“Saved us, traveled fried and seriously needed a respite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

Had a LONG days drive through N Mexico, and we were quite tired, fatigued, ready to quarrel, were using non-standard English, hungry and sick of being in a car.

We made it outside of Zacatecas, hoped to find a hotel outside the city as we were ready to camp in a cow field at this point, but all the cow fields were fenced in, so into the crazy traffic Z we went.

At rush hour on a Friday.

Was not a happy set up - at all.

Got funneled into the madness of Z and found ourselves helplessly caught like rats in the road system, terrified and having way too many close encounters of the collision style, we spotted the City Express sign, and ditched off the hellish highway (pulling a camper trailer, BTW) and soon pulled into CEexpress's parking lot

Truth to be told, the lobby could have been filled with a Bandito motorcycle club reunion and Dracula transvestite convention, it would matter not, we were getting a room.

As soon as I approached the door a well appointed gentleman opened the door, the lobby was full of light and cheer, the desk were attentive, the rates were great, $52. $ 645 Mexico peso, the staff nearly rushed outside to help us unload, our room was perfect, small, perhaps, but remember $52, we are so happy to have stumbled here, I believe we will stay here for several more days.
And,tho,as we have been here for all of six hours, they evidentially provide a transport service to the Centro, which sounds great to me, cause we have no more interest in driving our 12 passenger one ton van anywhere in Z but out of here.

Hope to use that tomorrow, as we ARE NOT fireing up our van until leaving.

Three cheers for City Express, as far as Sue and I already concerned.

Room Tip: I hit the pool button by mistake, I don't think it has a pool l

The City Express Hotel in Zacatecas is a 15-20 minute taxi ride from the La Calera Airport at a cost of about 300 Pesos (12 GBP). The hotel advertised a shuttle bus and whilst I tried to arrange that to pick me up when I booked on the internet I did not see it on my arrival so took a taxi. This 6 storey hotel has nothing of interest near it and is in a quiet open highway area and there was a little traffic noise in those rooms that face the road. The reception was efficient although, as expected, some staff had limited English. The room was similar to Travelodge UK type rooms. There was a walk in shower which was nice, a TV that had quite a lot of English movie and sports programs but no English news. The bed may be a little hard for some but I found it reasonably comfortable. There was no free coffee or tea in the room but there was 2 bottles of free water. In the lobby there is a small restaurant with a limited menu but reasonable food and they deliver to the room as well. Breakfast was included and was OK with a few Mexican dishes, some fruit, some pastry, bread and cereals. As usual in USA and Mexican hotels there were drink and snack dispenser machines on every level. I requested a late check out for 3pm and that was given at no extra charge. I took the free hotel shuttle back to the airport but that is not available after 5pm.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the road. There is a little traffic noise in some rooms

This is a basic hotel with no frills but everything you need for a comfortable stay.

The rooms are small, but contain all the necessities. The beds are comfortable but not plush.

Breakfast was good.

The hotel is not close to the centre of town, but they run a shuttle service.

Overall ... value for money if you're on the road,

With the road improvements from the US border now Zacatecas is a viabel one day drive for expats heading to the Guadalahara area, located on the north side with easy access on hwy 45 near the new convention centre. Really clean attractive rooms good breakfast included and a Pemex next door ideal for a stop over.

Room Tip: I think all rooms here are of equal quality

right on the main highway through Zacatecas its impossible to miss, the staff were very friendly and very affordable rates! the sound in the rooms was very low considering its next to a highway. The room service was very prompt and the food was excellent as was the free breakfast.

Room Tip: rooms farther from the road will be quieter. and rooms on the lower floors will have less draft from...
