Stylish central atrium, a bit like a riad style. Large room, with two double beds, quite a dark room, overlooking the central atrium. Free wifi. Shower pretty much a trickle. Fairly quiet. There is a small restaurant area for breakfast which has the usual mexican breakfast menu, perfectly adequate.

Two and a half short blocks from Cathedral, main square ("parque"), central kiosk, tourist corridor.. A "normal" small-town hotel. Spacious rooms, king-size bed, plenty of electrical contacts, lights, and places to lay out suitcases. Rooms on ground floor and around the central atrium may be a little noisy if there are tour groups. Didn't get to use the pool (surprising... More

Dreadful experience. On bookings they say they are a 5 star hotel with pool and poolside bar etc. When you arrive they are only 4 star. We were checking in when a big tour group arrived so the reception tried to push me aside. I had to force them to finish checking me in. Our room was dusty, not good... More

This hotel is beautiful. The rooms are cozy, they are spacious and even the bathroom with its brightly colored tiles is a party to be in. The beds are lovely and the breakfast is good. Close to the hotel is a great restaurant named 'La Paloma', the food is very good!!!! We would come here again in our next trip

I stayed here just because we were in need of parking for our car, and we could not have been luckier! They were not full and we got a very good rate plus we did need to use our car since taxis are more easy to move around and not really expensive. The room we got was on the ground... More

We arrived expecting at least a clean room, but instead we were assigned to a room with a missing bulb and no drawers. Amenities such as shampoo or soap are not included, even the towels were missing. Also, there is a pool but you can't use it unless the swimming lessons are over. Food is served cold and the only...

This hotel was definitely not the best. The rooms are small, the service can be surly and the food is very plain. The bathrooms are not very clean, the Internet works only in the foyer and the restaurants are unreliable. The location however is handy to the area.

Originally wanted to book 3 nights at this hotel, but due to non availabilty we only could get 2 nights. Stayed the first night at Hacienda Don Juan and after we checked in at Hotel Catedral we suffered through one night and then went back to Don Juans place.
