“Good place especially if you drive a car!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2011

I stayed here just because we were in need of parking for our car, and we could not have been luckier! They were not full and we got a very good rate plus we did need to use our car since taxis are more easy to move around and not really expensive.
The room we got was on the ground floor at the very end of the hall, for us, not a problem at all, it was very quiet and the daylight hard to see so we could stay even until 10 am or later without even notice!
We had a room with a king size bed, nice flat TV (not that it was a big issue but appreciate it), a heater, living room area, very speacios and bathroom with all amenities including hair dryer.
It took a little bite of time to get hot water but once it came, it was not problem after that.
Actually it looks like they have reamodeling the rooms so it was not really bad at all, it was very comfortable.
Once I tried to use the hair dryer and it takes the power out of the room, call front desk and somebody from maintenance came right after and fix the problem, which was a breaker.
Every time I need or call for either extra pillows or a problem with hot water I receive a prompt response.
The location is just one block from the Cathedral, so it was very centric and we enjoy walking around, not very used to the cold weather, well, at least for us, but we enjoy it.
I will recommend and it and definetely come back again.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are very good and nice.

We arrived expecting at least a clean room, but instead we were assigned to a room with a missing bulb and no drawers. Amenities such as shampoo or soap are not included, even the towels were missing.
Also, there is a pool but you can't use it unless the swimming lessons are over.
Food is served cold and the only thing good at breakfast was the coffee.
Not worth the money.

This hotel was definitely not the best. The rooms are small, the service can be surly and the food is very plain. The bathrooms are not very clean, the Internet works only in the foyer and the restaurants are unreliable. The location however is handy to the area.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2006

Originally wanted to book 3 nights at this hotel, but due to non availabilty we only could get 2 nights. Stayed the first night at Hacienda Don Juan and after we checked in at Hotel Catedral we suffered through one night and then went back to Don Juans place.
This hotel is discribed and advertised as San Cristobals first and only 5 star hotel, but i am sure they gave those stars to themselves, on an international level this would not even rate as a 2 star hotel. The people were not very friendly, even though we spoke spanish.
The accommodations were very worn and felt dirty, especially the bathroom and shower.
The restaurant was.... well nothing really, there wasn't anybody eating there and it lookes as though it was not operating, the pool was dirty and needed maintenance.
The TV remote was fixed to the night stand like they were scared somebody would steal it. Our room was on the lobby floor, a window leading into the corridor, no daylight and very noisy.
All in all a truly awful place, don't bother there is plenty of other choices that looked much better and if you are willing to take a cab into downtown, stay at Hacienda Don Juan.
