Couple blocks from main square and cathedral. Easy to walk everywhere on th Puerto Vallarta downtown and boardwalk. Nice facilities, not luxurious, but clean and comfortable.
Helpful front desk guys.
Cathedral clock could be listen very clear every 15 min. and at 6PM awesome song comes out of it.

Room Tip: Avoid staying at 4th floor. Restaurant is on the same floor and starting at 6.00 am noise starts. B...

When we checked in, the manager assured us that we would not be charged for the one of the four nights we had reserved but could not use. When we checked out, the charge was on our bill. We asked the Front Desk to call the manager so that he could approve removing the one night charge. He called and the manager refused. He told us that he would not honor his offer. You cannot TRUST them to keep their word!!!

Room Tip: Do not TRUST them to keep their agreements!

Hotel Porto Alegre is a good value for the money. IT HAS NO POOL .... just a child POOL that I would not let my child swim in. Getting past that.... the hotel is in the heart of shopping and restaurants. It is very clean, wonderful staff and free breakfast. It is about 4 blocks to an area of the beach where you can swim.
This hotel is family and gay friendly.

This hotel is a great find if your looking for a clean, comfortable, affordable place that's in a great location and includes breakfast. It's just 3 blocks in from the beach, and pleasantly located beside the Canal bridge. The hotel doesn't have the bells and whistles of a resort, no pool etc. They do however provide very clean rooms with updated baths, and very comfortable large beds. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Only negative we experienced was the room would at times have a sewage smell. Luckily that was temporary when it happened, we actually smelt that often in the city. Overall If u r looking for an affordable stay, this is a nice option. We payed $375 tax included for a 5 night stay!

This was nice and clean hotel, just what we hoped to get for our money. Location was great: beach, restaurants and shops were close enough and we could walk everywhere. The staff was very helpfull and friendly.

Location: Great to Best. Very close to Old Town or Romantic Zone. Close to restaurants and shops
Cleanness and staff: Very clean. There a few things you might consider I stayed there for almost a week, but they did not change bed sheets. I guessed you need to talk with them. I think they should change every 2-3 days.
Staff is friendly, but their English is limited, especially in the restaurant as they kept bringing the wrong food we ordered ( we ordered a simple dish like fried eggs). You need to explain for them to get it right.
Annoying things: Wifi. If you are not lucky, you are in the "No Wifi" room. I asked to change the room, but they did not want change the room, even we stayed for a whole week. Hot water: I think the hotel needs to fix this.
Toilet water: you have to wait a long time to flush the toilet. I may be smelly.
You need to book and pay online before you get into here because they give you very different price -something that you need to negotiate in Mexico, even the high standard service like hotel.
Swimming pool: very tiny. I did not use as there were 2-3 kids and they occupied the whole swimming pool.
Taxi: to the airport from the hotel ~ one fifty pesos. I think it's pretty cheap. We gave out 50 peso for tip.

Room Tip: Restaurant: La Dolce Vita. Awesome Italian food. The Swedes: great good. A bit p...
