This hotel was less than average. On the outside it has a modern/contemporary facade, the staff is less than warm and the rooms need serious TLC. This hotel tries really hard but they need to upkeep their rooms a little better, there were a few stains on the wall, the trashcan lid was broken in the bathroom and the bedding... More

I had a brief 2 day stay here back in May. Got here a day early, as some friends and I were meeting up to head to Rosarito. I ended up kinda wishing we'd extended our trip here. This was a very nice hotel. Clean, modern, and in the center of things. Easy check in, and very nice staff. My... More

We traveled to Tijuana for medical tourism with Dr. Campos Leon (by far, the BEST plastic surgeon.) This hotel was recommended to us by my surgeon, as it is just two blocks from the clinic. The service here was exceptional. Because I had surgery, we didn't leave the hotel very much, so we ate just about every meal there and... More

Reasonably priced, very clean & comfortable and close to the medical district. Will stay here again when next I need to go down. Cabs right across from the main entrance to take you where ever you want to go.

Hotel charges 19% in addition to room base rate. You can only pay in full through their website with a credit card. If you book using a third party, you will need to pay at check-in (cash or credit). Popular medical tourism hotel close to many medical offices.

This hotel is a hidden gem located in the Zone Rio area. Service was excellent, the rooms were first rate and I loved the bar. The unexpected thing about this hotel is the food is really good which I would never expect from a hotel. Highly recommended.

I loved this hotel. It was a find on priceline about $60 bucks a night for a double. It was modern, clean and well-located. It was a quick cab ride to the nightlife on the Avenida de la Revolucion. We went jogging in the morning in the area and everything was great. Free wi-fi in all the rooms. I would... More

The hotel is nice and modern. To find it, it was a bit tricky, but I'm sure if you call them, they can guide you. The breakfast was very yummy and reasonably price. The only thing I would suggest is getting softer towels. They were a bit too harsh... Other than that, it was a comfortable stay.

I am a frequent traveler to Tijuana. This time I needed to find the nicest hotel possible at around 75 dollars a night as I was needing 2-3 rooms. Hotel Real del Rio's website showed some pretty nice modern bedrooms and they boasted a policy in place to maintain the hotels integrity. Through their website I got a pretty decent... More
