Quaint little hotel with an open lobby. Everything is well maintained and cleaned. The bed even had had towel art, unusual in budget hotels. The room was a good size and the bed was comfortable. Brush up on your Spanish, because the staff speaks little English. A nice, inexpensive hotel - in a great location.

A real maxican hotel runned by a family. It's a budget hotel but the personnel is very friendly and the quality of service and the rooms are very good . They don't speak alot of English but you will manage. One tip just get used to the Mexican ways. The hotel is 50m from the tourist area.

Very clean, great hot water and water pressure in shower. Pretty bare bones in the room but didn't spend much time in there anyway. Staff very friendly; not much English spoken. Water cooler. A/C. Small bed for two people. Our room was on the ground level; would have preferred higher floor but none available.

We are a small budget hotel, therefore, we do not provided such amenities as pool, breakfast, etc. Please, consider that the availability at other hotels and their prices change depending on the season.

Found this hotel by accident when I was picking up my car rental. Booked it in my phone and paid only half (44 USD) of what the hotel rates are if you book directly in the hotel.
