I have stayed at the Hotel Tres Cruces on severla trips and several occasions. So why all the varying reviews on TA about this place? It all depends on what you are looking for and expecting.
First off, the place is "cheap", and that usually does NOT mean luxury. It equates mor eto "dorm room" in the US. And that is what the rooms look like, small dorm room size with typically two beds, a dresser and TV, a chair and a small table. the walls will not be wallpapered or freshly painted, and will probably show a yer or two worth of scuffs from peoples luggage on them. The beds are comfortabel though, and that is really what matters most.
The bathrooms are a good size, but again, no luxury here. Simple tile, LOTS of hot water and good pressure. Clear windows outside with no shades on them may bother you if you are modest. Or shower at night with the lights off I guess.
The hotel is located across from the women's prison (I kid you not) which looks like an old church (because it is). Nothing ever happens there, so this should not concern you, but it is kind of "funky" in that regard. The bus station is about 1.5 city blocks away, thus if yo are a bus traveller this is VERY convenient. However do not think you can just get a room with no reservation, as this place is often completely booked up. Probably due to that same bus station proximity.
The continental breakfast is small, simple, but edible. I have had better, and I have had worse. this is maybe a bit below avge.
Staff is errtic. Some are VERY nice, some are difficult. the maids are great, most of the front desk is fine, one or two are a bit forward. They are efficiant, and it is easy to get in and out here.
IN SUMMARY: When I am in MVD alone, this is my FIRST CHOICE. I usually have a car, it is cheap, and I am usually not spending time in the hotel except to sleep and shower. Inthat respect, this place is absolutely perfect. Would I take my family to stay here? Not really. there are much nicer places to stay for not too much more money. This is my MVD "crash pad" when alone.
If you are not too picky, or on a budget, or travelling by bus, this is the place for you. If you are looking for large well appointed rooms, luxury, a nice restaurant, things to do in the 'hood, this is definitely not the place.
For value I don;t think you csan do better than this hotel. Just do not net your sights too high and you will be fine. think "dorm room" all the way.
I started this review by saying I have stayed her many times, and I will stay here again. I like it for what it is, simple and cheap. But if I stay with others, I go to the Ermitage.
