Once again, staying at Casa Freud --I can't even count how many times I've been here and have stayed in most of the rooms. :) It was nice to be back and to see they have been renovating some more. Now they even have a nice pool in the garden area. The location is perfect, in the middle of everything.... More

Thank you for your nice review, we hope to see you again soon. The party is still going, but the BPM ends tomorrow (18th of January)and Playa del Carmen will settle down again.

We got suite #6 which has its own entrance on 5th avenue and a terrace with a great view over the avenue. It is perfect if you plan on partying every night or if you like to listen to classic rock music from the bar next door until 2am which we didn't mind at all. I'm not fond of the... More

We had the penthouse for the whole family, which was convenient. The place was not very clean, there were a lot of bugs, specially in the bathroom. The top room didn't have enough a/c, the shower just trickled water, the safe (which you have to pay for) worked only some times. Yes, it's noisy but we knew that from other... More

I contacted and booked with Casa Freud directly and it was very simple. The owner is very responsive and helps find the right room for you. I wanted to be in the middle of all the action and I took Suite #5 which is up on second floor with a terrace overlooking 5th Ave. Great spacious room, queen (maybe king?)... More

I just returned from staying at Posada Freud for 7 days. For starters, I did read the reviews on the site before I still decided to go ahead and book my hotel.

“If you like to be on second floor with good view of the famous 5th Ave, select Suite #5 or 6 . The hotel next door does play live music until about midnight-1AM, if you like to be up late, this place is great for you. If you need to be in bed early and have it quiet, then maybe this isn't the place for you. But I will say, the music is good ! One of the best places to hear live music, so you will always be entertained in your room!”
