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

Stayed here on January 4th. The hotel has a restaurant and bar. Tried all of the services the hotel had to offer and was very satisfactory. The bar is great, plays alot of techno but fairly empty and quiet for a Saturday night. I would recommend.

I went to Tijuana for one week's trip and lives several different hotels. I booked this hotel online before I went there, it's very close to the boarder between America and Mexico. I paid $68 of a single room with a king size bed, it's a nice room with a nice desk, good WIFI, safe box. It worth the money... More

I came to Tijuana by myself to have some dental work done. ALL of my friends and family were worried about me (except my hubby who knows that I am adventurous). This hotel was chosen because of its price and proximity to my dentist. It is located in the Zona Rio and is close to restaurants, cinemas, banks and clubs.... More

The hotel looks average from the outside but the inside rooms are very clean and very nice looking. Its a bit tricky getting to the hotel because of the one way streets and... More

From the moment we walked in until we checked out we were very pleased. The hotel has a very modern look to it with oversize seating in the lobby.

It has an excellent location, restaurants and a mall close by, very clean rooms and overhall this hotel is excellent for the price that you pay. very friendly stuff and very private, walking distance to places and one of the best areas in Tijuana. Boulevard close to so you can take a cab if you don't wanna drive.
