Mokara Hotel and Spa San Antonio Reviews
Luxury Hotel on the Riverwalk May 03, 2015
The Mokara Hotel & Spa is directly located on the Riverwalk in San Antonio. The location is within walking distance of The Alamo, many restaurants and bars. The room I was booked in was on the 7th floor at the top of the hotel and had a Riverwalk view below. If you are afraid of heights I would recommend a lower level room as the balconies for each room are small. This was the second time I have stayed here, both times the hotel staff was very welcoming, friendly and accommodating. A pair of sunglasses in the room and they mailed them back the next day. The bathroom was very spacious, with large counter space, a bathtub, a separate shower and another room for the toilet. The bed was extremely comfortable and the street level noise at night was almost nonexistent.
