How to Get There
All the reviews that speak of charm and location are accurate. First though, this is not the Hilton so if you want new or minimalist, read on to the next hotel on the list. Located in a former house, all the rooms are different, and everything is what you want in Mexico, stone steps, mixed-up colors, a picturesque courtyard, antiques. Nothing is matched or "corporate". Unlike with many hotels, the street outside is small and accessible, at the same time being part of the city and yet in a secret romantic part of it (few cars, sidewalk cafes, stalls of "almost" antiques on the weekends). Annoyances? Some noise from the restaurant, high steps in the room. Pluses, good mattress, tasty breakfast. I intended to take the bus from MEX but the hotel arranged a reasonable transfer and this was worth it for lack of hassle.
Very nicely located in a charming street downtown Puebla. Walking distance to all major downtown attractions. The hotel itself is a cozy traditional mexican villa. Breakfast was outstanding, several options available and freshly made upon request, including excellent regional dishes. Overall we have a very pleasant stay, also mainly due to the very friendly and attentive service from the hotel staff!
Mesón Sacristía de la Compañía
As first time visitors to Puebla, we could not have chosen a more perfect hotel. When you enter the gates of this former convent, you are transported to another world, in another century. The beautiful property is filled with art, antique furniture and objects, as well as many trees and plants in the charming pink courtyard. We were greeted by Andrés who graciously upgraded us to a master suite, a magnificent high-ceilinged room decorated with antique paintings, and sculptures, and contains 2 large sofas and a canopy bed.
A delicious breakfast which includes many local specialties is included and served in the courtyard or dining room, and the restaurant is one of the most popular in Puebla for dinner.
Many thanks to Andrés and Edgar, who went above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one. Looking forward to returning soon!
