Based on the reviews there seem to be widely varying opinions about Cuatro Vientos, and after spending a week there we can understand some of it.
The hotel is up the hill, with about 150 vertical steps from the Malecon (boardwalk) to our third floor room. Don't go there if steps are a problem for you! But the height gives you the cool breezes and great view from the rooftop bar. And you're only 5 blocks from the heart of the city. Dozens of restaurants, stores, and the main bus routes within a 10 minute walk. We made the climb 2-3 times a day without finding it objectionable.
Our room (3C) was comfortable. No AC, TV or phone, adequate privacy, clean bathroom. It's in the middle of the city, so there was some noise from the cathedral bells and the street. It quieted down after 10PM and never bothered us.
We had a great vacation and loved the hotel. The dinners were excellent, the staff and guests were friendly, and we sipped our drinks and watched the sun set 7 days in a row. Puerto Vallarta is a great place for exploring for dining, shopping, and beaches, and Cuatro Vientos put us in the middle of it.
