We stayed here two nights on our way down to Palenque. We had never been to Campeche and looked forward to seeing it. The hotel was not difficult to find with the mapquest directions I had. As mentioned the one ways are a bit confusing, but with a map and directions, not impossible.
We booked a junior suite and had a lovely colonial room on the corner facing the sea. It had windows on both sides of the corner and afforded a small but lovely view of the malecon and the sea on one side, and the street scene on the other. There were floor to ceiling shutters on the windows, and on the sea side, a small balcony. We did not have any problem with street noise, and on both nights we were there, there were Christmas events going on in the Historic Center and lots of people and traffic.
We had a king size bed, that while hard, had good linens and pillows. The bath was modern with a walk in shower with glass walls. The room had cable tv but no refrigerator, etc. The hotel does not have a bar, if you want a drink go across the street to the little restaurant and the gregarious owner will take care of you. Will even let you take his glasses and bottles with you as long as you bring them back.
Check in was easy, parking is just down the block and is secure and free. There is a small pool but we did not use it. Breakfast was available, but we chose to go back toward the Merida highway to the strip of restaurants on the gulf that serve seafood. OH MY. We went both mornings, unbelievable. Not all of them serve breakfast, but some do and it was to die for. Fresh shrimp cocktail anyone??? Fresh shrimp omelets???
Highly recommend for the price point and location.
