We did a road trip around Chiapas and I chose this hotel for different aspects . In this specific trip I look for hotels that covered five important aspects that are fundamental in a hotel (in fact in all kind of business according with the marketers). Price : I found a good deal on Expedia.com for standard room and received... More

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night as part of a tour. The location is good for visiting the Palenque ruins and not much else. It is not in the hotel zone and our tour guide insisted on accompanying us when we had to go down the road to use the ATM. Apparently the town can get quite dangerous.... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights despite the bad reviews here, what a regret. It´s an old hotel with extremely bad service and negative attitude. Dont stay there ever, when I complained about the dirty rooms we never got that resolved, and after 3 calls the receptionist said as soon as they have time they... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Tulija Express Hotel last Nov. 24-26, 2012. At first I was really hesitant to book this hotel after reading some of the reviews, but because of a good deal I got in the internet we decided to give it a try. When we arrived in the hotel the bell boy was very attentive... More

We've spent two nights here in Palenque at this Hotel. We were on our way through Mexico and we stopped here to see the famous ruins. We chose this place mostly because we got a good deal online. It's right at the main road and right next to a Chedraui (like a mexican Walmart), which was convenient to shop some... More

I was happy to be in the room that we were placed in. It was part of the new rooms that had been added on to the hotel. The rooms were state of the art. I had a chance to take a look at the older rooms and they were horrible to say the least. The internet was poor and... More

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel. Hotel very well located with commodities just around (little supermarket, cash machine). The room was clean, quiet with air conditioned, beautiful bathroom. The hotel has also a restaurant and a pool. The team was nice and always available. I recommend this hotel.

This is our second stay at the Tulija Express. The manager had given our junior suite to another customer when we arrived, so we stayed in a regular room the first night and then changed to the junior suite for the next two nights. There wasn't that much difference between the two rooms, except for a couple of extra mirrors... More

Yes it is cheap and if you just need a place to stop of after visiting the palenque ruins it is an option (if your not fussy). Rooms in the old section are from the 70's long forgotten - tired and dingy. They give the impression of being dirty even though they are clean. Rooms in the new section are... More

I am an independent traveler, a 68-year old woman. When I first checked in (having made my reservation on-line at least a week or two ahead) I was given a room on the ground floor which had a sliding glass door open to the garden. The lock on this door was broken, so it could not be locked. THIS WAS... More
