This is a lovely quaint hotel in El Fuerte and I would recommend staying here. The property is absolutely beautiful, with so much garden space, terraces and a good location. It is close to the main sights in the city and the river.
The room was large, bed was comfortable. Bathroom was good. The TV even had Netflix (to use with your own password).
Staff is courteous and helpful. Even though barely anyone speaks English, they still try to help as far as possible. Dinner was good and the server was also very good. Breakfast was delicious too (but service was a bit slow and inattentive). For breakfast you have to select any one item from a fixed menu. The place where breakfast is served has the nicest ambiance.
I arrived late at night and left early in the morning - I wish I could have stayed at this hotel longer. As soon as I walked in, it had the most cheerful and happy vibe. Would recommend this hotel in El Fuerte.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Posada del Hidalgo is a beautiful colonial mansion. This attractive structure was built in 1890 by Don Rafael Almada, a wealthy and influential "alcalde" (mayor) who spent five years and 100,000 gold pesos on its construction. The wooden trim was made from 285 Canadian red pine beams. Don Rafael's mansion was the largest and most beautiful in El Fuerte. It was built just below the old fort, and has four layers of brick and adobe construction. The iron work was brought from Mazatlan. ... more less
