“Best in Town”
Reviewed 28 November 2009

Although Trip Advisor misspells its name and mis-categorizes it (what IS "Specialty Lodging"?), this HOTEL, Posada la Casona de Cortes, is by far the best place to stay in central Tlaxcala (and you do want to stay in the center of this beautiful town).
Recently opened, in a turn-of-last-century mansion, the hotel is small - 19 rooms - varying from a luxurious suite (encompassing the living areas of the old house) to a quite modest room where I stayed (for $40US/night).
I escaped the large Hotel Posada San Francisco after three noisy nights (pool-related construction) and chanced upon this godsend (their website is a work in progress but email to Stefan, the English speaking manager: [--] and phone [--].
It is located two blocks from the zocalo, on a quiet dead-end street (next door to the police barracks, lest you have security concerns; its trumpeter will serenade you to sleep and awake in the morning; he has better and worse days).
There is a very reasonably priced restaurant (breakfast and pasta dishes especially so), a bar (with typical bar propensities) all surrounding a lovely garden with indoor and outdoor drinking and dining.
There is wi-fi in the rooms (unlike the San Francisco) - and problems with it were immediately remedied - on a Sunday!
The mansions' owners are in residence, and their English speaking son, Abel, and Stefan see to it that every need is met.
Tlaxcala itself is the real draw here: an undiscovered gem, all tidied up for UNESCO WHS approval, but without it yet (so few foreign tourists). It is an easy, luxury bus ride (1 1/2 hours) directly from the Mexico City airport.
Go while it is still unspoiled! (And stay at the Posada la Casona de Cortes.)
