If you're familiar with Monterrey, you know that that is a pedestrian mall downtown that is several blocks long. IStay is at the very end, right where it starts to get a little dicey feeling, particularly at night. My room was fine, basic but clean. I wish they offered room safes and a coffee maker. All in all, it's a... More

The hotel is old, but this is not what bothered me the most. The towels were dirty and I passed that however my shampoo bottle was full of water. I went with... More

My wife and I stayed there for three nights because that is where our son's professional basketball team stays. The hotel was relatively inexpensive, but not well maintained. Our small room had a small bathroom and closet, and not much else. The carpet needed shampooing, the windows were dirty, the sink was cracked and poorly repaired, and we had two... More

OLDER, tworn carpet, poor water pressure, ripped shower curtains, and more. We had a reservation for two nites, but only stayed one nite. Parking is bad also, two levels under the... More

I went on a business trip to Monterrey, 2 nights. The company is looking for some savings, so I thought I would take the challenge and look for the best cost/benefit available. Read some good reviews and the price seemed right. Photo's looked promising as well. Getting there, the hotel was easy to find because of the height. The basement... More

THe most important of this hotel is the location. Very good location. You can walk around if you want shopping (popular stores) and tipical restaurants, THe breakfast is very good, the rooms are clean and it has a good wifi conection. It is not a luxuary hotel but has good service, good location and reasonable price.

Friend of mine from Austria stayed one week in I Stay Hotel, unfortunately his earrings disappeared from the room and they don’t offer a security box. Nobody took responsibility about that and just after several and strong discussions the manager promised to us refund the cost of just one night but at this moment they don’t do anything and we...
