Clean room, great location in a safety area of the neibourhood. Great connection with public transport. The restaurant is also a good option to eat (specially the breakfast). Is nothing luxury, but the price and the room offered are more than ok for the location.

I stayed here for the beginning of a tour, so really had no choice and it was a disgusting hotel. The pillows were horrible and the pillow cases were torn, I had to go and buy new pillows and cases. The stench of cigarettes in the room was terrible, so much that I have woken up with a sore throat.... More

The location is very good near the historic centre, amongst the hustle of the electrical shops area. Lonely at night when all the shops are shuttered up. Basic ageing facilities but clean, good budget hotel. Little outside noise but some noise from other rooms. WiFi signal in the room but internet drops on occasions. Plenty of hot water, new towels...

This is a budget hotel located close to the historic centre of the city. During the day, it's pretty busy with all the people and shops around. Even wandering late-ish around 11pm, the area still feels safe. For non historic centre activities, the location is not too bad as there's 3 metro status close by and plenty of places to... More

It is like a dirty dormitory room. Small beds. Dirty walls, floors, and bathroom tiles. Front desk does not provide any service. Only people at hotel that are helpful are bellboys and restaurant staff. We paid $35 USD a night. Cheap price, but nothing good to say except that it is convenient to subway and historic area.

This is a simple hotel. No great rooms or amenities, but is clean and the staff is kind. The courtins are very thick, so no light to disturb you if you like to wake up late. An amazing choice if you're on a budget. Great for getting to know Mexico City downtown, it has a great location to do everything... More

This Hotel is clean and comfortable and in a good location for the historical area of Mexico City. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the restaurant has basic food - but tastes just fine. Was happy with my stay here.

My tour started at this hotel so thought I would book myself one night before the tour started. Location pretty central. Good value - pretty inexpensive. you get what you pay for. Did not enjoy the breakfast buffet in the morning. Front desk staff spoke almost no English so that was difficult. Rooms were clean though.

Staying in Centro Historico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Historico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.
