The room smelled like sewage - the smell came from the bath room. And the bad sheets were with stains... Also the internet in the room was very slow (low wifi signal). The front desk were very nice and helpful. My girlfriend and I would not recommend the hotel.

Don't expect elegance here, but the room was very clean and comfortable, the location (1 minute from the beach) was excellent and the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly! The a/c kept the room quite comfortable, and the Wi-Fi gave me no problems at all. Our room was at the end of the interior courtyard (complete with a little patio/terrace),... More

I mainly picked this hotel for location, near the main street and bus stations. Room was OK, air conditioning worked, atmosphere was nice. Never saw anyone using the pool so I wondered if there was something wrong with it. The wifi never worked, which is really becoming an essential amenity for me. If you can't offer decent wifi, just don't... More

Staff was very friendly, room was clean, but it was impossible to get a good night sleep because of the bars at the corner. Loud music all night long. Swimming pool more decorative than for real swimming. Shower: not warm enough + jets weren't working. Airconditioning wasn't always responding either.

I enjoyed my stay at kinbe hotel. It is very well located(near avenida quinta and beach). The staff is very friendly and will give you free tickets to the nearby beach club. They were making renovations when I was there so it was noisy at times but never too early or too late.

Perfect location, nice pool, friendly staff. The rooms all have a very high standard for a quite good price. The beach is 2 minutes away - a nice swim in the morning in the sea or in the nice hotel pool is an easy thing to do. All bars, clubs and restaurants in the centre are near by. I only... More

Kinbe was the exact place we were looking for: great price, it has the most perfect location imaginable for "independent" tourists - a two minute walk from the beach or less and the same distance to the 5th with all the restaurants and other amenities.It has a beautiful garden - great for pictures- and being in the middle of a...

We travel to Playa every year and have stayed at various resorts during our stay. This year, after spending a week at a resort, we decided to stay a few extra nights in downtown Playa. Kinbe Hotel is a small, clean and easy access hotel right in the middle of downtown Playa. It's off 5th Avenue down the street from... More

If you are on the high maintenance side of things, I wouldn't recommend this hotel. However, f you want to feel the local life up close go for it. The location is amazing, customer service is great, and the overall architectural style is Playa themed. Some rooms have uncomfortable shower floors but hey, it's playa and they use volcanic rocks...
