My husband and I stayed in the hotel for 16 nights. We found the hotel clean and comfortable and all staff were friendly and courteous at all times. The room was large and had adequate space and bathroom facilities. We used the swimming pool which was cleaned and checked each morning. The hotel was quiet as we were staying outside... More

Strongly recommend this hotel - excellent value. We paid about 70 odd american dollars for a good room overlooking the Zocalo - in the absolute center of town. The vibe in Veracruz on a Saturday night is very fun and the hotel is in the middle of it. Very safe location, people are warm, friendly and hospitable. One of the... More

Great location. Nice service. Traditional though modern. This hotel is a great base to discover the charming city Of Veracruz. On the Zocalo while still offering a swimming pool, this hôtel offers nice big rooms with all modern comfort as well as free wifi connexion Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Be sure to have a view on the zocalo and if you can choose your room because some are very gloomy but what we got eventually was very nice, bright, jacuzzi in the tub, view on zocalo, etc ... for the same price as the less desirable rooms. Pool also has a view on the zocalo and they give you... More

We stayed at Gran Diligencias one night because we were meeting other friends there before taking a bus to another part of the state for a wedding. The hotel was located on the zocalo, which was the perfect spot for great food and great shopping with all the artisans nearby. It is also a short walk from the shipyard and... More

I was very pleased with my stay at this hotel. I loved the location--right on the zocalo. The breakfast buffet was great. There is a small but nice swimming pool on the mezzanine level, and many other amenities. It's only a short walk to the malecon, to see the ships and the port. There is live entertainment at the bar... More

“There is music at night so if you go to bed early, choose back room. Rooms in front look right down on the plaza where all the action is.”

“No preference for a room, but still would suggest on the side not at the front overlooking the zocalo.”
 of 5 bubbles ClassicStrider, 11 Jul 2016 | Read review
“Views of the Zocalo will be most desirable but probably also a bit noisier during the day. Evenings are quiet regardless”
