We were made to feel welcome. The room was exactly as described. Very close to the main bus station.
Oscar was very helpful before we even arrived. He sent us information about how to arrive at his guest house from the airport, and we were able to arrange how to get the key. He even recommended a few places to eat! Inside the guest house is a microwave, mini fridge, dishes + soap along with complimentary bug repellent, shampoo, and soap (all three organic). There's even TV, WiFi, and A/C.
The neighborhood seems relatively safe in terms of a busy city center, although I always traveled with another person. Can be noisy at times, but you could drown out the sound with the fan and air conditioner. Location is really great! If you do not rent a car, there are taxis available and many things are even within walking distance. Parking does not get too expensive (compared to the U.S.); the most we paid was about $10 USD. Otherwise we found free parking or only paid about $2 USD.
I would recommend taking a taxi to Puerto Juarez (~7 min) and take the people ferry to Isla Mujeres. Beautiful island and Playa Norte is da bomb. People like renting golf carts, but it's much cheaper to use taxis on the island. In general, it's less expensive to pay for everything using pesos. Almost everywhere takes USD but it will be more expensive because they round up after conversion.
My only complaint about the Guest House is that there are mosquitoes. Oscar does provide organic repellent, but I would consider purchasing a stronger one if you get the chance. Also, make sure to leave the fan turned on always and close the door to the bathroom. It was a little difficult controlling the temperature in the room, even with the A/C unit, so you'll have to figure that out when you stay there.
Overall, it was great! If I come back to Cancun, I would stay here again.
We were welcomed by Roy. He showed us the room, gave us the keys and told us where to have a good dinner, wich was helpful. The room is very nice and confortable, fully equipped. It was a perfect spot (two blocks away from the ADO bus terminal) for our last evening in Méjico. Thank you!
Host was great with summarizing the immediate area and with recommendations on what would be interesting to see, and a few restaurant recommendations. The surrounding area is easy walkable and provides a nice feeling of the old Cancun city environment. The photo gives a fair representation of the room which was clean and comfortable. Would stay again.
Roy was there when we arrived and was most helpful. Great location, beautiful room, with microwave and small fridge, water heater for coffee and toaster. Very clean and comfortable. Large private bathroom with hot and cold water. Nice cats! Would stay there again and would recommend to friends.
