I've been staying at Posada La Mariquinta for years. Every time I go to my hometown, I stay there. Jean-Luc and his staff are excellent hosts, the place is very well located, the rooms at the back are quiet, like I like. The inn is downtown within walking distance of the cultural center, great restaurants, parks, important sites. The prices are excellent too, with a graduated rate, the longer you stay the cheaper it is. We've stayed there from 3 weeks to just one night, it is our home away from home.

Lastly, I LOVE TRIP ADVISOR, it has never failed me. No matter if I travel to Europe, Canada, Mexico or US, I won't stay in a place if not recommended by trip Advisor.

We found the Mariquinta a good refuge from the traffic and noise of the city. Xalapa's motorists seem particularly fond of using their horns. The location of the posada is good; just a few blocks from key sites of interest to the visitor. A couple of cautions: If you're paying in cash (worth a 10% discount on your bill), make sure you pay upon arrival. The receptionist may not say anything about dinero when you check in. If you wait to pay, the discount is null and void. Also, be aware that the hotel charges extra for use of their wireless internet signal: 30 pesos per day. We were dismayed that it wasn't included in the price. Our room was large, had a deck in the back, and the bathroom was one of the nicest I've seen in mid-range accommodations. The furnishings, however, were rather spartan: nothing to adorn the walls, and furniture that resembled a college dormitory's. There was no cookware/plates/silverware in the kitchen. We did have a fridge but turned it off for all the noise it made. Overall, we'd recommend the Mariquinta, but not to those who are expecting the "hand-holding" that a B&B or full-service hotel would provide.

We stayed in La Posada for 7 days while attending a conference at a nearby more expensive hotel. We were very satisfied and would stay again but could see some problems for other guests with different needs.
1) From the center of town one has to ascend several blocks on an extremely steep street. The mini-suite we were given was also up several smallish flights of stairs. These passed through a beautiful garden but this would be small consolation for the mobility impaired.
2) Our stay had been preceded by a very rainy period, the office/lounge smelled strongly of mildew. Our room, which was one of the highest in the hotel, was fine, but if it had smelled like the office I could not have stayed--I wonder about the smell in some of the lower down rooms.
3) Possibly because we did not read the fine print we were expecting breakfast--there was none. However, there were a number of very close, very inexpensive cafes serving excellent breakfasts. The Posada does have a kitchen, which guests are invited to use which supplies unlimited coffee (the best we've had in Mexico) and a coffee machine for guests to use. There is also tea.
4) The hosts were not in evidence, or at least did not identify themselves as such if they were. The serving staff .maid and porter were very pleasant and helpful .but we conversed with them entirely in Spanish and someone who did not speak the language might have had difficulty making wants known. The manager (not the owner) was likewise very pleasant but did not offer help or suggestions unless asked--I do not remember if she ever spoke to us in English. Admittedly we were there in the off season and things might be different at the peak. However, Xalapa is not a heavily touristed place and is not bursting with English speakers and English information for those who do not know locals and do not speak functional Spanish.

The gardens and artwork make this a delightful retreat. It is extremely clean and well-kept. There is a discount for multiple nights, a deposit is required with the reservation, and the balance due upon arrival (cash only). Very helpful staff who respect the privacy of the guests.

We recently stayed at La Mariquinta and from the reviews we expected great hospitality. Unfortunately the owner did not receive us and his staff was not very helpful or welcoming. Although the room was comfortable, except for a full-size bed that was small for both of us, the parking is very complicated and a hassle. The hotel itself is in the middle of the city, so a great location if it weren't for the bad smog and the real difficulty with luggage and parking.
