LOBBY, CLEANING PEOPLE THIS HOTEL HAS GONE DOWNHILL , THERE ARE NO EXTRAS WHAT SO EVER, TATTERED AND FRAYED CARPET AND BEDDING, ROOM GO UNPAINTED FOR MANY MANY YEARS. MANAGER LOOKS RIGHT THRU YOU, OFFERS NOTHING IN THE WAY OF SERVICE, FRONT DESK HAVE NO SENSE OF COSTOMER SERVICE, VERY UNFRIENDLY, I GUESS THEY WERE TRAINED BY THE MANAGER. I HAD A ROOM WITH A VIEW OF A WALL, COULD NOT SEE ANYTHING ELSE BUT A WALL, HAVE THE PICS AS PROOF. IF YOU NEED ANYTHING IN THE WAY OF SEVICE FORGET IT, DO NOT LET THE BEAUTIFUL LOBBY FOOL YOU.
Cleanliness, quiet Continental breakfast it's a joke.
The hotel staff was very nice. The room was clean and comfortable. I enjoyed my stay and would return.
Nice housecleaning staff, good location for see museums, churches and centuries old buildings along streets. Also good for pottery and weavings shopping. Pleasant inside patio with small pool, filled with cold water. Very noisy location, lots of loud traffic, ear plugs a necessity for sleeping. Seemed overpriced in comparison with Hotel Colonial down the street, which is on a pedestrians-only plaza. ``Deluxe'' room was small and dark; we switched to a so-called suite, which was larger, higher ceiling, but noisier and cost nearly 50 per cent more than the room we had originally been put in. No rooms with microwaves or suite type refrigerators.
Reasonable hotel at a very good location close to the historic centre/ zocalo in Puebla. The atmosphere at the hotel is friendly. I experienced it as a good and safe place to stay, important for a woman travelling alone. The service at the restaurante was a bit slow, seemed to be to busy during breakfast hours. I got the impression that the employees at the reastaurant did their best, but were to few to handle big groups
The location - one and a half short blocks from the main plaza (Zocalo) Almost everything.The reception service was unfriendly, almost rude. Then they wanted to put us in a very ugly room that had a door-window facing the pool. After we complained they put us in another room that was better, but the shower was very small and the floor was very dirty (and when I say dirty, I mean that when we walked without our socks on our feet would get black with dirt). In fact, in the 3 nights we stayed, the floor remained dirty. Then, the receptionist told us that they had supposedly undercharged us because they had not taken into account the tax, which was 17%. The price tag became much higher (about 100 USD a night) which is grossly overpriced for that hotel -we have stayed in much better hotels in Mexico for half of that
Location near the zocalo the online booking was not honored by the hotel. No breakfast included as clearly stated in the on line site and the rate for 3 nights was more than the on line offer. The elevator was not working. No restaurant operating. dining room set up but no activity.
Downtown Puebla is real nice so since this hotel is there, that's such a good thing. Maybe the bathroom a little
We stayed in the Porfiriano Suite. The view was nice and the room was very large and decorated in the era of Porfirio Diaz. The staff was helpful and the breakfast was good.
The hotel is awesome! The architecture, furniture, everything of the hotel was incredibly beautiful. I never take pictures of my hotel room, this time we did. Frescos, paintings, deco furniture all very enjoyable and very nice t live in for a while. Go and see, it is difficult to explain.Of course, do not expect jacuzzi bath or things like that, it is not the kind of place for that. You must be the kind of person to enjoy a very particular place. Nonetheless, we had free wi-fi, an immense retroflection TV set in the room (together with a very old valves radio set, of course not working). Location was excellent in front of the Rectorate and 200 m form the Zocalo. We had to wait for a while before hot water reaches the bath and the shower was not perfection, but this is not what I will remember of the hotel (I will remember the pluses). No lift (for those who need one, not a problem for us), given the structure of the building.
Clean. Centrally located. Loved the staff! This hotel was originally designed for students who would be studying language in Mexico, as I understand it. But word got out! Exterior is colonial and small, but once inside, the hotel is modern and classy! Since the hotel was designed for students who walked to class nearby, parking is a chore. There are several parking structures within blocks, but one has to learn their hours, etc. We took our chances and parked in the street two out of our three nights.
It was very clean and convenient and the price was reasonable compared to other hotels in the area. It felt safe. The beds were very comfortable and the linens and towels were nice I think they may have overcharged me but not positive, have to go back and calculate.
