They cheat you on dollar exchang..internet sucks, bang on your door at 9am to ask if you plan to stay another night.. Check out is at 1pm.room .......OK but old very noisy. Maid banged on door at 10am even though do not disturb sign was out..they had high school team here which I don't mind but they let them stay up after midnight and then up bouncing basketballs at 7am
Comfy rooms and only a 10 minute walk to the centre. Helpful front desk and restaurant as well as a nice pool. A good budget option, there is a nice bar next door. Make sure you visit the Pancho Villa house and take the chepe train!
Convenient position on the main road so access in and out of the town was not difficult. Rooms were off a good standard. The restaurant food was off a good quality and all the staff were very attentive to our needs.
The rooms at the Best Western Mirador are very large and great for Families traveling in town or launching a trip to Creel and the Copper Canyon. I really like that the Hotel is located right on Universidad Avenue with ease access to a Vivabus Station. There are also two rent-a-car dealers right next to the hotel if you did not bring your car. The hotel looks and feels just like the Best Westerns of the roadway from west Texas, New Mexico and Arizona in the USA. The large rooms open onto a central parking lot where you park just outside the room. The hotel has two stories, so we had a room on the second floor near the end. The kids loved the indoor hotel and their was lots of room to just sit down and relax. The Hotel has a good restaurant and bar on property, which makes it great for staying on site. Getting around: A one way taxis run to downtown is about 3 dollars. Walking to downtown is about 3/4 of a mile and takes about 15 to 20 minutes. I uploaded a taxis rate sheet for the City from the hotel for your review. While we were there, we took the local public transportation called 'Vivabus' from the Deza y Ulloa Station on Universidad Ave, just a block from the hotel. The cost is a onetime charge of 20 pesos for your bus card and 6 pesos or about 40 cents per person for each stop, no matter the length of route. Note: Buy one card and use it for the members of your group. To use the Vivabus, look for the Red Stations in the middle of Universidad and pick up the bus in the direction you want to go. The Buses on the North/South route are new Mercedes Marco Polo, Air Conditioned ones which are very similar to those in the big Cities in the US. The main bus route goes North to South through the City, so if you wish to go downtown, take the South route which heads to the right of the Station. To return from downtown, take the North Route back to the Hotel. There are several station stops in the Central Historic Area which will take you extremely close to specific restaurants, Museums and Plazas. Please note that the downtown loop of Vivabus is figure 8 with certain stops only available on the South or North Routes. Here are important stops for your stay at the Best Western Mirador: Hotel bus stop for either direction is Deza Y Ulloa. These are the South Route stops from hotel : Fuentes Danzarinas is the stop for the Templo de San Francisco de Asís, Casa Chihuahua, Palace of the Governors, 14 Coffees, the Hidalgo's Dungeon, Plaza de Angel, Grand Plaza of Chihuahua and the Chihuahua Barbaro - Day tours main ticket office. Juarez Station is the stop for the Casa Juarez or the Museum of the Republic. Casa Siglo XIX is just two blocks from the Juarez station on the Right hand side of the street. Casa Siglo XIX is a wonderful art museum downtown with wonderful free public restrooms near the Cathedral. The Sagrado Corazon Station will take you to the steps of the Sacred Heart Cathedral. If you walk up Avenue 20 de Noviembre two blocks to Calle 10a then take a right onto Calle 10a and walk two more blocks, you be at the entrance of the Pancho Villa Museum. These are the North Route stops from the hotel : The Quinta Gameros Station will take you right in front of the beautiful French Styled Quinta Gameros house completed in 1910. This is a one of the most beautiful homes in all of Mexico and is a must stop for those who love architecture. The Catedral Station is on the under pass directly below the Catedral de Chihuahua and its great plaza. Once you get off the bus, just walk up two flights of stairs and you are right next to the Cathedral. This is also the stop for the Quality Inn where the Chihuahua Barbaro tour bus departs 4 times a day. This is also a great stop to return to the hotel after your trip downtown. The Sor Juana Station, traveling north from the hotel, will take you to an Alsuper grocery store which will provide you all your food and convenience items needs on the trip. An Alsuper is very similar to the neighborhood Wal-Mart stores open in the US. The Alsuper has a great café for a quick affordable lunch and dinner as will as good prices on beer and wine for the room. They have weekly beer special and I was able to buy German Beck's and Sam Adams Cherry Wheat beer for 6 pesos a bottle during our stay. When finished shopping, take the south bus route back to the Hotel. VIVABUS Instructions : To ride the bus, you will need to use the Red Ticket machines in the Station to buy and charge your bus card. If you select the American Flag on the machine's screen, the instructions will switch to English for easy use. The Bus Cards will cost a one-time charge of 20 pesos. Next place the card in the slot and recharge the card with Mexican coins or bills. Remember to press the green checkmark after you enter your money and leave the card in place until the money has been deposited to the card. There is a little white card reader on a pole at the front of most stations which will let you check your balance. See my photos.
This Best Western is just a few blocks from the center of the city. It is easy walking distance to most tourist areas like the Angel, Catedral, Pancho Villa museum, or the shopping areas. The rooms are extremely large, with a dresser in the closet and very large shower. The TV has many English and Spanish stations.
Fortunately I just stayed one night in this hotel as I had business meetings the next day. The room has a good size but the beds are really hard (I could hardly sleep all night long), the A/C does a lot of noise and I heard some other weird noises during the night. Old decoration. Staff is nice.
We stayed for night as we had a business meeting early morning. As we went to bed the room next door had people drinking and being very loud! The walls are too thin that we could not sleep. There'a no cold water in the showe (burns!). I don't think they have king size beds as we were placed in a room with 2 twin size beds (which are hard as a rock, I usually like hard mattresses, but these are just extra hard and noisy). The area is not the best located as there's houses at the back with barking dogs all night. I would just recommend staying in one of the hotels on periferico de la juventud avenue as they're about the same price and way better and more comfortable. Also, hotel smells as it is an older facility.
I searched all over for a hotel in mu budget before our trip. I found the best deal straight from Best Western site where they offered a stay two nights get one free deal. The shower is big, gets hot fast and the water pressure is better than at home in Colorado. The picture of the bulky tv is not accurate as we had a flat screen, wall mounted in our room and in my husband's brother's room as well. We ordered room service twice. The fettucine was okay. Creamy but had strips of ham in it. Breakfast room service was delicious. We ordered red chilequiles and green chilequiles and also flourentine omelet. All delicious although green was too spicy, at least according to my Mexican brother in law. Cofee is available 24 hrs complimentary which is conveniant. The room is spacious and I especially loved the full mirrors on the closet sliding doors. We went to the pool late about 7-9 and it was us and one small family. The pool is lighted and heated. There is not a hot tub. The smaller square at front of pool is same water just not deep, for kids. Hotel staff was pleasant. Sometimes someone spoke english but other times had to order food, etc in spanish but no big deal. The location is very close to downtown. We even walked once we realized how close. Taxis are awesome and unbelievably fast. Overall, we will be back soon and will definately stay at Mirador again.
BW Chihuahua located closed to airport for a small location is well design with all amenities a Bussiness traveler require. Hotel staff friendly and professional. They will go the extra mile to accommodate you. On the hot chihuahua the pool is as an oasis. Close to hotel is a great restaurant. Pampas Alike a Brazilian eatery in the heart of Mexico. Excellent food. Great price and service. You may not go to chihuahua as a vacationing spot but if you go on Bussiness you may like this places. They have a Walmart you can ask for more under one roof right behind hotel. I know they are safety concern when traveling to Mexico. I didn't experience any problem as I visit and drove close to 1hr to Delicias Mexico another beautiful place.
Normally we stay in one of the smaller hotels when visiting Chihuahua. But this time we decided on trying out our very first Best Western. Fortunately we were not disappointed. The Mirador is an old-school 70s style hotel with the classic heated pool located in the middle of the complex. In usual Mexican fashion, tiles are the norm everywhere outside, and the room is carpeted in older patterns that show the date of the place. The service however is excellent. Not to mention that their breakfast buffet is by far one of the better ones out there these days. Room is big and the bathroom has a very large sized shower, easy enough for two people to fit in. Also, the in-room heating and cooling system works very well, too well almost. We had to try and cool down the room early on, even though it was December keeping the room warm was not a problem. Location is very good, we walked to downtown Chihuahua and the outdoor mall within ten minutes, maybe fifteen at the most. Even though there is some street construction going on currently, it still is easy to navigate our way south the half mile to all the action.
