I stay here every time I visit DF the owner is super helpful, the linen fresh and clean and it's just a few metro stops from the city centre. Easy to get to by metro from the airport. Sure sometimes the cleaning is less than perfect. It's a $20 a night hotel with private bath and free WiFi so don't... More

I started my trip through Mexico in this hotel in which i stayed 3 nights. Small, simple room but what else would you need? The owner Javier and Eduardo speak fluent english and when something went wrong with my car rental they arranged a new one to be brought to the hotel the next day. They told me which places... More

The cleanliness of the hotel is very unsatisfactory, there was hair on the bathroom floor and even a condom in the sink (since the hotel works in a zone of prostitution, including you can hear pleasure moans from the other rooms). In addition to the pleasure moans, another thing that disturbs the sleep of the guests is the loud outside... More

My boyfriend and I arrived here for 2 nights and from the word go the owner couldn't have been more helpful. We had all you could ask for; a clean room, wifi, food available all day/night for a very low price. The hotel is also very close to the metro, the best way to travel around the city. To top...

Hotel La Selva has such a high note both in Booking and on Tripadvisor that we decided to give it a try. We left after two nights instead of five that we'd planned originally. There are some good things about the hotel for sure: -incredibly cheap. The basic rooms are just 160 pesos and for this price are quite ok.... More

Start with the bad: 1. The bed is terribly solid and uncomfortable - nothing a little tequila couldn't fix. 2. The room is small and dirty. As one person wrote, there's black stuff stuck to the floor that turned spots of my towel brown when laid on the floor. 3. The light is dim, the door is broken and the... More

My husband and I really hated our first night here. We had room C and it stank of cigarette smoke and there were no windows open to the outside. Also, the faucet in the bathroom sink had one of those public bathroom nozzles on it so you had to hold the faucet open with one hand while trying to wash... More

It was an adventure to sleep there, indeed:) The hotel staff is very nice. The dirt in our room was unacceptable; old furniture (usually I don't mind but...it seems taken from trash), scary carpet with black bits stuck to it...it seemed as if only thing that was cleaned was bed area (bed linen was also clean). Located close to Chabacano... More
