“Surprisingly good hotel and convenient location near ADO bus station”
Reviewed 30 July 2011

This is a surprisingly good hotel, also considered the location, 20 meters from ADO first-class bus station.

We we tired of our backpacks and wanted a convenient room fast, so this hotel was the first option. It is brand-new, standard rooms have cable-tv, good aircon, superb bathroom and good beds, though not 2 meters large, and free strong WiFI.

The first night we paid the rack rate, 870 pesos and we booked a second night. The online rate is cheaper and when we mentioned this, we could just book online one night and stay in the same room. The hotel has no pool, so it's not a beach holiday or swimming hotel, but for a short stay-over this is really a good hotel.

Rooms are also pretty quiet, which is impressive considered its location. Book upfront online (20% cheaper) or if you get there and mention this at the counter. Decent breakfast too, included in the price.

Clean, basic rooms, we stayed for two weeks, and could have used more hanging space, and some drawers to unpack properly, however for the price for great, friendly staff, and excellent breakfast included in the price. Wifii throughout the hotel also included. No swimming pool, however only a few blocks to walk to the beach.

Beside Walmart, and other superstores for shopping. Right beside the bus station, which is great for the return journey, but it does not stop there on the drop off point.

All in alll, very much enjoyed our stay there, and the price was excellent value.

It is a brand new hotel located right next to the new ADO station (note this is not the ADO station at downtown). The room is not too big but it's just the right size for me. It's very very clean with plenty of hot water and fast internet. I really like the design of the room, it looks very contemporary almost like a boutique hotel. Very quiet at night even with the air-con. Free hot breakfast in the morning. I booked the hotel from priceline and it is one of the cheapest hotel with a daily rate of $53. A hotel like this here in San Francisco will probably cost like $200US.
40 pesos taxi to town or else a 15 mins walk.Super convenient at night as Walmart is 5 mins walking away or if you prefer,Mega(another huge supermarket)is just right at the corner.Its location is more like at the real mexico side compared to the touristy 5th ave hotel zones.I like it that way because when I travel,I would love to see how the locals live.
Cannot be any better,no complaints at all!

Nice modern hotel, cheap price (online) but a little bit far from the 5th avenue at night > 7 minutes walk through a dimly lit neighborhood. Free and good breakfast buffet = toasts, eggs, chilaquiles, frijoles, waffles, cereals, fresh fruits and yogurt. Clean and quiet rooms, with cable TV. Nice and helpful staff. Computers in the lobby. Just across the street from the 'long distance' bus terminal.

Reviewed 9 January 2011

We stayed at One Jan 2011 - the place had only been opened 7 months, so everything was very new and modern. It is located a short distance from the main strip, so it is very quiet. Free internet, free breakfast included (the breakfast is the usual local fare - fruit, toast, chilaquiles and beans, waffles, etc). Beds are really comfortable and the bathrooms modern and clean. There is a great tapas place just kiddy corner to the hotel, and it is right across from the ADO bus station so easy to get to. Great fares online - better than what they will offer you as a walk in so check out www.bestday.com.mx or similar sites for good prices. Oh, and there is also free laundry facilities. Great place - we will be recommending to friends when we have our wedding in Playa later in the year.

Reviewed 5 January 2011

This appears to be a brand new hotel with parts (perhaps a future condo complex) still under construction. The lobby, breakfast room and rooms are all very clean. The room was basic: a queen sized bed and that was about it! There was a wall-length shelf which served as a desk and also as a closet of sorts along with a small flat-screen TV. Walls were stark white. Bathroom was nicely sized, with nice large tiles on walls of shower and granite counter top. Free Wi-fi throughout. About 4 blocks from the main drag (restaurants/bars/etc along Ave 5) of Playa and 5 - 6 blocks from beach. Wal-Mart is one block south and a mega-mart one block north. Literally 5 min walk to all the action tho it does seem a little 'out of the way'. One of the two bus stations in Playa is next door but I didn't hear any noise and was not bothered at all. For non-resort style clean and cheap accomodation, there's not much to complain about. Breakfast included.

Although this hotel is not located near to the beach, it is located directly behind the ADO bus station which serves Cancun, etc. The cabs in Playa are quite expensive, but if you want to walk in the heat or just take a cab down to the beach once a day it is not so bad! Esepcially if you are taking buses throughout Quintana Roo, the location is great. There is also not much noise from the bus station at all. At least, we did not notice any from our room 106. There was breakfast offered in the morning and although it was not the best breakfast I have had, it was certainly not bad. They offered eggs, ceral, toast and chilaquiles between 7am and 11am. The front desk staff was very helpful, and they have computers available for use in the lobby. The internet also worked very well in the rooms. Our room had a king bed and it was very comfortable and clean. The bathroom was clean and they offered soap, shampoo, etc. We had a small closet, a desk area and a TV. For a one night stay traveling towards Cancun, we had a nice stay for only 45USD total.
