Stayed here for two nights in June of 2016, and I would give it an overall rating of an A- on a scale of A to F. It is very good. The rooms were nice and comfortable, and the hotel was situated in an area of town with multiple restaurants to choose from. Wifi did not work in the room,... More

I stayed here with a traveling group for three nights at the end of April. Because it was so hot, the highest priority was good air conditioning--and the air con was great! Wifi was good, my room was big and clean, shower was terrific, everything about the place was great. Five stars for sure.

*I stayed at this hotel as part of a tour with Intrepid. This hotel was located just across the street from the bus stop, on 'hotel row' which is a cobbled stone road that has a number hotels along both sides. This road leads straight through the town and to the centre of the city - by foot this is... More

Clean and inexpensive hotel located in the heart of the Palenque hotel district. Very friendly and helpful staff, and a convenient location. Some rooms are larger than others. We asked for a different room than the one we were shown, and the staff was happy to move us.

Lovely big rooms and bathrooms with a safe. Plenty of hot water for showers. Nicely kept on a pleasant street. Downside had to be the noise. The rooms faced into the hotel and any noise echo'd around making ear plugs very useful. Good breakfast. The service was slow, but it was tasty and affordable. There was also access to water...

Wasn't expecting much compared to the standard of other hotels on our recent Tucan tour, but was pleasantly surprised by this one. Lovely location, with rooms surrounding an airy courtyard. Stayed for 3 nights and the towels of everyone in our group were made into new creatures adorned with flower petals each day which was a nice touch. This hotel... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. It is in the La Canada district which is a beautiful and quiet part of town. The rooms are very clean, great accomodating staff, AC, safes in the room and just a pleasant all around atmosphere.

Hotel Xibalba is a great mid-range option in Palenque, with good value for money. The hotel is located in the leafy la canada zone, which is peaceful and pretty. It's conveniently located just 200m from the ADO bus station and the main road where you can hail collectivos to the ruins. Heading the other way, it's a quick 5 minute... More

Sadly we only stayed at this hotel for one night but it was lovely. The road this hotel is in, is beautiful...very green vegetation. It is a 20 min bus ride to the fantastic temples of Palenqe. The room was big, well equipped with hair drier etc. Our night bus did not leave until 2300 hrs and so for 350... More
