This is a great hotel. Cheap compared to other hotels, and it's close to everything. We've stayed here for three years in a row and it's always good. They give you a front door key cause they lock it after midnight, which makes is feel even more secure. Wifi is kinda lame, so if you really need it I'd recommend...

This is a nice, clean and well equip hotel near 5 avenue with a lot of good shopping and restaurants walking distance. The staff are very friendly and make you feel welcomed. The room & bathroom was comfortable and clean, and had everything you need including a small fridge to keep cold water and snacks. I can recommend.

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend get-away. The rooms were small but clean and the a/c worked great. Breakfast in the morning was simple - toast, fruit, scrambled eggs, and beans. We only needed a place to sleep as one day we went fishing all day and the next day we spent the whole day on...

I stayed here for one day because we got in late and I didn't want to pay for a night a resort if we got in at 8pm. I can tell you that this place is close to everything. The ado bus, taxis, beach, collectivos (shuttles to cancun, tulum, you name it) and 5th ave, They just built a new...

Nice hotel, reasonably priced. Close to beach, restaurants and ferry to Cozumel. Breakfast provided, but very simple. Would stay here again; definitely worth it. Staff was very helpful. Credit card machine didn't work first day but did the next day.

I absolutely love this tiny hotel. It has only eight rooms, no pool, or lavish amenities, but what it does have is heart. The same workers have been here for years. They are the sweetest and kindest people you would ever want to be around. There is not an ounce of fear about thus place. There is always someone here...

The location is great - just behind the shopping mall, right in the center, yet it's very quiet. No crazy bars around, so you get quite a good night sleep. Beds/pillows were ok, though pretty much all of the mattresses in Mexico tend to be on a harder side. The room was clean (we had 2 beds). Flat TV, great,...

First, I want to commend the staff of this small, budget b&b. They are always smiling and very friendly. We arrived at the hotel at 8:30 am from Cancun Airport and were miserable because of the heat and because we didn't have enough sleep from the plane. We were dreading the thought of staying out since check-in time was 3pm...

If you are used to the Hilton then this is definitely not the place for you. However, for a simple, budget hotel it works. I'd give it a 3 1/2 star rating if I could. The rooms are very clean and the air con works well. There is a safe and a good shower. The bathroom is quite small (except...

Stayed there with my boyfriend and I had a great time. They treated us as we are in honeymoon, so each day we received an origami surprise made with towels! sweet! The breakfast is simple and everything that you need. Make sure to open the fridge, there is butter, yogurt, cheese and so on. The location is awesome, really close...
