What an absolute little gem!!! Located in the "quieter" part of 5th Avenue this little hotel was a wonderful find. Small, yet full of all the comforts you would need for a stay in town. It's a 5-minute walk to the best beach in Playa. Stop looking and I would recommend booking this hotel with confidence. Enjoy your stay

I stayed with a friend at this hotel for 4 days. The location is good, close to the beach and many restaurants. The room was ok but the furniture was old and there was a constant smell of mould. Overall it was not extremely clean. Breakfast is from the restaurant la Vagabonda, just in front of the hotel. Out of...

We arrived having had a couple of nights in Cancun and were welcomed at the desk, check in was very smooth and our first impressions were that the hotel is beautiful and a little oasis from the busy street. We were told as it was our honeymoon that they had upgraded us to a suite. Photos included. A delightful and...

Upon the arrival we were stunned: from inside it didn't look like an average hotel at all! Seriously, the feeling as if you are in the fairytale: very original. It's small, yet cozy. There's an elevator.The rooms are clean and the air conditioning works well (and that't important!). The breakfast is served in the cafe just opposite the hotel -...

Close enough to Italian zone and Mexican zone, inexpensive, clean. Leave beach towels at home, walking distance to best beach in Playa del Carmen! One major downside - they will absolutely not allow anyone, even accompanied with staff, to knock at room. Our phone was not working - we were told there was a problem at check-in. Revisited Play after...

The location is very good, the staff is friendly but the rooms are smaller than the pictures shown in the net, plus in the photos the rooms look nicer than what they really are. The bathroom is also very small.

Charming hotel. Great location. Clean, spacious, comfortable room. Lovely staff. I had read a bit about this hotel before booking, and had made sure to select a room NOT on 5th street. The hotel upgraded me to a master suite...which faced 5th. I did not want to be rude and turn it down. The first night ( Wednesday) was quite...

We arrived at the hotel a little flustered because of the parking situation however, upon arriving at the front desk the concierge Claudia greeted us with a Colgate smile and eased our frustrations. The check in process was quick and easy, she escorted us to our room and gave us the run down of the wi-fi-, room amenities etc. We...

The front desk staff is very nice. They can help you with advice and tips in playa del Carmen. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel is close to playa mamitas and coco bongo, and they often offer you coupons for these.You can find nice restaurants near. I booked the hotel in hotels.com for a great deal. The hotel...
