This is a budget hotel. It's okay, though, and has a nice bar and tables in the lobby. The rooms were basic but fine for a night. The airco and internet worked well. We didn't pay much, so we were fine with what we got. The morning breakfast was good with lots of Mexican choices. I liked staying on the... More

Right in the middle of town, across from the park - can't be beat. We had a room overlooking the plaza; I read some complaints about noise, but I could say the same about any hotel in the the heart of any city anywhere. If you arrive by bus - don't do what we did. The hotel is 2 blocks... More

This was a great little hotel that has great character, with central location, and close to everything. It has a lovely swimming pool, and restaurant in the hotel. We had a room that overlooked the center plaza in the town. We were able to watch carnival celebrations from our small balcony on the second floor. Showers were hot, and has... More

Very central with some of the louder rooms overlooking the plaza. Most others face inwards towards the popular restaurant and somewhat exposed pool (which we didnt use). This may cause issues for some as the windows also face the courtyard, but nothing a pair of travel essential earplugs could not fix. Staff were extremely helpful (English speaking was no issue...

I stayed in this hotel in January, 2015. It is located in the heart of Valladolid overlooking the main Plaza. It is about 50m to the main cathedral. The hotel itself is showing its age a bit. That being said, it is clean, which is my main criteria. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They did not speak any... More

We booked a room with a balcony and fridge. There was supposed to be also a wifi. We were given the noisiest room from first floor without fridge. Wifi wasn´t workin there. Sure there was a "balcony", but no chairs to sit. Our balcony was faced to the main street. We decided to ask for changing the room. It succeeded.... More

the hotel was situated directly on the main square, in the middle of all the action. We found the room to be adequate, clean and a good value for the money. the restaurant was good if a little pricey on some items. Overall a great stay and look forward to visiting this city again.

Didn't stay at the hotel, but had a TERRIFIC lunch on the way to Merida here. Great location en el centro, yucateca food was delicious, folks were very nice. Dining area is open to the street; hotel is behind with breezeways opening towards pool (motel style). Me gusto mucho!
