*<see name="Hacienda El Lencero" alt="" address="Carretera Xalapa-Veracruz Km 10, Xalapa" directions="" phone="no phone" url="" hours="" price="" lat="" long="">Occasionally called the Museo de Muebles (Furniture Museum), this country estate 14km (8 3/4 miles) southeast of the town center was for 14 years (1842-56) the home of Antonio López de Santa Anna, the 11-time president of Mexico. Here he retreated from the world, though on occasion he opened his doors to receive notable visitors. Furniture from Mexico, Europe, and Asia fills the rooms, illustrating the cosmopolitan tastes of Mexico's upper classes during the 19th century. Among the notable pieces is the leader's bed, embellished with the national emblem (an eagle holding a serpent in its beak). </see>

'''Hostal de Niebla''' - $140 pesos (dormitorio) - incredible location for the price (Gutiérrez Zamora & Jose Maria Mata, Zona Centro)
 
'''Hostal Catre de mi Corazón''' - $150 pesos (dormitorio) - location is just as good as the other, but in a nice neighbourhood named Barrio Xalitic/Xallitic (Calle Francisco I. Madero)

Xalapa has a wide choice of budget hotels. The city should really be a lot more popular with backpackers than it is. The fact most stay on the Pacific and Caribbean coasts is their loss and can be your gain.
