“AVOID VILLAHERMOSA! City of two lies... no villa, not pretty”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

We went to Villahermosa in order to avoid a round trip back to Tuxtla after seeing the ruins of Palenque, which is a two hour drive from Villahermosa.

The city is hideous. Olmeca Plaza is in the "historical" section, but that only dates back to the late 1950´s. Lobby of hotel and restaurant fine. The rooms are GRIM and pressed up practically next to other commercial buildings. Dreary dreary dreary and depressing. The shower was new and good. There was a terrible chemical odor early in the morning that woke me up about 4 AM. Awful. Windows were closed and only the fan was on, so couldn´t tell where the stench was coming from. Very polite staff.

Room Tip: There must be something better in this awful town.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We "booked" this hotel in the airport, got free transfer to the hotel and 3 days later back (a normal price for taxi is around 200 pesos once way), service was very nice, they asked all our questions, tried to help us to organize trips to the sea, Yumka etc. First room we got was not very nice, so we asked to change it and got a very-very nice room with a very big and very clean bathroom. It was first time in hotel in Mexico when I didn't feel disgusting to take shower bare feet.
In the restaurant they serve an amazing pineapple juice. Want it more and more.. So tasty! Like nowhere else in Mexico.
Gym was very poor and kind of dirty (there were some other people sweat, but why didn't they used towels???), breakfast was not included, but you could find a buffet for 150 pesos that consisted from pure meat.. So if someone is vegetarian, just walk a bit and you will find a nice place to have a much cheaper breakfast.

Horrible, dirty, overpriced & rips you off for breakfast. The fitness center was foul, completely outdated and infested with mosquitos. Stay somewhere cheap near the bus station or the airport if you must go through Villahermosa.

i stayed in the hotel just because i had to attend a business meeting there, and they had a good offer at a very cheap price at the moment. bad location in downtown noisy and dirty area. rooms are outdated and old, and look very different from what they show in their website. cheap internet access. good attitude from hotel staff. television was not working.

Having booked this hotel because it had a crib we arrived late at night to be told that there was probably no crib. One materialised about an hour later. The room had no natural light, was not quite clean and was generally subpar for a relatively pricey hotel. Most of all, however, the staff were exceptionally rude and unfriendly, which is unusual in Mexico.
