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

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.

Not near downtown, but can walk or take a taxi there. Otherwise is all good. Nice, clean confortable rooms, quiet and relaxing. We stayed in a room with 3 double beds, all very comfy, bathroom clean and good toiletries, no bothers what so ever, our room was even close to a lovely 2nd floor terrace. No problem with AC or...

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
