Nice clean hotel with helpful staff, rooms are nice and clean with nice water pressure. We enjoyed our two night stay. The restaurant by the lobby serves great food with inexpensive prices. Carla at the restaurant is very nice.

We really enjoyed the food every morning at the restaurant. The hotel was very quiet, and we went out to hang out, and when we got back there was a security guard to greet us. I felt safe, this hotel is located near everything fun. I Saw more families at this hotel than at other hotels in centro, that is... More

I am currently typing from room 215 in the Aqua Rio Hotel. The Internet works extremely fast and maintains a good connection. The rooms are spotless. The hotel staff is extremely hospitable and works with speaking English. Concerning the rooms, the floors are entirely stone and it smells very clean when you arrive. The hotel offers daily maid service. With... More

This hotel is in downtown and close to all the action and restaurants. Clean and hotel staff is helpful. The rooms are not noise protected so you can hear everything happening outside. But good hotel for bucks spent.

My husband and I came with another couple and stayed one night. The back parking lot is easier to get in & out of just make sure you don't lose your parking ticket or they charge 100 pesos. Rooms were mostly clean and not a bad deal for $42 USD per room. Pros: Beds are comfortable Cost effective Felt very... More

Was quite disappointed by my recent stay at the Aqua Rio Hotel in Tijuana. Everything nice that other reviewers mention about the hotel is indeed true: the rooms are basic but good, the hotel feels safe and secure, it's quiet at night, the hotel staff is friendly and helpful. What nobody appears to have mentioned is that the rooms are... More

This place was impossibly reasonable for a place one block off Revolucion with safe parking and security guards. The desk staff is SO nice and helpful. The only meh thing about our stay was that it was super hot in TJ this weekend (in August) and that there was no air conditioning in the rooms. A cool shower and the... More

The floors and entire bath are tile. My bed was queen size and very comfy. Go the website and the photos are actual and... More
