We started our tour of the State of Veracruz in the city of Veracruz. We stayed at the Diligencia which is right on the Plaza. There was music and dancing free every night. There is much to do in this port city and because of the strength of the dollar, it is a huge bargain. The Diligencia is a wonderful... More

Located right across the street from the city's central plaza it offers short walks to everything you want to see in Veracruz. The rooms are spotless and large. The patio area out front is a perfect place to kick back with a drink and people watch. Service is great and they have a smoking section where you can enjoy a... More

We came back to stay in this hotel it is central and very comfortable. Close to the Zocalo and harbour in walking distance. The rooms are clean and big this time we were on the other side of the building. After a warm day and work we had a nice swim in the roof swimming pool. This time we used... More

Great hotel. Excellent location. Just like the gran hotel de la ciudad de mexico! This hotel is in front of the zocalo in Veracruz. The price is great for the quality of the hotel and it's amenities. I will highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great hotel for a very reasonable price.

This is a grand old hotel in the center of the city. The room was spacious, very clean and had a powerful shower! The staff were friendly and helpful. Some rudimentary knowledge of Spanish is helpful in Veracruz, because not much English is spoken. The hotel restaurant serves a solid breakfast and the bar makes a mean Mojito. The hotel... More

Had a lovely experience here with my Spanish speaking daughter. The hotel has historical significance and that age is reflected in the beautiful marble floors, big large rooms, and the tiled bath. Though the room was older, it was spotlessly clean and very large. The location was what made it perfect. It is right in the main square, close to... More

My husband and I had a week's reservation at this hotel. During our first week in Veracruz, while staying at another much less expensive property, we decided to stroll over to view where we would be staying. We were not impressed in the least bit. The front desk staff was stuffy and the room ws far from impressive. The architecture... More

The Gran Hotel Diligencias is a high-quality hotel located right on the main Zocalo, the main plaza in Veracruz. The rooms would meet any American standard for quality and cleanliness in a hotel of this quality. The amenities were all lovely, but having spent the previous four nights in a bed and breakfast, the feel was a little impersonal. Think... More

The hotel faces onto the Zocalo and is easy to access via Independencia. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are extremely large and clean with super comfortable beds. Parking is in the hotel parking garage, which is no hassle. The hotel restaurant is Villa Rica, which is a solid seafood restaurant chain in the city. The bar has... More

“There is music at night so if you go to bed early, choose back room. Rooms in front look right down on the plaza where all the action is.”

“No preference for a room, but still would suggest on the side not at the front overlooking the zocalo.”
 of 5 bubbles ClassicStrider, 11 Jul 2016 | Read review
“Views of the Zocalo will be most desirable but probably also a bit noisier during the day. Evenings are quiet regardless”
