I read the previous review, I couldn’t disagree more. Yes, it’s an older hotel, yes, it’s on a busy street, however, it’s just across the street from the Malecon, a perfect location. I believe it opened in 1956, the staff is constantly cleaning, our maid...More

Very very noisy and street smelly hotel. Hotel reception unhelpful in trying to cancel a reservation. Probably the only bad thing I had in lovely Puerto Vallarta and I warmly recommend to avoid this place.More

If you don’t mind an older hotel, simple and charming, you will love the location just a block from the Malecon and ocean. Good, cheap restaurant and happy hour cocktails. Simple rooms with pretty comfortable beds. Rooms above Reception enjoy an outdoor sitting area.
