From the moment we walked in until we checked out we were very pleased. The hotel has a very modern look to it with oversize seating in the lobby. The room had 2 queen size beds, a nice view and everything was clean and comfortable. An incredible shower. We enjoyed a few hours on the terrace with only not having...

I stayed at this hotel with my mom for 2 night on January 26 and 27. The room quality reminded me of a comfort inn or quality inn in the states but the fixtures in the room were more modern. We felt completely safe here with no issues. We even walked about 2 blocks to an Oxxo store and felt...

Surrounded by great restaurants, shops and the famous CECUT planetarium, this cozy-chic hotel in the Zona del Rio is a great value. Rates are <$100 and you have all the amenities needed. Free WiFi, hotel bar and it’s restaurant, La Miel, is wonderful.

I loved this place. The staff was great, the buffet breakfast set us up for the day and the rooms were lovely. Parking was safe and the area around the hotel is great. No complaints whatsoever. I don't think you can find a better place in Tijuana.
