Casa Elvira
Ranked #25 of 63 Zihuatanejo B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 November 2012

I have stayed in this hotel several times, and I say it´s one of the most nice ones in zihuatanejo. It is simple but the family who runs it are realy, realy REALY nice. It´s simply perfect for the ones who dosen´t need the luxury stuff.

We spotted Casa Elvira from the balcony of another hotel room we were viewing and decided to take a better look. We were shown to a cosy room with en-suite bathroom and decided we would stay the night!

We ended up staying 5 days at Casa Elvira and enjoyed every moment of it. The room was cleaned daily and new towels supplied. There was small balcony, communal kitchen and fridge which we used for simple breakfasts and snacks.

The owners were friendly and the price very reasonable. There is no hot water, but even at the coolest time of year, Zihuatanejo temperatures make a cool shower very pleasant! Casa Elvira is a little gem hiding just two streets from the beach - we would definitely return!

Great location in town, close to the market and various restaurants. The room was bright and clean (on the second floor). There is a common room on the ground with a kitchen, fully equipped with drinking water, fridge, stove top and cooking utensils.

Management was very friendly. For the price, it was an amazing stay.

Room Tip: upstairs are brighter.

i stayed here for two nights. its a really really nice place, very small, very cute. the rooms are comfortable, its a block from the ocean and its probably one of the cheapest hotels in town. the owners live on site and are really nice. they provide a small kitchen for general use and drinking water. there is no hot water in the showers and no wi-fi yet.

for the price, the location and how nice it is, you probably will not find a nicer place in all of mexico!

I loved staying in this traditional guesthome while in Zihua. It was safe, and comfortable and the owner is a delight. The morning birds would wake me up each day and the locale is in the heart of town.
First we stayed in a room with a two big beds and a shared bath, just fine!
After we returned, we stayed in the "pink honeymoon suite"
Super lovley little room, with a balcony and private bathroom.
I loved it here.
Not American at all, just perfect.

This family-owned establishment is in an excellent location at an excellent price. Situated right on the malecón, it's close to all of the action and the beach. Wander across the sidewalk in the early morning hours to watch the fishermen bring in their catch to sell or you can bring a towel and sunblock to roast the day away. It's also a few feet from the military naval base, so it felt very safe. The owners are very warm and welcoming and live on-site. They also operate the fancy seafood restaurant out back.

There was no A/C, but a fan was provided that got the job done. Rooms were large, neat, and clean. Some rooms have a bathroom, but I stayed in one with a shared bath two doors down. It looked rather old and worn, but was clean with "cool" water. As hot as the daily temperatures were, the coolness was welcome.

The only drawback was the noise. The really quiet times were 1am - 6am. If you like to go to bed early or are a light sleeper, this is not the place for you. Because this location is the center of much activity, there are noises from local establishments, i.e. bars and restaurants, the street, and neighbors. Still, if you want to be in the midst of traditional Mexican life, Casa Elvira gives it to you straight, no chaser.
