The El Diplomatico offers nothing fancy. Room is huge, but worn. No english language TV channels. The restaurant was subpar and breakfast was nothing fancy. Room service laundry was ok, but took two days.

What a shame. The location is great and a beautiful park is just across the street. Few hotels in the neighborhood. But the state of rooms, dirt, linens... Unacceptable. I hosted French friends and had to move them to another hotel with my apologies. It used to be fine. Not anymore

Midclass hotel in Insurgentes. Good relation between price and what you get. In that class there is always not only light but also shadow. But in total a good hotel for an affordable price in an enormous city. Good connection to public transport. Metrobus, a fast line, leaves directly from the hotel. Noise from the street or from the backyard... More

Staff very friendly. Room clean. Very close to Estadio Azul and good places to eat and drink. Safe area. I went Solo for long weekend and speak barely basic Spanish. Great trip. Mexico City is good solo trip if you are comfortable with Solo trips.

I stayed here during a conference at UNAM. The price is very good but the rooms were old and tired. Many stains on the carpets and very worn. We had several plumbing issues during our 1 week stay. The small fridge in the room did not work. The restaurant had average foods, however some of the wait staff were downright... More

I stayed in this hotel while attending a conference. Overall it was fine for me - the room was spacious and clean, with no real issues. However, other people at the conference reported rooms with loose electrical fittings, shower doors that wouldn't close etc. so I guess I was slightly lucky in my room having no issues. I had a...

I believe the Hotel El Diplomatico could be the better in Mexico DF, but the lack of tolerance and friendliness of your staff will never come. Situation that happened to me: I was sharing an apartment with a friend who came from Argentina and were going to spend 6 days, then each paid 3 daily at the hotel, but my... More
