Hotel Monte Taxco: Avoid like the plague

Hotel Monte Taxco

This used to be a very fancy hotel in the 70s, but as it is in any place in which there is no reinvestment done, it has now sunk deep into abandonment. Rooms are small, furniture is old, bathrooms are outdated and broken, rusty windows will not open properly. I have stayed at cleaner and better equipped hostels while backpacking.

The facilities are no good, but the worst part of this hotel is that during the night time, it serves as a social center. Not only will they play loud music but they will also play it until the wee hours in the morning (4 o'clock at least). The ultimate insult comes to the unsuspecting guests in the fact that there are signs all over the hotel asking the guests to keep quiet, and to cherish silence. Sarcasm at its best.

After reading the above review, you must think that prices must be quite competitive, right? 150 dollars per night. I'd like to say that the view you get of Taxco might compensate for the price, but frankly there is no way I would go back there even if they gave me a free stay.

Hotel Aqua Escondida: Decent Hotel

We stayed in the "econmy" rooms which had 3 single beds and a bathroom. A very clean, safe and efficient hotel. There's a pool, restaurant, free interent, pool tables, etc. right in the heart of the zocalo

The beds were horrible because the mattress where springy and soft/
