In fact, first I must say two positive things about it. The location is great, two or three blocks from the Central Park, and the price is low, 350 pesos or 27 dollars. Now, I don't know why this terrible, uncomfortable, noisy motel, not an hotel definitely is number 7 in Trip Advisor ratings, I believe there must be several...

Posada Media Luna is in a perfect location, on a quiet street just a half-block away from the centro's pedestrian-only street, with so many restaurants and shops. The owners are fabulous and they are very pet-friendly. We travel with our dog and it's hard to find hotels that accept them, and here they are welcomed. They have a nice kitchen...

Hotel la media luna is located at the entrance to the city, close to the bus station. It is close to the main street, and close to many restaurants. It is not close to the open air market. The rooms are ok,

Hi, thank you for taking time in reviewing our property. I'd just like to point out that the hotel is located downtown, not at the entrance of the city. We are only 3 blocks away from the main place (some 300 meters), and a few meters from one of the main pedestrian streets crossing the historical centre. The open marketplace...

I want to start my review by emphasising my disapointment when I saw the Hotel. Firts of all, this is not a hotel, this is not much better than a hostel. I stayed there in September 2013 and this accommodation was the only downside of my visit to San Cristobal de las Casas. I made the reservation (for five days)...

We got what we expected and Can only recommend the hotel. It has all the things we required for two nights. The Best part of this place is that it is situated in the center and all is in walking distance. The staff is great and ask Jesus to give u a map of town and he Will describe everything.

Although, we missed our first night (partly due to our fault and mother nature (read: thunderstorms)), once we arrived, it was a nice place to settle into for a good night sleep. It is only a few steps to the beginning of the walking market on Miguel Hidalgo, which leads you directly to the historical city center, the Cathedral, and...

Media Luna is located close to all the downtown sites of interest. It is a simple hotel with good value for the price. The owners arranged a taxi to pick us up in Tuxtla because our flight arrived late. The owner was helpful and friendly.

I have nothing to complain about the room itself, but rather wanted to give some advice on the pricing of the rooms since there are no prices available on the website. I contacted the posada for a price list in march and was quoted 55usd a night for an ensuite double room in July. When I got there I inadvertently...

Hi, First of all I want to remark that I was not embarrassed, but rather astonished, as evidently you had been checking all over a place which was supposed to be reserved to employees only. Anyway, I thought I had explained you the situation when we spoke, but maybe I couldn’t make me explain very well in a foreign language....

Decent hotel of the budget-mid range style. Nice sized rooms and bathroom. Really friendly staff. Some sheets were a little old but not a major problem. Strangely, there is no late checkout which is difficult when you're waiting for an overnight bus.

This hotel is a good choice for central San Cristobal. The location is excellent, right by the arch and just a few minutes walk to the main square. It is also within easy walking distance of the ADO bus station, which is very handy. We never had any trouble with noise, as the street that the hotel is located on...

“The beds sizes are more European than US. The Queen sized beds seemed closer to Double bed size - if you are large (like my spouse and me) you would probably be more comfortable getting a room that has two beds - which is what we did.”

“If you have heavy bag,s ask for a room on the first floor. There are no elevators and usually it's ladies at the check-in desk. However, if you don't mind the climb to the third floor, which is where we stayed, then you don't have to worry about people walking above you...the floors are tiled.”
