The getaway of the Colonial Yucatan from Cancun and the Riviera Maya, Valladolid is a colorful colonial town with so much to see that it’s worth spending a few days. In my recent stay, I went ahead and visited a few hotels and this is my honest review.
There are many different hotel options in Valladolid, for every budget and style. The good part is that even the most moderately priced hotels offer the quaint colonial feel and local colorful decorations, manicured lush gardens, and, most of all the usual Yucatan hospitality that will make you feel at home.
Deciding where to stay is important. It’s refreshing to know that after a day spent exploring Valladolid and surrounding, you will finally go back to a comfortable and cozy place to relax and chill or get ready to explore the Valladolid Restaurants.
So without further ado, here I am sharing my favorite places to stay in Valladolid.
MIDDLE-RANGE PRICED HOTELS IN VALLADOLID
I fell in love with this hotel at first sight. The rooms are simple but very nicely decorated with the finest Mexican art and colorful details.
The internal patio is also really cute, with a small pool and lots of plants and trees.
The rates are very reasonable considering the quality of the place.
I believe that’s the best deal in town, among the hotels I have seen.
It’s also conveniently located at only two blocks from the main square.
Oh! and the guests have full access to a fully equipped kitchen to prepare their own meals if they wish.
LA MESON DEL MARQUES
This hotel is quite an icon in Valladolid.
It’s right in the plaza with the room facing an internal patio with a pool.
I have stayed there a couple of years ago and the rooms are decent and clean, although not particularly glamorous.
Still a great option if you want to stay right in the heart of the city.
Their restaurant is also quite popular in a nice courtyard, offering Mexican cuisine.
HOTEL ZENTIK PROJECT
This is another favorite of mine, but it’s located at about 1 mile from the center, which in this heat can become quite a long way.
The hotel is one of a kind though and definitely worth the distance. It’s like an oasis of peace and art. Every room is decorated with unique pieces of graffiti art form different artists, local and foreigners.
They have a natural cave that they have filled with mineral hot water for healing treatments, besides a pool, a spa and colorful art all over the places.
They have a restaurant that is open for the guests and to the public as well.
Definitely, a beautiful place to stay.
LUXURY HOTELS IN VALLADOLID
A very tiny and elegant property, and super private, since they made up excuses not to show me a room.
From what I am seeing though, the accommodation follows the same elegant style of the reception, while conserving the traditional colorful tiles and other decorative objects of the colonial times.
An exquisite property indeed.
It’s also located at 2 blocks from the center.
COLONTE HOTEL ORIGEN
I saw it while biking passed it and I was impressed by the chic-rustic style of the entrance. So I peeped in and decided to go back the following day for breakfast.
I was happy to find a vegan option and I enjoyed my delicious meal in the peaceful garden, by a pool, surrounded by lots of plants.
After breakfast, I managed to see one room and it did impress me.
It was one of the rooms located downstairs which are bigger and with a very private outdoor patio that gives access to the shower and bathroom.
The room is minimally decorated and very elegant.
Not sure whether it is worth the high price but certainly a good option to consider.
Located in an old colonial house that was originally a tile fabric, right in the trendy Calzada de Los Frailes, this beautiful boutique hotel will make you feel like you have jumped in the past right in the colonial era. Everything about this hotel is a piece of history combined with the finest art and amenities for the comfort of the guests. The well-maintained garden and the vintage style pool are also part of the charm.
A lovely coffee shop within the premises offers vegan and vegetarian snacks and breakfast.
I stayed in an Airbnb because I prefer to have my own kitchen and be free to cook my own meal. I find I have more privacy in my own home, and it feels like living the local life. Use the search box below to find your own Airbnb
