“Unique design hotel with real 50ies flair”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

The hotel is located a bit off from the new Acapulco in the older area. Very quiet street and all rooms with sea view. The big surprise was that you can open completly the window from floor to ceiling and have a view to the sea from your bed. On the balcony you have a hammock and relaxing table and chairs. Another suprise was the mezcal and champagne which they offer in the mini bar. There is also an iPhone docking station. Very nice and gives a unique flair are the 50ies style very short bathrobes.
Nice personell in the restaurant and reception and good mexican breakfast. In the evening you get fusion dinners offered, specially good fresh sushi. We ordered a taxi for the evening and unfortunatly let him wait half an hour. He still was very friendly and took us to our destination.
Also nice is the pool with great service. I got a coconut mixed with gin. After finishing they opened it for me and served it with chillie powder.
Whenever I am again in Acapulco I will stay there.

Room Tip: All are good. The suites have a round the room balcony.

We expected a nice deco and we were not desappointed. This hotel has style and offers a good restaurant so you don't need to leave the vincinity - which is actually better! - . It could be a great place for a week-end / a long week-end if it wasn't for the omnipresent and very loud music. No place you can seat, read or eat without music. On top of that, they play the same pre-recorded music every day, so after two and a half days we were glad to leave!!

Great bit of 1950s glamour in Acapulco. Airy, relaxing place which merits a stay. Wifi a bit patchy though and we could have done with more clarification on what was and what wasn't included for breakfast. Also the main desk totally failed to book us an early morning taxi (after asking) to the bus station which caused a fair bit of panic. A good place to escape the madness of Acapulco - was very peaceful and overall a great stylish place to stay.

This place must have the coolest deco I've ever seen in a hotel - love the style, the atmos - it felt just like hotel citroën from the Life Aquatic (but a little less rundown). Airy, and dramatic, the rooms look over tourist trodden acapulco which, if it weren't for this hotel, is frankly worth missing. The mini bar was laden with more goodies than anywhere I've ever seen and water ski ing with the manager on a nearby lake was epic! I only wish they had sent the 50 thank you postcards we asked them to send to our wedding guests that they charged us $200 and then ended up not doing.

Super friendly staff! Nice and clean rooms.
And the restaurant is really good! Would recommend the fish tacos for lunch!
The hotel is absolutley worth a re-visit but the city's not so much.
Probably wouldn't go here for a vacation..

We went there last week with our dog. Staff is super helpful and friendly, the hotel is super clean and is recently renovated. The view is awesome, specially from the restaurant and the pool. Location is convinient, close to downtown and places of interest. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Try to get an Ocean view room if possible

OK, so the great pro about this hotel at least for us is that they take dogs of any size. The hotel has been refurbished but in the end is an old hotel barely 4 stars. The room is big, but the flooring has a rough/scratchy texture making it look dirty and not nice to walk barefoot. The room had a terrace but only one -rusty- chair in it and the plants there were all dry and yellowish, it would've been better to remove those. Talking about location, the hotel is in the oldest part of Acapulco, in the low-end beach of Caletilla, and far from the modern area of Diamante. It doesn't have its own beach; there is a beach next to the hotel, you can ask the bell boy to open the gate for you so you can mix with the literally thousands of locals who make it there every weekend. There are no dining options nearby and the dining options at the hotel are very limited and the service extremely slow. If you venture to dine out, the traffic is really heavy to get the costera which could take you up to an hour. The staff is just ok, nothing special, so all in all, not sure if I would return, this area of Acapulco has seen better days and the hotel has nothing special.
