Hotel Casa Mexicana
Reviewed 20 March 2012

Fantastic location is the main attraction.
The property itself is quite nice and our room (Master Suite) was very nice. The Master Suite is in the section of the building across the road from the main building/reception.
Only minor problem with the room is that whilst you have a seperate sitting area, there is only 1 television. That television is setup to be watched from the bed so you cant sit on the couch and watch TV.

Staff speak very little English but are eager to help and are friendly.

Breakfast is a hit and miss affair depending on if a tour group is having breakfast. On one morning the tour group had eaten earlier and so the buffet was essentially empty and wasnt replenished. The staff still offerred the buffet even though it was empty ... we went ala carte instead.
With so many restaurants nearby we didnt eat anything other than breakfast at the proprty.

Room Tip: Request a room in the section of the property across the road from the main building/reception.

Based upon their advertising and our research, we were expecting a more upscale hotel experience. The room was clean but rather small and crowded. Bed was comfortable, but loaded with so many blankets and pillows that they had to be thrown on the floor making the space even more crowded. Bath and shower o.k., but small. Great downtown location close to the plaza and market...a must experience. Pretty court yards and gardens.

Charming small colonial hotel near Santa Domingo Cathedral. Loved the architecture; room adequate size, charming artwork and great beds. Room looked out to the courtyard that is surrounded by all rooms. The bedding is very heavy on top of you. Sheet, blanket, quilt in duvet; but wonderful on cold nights. Parking for car is not on site but just a block away and secure in public lot with sites set aside for hotel. Overall, pleasant.

Our visit began with a sweet welcome at the airport by dear Armando who welcomed us and drove us to the hotel where we had the first of many delicious healthy meals. The staff was helpful and friendly. The accommodations comfortable and clean. In a central location, we walked all over this lovely old city from the hotel. It was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend the hotel and the restaurant.

I stayed in Hotel Casa Mexiana for a weekend last November and I have to give it my best recommendation. Clean and comfortable rooms, great artwork everywhere and heating (which is neccesary in November becouse it can get really cold!).
I especially love the artwork which gives the place a really good feeling.
The staff is friendly and the restaurant has good food and great athmosphere. There is a garden in the middle of the hotel with big plants, very nice to sit there enjoying your food.
The hotel is situated near the center so its easy to reach the major touristic places.

Attractive building in a great location. The public areas are lovely and very atmospheric. There is a nice bar and restaurant. The rooms are not large but very comfortable with good beds. The hotel was in a quiet spot but just a couple of moments from the pedestrianised centre. This is certainly a place worth visiting.

We stayed at the Casa Mexicana for 3 days which was a birthday present for me from my wife. What a great present! The hotel was beautiful with attractive rooms and good beds to get a good night sleep after many hours of twisty roads in a bus... very welcome! The bathroom was clean and the hot water was hot. The hotel has gardens covered by a glass atrium roof so you stay dry once there during the downpours that happen in Chiapas this time of year. The service was friendly and helpful with anything we asked. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to San Cristobal de las Casas.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Hotel Casa Mexicana is located in the beautiful mountainous and colonial city of San Cristóbal. It is centrally located within walking distance of many historical sites. We offer you all the amenities, comforts and personal services of a fine hotel, relax in the interior sky-lit garden, enjoying the original mexican art treasures assambled here. The guest rooms all open into the gardens or private courtyards. We built the Hotel Casa Mexicana with the idea of offering our guests a little bit more than just a hotel, our goal was to create a space filled with art, folk - art and the presence of nature, which would be very Mexican. We invited our artist friends, who had been to San Cristobal beforehand, to create artistic pieces which speak about it. And we searched in all Mexico for the very special and beautiful pieces of folk - art which we display here, too. We are very satisfied with what we have realized so far and everyday we put out all our energy to still become better and have you feel relaxed here and enjoying the hotel. ... more   less
