I stayed her a few nights when on a volcano climbing trip to the Mexico City area. The location is excellent, the rooms spacious and comfortable. What really stood out for me was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The atmosphere is very relaxed and welcoming. The water heat and pressure wasn't the greatest, and the TV selection was...

Whole sale silver sellers around the corner and only a few steps away from main plaza with the presidential palace and cathederal. Santander ATM across the street and friendly shoeshine guy on the corner. The mexican breakfest in the hotel restaurant is to...

This boutique hotel is one of the cleanest, friendliest, and conveniently located places in the Central Historic part of Mexico City. Just three blocks from the main square or Zocalo, there are abundant restaurants, shopping of all sorts, and activities galore. Prices at this location are very economical for the nice amenities received. In a city of 23 million, location...

First, the hotel itself. The big plus' for this hotel is location and price. It's two blocks from the Zocola, Cathedral, Templo Mayor, and National Palace, three blocks from Bellas Artes, and one block from Madero Street, the pedestian street and shopping. The negative is, there was no air conditioning, which wasn't really a big deal, just a little warm...

Very friendly staff, we stayed there twice and they kept the suite with balcony free for us on the second occasion too. Also the restaurant is to be recommended. Good Wi-Fi, and hard to find a better location within easy reach of metro. Very strategic for visiting the Templo Mayor, Zocalo and eating at the Café de Tacuba, Cardenal or...

My sister insisted we stay here and I can see why. They greeted me by name each time. How often does that happen? Clean, free full buffet breakfast, nice amenities, nice balcony, comfortable beds. They were there to answer my endless questions. The rooms had a nice traditional, Mexican decoration. Statues, carved wood, rod iron balcony, marble bathroom floors. Not...

My newly-wed wife and I stayed here for five nights in March 2014. We had a room on the 6the floor, overlooking Isabel de Católica. The staff was not incredibly fluent in English, nor us in Spanish, but they were helpful and check in went smoothly. Initially, we had no power in the room. We were getting ready to call...

We stayed here for 2 nights. The rooms were tired but clean. We got to see several since we asked for a room change. The problem was that every room they tried to move us to was already occupied. After visiting about 5 rooms they finally put us in one that didn't already have guests in it. It was spacious...
