Completed in 1942, the Colonial isn't really colonial but a good example of Moorish/Spanish revival. Very nice too! I had a spacious, comfortable room and everything worked fine. The restaurant downstairs is fine and since there's a shortage of good eateries in town, probably the best option. Not sure why the last review here was in 2017---maybe travellers don't stay in Manzanillo much. As a city it's no Veracruz but pleasant enough with busy shipping activity.

Chose the Colonial for our first visit to Manzanillo as we wanted to be in Centro to explore its Historic Centre touted by travelbymexico.com - did not find it very historic. The Colonial Hotel tiny lobby is basic. The addition of the elevator detracts from the talavera embellished walls and the lovely stairwell. The building street corner hosts an OXXO store with a high ceiling and nice woodwork on it (same as in the dining room). It was likely the lobby main entrance originally. Older style hotel lacking some of todays conveniences. Room with a double bed on the third floor was a OK size, the separate bathroom was poorly lighted and the shower never did provide hot water. The free Wi-Fi was a mix of slow & fast. There is no safe, TV with no English channels, air conditioning (it was good but not temperature controllable), a writing desk and one chair. There was two small bottles of water provided but no drink glasses. We stayed for two nights. On the second day we ate breakfast and dinner in the Hotel dining room Candiles. Good service and pricing. Our sea food dinner choices were excellent. Quiet, convenient and as good as we found for dining in Centro. Not the hotels problem but across the corner from the hotel is a Telcel outlet that on our first day was blaring the most obnoxious racket at high volume interspersed by one of the staff with an amplified microphone making even more noise. This went on all day. The corner appears to be a local meeting point and some noise carried on until late. If you think it would be a problem, request an inner courtyard room. Our second night was much quieter. If you wish to stay in Centro, the Colonia is a good option.

My review centers around this most wonderful soup made with crab,octopus,shrimp,clams & fish. Although the other dishes are probably very good this is the best soup of its kind in Manzanillo. This soup is a meal in itself. Worth the trip into downtown Manzanillo.

I was drawn by the beautiful old colonial architecture of the hotel in what was a disappointing trip to the town of Manzanillo, a drab place totally orientated to budget cruise ships disgorging hundreds of travellers buying loads of cheap trinkets ( made in China...). and sitting around drinking beer and eating ice cream, as there was nothing else to do. Dreadful. Hot, crowded, dirty, nothing to offer except this charming old hotel . We had lunch in the low key restaurant which was busy and to our surprise, was very good. I had red enchiladas which were authentic, my husband had the nachos which he said were prepared correctly. Service was friendly.

It's like stepping back in time . Eldest Senioras having a birthday cake and coffee, smiling and patting your arm as they leave . Wood and beam all around and colourful tile welcomes you . It's said it's original , from 1942 , clean and cute . Order the traditional Mexican breakfast , it will not disappoint . The coffee is nutty and fresh baked bread is served on every table . The sconce in the centre atrium area is original I am sure . This is a great way to start your day in Manzanillo .
