Hotel Colorado

Reviewed 4 July 2012

Hotel Colorado is truly a gem in Playa del Carmen. It is a beautiful hotel, very colourful, affordable, simple and clean. It is also very conveniently located, just a short walk to the beach, but far enough removed that you don't get the hustle and bustle of the main tourist strip. The hotel is also a short walk to the bus station. There are a few good options for restaurants very closeby as well as a couple of laundromats and grocery stores. The hotel managers were very helpful and kind, one of the women even recommended an awesome free concert that ended up being one of the highlights of my trip. Some of their rooms even have kitchenettes and I think all have mini fridges. I would without a moment of hesitation, recommend this hotel and hope to head back there soon myself!

We stayed here for eight nights and loved it. The location was unbeatable - close to the beach, restaurants and amenities - and the room was clean and spacious. There are lots of more expensive and noisy hotels in Playa so we appreciated the quiet and the value for money. The owners are lovely and helpful whenever you have any questions.

Room Tip: The front rooms can get a little noisy in the morning if you like sleeping in.

I thought the hosts were very helpful and nice, the upstairs balcony had delightful breezes but ugly views and cheap plastic furniture. The room I had was 2 single beds, a table & 2 chairs, a small frig & mounted TV. No nightstand between the beds even and no reading lamp. The overhead lights only operated by a switch at the door, so would have to get out of bed after reading to turn off the light. Didn't need the A/C, the overhead fan was adequate plus the breeze thru the window, however the curtains billowed in the breeze so did not give much privacy from others walking by the room. The bathroom shower had absolutely no place to put a bar of soap or a shampoo bottle. It would just take some simple fixes to make this place more comfy.
As it was, it had a nice book exchange in the lobby, good neighborhood markets and local food places and it was only a 3 block walk to the bus station and the 5th Avenue craziness.
It's a good place for the price, but could be improved just a bit.

Room Tip: The upper floor is reached by a spiral staircase of about 80 steps, bt gets good sea breezes. May...

We absolutely love the people that run this sweet place.This was our third time staying at Hotel Colorado in Playa del Carmen and everything was exactly as expected. We know we will return. The staff are a wealth of information for visiting local attractions and are willing to assist with your questions. The location is great, away from the noise of 5th Av yet still close enough to walk to the beach a couple of times a day. The patio is fantastic, with a wonderful breeze and a great place to meet other travelers. The courtyard is beautiful and provides a quiet shady place to escape the sun. This great neighborhood provides groceries, plenty of local restaurants with great food all within walking distance. We would rather mingle with the locals than stoll the Av so these simple and clean accomodations work great for our travel style. All rooms have refridgerators, fans and private bano.

Room Tip: If you have special needs room choices are limited. Some rooms have airconditioning and kitchenettes...

We stayed here one night and everything was just right. Close to the bus station and main attractions but in a quiet neighborhood. I would definitely stay again and would stay for more than one night.

We stayed at Hotel Colorado en route to Cancun for one night. The location of this small hotel was fantastic. It was close to 5th Ave and the beach, however off the tourist beaten path, and also within walking distance to both ADO bus stations.

Our room offered a clean space with TV, A/C, mini fridge, private bathroom, hot water and free wi-fi.

There also was a nice little garden area for relaxing and chatting.

Considering the cost of this quaint little hotel, travelers can't really ask for much more. Hotel Colorado definitely has all the basics one could need on a budget!

We stayed at Colorado for two nights and later decided to stay a few nights longer. The hotel has a great atmosphere and the staff was really friendly and helpful. The room was clean, spacious and had a great little kitchen area. The location was excellent, very close to the beach. Had a great time at this hotel and the price was good too.
