Was in this hotel in early May. Good enough for the price you pay. There’s free purified water for refilling, free internet Access and computers available. I did not have a chance to eat at their restaurant so I can’t say how good it is although y can easily say looks pretty clean to me. It is located just a... More

We were stuck in a city where we literally went to 12 hotels and there were no rooms available. BOOK IN ADVANCE. We had to stay here. Yes- you read that right. There was no place else to stay. No matter if you were willing to pay $80-500 USD. There was no other place to stay. This had never happened... More

If I were to go back I wouldn’t spend the night at Villahermosa (which contrary to its name (Beautiful city) is not so interesting. I would go straight to Palenque and stay at any of the small hotels on Merle Green street, the new trendy place of the city, so close to the ADO bus terminal that you can just... More

The air con is good and the rooms are adequate and clean. I came in to some amazing towel art. I didnt use the restaurant, although yes you can hear all the noise in the 'corridor' despite my being in the end room which had no window onto the 'corridor.' My big disappointment was that there was no pool and... More

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
