Posada Del Cafeto
Promising moments of dreamy bliss amid Xalapa’s traffic chaos, the Cafeto hides the noisy city behind its thick colonial walls...
Hotel Casa Real Del Cafe
Providing healthy competition to the Posada de Coatepec is the equally deluxe Casa Real del Café, a colonial-style hotel owned by local coffee farmers whose aromatic products fortuitously find their way into the onsite Antiguo Beneficio 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...
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 a recently added Italianate pool and onsite cafe (a Parroquia, no less)...
Posada Doña Lala
Hotel Posada Doña Lala banks on its famous reputation, but it has neat rooms and a great location near the river and the town’s main plaza. The restaurant – recent recipient of a funky makeover – serves up some ravishing fresh and saltwater fish dishes.
Hotel La Finca
Set lakeside 2km west of town, this resortlike hotel has rooms with large, lake-view balconies, and a pool with slides and a hot tub. It’s a deal outside peak seasons, if seclusion from town is pleasing to you. It provides lancha and spa services.
Hotel Posada Loma
Fortin de las Flores
If you’re a garden lover, this is your oasis. Its grounds are a marvel of greenhouses, famous orchid collections, gardens with exotic and local flowers, terraces and a pool. The airy accommodations come with fireplaces for winter nights...
Hostal De La Niebla
Something of a mirage in these climes, this modern Scandinavian-style hostel is no half-baked nod to the backpacker market. Rather it’s a spotless, well-organized, community-oriented accommodations that comes with airy rooms with decks and terraces...
Hotel Casa Del Rio
Creating super-modern rooms in a traditional historic structure can sometimes be a tough task, but ‘del Río’ gets it right with nine spacious offerings in a house backing onto the river.
Gran Hotel Diligencias
The fanciest option on the zócalo is not actually its most atmospheric (that would be the Imperial), but the Diligencias is a good central perch with huge rooms that deliver elegance, if not personality...
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)...
Hotel Meson Del Mar
A colonial downtown place with clean, well cared for rooms with tall ceilings (some have cool lofts and balconies)...
Hotel Punta Real
Traditionally, the most upscale beach option isn’t always the best, but it is in Chachalacas...
Meson Del Alferez Xalapa
Owned by the same company as the Posada del Cafeto, the Alférez sets the comfort gauge even higher with beautiful split-level rooms (beds upstairs, living room below), flower-filled greenery and – allegedly – the best breakfast in town in its refined ...
Hotel Villas Arcon
This pretty, low-rise hotel situated in the village that no one’s ever heard of (but should’ve) might be a little overpriced, but it does allow you to live in some comfort while getting in touch with Mexico’s gritty essence...
Like a diamond in the rough, the new Nu has pitched itself amid the scruffy next-to-bus-station hovels and declared war. It’s no contest really, especially at these prices...
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...
The best budget option is a rather sickly pink and white building with a sleek cafe-restaurant on the ground floor and slightly darker and more basic rooms (60 of ‘em) up above. It’s one block from the plaza and has its own underground car park.
One of several budget places on the zócalo; well kept, though plain and fan-cooled. Some rooms have views.
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...
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 Paraje Coyopolan
Just outside Xico, this center enjoys an exquisite location right on the river. The economical rooms here are delightful and vibrant, and the restaurant serves superb regional food.
