I spent 2 nights at the Hotel del Rio last month and have a very nice impression of the lodging. It's certainly convenient to city centre and the charming river walk. The rooms are clean and large, ours was quite bright and the staff extremely helpful in providing information about local attractions, directions, etc.
There are a few things that weren't...ideal. The wifi is really pretty poor, but that seems to be common throughout central Mexico. The squawking from the birds in the aviaries (and the Great-tailed grackles) is an early-morning problem for those who want to sleep in. There is traffic noise and, as a bus station is just across the river, it can add to the aural distraction. And...the smell of the river when water levels are low can be less than pleasing.
Still, I could think of many worse places I've stayed and the proximity to the many city attractions is a real "plus". The price is reasonable, too. I'd stay here again.More
