The hotel had no record of our reservation, but that wasn't a problem. The guy on reception was uninterested, slow and distracted on his phone. The room itself has creaking floorboards that need screwing down to fix. Creaking bedframe and headboard. Threadbare linen and mattresses that have seen better days that are too small for the frames and expose the... More

I had 3 night stay in hotel Isabel. The location is just great - the center of old historic part of the city. For $17.00 per night I had very big room with the window. The view of horrible ruins from my window (almost as London during WWII ) did not scare me, because I was only sleeping in. Just... More

You get what you pay for. Pros: great location few blocks from Zocalo. Great view from windows. Friendly staff. Cons: shabby, uncomfortable. Almost non-existent wi-fi, tattered old sheets and towels, sagging bed, terrible shower. For that price, may as well get a really good hostel.

Had a very amazing stay at Hotel Isabel. We stayed here for a few nights before making our way down to Oaxaca de Juarez. The staff were very friendly, breakfast was amazing and loved the free wifi aswel. Elevator was just a little small we had to make two trips down to the floor to collect our luggage. I love... More

The hotel is housed in a beautiful heritage building with a huge lobby/reception area. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel. All of the major attractions in the old town are walking distance from the hotel.

A hotel from 192O that is paintent in blue and yellow like the Mexicans love it. Not luxe but charm. In the winter months it can be a little cold in the rooms. The restaurant is fine for a good breakfast. The elevator is slow and the wifi goes up and down.

My wife and I stayed in one of the rooftop shared bathroom rooms, which is an unbeatable price for the location. In contrast to most rooms in the hotel, however, these rooms are quite tiny and gloomy... and our only window to the rather warm outside was to a busy walkway, so there was the option of air circulation OR...

We stayed for only one night and it was enough. The building is quite picturesque on the inside but the rooms are not really nice... And I found a pair of (used) socks in my bed. Anyways, this hotel is ideal for those who want to explore the Historical part of the city, since the Zocalo is only a few... More

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

Staying in Centro Historico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Historico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.
