I visited the hotel for the second time and still having very bad image, the street at night is very dark, it looks like a cheap motel, the bar at night gives a bad image. I went for work in the company of my wife, but I would not go with her again. The price is reasonable, but I found... More

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

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
