“clean, nice, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2013

we stayed 4 nights in a room with private bathroom. The place was clean, well lit and ventilated. We hired tours to montebello lakes, palenque, yaxchilán and bonampak. all of them were good.
Breakfast was good, and even when our tours begun early in the morning, they gave us breakfast the night before. That is real kind.
location is also excellent, just one block from real de guadalupe strip.
I could not think of a better place to stay in San Cristobal.

Room Tip: try to get a room in the second location, just half block away. It's more quiet.

With so many choices in a town like San Cristobal, Le Gite del Sol was very decent for the price. It is cheap, so don't expect luxury. The rooms are a bit rundown, but only in details that are not really that important (like the floor or the curtains). The main things were there: it was clean, not humid (like so many other older buildings in San Cris), functional, with hot water, wi-fi worked well, a good location (one block from the pedestrian-only Guadalupe street), it is quiet at night, the breakfast choices are decent considering they are free, and Dennis (the owner from Quebec) is a good host who worries about his guests. He helped us out a lot with travel info, as you can either buy shuttle or bus tickets at the fare price (no extra costs).

If you want a well-priced no-frills place that works, with a couple decent spots to read (terrace or patio), and where you can rest, head here. If you are looking for a colonial or romantic spot, then you need to spend more money and go somewhere else.

We arrived at Le Gite del Sol early in the morning from the bus and were told we could have a room at noon. (Try checking in before noon in the US) We wandered around San Cristobal, had breakfast and returned to find our rooms ready. The rooms are very basic but the hosts (owners) make up for this by being at your beck and call at all hours of the day. It also only cost $19 US for a room with hot water, wifi and breakfast too. Who can complain about that? Of course if noise is an issue I wouldn't stay here as there is plenty given you are in the heart of the city. Despite the noise we managed to sleep but were grateful for the extra blankets. Denny (owner) took care of all our tour bookings and even our bus tickets. We stayed 3 nights and would stay again in a minute. Breakfast was incredible. Not just a breakfast they decide on but one you decide from 4 different choices. Well run and absolutely a good find.

Room Tip: Depends on what one wants but there are even rooms with shared baths for less. No where in the downt...

We stayed here for four nights. We stayed in the hostal part of the hotel. The owners were very helpful and helped us arrange our tours etc and book bus tickets that fitted into our plans. The rooms were very basic - with bunk beds and a table. It does get cold but blankets are provided. The showers were great and very hot and at no point did we have to queue for them. We also had access to the kitchen and wifi and breakfast was included - where you had a choice of various options. The biggest advantage of course is the price! Overall we really enjoyed our stay!

This hostel is in the heart of San Crisobal and this is the best place if you want to be close to the colourful houses of the old town or to see the chatedrals, churches etc. This hotel offers you a possibility to book your tour in the hotel or book even your bus ticket. So everything went easy here, we arrived, got out room, booked our tour for the next day (at 7 pm in the afternoon), and we knew, we would have a breakfast. Then we could take a rest - the rooms are really comfortable - and go to eat something. The owners of the hotel are really nice and funny they helped in everything. We wanted to stay just one night but ended up at 2. We liked the atmosphere of the city and the hotel too. You can leave your luggage there till 5 pm after checking out. The breakfast was the best we got in Mexiko in a hotel! The only tiny thing to mention is, I would have been frozen during the nights if we did not have sleeping bags with us.

We recently stayed at Le Gite and were delighted with the service. We had clean accommodations at a very attractive price, a nice included breakfast and very convenient booking of tours and buses. The staff were wonderfully accommodating and friendly.

Its so nice to find a good place that is not overpriced! This Gite is a Gem in San Cristobal. It is clean, comfortable and with very friendly staff. The location is great as well being just a few minutes walk from town. We really enjoyed our stay and could park our vehicle securely just down the road which is a real bonus for us! The breakfast was good as well. A real breakfast with some choice. We were amazed it was included in the price. The only improvement would be some better bread with breakfast instead of the 'bimbo' bread!
