Recent guest reviews

We came from Uxmal and took the scenic road 261 to Campeche. Takes a little bit longer , with many crossover bumps but we could enjoy the countryside. The hotel is at the top of the busy pedestrian zone and their is a valet car parc. You can have your car whenever you want Ricardo at the reception is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are a little dated but have all things you need Bathroom spacious and clean Bets comfortable Breakfast was good , however on Sunday the service a little slow Restaurants and little shops are nearby and very nice. In the restaurants you can expect authentic Mexican food and of course beer from the tap. Besides Corona and Modelo of course local beer. If you want in liter jugs for a very good price People are extremely friendly and try to accommodate. The Malecon is 6 min by foot and you can enjoy the beautiful sunset The old town is a World Heritage Place with a Wall around it and many museums The Mayan architects museum is very instructive and before you hit the temples have a visit here and get some very valuable infos We were very lucky , because we visited during the Holy Week and we enjoyed a concert and professional folk dancing. For photo freaks there are thousands of Motiv in this town. After sunset the people are out on the street and enjoy the breeze from the Waterfront So if you want a real Mexican town , without the Macs , Burger King etc come here and enjoy. Fly to Mérida and drive down to Campeche. Of course there is so much to experience in this state and not only Maya Tempels. Here you have the old country feeling without flying over the ocean to Spain or Portugal However if you want it the Florida Way stay in Cancun and be happy with it.

At first sight, the Casa Don Gustavo in Campeche is charming. It's a traditional building on Calle 59, the main street with a lot of bars and restaurants in the old town. The rooms are on two floors round the central courtyard and attractively done with traditional furniture. There is a small pool area which is very nice unless it gets invaded by a large group of students drinking and smoking - supposedly not allowed (which happened to us). It should be an advantage to be so close to the action, but that's also a problem. The street is closed to traffic, so it's trickylt to get into the hotel, although the staff are helpful with bags and parking. Every establishment is blasting out music at top volume and the noise from the street, particularly in the "master suites", goes on until the early hours of the morning. Another problem at this hotel is breakfast. The coffee is bad, the bread and pastries are poor and the service is atrocious. Overall, we felt Casa Don Gustavo had the potential to be a really great place, but it needs triple soundproofing for the street-facing rooms and better management.

I stayed at casa don gustavo for a few days during the half ironman competition. I got one of the rooms on the second floor towards the rear of the hotel. My room was wonderful and quiet. Perfect size, extremely clean and well looked after. The staff at the hotel was incredibly friendly and accommodating. Breakfasts were delicious, fresh and featured local cuisine like "Pan de Cazon." The hotel also provided each guest competing in the ironman a basket of treats (race gels and candy). This gesture was very thoughtful. I did not want to leave. Thank you for making my time in Campeche so memorable.

My husband and I normally go for the better rooms in a hotel, but I had read reviews saying that the Master Suite at this hotel was on the noisy pedestrian street. In the end, we opted for the Standard Suite, which had enough space and storage, at the rear of the hotel. We had several issues. The minor issues were it took forever to get any hot water -- I mean maybe 5 minutes of wasted water. In our room, the shower and toilet area are separated by a short wall. There is a gap in the wall, so when the shower runs, water leaks into the toilet area. Strange design. Our big problem started the next morning when I awoke to thumping at 7:30am. We got up and had the uninspired free continental breakfast -- the other two days we opted for a full breakfast, which added just a little to the cost. In the afternoon, we returned for our siesta -- most of the town shuts down -- to find the thumping still going on and it continued until about 6 pm. I sat outside the room in the lounge area for hours. Finally, we visited Nelly, the lovely receptionist. It turns out that the building next door is being renovated, which they knew about but failed to inform us and offer an upgrade for the time we stayed, as rooms were available. After much back and forth, we were comped a night and moved to a Junior Suite, which is on the other side of the hotel. This worked out well, other than having to move our stuff. The hotel is pretty old fashioned. The antique furniture isn't particularly comfortable, although the bed is. We had lunch in the dining room when we arrived. The food was good but the room stuffy. We ate breakfasts in the courtyard, which is pleasant.

When we walked in, I had the feeling I'd been here before.. Another hacienda in different location but the similarities were so similar it made me smile. This little hideaway tucked amongst the hustle and bustle of the streets is a treasure to behold. The architecture and furnishings make this a wonderful retreat. Each room has its own features which make them one of a kind. Upon walking into the room you are greeted with a bowl of fresh fruit and small bottles of champagne, the beds are turned down on the evenings and bottles of water and cookies are placed bed side. The room is closed off for the evening so you don't have to do it when up returning from your evening out. The amenities are very nice and appreciated. There is great care given to each room, making it a real treat after a busy day out. The hotel staff are friendly and attentive. Breakfast is included in your room, wth a wide variety to choose from. A full menu is served, I'm just sorry I didn't take the time to try other meals. I can hear Casa Don Gustavo calling us back again.

A "traditional Hotel" set out round two courtyards. It is in the old town part of Campeche, and is a bit difficult to get to as the stree the hotl is in has been pedestrianised. So you Hover nearby and the passenger gets out , goes to the hotel, and comes back with a porter who will then park the car for you, and get it back when you leave. The reception staff were charming, but there did not seem to actually be anyone in charge. The small swimming pool is a very pleasant Our bedroom was large, very Spanish colonial (hence a bit dark) and overlooked the street below, which we could view from our very small balcony We were going to eat in the hotel restaurant, but were spooked by the waiter there who was a bit odd. So we ate at a very popular local restaurant bang opposite. Campeche has a number of nice restaurants within a few hundred meters The town of Campeche is a well preserved walled colonial city - walls originally to protect the citizens the the "English Pirate Drake" We stayed just one night and were glad to have visited the town. But that was probably enough time to "do Campeche"

Hotel Boutique Casa Don Gustavo is strategically situated in the middle of main attractions in Campeche. Decoration of rooms is wonderful and are very clean. Staff has a good attitude of service and they improve it each single day. The restaurant offers great options plenty of flavor. Come to Campeche a WONDERFUL CITY and visit this hotel, you´ll be impressed and will spend fantastic days here!

Truly a luxury hotel with everything you need and more! Great central location! Staff is super friendly and helpful in everyway! I look forward to my return and will definitely stay here again! The food in the restaurant was exceptional I found myself wanting eating here for all meals! Formal but very relaxed, lovely!

Can't do better than this in the region. We had only the 1 night here on the way through to Tulum. Forget about Merida, Campeche leaves it for dead and The Don Gustavo is the main reason why. The staff are absolute champions!

Lovely colonial town house converted to slightly austere rooms decorated with antique furnishings. Friendly staff. Get a room to the rear for quiet. Our Junior Suite (104) a bit gloomy with only high level wall lights and bedside lamps. Small double bed moderately comfortable with ungiving foam pillows. Bathroom has good shower, good toiletries, and best of all - a shaving mirror! The very necessary air con works well. Small pool is a nice welcomed extra. Continental breakfast OK
