    Superb location next to its namesake, the 18th century fort.A couple blocks away from the Malecon ,the highly recomended Naval museum,and all the action of the historic center.An attractive interior by the restaurant and elevator. The rooms are clean with strong Wi-Fi.Highly recomended and fantastic for the budget.

    Good stay... good staff.. servers were great!!

    The place is located very close to The Malecón which it has lots of little stands of food and other stuff for people to buy... also it wasn't to far from the Aquarium and San Juan de Ulúa which my visit there was pretty awesome (The aquarium is not that great btw) just do the Wax museum and the ripleys museum instead😎👍 The servers at the restaurant downstairs were super nice, Specially Sergio but honestly Angel,Luis and Francisco (Panchito) were pretty helpful at all times as well as the ladies at the cash register. Nice little bar and Good food😎 Definitely coming back in the future
