Good place for the money. Excellent location in the historic downtown. Would definitely do it again! Posted 22-Jul-2010
For the price, the hotel was I had expected. It's over 100 yrs old, but it's been remodeled to add amenities like A/C, cable, phone, and an elevator. The best part is that everything worked! well, the hot water took a while to reach my shower, but then, in a 100+ degree weather, I don't think you'd be after hot water. Oh, free wi-fi is available at the lobby area. Staying at this hotel was a last minute thing. To avoid driving 2 hrs at night (big NO in Mexico) I got on my cell (through free wi-fi at a near park) at 5PM and made the reservation. I then went to a local restaurant-bar (Tucho's, 1 block from hotel) with awesome Yucatecan "botana", had a couple of drinks, enjoyed the live show, then went to the hotel. When I got there (6PM), they already had my reservation. I simply registered and went to my room. The staff was very friendly and nice. The only issue I had was the lack of parking. Granted, they're right smack downtown, with historic 100+ year old buildings all around them, so most likely nobody would let them tear down a surrouding building to have a parking lot (imagine the cost!). To deal with this limitation, they offer free parking at a lot about 1 block away, but only from 8PM to 8AM. You also need to be sure you don't need your car after hours because the lot closes at 11PM and there's NO way to get to your car until 7AM. I needed to leave at 5:30AM, so I ended up parking on the street, where you can leave your car after 9PM, but must move it before 7AM.
