This is not a hotel, it is a place they rent for parties and it has room. So every night of our stay there was a party with loud music until midnight and noise until 2 am. Rooms are very nice but unless you rent the all place for your party forget it you will live a nightmare! We left... More

I stayed in Mexico City the week of thanksgiving. I really enjoy staying in the historical center. This hotel has a good location, it is located across the Alameda. By crossing the street and walking a few seconds, you pass by Bellas Artes and will find yourself on the busy Madero street. Just about every day we would be walking... More

Stayed here on our first trip, expected a 5 star rating as led to believe by another review system and sadly disappointed. There was grime and hair on the leather headboard which was hidden by pillows. Yuck. The shower did not have the wooden grates put down to shower my husband had to put them in place. The coffee pot... More

We arrived about 9pm and the taxi driver told us the hotel backs onto a very unsalubrious area! Of course we were very apprehensive and wished we hadn't chosen it. However it was lovely, very friendly staff, spacious rooms and a very pretty courtyard where they served an excellent breakfast. Massive rooftop terrace with a bar and great city views...... More

I'm sure it was nice 15 years ago. It had a lot of high end things done to it a long time ago. Unfortunately no one has done maintenance on it for at least 10 years. First trip to Mexico and I thought everyone lived with pealing paint, black mildew all over the walls, buckling wood floors, overpriced drinking water,... More

I arrived at the hotel at 8:00pm to find extremely loud disco music coming from the roof onto the open courtyard, where all the rooms face. I asked reception and it turns that the hotel rents the roof bar as a disco. They said the group has rented it until 2:00am but that the music will become quieter by 11:00pm.... More

This hacienda style hotel is conveniently located within walking distance to several hotels and a hoard of great restaurants. There is a fair amount of noise since it is located right in the middle of a busy area of D.F., but the noise is not overbearing, we slept wonderfully in a bed which was quite comfortable on the second floor...

If you need a centrally located hotel in the mid-range, this is a very good option. We spend two nights and had good service, a nice uptodate bedroom and on walking distance from the zocalo, Palacio de Bellas Artes, etc. We did not eat at the hotel as the Hilton hotel nearby is famous for it's breakfast (restaurant El Cardenal)....

First time, I visited 'The Cortes' in 1972, - it was a luxurious top address with perfect services. What a change, when we visited 'Boutique Hotel Cortes' again. The bellman did not dare to pick-up the luggage, because it was raining. The rooms, are very nicely remodeled in the first decade of this century, with specially designed furnitures. BUT: 1.)...

Though I have a personal and emotional attachment to this place (my grandfather rebuilt it about 20 years ago) it is absolutely Awful now. The inside is still nice and colonial style, the manager doesn't care at all and his customers are not significant , I mentioned that the valet prices were different from what to the valet charged me...

Staying in Alameda

Neighborhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
