This hotel that had its heyday in the 1930's was a bit rundown and needs refurbishing and be brought up to the 21st century but it hasn't lost its charm. If they have to refurbish, I hope they could maintain the old world ambiance. The architecture is reminiscent of the opulence and extravagance of the early 20th century and they... More

From the time of the Golden Era of movies in the 30s...an integral part of the history of Veracruz/Boca del Rio and, for us, a step back in time (just like the Hotel Nacional in Havana). Sometimes I just stop in to have a coffee, see the sea from above (and drop in on the Villa Rica seafood restaurant down... More

Built in the 1930's this Hotel has been exceptionally maintained and provides those that have an eye for architectural extravagance a nostalgic view of the past. This hotel is basic in room services, it does not have hair dryers, the bathrooms are a little dated but in general we found the place clean and comfortable. We stayed nearly a week... More

I traveled with 50 students from Universidad Anahuac for a conference we stayed there 4 nights. The hotel is huge it has a big swiming pool and 2 restaurants. The service is slow and they don't have many people to attend rapidly (maybe need of training). The food is 7/10, breakfast 8/10. Reception 8/10. Rooms 9/8/10. Recommended for low budgets

The hotel has its historic charm and lovely ocean views. The beds are comfortable. A couple of things related to service made this hotel resulted in a low "average" rating. 1) Upon checking in I was given tickets for breakfast. To access the buffet breakfast (which was varied and decently good), one needs to present one ticket per person to... More

When I go to Veracruz I really want to immerse myself in its history, so it's here for Boca/beach and the Gran Hotel Diligencias for the port city. Because there's not much around the Mocambo but a nice but missable shopping center and a number of more modern hotels (the ones that get better ratings here, but don't impress me... More

This is a charming, friendly and attractive hotel overlooking the sea, set in large terraced grounds leading down to the main pool and then down further to the beach where there is a large area for residents to relax by another pool. Because of the different levels,it makes this an interesting and very pleasant place to stay, however, the only... More

I wanted to give this hotel 3 stars but I am one to appreciate character and I could see through the ages to the grandiose place it once was. I adored the beautiful woodwork and stained glass.

We (Friend and I) spent some days close to Veracruz and found this lovely colonial-style hotel very close to Mocambo Beach, directly south of downtown Veracruz, is located partially in the city and partially in the neighboring municipality of Boca del Rio.
