To be truthful: my overall opinion is rather bad then good. I start however with good things about that place. The location is by one of the main streets, so the taxis are passing there all the time. The price is very reasonable, and it was even a bit reduced while paying at the hotel. The staff is very nice... More

Came in very late and settle here. The first room had a noisy A/C and broken shower drain. Asked for another room with an A/C that worked but was semi-clean, leaky toilet and needed major renovation. Will not return to this hotel.

we were up and down looking for a cheap room with a swimming pool for the kids (yea i know right!) but each place we checked was either too pricey or booked. thats when we ran into our knight and shinning armor, El Prinincipe ;) lol The hotel is ok, don't expect a 5 star for the price to pay.....

An adventurous stay. We were given room 411, which turned out to be the worst room in this already very bad hotel. There was mold on the ceiling and the doors because of water that came in through the roof. They haven't opened a window or the door since days so the mold was all over in the air and... More

Well, where do I start... I have stayed at Hotel Principe on roughly 3 separate occasions and I must say, they got me as their long term customer. Although the rooms are not impeccable, I must say the staff are all VERY HELPFUL! Which definitely makes the experience Great and the price is great also! On one occasion my girl... More

Just awful. They couldnt find our reservation first, and had to wait an hour for them to find out. The hotel is Noisy, dirty, small, unconfortable... Pool seemed really disgusting. I would never, ever, stay there again. Better to sleep in the car or not at all...

The rooms are basic, we only stayed overnight but the staff were super helpful with us non English speakers. The air con is very noisy so it's either cool and noisy or hot but quiet. It's a little bit of a walk to get to the main part of town but we don't mind walking.

Overall a nice stay for a missions trip. No wash cloths or shower mats but it is Mexico . Be careful of the shower water, ours was hot enough to kill!! You have to turn the knob several times to get the water to come on. TV was OK but no remote. Ac did have a remote and worked great.

It was the worst hotel on our journey and I would definately not recommand it. We slept in a big and clean room, but it was very noisy and definately uncomfortable, little like a hospital. The staff was ok and friendly but the restaurant was horror, also really like a cafeteria of a hospital. I won´t go there again, it... More
