You are just steps away from one of San Cristobal's active pedestrian streets full of shops and restaurants. The street frequently has its own entertainment, dancers, musicians and jugglers. A block away from the main square, yet you find yourself in a cozy, quiet environment when you are ready to sleep. Maybe a little too cozy for some. Our room...

This place was quite a terrible experience. There was no heating so it was freezing cold (I had to sleep fully dressed in a hoody). Instead of normal windows they for some odd reason had used none-transparent bathroom windows making it feel like being in a cell. The pillows was like concrete and there was three rusty screws pointing up...

Enjoyed our stay at Hotel San Martin. We thought it was in a great location, right on one of the walking street. Walked out into numerous restaurants and shops. It was clean and had helpful staff. If I was to mention a negative it would be our room was freezing (not much to be done about that), the reception does...

It's a nice environment and deliciously located in downtown with plenty of places where one can have a good meal or just go out for a coffee. By the way, it's one of the cheapest around and I recommend it for couples and groups of young tourists.

It is a fine room given what you pay for. The location is excellent : right on the real de Guadalupe street and right next to the Zocalo, and yet the hotel is still quiet. However the quality of the room is far from excellent and not very new. I guess you get what you pay for...

This hotel is located right on the main walking street of San Cristobal and handy to everything. It is clean and tidy with a pleasant reception and courtyard area. We walked in thinking that it would be well over our backpacker budget and happily surprised to discover it was only 350 pesos (about $25US). We could not find anything else...

We took a nice hotel for the first night because it was late in the evening. We walked and looked and checked many the next day. Most of them were nice and affordable but none of the others would give us a weekly price break on 2 rooms. It is comfortable, nice hot water anytime, with a nice inner courtyard...

Staying at this hotel put me in a bad mood every day, starting with when I would walk into my bathroom only to encounter a cold shower. While the Front Desk assured me that "some" rooms have hot water, mine, on the third floor, did not. On a positive note, the area that this hotel is located in is incredible:...

I came to Hotel San Cristobal needing some peace and quiet but without being cut off, which was exactly what I got here. The best location in the centre of town if you want to wander around night or day. Very good value - 350 Mexican Pesos (about £17) a night for a clean and comfortable room with a large...

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our tour. The hotel was clean and reasonably comfortable. The rooms was a little small but the bathroom, including the shower was nice and big. They do provide free wireless and have 2 Internet connected PC's downstairs. The breakfast was ok but with so many cafe's around it was not something...

“They have 3 floors some rooms have 3 beds. Away from the front entrance will be a little more quiet if you go to bed early. The floor is stone and makes noise when people walk in.”
