Hotel Real de Cervantes

Whatever it is, tequila probably can't fix it, but it's worth a shot! - Jimmy Buffett

On our trip up to the Mexican Highlands area to pursue the tasting of some of the best tequilas in the world, our first stop was Atotonilco El Alto.

It was here that we had plans to visit the legendary Siete Leguas distillery, but first, we had to find a hotel room.

Not far from the Plaza we found Hotel de Cevantes. Even though we arrived on a Tuesday, the hotel seemed to be booked. However, Norma at the desk leafed through her reservation book and found us a lovely room on the second floor.

It would only be available for a few nights, which was perfect.

Beautiful stone, slate and wrought iron steps led upstairs to our room.

The hallway down to our room

To the left here, is an open style sun-roofed area to add some light. You can see another sunroof to the right further down the hallway.

The hotel was clean and quiet.

Our hotel room

We are paying 690Pesos per night for this large room, a little over $36USD. The table and chairs were right by a window that led out to the sunroof area, so there was natural light in our room.





You can see the armoire and there was a dresser stand and mirror to the right of the bed, outside the photo.

Plenty of room to place our clothing!

Our bathroom

Our bathroom had a marble sink, a hair dryer on the wall, and lots of hot water in the shower.

Soap, shampoo and cream rinse were on a little wooden stand by the sink.

This is a view of our room from the bathroom door.

The dresser stand and mirror is shown here, and in the mirror, you can see our table, bottles of water, and the curtains over the sun lighted window.

The beds were firm, service downstairs was good, and the location was great.
