This was my first visit to the historical city of Querétaro. I was an invited guest of the Mexican Poster Biennial. The guests were put up in this hotel for 4 nights. It is in easy walking distance to the cultural center, and a 15-minute straight walk to the conference center, and a 5-10 minute walk to the historic center. A large, lovely park is across the street.
The rooms were a medium size with king-size beds (I was a single). My view faced the back of the hotel which had a soccer field. On Friday, November 2 (Day of Dead), the field was transformed into a full concert stage (workers worked all night to build the stage, and the following night after the rock concert, to break it down). Needless to say I had could both see (from my window) and hear the concert, which did not break up until 2:00 a.m. It was a holiday, what can you do? My friends who had rooms in the front of the hotel did not hear the music if their windows were closed. I would still recommend the back of the hotel as there is a busy intersection in the front of the hotel.
All our meals (breakfast and lunch) were taken at the hotel. Breakfast was an excellent buffet of all foods a Mexican would eat for breakfast, plus what a European would eat for breakfast. Service was excellent and professional. Lunch, served from 2:00-4:00 p.m. was a 4-course meal (this is the largest meal of the day), starting with a small creative salad of some kind (chicken salad, avocado salad, etc. Then there was soup (all good), then the entree (fish, chicken or veggie), then dessert. Prices were quite reasonable for the quality of the food.
The staff spoke mostly Spanish, but there was always a staff person available who spoke English. There were 3 computers in the lobby for guests to use. I would absolutely stay there again!
