“You may like it, i did not.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

I had posted a review earlier and then had to delete it because i started getting harassed so now i edited it and reposting.

I will keep this very brief,

On my next visit to Tampico I will not stay at posada de tampico.

For the rate you are going to pay, you can pick another hotel such as Hampton inn (a bit more expenssive) which is next to the airport or you can pick city express (cheaper) which is fairly close to posada inn.

Why I would not stay again at this hotel? Posada de tampico is big and some might like it but I did not enjoy my stay.

1) The rooms are old / not fresh. Maybe they have new rooms but we did not get them.
2) Mattress is not comfy
3) The room had bad plumbing, broken toilet that would not flush unless you open and play around in the water tank.
4) Room service takes ages, I waited just under an hour and it was not a bussy day.

Why i recomend going to Cityexpress:

1) It will cost you less
2) It is a newer hotel (basic and clean not a luxury hotel).
3) Friendly staff
4) No restaurant in hotel but they offer the continental breakfast buffet..
5) It is located in a small plaza with very good restaurants, coffe shop, boutiques, bank, salon, apple bees etc
6) Cinema across the boulevard


Why i recomend going to Hampton inn:

1) Very close to airport
2) VERY comfy beds and rooms.. flat scree tv etc
3) right outside the hotel you will find an italian restaurant that is extremly good !

Posade de tampico is OK but you will find better that is all i can say

Stayed there May 2, 2003. Nice Hotel, nothing exceptional, but nice.
Has ample parking, and is outside of the central part of town.
Excellent buffet breakfast. Can walk across to small mall and cine, or next door to great ice cream place. Take a taxi to the center of town.

I have lived in Tampico since 1996 and have stayed in the hotel myself twice before finding a house. I also have arranged stays for my supervisors and for several groups from the States over the years. I've never had anything but glowing remarks about it. Its a really handsome place that features a central courtyard/garden with a beautiful swimming pool too. Its also the closest hotel to the airport.
Convenient to the hotel are many restaurants (American fast food and some delicious local restaurants not to mention the hotel's own superb restaurant. Try their breakfast buffet!) as well as Sam's Club, Wal-Mart Supercenter, and a great movie theater. It is located on the Avenida Hidalgo about midway between downtown Tampico and the Industrial Corridor of the port in Altamira.
