I arrived Madero street after dark, and I was tired. After seeing only another hotel, I took the room for 300 pesos for single, which I later found out it was a bit higher than average on that street. AC was there, but 50 pesos more, which I declined. A small TV and fan were attached near the ceiling. I... More

We slept at Hotel Hortencia for 3 nights and the owner Jorge and his wife were extremely welcoming. They remembered my boyfriend who stayed here before only two years prior and treated us like family. The room was on the top floor, had two full size very stiff uncomfortable mattresses, the shower had no pressure, there was a mini fridge... More

After reading the other reviews I was expecting a basic cheap hotel. What I was NOT expecting was to find a bathroom with the last guest's fluid on the toilet seat (!), dirty walls, and mildewy smell. The people who were in charge were super friendly, but I didn't want to stay. I found another place after the first night.

Was fortunate to stay here for four weeks when I first moved to Pto Vallarta. They went out of their way to make my stay very enjoyable. Hotel is in great location, any way you choose to walk, there is great food, great prices! Appox 7-8 blocks from the beach. Half a block away you can catch a bus to... More

there are lots of cheap hotels in this area of Puerto Vallarta...the old town, the funkier part, which is where I like to be, but this was easily the best for one reason...the owners are just so friendly and helpful, they genuinely want you to have a good time. Amongst the friendliest hotels I have ever stayed in anywhere. It's... More

Travelers BEWARE! I give my recent stay at the Hotel Hortencia (2/7-2/12/12) an overall 3 star rating. The reason for the "average" review are for the following reasons: NEGATIVE: 1.) the beds are stiff as a board (although the pillows were SUPER comfy) 2.) My AC unit did not work. They did have an unannounced repair man in my room... More

Jorge and his staff are very friendly and genuinely helpful. The first room we were given had an intense musty/mouldy odour so we asked to be moved and with no problems and no fuss we were given a different room. This room was lovely and included a decent sized kitchenette. Location is excellent. Overall this place is very good value... More
