Do not stay here under any condition! There are constructions taking place and the fumes will make you faint and will lead to health problems! Had to argue for nearly an hour to get our money back. Reception man was helpful but hotel should be honest and close certain floors at this time. Do not stay unless you want to... More

I've stayed here twice and had a great experience both times. It is convenient, clean and affordable, the rooms are enourmous if basic. It's an easy walk to all the attractions in the old city as well as subway stations, food and shopping. You might find it loud if you aren't used to city noise, and sometimes the entry can... More

Badly in needed of updating at least the bathrooms in each room, the living quarters are spacious and clean and the hotel is itself a beautiful building. Beds are comfy, but some of the rooms can be noisy. It is well located, a good price and staff are friendly and helpful. The food is great and the restaurant and bar... More

I first stayed at Hotel Isabel 5 years ago and was pleasantly surprised by how clean & safe it was for its central location and such a decent price. My friend and I had a triple room, with a hint of a view, for just the two of us. In the intervening 5 years, Isabel is looking pretty worn around... More

Hotel Isabel is wonderfully located in the historical center of Mexico City. You have easy access to the Zocolo, Cathedral, National Palace, Templo Mayor and all the wonderful ambiance of the inner city. The Metro is easily useable to access all the other important sites. The Anthropology Museum is a metro ride away with easy access to all the Park... More

Excellent hotel in the middle of it all! There is a kickass bar on the first floor where a lot of locals hang and a decent restaurant too! The hotel is clean, beautiful, safe and the staff are awesome. This is my go-to in the city for sure! Did I mention it's 25-30 a night?

Very central location near Temple Mayor and other attractions. Food stores and a burger place nearby (Pirate Burgers) The room was huge and fairly clean. Decent bathroom. Wifi included. Ok restaurant. Friendly staff, helped us with a bag left in the taxi taking us there. Travel agency for booking busses next door. I recommend this place.

We stayed in a triple room with private bathroom, luckily not on the Main Street so there was not much traffic noise. The room was spacious but clean, with 1975 decor and furniture. :-) when comparing prices to neighboring hostels, this was by far the best value for a triple (cheaper by about $12 USD per night). The restaurant inside... More

This is a venerable queen, with lots of Porfirismo touches. The mezzanine is a must see, if if you are not staying in one of the rooms opening directly onto it. The old writing desks at least still have chairs, and the abundance of tile is comforting. The beds are not much (unless they're replacing the mattresses), but it's the... More
