HOTEL
LA QUINTA LUNA

 Printer friendly version

 
 

A small, elegant and exquisite hotel with seven rooms, located in Cholula, Puebla.

The hotel is located in a beautiful 17th-century mansion that originally belonged to a prehispanic indigenous nobility, which has been rescued by the Cardenas Gonzalez de Cossio family in an effort to preserve history and share it with the guests in its new incarnation as a hotel. Deemed a historic monument by the National Institute of History and Anthropology, La Quinta Luna proudly shows its original structure in Cholula, the oldest living city on the American continent.

A grand arcade of illuminated arches unfolds before you and welcomes you within. A focal point of the estate, and testimony to the family’s commitment to their heritage, is the lofty library built with 400-year-old wooden beams rescued during the restoration. It houses a rare collection of 3,000 books covering subjects from design to economics and Mexican artists to historical books of colonial and pre-Hispanic Mexico.

Against a backdrop of thick adobe walls and high beamed ceilings, guest rooms and public spaces contrast the traditional with modern furnishings and artwork, lending color, form and serenity.

This beautiful home exudes culture and spirit and provides the perfect hideaway for complete relaxation after a day spent exploring mystical Cholula or the vibrant city of Puebla. From the haven that is La Quinta Luna, you are minutes away from many sites of historical, religious or artistic interest. In addition to the magnificent architecture, one can observe the second-highest volcano in Mexico, walk a few blocks to one of the largest pyramids in the world or take a short drive to downtown Puebla’s exciting zocalo, lined with talavera ceramic shops and other interesting Mexican handcrafts.

As a member of the Alliance, La Quinta Luna promotes sustainable tourism by implementing the principles of the alliance, participating in the qualification of the personnel of the hotel, informing the guests on the sites patrimony, supporting community development around World Heritage sites Furthermore, the hotel is encouraging the employees to support the local community and the United Nations’ efforts.
