Lets be honest, there are not many places to choose from in Villahermosa, especially if you are on a budget. Hotel Oriente is a well run, centered and clean hotel, but don't expect any charm. There is free drinking water and the people at the reception are friendly. The building is on a busy street, not far from the bus terminal, but you still need a cab. That turned out to be a huuuuuuge problem for us since we came in during the hours of "trafico" and there were no cabs available (even thought there are so many cabs in Villahermosa). Also beware that many cabs in Villahermosa are "colectivo" which means they take various passengers and charge you less, but if you are not going the way the others are, the cab just won't take you. A cab from the hotel to La Venta (the park with Olmec heads) is about 30 pesos.
