This hotel is wonderfully situated just a few minutes away from the centre of Veracruz. The nearest beach is just 50 m away and the airport is around 20 km away from the hotel. This hotel building was founded in the 18th century and is the oldest hotel in Latin America and is therefore a cultural heritage site. In 1836, it was the only hotel offering a restaurant service, a coffee service, a bar and a bathroom. Hotel's facilities include a breakfast room and a conference room.

We couldn't get in the Diligencias, which for its parking and other amenities is one of be Mexico's best. The Imperial is also only 50 meters away and facing the zocalo and features not just location, but superb service. If you have a car, Victor the concierge is there to help. A large framed print shows the building 200+ years ago and surely the classic ornate elevator in the lobby is one of the first installed in Mexico. Between the Diligencias and the Imperial, the traveler can't lose.
Excellent stay in historic hotel

The hotel is right downtown in the Zocalo and on the central plaza. While it can get noisy at night, especially on the weekends, closing the doors helps. Plus, the music is charming to listen to. The hotel is historical, and the staff are improving it bit by bit. The rooms and beds are impeccably clean. The breakfast is delicioso. It was fun to step outside,have a beer on the plaza, and people watch.
Worst experience ever

We felt drowned to this hotel due to it's historical attractiveness, however I do not recommend it at all. There are other small hotel right there which I would think are better options. We got there late evening on Easter and the hotel receptionist argued our reservation was not made and we had to deal with the travel agency, Not only did we feel ripped off but also he was not nice or helpful at all. He kept repeating "This is not of my business" I did reply, this IS your business, I'm going to make it YOUR business.

Hotel Imperial, in the Zocalo of Veracruz is a gem of architecture and history! I actually stood in the same balcony where Emperor Maximilian and Marie Charlotte glanced at the plaza! Unfortunately, it needs major attention by its owners/management. Because of this: rates are super-affordable. This hotel is for history buffs. Unique elevator. Location: unbeatable! There is no gym and the pool is murky. I am recommending it, but take this into consideration. It's like a 2 star hotel with problems, but the linens are clean!
