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

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
