Located quite close to the centre but not noisy at all, with friendly staff and a nice garden which gives the surrounding rooms a chilling feel in winter... and with no heating you need a good number of blankets to keep you warm in the middle of December. Our room was not very spacious but clean and comfortable. There is...

The only thing worth seeing is the beautiful and very well kept garden. The rooms are average, phone never worked, no heating in the room, and we had issues with the water boiler that were never fixed, I was even suggested to shower in my friends room! Not cool, man, not cool. Budget hotel, super close to downtown.

We recently stayed in hotel jovel during a visit to the state of Chiapas. We used San Cristóbal as our base in Chiapas as we took day trips to other towns. The hotel is clean and nice, and the staff is friendly and helpful. However, the rooms get very cold in the winter since they lack insulation and the hotel...

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Jovel for 5 nights in a pretty corner room on the 3rd floor. It had outside windows on 2 sides and was very comfortable, bright and cheery (some rooms opened on the inside corridor). It had great WiFi in the room and plenty of blankets. The interior garden was beautiful with nice places...

Very pretty place, with rooms surrounding a pretty courtyard. We stayed here as we wanted somewhere with parking facilities. The views from rooftop were lovely. San Cristobal is freezing, and the rooms were cold. But had extra blankets in the cupboard. Would've been nice to have an option for a heater. Apparently, they do have heaters for hire but we...

Look-- if you haven't done anything outside of Mexico besides Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, Cabo, etc, and you expect similar lodgings-- best pony-up and get a room at your familiar chain-- can't remember if it's Best Western or Holiday Inn or whatever. If you want a decent room at a decent price that's a couple of blocks off the main walks...

Food is expensive and not good at all, the room had a black water smell and they didn't do anything with my complain. I booked 4 nights and in the third one they told me that my room was booked so I had to leave the hotel sooner and stayed at the hostal. Tours were not ok because they didn't...
