Can't complain too much with the price but the room we stayed had bad smell; couldn't sleep first night with the smell. Then we asked to change the room next day but we were refused. The evening front desk guy was not friendly.

This is a BUDGET motel. It does not have amenities. But it IS cheap, cheaper than the hostels with dorms and shared bathrooms. Here are my thoughts: PROs: - very convenient location near zocalo (plaza) and metro/ bus stations - cafe with good food, decent prices - bar with decent drinks -lobby with computers with Wi-Fi (for a fee) -free...

In a great location in the old town, perfect for sight seeing. Nice old building, old fashion but in a nice way. Huge rooms, good value, very clean and friendly staff. If you are on the side of the street it is pretty noisy to try and sleep, as it is a busy road.

So, yes, the hotel is just a few short blocks from Zocalo. And yes, our double room only cost $450 pesos. However, although our stay wasn't terrible, I wouldn't tell someone that I suggest they stay here if they are visiting. For one, the man who checked us in was not polite. He kept answering the phone in the middle... More

For travelers who are adventurous but need a decent place to rest after a whole day of walking up and down the beautiful centro historico, this is an excellent choice. In a very pretty old building, with comfy bedrooms with a balcony overlooking Isabel la Catolica street, a good restaurant and joyful cantina, close to a main subway station (Pino... More

A Good Choice For The Budget Traveler The Hotel Isabel is my go-to hotel two to three times a year when I'm in the city. First, it is centrally located in the Centro Historico and just three blocks away from a metro stop (Isabel la Catolica). If you are traveling light, save the taxi fare by taking the metro from...

The best thing I can say about Hotel Isabel is that we slept very well there. The lobby is cute, bright colors and vaulted ceilings daylighted through the floor above. The room decor is really quite terrible, and noise is a factor. Earplugs are a must. But everything was comfortable enough, and our main criteria the nights we were at... More

I stayed here 2 nights. The hotel is close to metro station (5 minutes walking distance) and Zocalo square. The room was large, quote and bright, very clean and comfortable. The rooms are arranged around an interior atrium which gives a good deal of its charm. the beds are rigid. Breakfast is non included but there is a coffee inside... More
