We used to live in Puebla and watched this hotel as it was renovated. It's a nice place that is very clean and is well renovated. The rooms are clean and modern and nothing is run down. The hotel is only about 3 years old. When we visit Puebla we stay here because of its proximity to the zocolo and because there is good lighting in the room (even though the natural lighting is not that great ) since we are frequently working when we visit. We love the rooftop bar --there's a beautiful view of the cathedral.
For those of you who are disappointed...you have to remember that this is Mexico. There are many other hotels, but most also have annoying little things that are wrong too. So, yes, the wifi is not strong in all the rooms, but we found if you sit in one of the chairs in the hallways (toward the front of the hotel) the signal is stronger and it works.
Personally, I think the building is beautiful and I love the fact that there is no built up grunge or dust in the rooms. I toured many hotels in Puebla looking for places for friends or relatives to stay and I personally think this is the best for the price and location. The zocolo is where its at in Puebla and this is just a lovely few steps away.
One sad thing is that none of the windows open. Those beautiful streetside windows do not open!!! Most other rooms lack an outside window, but many downtown hotels in old buidings have the same problem.
If your Spanish is good and the hotel is empty you might try bargaining on the price of the rooms. Many downtown hotels will bargain (some will not budge though) with walk-in guests.
