This was my second time in Mexico City and from the previous experience I learned to request a quiet room. Reception personnel was not too fluent in English and they look each other when I made my request. The bell boy took my luggage and lead me to 1st floor room on the side of the main street. I explained... More

We spent 6 nights at this hotel. It is reasonably priced and well located if you need to be in the southern part of the centre. The rooms are large and comfortable, as is the bathroom, though the furnishings are a bit worn and old-fashioned. The staff are friendly enough but stretched thin. Don't ask for information at reception, go... More

My husband and I are staying here for 3 weeks and then another week towards the end of September 2013. My husband is working here in Mexico City for 4 weeks and this hotel was recommended to us. I read the reviews and had mixed feelings about staying here. That said I should mention that we have lived in Mexico... More

Mainly used by business people, judging by the looks of them at breakfast and the location which is full of office blocks. Useful for the metrobus stop which takes you up and down the main drag (Insurgentes) through the middle of the city. Be prepared to speak Spanish, not just here but everywhere in Mexico City. Some of the staff... More

This hotel would have looked OK in the eighties but nothing has been done to make it seem current or welcoming. That, however, was the leasdt of this hotel's problems. The first room was like an oven with air conditioning that did little to change the situation. So we asked to be moved and they did give us a better... More

Because of its location we have stayed at this hotel several times and this was by far the worst. There was a large group of students who decided to have a fist fight in the early morning hours right outside our door. This went on from 1:30 am until about 5:30 am. It took several calls to the front desk... More

For many years I chose el Hotelel Diplomatico as my preferred lodging, because of its convenient location, great value and excellent Mexican breakfasts. When I visited it again after ten years absence, and I was very disappointed to find the hotel looking much older and unappealing due to neglect and poor maintenence. Probably, it's under new management who isn't doing... More

This is a place to stay if you want to experience Mexico City without being a tourist. When Mexicans travel to the city to go to the bullfights they stay here. The parking lot is filled every morning by businessmen arriving for breakfast meetings. I just got back from staying a month at El Diplomatico. The street side is noisy... More

I stayed at the Diplomatico for four days, and it was a mixed experience. I would recommend it for business travelers and tourists looking for a clean and safe, no frills hotel that is safe. Pro: Very inexpensive (less than half the price of the hotels near the Zocalo) Clean good and inexpensive breakfast buffet for $100 pesos (try the... More
