A good hotel to stay at for a short stay. It is clean and safe. Fairly basic in most ways. Good place to have a beer in the lobby. The restaurant next door is really good for seafood. Not sure what it is called.

I first stayed here in 2006 and returned this January (2017). I couldn't think of staying anywhere else. My room--No. 27--was spacious, quiet, and very pleasant. The owner, Marcos Morales, is a perfect gentleman and host who remembered me, although we had met ten long years ago. The contact info. on the hotel website is not very helpful when making...

Location is good, near the city center. Hotel is normal, nice, clean, rooms with wi-fi. Maybe a little bit noisy. Morning call was done by a guy who actually called room by room, knocking the door.... And we heard it all. Staff is kind but they don't really speak English. So be prepared to use your basic Spanish. The breakfast...

The hotel is located in the "hotel zone" of the city of Palenque. On the same street there are some other hotels, few nice restaurants and shops. The supermercados and center of the city are relatively near - you could walk there. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly (well, as everywhere there in fact), the design is just...

By Mexican standards, this was a very nice hotel. Not fancy, but very clean, not one bug seen in 4 nights! Nice tile flooring, lots of hot water, two beds, reading lights, windows with screens! We had the room at the back of the hotel, so had a large window that opened to good breezes, not sure all rooms had...

After 2+ weeks of traveling throughout Mexico, we stayed in hotels, private casas and guesthouses of different quality but this was by far our worst accommodation. It gave off more of a hostel vibe, rather than a hotel. Hotel seemed empty and, for an exception of a small youth tour group, overall looked rather deserted. Breakfast is not included, even...

We loved this hotel for the cleanliness and little "niceties" like in room bottled water, extra towels, which were sculpted into unique shapes, in room safe, and local interior design. It was a Nice place at a nice price. And breakfast was very reasonable too!

We stayed here two nights and thought it was great value. It was easy walking distance to the ADO bus terminal which is where you can also pick up a collectivo to the ruins. The room was nice with good air con and it's a nice street with a few restaurants to choose from. Perfect for a short stay to...
