We stayed at Hotel Catedral for 3 nights and enjoyed the very central location they offer; we were only 2 short blocks from the Zócalo and the entrance to the Metro. Very importantly the area has enough movement of tourists to make it safe to walk around after dark. During the day the street is full of vendors, but if... More

Room 605. Short and soft bed. Balcony, great! The noise level of the salsa disco across the street is unbelievably high! I normally sleep in hostel dorms and I regarded myself as pretty noise tolerant as of today. The lobby was unusable at night due to extensive floor cleaning work. There are no social areas on any floor and the... More

Loved the location, service, and remodel. This was a great find and price. Delicious buffet breakfast included with an attentive staff. Our concierge staff were extremely helpful from booking an inexpensive tour to the pyramids to how to find a safe taxi. The location couldn't have been better. Lots to see in the historic center and it felt very safe.... More

Hotel Catedral was a great find. I stayed here for 8 nights with friends and it was the perfect base for our day-tripping, so well-located near the Zocalo. In fact much of our touring was done in the immediate area. The staff was terrific, from housekeeping to the breakfast to the front desk - everyone was unfailingly pleasant and helpful... More

We loved this little hotel. It was somewhat small and crowded but we thought it was a great deal. It was well located right in the Centro Historico and the rooms were tidy and comfortable. The maid was very nice, as was the helpful lady at the tourist info desk. But the number one thing about this hotel was the... More

We liked this hotel a lot. It wasn't perfect, but remember - this is a 2-star not 4-star hotel. It can be confusing to see 5-star ratings on Trip Advisor for 2-star hotels because you arrive expecting a Four Seasons like experience. Fact is - the hotel's a little run down, the towels were frayed, the WiFi was wonky, and... More

What a pleasant surprise. Great rates, two blocks from the zocalo, exceptional staff and good food made this a place I will come back to again and again. The concierge got us great tickets to The Ballet Folklorico and was exceptionally helpful.

Great location for tourist close to on off bus, Cathedral, square, ruins and walking streets with many good restaurants. Excellent complimentary breakfast. The 7th floor balcony is a great place for a drink and to watch the ringing of the church bells. Staff is very friendly.

We were part of a tour group so cannot speak to the pricing but the room was well equipped, nice terrace on the 7th (top) floor looking towards the Zocalo (central plaza), breakfast was really good, the service was attentive, it was clean, and the restaurant was excellent! There were some occasional hiccups like one morning we didn't seem to... More

We had visited friends and eaten at the restaurant on an earlier trip, and it was my first choice for our return visit to Mexico City. I was not disappointed. Our room was lovely with a back-lit view of the cathedral at night. It is just two blocks from the Zocalo and within easy walking distance of the Metro, Belles... More
