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...

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...

The highlight of our two days in downtown Manzanillo. Beautiful old Spanish style hotel. Friendly staff, decent food. Loved the old doors and architecture of the building and rooms. Old world feel. My only complaint would be the beds felt very old and uncomfortable.

We arrived at main Coach station in new port area. Grabbed a taxi to old town for mex$ 70 and arrived at Emperador Hotel (an option) which seemed very closed. We knew Colonial was nearby so taxi dropped us off (with no hike in price) to this magnificent establishment. The best in the whole town it turned out! On entering...

Stayed two nights. Well located for centre of Manzanillo but not a tourist destination! There with work. Cheap but fairly basic with tv remote issued on arrival and room checked before you leave. Adjoining Candles restaurant and Oxxo store handy. No hot water on arrival but promptly sorted. Two beds, one soft, one harder. Good aircon which is needed. Some...

Very nice location downtown. An older hotel that looks great. Friendly staff. It is for being downtown...not on the beach. Reasonable price. Parking. Sunday nights the locals get together on the Zocalo to listen to each other sing.

This hotel is a very unique and located just off the waterfront area on the main street in town. The lobby area is a step back in time. The stairs going up to the rooms have a beautiful stained class window on each floor. There is also a restaurant just to the back of the lobby. You can eat a...

This 80 year old colonial-style hotel boasts high ceilings, wide hallways, tile floors, AC, rooms with balconies, proximity to the zocalo, and good prices. All are true, plus their restaurant is really top notch. Excellent breakfast, Superb lunch. Friendly staff. It is really the only good restaurant in the town. There is one quite good sidewalk restaurant, The Chantilly, which...

Stayed three nights over new year, and found the hotel to be adequate for our needs. Air conditioning worked well, and the bed was comfortable, although we would have preferred a king size which the hotel does not have. Housekeeping standards were not the highest - bathroom could have used more attention (hair on the floor, etc). Bathroom was old,...
