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.
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.
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.
Property 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).

Wonderful surprise

In spite of the low number of stars, and my reluctance in the past to give this hotel a try, I had a very good experience at Emperador. The front desk staff was great, the room very nice, and with a great view, and it is in my favorite part of Vallarta. I would only wish there was WiFi in the rooms, and that the cleaning staff was better about cleaning the bathroom.

Gay PV traveler

The hotel was great in location and very clean. The staff was very helpful. We had a very nice dinner in their restaurant, Si Senor. I recommend you take a day trip to Yelapa by water taxi. The best seafood tacos can be found at Cisneros Seafood, a short walk from the hotel. Drinks and food on the beach at Green Chairs shouldn't be missed. This location of this hotel can't be beat for beach and nightlife, straight or gay! Pay the extra pesos and get an ocean view with balcony. Most with a balcony have a full kitchen and fridge.

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.

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.

Fourth Stay a at Emperador

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,

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!

Another stay at Emperador

This was my third stay at the Emperador in three years, and it hasn't changed at all. The rooms are clean and large. I had a standard suite which had a huge king bed, love seat and tables with a kitchenette and table with four chair out on the balcony overlooking the beach. This hotel remains the best value for a hotel right on the beach and in the middle of Old Town. Staff is great, and Ian at the desk is always ready to help with a friendly smile and greeting. I will continue to use this hotel as my home in Vallarta.

budget on beach... location

Good hotel for location in the Romantic Zone, right on the beach near the pier. No frills and good value. Basic rooms are spartan and not comfortable with no view, but cheap. Deluxe suites are large with balcony and kitchenette and ocean view. Junior suites are a little larger. I usually go with the deluxe suite with king bed and kitchenette and dining table on the very large terrace overlooking the beach. Drawback is no pool, but beach is just steps away. Free wifi, but only in the lobby area and two computers to use in the lobby as well. Discount at the restaurant downstairs on the beach, but there are many cheaper options nearby. Just one block up to Olas Atlas and all the restaurants and gay bars. Blue Chairs is four blocks or a walk down the beach.

Deal!!!!

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!
