We were researching a place to stay as part of a long road trip, and Hotel Mision Orizaba filled that need! It is clean, well maintained nd with a wonderful staff!
It is also in the center of town, so many things are in walking distance...
We liked it so much we even stayed there on our return trip home...
One small 'down side' is that the us,ding is old (although beautiful), so our shower did leak and drip during the night, and the door would 'stuck' ... But these are minor hangs...
Would definitely stay here again
This charming hotel in the middle of the city has small, clean rooms arranged around a picturesque courtyard. Our stay was very comfortable and the staff was helpful. The food in the hotel's restaurant was adequate, but not great.
Just what you need if you travel for business. You can find many things to improve but considering what you pay, it is ok. you probably will prefer to use stairs tan elevator. only restaurant people need to improve their service, the rest of the staff excellent
We recently had the pleasure of spending three nights at the Hotel Mision. This place has it all. Clean and comfortable rooms, a nice menu, knowledgeable bar staff and a great location, four blocks from the heart of the city.
From the upper floors of the courtyard, you can see the snow capped peak of Citlaltepetl, the third highest mountain in North America.
Apart from being clean and efficient, this hotel also projects a friendly atmosphere. We had nice chats with the Gloria in house keeping and the restaurant and bar staff remembered our preferences.
In addition, the room rates are great. The restaurant is reasonably priced but if you want to do even better just step out onto the street and you will find great street food for a few pesos.
Orizaba is a very attractive small city with lots to do and see and the Hotel Mision served us very well.
We made a reservation the night before arrival on the internet, tried to do it on the hotel web page but it would not cooperate so we used a hotel booking site.
Reservation available when we arrived. Check in friendly. A temporary charge was made to the credit card (so we don't run without paying). We were placed in a room on the first floor (like on 2) of the 3 level hotel that surrounds a central covered courtyard with views to the dome and bell tower of Nuestra Senora del Carmen church. The room faced the main road (Highway 150 business route) and its noisy and there is little sound insulation from the entry door (zero) and the interior patio area outside the room. We seem to becoming expert at choosing noisy hotel rooms. The road noise lessened after 11 PM and increased again at 6 AM.
We asked at the desk if they had a city map. Nope, said they would print one and bring it to the room, never happened for some reason they could not do it. Seemed a bit strange for a hotel in one of the Magic Towns of Mexico promoting tourism. Later we walked down the street to another hotel and they had a map and information book.
Two firm but comfortable double beds (the reservation specified one king - no problem), linens and towels OK, air conditioning (but it was cold and the unit provided no heat), small flat screen TV, large shower (hot water barely hot enough), ironing board & iron, coffee maker, alarm clock radio, writing desk with chair, safe (very small), tiled floors, 2 free small bottles of water, free Wi-Fi but is very slow when it did work in the room. The room decor is warm and welcoming, nice colours with some wall art.
It was lunch time on our arrival so we ate in the hotel lobby restaurant. Nice setting, views of the inner courtyard (where smoking is allowed) service just OK, food the same.
The hotel is an OK Centro choice, but ask for a room not on the main road.
