How to Get There
I was here as part of a tour group of about 18 people for a yoga retreat. The highlight of this hotel, by far, was the mole served in the restaurant (best anywhere in Puebla, and after having mole for dinner here our first night, I ended up trying mole for lunch and dinner in all the other restaurants that we went to in Puebla over the next three days) and the breakfast buffet was very good too. Being a former convent, the additions to the hotel's design including the retractable roof above the courtyard were pretty impressive for whatever that's worth. The location of the hotel seemed a bit away from all the action, if there was such a place in Puebla, and the rooms seemed more drab than what you see in most online photos. I didn't book this hotel as part of my tour, so no way to compare it to other hotels when booking as I otherwise might have. My guess is there are better hotels in Puebla for similar pricing, but this worked for a few nights.
Puebla, the city, turned out to be one of the GEMS of my recent tour of the Yucatan with GateOne! This colonial city is beautifully restored with many restaurants, cafes, churches, handicrafts shops and places of interest to intrigue.
I stayed at the Quinta Real hotel, a few blocks from the city main square, which was a 16th century convent turned hotel. Besides the excellent location, the site exudes history and charm. It has a very large inner courtyard with dining service which was excellent. The rooms was spacious enough, with 21st century upgrades of AC, showers and very comfortable beds.
The reception was quick and easy, thanks tom karen Zuniga Perez, and the restaurant hostess, Teresa, was SO cheery and helpful. Thanks, also to the 'egg' folks, Valeria and Daniel.
The Hotel Quinta Real is very elegant in many ways and the staff is very responsive to their guests' needs. There were certain shortcomings that deal with its location and structure that require attention and others that are unchangeable.
The hotel is a former convent and it has been converted into a well designed, up scale hotel leaving touches of what must have formerly been one of the city's architectural jewels. However, the hotel is in a rather dull, uninteresting part of town and to see any action, you have to walk a few blocks in the direction of the Zocalo.
Some of the infrastructure needs updating. The rug in our room must be many years old and some threads were loose. In the hallway, the rug was patched (it is a thick rug) most inelegantly and the patch is separating from the surrounding rug.
The hotel has the look and feel of a building whose infrastructure is on a downward trajectory and needs to be refreshed. This is not due to a lack of effort on the part of the cleaning staff.
A few of the chairs in the lounge had their piping falling off and needed recovering. It is as if the person in charge of maintenance misses a small bundle of details that were obvious to me or does not have the budget to address them. Has anyone looked at the rug in the hallway outside of Room 219 in years? Quite shabby but anyone's standards.
When we were there, the hotel as very lightly populated with guests and stores located in the courtyard were closed and the bar, if opened, hardly in use. It lacked the vibrancy or buzz of a thriving hotel.
Not nearly as nice as the Quinta Real in Oaxaca which is truly a jewel and has the "buzz" and excitement that one looks for in a hotel.
