Mision Argento Zacatecas3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This hotel has the best location in Zacatecas and considering this, the cost is very convenient. However if you are planning on getting some rest or spending some time at the hotel, I would not recommend it. Most of the rooms have interior windows to the corridors, so it is extremely noisy, rooms are small and furniture is outdated. There is a reduced number of rooms facing main street and offering gorgeous views of the cathedral. Breakfast is very good. Facilities are kept clean. Staff is very professional, too bad the small old building does not help. There is a small parking on site, however is used mostly to load / unload luggage and cars are taken to an external parking located within walking distance.
I stayed here for 4 nights in November. Here's the gist: PROs: - Location. This hotel is right in the middle of downtown, easily within walking distance of just about everything. - Price: This is the cheapest of the downtown hotels, rated as 3.5 stars . . . I'd concede to 3 stars, but 3.5 is exaggeration. But the hostels nearby are almost the same price, so if you're looking for a cheap non-hostel accommodation, this is it. I paid $40/night in the off-season with online reservations made over a month in advance. -There are several restaurants, patio cafés, bars, convenience stores, plazas, museums, churches, and the market (avenue of bargain stores) in the immediate vicinity. - I booked with booking.com and checked "free breakfast included", thinking it was continental. It turned out to be the buffet breakfast, which I thought was good. - Unlike most breakfasts which are over by 9, this breakfast was available until 11 or 12. There were about 6 hot dishes that varied slightly each day - eggs, beans, chilaquiles being the staples. Other dishes included rajas, nopales, potatoes, cubed chicken in a tomato-based sauce, etc. - There was a made-to-order omelette and quesadilla station. - Good coffee, fresh juices - the natural orange juice was delicious - Cereal, fruit, yogurt, bread, muffins - The buffet breakfast service on 3 of 4 days of our stay was friendly and efficient. - We were given evaluation forms at the end of breakfast on 2 of 4 days, which is a good sign that the management wants to ensure quality and friendly service. - The rooms were clean and the maid service was diligent. - The inside hallways had tile flooring and some rooms opened to a tiny balcony- type ledge overlooking the ivy spilling down an open space that continued down to the first floor of rooms (floor 4). - Reception was friendly and accommodated us with a room change without blinking an eye. -Check in and check out was expedient and many of the receptionists spoke both English and Spanish. - WiFi was an open signal, and was truly offered throughout the hotel, but from midday to evening, when everyone was using it, it was considerably slower. - The toilet and shower water pressure was decent (for Mexico) and hot water was available and steady. -The bed had four fluffy pillows, and clean, crisp, white sheets, and a duvet. The bed was a pillowtop, though the mattress underneath was the typical firm mattress common in Mexico. CONs: - Location: This hotel is right on the main avenue Hidalgo, so it is surrounded by bars and taverns and loud street noise. It was extremely loud day and night (as are ALL the hotels in el Centro - downtown). - The first room we were given faced the inside corridor with no windows to the outside. No windows at all except the bathroom, which opened to the hallway. This would've been a reasonably quiet room except that it was on the first floor (floor 4), with the parking garage just below. Therefore, even though our room was tucked away in a corner, all we heard was rolling suitcases, people talking loudly and calling out to each other late at night (midnight to 1:30am) and early in the morning as they left (5am to 9am). This may ordinarily have been minor, but since a tour group stopped over that night, I think this traffic multiplied exponentially. - In addition, this room was a very small room with a king bed (Even though our reservation was for 2 full beds). - The room was musty, had a chemical smell (from cleaning), and no ventilation. - I think our reservation was changed to accommodate a large tour group which arrived that night, clogging the front lobby for hours. For this reason, we did not request a room change at that time. - The tour group was loud, and took over the entire lobby and restaurant tables in the morning during the buffet. When we finally grabbed a table, we did not receive any service, as it was just too busy and chaotic. I got up to pour my own coffee, which I didn't mind at all. It was the invasion of space that I minded. - After the tour group left, we requested a different room, on a different floor, with a balcony. Since none were available, we then requested a window. (There are few balcony rooms facing the main street. Request in writing at the time of your reservation to try to get one, but be aware that they open onto the main, busy, bustling avenue). We received a similarly small room on the next floor (5) with a window to the street behind the hotel, which was very loud as well. During the day, there was construction nearby, the water/sewage trucks would come by and pump water for about an hour, marching bands would play in the street below, etc. At night, a nearby bar featured drunken collective singing of popular corridos and rock en español, which continued until about 2am. *This type of noise is common in hotels that are smack in the center of town. If you want relative quiet, bring earplugs. If you want real quiet, stay in a more isolated hotel. - Despite the window to the street (There was no screen, which is common in Mexico), very little airflow entered the room. In the mornings, the entire closed window was wet with condensation from the cold night outside and lack of airflow inside. - The room furniture and carpet is old and dingy. -The bathtub/shower was small and the step down to the floor out of the tub was a large one. The towels were a bit old and rough, but they were large and clean. - There's no heat or A/C in the rooms. In November, the weather is chilly at night, but the rooms were fairly warm. There was a heat lamp in the first floor corridor. -We were only given one room key. In all, I felt the pros outweighed the cons; mainly, that the location couldn't be beat, and I enjoyed that breakfast every morning. It's a good budget option and I'd stay there again if I ever returned to Zacatecas. Hope that helps! Enjoy Zacatecas!
I had a wonderful experience at this hotel. It is incredibly well situated, right in the downtown of Zacatecas. The hotel itself was clean and comfortable and had great staff. Maira, from the front desk, was particularly exceptional. She was so friendly and helpful, she gave me useful information during my stay there. She even assisted me when I had trouble calling my family in Canada. I would return to this hotel in a heartbeat.
The location of this hotel is right in the heart of the city. I did love that part. It's also right next door to an open restaurant that sells the traditional Gorditas also listed on trip advisor. I would rate the rooms 1 to 2 stars. The furniture & decor in my room @ 705 was very outdated. The lobby area and restaurant I would give 4 stars. The area was very clean. Much more nicely dated. The staff was very friendly. The food was delicious! Every am they had cafe de la hoya that was perfectly sweetend. Their buffet was reasonably priced at about 8.00 for breakfast. You will love the fresh organic juices. I would stay again but be sure to ask for a room with a balcony facing the main street so you can enjoy a bit of the cities shenanigans taking place outside.
This hotel is located in the heart of Zacatecas, just steps from the best parts of the old city. The rooms, hotel, services, etc. are all pretty standard -- definitely good enough. Weighing price, location, and quality I would rate this a great option.
The hotel is on avenida hidalgo - the main street of the historic city centre just next to the famous church. Most oft the sightseeing spots are in walking distance. Price and room were ok, service good. Staff was friendly and helpful. Neighborhood is very safe - no problem for me as a woman to walk the streets ar night alone.
We traveled between the week of Christmas and New Years, so we should have known what to expect. Lots of tourists, like ourselves in the city. I only had two problems, and not that big. First with traffic being so bad, we passed the parking lot and had to go all the way around the block, which took us about 15 minutes. When we made it inside, the parking area was very small...at the most I would say maybe 15 cars would fit, I think that's still to many, we found 1 parking spot open and didn't move our car again. Our second problem was with check-in, we had called the day before to see what time we could check in and they told us 1pm. We got there at 2:25pm, and our room was still not ready for one more hour. We had no problem with that, and decided to walk around the area to get familiar with it. I have to say after the parking and check in hiccups, Im so glad that I booked this place. I have a teenager and two young boys (5 &6), who like to be out and about. This location was great for us, when my boys wanted to rest, we could go back and rest, and go back out when we were ready. The pictures the people post do not do this hotel justice. We had room 509, and it was clean, updated, and comfortable. The room also had a couch, that we were not expecting. The beds were comfy, and clean, as well as the restrooms. Yes the hallways were a tad noisy, but only with our visitors and not street noise. The last day we were there we decided to have breakfast there at the hotel. The staff was great even with having a buffet style breakfast. They would tend to you before you had a second to think about it. Great service from all of them. Again, this location is great, just be prepared to be in traffic during the holiday seasons. Otherwise I would recommend this in a heart beat, price was fine for us. Your not paying over $75.00 a night, so Im not sure what people are complaining about. Great place, if you want to walk to your sites. Plenty of tours just a few steps away from the front of the hotel.
The only good thing about this hotel is its location and staff. The facilities are old and ugly, I would only recommend it if you are looking just for a place to sleep and you don't care about the rest. I would say is expensive for what you get.
Not the best price value for what you get. It is a bit expensive for the kind of hotel. The rooms are acceptable but old. No AC, just a ceiling fan. Bathrooms are ok but old. However, the location is the best you can get! Located on the main street (Av. Hidalgo) you can walk wherever you want and enjoy the colonial downtown. Staff is nice and very friendly.
Hi friends!!!! I would like to say "Hola amigos!!!" to all the stuff of Hotel. First of all I stayed here during the big festival "Festival Zacatecas del Folklor Internacional - 2013" with the group of Roumania. I was very pleasantly surprised by this hotel and I recommend it with the highest confidence to everyone who visits Zacatecas. I will never forget you! All the stuff was great! The rooms were clean and airy, the food was awesome... I hope I will visit you soon... Muchos saludos desde Rumania :*
