The Hotel Isabel was very easy to get to from the airport by metro. The lobby was very charming and, with a police officer posted at the door, one should feel very safe staying there. The hotel itself is located about three to four blocks from Constitution Plaza AKA the Zocalo. While there are a good selection of eateries along... More

What the hotel lacks in style it makes up for in location. It is 4 stops from the central bus terminal and just a quick walk from the metro stop (this also means you can get to and from the airport quirky and cheaply and avoid taking a cab). From the hotel it takes around 10 minutes to reach the... More

Low budget hotel. Just 800 m from the zocalo. Wifi fine in the central parts of the building. In our room we smelled smoke when we arrived. Curtains almost gone. Not very friendly night staff. I wouldn't come back here next time, especially because we stayed here with three kids.

You can see my other reviews of the Hotel Isabel for certain details. This is my go to hotel in the budget category when in Mexico City (2-3 times a year). So, when I give it a 4-star rating, it's as a budget hotel not trying to compare it to one of the more expensive upper-end places one can stay.... More

Nothing special, you know exactly what you're getting. Good facilities, good food, friendly staff although would have liked to have seen a bit more professionalism. Wouldn't recommend staying here for more than 2/3 nights, it's certainly the sort of hotel where you should go out in to the city for the whole day to make the most of it rather... More

Clean, basic hotel in the centre of historical district. Stayed with my brother and his girlfriend recently and we all loved it. The staff were so lovely and helpful, the rooms are large if a little outdated (ask for rooms around the central courtyard as so much brighter and have high ceilings). There is a cool little bar at the... More

We stayed for one night and chose it because it's location is great. Very big rooms with comfortable beds. The bathroom it's old and gets really wet after showers. The elevator is also old and slow but not bad at all. The building is beautiful and receptionists are nice

The location of this hotel is great. You are a couple of blocks from the Zocalo and in the middle of the Historic district. Easy to walk to everything. There was always someone at the front desk that speaks English. Staff was very helpful and friendly, gave good advice for where to find things. Our room was big and clean,... More

The receptionist, Ivan G, is very friendly and helpful. He wrote down instructions for us to go to Teotihuacan and recommended places of interest and how to go there. He speaks very good English. It was such a relief to us to find someone who could speak good English. We are very grateful for his help. He is an asset... More
