This hotel was my first stay in Mexico City. It was recommended by my local business partners as a business friendly hotel in a location that some restaurants can be reached by foot. Overall, the rooms were surprisingly large, clean and modern. The breakfast was good with a choice of buffet or a full menu. I found the staff to...

This hotel is well localized on Mexico City, very close to downtown and Coyoacán. You can access restaurants and a mall easily by feet. The staff is well prepared and atentious. The bedrooms are large and well equipped, and alway kept clean.

This Holiday Inn was the first I visited in Mexico, and the best of the three. Recently (3 years) renovated after purchasing from another owner/operator, the rooms are large, the lobby open and inviting, the workout room sparse but clean. Bellman was most helpful and earned his tip- showed me everything I needed to know, including the fact that the...

The hotel is clean and the restaurant is nice. Good breakfast, but pricey for Mexico City. Fitness Center was new and clean. Room had a nice ambiance. I would rather stay in an area with lots of local restaurants and things to do at night. For business it is fine, the people that work here are very nice and friendly.

The Holiday Inn Plaza Universidad is an excellent hotel for business travellers. The rooms offer a spacious desk, fast and reliable Wifi Internet access, ironing equipment etc. The breakfast buffet includes pretty much anything one can think of. Worthwhile mentioning is the great selection of tropical fruit and freshly squeezed juices. The service is top class. The gym only has...

This was our fourth stay in this hotel, which has become our home away from home in Mexico D. F. The location is good, across from a shopping mall, and a block away from a Walmart ( supply of bottled water, and many other needs). It is close to Churches, a Metro station, and very good restaurants. While it is...

Rooms, restaurant and hotel lobby have been renewed recently, so everything looks great. The staff is helpful. For the location, I expected a bit lower prices. At walking distance, you got two metro stations and the possibility to go all around Mexico City.

Modern and clean installations. Good restaurant, but a little expensive for what they offer. The main issue is that there are no minibar in the rooms. People were very respectfull and measured no efforts to give you a nice stay.

The Holiday Inn is an efficient business hotel: the rooms are functional and of good design. The staff are helpful and professional. Standard rooms come with a large desk. Wifi Internet is free of cost and really high speed. What I did not like about the rooms was the bright cold light of most lamps and the fact that the...
