Maria de la Luz Hotel
Ranked #12 of 15 Hotels in Valladolid
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Excellent Access to town and surrounding attractions. Loved the rooms, the courtyard, the great feeling like you are almost in the plaza feeling. The food was excellent and meaty. We always had a parking space, though when I left for the day I wondered if I would find one when I returned. Internet was patchy.

Room Tip: The wifi was patchy, and worked better for me outside on the second floor on the balcony than it did...

Thought I would finally write the review I have been meaning to! After a day of experience the splendour of EkBalam, we continued to Valladolid to find a hotel! Location sometimes isn't the only quality that can make a hotel great and in this case it didn't! Although I will say the restaurant wasn't bad (not great though) and the pool area seemed OK (we didn't use the pool) but the rooms were a horror show! They smelled musty, the bathrooms were questionable on cleanliness and the beds - oh I can't say enough about the beds! The pillow was a cross between marbles & walnut shells! HOrrible - I may have got more sleep if I had slept in the car! And for the price of a Mexican hotel - it was worse than horrible! I would never recommend this hotel to anyone or anything!

Room Tip: Tip for finding a good room in this case would be another hotel!

Location was awesome! We had a room overlooking the square as well as a balcony to watch the daily activity in the park. The pool is lovely as is the general atmosphere and surroundings. Breakfast and lunch were very good and other than a few misunderstandings (by both parties) the staff was friendly. Only complaint was no hot water when we went to take a shower and no seating or chaise chairs near pool. Room was clean and spacious. Perhaps a bit outdated, but we kind of like/expect that from this genre of hotels.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room overlooking the park.

Although this hotel rates itself as a 4 star, it is really a 3 star at most. If you just need location, accessibility, and the basics, then this is the hotel for you. The pool is a nice amenity and there is a beautiful view of the cathedral from the top floor. It's a little noisy, and could definitely use some updating on the interiors, bed linens and pillows, and AC units. However, great for a limited stay.

We had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. We found the staff to be very friendly, our waiter in the evening Juan was absolutely wonderful.

The food in the restaurant was excellent and very reasonably priced for what was provided. The tenderloin steak was excellent as was the chicken breast in orange juice. We asked for baked potatoes on the side which they happily accommodated us. Buffet breakfast had several different kinds of eggs, juice, pancakes, tortillas, beans and fresh fruit.

Only one negative, the beds in our room were too soft. I had bit of a back ache in the morning. However this was a welcomed change compared to a sleepless night before on a rock hard bed. Something in between would be fantastic.

We found everything in the hotel to be very clean.

Room Tip: Stay at the back of the hotel. The front street is noisy.

I have staid in Valladolid several times and always at the Maria de la Luz. The location on the square and near the bus station is perfect, the rooms are clean and the beds comfortable, and the ones at the rear are quiet, plenty of hot water, the staff not particularly friendly but helpful enough, the food in the restaurant quite good and economical (though I found the breakfast (sometimes) included in the room rate pretty awful). The hotel meets basic travel needs quite nicely, which is all I require.

Room Tip: Prefer rooms on the 2nd floor, at the back.

We stayed in Maria De La Luz Hotel one night while visiting Valladolid for the near by cenotes and ruins. The staff is friendly and helpful, the location is great(if you dont mind the noise of the downtown traffic), the view of the plaza and church at night are awesome, the food in the restaurant is good and reasonably priced. Located on the central plaza the hotel can be a little noisy (but the town shuts down at 10pm). The building is old and needs a little TLC but the bathroom was newly remodeled and very nice. The bed was uncomfortable. We enjoyed our stay at Maria De La Luz but when we return to Valladolid we will probably look for a hotel that is a block or two off the central plaza. Having a pool to cool off in after a day of exploring ruins was very nice. Roosters living in the hotel was not so nice (if you want to sleep in).

Room Tip: Our room faced the street on the central plaza. If you are a light sleeper ask for on of the rooms i...
