You never know what you're going to get when you book a room at an unknown hotel. This hotel was a bit of a walk from the collectivo stop on Calle 20, but only a couple of streets from the less central bus station (also Calle 20), and a five-minute walk to the northern end of Calle 5. We had rm 25, which is a corner room and has three balconies, a very comfy king-sized bed, a microwave, a lounging area, and a small dining table with chairs. Air conditioning, cable, safe in room. The room was very well priced and included the BEST breakfast we ate in a hotel in the Yucatan: a varied and delicious buffet. The staff spoke English and were very helpful: they let us leave our bags at the hotel for the day, while we explored the city (our flight out was late that night). Probably one of the best deals we had during our entire three-week stay in Yucatan. There were lots of good small restaurants near the hotel, too, and a Pelican mega store.

Room Tip: Room 25--what can I say? Have a look at the pix.

A 5 min walk to 5th Ave and a 10 min walk to the beach, spacious, clean room and bathroom. Delightful, helpful staff, great coffee shop open for breakfast right next door ( 50 pesos- my room rate did not include breakfast) and superb local restaurants all with 3 min of the hotel. If and when I return to Play del Carmen I will stay here not in the fully inclusive large hotels. Many many thanks -

We were pleasantly surprised at this Hotel in Playa del Carmen. Parking was readily available. Check-in process was quick. You can either take the elevator or walk up the stairs to the 3rd floor. The room was spacious, very very clean, not too overly decorated, and location was the best: very close to 5th Ave. Our $40-per-night rate included tax and breakfast for 2. Breakfast was great too. Eggs, potatoes, fresh fruit, cereal, coffe, milk, toast, orange juice, purified water. I will come back again to Cancun, Playa, and Tulum. This is the hotel where I will stay next time I visit Playa del Carmen

My partner and I were looking for a hotel late at night, after looking at 3 hotels we found Hotel Plaza Playa and were relieved! The price was really affordable and it comes with breakfast. Hotel staff were really nice. And the place was impeccable. Highly recommend.

We stayed here five nights and really liked this hotel. It is perfectly located to many of our favorite reataurants; el Fogon is literally right around the corner, as are la Ceiba and el Nativo. Kaxapa factory is a few minutes away, on the walk to the beach. The beach and fifth avenue are a 5-10 minute stroll away, wifi is exceptionally good. We did not eat at the hotel's cafe but it looked fine. There is also a lavanderia two or three doors down from reception that will wash dry and fold your laundry same day, for a great price. Mega is right around the corner and across the street if you need a grocery/superstore. The entire hotel is very clean, beds are typical mexican hotel beds, very firm, although that seemed to be good for my back. If you appreciate being close to great restaurants and the beach, but want to be a little removed from the tourist zone, this is a great pick!

I live here in Playa and needed a hotel for a night and was my second visit here. What a deal best describes this hotel....great place, people and location....spotless and nice room with king size bed. no pool if that is important. Good location few blocks from beach and close to good restaurants and grocery stores. When it comes to value, this cannot be beat...much nicer than low price might indicate.

Nice, clean, confortable . I definitely recomended it. For the price is one of the best options in town. per 5 dlls you can have a mini buffet includes coffee, juice, fruit, cereal, yogurth, and scramble eggs, beens, bread very good, is better to take breakfast there and begin your way. Is near from the 5th avenue, a store type walmart where you cand find any thing you needed and a lots of restaurants with a lot of opcion since hotdogs until crab legs, you cand find whatever you needed
