Location perfect for historic and cultural attractions, shopping and restaurants, rooftop restaurant excellent views and food, staff exceptionally helpful, small rooms but perfectly adequate, clean and well serviced. Free fruit and bottled water was good. Overall good value for price. Many thanks to staff: Erick, Diderot, David, Eduardo, Hari and Tania - thanks for a wonderful stay.

I have just spent 5 nights here. My first time in Mexico city and travelling alone (female). The staff here were fantastic, couldn't do enough for me. The location was perfect, so central with lots to do within walking distance. And the hotel itself is lovely, nice rooms and hreat restaurant. I would highly recommend it.

The room we booked was probably the smallest in the place and had no view, but we weren't there for that so it was okay. The water isn't drinkable for foreigners but that is the same everywhere in Mexico; the hotel stocks water on every floor in a mini-fridge and re-stocks the rooms daily with two large bottles. Clean, quiet....

An outstanding location for a short visit to Mexico City. Lots of great sights all within short walk. Great restaurants all around the area and the rooftop terrace at Hotel Zocalo is a great view of the Zocalo Square. The staff were extremely helpful, courteous, and hard working. Would definitely return to this place again.
