“Unpleasant evening spent at Hotel Zaci”
Reviewed 5 May 2013

We ended up at Hotel Zaci after not having a reservation when arriving in Valladolid (on top of being exhausted and just ready to take a nap). This hotel was recommended by a local shop owner who suggested it was a nice hotel. We arrived here, found that it was a reasonable price, and settled. Joe and I are generally not particular, but this hotel was not the type of place we wanted to stay. After checking into our room, we realized that all of the lights in the room gave off a strange orange light (as well as the orange window). We paid extra for the air conditioner because we felt like we might not get enough cross breeze without it, but it was a rickety old thing that made crazy noises and didn't allow much sleep. The bed was uncomfortable, and we had a terrible nights rest. We could wait to check out! Try Hotel Colonial Aurora up the road (in the same price range and much nicer).

Stayed April 2013, travelled as a couple

My two young daughters and I had a great time at Hotel Zaci. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the location cannot be beat. It is just four blocks from the main plaza so you are right in the middle of the city but not on the busiest streets. A bodega right next store has all the food items you might want and there are restaurants and taquerias all around the hotel. We got our money's worth in the pool, for sure. We were in a downstairs room right next to the fountain. Plenty of hot water and the AC worked great. Do yourself a favor, and make a left out of the hotel, go up two blocks and enjoy the quieter plaza. I recommend Casa del Cafe, the small eatery with great sandwiches at the Plaza Candelaria.

I liked Hotel Zaci very much. I was amazed how nice it was (based on what they charge)! I made my reservation online numerous weeks ahead of time. I was a little nervous about it, only because it seemed so cheap to me. But all my fears melted away when I saw the pretty lobby, my very nice & spacious room, and the beautiful & clean pool they have! The location could not be better... a half block from the bus station and less than a 5-minute walk to the zocalo and some great restaurants & other attractions. Overall, a very good choice of hotels in Valladolid. I highly recommend it!

One little tip... don't bother buying bottled water at the reception desk (even though they do sell it). There is a 20-liter bottle of purified water under/beside the staircase that customers can use to fill up their smaller water bottles.

If you are just looking for a place to crash for a couple of nights while you explore Valladolid, Hotel Zaci is a good choice. The hotel is very clean and comfortable albeit pretty basic. The location is very close to the main square and most everything that you would want to do or see in town is within easy walking distance. There is not a lot of tourist info available at the hotel however there is a tourist info centre on the east side of the main square and the town is well signed.

Room Tip: All the rooms face into the courtyard. The ones around the pool might be a little brighter.

The staff was unfriendly and unhelpful. The first room offered had a strong smell of sewage. There were no extra towels for use of the pool. No one spoke English and being unhelpful to boot, we were on our own.

Great for the price,clean and spacious, rooms a bit dark. No restaurant on site but you are one block from main square. Parking at the back of the hotel and free wi fi. Pool looked clean but Asia was a bit cool and not heated did not try it out. Would stay there again

Definitely not a top notch hotel, but inexpensive, and well located in the centre of Valladolid. Rooms are reasonably equipped and quite clean. Free wifi internet. Pretty patio with a small pool. Courteous personnel. No breakfast but there is a nice restaurant on the main square, just a couple of blocks away, where you can have a rich buffet breakfast.
