The hotel

An all-suite, modern and classic property in the heart of Orlando, Buena Vista Suites is the perfect spot for a fun-filled few days or weeks at the theme parks. There's some great perks at this hotel that will allow you to save a few pennies to use on souvenirs - complimentary full American breakfast will give you much needed fuel in the morning before a day at the theme parks, which are a short complimentary shuttle ride away, so you can be walking through those park gates in minutes! And when you’re ready for some down time, you’ve got an outdoor pool as well as access to the facilities and dining at next door Caribe Royal Orlando!

Best was it has a pizza 🍕 place next to loby that was open late. We returned from Disney too tired to go anywhere for supper so we ordered pizza and grabbed a few beers and took it to our room to enjoy. I highly recommend this facility. Read less

Liked the location - good for access to major roads and theme parks - and the public areas in the hotel were very smart. The room was spotless but the suite design makes the sitting room windowless. We hardly used that part of the suite. The suite was on the cold side but the aircon did not seem to have a working heat mode. Good guest… Read more
Liked the location - good for access to major roads and theme parks - and the public areas in the hotel were very smart. The room was spotless but the suite design makes the sitting room windowless. We hardly used that part of the suite. The suite was on the cold side but the aircon did not seem to have a working heat mode. Good guest self-service laundry. Good in-house Pizza place - boxed to take to your room. Good fridge and microwave but we took our own kettle as coffee makers don't do good water for tea. Shops across the road had all you might need in basics. Breakfast was reliable and there was plenty of choice. At times it was very busy but they did open an overflow room. Everything was disposable which was a shame. They had staff clearing plates and restocking food all the time which was good. Read less

Hotel was ok. The rooms were very dark and very cold, despite trying to turn up the temperature on the air conditioning. Breakfast was barely passable, and I’ve never experienced paper plates and plastic cutlery in a hotel before.

Hotel was ok. The rooms were very dark and very cold, despite trying to turn up the temperature on the air conditioning. Breakfast was barely passable, and I’ve never experienced paper plates and plastic cutlery in a hotel before. Location was good for the Disney parks and whilst the free shuttle bus was useful, the timing of the return bus never quite worked out - the bus home from Magic Kingdom was 9.25pm which we missed when watching the fireworks as they finished around 9pm and it took over 30 mins to exit the park. We then had to wait until 10.25. Same experience with Epcot timings. The bus driver was brilliant though and very informative. The hotel is on a main, busy road and our room was facing the road, which I found quite noisy throughout the night but I am a light sleeper. Reception staff were very friendly. Overall would recommend if you’re looking for a cheap budget hotel Read less
