Hotel in Old Puerto Vallarta charms with tropical rooms
Emperador Hotel & Suites enjoys a base in the heart of Old Puerto Vallarta just a few minutes away from downtown and the airport. And with Playa Los Muertos directly outside one of its towers, the hotel offers instant appeal for travelers who want to stroll to El Malecon. Inside, rooms, suites and some spaces have kitchenettes. A coastal contemporary restaurant send visitors into paradise.
Highlights
  • A tower offering a choice of room layouts
  • Si Senor Restaurant and Beach Club for Vallartense fare
  • Some rooms with kitchenettes and beach views
  • Free Wi-Fi
Rooms
For a modestly sized hotel, Emperador Hotel & Suites presents ample choices. The property caters to short-term or extended-stay visitors with clean, Mexican-inspired spaces stocked with various necessities. Standard hotel rooms, which come with a shower, TV, telephone and one king bed or two twin beds, accommodate two people. Larger groups find comfort in suites and junior suites. The larger spaces enable guests to save on dining expenses by cooking in the kitchenettes. Mexican Colonial-style dining tables and views of the Romantic Zone add to the coastal bliss.
Features
Emperador Hotel & Suites guests revel in the ocean setting -- especially from its lounge chairs. Palm trees, cabana-style patio tables and a brick patio add to the atmosphere. For a change of scenery, patrons can also take advantage of the private beach or palapas (open-sided, thatched-roof huts).
Dining
The romance of Banderas Bay plays out every night at Si Senor Restaurant and Beach Club. The all-day restaurant sets up front-row tables on the sizzling Playa Los Muertos, where the ocean views are as delicious as the frosty Michelada brews.

Good for me.

This hotel is perfect it you want to save a little money, be among the locals, be right on the beach and don't mind not having the amenities. Standard rooms are small so reserve a standard suite you won't be disappointed with the view.

Perfect Beach Location

Great location and value for the budget traveler. The balcony kitchenette was fabulous. The only drawback was having to go to lobby for wifi as it was not available in the rooms.

Something keeps me coming back again and again..

Undoubtedly there are better places, but I really feel comfortable here. It is clean, along Los Muertos Beach and near the new pier. The staff is helpful and it is a good value for the money. I don't like resorts and enjoy the feel of being able to step out on to a narrow cobble stone street and feel like I am in Mexico. Granted, Zona Romantica is a tourist area, but the buildings and streets tell you where it resides, and if you look closely beyond the store fronts along the main streets, you see the toil of people living and trying to earn their living "hidden" in plain sight.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The Malecon make for an interesting distraction, particularly in the evenings. It also make for a good morning walk or run for those trying to burn off their excesses from the night before or just trying to maintain their pre-trip shape. The early morning is the best time to run or walk, before it warms and the walkways start to fill with those strolling. There's always a mix of tourist and locals, both strolling (and running). Include a walk or trot along the River Cuale to include the stairway at the end near the Cultural Center.

a perfect location

Hotel with a fantastic view on the beach and the bay. Room large, simple, good bed, white decoration simple,even elegant(furniture in wood) and not pretentious. Large balcony. An extra kitchen on the balcony that will be perfect for a family. I was by myself but 4 people could stay in a so large room with a table on the balcony. It was exactly what I wanted, a good location and a beautiful view. The bathroom was a little small with a large shower, but it's better to have a very large room and a small bathroom than the opposite... Some little aunts in the bathroom but it's not dramatic. Staff helpful. Do not expect a 4 * hotel room , it's not, but expect a 100* fantastic view and location. Price reasonable. Great for people(gay people or also family) who want to enjoy the zone romantic and the beach.

Sleeping at the Emperador

Upon arrival for check-in I was given a room that had only one bed over looking the beach. I had booked a room that had two beds. The front desk explained the hotel was booked to capacity. I wondered why I had reservations. I complained about the rate difference. Two days later I was changed to the room with two beds. Refund will have to be dealt throug the travel agency. This is a good hotel on the beach within walking distance to the many local bus stops. The encroaching new wave of money, art, and memorable restaurants will probably make the hotel expensive.
