We loved this hotel for the cleanliness and little "niceties" like in room bottled water, extra towels, which were sculpted into unique shapes, in room safe, and local interior design. It was a Nice place at a nice price. And breakfast was very reasonable too!

We stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed it. The room was clean and quiet. The air conditioning rocks--it is a very welcome luxury in the humidity of Palenque! The bathroom was also very clean and the shower had good water pressure and temperature. The attendants at the front desk were helpful in providing us directions and recommendations on...

We very much enjoyed our stay - palenque is hot so the great air conditioning was a real plus. Also, the room had a very powerful shower, so we were incredibly comfortable. The restaurant is also okay, and they will make you nice takeaway sandwiches for your onward journey! (although they seem to think veggies can eat ham.. Watch out...

We had a very comfortable two night stay here in June 2016. The La Canadas area is a lovely tree lined part of Palenque. The hotel is clean, simplistic in decor, very handy to the ADO bus station(walkable) and a couple of nice restaurants. Wifi was very good, you can have a beer outside the lobby area and catch up...

I stayed here with a traveling group for three nights at the end of April. Because it was so hot, the highest priority was good air conditioning--and the air con was great! Wifi was good, my room was big and clean, shower was terrific, everything about the place was great. Five stars for sure.

*I stayed at this hotel as part of a tour with Intrepid. This hotel was located just across the street from the bus stop, on 'hotel row' which is a cobbled stone road that has a number hotels along both sides.

Clean and inexpensive hotel located in the heart of the Palenque hotel district. Very friendly and helpful staff, and a convenient location. Some rooms are larger than others. We asked for a different room than the one we were shown, and the staff was happy to move us.
