The rooms are spacious and initially folks might think..who wants to stay in a hotel that is embedded in a mall? I do if you can't handle the humidity! And the convenience of shops and local market that is walking distance is a plus!

Para una o dos noches está bien. Es un hotel sencillo, buen staff, buenas camas. Tuvimos que pedir una toalla más, porque solamente nos habian puesto una en la habitación. El Aire Acondicionado no estaba funcionando muy bien pero al ser Diciembre no hizo mucha falta. / For one or two nights stay, is ok. It is a simple hotel,...

Before I decided to stay at Hotel Playa I read all of the reviews on TripAdvisor, and came away with the impression that the numerous negative comments must be a reflection of typical ‘gringo’ uptightness (OK, I’m a gringo too, but I live in Mexico). Well, I was wrong. There really is something wrong with this hotel, although there are...

We are very sorry for night 1 since it´s not up to us to keep the city´s lights out of the room (even with our thick courtains) or the sun set bothering your sleep. Some people like that! Concerning night 2, I´ve personally checked all the A/C´s and there´s not a single water leak comming out of them. Perhaps there´s...

My girlfriends and I stayed at The Playa Hotel over a long weekend, and we recommend it. Juan at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. He is fluent in English, and he is very knowledgeable about the city. He gave us a map and explained the main attractions. The hotel is perfectly situated between the two main hubs...

I will have to say after reading the reviews and now having stayed there I doubt TripAdvisor's rating system!!! This weekend a friend and I stay at the Hotel Playa. I had inquired about a reservation ahead of time but when we arrived they did not have us marked. They advertise rates by the number of people. There were two...

I booked Hotel Playa after reading the recommendations on TripAdvisor. When I phoned them a couple of days before my arrival, I was surprised that the room rate was even lower than announced on the hotel's website: I paid only 200 Mexican Pesos (12 Euros) for a single room with the usual queen size bed. It was the cheapest hotel...

We stayed at the Playa for two nights in May while completing some research in Veracruz. The location was fantastic - right across from the beach. The room is basic - we had a double with 2 beds, 2 fans and a bathroom with a shower. The bathroom light did not work and the fans could not keep the room...

As correctly said in our web page from where you booked online, there is only free internet access in the cafeteria and the reception area and fans in the hotel´s rooms. Those are the main reasons for the $250.- MXN you payed per night. Sorry if there was any inconvinience with the cleanliness and noise when showing a room to...
