We stayed for three nights. The first room we were given was downstairs behind the reception desk. We had read that the upstairs rooms were the best ones and asked about them but were told that they are very noisy. So we kept the room downstairs. The only window however opened onto a wall, which felt a bit claustrophobic, although... More

We stayed in this hotel due to its convenient location. Our purpose was to visit the ruins of Toniná which which are the main attraction here. If you want to have a good night sleep, select one of the back rooms as they are comfortable and quiet. If you want action, opt for the front balcony room over viewing the... More

We stayed 2 nights. In the centre of Ocosingo so fairly noisy until around 11pm. Nice balcony to sit and watch life go by. No English spoken. Staff were friendly and rooms were clean. Plenty of hot water and good water pressure so top marks for the shower although bathroom was on the small side. Would recommend for a short... More

Don't let the price scare you away. This is a classic older hotel: nice, clean, secure and right on the central plaza and it has the best restaurant in town. We stayed Friday night so it was a bit noisy, but what can you expect being right on the plaza. And being able to sit on the porch and watch... More

Don't let the unimpressive lobby scare you away. This hotel, on the square in Ocosingo is clean, costs 400 pesos, less than $30 for two, with secure parking, for a two bedroom unit with plenty of hot water and with a good wi fi connection. It is a perfect base for seeing Tonina ruins, which are worth seeing. Many do... More

I recently stayed at Central Hotel from December 11 - 12, 2014. I stayed one night in Ocosingo so I could visit the nearby Tonina ruins. The hotel has an excellent location adjacent to the main plaza and cathedral. Rooms are reasonably priced, very simple, and clean. Beds are comfortable. Showers and sinks have hot water. There's a TV in... More

my wife and I stayed 2 nights at this excellent, small hotel primarily to visit the Mayan ruins at Tonina. We thought the hotel was perfect, clean rooms, good food and a lovely terrace to sit on overlooking the zocalo ( called parque here) where onFriday night we were entertained by a very good marimba band. I would recommend breaking... More

I chose Hotel Central because the previously left positive reviews and wasn't disappointed. I paid 400 for a double room with a fan (actually two double beds and two fans); a room with air con would have been 500 pesos. Breakfast is not included; the restaurant downstairs has breakfasts from 60 pesos upwards. The bed was comfortable, shower was amazing,... More

After my brief overnight at Hospedaje Esmeralda I moved around the corner to the Central Hotel which was like the Hilton compared to HJ! The reception is small, as others have said, but there's nothing wrong with that, the welcome was wonderful. I arrived at 8am and they let me check in straight away. I chose a room on the... More
