I recently stayed at Hotelito Rolando. The hotel is located "off the beaten path" in more of a residential area but still just a few blocks from stores, restuarants, beaches, etc. My room and the entire hotel is very charming, lots of common space to relax and enjoy. The terrace has a great view and the kitchen is available to... More

Ms. BubbleTea: I was advised that you were extremely condescending to the our Mexican staff who opened the gate, hence our "english-speaking" staff came to his rescue. We wish that tourists like yourself be more respectful to the locals. Being a tourist from a "richer" country does not give you licence to treat locals like that. They are good people... More

Located high on a hill in a vibrant local neighbourhood, Hotelito Rolando is about as far away from "average" as you can get. The nearby jungle provides a constant flow of fauna in the property's environs, from iguanas and geckos, to chachalacas, to hummingbirds, to many-hued butterflies - the natural "show" is ever-changing. My room is a colourful delight with... More

Delightful in every way. I was lucky enough to snare what might have been the last room in PV due to my flight being changed at the last minute; the Semanta Santa crowds were thick and tourists were filling the city. I could not be any more happy with Hotelito Rolando, and would be happy with my room and the... More

My taxi driver had no problem finding Rolando but i had printed off the map Jun had sent me and i knew the names of the streets. It bugs me when i read reviews of people who blame the hotel for being... More

We loved the location near Old Vallarta. The beach, restaurants, and great neighborhoods were all within walking distance. We LOVED staying in a neighborhood and not in the touristy hotel zone. The house was very charming, although in places, it was in disarray. Supplies were left on the floor in the common areas without being put away. The kitchen was... More

Dear EllisD2: Thank you for comments. Our kitchen is communal, as advised. Some guests can be quite untidy and they do not clean up when they leave, hence the signs we post around the kitchen reminding guests to clean up after themselves including when using the fridge. We also do not charge guests an additional Cleaning Fee to keep our... More

Hotelito Rolando is located near old downtown in walking distance to various shops and restaurants.Our taxi driver had quite a bit of trouble finding the hotel but once we were there we had a pleasant stay. A map of the area would have been useful. Our room was upgraded when we arrived. We only stayed one night since we were... More

The hotel is a hidden gem in the hills of old town. It is so colorful and charming. My sister and I stayed 3 nights and were in the Lorenzo room. Communication was a little awkward on sight but I would still stay there again. The room was comfortable and clean and cooled by a ceiling fan. I loved the... More
