The hotel was in general clean and the personnel friendly - as long as you speak Spanish. My room came with 2 beds, even though I paid for only one. The service was good for room service. It is considered well-regarded if you leave some tips ($20-40) in your room for the cleaning ladies after more than 1 night. Only...

The Hotel Balaju overall installations are pretty good considering the price you are paying. I don't think you will get better quality for the same price anywhere else. I mean it isn't a grand resort but for $45 usd a night you get a clean room with air conditioning, breakfast buffet included, wifi (a very slow one), pool, valet parking...

The location is good, right on the coast and very close to the aquarium which definitely worths a visit. The room is basic, but clean and comfortable enough. We stayed here for 5 nights just because we needed a break from the long-term road trip. There are restaurants around in walking distance. But since the safety was still an issue...

The hotel is very good for the price, clean, comfortable, the breakfast is included and is good. I stayed here because I went to scuba diving which is at 2 blocks. The only problem is the vallet parking, is very very slow, 20 mintues waiting for the car.

The hotel was great. Very friendly staff. We got in late and asked for a room overlooking the ocean and got it. The ac is super cold and quiet. There was good water pressure and water temperature. Wifi was fast. Their american breakfast buffet didn't really have anything American on it but was still delicious and had great variety.

The room was very clean, with a big bed and very comfortable. The hotel is in the main street so the taxis and transport is good, but maybe you don't even use it, the aquarium and the beach is very near (5 min. walking). With breakfast. In my room the safe locker didn't work and when I asked for someone...

I red all others reviews and i'm still wondering if i was not expecting too much.... It's not near a real four or five strars Hotel. I don't know what you will pay for it. Let's say it's a good 3 stars. Not more. There is one thing that really suprised me: there is no information booklet in the room....

We were relieved when we were able to switch to this lovely hotel after check out of one of the dive hotels on the beach. The beds where comfortable, the buffet wonderful, and the staff very helpful. Wish we had started and stayed here during our visit. Would definately stay here again if we return to Veracruz.
