Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights this week. Smaller hotel, clean and perfect value. The hotel staff were all very helpful. I did not get their names however I chatted with them and they told me where to eat how to get around and very helpful. Very close to everything on 5th avenue.

We have stayed here several times in the last many years. The hotel is perfectly situated on 5 ave. Close to marmitas beach club, where you also get 50% discount on sunbeds and umbrella. Cleaning is good and changing linens every day. Charming hotel and a wonderful staff.

Is a simple and warm hotel. People in the Hotel is so friendly and kind. The hotel is so clean. If You are looking a clean, safe and good price hotel, this is the right option. It is not luxury but is the greatest place if You would like to feel the atmosphere in the heart of Playa del Carmen
