Overview

Design-forward boutique in the charming UNESCO World Heritage city of Puebla, with a standout restaurant and rooftop pool

The Look

Designed by Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta, La Purificadora is decorated in a monochromatic black-and-white scheme with royal purple accents. The open-air building is constructed from original archaeological whitewashed stone that offsets old wood pillars and onyx and tile floors. Fountains trickle by day; firepits blaze in the evenings. A sweeping staircase off the lobby transports guests to their rooms, as well as to a dramatic third-floor rooftop that offers stunning city views.

Bed and Bath

Rooms are basic but comfortable, with simple wood furnishings, cozy beds, small minibars and exposed glass closets. Flat-screen TVs and an iPod dock await the tech-dependent, and organic products are in the bathrooms. Opt for a balcony room or a corner suite as they have more open floor plans, while Top Suites also include a private jacuzzi.

Beyond

The restaurant, filled with long tables made from original wood, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with the country’s culinary traditions in mind. Off the lobby the library is ideal for morning e-mails or after-dinner drinks. A small spa, which sits alongside the pool and gym on the third-floor rooftop, offers treatments ranging from facials to massages and wraps. In the evening the rooftop bar turns into a posh spot for the city’s social set.

La purificadora is part of the habita hotel collection in Mexico that boasts the best quality and service, setting apart from the rest. I have stayed at Habita in Mexic city and Hotel habita (formerly known as hotel fayette) in Guadalajara. This hotel chain has been a known quality for me. Unsurprisingly, the hotel service was impeccable. The firepits were a “warm (pun intended)” addition for me to relax around in the evenings in Puebla that can be windy and somewhat cold. The enchiladas pueblanas that I tasted for breakfast were immensly unforgettable. Regretfully, the pool was in repair so it was not open. I would have enjoyed my stay even more with that amazingly looking swimming pool doing the day.

A Happy First
Reviewed 5 months ago

Many times in Puebla but first time staying at La Purificadora. Beautiful property, rooms are large and welcoming and service is excellent.

My wife and I went to celebrate our daughter’s first birthday. The staff was accommodating with the crib, and even made us a surprise birthday cake with a candle for her to blow.

The central lounge area is excellent to sit and socialize, have a drink, or order dinner by the fire for a nice quiet atmosphere.

It was a nice, private way to celebrate our daughter’s first birthday during our first time at La Purificadora. We’ll be sure to return.

The hotel is within a few walkable blocks from the main downtown cathedral. The famous 6 Oriente where all the local candy can be found. The old Theatre sits right across.

Book with care. If there’s an event in the plaza across from the hotel, it could get noisy until very late. The rooms are fairly well soundproofed and we stayed through one of those nights. Yes noisy, but manageable.

Beware of blowup mattress

Very beautiful hotel within a 10-15 minutes walk to the Zocalo. Staff was very nice and architecture of hotel is stunning. I originally booked a room for 2 and a friend deicded to join last minute. All rooms with 2 beds are now sold out but read that a "rollaway" bed are available which was fine. When we arrived we were given a blow up mattress which deflated in the middle of the night so essentially my friend slept on the floor. The worst part about it was the additional charge for $40 per night which we stayed for 3 nights. Had we known we would've switched hotel just for a more comfortable stay for everyone. Hotel is gorgeous but not worth sleeping on the floor.
