It is ok to stay 1 night in Palenque and easily reach the center for dinner. The rooms have space, air conditioning, ceiling fan and other services such as the hairdrier, the wifi connection and the TV. The general atmosphere is relaxing and welcoming and you can have good rest here. There is no wardrobe but just a small space...

Palenque is a true Mexican tourist town and generally caters to the Mexican market. Accommodation is limited in choice in Palenque, but this was a good one for us. Located in La Canada - the best part to be, away from the bustle of city life in downtown. Convenient for ADO, catching collectivos and a short walk into town as...

A perfect little place that's conveniently located a comfortably short distance from the ADO bus station. If you stay there, don't take a taxi from the ADO bus terminal, unless you absolutely have to. Nice room maybe a tad small, but for the price that's acceptable. Soap and shampoo is supplied. Very nice and clean bathroom. No breakfast, and hot...

This review is 4 vs. 5-star -- not from a fault at the hotel -- because I am reviewing for US and Canadian visitors, some of whom are not likely to embrace this small, locally-owned accommodation and/or its location. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the staff is friendly, helpful and genuinely curious about the lifestyles and home towns of...

Hey travelmates :-) I stayed in Hotel Xibalba for three nights, nothing to complain about. Hotel Xibalba is located in a small cobble stone side street, surrounded by plenty of trees which grant some nice refreshing shadow. My room was clean and equipped with ceiling fan, air con and TV (although some channels could not received properly). City center is...

This hotel was quiet, clean and has a cuteness factor. The staff were ok, but I am sure I met the owner and we was eager to please. The location is excellent for walking to the Bus station, taking a collectivo or Taxi and you can even walk to a large grocery store in about 20 minutes. All amenities worked...

My family of 4 stayed in a room with 2 double beds for 3 nights. Simple room with firm beds, everything was clean, good A/C.

I wanted a decent mid-range hotel in Palenque and ended up staying there twice, when driving from Merida to San Cristóbal. During our first stay we were in the annex and later we got a room in the main building. The rooms in the Annex are simpler, a bit smaller and we had the hotels water pumps just outside our...

The room was spotless. Everything worked fine: A/C, fan, screeens, in-bathroom-safe. Room at back of main building was very quiet for sleeping. Minimal English spoken, but all staff were very cordial and friendly. A pot of coffee is on from 5:00am for those with an early departure of a tour to Yaxchilan. Restaurant hours undefind. Seemed to be closed in...

We are on a budget so we were looking for a decent place to stay for a reasonable price. We really enjoyed Hotel Xibalba. Apparently Xibalba is the Mayan word for hell so we stayed in "hotel hell."
