Hotel is a little oasis of green by a busy intersection which means the noise hardly penetrates the hotel.
The reception staff were friendly and it was perfectly located if backpacking and needing to use the bus station to travel onward. Hotel USD exchange rate to Peso prices was very good.
The room was clean enough - the kitchenette utensils were limited, but if you really wanted to cook I suspect they could have given you a pot or two. Fridge worked fine.
Shower worked and ran hot after a short time.
Overall a good relatively inexpensive hotel - can't say I thought much of Cancun as a whole though!
