“Good value and great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Right behind the Catedral Metropolitana, this hotel was a great find for our three nights in DF. Breakfast was included- either a buffet in breakfast room or a la carte in restaurant. Liked the restaurant best as it was from a menu and very tasty. You had a credit of up to 75 pesos for this and just about impossible to go over. The hotel, itself, has nice remodeled rooms, spacious and clean. Any problems are addressed immediately by staff. There is a nice rooftop terrace where you can take your own drinks and sit and admire view. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: First floor is in midst of Reno so request a room from 2nd to 6th floor.

In January, I stayed in this hotel for the second time. Since my last visit, many of the rooms in this hotel have been remodeled, and I must say, my stay here was even more pleasant than the first time. It is not a large hotel, nor a particularly luxurious one, but it is extremely comfortable, and a bargain for the price. The location near the Zocalo is great, the rooms are quite pleasant, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the view from the 7th. floor terrace is unbeatable. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Mexico City.

I visited Hotel Catedral in January, 2013, for another excellent "comida corrida" in their restaurant, El Retiro. 2013 marks my 20th year as a client of the restaurant and the hotel, and both have yet to disappoint me. I cannot think of a better match between reasonable prices and high quality, anywhere.

Several staff persons remembered me (always an honor), and they were happy to show off the various changes since I was there last (four or five years ago - too long). Rooms, lobby, and restaurant have been refreshed and updated. The quality of food remains the same.

I will be back!

Room Tip: I've always chosen a high room in back (cathedral side). Yes, especialy on weekends, area event...

This hotel has a great location, especially for those who want to stay in the historic city center. Prices are not expensive and the staff is very kind, as generally throughout Mexico. People are extremely friendly in this country. The problem is that if you are a light sleeper, you will have a lot of trouble trying to sleep, because of the noise from a disco that goes late into the night. If it were not for the noise and the fact of the mattress be a little bit hard, it would be an excellent choice to stay.

It is an honor for us to have received in our hotel and know that everything was to his liking. Fortunately as mentioned our location is suitable to meet the main locations in the center of town so we invite it on your next visit to see some of which handle tour. We also handle buffet breakfast starting at 8 at 11:30 am.

Regarding the disco and we worked on it, got up a letter to the authorities in order to avoid this inconvenience to you. I respect what the mattress if sincere thank you very much for your comment and creame comment will be considered for review

Look forward to your visit soon.

Construction noise starts about 8 and continues through the evening. It is very very loud. Ear plugs will not block the noise. On check-in, the front desk staff told us the noise would not begin until after ten in the morning - not true.

Sorry to hear that your stay was not satisfactory and verify the hours you are working in building remodeling, believe that the work actually does not work that night if safe because the rest of the guests is very imporant for us and we offer an apology for the inconvenience you had and thank you very much for your sincere comment.

We hope and trust that we will soon visit in order to change this detail we had with you.

Great location to the center hub of the city with easy walking access to restaurants, historical sights, subway, and shops. The staff are happy, helpful, and speak English. They called a taxi for us when it was time to return to the airport and let us wait in the lobby while eating free snacks. Their breakfast was delicious and they are ready to serve even tho it's a buffet style. Our room was clean and quiet. We would return!

Hotel Catedral is highly rated for a reason (or rather, several): prime location in the heart of the city near the Zocalo, friendly yet professional service, good restaurants, free parking (if you're crazy enough to drive around town), and - most importantly - clean, modern rooms, all for a ridiculously reasonable price.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for one of the recently remodeled rooms - worth the small extra cost.
