I was travelling to Mexico city on business and was planning on staying in one of the big chain hotels but was recommended the Zocalo central instead. It was the perfect boutique hotel and whilst not flashy, the room was a good size and immaculately clean. The staff were all lovely and nothing was too much trouble. I can also... More

I just got back from 5 days/4 nights in Mexico City and liked the Zocalo Central Hotel enough that this is the first TripAdvisor hotel review/recommendation I have ever written. As a solo traveler from the U.S., who doesn't speak Spanish, I very much wanted--and was happy to find--a hotel that was ideally located in the heart of Mexico City's... More

Upon arrival we were served an Agua de Horchata and sweets at the reception. Our room was on the 5th floor. It was just a perfect size with 2 single beds as requested. It was very spotless clean and well decorated, with a touch of modernism and tradition. The closet was spacious, safe was working, shower was perfect and though... More

We stayed for 4 days in a junior suite with a jacuzzi. The room was gorgeous with a view to the Cathedral and the Zocalo.

We stayed here for 6 days. It was very nice, clean, friendly staff. We took a junior suite which had a very nice hot-tub bath. The hotel is very central for tourists and the roof top terrace is very nice. Although as it is so central, the surroundings can be noisy. Due to the traffic situation in Mexico, check first...

We could not say enough about how nice,friendly and helpful the staff were. Would completely recommend this hotel. My decision of switching my usual hotel at Mexico City was the correct option. I will come back.

Helpful, friendly staff who spoke good English. Lovely rooftop restaurant overlooking the main square where a good buffet breakfast was served. Our room was small with a tiny double bed and the air con seems to be turned off during the night which made it very hot in the room. We should have asked for a bigger room and bed... More
