The stuff doesn't speak English at all, including the reception guys. An hotel must have someone that speaks English in such location where lots of travelers goes by. It was pretty hard to communicate. In addition, the shower is horrible! The hot water suddenly turns to cold and vice versa. In total it was ok because all we needed is... More

Driving around I found this place after I got out running from a hotel I had booked online (which was horrible full of insects). Plaza Magnolias is at a great location next to all sort of restaurants, and coffee shops. The price was very affordable and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom is a little small but has all the... More

Good basic hotel. Very good price per night, clean rooms & decent breakfast. Staff is friednly. Rooms are stuffed with beds & furniture making it very hard to move anywhere in them. WiFi is included but reuires that you log-in an share the hotel on facebook everytime u use it, quite annoying after a while.

I want to say that we had an amazing stay which seemed like it could have been, but wasn't! We were booked into the mustiest smelling room, not just once, but twice for we had to stay here again throughout the week and being New Year's, they were fully booked!! The rooms on the bottom floor just past the restaurant... More

This was a last minute reservation, and it worked fine. It is walking distance from everything and has parking (which we needed). We called the room "the dungeon" because they are very dark... But other than that nothing negative to say, the service is good. We only had breakfast there but wasn´t the best.

My mother told me once: "If you don't have anything good to say, better say nothing". But there is one good thing about the hotel and that is the location. You can reach the places of interest very easy in less than 5 minutes without any transportation. The rooms are very dark, the ceiling is covered with wood which smells... More

We were in San Cristobal for a few days. The city was ridiculously packed. There were very few hotels with rooms. We came across this place after leaving a hotel which we had a bad experience with. This place is phenomenal! It has colonial style arquitecture and just an overwhelming warm feeling to it with all the wood. The morning... More

Hotel is nice, location is perfect but they could do much more. Rooms are very dark with no lights coming in, staff is not very flexible, not recommended the restaurant. Overall clean, well furnished and good enough for few days in san cristobal.

Nothing special, rooms are clean and spacious with simple decorations, and location is optimal for visiting the city. The breakfast is disappointing as it is advertised as American but all that is served are fried eggs, fruit salad (watermelon, papaya, yellow melon), cornflakes, yogurt (sweetened only), toasted bread, industrial marmalade and coffee....could be improved!

Got a Jr suite with a fireplace and glad we did. There is no free breakfast, the icon on trip advisor is wrong. King bed was soft and comfy. Room was on 3rd floor and had a mountain view which is hard to find near the zocalo. Walking distance to outdoor markets, night life, museums, and churches. Overall, happy with... More
