The interiors are very old, you can see old stains on the ground and some on towels and blankets but overall it was still a clean place! The staff only spoke Spanish so make sure you brush up on your Spanish skills and beware of slow wifi. 눇The location was good enough where taxi rides would range from 30-50 pesos... More

It's definitely not in the middle of all the expensive & crowded tourist attractions, which was perfect for me. It's conveniently located near the main avenue Tulum which houses all the major commercial areas, casinos, bars, restaurants, etc. It's across the street from a large shopping-area called Mercado-28 that has a bus that comes every hour on the hour from...

We stayed two nights on our way out of Mexico. The room was quiet and clean. The floors could use a real mopping is my only complaint. The staff speak Spanish only but very nice. Cute and yummy sandwich/breakfast down the street.

I stayed here overnight to catch a connecting flight the following day. The hotel is right across the street from Mercado 28, which is an ok place to look at touristy trinkets, or get a quick bite. Not far from bus station and El Centro, and close to some inexpensive restaurants. Its cheap, old, beds are semi comfortable, room smells... More

If you are looking for luxury, stay someplace else. Cost per night is 200-400 more in neighboring hotels so this fit my buget. You better be fairly fluent in Spanish, not too much Enlish spoken. I found the hotel location and staff are very good. I only slept there as I spent most of my time out and about. The... More

Thank you for your review. There are hotel choices for every taste and budget. One of the things we do not offer is luxury. We did offer a very affordable rate at 33 USD per night for a room with private bathroom, air conditioning, double beds, wi fi access, parking and other small amenities. We are sorry that you found... More

I have stayed here two separate times, both for two nights. Once in December 2013 and again in February 2014. The online rates are amazing, especially for what you get. It is not the fanciest hotel around but you get more than what you need plus a little more. The rooms are comfortable with two large beds, a little sitting... More

Next to the market 28. Walking distance to the main bus station (though you will need directions) Took the bus to the hotel zone for 75 cents which was well worth not spending tons of money for all inclusive .
