“Will be home away from home!”
Reviewed 29 December 2011

First, If you like fancy this place is not for you.

I enjoyed my stay, rooms are clean, good closet and luggage space and free wifi and breakfast. Ema and the girls where very nice and helpful. This is the place if you plan on exploring all day and just go to sleep at night. Very close to the beach and Oxxo's near by which is great for drinks and snacks on your way to the beach.

If you are in a budget restaurants close to the hotel are way cheaper than the ones closer to the Malencon.......and tastier.

Walking is the best way of exploring Puerto Vallarta, now if you need to go to shopping mall or Wallmart take a taxi (its faster and it only costs around 4 bucks)

Note: they are doing remodeling but they start late ( 12pmish) which is not bad. So the Lobby picture shown above is before the transformation. The lobby now looks amazing!

Yup, this is a little gem and I enjoyed my stay here.

This is not the kind of place for you if you are one of those rich people who like to stay behind the walls of your all-inclusive resort. It's a moderately-priced hotel downtown. There is lots of street traffic, and lots of noise. This was compounded by the fact that they were doing construction on the hotel and didn't observe siesta time with quiet. Major bad.

That said, the room was clean, the people friendly, and the breakfast free. The beds were hard, but the staff gave us some mattress pads and that made it kinda OK.

Location-wise, it's convenient to "local" restaurants and there's a taco stand on nearly every corner nearby. The closest end of the Malecon is about 7 blocks away, and the furthest end of old-town is about an additional 9 blocks or so. Cab fare to the middle of the Malecon is 40-50 Pesos (3-4 bucks). A cab to the airport is about 120 Pesos (9-10 bucks).

After a day of fishing, the staff let us freeze the fish in the lobby freezer for transport back home. (You can take frozen fish on the airline as checked baggage, but they make you dump the ice.)

Overall, I might stay there again. But there are other hotels priced about the same in the Romantic Zone that are much more convenient to all the things we wanted to see and do.

Room Tip: Get one NOT overlooking the street. Loud traffic starts early in the morning, and continues late at...

This hotel is great value for money! The rooms are clean and well maintained. The staff are super friendly and the location is walking distance to most places, and only a block away from the bus stop. Not to mention that the 24 hr supermarket and beach are very close by. There is free wifi and luggage storage, with complimentary breakfast. I would gladly stay here again.

first time staying here, and a good choice. I can work and study without noise. the room is small, but clean. It is only 3 blocks from the new new Vallarta Theatre, and three blocks from "Ley" supermarket. The corner taco stands have been my favorites for many years...very happy choice. If I need the beach, it is only 3 blocks away also...who needs the roar of the surf????

Room Tip: Quiet and small like a European hotel. the staff couldn't be more helpful and happy. Quiet new a...
