Har­ness­ing a by­gone era — a time when Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera were in the throes of their tem­pes­tu­ous mar­riage and cre­at­ing the art that would see them be­come le­gendary — the Best Western Ma­jes­tic re­tains many of the his­toric touches be­stowed on it when it was built in 1937. At­ten­dants still op­er­ate the el­e­va­tor and the cen­tral court­yard show­cases the stone work, carved wood, bronze and “ta­lav­era” pot­tery of Pue­bla. Look­ing over the Zocalo, you’ll be right in the heart of the his­toric cen­tre when you stay in this 100 per cent smoke-free ho­tel. Head up to the rooftop La Ter­raza Restau­rant for the best view. Tap into the 24-hour concierge ser­vice for lo­cal tips. There’s free bot­tled wa­ter in your room and while there is no air­con, an elec­tric fan can be brought to your room.
