we were on our honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for a better place to start our journey.
the room was big and beautiful, the stuff of the hotel is welcoming and is there for your assistance day and night, the food is wonderful and last but not least the location is amazing you can see San Kristoval with all her glory, the hotel is right in the center.
reminded me of hotels in the largest cities in the world, i'm just waiting to get back there.

The rooms in this hotel are top quality - the best we encountered on our travels in Mexico. They are very spacious, furnished in a contemporary style with a super king size bed and a beautiful bathroom. And all spotlessly clean.

The reception staff were also very pleasant and helpful and could not be faulted.

My only criticism is of the restaurant. The food itself is fine but the service makes you very uncomfortable. We ate in the restaurant on our first evening and, for most of the time, we were the only people there. There were three staff working and, while we were eating, they all stood at attention round the room watching us eat. As soon as one of use finished eating, someone would rush over and whisk the plate away, leaving the other feeling even more awkward (but this seems to be what they do in Mexico).

At breakfast, the service was never great and the waiter insisted on hovering over your shoulder as you signed the bill, clearly so that he could see what sort of tip you were leaving. Most irritating!

But, overall, I would definitely stay here again. San Cristobal is a beautiful town and La Case Del Alma is a lovely hotel. But I'd avoid the restaurant.

We enjoyed our stay in the hotel, it was really nice rooms, and our terrace above the city was very nice!
The hotel has a comfortable garage and we could park our car and also asked the staff to clean it which was perfectly done.
We tried the breakfast as well, which was not part of the room price and we found it very nice, however closeby you have wonderful bakeries to try!

We chose this hotel despite it being more than $200 a night because we were tired after travelling for more than a month and decided we needed some luxury for a few days. And part of that tirednss came from having to always use our extremely poor spanish and, of course, a hotel priced at this level would be able to supply some respite, surely? No. We arrived and they had lost our booking and it took far too long for them to even give us a key to a room. The hotel was seemingly bereft of guests but no, two tired senior travellers had to wait in the lobby while they searched every drawer looking for a lost piece of paper. And, the big surprise? Breakfast was not included in the price - the only time it was not in our four weeks in Mexico! At $200+ dollars a night - you have to be kidding! It is a very comfortable hotel completely spectacularly decorated but lacking in warmth and competence. Save your money. There are lots of charming, less self-conscious hotels in gorgeous San Cristobal.

Very nice boutique hotel in San Cristobal de las Casas. The hotel is in a nicely renovated house, it is well located, walking distance from town's downtown. Rooms are very comfortable and tastefully decorated with local accessories. Bathroom is also very comfortable and has a very nice size. Service is very courteous and have an excellent and helpful attitude. Agree with comments from other guests, found service in the restaurant somewhat slow and while employees had a good attitude, seemed somewhat inexperienced.

My wife and I have just returned from a one week trip to Chiapas. The first three nights were spent at the Casa del Alma. We did not expect to find such a luxurious hotel in such a perfect location. The rooms are large, clean, comfortable, with designed with the traveler in mind. Comfortable beds, wide choice of pillow types, large flat-screen TV, and top quality bathroom facilities and bathroom supplies. The hotel location is perfect. Two blocks from the Zocalo makes it close to all the restaurants and attractions, but far enough away that the rooms are exceptionally quiet. The hotel is beautiful and the restaurant is attractive. Our only complaint was the very slow service in the restaurant. Breakfast, although good was agonizingly slow in coming even if we were the only customers. Nevertheless, we highly recommend Casa del Alma

Room Tip: We stayed in the Palenque room on the third floor. I think the third floor rooms away from the stre...

I have just stayed 4 nights with my family at this great hotel. Nice staff - not a lot of English speaking, but then I was forced to speak Spanish.
Rooms are huge, very clean and with a very nice bathroom.
Restaurant was really nice, a bit expensive compared to other places in town, but it is an upmarket hotel.
Hotel also features a spa and gym and secure parking underneath the hotel.
Will definitely recommend to everybody.
