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.

Attractions

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

Would recommend Sun, Mar 30, 2014
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.

I have been staying at this hotel for the last 3 times that I have been down to PV and I just love this hotel. The maids are great to get along with and also the desk clerk. A great feeling that the staff remember me from the prior years. I have recommendated this hotel to all my friends.

Dining

Sleeping at the Emperador

Would recommend Mon, Jan 20, 2014
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.

Fourth Stay a at Emperador

Would recommend Wed, Jan 8, 2014
The location is A+ to get a real taste of PV. It's on the beach and walking distance to many local treats. The hotel is clean and comfortable. It's all very basic, but the price is excellent for a nice stay. The staff is very accommodating. I'll go back in February,

Dining

You are there because you can afford a vacation. Be generous to locals who work so hard for what they have and it will not dent your Starbucks budget!

Great location, rooms were comfortable and clean .could use a little more color in the rooms. The walls are all white with no pictures Would definitely book again. It's no Sheraton, but if your on a budget it's great!

Great Location...Terrible Rooms

Would not recommend Mon, Mar 11, 2013
The first two nights I was in room 403. The room had a strong smell of mold. I had to keep the drain stopper in the bathroom sink or else the smell of sewer gases would fill the room. The air conditioner did not work with the remote. Either it had to be left on full blast or turned off. The furnishings were worn and soiled. The bathroom door was disintegrating at the bottom (looked like water damage). The second room I was given was better, but still not very good. The windows do not muffle the sounds of street noises. (I thought I left the window open one night because the street sounds were loud and clear.) The doors only have a simple push button lock on the knob. There are no safety chains or deadbolts. Each day I would get towels that were frayed or had holes in them. There was no comforter on the bed, only a simple sheet. The bed and pillows were extremely hard. After my one week stay I left with a stiff neck. The only good thing about this hotel is that it is very close to the beach and in the romantic zone.

Location!

Would recommend Wed, Feb 20, 2013
Ideal location in old town. Woke to ocean waves and tropical birds. The balconies are fantastic. Wifi was spotty, but just go down the street to Dee's for good coffee and rolls. A bit noisy with garbage trucks in the wee hours, but you're in the heart of it all. Rooms are no frills, and bed was a bit hard, but clean.
