The hotel is what it is, but it's a great location

Posted Feb 25, 2014
Pros: The staff was friendly enough. The location was great. It was reasonable.
Cons: Please give us: washcloths. a blow drier. a phone.
Location: Definitely check out the Italian restaurant downstairs. The location was perfect and a short walk to the beach.
Don't have high expectations of this place. It has it's charm, but it is very bare bones. I mean, bring your own wash cloths - bare bones. The rooms are teeny tiny. MAKE SURE that if you book here, you specify that you DO NOT want to be in the first floor room that is directly behind the check in desk and has no windows and interrogation room lighting. There is a great little Italian restaurant right down stairs that was actually pretty yummy. They put us in that weird little room but we complained and they gave us a much better room (#13, actually) upstairs that had a window and was way more cheerful. All in all, if you just want a decent place to lay your head while you're not soaking up rays at the beach or walking around town, this place is just fine. 5 minute walk to the beach, clean and inexpensive. Another tip, if you've never been to Playa - all the best restaurants are OFF of 5th (the main strip). All food on 5th has a nice presentation, is not cheap and is terribly devoid of flavor.

Good location

Posted Nov 26, 2013
Pros: The location, and staff were nice.
Cons: Most everything.
Location: The beach, and 5th ave.
The hotel was very run down. There were no chairs in room, only 1 sheets on bed, one on the bottom and one on the top, and no blankets. The internet did not work in the rooms, and did not work anywhere for the last 3 days of my stay. The only electrical plug in could not be used because half of it was covered by the headboard. I had to climb up on stand and plug my phone into a plug that was at roof level for the TV. There was nothing in room, such as safe, fridge, no closet. It was not as it looked on internet pictures.

Excellent Value and Great Location

This hotel is just what I was looking for and expected. A very clean and well maintained boutique hotel with a very friendly staff from the receptionist to the cleaning lady all the way to the hotel manager. My room had a California King size bad that was so comfy I was sad to leave. It is located in the best part of Playa del Carmen nowadays called "little Italy" , right off the famous Quinta Avenida ( 5th Ave) less than 5 min walk to the beach entrance at 1st Ave and 28th St ( Mamita's beach on one side and Kool Beach Club in the other) I will certainly return and will recommend this place to anyone looking for affordable quality accomodations.
