Hotel Meson Del Mar
This colonial charmer boasts friendly staff, well cared for rooms with tall ceilings (many have mezzanines with extra sleeping spaces) and buckets of local atmosphere...
Meson Del Alferez Xalapa
This gorgeous place right in the center of town manages to get it all just right...
Hotel Casa Real Del Cafe
This colonial-style hotel is owned by local coffee farmers whose aromatic products fortuitously find their way into the onsite Antiguo Beneficio cafe...
Posada Doña Lala
With its smart pink façade looking towards the river, Doña Lala is a marker for the center of town, but it's also a friendly and comfortable hotel, with spacious, spotless rooms, high ceilings and great views if you're lucky enough to score a room on ...
Hotel Posada Loma
Fortin de las Flores
Its location (on the busy main road to Córdoba, 1km outside the center of Fortín) may not initially suggest a garden oasis, but once you drive up the hill and leave the traffic behind, that's exactly what you get here...
Gran Hotel Diligencias
The fanciest option on the zócalo has a very smart lobby full of fresh flowers and abuzz with livery-clad bellhops...
Posada Del Cafeto
Centrally located on a quiet side street, the Cafeto hides the noisy city behind its thick colonial walls. The dual inner patios with their finely sculpted stairways and arches create a kind of ‘secret garden’ feel...
Hotel Mar Y Tierra
Despite some piecemeal remodeling, the Mar y Tierra’s general demeanor leaves you wondering if the designers got their tips from Fidel Castro’s Cuba (think austere)...
This is the smartest option in the town itself. Centrally located, it's a friendly, well-run place with spacious and airy rooms, each with its own semi-private outdoor space and seating area. There's cable TV and even a small pool.
Successfully creates a peaceful, verdant getaway right off Hwy 85. The expansive, landscaped grounds have a large pool, and some of the spacious, well-kept rooms have stone tubs...
Hotel Fortin De Las Flores
Fortín de las Flores
Charming gardens and a good pool offset the austerity in evidence elsewhere at this long-established central option. Rooms are attractively tiled, have antique air-con units and good bathrooms, while the pool has super views towards Pico de Orizaba...
Papantla de Olarte
So what if the interior is a little dated; the Tajín is an intrinsic part of the Papantla experience with a prime edge-of-zócalo location and an Italianate pool and onsite Parroquia cafe...
Hotel Gran Palmeiras
Turn right at the entrance to the town and within 300m you’re in the domain of the Palmeiras, a primarily Mexican enclave at the mouth of a river with giant king-sized beds filling otherwise simple rooms...
The Nu has pitched itself amid the scruffy next-to-bus-station hovels and declared war. It’s no contest really, especially at these prices. Savor the clean, minimalist-chic rooms; young, casual staff; and cool downstairs cafe...
Claiming five stories of prime viewing space above Córdoba’s main plaza, the Mansur, with its vast balconies equipped with thick wooden chairs, makes you feel as if you’re part of the ‘show’ going on below...
The best budget option in Córdoba is this large place with a smart, bright lobby and rather less impressive, characterless rooms, only some of which have air-con...
Hotel Villas Arcon
At the entrance to Villa Rica, this attractively set low-rise resort hotel might be a little overpriced, but it does allow you to live in some comfort while getting in touch with Mexico’s gritty essence...
Hotel Posada Koniapan
On the easternmost tip of the malecón, the Koniapan offers privacy and peace in manicured grounds with a pool and kid’s playground. The rooms could do with a creative rethink, but they’re bright and spotless and the staff has a friendly demeanor...
This friendly budget option has 25 clean rooms just off the zócalo . It's well kept, though plain and fan-cooled. Some rooms have balconies and views – try for one of these, as those at the back lack natural daylight. Cable TV is a bonus.
At the entrance to Parque Nacional Cofre de Perote, Hostería Covadonga has a restaurant and is recommended as a lovely base from which to explore the park.
Hotel Plaza Real
Coscomatepec de Bravo
One block to the east of the main square, this new and currently rather poorly signed hotel has plenty of quirks; one of the rooms is a dental surgery, and the owner drives his SUV into the lobby to park it overnight...
Hotel Paraje Coyopolan
It's all about bright colours and lively Mexican design at this super place right on the river just outside the town...
