“All Good - Great layover hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

This is the perfect hotel when you have a tay or two layover between flights. In a commercial area of Cancun, the hotel is a wonderful place to hangout. Nice rooms, free WiFi. A small pool, Wonderful, helpful front desk. Walkable distance to truly memorable dining. Ask at the front desk for recommendations.

For the price, the Grand City hotel is actually a pretty decent hotel close to everything in downtown Cancun (there's a Walmart across the street) and a few blocks from Avenidad Tulum. The rooms are very clean and quite large. AC, flat screen TV, wifi and a free continental breakfast are provided. There's also a small pool in the courtyard. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The only problem with this hotel is that staying there is like playing Russian roulette....There's a biker bar just down the street. Some nights, there is very LOUD music...making sleep impossible before 2AM, some nights, everything is very quiet.... Sooooo, if you're planning to stay at the Grand City, bring a pair of ear plugs!

Room Tip: The best rooms are those to the left of the courtyard (when facing the courtyard), furthest away fro...

We found the Grand City Hotel very clean and well maintained. The rooms are very spacious and the bathrooms are also a good size with everything you could want. The pool is small but it is also a short walk to the ocean which we prefere anyway. There were some late night noisy bars next door but we were not bothered by them during the week were were there. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we had no language issues at all. As stated in one of the reviews the Grand City Hotel is a perfect low budget option for Cancun.

Room Tip: Grand City Hotel is a perfect low budget option for Cancun.

The Grand City Hotel is the perfect low budget option for Cancun. The hotel is new, the rooms are big and well furnished (including microwave, coffee machine, small fridge), they look nice and everything (inside and outside around the pool) looks very clean. We had a car and everything was easy to reach. As I mentioned in the title it was almost perfect: the only problem is the loud bar at the end of the street playing live hard rock music every night till 2 am. Nevertheless we would go back!!

This is a hotel in the city that has been wonderfully maintained/renovated. Rooms are large, spotlessly clean, with large clean, well appointed bathrooms. It is important to realize that this is not a resort hotel on the beach. It does have a small swimming pool and a small, clean indoor/outdoor cafe.
My wife and I do not speak Spanish. There was always a bilingual person at the desk who was quick to come and help us order at the cafe. The staff was uniformly pleasant and helpful. The desk was always friendly and willing to help us with directions and suggestions for local restaurants and shops.
This would be our first choice for a layover stop in Cancun.

We agree with all the positive reviews about the Grand City. As long as you don't expect a Mega resort, or in the Hotel zone, this is an excellent choice in Cancun. It is close to the Bus Depot if you are travelling within the Yucatan (we're returning from Merida) and is close to several small restaurants and a few bars. Our room was well-appointed and very clean, the wifi signal was strong, and the restaurant and small pool were clean and quiet. It is on a busy street, but we had very little traffics noise in our room. If you want a nice room for a layover before flying home, or want to be the Bus Depot, this is a good, economical choice.

A modern hotel. That means large bathroom with hot and large stream of water, simple yet decent breakfast, internet access for free (although the signal isn't very strong, it just about works well enough), night time reception and a fridge. Stuff like the bus station and certainly the beach aren't very near bye, but the taxis are aplenty and very cheap (certainly after negotiating). There's a very loud, very popular bar on the street corner, which depending on your room location might get you up all night. Ask for the one farthest away if you come to sleep. Beds are quite hard but not uncomfortable.
