Stayed here for a few days while we visited Palenque. Room was very clean, bed a bit small but comfy for two people and good service from staff. Would stay again. Very close to ADO terminal. The area around the hotel is a nice tropical environment with large trees and an nice quiet street. Not much in Palenque and this... More

The location is just perfect. 5 min walk from the ADO buses, and a very good restaurant just over the street. The rooms were nice and clean, but a little small. We got to use their facilities after we checked out, waiting for the nightbus. Recommended for short stays.

The hotel was located on a street with several others which seems to be the main area in town for hotels. The restaurant in the hotel was only for breakfast but there were several restaurants within a couple of blocks. There was a lot of construction being done on the street in front of the hotel and I presume it... More

We had a big room with nice, big beds. The airconditioning worked well. Shower was nice. There was a safe in the room. Wifi was ok. Hotel is very close to the ADO bus station. A big supermarket (with ATM) is around the corner.

Stayed here on a tour. The rooms are clean with good A/C. Shower worked well. Beds are comfortable. Only complaint would be the air vents in each room which you can't close. You can hear anything that happens outside of your room, but this wasn't a major issue for us. Also close to a number of good value and tasty... More

The hotel is in a great location, just down the road from the ADO bus terminal. This is also where you can catch a collectivo to the ruins.The rooms are clean and spacious however we had little to no wifi reception and a very poor tv signal. We didn't report this as we were just there for the night so... More

This hotel is very clean and comfortable for something in the basic to mid range market. Our room had two beds , an air conditioner , in room safe, TV , decent wifi signal and a hair drier. The towels were of a reasonable quality too. It's right next door to a lovely little restaurant . Do try the prawns... More

A solid choice to spend a couple of nights at in Palenque. The street setting is lovely amongst the trees and away frpm the bustle of downtown but still only 5 mins walk away. The rooms have good AC and hot showers and plenty of room. The restaurant is pretty average and I would go elsewhere to eat. There is... More

We stayed 2 nights whilst on a tour and the place was nice and clean. It has a nice bed and breakfast feel to it (minus the breakfast as it wasn't included in our package). Showers are good with hot water and bathrooms were decent. It has a safe in the bathroom as well. Down the road is Jade cafe... More
