In September, 2014, my friend and I arrived on motorcycles in Monterrey in a cold, monsoon and chanced upon the Hotel Colonial. Went into the lobby dripping wet, cold and tired. The man behind the desk gave us an excellent price on a room, moved the furniture in the lobby so that we could park our motorcycles out of the rain and off the street. The room was from an older era but clean and what we needed. The location is right in the heart of things, close to the downtown mall, shopping and many tourist attractions. If you are not looking for a 5 star property, you absolutely would not go wrong choosing the Hotel Colonial. I would stay there again if my travels ever take me back to Monterrey.
