This is a clean, inexpensive hotel centrally located in Mexico City. You are about 10 minutes walk to the Salto del Agua metro station and if you walk north two blocks on Luis Moya, line 4 (ruta sur) of the Metrobus runs along Ayuntamiento. You are very close to the artisan's market of Ciudadela (which I recommend) There is an OXXO a couple of blocks away as well.
The reception staff is friendly but speaks almost no English. Fortunately I speak enough Spanish to get by so there was no problem.
The rooms, and the hotel in general has almost the feel of a high end love hotel. Don't get me wrong. There was nothing overtly sleazy about this place, but it looked like a place people would go for a romantic night with a significant other rather than a place popular with tourists. The reception has a sign prominently notifying guests that to bring an additional person into the room costs 100 pesos. The rooms have radio with speakers built into the ceiling and by the bed on the wall, there is a switch where you can choose between 3 or 4 pre-selected radio stations, all of them being romance music stations. And of course there is the huge bed in the room that is big enough for four people to spread out!
As for the room itself, there was nothing to complain about at all. It was perfectly large enough for 1 or 2 people, it had tons of drawer space and a closet for hanging things up, cable TV with only Spanish channels, and the huge bed that took up the bulk of the room. To turn on the electricity, you deposit your key into a slot on the wall once inside the room. The built in lighting works on a motion sensor, and as previously mentioned, can get a little annoying as you are walking around the room, but this is by no means a deal breaker to me.. The bathroom was large, modern, and kept spotlessly clean everyday. The bathroom supplies provided were basic shampoo and soap.
There is a menu in the room for room service from the restaurant downstairs (that is open every day but Sundays) with prices identical to those on the restaurant menu. The prices were very reasonable in my opinion.
I paid $42 including tax for this room and at that price, I couldn't have asked for more. It was clean, comfortable, safe, and in a central location. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
