This was our first experience of a Mexican hotel after leaving the commercial anonymity of Cancun. It was a real relief to find a historic and characterful hotel, with very comfortable rooms, good service and a very good restaurant area (the best guacamole dip we had in Mexico!), all this in a central location in the historic and picturesque town...

they anounce one price and when you contact them they give you a higher price and it doesn't even offer what their anouncement said. the anounce is quite tricky; it makes one feel he will get that price includying breakfast. But it is neither the price and if you want breakfast you are asked to pay in addition.

My brother and I ate her on a trip in October 2010, so when visited Valladolid with 11 people in our family we knew we had to eat her again. The food is amazing! Delicious with very good presentation. The service was also great, and there was a Mayan woman hand making tortillas that was fun for us to watch....

The location is great, and the bed was very comfortable, one of the best hotel beds we've ever had. But the room was quite small. The room safe did not lock, so that was annoying. The bathroom was also very small, although we did at least have a tub shower (i.e. bigger than some modern shower-only compartments.) There was no...

Dear guest, Thank you very much for you comment we appreciate it.

Visited as part of our honeymoon in September 2016. Bedroom was simple and basic but nice and clean, and bottled water replenished each day. Courtyard restaurant was lovely – great food and a pretty setting, and the breakfasts each day were top notch! Staff were helpful and the pool area had the bar right next to it. The hotel is...

This hotel had super friendly employees, very accommodating and helpful. Rooms were clean, bed was good, cable tv and decent bathroom. The Colonial ambiance was lovely. Price was good! It was amazingly quiet for being right downtown in a typical Mexican city. Monitored parking space, clean pool and pretty landscaping. Access to banks and shopping right on the plaza---good attached...

Nice looking hotel in the historic centre of the city. The rooms were ok and breakfast was nice. It may be because we are from Europe, we felt the hotel grounds were nice but not amazing. The staff were helpful and friendly enough. We ate in the restaurant one evening, the food was quite expensive for the dishes we received....

The mansion is beautiful with an internal typical Mexican patio and the wooden carved windows. Very authentic. The rooms and beds are quite good except that the A/C is very noisy and the toilet... well... doesn't really always flush. The staff is quite helpful. We globally enjoyed our stay. The restaurant is very good.

Nice, clean, decent-sized room with large, modern bathroom. Great location near the town square. Large, clean pool with poolside bar. Friendly, helpful staff, inside-the-courtyard parking, and a great restaurant. Highly recommended.
