Really noisy. They first give us a room just next to the central air conditioning generator. It was TERRIBLE. They give us another room, but we didn't sleep well as most of their rooms are located on the street side and they was another generator, this tme on the street. so its pretty noisy (cars, people, etc..) all night long....

We stayed the month of January at Hotel Rio and had a marvelous stay. The staff are friendly and helpful and make you feel welcome and like family. This was our second year here. We will be back each year and hope to see same staff year after year.

Good value boutique hotel in a great location. Clean and comfortable and the staff were very helpful. It's on a fairly busy street but not overly noisy - and a short stroll to the malecon. Will happily recommend to friends.

This hotel is located 1 block from the Malecon, the boardwalk that goes from one end of town to the other, and it's at the halfway point between downtown and the romantic zone, so the location is ideal for exploring the entire area. We had a room with a kitchenette, and there was a wraparound balcony which was great for...

We wanted a centrally located hotel for walking to shopping and food. It is truly right in the heart of the malecon, downtown shopping, great restaurants and just a few minutes walk to old town/romantic zone. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Nothing super fancy, but on the middle-high end for an in-town boutique hotel. Some rooms do face the busy...

Alongside it's great location, it is a quaint space that's full of warm vibes. With a patio for some fresh air, a restaurant to enjoy food and drinks while some soft salsa sets the mood.

Great location...friendly staff... coexist restaurant good food & great staff. The place is well maintained and clean. I have already booked anither trip for this May.
