When we booked this place it was called Hostal Soberanis, but in the time between that and arriving it had clearly been under renovations, hence the name change to Hotel Soberanis. Despite the name, we paid what felt like Hostal prices for Hotel service. Our room had 2 Queen beds, air con, fan, tv, private bathroom, was cleaned daily and... More

From the outside the hotel looks like a seedy hotel, but the rooms are fine, although the beds are very hard. LCD TV, A/C and fan, the bathrooms are relatively well. When I went they were working within the hotel so it was noisy and dusty. The staff could be friendlier. The location is very good, close to everything. For... More

I booked this hotel for 2 days before the trip, it was cheap and it provided breakfast. I've been here for 11 days. Large, bright rooms, huge beds, linen changed every other day, high-quality cleaning, helpful staff. Breakfast was very poor, but the coffee was good. Air conditioning is really noisy, but it worked fine. The soundproofing in the rooms... More

When I got there, the Receptionist, A guy, told me that the hotel was already booked and that the reservation I made the night before did not go thru. plus he mention the Hotel had already closed all bookings from like 1 week before....

Soberanis was great. I LOVED the price, and the place was clean, safe, and in a great location (near a park where a lot of community events occurred). The complimentary breakfast will not fill you up, but the cafe/restaurant in the hotel has a really delicious breakfast selection if you wish to purchase from there. It is certainly not a... More

I did not know what to expect. What I got was two bunk beds in a standard hotel size room. I never had to share the room with more than one other person and I stayed there for a week. It was still rainy season and it really put a damper on my plans to get out and see things.... More

Upon arriving here i was robbed of my luggage. The receptionist was conveniently missing and no security in the building. Cancun attracts many visitors and being away from the hotel zone means many more thieves and weak security... I called the police but was unable to get any assistance obviously. Anyway the best part of this establishment was the fact... More

We made a reservation for several people, some of whom had flight trouble. We needed to stay a few extra days anyway, but they kept the money from the rooms we didn't use and wouldn't consider putting it toward our continued stay. We found this to be a good example of the general attitude there; they'd much rather make some... More

We spent just one night in this friendly and clean hostel. Unfortunately we got a room just above the highway and it was so loud at night too that we could not sleep. We had to close the window but then it was extremely hot. We tried the air conditioning, but it was also loud. Anyway we could not sleep.... More
