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 for two nights and really enjoyed it. The room was clean and quiet. The air conditioning rocks--it is a very welcome luxury in the humidity of Palenque! The bathroom was also very clean and the shower had good water pressure and temperature. The attendants at the front desk were helpful in providing us directions and recommendations on...

We very much enjoyed our stay - palenque is hot so the great air conditioning was a real plus. Also, the room had a very powerful shower, so we were incredibly comfortable. The restaurant is also okay, and they will make you nice takeaway sandwiches for your onward journey! (although they seem to think veggies can eat ham.. Watch out...

We had a very comfortable two night stay here in June 2016. The La Canadas area is a lovely tree lined part of Palenque. The hotel is clean, simplistic in decor, very handy to the ADO bus station(walkable) and a couple of nice restaurants. Wifi was very good, you can have a beer outside the lobby area and catch up...
