise from street and other rooms, light streaming in from window to courtyard and room next door (yes, there was a window between the two rooms) and desk forgot my wake-up call.

Overall, it felt like a renovated boarding house rather than a proper hotel. Next time I would pay a few bucks more for a better hotel.
