If you stay here be sure to get a room on the 6th floor (we had 608 and our friend had 603 both with a balcony and they were totally quiet .) The hotel is renovating and rooms below 5th floor are awful. (When we arrived at 11pm they put us in an un-renovated room without hot water, freezing cold,... More

I stayed her a few nights when on a volcano climbing trip to the Mexico City area. The location is excellent, the rooms spacious and comfortable. What really stood out for me was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The atmosphere is very relaxed and welcoming. The water heat and pressure wasn't the greatest, and the TV selection was... More

Like the other reviews state the hotel is in a very good location in the old town. Whole sale silver sellers around the corner and only a few steps away from main plaza with the presidential palace and cathederal. Santander ATM across the street and friendly shoeshine guy on the corner. The mexican breakfest in the hotel restaurant is to... More

The Hotel Gillow is an historic building two blocks from one of the biggest city squares in the world. It is a great location within walking distance of the National Palace, the Aztec Temple, the Cathedral, the National Art Museum, the Iturbide Palace with the BANAMEX art collection, the MAP (Museum of Popular Art), the art deco Post Office building,...

This boutique hotel is one of the cleanest, friendliest, and conveniently located places in the Central Historic part of Mexico City. Just three blocks from the main square or Zocalo, there are abundant restaurants, shopping of all sorts, and activities galore. Prices at this location are very economical for the nice amenities received. In a city of 23 million, location... More

First, the hotel itself. The big plus' for this hotel is location and price. It's two blocks from the Zocola, Cathedral, Templo Mayor, and National Palace, three blocks from Bellas Artes, and one block from Madero Street, the pedestian street and shopping. The negative is, there was no air conditioning, which wasn't really a big deal, just a little warm... More

Very friendly staff, we stayed there twice and they kept the suite with balcony free for us on the second occasion too. Also the restaurant is to be recommended. Good Wi-Fi, and hard to find a better location within easy reach of metro. Very strategic for visiting the Templo Mayor, Zocalo and eating at the Café de Tacuba, Cardenal or... More

My sister insisted we stay here and I can see why. They greeted me by name each time. How often does that happen? Clean, free full buffet breakfast, nice amenities, nice balcony, comfortable beds. They were there to answer my endless questions. The rooms had a nice traditional, Mexican decoration. Statues, carved wood, rod iron balcony, marble bathroom floors. Not... More

My newly-wed wife and I stayed here for five nights in March 2014. We had a room on the 6the floor, overlooking Isabel de Católica. The staff was not incredibly fluent in English, nor us in Spanish, but they were helpful and check in went smoothly. Initially, we had no power in the room. We were getting ready to call... More
