“Great Value!”
Reviewed 31 January 2010

I was well taken care of at La Rotunda. The service was great. They called taxis, made good restaurant recommendations, and very graciously allowed me have a late check-out and then stored my bags for several hours. The hotel feels very secure, and they have safes for passports and valuables at no extra charge. The rooms are immaculately clean and lovely. I had a simple room with an insanely hard (my only complaint) king size bed. When I stayed there the hotel was virtually empty, so it was very quiet, but because of the layout of interior rooms around an open courtyard (very typical in Mexico), sound does carry and you can hear everything going on inside the hotel. Street noise however was minimal.

Hotel Rotonda is centrally located in GDL and has an exceptional staff willing to assist in whatever way possible to make the experience most inviting. The room was on the street side and had a small balcony. Bathrooms well equiped and spacious. I liked very much the comfort of the room and its cleanliness when I arrived. Daily service to prepare the room was completed without delay. I enjoyed the street view but if you are looking for quiet, perhaps another hotel would be best suited for you.

I have stayed at La Rotonda two times over the past year or two. It is very comfortable and well located downtown, but in a very busy area. The front desk is always ready to help and very friendly and professional. The lobby is really non existent, with a small sofa and a couple chairs. The rest of the pretty lobby is not very well used, sometimes for larger business groups and for a nice buffet breakfast (although not all mornings of the week).
The building is old and elegant, with small courtyards near the rooms as you proceed back past the dining/lobby area. Some of the courtyards have tables and chairs, nice and comfortable places to relax after the mayhem outside the front doors. The room was very pleasant and clean. Overall, the hotel is an excellenet bargain. I'm sure I will stay there again soon!

The location is great. Moved to another hotel due to noise from the lobby. First night it was at 1:30 AM in the morning the second at 11:30 PM in the evening.

  • Liked — The location.
  • Disliked — The noise and the old 2 hole type of outlets.

Spent five nights here last week and highly recommend. Good location, fair rates, and helpful staff. It's a well-run three star hotel with clean rooms and cable tv. We stayed in a streetside room with a balcony, and while a bit noisy, enjoyed the evening breezes. Ceiling fan was all that was needed. They have a restaurant on site and provide friendly service whether for a bucket of ice or a half-dozen limes.

You can spend a lot more at the Mendoza, but this is an excellent choice for the money.

My wife and I spent 3 nights at La Rotonda a couple of weeks ago. Overall it was a good experience.
This hotel is located two blocks from the Cathedral, right next to the Regional Museum; perfect for sightseeing. It is located in an old house that was a school, that was a convent, etc. The hotel actualy goes through the whole block, from one side to the other. It has many inner courtyards that are usually very quiet and clean. The rooms look out onto one of these many courtyards. As we found out, this can be a disadvantage as one guest in our courtyard either didn't know or didn't care about the laws of acoustics! Needless to say we had a bit of a sound-show one night.
The first courtyard is used for a daily breakfast buffet. This is not part of the room fee and we did not try it.
Our room was pretty plain. It had a desk, king-size bed, and tv. Nice updated bathroom and good sized closet.
The front desk staff was friendly and efficient. There is free parking in a garage 1-block away and safe-deposit type safes in the lobby. At $M640 we'd stay here again.
