The hotel is located in a filthy road in the city centre. Hall and rooms look acceptable but I must say the service is awful. The WC in our room didn't work and my friend and I had to use a toilet bin filled with water to clean it after use, for three days! Moreover the autoclave was located next... More

I booked this hotel via www.hotwire.com. To be honest, it is perfectly located, one block from "Paseo de la Reforma", two blocks from "La Alameda", three blocks from "El Monumento a la Revolución" and a walking distance from "El Ángel de la Independencia". Room's amenities are not perfect, but its worth its price. Bathroom is too old, the same as... More

I have stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in December 2013. It is hard to understand how this structure got 4 stars because I would barely go for max 1. Rooms were pretty spacious but noisy and old. The entire property would need a complete restoration. Bathroom was not properly cleaned and due to some works on pipes we... More

I have stayed in many hostels and hotels and have traveled far and wide, and this hotel was one of the worst ever. Although the location is good, and the price reasonable ($50/night), it wasn't worth half that. Our room was not adequately cleaned (dirty and musty carpet, trash from previous guests left in room, previous guests soap in shower)... More

Not the flashest place but does the job. We stayed here with our tour group at a beginning of a tour. Great location, many attractions within a short walk and near to an OXXO (convenience store where you can buy bottled water etc). Rooms are basic but spacious, and have all you need. Beds, bathroom etc were clean. Carpet was... More

I stayed one night at this hotel at the end of my holiday and that was enough. My room was really hot and stuffy (the hotel has no air con and the fan provided just blew the hot air around the room) and the window would not open making it almost unbearable. The reception said they were fully booked and... More

Stayed here december 29, 2012-1st room had dirty bathroom, second room not much better. Location is terrific. Many rooms recently renovated -could be cleaned better. After complaining, the hotel made everything right. Also only one of the 2 elevators are in use- they both work but one seems to be on a long term break. this place could be great... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights at the start of a tour. The location was fantastic - right in the Historical District. The lane this hotel is located in is not overly safe, however it is close to the main road (approx 100m) which I would consider safe. The first drawback of this hotel was noise. I think... More

My first touch of Mexico, I spent there 2 nights. Very quiet place, very close to Latino Tower, Zocalo, Templo Mayor, just 20 minutes by walk. On the pavement to main street you can bay very fresh "jugo da narancha" and price is insuperable in whole Mexico, 20 pesos only. Very close are shops, OXXO and restaurants. Comfortable rooms, in...
