this hotel is very nice with some nice features to it, at night its very quiet, and they have a computer for guest to use at the front desk. I used it many times to look up things. The hotel has good wifi, and is close to everything, and inexpensive.

Far and away the best value in downtown Tijuana. Rooms are simple but clean, clean, clean. There is no a/c but there is a ceiling fan. Wifi is solid, the location is very good, close to conveniences and the staff is terrific. Security staff is on the property. At about $30 per night you won't be surprised the room is... More

I loved staying at this hotel, the service was good. The room is very clean, the wifi was free in the room. I loved the fact that I could get my walking shoes on, and take a nice walk and everything is very close by. At night when I showed up to go to bed, there was a security guard... More

Hotel Aqua Rio blew my mind. I was originally looking for a very cheap hotel where I could relax for the night. I found Hotel Aqua Rio and decided to stay there because of the very affordable price. I was not expecting anything else. The manager met me at the front desk, gave me a map of the city, and... More

I recently stayed at Agua Rio for two nights. Rooms are clean, reasonably quiet and the bed was comfortable. The staff (front desk, housekeeping, security) are friendly and want your stay to be a good one. One plus, there is a really nice Sorianas grocery store just a few blocks away. One small downside, there was no mini-fridge in the... More

The amenities are adequate and some very good like water pressure and WiFi speed. Wall are a... More

The rooms have marble floors throughout. Beds are very comfortable but as is expected at this price range not fancy pillow... More
