  • 8.0.Very good

    El hotel es hermoso con una excelente ubicación! Tiene un restaurante muy bueno, las habilitaciones son amplias y muy cómodas. Solo no lo recomendaría para personas de sueño muy ligero ya que por la misma excelente ubicación se escucha la música de los bares cercanos de la zona centro y en fines de semana es hasta muy tarde! Fuera de eso 100% recomendado

    Noisiest Hotel Ever!

    This is one of the wort places I have ever stayed in a long life of travel. The reason? A nightclub spend up RIGHT NEXT DOOR and they BLAST music all night long . As I write this it is now 3:12 a.m. with no signs that they will stop . I am sorry about this because the hotel is not at fault. Their business will be destroyed by this and they (probably) don't deserve it, but you cannot expect people to spend sleepless nights. Oh, and just how loud is the music? I have high quality earplugs in and I tried sandwiching my head between two pillows . No good. It seems to almost shake the building.

    Very rustic. One step above camping. Dangerous steps to the bedroom, bath on first level. Fun for kids, but not for seniors. On the plus side, the in room coffee was good.

    This is a revamped historic mansion, oozing charm. But not for Seniors. The best rooms are two-story suites with the bedroom on a balcony and the only bathroom downstairs. For people who get up during the night, a steep wooden stairway is not appealing. Our other gripe with the hotel is that it isn't part of today's electronic world. There was only one outlet in our room, an impossible situation for today's cell carrying, iPad /laptop generation. No where to plug everything in. We've seen other historic hotels in Mexico upgrade and deal with this problem with a simple installed outlet "strip" on each side of the room, multiplying the outlet possibilities to accommodate every need. Otherwise, the hotel is lovely, central, filled with plants, immaculate and has the best breakfast restaurant in town, with an amazing menu. We stayed four days and never ran out of interesting breakfasts. Seems like the whole town eats there. The staff was great. If you book at Meson, plan on a smaller room on one floor. Not very exciting but certainly better than the Holiday Inn Express next door.

    Old Hacienda Style

    Personnel is extremely helpful: Before my arrival there was a traffic incident and the police was deviating the traffic one block behind the hotel entrance, on that deviation I noticed that we were at the hotel's parking area and asked a person that was opening the door for help, he let me park inside after I explained that I had a reservation and took all my luggage with him in a street with a pronounced slope uphill. The welcome was warm and check-in fast, the hotel has a couple of garden areas which invite you to relax. The rooms are old hacienda style, with very high ceilings, very quiet, the beds are comfortable and clean. Inside the rooms there is a second level all made of wood which adds charm to it. The hotel has HD TV and WIFI access on every room. The hotel has one of the best restaurants in town and has an excellent location close to the government offices and downtown. I wish my stay was longer but I had to continue my trip and thanked the personnel on my way out. Definitely I will go back to this hotel on the future.
