I just want to say I was very impressed with this hotel! This was a last minute trip I took a chance in going to Ensenada without a room booked and I have 5 other people coming with me! I was very surprised to have found a room on the same day considering it was a busy weekend in Baja.... More

The El Cid was a good choice for us first-timers to Ensenada. The location is great, right in the middle of the tourist zone. Within walking distance, you have all types of shops, cafes, restaurants, and street-food vendors. Less than 10 minutes down to the Malecon or Fish Market. To the beach, it's a 30 minute walk. The staff at... More

The location is wonderful. Close to the touristy things in Ensenada, plus within short driving times for the Ruta de... More

I stayed with my wife in this hotel for three nights. I traveled for business purposes, but my wife was on vacation. The hotel is very centric. There are a lot of restaurants, café and bar near the hotel. The room was clean, with a fridge, a mini-split air conditiones and a flat screen with cable. The only two problems... More

Hotel is centrally located with safe parking, the room was comfortable and the staff went out of their way to make things enjoyable. The staff was LGBT friendly and recommended great restaurants near by. Will stay there again. Ensenada is a very safe town and was the drive from the Border!

The Ensenada fish market is an interesting sight with lots of fresh fish and about every type of seafood to eat right there or take with you. The hotel in located in an ideal city location. Its close to the harbor, city and very quiet. The building is older,... More

nice place to spend a night, old hotel, but very clean and great staff. Room was on 5 floor no elevator. Parking was good. Did not like the way the room was setup, it has a 2 step difference from the entrance to the rest of the room.
