This charming posada is located in the lively and interesting historic center of Xalapa, Veracruz, Mexico. Once inside, it feels a world away. Formerly one of the grand private historic homes of the city, La Mariquinta has been remade as a small tasteful inn with a lovely garden, pleasant rooms, and friendly staff.

I discovered this Posada through some friends who live in Jalapa, after explaining them I wanted a place both central and quiet, which might have been difficult to combine. La Mariquinta is both and more, with the privileged feeling to stay in a historical house and a nice museum of arts, as I was offered to visit what still exists... More

Charming boutique hotel, with exceptional service and a welcoming and understanding manager. While the rooms are a bit oddly laid out - owing to it's being a converted private residence - it's charm and convenience make it a great value. Plus, in spite of being "in the middle of everything", it's very quiet and a relaxing retreat after a day... More

I stayed at this Posada during the Hay Literary Festival, held in Xalapa from the 6th to the 9th. The hotel is charming, the reception area which is a living room gives it a homey feeling. I had a small suite that was more than adequate. The hotel does not serve breakfast but there are quite a few great places... More

We are Mexico travelers and our favorite part of Mexico is the state of Veracruz which has everything within its borders including the small but interesting capital city of Xalapa. There are several small nice hotels in the city but Posada La Mariquinta is our favorite. It is a little more expensive than the others but the privacy, the beautiful... More

We travel in Mexico a lot, We like hotels that have character, where the staff is friendly and helpful, that are clean, that have plenty of hot water, and that have reading lights for the beds. We prefer to be in the historic centers. We do not require the latest in American- style facilities or conveniences. Great character and cool... More

For the good news: The owners were very understanding when we were so delayed by our flights that it took us 2 extra days to get to Xalapa.
