El Meson is right on the plaza. It is the perfect location to be at to view all that Valladolid has to offer. It is not a luxury hotel but I don't think there are any in Valladolid. The city is definitely worth visiting. The Meson has parking for guests behind the hotel and also has a wonderful restaurant serving... More

I had the regional dish "papatzules" and it did not disappointed me. The flavor was like home made. The sauce's taste and consistency was just perfect. We also ordered some Mexican flan and it truly was like having my dad's flan. Service was excellent. They were very attentive without being over the top. Clean and a very nice atmosphere

Nice room and facilities to rest and relax especially if you've been doing hostels and adventuring . Wifi absolutely does not work in the rooms which we were assured: felt lied to as the materials of the building make that impossible (after checking in) . 11pm they START construction on the pool or restaurant . Many people come out of... More

Great location on the square, lovely internal courtyard garden with seating around. Very pleasant and attentive staff. Food ,well the second worst meal we have had in Mexico Chicken and chips should be easy- but dry small chicken legs, and crinkle fries with warm rare carrots and possibly a bit of cucumber,and of course lime. I hand a yucatan specialty... More

Lovely setting around a courtyard with fountain in the middle. Staff were friendly, service was pretty attentive. It was a little more expensive than most other places in the town ~20% more. The food was fine but not special at all.

We had dinner on Sunday night. The restaurant is beautiful, with a gorgeous planted area in the centre. The food was excellent with plenty of choice. Service was also excellent and very friendly. Washed down with some Local beer, what could be better.

First stopped here on a Sunday afternoon. A nice retreat from the sun in the main square. Had lunch with a pitcher of lemonade that was great tasting and super value. So much so that we made a point of driving back into Valladolid after visiting Chichen Itza to have lunch again. Staff were very friendly and there's a nice... More

They have a huge menu and it was hard to choose, but the food was excellent and so the service !! Try the shrimps "flamblées" which the waiter himself cooked and prepared... More

One of my favourite restaurant when I visit the region. Food is outstanding and service is just outstanding. If you want to feel old Spanish Mexican heritage then you must try this place. Thumbs up all the way.
