I mostly agree with all the previous reviewers, except for: - The wireless signal in our room was not good. No navigation possible (I've e-mailed the hotel and they responded immediately saying they'll do something about it). - We didn't get the suggestion to "grab a breakfast of freshly squeezed OJ and queso quesadillas around the corner", but I got...

The concept of Tubohotel - essentially a capsule-hotel with rooms made of concrete tubing - seemed to promise a unique and memorable experience. So, between that and the general lack of budget options in Tepoztlan (one of the more expensive towns to visit in Mexico), I thought I'd give the place a try. Unfortunately, I can't recommend it. For your... More

When we first read this review we thought, "oh my, our first bad review." After taking a closer look, I actually recommend these comments if you use rose colored glasses as it highlights our positives - festive town, clean, comfortable, and economical. We are sorry that you cannot recommend our hotel. This is a unique concept that many love, but... More

Hearing that there was a hotel with rooms inside construction tubes meant I had to find some way to experience this -- what a cool concept! Happily, the concept delivers on what the idea promises; a step up from a hostel, but not quite a hotel, the Tubohotel offers a degree of privacy in the extremely cozy beds (I slept... More

Upon reading other tripadvisor reviews I decided to stay at the Tubohotel this past weekend. I was able to make a reservation online with a quick and friendly response. All rooms are 500 pesos, all year round. The hotel is about a mile from the center of the city, close to the highway off ramp. Their website has detailed instructions... More

Tubohotel is an original option for budget travelers to stay in Tepoztlan. It is clean, convenient and staff is helpful and friendly. Would absolutely recomend as a new experience and as a great option for the budget traveler.

It is a great option for an adventure weekend. My wife and I spent two nights and got the chance to walk around this magical town. The hotel is very clean; basic but comfortable. The concept is very innovative and can be considered one of the most original "hostels" I´ve ever been. Great prices, good location, friendly personnel.
