The hotel is in a area with everyday within walking distance. Feels like staying at a American city. Its nothing like being in Downtown TJ or the Zona Norte where tourists are at. Its the business/ shopping area so prices for rooms are not cheap by Mexican standards. I found by walking around that there are cheaper hotels by the... More

We were going to spend the night in Chula Vista prior to going to Tijuana, but found a great deal online for the City Express Tijuana Rio and couldn't be happier we stayed here. The hotel has a great location, close to many attractions in Tijuana. The room is very basic. We had a room with 2 beds. Our room... More

Rooms are small and with basic decoration. But, you can enjoy free wifi, free breakfast buffet (continental with a mexican mix) and free ride around the area. Its best feature is the location: Near many restaurants and in the nicest part of the city. The other hotels in the area are much older and expensive. I would rather stay here... More

The hotel is good in general. I stayed there cause it is near the airport. The most important points are covered cleaness and confort. The only problem is that all the roms are very very small. So they are a little claustrofobic.

We booked this hotel through Hotels.com -- big mistake. We've stayed here before, twice, for one week at a time. We paid the hotel directly, $60USD nightly, and stayed in a room with a kitchenette. This time we booked online and were penalized. Upon arrival, the hotel put us in a very small room. We said we always stay in... More

Great place for the price. Adequate breafast bar, nothing fancy but will fill your palate. Not even 5 mins from the border, you're next to a central shopping mall, super clean, attentive staff, clean rooms and hotel. I've seen reviews where other's have said the WIFI speed sucks, I never tried it so I couldn't tell you. If you're looking... More
