“Airy, Colorful and Economical”
Reviewed October 16, 2011

"Chilum Balam" is the title for a collection of ancient Mayan writngs and this wonderful small hotel is Mayan themed with bright, colorful wall murals throughout. The rooms are large with nice bathrooms. The accomodations are thoughtfully decorated and have a/c and tv. The staff is attentive and the lobby has an amusing small collection of antiques and relics. I paid 350 pesos for a double room which is cheaper than a similar but smaller room in the well known hostel on the same steert, Chilum Balam is located 3 blocks north of the ADO bus station on the other side of the street. Numerous restaurants line Av. Tulum in the blocks around the hotel.
