Art Deco Suites Cancun offers the ardent Traveler affordable short to long term apartments in the vibrant heart of Downtown Cancun. This unique establishment has recently been extensively remodeled in Art Deco Style to provide modern, fully equipped, stylistic studio apartments. We have made every effort to provide you with all the modern comforts within a pleasing aesthetic environment. We welcome you to experience all we have to offer in our carefully created ambiance of curves, lines and harmonious pastels palette.

Art Deco Suites Cancun is very centrally located in the Historic Downtown area of Cancun, and offer secure fully-gated lodging with parking space if required. We are comprised of a main building with seven unique studio apartments, and in the rear of the property are an additional eight studios, and a beautifully landscaped private courtyard. Each internet enabled studio apartment is available for short or long term. The courtyard enjoys secluded sunlight and provides a communal area for guests to relax and socialize, it includes a dining area and a lounging area, with a large BBQ for those who wish to ‘cook-out’. Each suite is tastefully decorated with quality, contemporary furnishing and offers single, twin or queen beds, small kitchenette including mini-fridge, microwave and coffee machine. The main building houses a fully equipped communal kitchen and laundry room, and all linens and towels are provided. Check out our Rooms and Facilities for more information. Step out of the front gate and you enter the bustling world of Downtown Cancun. Take a short stroll to the shade of the local park at the end of the street, sit on a bench and relax and observe a little of local life. You can hear the salsa music on a Sunday evening as locals gather to dance together as the sun goes down. They even welcome you to join in, and you will find yourself shaking your hips along to the seductive rhythm of Latino sounds! A short walk from the park brings you to a large outdoor theatre area, where more regular entertainment is conducted. From the seating area you can watch children happily at play and local traders tout their wares – everything from corn and tacos to ice-cream and Mayan crafts. You can sample some Mexican food al fresco style or maybe let the local shoeshine man shine your boots for a few pesos.
At the other end of the street you have your local grocery store and pharmacy, and step out onto Avenue Yaxchilan and you have an array of bars, restaurants and craft stores to occupy your curiosity about life in Cancun. Dining out is cheap in downtown Cancun, far cheaper than the prices charged just a few miles away in the Hotel Zone. However, for those wishing to while away lazy days on the beautiful white sands, a short bus ride takes you directly to the ‘Zona Hotelera’ for a bargain $7.50 pesos (60 cents). Staying with us means you have the best of everything and can stay in Cancun without it having to be expensive. Tourists staying in the Hotel Zone usually venture to Downtown to explore the ‘real Cancun’ and benefit from purchasing wares at more realistic prices. Market 28 is a short walk from us and is the center for purchasing your gifts and Mexican trinkets to return home with. Be prepared to be haggled!! Market 23 is the local food and produce market off Avenue Tulum where you can buy all sorts of exotic fruits and local fish and meats amongst the locals.
If you like to have the familiarity of home you will find that this is all here in Cancun too. Many large corporate chains have established themselves here for the travelling American and Canadian, and you can expect to find Burger King, McDonalds, Applebee’s and even Walmart.

Art Deco Suites Cancun caters more to the independent traveler and offer the most competitive monthly rates in Downtown Cancun. Yet we also wish to welcome those who wish to sample the Yucatan and Maya Riviera for a short or passing stay. We can even offer office facilities, full secretarial services, unlimited long distance to the U.S and Canada, high-speed internet and translation services if required, meaning you can combine pleasure and business staying with us. We have extensive knowledge of the surrounding area and its tourist attractions – those well known and those kept quite a local secret!! We are required to have a copy of every guests passport and an emergency contact number for each guest before arrival as well as a virtual signature of our Rental Agreement.

The Neighborhood

Art Deco Suites offers the ardent Traveler affordable short to long term apartments in the vibrant heart of Historic Downtown Cancún, Mexico. We are a locally owned, family run establishment and provide a safe, peaceful, and clean environment to travelers from all over the world. Most of the time about half of our guests are women traveling solo since we provide a safe environment for them, and Art Deco Suites is the best option for Place Independent Digital Nomads since we offer ultra high speed Internet and long distance calling to the U.S. and Canada- all totally free. Is the Internet important to you? It’s generally spotty in Mexico. In almost all of the hotels and homes, the Internet is provided via a company called Telmex, which uses old DSL modem technology from the 90′s. Many of our guests are Internet Professionals and can’t survive without PERFECT Internet. That’s why we pay much more for the fastest Cable and Fiber Optic Modems through 2 totally separate ISP’s, to guarantee a Rock Solid connection. Our unique establishment has recently been extensively remodeled in Art Deco Style to provide modern, fully equipped, stylistic studio apartments. We have made every effort to provide you with all the modern comforts within a pleasing aesthetic environment. Art Deco Suites welcomes you to experience all we have to offer in our carefully created ambiance of curves, lines and harmonious pastels palette.

  • Seth was a good host and he responded in acceptable timing each time we tried contacting him. The rooms were nice and as pictured here on airbnb. We booked the Airy & Clean but Seth offered us the room with a bathroom since my wife and I both were staying there which was very nice of him. We had to leave early which was understood on my part that we would lose out on the money we had paid. Seth was understandable about our situation and we left without losing any deposit.

  • The area where Art Deco Suites is safe as long as you dont go wandering around sketchy neighborhoods by yourself at 4am but I think that pretty much goes for everywhere. I travelled alone and I thought it was fine. You will definitely meet the neighbors, probably in the kitchen since many of them cook their meals there. When I stayed it was mostly working travellers staying for an extended amount of time so some of the friendlier people will be more than happy to answer any questions for you about where to shop/eat/bank/laundry etc. I got along well with the neighbors and we would chat and hang out pretty regularly during my 3 week stay. I miss them! The standard room was totally big enough, although there's no closet and I brought a ridiculous amount of clothes and shoes (it only has a small 3 drawer dresser (email hidden) above it) so I can imagine that two people sharing the room would have to pack lighter than I did. Management was also helpful and seems to genuinely care about customer experience. Fyi the bathroom is lovely but there's no door!

    You are very kind to take the effort in writing such a comprehensive review, thank you! We have a great many solo female travelers like yourself stay here and I know you found yourself in good company with our other international guests. As you note, the standard suite, which you were in, has a minimal closet with 5 drawers and a hanging rack, so don't bring a massive amount of clothes :-), but when you finish unpacking, you are able to stow all of your empty luggage beneath our custom made, extra tall bed. The bathroom lacks a physical door, instead has a fabric curtain (see pics on this listing) because I felt a door would have made the room feel significantly smaller; and since most guests are solo, the privacy part normally is not an issue. I hope you come back next year and stay a little longer this time !!

  • Les photos de l'appartement sont trompeuses mais en bien : la chambre est bien plus grande que ce que l'on voit : il y a deux grands lits et assez d'espace.
    L'appartement est bien situé, sur une grande avenue avec le passage de nombreux bus et taxis. La station de bus ADO est à 15/20 minutes à pied mais c'est surtout grâce aux transports en commun que tout peut se faire.
    Seule notre arrivée aura été ardue, n'hésitez pas à demander plus de détails à l'hôte pour vous y rendre.

  • Nice place, good location in the centro and very friendly staff! Very easy to get to the touristic zone by bus, and located close to the ADO bus station where you can get on a bus or catch a van to go down to Playa del Carmen etc.

  • Art Deco Suites was exactly as listed. The room and complex could not have been cleaner! The host was patiently waiting for my late flight and gave assistance to the area upon arrival. The area has supermarkets, banks, restaurants and the ADO all within a few minutes. The apartment is less than a 5 minute jog to the start of the Hotel Zone pathway, perfect for runners. I felt safe and completely relaxed while at the apartment and would love to stay again.

  • La estancia fue buena, la habitacion era agradable como mostraban las fotos, y el anfitrion nos recibio bien. La zona, por lo que nos pudimos informar en la ciudad es peligrosa por la noche, si volviera buscaria hospedarme en otra ubicacion.
    No nos gusto, que nos cobraron un costo de luz excesivo, en relacion a lo que nos informaron que en realidad cuesta. Ademas, le pedimos al anfitrion un comprobante o factura del gasto parcial de luz, para que pudieramos verificar que eso era lo que habiamos gastado, y no nos lo quiso dar, ademas de que nos respondio de una forma bastante desagradable e irrespetuosa.

    Como bien es el caso en muchas ciudades, son mas peligrosas a las 4 o 5 de la madrugada que era la hora en que usted solia llegar; con todo y eso no me reporto ningún incidente que merezca la atribución de que es una zona peligrosa. El cobro de la energía eléctrica es aparte de la renta, y esto se dice en letras mayúsculas en nuestro anuncio. El costo de la energía también se especifica en el anuncio, y por la estancia de 45 dias, el consumo, en el caso de usted, fue de .85 centavos de dolar americano por dia. Cada departamento tiene un medidor independiente. La compañia de luz emite sus facturas cada 2 meses y esto casi nunca corresponde al ir y venir de los inquilinos, es por eso que la lectura se toma el dia de llegada, y cada dia que cae la renta o la salida en su caso. En años de rentar departamentos, esta fue la primera ocasion en la que se hizo tanto alarde por el pago del consumo de energia.

  • Art Deco Suites was a conveniently located place to stay. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. If you want to be close to all transportation but away from the expensive, touristy hotel zone it is perfect. The neighborhood is safe. There is a bit of a community feel among the other tenants which proved to be a relief since I was travelling alone. The management is responsive and clearly cares about the complex and the people staying with them.

    Thank you for your kind review! The sense of community among or guests is one of the best things about staying at Art Deco Suites. Many of our guests are solo female travelers and having a safe and clean home base when exploring the Cancun and the Yucatan peninsula is important. I hope you visit us again soon :-)

I live here in paradise with my wife and daughter because we enjoy scuba diving, sailing, and just being anywhere near the ocean. Mexico is a wonderful country with so much to explore. A good starting place is definitely Cancun!
