Not fresh not okay!!! Buffet 70 pesos. We did not want to eat the main course and we left. They wanted us to pay 60 for a soup and a salat buffet that was the worst I have ever had! I would strongly advice people NOT to go there!

A rather quirky place, with the huge walkways, from which the rooms led off from. The rooms were large, comfortable bed, clean ensuites. Where we were it was quiet at night, others said it was noisy with other quests walking past. Best part was the location, up an arcade that led directly to the Zocalo, cafes etc. Breakfast was included,...

You could not ask for a better location to visit the Historic Centre of Puebla. Unfortunately the hotel, which has so much potential did not live up to expectations. Our room was tiny, the sheets though clean were ripped and the continental breakfast which was included was dreadful.

This hotel is in a great location up an arcade off the main square. It is in a quirky, interesting building, with an inside / outside feel. We had a large room with two double beds. A room with no windows (other than into the internal square) but very quiet; which seems preferable to a noisy room with a view...

The first time, I stayed at this hotel on the very first day it opened. The price was good and its position, right in the passageway that leads to the main square, araused my curiosity. Now I just went back again, but I think that was the last time. First of all, because there are a bunch of new hotels...

It's a nice hotel, very clean, it's location is perfect to walk around the churches, zocalo, and "el centro". Unfortunately our room was at the front and we couldn't sleep at all, it was extremely noisy. The room and bathroom are ridiculously small, not comfortable at all! Sorry but we won't stay there again.

My mother and I stayed at Hotel La Alhondiga for two nights in November 2013. The hotel was not what I expected.

The hotel is in a good location, in the center of the town. It took some time to find the hotel though because it was within a shopping hall. The room is clean with a pretty tiny bathroom. Staff there are nice and helpful. Overall, it was not a bad choice for the price.

“If you value your sleep, don't stay at this hotel. If you don't care about noise and can sleep through anything, even a freight train, then definitely stay here.”
  • Bathroom - small, but serves its purpose
  • Door to bathroom. Not elderly or handicap friendly.
  • Standard size bed room. Very gloomy, small, and noisy.
