Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Seven Crown Malecón

Paseo Alvaro Obregón 1710, Malecón, La Paz, Baja California Sur 23000, México See on Map

This very reasonable, modern, minimalist hotel is perfectly situated to one side of the malecón's action. Take off from your hotel room for nearby cafés and restaurants, and prime people-watching. Hotel Seven Crown's rooms are comfortable, if a little plain, and come complete with a small refrigerator and extra sink. Other advantages here: there's a small bar on the roof from which you can enjoy a view of the bay; no one ever seems to use the small hot tub next to the bar; and rooms have petite, private balconies. Book your excursions with the travel agency representative in the lobby.

room

Rooms are clean, comfortable, and feature stylish contemporary designs, with minimalist décor and relatively monochromatic color schemes.

bathroom

Makeup stations not only include sinks and mirrors, but wall-mounted hair dryers.

lobby

Seven Crown’s malecón facing lobby showcases a chic appearance, from its sleek gray couches and gleamingly polished floors to eclectic art objects and a colorful mural behind the front desk that shows the sun setting over the bay.

Concierge service is available in the lobby for booking local attractions like swimming with whale sharks, and boat tours to uninhabited Isla Espíritu Santo.

pool

Travelers for whom a swimming pool is a signature amenity will prefer Seven Crown Centro (on Revolución de 1910, between Hidalgo and Morelos), as the malecón location does not have a pool.

dining

The on-site restaurant and bar, with their stunning views of the bay of La Paz, are currently undergoing extensive remodeling, and are not scheduled to reopen before February 2018.

LOCATION

Getting Around

Downtown shopping, dining and drinking attractions are within easy walking distance, thanks to Seven Crown Malecón’s superb central location. For trips to gorgeous area beaches like Pichilingue, Balandra, or Tecolote, or for road trips to regional destinations, rental cars are the preferred option. Bus service to Todos Santos and Los Cabos is also available, however, from the nearby bus station (three blocks away on Paseo Álvaro Obregón).

Restaurants

The tastiest seafood tacos in Baja California Sur’s capital city are served up by Hermanos González (the González Brothers), who maintain a popular street corner stand at Calles Madero and Degollado. Rancho Viejo also serves up excellent Mexican comfort food fare, and does it 24-hours a day (Calle Márquez de León at Domínguez).

Bars

La Cabaña, the nightclub at nearby Hotel Perla (two blocks away on Paseo Álvaro Obregón), is a mecca for music and dancing on Saturday nights. Las Varitas (5-minute walk to Calle Independecia at Belisario Domínguez) is another late night favorite, with Mexican music and lively atmosphere offered into the wee hours, Thursday through Saturday.

WHY WE LIKE IT

Seven Crown boasts the best business class hotels in downtown La Paz. The malecón property is particularly well situated: at the midpoint of the malecón paralleling main boulevard, with spectacular views of the bay and beyond. The recently remodeled rooms offer an upgraded level of comfort, while rates remain shockingly modest.
