“Reasonably good hotel, great location, great breakfasts”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We stayed at this boutique hotel in early January 2014, and enjoyed it.

On the down side: The rooms were very sparse - no decorations, just white walls - but clean and warm (a consideration at night). There are late night discos nearby, and so it was quite noisy until late at night (we stayed on a weekend; could be different during the week).

The plus side: The inner courtyard is beautiful, as is the breakfast area in the main lobby. The food was fantastic; breakfasts were superb. The location is also wonderful; just a few steps from the wonderful pyramid, with great views of the city from the small rooftop patio and pool. Staff very nice and helpful.

If you want to spend time around Puebla, but want to avoid hustle and bustle of the biggish city, you cannot beat Cholula as a place to stay. And if you want to stay in Cholula, you cannot beat Estrella de Belem. It is an absolutely perfect charming little place, in a quiet street right next to pretty much everything Cholula has to offer (from the main plaza, to the main pyramid). Wonderful décor, very comfortable rooms (a few have a separate sitting and a sofa-bed area upstairs - great if you travel with kids age 6 or 7 and up), perfect service, excellent breakfast (though, perhaps, I would add some more options and rotate them over time a bit for longer stays), a stunning view from the rooftop swimming pool area... Great for kids and family, great for romantic getaways. A wonderful place I keep coming back to.

Room Tip: If you have a kid (aged 6 or 7 and up) get a room with an upstairs sitting area and sofa-bed. The ki...

We chose this hotel through the internet , and were delighted with the choice . Our room was spacious with beautiful antique furniture , wonderful high ceilings , super bathroom with monogramed towels , and all the accessories one could need. The bed was super comfy with very fine sheets . I found the internet to work just fine . We arrived a little late and the chef who was about to stop work for the day was kind enough to make us a wonderful soup and sandwich. We had breakfast up on the terrace overlooking Cholula . The breakfast which is included has some delicious and out of the ordinary choices . We loved everything about this hotel . All the staff were extremely kind and helpful . We walked from the hotel all over Cholula easily . Hopefully we will have a chance to come back one day !

Room Tip: Our room was right by the inside patio . I didn't notice that it was quite dark , but it served...

This hotel was recommended to me by a colleague who lives in Cholula. At first I was a little hestitant because I normally travel for business at the larger chain hotels but all the reviews were right. This place is a special treasure! As the other reviews mention the breakfast was excellent and the location is central to the Cholula historic district and one block from the pyramid. Also it's just a quick $100 pesco taxi ride to Puebla. My favorite part of the entire 5 day stay was the service. Waldo the evening manager went out of his way to ensure we had a great experience and that everything we asked for was taken care of without hestitation. The service and commitment of the staff at this B&B really makes you feel like your happiness is important to them.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room with double queen beds which was excellent however I would recommend you choos...

This place is a treasure! From the moment we entered through the old wooden door to the sound of a fountain and calming music to the time we left 4 days later, we felt at home. The rooms are beautiful - very typical tile floors, stone walls and lovely solid furniture. It's all in the details - large towels, decent linens and nice products in the bath, complimentary treats each day, a fantastic breakfast with a variety of choices and a great location in Cholula. We were able to walk to everything in town and Puebla is a short drive away. The rooftop deck gives you the most incredible view of the whole town. Internet access was ok - not super fast but good enough. Who needs high speed when the idea is to slow down and enjoy...
The very best thing about staying here was the staff. Everyone was so kind, helpful and informative. From restaurant suggestions to accommodating requests, everyone was absolutely fantastic.

Without a doubt one of the finest places I've ever stayed at ANYWHERE! On my arrival I was given a warm welcome by Roberto, the assistant manager. The rooms are arranged around a small, open garden. My room was tastefully decorated, had a king sized bed and there was even a loft with a writing desk and sleeper sofa. Bed linens are first class. Bathroom is huge and appointed with thick towels and terry robes. Breakfast is spectacular and included in the price. Estrella is just a few blocks from the zocalo and within walking distance to many interesting sights. I highly recommend this place!
