Was ok for the night. If I visited again, I'd stay somewhere else. The room was small but clean. I feel it was overpriced for what it was. It's close to several restaurants and about a 10 minute walk from the large supermarket. You can use the pool across the road for 40 pesos. We didn't eat at the restaurant... More

Away from the hustle and bustle of the city square, this hotel is perfectly located close to the ADO bus station (just a few blocks away) and a 10-minute walk to the restaurants and shopping where the locals go across the bridge to the city square area. There are lots of trees in this area which keeps it shady and... More

I spent only one night here but I was satisfied with my room. Comfy beds, functioning air con, lots of space and a great shower. The onsite restaurant was a bit pricey, but it was within easy walking distance to other restaurants, bars and the bus station.

Clean room, bit very small and simple. Bathroom clean and functional, intense shower - very nice. You could peak in the bathroom via a small window which you cant cover, thats definately not done. For the initial price of 640 pesos a bit too expensive IMO, the second night we got it reduced to 550.

This functional, minimalist hotel is all you need if you are staying the night to get an early run at the magnificent ruins of Palenque. Good value for what you pay. It is 5 mins walk from the ADO bus station but more importantly it is off the main streets of the town which are pretty rough and grubby. The... More

First of all, the woman at reception was not welcoming at all and came off as quite rude. It's a good location, and nice restaurants next door. Our room was right next to the courtyard, so it had little privacy and we were woken up very early by other guests - perhaps request not to stay on the ground floor.... More

My wife and I went to this hotel and it was great. Nice location, decent price. The only complain I have is that in our room (24) the shower window has no sight blocking and led directly to the main stairs.

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
