Currency Exchange

When we purchased our reservations online at for our stay at Hotel Impala in Queretaro, we opted for the breakfast that was included in the price.

This was a wise decision!

Not only did we not have to hurry out of our rooms because we were hungry, but we also discovered that the restaurant - Suite 18 - which was located downstairrs, also had a bar with botanas.

All of this turned out to be a "steal-of-a-deal" - See below.

It turns out that Suite 18 has 3 seating areas.

This is outdoor seating downstairs in front of the hotel. There is a restaurant upstairs, and a bar just inside the entranceway of the hotel.

This is the entranceway of the Hotel. To the right (out of view) is the bar portion of Suite 18.

Upstairs in the walkway is the restaurant.

Elevator is to the left and the check-in desk is directly to the right across the tile walkway.

Suite 18 Restaurant was open for breakfast from 7 am to 10 am.

Daily we arrived and ordered breakfast from a variety of choices. Freshly baked bread, with butter and jam was served along with our meal.

The most sweet and delicious fresh fruit with lime was also included, or one could have ordered juice.

This plate has watermelon, papaya and cantaloupe.

I often ordered a cheese omelet, but you could add bacon or ham to the omelet or order Huevos Rancheros instead.

Bacon and eggs were also offered.

Refried beans and a couple of chips accompanied this breakfast.

Believe me this was plenty of food!

One could sit upstairs and order drinks, snacks or a meal for dinner.

The view is of the Alameda Park, just across the street from our hotel.

Chamorro at Suite 18, Hotel Impala, Queretaro, Mexico

One evening we decided to stay in and sit at the downstairs bar.

Billy had a draft beer and I had a copita of tequila.

Promptly the waiter came by and asked if we wanted some botanas. Apparently, we looked a little confused, so he explained that they were "on the house."





We were presented with this chamorro - a pork shank cooked to falling-off-the-bone - in a deliciously mild red sauce.

Think "pot roast" except it is pork.

This is one of the specialties of Mexico that we truly love.

True to his word, we only paid for our drinks, and we left him a generous tip.

Pricing of rooms at Hotel Impala, Queretaro, Mexico

These are the walk-in prices for staying at Hotel Impala.

As we mentioned, we purchased our reservations online through and paid 833 Pesos per night (about $42USD) which included breakfast.

Add that to the botanas we received at the convenient Suite 18's downstairs bar, and the price was remarkable.

Would we return?
