The Casa Balam is 2 blocks from the square and 1 block from a smaller square with great restaurants. The hotel has a pleasant central courtyard.
When we checked in we found the man behind the desk difficult to communicate with in English, and even...More
Gorgeous lobby, complimentary breakfast, very reasonable prices, and the location is perfect. I would definitely stay again. Stayed 2 nights and took a day trip to Uxmal Ruins and La Hacienda Ochil... which were both beautiful as well. Would definitely recommend. Only complaint is there...More
Lovely hotel with old world charm. Lifts are also pretty old and when the inner panel retreats you have to push the door otherwise it goes back down! There is a little bar with seating next to the pool area. The staff were uniformly helpful...More

See answers provided below. If the questions raised are a major concern I suggest rethinking. This is a lovely, comfortable, clean and friendly hotel with all the character of a renovated Mexican mansion. It's not a Ritz or a Four Seasons, but we'd certainly return. Also, the location is unbeatable and noise was not an issue in our corner room in an upper floor.
We did not pay to have breakfast included, and I'm glad! We ate at the hotel restaurant the first day, but found lots of better and less expensive places nearby. Our favorite was Cafeteria Pop which had better coffee and a... More
We did not pay to have breakfast included, and I'm glad! We ate at the hotel restaurant the first day, but found lots of better and less expensive places nearby. Our favorite was Cafeteria Pop which had better coffee and a full egg breakfast (like huevos rancheros, for example) with juice or fruit, coffee, and toast for just around 50 pesos (less than $3). Another good place was right across the street Gourmet Cafe Molina, I think it was-- it seems like it's a chain however. Nevertheless, the coffee was better there, too. The mole enchiladas were very tasty. Avoid at all costs the Cuban place on the corner of Calle 55 and Calle 62--worst coffee ever! They have a huge roaster going in the window, but that's just for show. The coffee tasted like Nescafé, the glasses were filthy, and the service was snarky. Many places within a block or two offer specials for breakfast, so it's easy to go out and try different restaurants each day.
