The hotel is located in no better spot in town, close to bars, restaurants, it is on the 5th Av. in Playa. The rooms are clean, AC works perfectly, at the reception they are very friendly. You really get what you pay.

There is a very beautiful kitchen on the roof, with view to 5 av. Not expensive comparing to what you get (40 dollar for a... More

The hotel was nice, basic and clean. If you are looking for a fancy place, this isn't it. It's not bad, it's just a place to lay your head and if you choose to save more money make your own meal up on the rooftop terrace that over looks 5th ave. The room we stayed in was small, but then... More

A wonderful little hotel on 5th avenue! The rooms are clean, nothing fancy, pillows may not be up to par, and they only give you 2 towels but live with it, walk over to Walmart and buy extra towels if you want! I loved the fridges in every room and the kitchen terrace on the 3rd floor was nice for... More

“No elevators and stairs only for all 3 floors. Not good for people that will have any trouble carrying heavy bags up 3 flights of stairs. Choose room not facing the street if worried about noise.”

“We always stay on the main floor - the rooms are a good size for 2 people - no staris to climb and the noise level from 5th ave is minimal. The night time bar noise ends at 10pm.”
