L'Hotelito
Ranked #55 of 89 Tulum B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 April 2013

My wife and I have stayed at this litle hotel more than one time.,The hotel is very basic but for the price and for the location is perfect for a budget traveler, the owners are very helpfull and very nice people., the only thing is the noice from a club that recently open this past year,the noice is horrible, very bad..

Room Tip: rooms on the second floor are quieter and cheaper.

I stayed at this hotel in February 2013. Cozy hotel on the main street, close to the restaurants, shops, bank and bus station. Large and clean rooms, beds - white linens. The owners - the Italians are very nice and responsive people. For breakfast - fresh pastries, good coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice.

Yes, it's run by Italians, who have an espresso maker and good taste in bedspreads. Yes, it has big rooms and a lovely courtyard. Alas, all of this is outweighed by unreliable wifi and hot water, and by the location of an all-night Mexican nightclub next door. Literally, all night - from 11PM til dawn, our room was practically vibrating with bachata and disco siren noises. Avoid, if you like sleep, hot showers, or email.

Very nice hotel, with big, clean rooms, comfortable beds, a nice little garden with hammocks and an Italian restaurant. Very kind hosts who made our stay pleasant and offered advice about the village and the trips to the ruins and to the beach.
The booking was easy and smooth and once we got there we could even choose our rooms.

It may get a big too noisy at night, especially on Friday, but the hosts provide ear plugs and it's bearable after all. Not such a huge problem for a young group of travellers who just needed a hot shower and a comfortable bed and who finally got a lot more nice things!!

I think I'd give it 4.5 stars (which translates in 5 into the backpackers' language :) ).

We would definitely choose L'Hotelito for our future stay in Tulum!

We stayed for two nights but of the four places we stayed in Tulum, this was the least friendly and we were happy to leave.

On the plus side: it's a great location if you want to be in the middle of town, and the rooms are very large and clean, plus breakfast is included.

On the negative side: despite speaking my best spanish & always giving the hosts a smile, I didn't feel very welcome, and it wasn't somewhere we wanted to hang around. We even had breakfast somewhere else on our second day, rather than eat there.
The room was a bit gloomy due to the lack of natural light, and overall there wasn't a particularly nice atmosphere.
There are some VERY noisy bars just there...didn't bother us as we went out to a party at the beach but probably not a great location if you don't want a late night at the weekend. Some go till 4am.

Room Tip: upstairs rooms are more 'rustic' with thatch roof / mossie nets etc whereas the one we staye...

I stayed two nights at L'Hotelito. On the positive side, its location is very central and my (small) breakfast was good. Our room faced a private garden.

On the down side: being this central means bar noise until 2:00 am and street noise starting at 7:00 am. I did not sleep very well for that reason. Internet was also incredibly slow.

Room Tip: You should try to get a room in the back of the hotel, as far as possible from the street.

I really liked this place and the feel of it. Rooms have a look of a cabin, a lot of dark wood all around. Beds were protected by mosquito nets, the toilet was very nice, there was also a tv to waste some time. Outside, you can relax on one of the hammocks. There are a lot of places to eat just steps away, but you can also eat at the hotel, as they offer menu.
