Really lovely courtyard, which you can see in travelers' reviews, full of birds. Big suites, with "living room" area including fridge, stove, and sink. Right in the middle of the historic colonial center, with beautiful old buildings and squares - just a couple blocks from the Malecon in one direction, and Plazuela Machado in the other, both being hubs of social activity. Lots of good restaurants within a short walking distance, including El Presidio, Hector's Bistro and El Aljibe de San Pedro. A great part of town to feel a part of "real" Mexico in Mazatlan, as opposed to the more modern touristy Golden Zone area to the north (but easy to flag down an inexpensive pulmonia for a short ride there), and also close to Playa Sur where you can catch a boat to the long, laid-back beach of Isla de la Piedra (highly recommended). It's not fancy, as the price attests, but clean, comfortable, and convenient - even charming. My only warning is if you are someone who finds it hard to sleep, or hard to get back to sleep once you wake, there can outbursts of music from passing cars at all hours, probably especially on weekends and holidays when people are out partying.
The location is amazing! there are plenty of restaurants, bars, clubs, live music and the beach is 5 mins walking away. The area is very Noisy so if you are sensitive to noise I recommend ear plugs. Veronica the hotel manager is super nice and helpful with everything you need!
This is our 2nd year here live-in it has large rooms our room was open concept with all amenities there is no oven there is everything else great staff they speak very little English the manager Veronica can understand most all and speak a little. We have wanted for nothing during our stay here usually 2 - 3 months fridge ,stove , dishes ,pots & pans linens - free washer & dryer on property lots of music in evening from restaurants across the street many great eating places within minutes walking stores the open market fresh fruit and vegetables hundreds of shops all withing minutes of this lovely hotel.
We really enjoyed our 5 night stay at the Melville. The location is ideal for walking these old streets in any direction. The plaza is only one block away where numerous cafes await you. If you are lucky you will hear the orchestra warming up at the Angela Peralta Theater while you sip your margarita in the sunshine. You are even luckier to hang out at the plaza on the weekend when live music, breakdancers, tourists and local families gather to enjoy the evening. Or walk three blocks west to the malacon to watch surfers, fishing boats, beach volleyball and hear Banda. You may tire of Banda. Our room was very clean, nicely furnished and comfortable. The hotel was fully occupied, but we were unaware of other guests. A parakeet in a cage just beyond our window kept a cheerful tune while we napped. We could hear walkers going by, bicycle tires on tile and church bells. Terrific restaurants were aplenty and close by. It was all good.
This hotel has an old and a new part. Old part has a lovely little garden an furnished in traditional mexican warm colours. You hear nothing of the city when coming inside. Great service with laundry. All are apartments so as far as I understood breakfast is not served but ålenty if great breakfast places jusr across the street. We got an apartment in the newly rebuilt part and it was excellent. New kitchen, spacey rooms. Good shower and toilet. We were there during carneval and still slept good. Very close to beach and central square. Really excellent, look no further.
We've been coming to Mazatlán for 30 years, usually to the touristy 'Golden Zone'. The last couple of years we've been dividing our time between there and Centro Historico. We've already booked for next January at Hotel Melville. It is a historical structure that has been remodeled into suites- most are handicap accessible- with kitchenettes and opening on a central courtyard. It's two short blocks from Plazuela Machado, the HEART of Centro. 3 blocks the other way is the beach at Olas Altas (High Waves). There are restaurants, bars, coffee shops and all the accoutrements of urban living all around. Now, that said, there is music and some traffic outside the hotel. The old, historic windows don't hold out much of the outside sound, but it quiets down significantly at midnight- except during Carnival (February).
We went to Mazatlán for Dia de los Muertos, so we wanted to stay close to Plaza Machada. The location of the Melville was perfect...two minutes to the plaza and less than five to Olas Altas Beach and the malecon. So much that we wanted to see/do was within walking distance. Also, we loved staying in a real neighborhood, where we could spend time talking to the wonderful locals. I tend to research things to death, so there were no surprises when we arrived at the Melville. The building is old, but lovingly cared for, and the staff are great. We had a deluxe one bedroom unit (#16). The unit was spotless, everything worked, and other than the fact that the bed was a little hard for my liking (no complaints from my husband), it was exactly what we had hoped for. If you are a light sleeper, I would suggest bringing earplugs. The restaurant/bar on the corner across from the Melville had live music going on outdoors several nights we were there, until almost 1 a.m. There is currently much street/sidewalk construction going on in old Mazatlán, in preparation for a huge tourism convention taking place in April. We didn't have any issues with it, but it is something to be aware of.
Very good location. Good communication with the manager. Clean. Bathroom, bed and kitchen confortable. I think downtown area business need some advise about compatibility land use and services. Music in some restaurant-bar around needs performed indoors...but when you can not to sleep you can enjoy like a nice or romantic “serenata”. My husband and I really enjoyed the area in old downtown and The Melville Hotel. We will definitely return here.
In the historic centre of Mazatlan, a short walk from the Olas Atlas beach, cathedral and market, this is a great location, much nicer than the Zona Dorada. The hotel is run in an extremely relaxed and friendly manner, it doesn't really feel like a hotel. The building is extraordinary with high ceilings, exposed wooden beams and artwork. The rooms are around a central courtyard which is very relaxing. The only thing that lets it down is the lack of sleep. The old windows are not soundproof and there was extremely loud music blasting out of nearby bars, passing pulmonia (open air taxis) and, strangely, the car parking lot opposite. There are reviews here saying don't stay at the weekend because of this. Well, if you're jet lagged like me and want to get to bed early, don't stay any day as the music lasted until about 11pm. Even with earplugs it was loud. The curtains also don't keep out the light, and the bed could be a bit softer in my opinion.
We loved the location, it is located on a quiet peaceful street 2 blocks away from the Plazuela Machado, which is a great place to eat and people watch. The rooms, which are each named after famous authors, all open to a lovely central courtyard with a fountain water feature surrounded with beautiful plants and birds. They had a well stocked lending library and Each room has a table and chairs located just outside your front door that overlooks the courtyard, a great place to relax or do some reading. The air conditioning worked well and the room had a nice sized refrigerator, a microwave, coffee pot and sparse kitchen supplies. The hotel was not full when we were there and when we asked if it was possible to extend our check out time by an hour they said stay as long as we needed, no problem. We will definitely return here.
