We wanted a clean and friendly place to sleep in Playa del Carmen but would not need too many frills as we were planning on driving around in our rental car during the day. We eventually decided for the XStudio hotel where we spent six nights. The overall value for the money was excellent and we are very satisfied. Here... More

Booked this with Travel Republic based on the reviews and the location. I wanted something safe and central. Great accommodation for the price. It was pretty basic. I had a two bedroomed flat, with kitchen/TV area, a nice spacious shower room and a balcony overlooking 5th Av. I only used my bedroom and shower so wasted on just me really.... More

Our room consisted of a bedroom and kitchen. The bedroom had a comfortable double bed, ceiling fan {no AC} and small bathroom. No television. The kitchen area had a TV, full size frig, coffee pot and microwave. It was clean and comfortable. I would've liked the TV in bedroom not kitchen; hotel said we could change rooms but we didn't....

The Xtudio hotel is a little gem right on 5 avenue at 6 street. Don't let the price fool you, hotel room is small but clean and equipped with an efficiency kitchen. Service is 5 Star and though no pool, it does have an ongoing agreement with another hotel, one block away, to use their pool. Hotel is one block... More

Xtudio is a nice little hotel hidden right on 5th. No pool, no beach, but it is in a great location between 4th and 6th. Clean, modern rooms which are perfect if your vacation isn't about hotel pools, spas, etc. Close to Wah Wah, Bad Boys and the ADO station. Price is great, too! There are steps involved, so if...

So we stayed at this place for 2 nights, May 12-14, 2014 in room #9 (3rd floor). Remember no elevator, so you have to walk up stairs. The hotel is quite good for a budget hotel. They do need to have better sign to indicate where the hotel is. It took us 10 min to find the hotel when we... More
