My room was tiny, dominated by a bed that could sleep three (don't get any ideas!) and covered by a zebra stripe bedspread. With the purple wall behind it the décor suggested a man cave, 1980's style (bring your own Iron Maiden). But there was something, compelling, cute and cozy about this room and in the evenings it was always a welcome place to retreat to, watch TV in Spanish and kick back and relax. It is a very old building and there are odours coming from the bathroom drain, such as are often inevitable in Mexico. There is a transom window over the door that admits bright light from the courtyard and fortunately the staff (sometimes when reminded) remember to turn the lights off before midnight. Only one staff member refused to do it, the only one who seemed to have an attitude problem. Fortunately my Spanish is good and I was able to persuade him to turn the lights off on pain of saying something on Tripadvisor!
The staff are kind, friendly and helpful and obviously care about their guests wellbeing and comfort. This is a great budget option and I heartily recommend El Hotelito, Puebla.
