again the the review I read ws very accurate. no remodel since the 1970s, could have been cleaner. This hotel is very big, lots of rooms, but not many seem to be in use. The room you want to book is one of the lower balconies' that faces the zocalo. the reason is the amazing music performed nightly in the... More

We always stay at the Colonial when we want a night or two in Veracruz because it is directly on the Zocalo where there are a choice of restaurants and bars. The old place is clean and cared for, not new. Never had a bad stay here in 7 years. Park onsite. Walk to the warf, several very good modern... More

The hotel located right on the main city plaza in the older part of town. There is parking available in the building next door. The hotel is a little old which made it interesting. They accommodated us quickly and reasonably without any hassle even though we arrived late without a reservation. Our room was a little worn but clean, large... More

The only thing that tempts me to award more than 3 stars is location, location, location. You will walk from the front door onto the oldest plaza in Mexico, where "alegre" may as well have been defined. I was in Colonial for my first Veracruz night more than 20 years ago, and I have returned various times with family, friends,... More

Firstable I have to thank the hotel Staff for taking care of a valuable forgotten asset I forgot at the lobby. The staff took care of it and returned it undamaged. They were really nice and were originally concerned of me getting my stuff back. Thank you guys! Your honesty makes a difference! The hotel is near "El malecón" 5... More

No hotel is more central (right on the town square / "Zocalo"), so a few minutes' walk gets you almost anywhere you'd want to be. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean (and mine was very quiet), though not everyone well enjoy the very firm beds. There's a small pool on the 2nd floor and no in-house restaurant (try Sanborn's on...

On our way through Mexico we stopped in Veracruz for two nights. Because of its perfect location, we chose the Hotel Colonial. From the feedback here we knew it's kinda of a mixed bag.

This hotel is in a good location however it knew better days. the service is not the best and the whole hotel is not so clean. i do not think it is good value for money. the only advantage of this hotel is it´s location. Right on the socalo. sorrounded by many cafes and restaurants.

“I have stayed solo, as a couple, as family, and with friends, including a U.S. group I headed. Ask for a room overlooking the harbor, not the loud plaza. Do not expect a resort, at all. I suggest eating elsewhere, especially for breakfast. Food is an important reason for going to Veracruz.”
