Great location and people but .....

If you are looking for a great location and want to stay in what was a grand hotel this is your place. The Hotel itself (lobby, court yard, etc) are fine but the rooms are no more than a 2 at best.

Great location, and if you like your Hotel with character but are prepared to put up with some anoyances then I would recommend this Hotel. For the price it is perfectly adequate for an overnight night stay. Unfortunately hot water is still an issue, and the lack of a bedside light is annoying. Reception do not speak any Emglish but are helpful - my TV remote had to be changed three times before we found a workable model. Surprising number of English TV channels - also a bit of a problem with my booking and Internet connection, but it was all handled without "attitude". Unfortunately the night I stayed was extremely chilly so my room was just adequately warm. There was a gas heater on the wall, but very close to the Tv so as I had no Spanish I was reluctant to try it - I chose the TV. Note - no breakfast in Hotel and I did not see a suitable place nearby, but it was cold so maybe there is. All in all for the price and location I woulsdstay again for a night maybe two.

Buyer Beware: Two Cheers for the UrdiƱola

Posted Jan 7, 2010
The UrdiƱola is located in downtown Saltillo just blocks from the plaza. The hotel is old, having seen its glory days in the 1930's judging from the large photo in the lobby. Our stay in late December 2009 was tolerable, but I have four complaints. First, the parking garage is nearby but has no direct connection to the hotel. The visitor must roll/carry his luggage down the long ramp, out the door of the garage, down the sidewalk and into the hotel. Second, the toilet tank malfunctioned and required manual intervention. Third, the shower water was at best lukewarm at a time of the year when nighttime outside temperatures were close to freezing. Fourth, we were told by the night clerk that the restaurant at the San Jorge would give us a ten percent discount, but the restaurant refused. Not to worry, you can get good food and drink at the Flor y Canela on Allende(?), and great food at the Tabacayo(?) on Hidalgo, both just blocks from the hotel. Oh well, at least the price was right.

Visit Saltillo- great location!

Posted Nov 25, 2009 on Hotels.com
The location is excellent- centrally located. You walk out of the hotel and are in the middle of a shopping area, 4 blocks to large park. We were there for a Saturday night and there were a lot of people out and about. The hotel is charming, rooms are small, shower could use a better cleaning but, since there is no hot water, we weren't going to use the shower anyway : ) I will definitely stay here again, if I was going to visit for only one night- I do need a hot water shower!
