My partner and I stayed one night at this budget hotel, essentially we just needed a place to sleep. We checked in late, at nearly 11:00PM, and our cab driver had some trouble finding the hotel and we had some trouble locating it on Google Maps as the address confuses the system for some reason. The front desk check-in individual... More

The towels were in bad shape, they looks dirty, like they haven't been washed in several months. There wasn't hot water in the room. The bed sheets were with stains. To be an international Hotel brand, they left to much to desire in this hotel.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while visiting Playa del Carmen after a few days in Cancun. I booked this hotel from Hotwire and was a bit disappointed with the location, which is just off of the highway from Cancun. We paid $50 per night and that included a buffet breakfast which was pretty good and included fresh... More

convenient to highway 307, clean, free wifi, and very reasonable price. Good choice for an overnight stop before continuing trip further south. They also offer a decent breakfast with fruit, juice etc. I've stayed at similar priced hotels in town and the noise from the restaurants and bars made it impossible to sleep, this hotel was perfect for what I...

Stayed at the City Express Playa del Carmen for the first time in a City Express Hotel. The hotel is big, clean and efficient. Check in was fast and easy, the rooms are small but they are clean, no frills, with Ikea type furniture, small closet and bathroom with hard resin plastic counters and soap/shampoo. There is a small flat... More

If you want something basic just for rest after a long day this small hotel is the option, the price is according to the facilities, the location is not bad at all is located 8 minutes from the 5th avenue (walk time), and the breakfast is very basic but good!
