In downtown Cancun, close to the bus station, but a bit of a drive to the heart of the action in the Hotel Zone
The Radisson is located on a wide street in eastern Ciudad Cancun, a bit of a drive from the Hotel Zone and its gorgeous beaches. There are no popular tourist destinations within walking distance, but the main bus station is nearby, which is very convenient for those visitors who want to explore the attractions outside the downtown area.
Ciudad Cancun is the original downtown area, where locals actually live and have their businesses. Restaurants here are inexpensive, stores more authentic, and the flavor is more local than in bustling, party-oriented Hotel Zone. For those more interested in lounging at the beach than discovering the real Mexican culture, cabs are easy to find.
This 247-room, no-frills, mid-range hotel is located in downtown Cancun. Rooms are clean and spacious, with flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi, but feel generic and basic. The hotel features a nice pool, a tiny fitness room, a staffed business center, and a decent restaurant, plus a free shuttle to the beach. In short, it’s a good budget pick for a short stay, but it lacks the charm of other properties in the area.
