Great location, right dead center in downtown Papantla. Only a few minutes ride in a cab to El Tajin. Cold AC and hot water. I gave 4 stars because the view we got was of the hallway and the you need to turn the water on about 25 minutes before you want to shower to let it get hot. Takes...

I stayed here only one night, arriving late (1am) and leaving early to visit El Tajin (taxi from Zocalo MXN70, taxi colectivo back for MXN15 per person). Check-in was quick and confusion over the room I was assigned (which had not been cleaned and prepared) was quickly resolved. The room's air-conditioning was effective and had a wall-mounted Tv which I...

papantla is a nice town that we enjoyed visiting. The Provincia Express is clean but basic, no restaurant for food and the window of our room could not be opened to ventilate. We ate at the nearby Plaza Pardo which was good and it has a lovely view of the parque/ zocalo

This hotel is perfectly placed overlooking the very active main plaza where the voladores can be viewed from a front balcony room. Very clean, staff is very helpful, the a/c works, all king beds in the front rooms. The hotel referred a local Totonac guide for a vanilla plantation/horticulture experiment green house for a 2 hour tour. The guide is...

This hotel is probably the best in town, with the best view if you get a plaza facing room. There is no hotel parking but if you are patient enough you can find free all day all night parking right next to the hotel. Very conveniently located near everything, shopping, restaurants, etc. Check supplies when you get your room, just...

We spent one night here before visiting El Tajin archeological site. The hotel was clean, right on the plaza and comfortable. My one word of caution is to request a room away from the lobby. It was very very noisy at night. From our bed, we could hear the front desk phone ringing and hear people talking. Other than that,...

Reading the reviews, I decided to stay there. Here's what I didn't like: Hard to find, no signs outside... it's on the first floor, no elevator and no one to help with the luggage No hotel parking or special rate, extra cost of over 200 Pesos nearby (100 pesos 9PM-9AM +15 pesos/hour before or after) Included breakfast was still not...

I moved to this hotel after the disappointment of El Tajin. At the same price, there is no comparison in quality. Provincia Express is much newer, nicer, more comfortable.

I would go back to the Hotel Provincia Express in Papantla in a heartbeat. It was about $50 USD / night, and had a prime location right on the zocalo. If you get a room facing the zocalo you'll be able to see the voladores fly out your window, which is a truly remarkable experience. The staff was super friendly...

Stayed there last December for 1 night while visiting El Tajín. Clean room and batthroom, Wifi included, and friendly staff. Probably the best bang for the buck in Papantla.
