The oldest hotel in Veracruz, 'dlligencias' referring to the stagecoaches that stopped here between Mexico City and the port -- with such historic figures as Benito Juárez, Maximilian and Carlota needing lodging here. Prolific songwriter Agustín Lara wrote at least one of his

This is the best place to stay in downtown/historic Veracruz. Come here if you want to enjoy the sights and (esp.) sounds of this magical/musical city. Rooms facing the Zocalo (plaza) provide entertainment day and night. The rooms are pretty and well kept. The staff is very

Hotel has certainly seen better times but still maintains an air of calm and quality in this historic port. Perfectly located on the historic Zocalo. 5 mins from the seafront. Staff incredibly helpful. Very friendly

In its day I'll bet it was awesome. Now the rooms are dated although we were on the 4th floor with a view of the plaza and Cathedral and the tub shower worked great and the water drained. Also, the bed was not bad on my back and the a/c thermostat actually worked! Great

There is a website. Just google Gran Hotel Diligencias and look for one that starts gran-diligencia. One is in Spanish and another is in English. You can do it online. There was no phone number. I can't remember where I got the phone number and don't have it anymore. Maybe I emailed them and they replied with it. But you might need some Spanish to communicate. Ask for a view of the Parque (Plaza).

We found Veracruz safe and we are both over 70. The hotel is right on the parade route, at least it was for at least one of them. View the parage from above the street on their second floor terrace overlooking the park.

Do you charge for airport pickup?
Yes, the hotel charges a flat rate for airport pick-up (250 pesos). We had 2 people, so it was 125 pesos each.

do they charge for the air[ort transportation?
Unfortunately they do not have a shuttle to the hotel but it is more than worth the cost of a taxi as it is a wonder place to stay !!

Do US citizens need to bring bottled water or is the hotel water filtered?
I would recommend buying bottled water. The water at the hotel is good for making coffee but better to stick to bottled water for drinking. You will love the hotel ! Great rates and right across the street from the main plaza. I will be staying there my next trip to Veracruz

"back rooms are quieter."
