The Zócalo is always interesting! Walk Calle Madero for street entertainment, cheap dresses at Líneas shop, ice creams & one block south on Calle 16 de Septiembre, my fave place, Jugos Canadá for fresh juices & the best tortas anywhere! Easy to get to on metro & can walk from Insurgentes/Reforma area. I've never had problems with safety. Ask around... More

Very convenient and comfortable for a first-time city break to DF. Staff were attentive and free bottled water was a plus. Metro is close by. It couldn't have been better! If you have a couple days head to coyoacan and teotihuacan...

Our whole family stayed at this wonderful little jewel. Corner suites facing the Zócalo are a must. Wonderful views of the cathedral and Zócalo. Super clean and spacious. Nice decor and ambiance. We particularly enjoyed the daily complementary juices at the lobby. The terrace is wonderful, however children are not allowed due to some nonsense smoking policy. The staff was... More

from the minute you enter this magical place you feel comfortable and attended to. It is beautiful and well located. The staff went out of their way to focus on the hotel guests. Centrado en ti is the theme and rightly so. Beds are comfortable, rooms large. Free water and apples. But the staff were genuinely interested in the guest... More

The hotel is centrally located within the historic district of Mexico City, hard to find a better location from a touristic perspective. A few minutes walk from the Zocalo, the public transportation (subway, bus, etc) and restaurants/coffees. We did appreciate the following points : efficient check in, free wifi (good quality) in the room, free water every day in the... More

Clean, comfortable and well-located, right in the centre next to the cathedral. Excellent breakfast with fresh fruit and juices included. Restaurant also serving authentic Mexican dishes. Rooms are very comfortable with much-needed air-conditioning, free coffee and bottles of water. There are also fruit bowls throughout the hotel for you to help yourself.

We arrived at 4am the morning before check in and paid a surplus to check in early - worked out to only be about £30 pounds. The staff were very attentive and welcoming at any time of the day/night. Free water and fruit which is a massive plus and had a TV with various channels in diff languages. The Terrace... More

Despite not arriving until almost midnight the welcome was warm and the check in efficient. Our room was compact with 2 4ft beds, an easy chair and a desk & chair. It had a safe, coffee maker and tv but no fridge. The bathroom had a separate shower and standard accessories. The room also has free Wi-Fi and free water.... More
