    The housekeepers were friendly and did special things to make us feel welcome. They cleaned the room and the finishing touch....clean towels in the shape of two swans joined in the middle with a heart, birds in a nest, snakes. One of the girls brought us two different types of tamales so we could try the food they brought for their own breakfast some days.

    The continental breakfast is better than nothing, I guess. They offer white bread to make toast, and the limit is two slices, which is more than I would want anyway. They have little yogurt containers-limit one. Coffee is o.k. Low quality orange juice. Someone is watching so you don't take more than the limit allowed.

    Not a luxury place, but with a special care that makes your stay much better than stars.

    Nice place, near to the city centre of Playa, close to the Mamita beach with excellent and helpfull staff. Rooms are clean, services are good..In the nearby sorroundings you can find restaurants and bars to hang out in the evening...It's close to the most popular bars on the 5th ave, but still enough away to have peace and quitness in the night when you want to sleep...

    Hotel Banana is a sweet little hotel, located just next to the pedestrian part of the Quinta Avenida. The staff is very nice and helpful, also the rooms are super clean. The perfect location for someone who wants to be close to the center.

    I was cheap compared to other hotel on the 5th Ave .. if you reserve on Booked.net of course. It is 2 minutes walks from Mamitas beach wich is the nicest beach in the area. Plus the hotel gives you rebate on renting chairs & parasol at Mamita beach club. Banana is located at the corner of 32nd & the 5th Ave .... far enough from touristic street party. We were at room 310, perfect side for quiet sleep!

    Bed a bit hard. We were at room 310 and wifi wasn,t working in the room so we were going at the second or 1st floor to get signal. But when the staff realize that, they told us they will fix it ;-)

    Location and price make this a tremendous value. Staff helpful and prompt to respond. Very clean.

    The bed was very hard. The room ac was centrally turned off before we checked out, making showering and packing for our departure very uncomfortable.

    Very friendly personal, cosy, clean, quite mostly, free WiFi, nice and very inexpensive breakfast, spacious rooms, comfortable beds, furniture, no problems at all. Great location because it´s on the main street and at the same time in its less touristic part, and also very close to the beach. 50 % discount at Mamitas Beach Club.

    On one side of the hotel there is some construction going on and they start at 7.30 AM which makes it quite noisy for those who have rooms on that side of the building.

    Exellent location in the 5th Avenue. The italians owners of Hotel are very gentles.

    Across the street there is a restaurant with live music. If you are not really tired will be difficult to sleep before midnight.

    The hotel is in what locals call "Little Italy"... Lots of Italian restaurants, a French cafe across the street, a little quieter than further south on Avenida 5. It's sort of mellow and upscale. The hotel is rather modest, but clean and efficient; they'll change money for you at a decent rate, and there's an office outside for tours, etc. The cleaning women do a nice job on the rooms, and replace your towels every day if you like. Very relaxing. I like the European-style policy of leaving your keys at the desk, since you don't have to worry about losing them on the beach.

    The beds are a bit hard, but that's better than too soft. I got used to it. Also, the place across the street has a guy playing loud Eric Clapton tunes until 1 A.M., so bring earplugs if you're turning in early. Rooms on the northern side of the hotel may be quieter.

    Hotel location is good although a bit away from the main busy area but then a bit more peacful area. Take 10-12 min to walk frlm ADo bus station. 3 min walk to the beach. Plently of choices of restaurants.

    Room is a bit run down but is alright for the money you paid. Hotel reception speaks good english but would be even better if keener to offer advices.

    Very courteous and friendly staff. We arrived six hours before checkin time and they provided us with a small room to stay and freshen up till our rooms were ready. The rooms were cleaned daily, security was available at night. The breakfast provided at the hotel was healthy and service was excellent. The location at the north end of 5th avenue provided for excellent walking to the downtown area so as to enjoy the many amenties of the pedestrian road..

    Directly on Quinta Avenidad, walking distance from the beach (Mamita Playa) and to different restaurants. Proximity of shops to get food, coffee (Ah Cacao). Friendliness and helpfulness of staff. Room 206 was perfect for us: no balcony or outside window giving on the noisy street, but chairs outside the door with view on garden-style interior of hotel.

    According to reservation fact sheet, parking was included, yet unavailable as we had to park on the street. Fortunately, we found a parking spot a few meters from the hotel door and did not budge from there during our 3-night stay. Loud music late at night due to electronic music festival down the street.

    Good location, staff friendly and helpful, all clean and tidy each day, everything worked i.e. shower and tv.

    very minor point but the the room we had didnt support wifi whereas other rooms and spaces in the hotel did
