In this historic structure, each room is unlike any other but all provide modern comfort in a colonial-style setting.

The outdoor complex features a heated swimming pool, sun loungers and parasols laid out ready for use. A snack bar is also available here. The unique traditional La Guelaguetza festival offers dances from the seven regions of the state, the Vientocon band and its 14 musicians, and a substantial evening buffet with typical traditional dishes. The fiesta unfolds every Friday (more often in high season) on the stage in the hotel's 16th century chapel.
Guests may serve themselves at the breakfast buffet. At lunchtime and in the evenings guests may select dishes from an ŕ la carte menu. Bed and breakfast is bookable.
