This hotel is just perfect. The room was big and very clean, bed was very comfy. The location is very good in a quite area but close to everything. I would definitely stay here again, nothing to complain about for this price range.

The choices in Palenque are either in town or a few minutes by taxi to the larger, more resort type places near the ruins. For in town the La Canada area is certainly the way to go, as the rest of the town is not particularly charming. Good rates on Booking.com via Trip Advisor. you will pay 200 p more... More

Great hotel. Quiet mornings in the Cananda hotel district with inexpensive breakfast, close to colectivos for transportation to the ruins. Make sure you can speak some Spanish before staying there. Nearby restaurants are spectacular.

We stayed here for two nights as part of a tour group. It was a comfortable stay - the rooms were big and really clean and the wifi seemed to work fine for most people. Could get noisy, but I think that was the case most places we stayed in Central America. The bathroom was nice and big too. The... More

Air conditioning and fan were working. The windows have a mosquito screen and the bathroom also has a window. Air circulation was good. It... More

The hotel is nice and cozy. Good value for money. Helpful staff. It was nice to find a coffee waiting for us in the morning at 6 am before the leaving and before the tour. The hotel also booked the day trip for us. Nice position next to the ADO terminal

We stayed for three nights recently so we could visit the amazing ruins at Palenque and the beautiful Misol-Ha and Agua Azul waterfalls. The hotel is located in the La Canada area, which is very pleasant and close to everything. We were minutes from the current bus station, close to several restaurants and coffee shops, and two blocks away from... More

We only stayed in Hotel Xibalba one night. We arrived early in the morning and although our room was not ready they were happy to lock up our luggage so that at we could go out and explore. The hotel is just around the corner from where you can catch a collectivo/combi to the ruins for 20 pesos. The hotel... More
