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.

Nice stay, great staff

I had a great say, no complaints. The staff was very helpful and went out of their way to help if asked. The rooms are older, but very clean. I had low expectations after reading all the reviews, but the elevator always worked and there was always hot water. No issues with the maids, nothing. Overall I thought Emperador was better than other hotels in the area. Great location and price, not sure where all the complaints came from. The pool was closed, but the beach is right there. I'm planning to return.

Underwhelming

Great location in the Zona Romantica. The picture gallery on their site got me excited about my stay...especially with the jacuzzis on the rooftops. However, both jacuzzis were empty and didn't work; they looked as if they hadn't been used in quite a while. The standard rooms were run-down. I won't be staying there again during my next trip to PV.

A pleasant stay

The trip was taken as a warm getaway from a cold winter. Pre-trip expectations were to spend some time relaxing or just laying in the sun. The hotel offered that as it is right on the shore of Banderas Bay. Wristbands are issued upon check-in so that guests may use the beach facilities and for discounts at the onsite restaurant, although unaffiliated with the hotel. The hotel pool is a block away, but most things in the area are similarly puzzled together. A great waterfront location within a short walk to several culinary choices or a healthy trek by foot to shopping on the Malecon or hiking the rocky shores to the south. The facility is not plush, it is basic, but it does meet most needs. The Emperador is functional, clean and has a staff that caters to its guests. Deposits are requested for the TV and A/C remotes (some may use the A/C at night to quiet the nearby sound of breaking waves), but are reimbursed upon check-out; easily used for cab fare back to the airport ($12MX).

Dozens of dining choices within a few blocks of the hotel. Feel free to try a variety during your stay, even if one chooses a suite where your own foods may be prepared seaside. Don't be afraid to try older establishments or those off the beaten path.

Hotel Emperador Hotel

Elevator doesn't work. I got stuck in it. Despite complaints it never worked right. Sometimes access to the swimming pool was denied. They would tell me the pool was being cleaned How many hours in a day does it take to clean a small pool? When I would complained everyone acted like they never had this happened before. The elevator was always a risk. The poll was always being cleaned.

Emperador Junior Suite with Ocean View

I had a wonderful stay at the Emperador. I would recommend it to others traveling to PV and wanting to stay in the Zona Romantica. The only problem is that they do not allow pets.
