We've spent two nights here in Palenque at this Hotel. We were on our way through Mexico and we stopped here to see the famous ruins.

We chose this place mostly because we got a good deal online. It's right at the main road and right next to a Chedraui (like a mexican Walmart), which was convenient to shop some mexican products in the evening.

You can reach "downtown" from here by foot in about 15-20 minutes, if you don't mind to walk in the heat. For us, the location was fine.
The Check-In was just alright. Fast, but could have been warmer and friendlier. The rooms are pretty standard, ours was recently refurbished...but still average. It was clean enough and ok for two nights. Our room was next to a pretty quiet road, so the sleep we had was fine.
There's also a pool with hammocks and beach chairs. It was fine to hang out a little. But the pool water was green and had a thick, green layer on top. Not really inviting. The only one's attracted to that were the mosquitoes.
There is a quite nice lounge area too with a cool pool table (50 peso for one hour). So we just ordered some pizza, opened a bottle of wine and played some pool in the evening. That was pretty fun. The Hotel also has a restaurant which does the room service (the Club Sandwich was fair priced and pretty good).
There's also free WiFi, but that requires some luck...the rooms in the back are too far away from the signal.

All in all it's a very average place. Location's fine, because there's not much to see in town. It's a nice town, but you don't need to stay IN town overnight. A walk in the daytime's good enough to see Palenque.
And for the ruins you need a taxi anyway. You can get a private one (70 peso) or share a van (10 peso pp).
If you don't mind not staying in one of the ruins close-by resorts, then this is an option. Not great, but fine for a night or two.

I was happy to be in the room that we were placed in. It was part of the new rooms that had been added on to the hotel. The rooms were state of the art. I had a chance to take a look at the older rooms and they were horrible to say the least. The internet was poor and only avaible in a few areas. The staff was not helpful and unkind. If you go, please stay in one of the nicer rooms.

Room Tip: You must stay in the new part that has just been added. The old rooms are horrible.

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel.
Hotel very well located with commodities just around (little supermarket, cash machine).
The room was clean, quiet with air conditioned, beautiful bathroom.
The hotel has also a restaurant and a pool.

The team was nice and always available.

I recommend this hotel.

This is our second stay at the Tulija Express. The manager had given our junior suite to another customer when we arrived, so we stayed in a regular room the first night and then changed to the junior suite for the next two nights. There wasn't that much difference between the two rooms, except for a couple of extra mirrors and a flat screen tv in the junior suite. The place is clean, but is terribly worn and in desperate need of major renovations. The restaurant has great breakfasts, but I wouldn't recommend it for other meals. The hotel is ok for the price you pay, but don't expect any frills.

Yes it is cheap and if you just need a place to stop of after visiting the palenque ruins it is an option (if your not fussy). Rooms in the old section are from the 70's long forgotten - tired and dingy. They give the impression of being dirty even though they are clean. Rooms in the new section are much better with safe and modern feel. Its pot luck which one you get. There is the pool with broken sun loungers.

It isnt where booking.com says it is. It is outside of town a long way from anything. Be warned! There is a new section and an old section. Be careful when booking. The images are of the newer rooms and then they put you in the older rooms. We stated this be seeing as the staff couldn't care less, we didnt get very far. The hotel is in dire need of a revamp. you'd be better off staying in town somewhere else.
