I recently stayed here with friends, and I was as pleased with it this time as I have been on several other occasions. Staff was helpful, the location is excellent (and serviced by a rank of several tourist taxis, with good vehicles and pleasant, confident drivers), and the restaurant is adequate and convenient.

I stayed here twice in 2013, for a total of 20 nights. Maria Cristina has an elegant reception and foyer, and a grassy courtyard for relaxing. The staff is helpful, and there normally is an English-speaker on duty (if that is needed). The attached restaurant is quite good, inexpensive, and staffed with good people. The neighborhood is very good--one block... More

The hotel is a cut above where I would normally stay but proved worthwhile in a city that can be quixotic and exhausting. While the zocalo seemed safe by day, being near the new part of the city felt safer and, while many of the other skyscaper hotels in the vicinity are of the charmless, anaemic type, at least Maria...

Maria Cristina has seen better days - the rooms are pretty tired, though clean, and could use simple amenities like a clock and coffee maker. Of greater concern is the front desk staff - not particularly friendly or helpful with basic questions about things like bus schedules, directions, etc. The garden is lovely and the bar is a nice place...

I have stayed here many times over the years and always pleased. Great location, friendly helpful staff and overall very comfortable. Minor nits. A coffee maker would be great. And the Tubs are high so a bar to hold would make it easier to climb in.

The property is in an excellent location just across Reforma from the Zona Rosa(and its high room rates).It has a beautiful garden and a traditional Mexican atmosphere. I stayed there about 14 years ago. Nothing has changed, which is great insofar as the staff are still friendly and helpful, not so great as the rooms need some updating. However, for... More

Just off Reforma avenue this hotel is in a great location. Tip: if arriving by taxi tell them the Lerma road is right behind the main government building on Reforma as they will never find the hotel by name. Positives: staff friendly and helpful. Safe taxis with published rates right outside. Good restaurants in safe walking at night. Negatives: breakfast... More

We made our reservations with plenty of time but at the end we have to make some changes and it was not a problem with the hotel. Also we ask if they can hold us a piece of our luggage and they were really nice and careful with that.The price was very reasonable and the location was perfect; the people... More

We stayed here for several days with friends, and it came highly recommended. The accommodation is good value (we stayed in a superior room, for very little extra cash this is a good upgrade), the reception staff are very helpful and the restaurant attached represents good value for money. It is in the centre of Mexico City in a nice... More

The Maria Cristina has been around for a while, but the renovations keep it from showing its age. The rooms are adequate and the restaurant is as well. What makes it special is their large lawn with garden tables with food and drink service. It's a very comfortable hotel, very reasonably priced, and I'm glad we returned. My only criticism... More
