Where to Stay in Downtown Puebla

We recently took our very first trip to Puebla and partnered with Palacio San Leonardo as our hotel of choice to rest our exploring selves each night! Since we have never been to Puebla and wanted to explore the downtown area, we wanted to stay somewhere comfortable, in a walkable area of town, and close to the city center.

LOCATION- The location of Palacio San Leonardo is incredible. The hotel is situated about one block off the the main Zocalo in Puebla. This was really nice when we wanted to venture around town and needed a quick, refreshing break in our room-the hotel was always super close.

THE HOTEL ITSELF- The hotel is an old home and the owner of the home is actually still the owner of the hotel! The pictures simply do not do this place justice. From the moment we entered, we were greeted by two grand staircases and a beautiful chandelier overhead! We truly felt special in this gorgeous place. We also explored a few of the banquet rooms, in which a lot of the furniture, artwork, and decorations are all original from the home! It felt like we were wandering around a castle.

THE STAFF- From the moment we stepped out of the car and into the hotel, we were treated with such awesome service. I think this is one of the distinguishing factors of this place-everyone was so kind to us. The gentleman at the door, the ladies at the front desk, the room cleaners, and the waitstaff in the restaurant all went above and beyond to treat us so very nicely!

THE BREAKFAST- We opted for the buffet breakfast on our last morning in town. The cost was $195 pesos per person. This was one of the better breakfasts we have ever had! They had ham, sausage, sautéed veggies, fruit and yogurt, coffee, orange juice, and of course sweet bread all out and ready for us as we walked in. Once seated, they handed us a little menu with several breakfast options to order from. In my opinion, this was the best of both worlds for a buffet! Sometimes I get turned off from buffets because the food has been sitting out and can become a bit soggy. Not the case here! The main dishes are all made to order. Between the two of us, we had eggs in mole sauce which were incredible, by the way, chilaquiles with chicken, and French toast. (I know-we can eat a lot!) The food here was really top notch. We could immediately tell that the quality of the food was unlike anything we have ever been served at any hotel. We definitely think the breakfast buffet is totally worth every peso!

OVERALL EXPERIENCE- We would highly recommend staying at Palacio San Leonardo in downtown Puebla! From the beautiful hotel itself and the kind hospitality of the team throughout, to the very best location we could have asked for, we had an absolute great experience and are so happy we finally got to make the short trip south to Puebla!

Keep it Kinetic!
