The Los Faroles sign
We have stayed at a couple
of hotels in
Comitan over the years, but the place we have stayed most often is Los
Faroles, meaning The Lanterns.
We enjoy Los Faroles' close proximity to the
Plaza or Parque Central. Lots of activity goes on at the Plaza day and night.
There are restaurants, Cafe/Bars, street vendors, musicians, banks, pharmacies,
travel agencies and stores selling all sorts of items.
It's never boring at the Plaza.
Los Faroles has three
suites and about 10 other rooms for rent. The suites go for 650Pesos a night or
about $36USD. Because we were staying for five nights, we asked for a discount
and received the price of 450Pesos nightly, about $25USD.
Suites have a sink, stove, refrigerator and
eating counter. All rooms have WiFi, Cable TV and access to clean drinking water
in the courtyard entrance. Maids come in daily to clean.
A bedroom in a suite
The rooms were clean and spacious and the
beds were decently firm. Bath towels were provided as was soap and shampoo.
We had trouble with our hot water in the
shower and the manager had it fixed. Also, our refrigerator did not work, so
Adolfo replaced it immediately. He was very amenable to our needs.
View from the 2nd story
down into the courtyard
The morning sunshine is
wonderful and comes into the rooms deliciously.
Here you see the tiny
courtyard from the 2nd story along with the little path that is the entrance
into the hotel. Pure drinking water is in the small pathway in the shade, near
the public sink for washing your hands.
We paid for 5 nights at 450Pesos each night,

Just a side mention.
The two rooms in the front section of the
hotel, the ones where you can see the windows here in the photos, are lovely
rooms and very spacious. Unfortunately, we stayed in one of them for several
nights on one visit and we have to say the road noise was terrible. We would
recommend one of the suites or one of the rooms upstairs instead.
