The hotel is clean and attractive and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Thank you very much Rodrigo, David, Tania, and Ruth. We had a great time!

When we arrived to Zocalo Central, we arrived 30 minutes early before our check in time. We had to wait over 45 minutes after our check in time, and the front desk didn't seem to hurried or bothered about it. Once we finally got our room keys, our bellhop made our entrance to the room a little awkward. He walked... More

We spent 5 nights at the Zocalo Central over Easter 2015 and we had a great time. The rooms were lovely, large and in the older style although the rooms were in very good condition. The hotel is is a great spot just across from the main square and we were able to watch the Easter parade from our room.... More

The staff treats you like royalty from the start! There is great attention to details, such as slippers and robes, purified water, candy, etc. the staff bends over backwards to assist you with any request. The location is perfect, noise very low, value is excellent! Did I mention clean and safe? A job well done!

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
