“Great value and very nice staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

Stayed for one night coming back from Holbox. Room was functional - everything worked. And it was clean. Staff was very friendly, helpful and put up with my spanish. Mattress was average.
We were there Sunday so most of the restaurants were closed on restaurant row - ave Yaxchilan. However, La Parrilla had a buffet. It was comforting see a whole bunch of locals.

The place is a modest, safe and quiet property. They serve no breakfast. However, there's a very nice diner-type place within 2 minutes walking distance.

Would stay there again.

When you're two or more persons, travelling Yucatan on a budget, and need a hotel after flying into (or before flying out of) Cancún, Los Girasoles is a great option. It's 400 pesos for a clean, spacious double room with fan, airconditioning, a good bed and a warm shower. The Calle Pina is a quiet street in downtown Cancún, almost no traffic. It's a ten minute walk from the ADO bus station.

My boyfriend and I chose a Cancun city hotel since we arrived late the first night and planned to visit Isla Mujeres the next day before journeying on in the Riviera Maya. The hotel was basic, but very clean and safe. Lots of great local restaurants and bars in walking distance, and easy to catch a taxi nearby. For $30 USD a night, this place far exceeded my expectations. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Must email for a reservation.

Ideal for us as a last night before flying out of Cancun. Very clean and well appointed rooms, friendly and helpful staff and very good value. Located in a quiet backstreet, but only a few minutes walk from restaurants, bars, shopping etc. Will definitely return.

It is walking distance from the bus station, especially when you walk through the big park. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable, TV, air conditioning and internet. For the 400p a night for two people, it was a good deal. Our room did have a slight musty smell, but we just opened the windows, turned the fan on and it was fine. It is on a very quiet little street for being right downtown. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: second floor room, so that you can open windows.

My husband and I have stayed several times (5 - 6) at Los Girasoles for up to a month at a time. This is a small family run hotel (15 - 18 rooms) which is very personable yet provides privacy to guests at the same time. The rooms are spacious, well-appointed, clean, secure and pretty. The location is set back one block from prime entertainment areas in downtown Cancun, allowing for quiet nights "at home". Some of the rooms have kitchenettes which staff will furnish with the basics upon request. If you have any special reqests, if within their means staff will provide it. Los Girasoles is an excellent alternative to staying in the Hotel Zone. It's central location is walking distance to all categories of restaurants, shops, a large Mexican department/grocery store, an active Mexican plaza-park ("Parque de las Palapas"), the famous "Mercado 28" outdoor market and, last but not least, an easy walk to catch a bus to the beach. Finally, a double is very economical at under $40 USD per night. When at Los Girasoles I particularly enjoy getting to stay in and savor the flavor of Mexico while still enjoying the amazing beaches of Cancun. If the above sounds like what you're looking for, I highly recommend you try it. S., Massachusetts
