Cons: There really aren't any immenities. Just basic rooms in a building. The rooms need updating including the furniture. There can be occasional loud street noise during sleep hours from rude drivers blaring music, nearby club music, or trucks honking to get someone's attention. My room had a pillar only 12 inches in front of the toilet making it difficult to sit and stand from the toilet seat. Equally bad was the 13-inch access space to enter the shower. Minimal street parking. The satellite TV reception often faded away or the picture froze. The slightest cloud would completely block the signal. I found one of the electrical outlets didn't work so I couldn't have the lamp and phone charger plugged in at the same time. Maintenance said they knew about it and might fix it someday when pressed. They suggested I use the outlet behind the refrigerator, in the bathroom, or on the patio. The only towels supplied were 2 bath towels. I had to ask for a washcloth which from then on they provided two and a hand towel. Pros: The location is very good. You can walk to dozens of places to eat, shop, supplies, etc. The beach is a few steps away. The maids were friendly but the rest of the staff were not friendly.

Easy to get to and very walkable to downtown Puerto Vallarta. Staff were very helpful and accommodating. Rooms were cleaned regularly, with housekeeping leaving cute towel animals in room. I would stay here again. The only thing I didn't like was the bathroom drain wasn't vented well and left an odor in the room during the day. Otherwise, the bed was comfortable and the shower had strong water pressure.

Love the location and balconies overlooking the ocean. Right next to the pier. WiFi is weak in rooms but strong in the lobby. Lots of English TV channels. Have stayed here before and will return for sure.

The Emperador is an affordable hotel beachfront hotel in the middle of the best part of town. The staff is friendly and good but the hotel isn't new. You get a bargain for the prices they charge. I've stayed there 5 times in the past. You can't expect it to be the same as upscale hotels that charge a lot more. I treat it as a dorm room, a place to sleep, but the point of the time there is all the stuff near the hotel at your fingertips.
