Stayed at the City Express Playa del Carmen for the first time in a City Express Hotel.
The hotel is big, clean and efficient. Check in was fast and easy, the rooms are small but they are clean, no frills, with Ikea type furniture, small closet and bathroom with hard resin plastic counters and soap/shampoo. There is a small flat screen TV and workspace with good free wifi.
There is a view of greenery but not much to look at. The room does not have many amenities you can find in an American hotel, but you can request extra pillows, blow dryer, flat iron for no additional charge. There is free breakfast also, with tea, juice, coffee, bread, ham. Very convenient. There is a small gym and a nice pool. This hotel is an efficiency, a good practical and inexpensive hotel for travelers on business. It is not a resort, so if you're coming to Playa del Carmen for a resort vacation, this is not the place. Having come from Cancun before this stay, it is quite a jolt to no longer have a big room, lots of all inclusive endless food and beach/pool amenities.
However, the price is good and is a 10 min walk to 5th Avenue, the center of activity in Playa del Carmen and the ferry to Cozumel!More
