“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

We have been going to Hotel Catedral for thirty years!!! We are always met by Luis and Gustavo who have both been working there for twenty years...we have literally watched them grow up!!!
Their welcoming faces and attention to our needs is remarkable; the hotel simply would not be the same without them. Whoever the owner is must really love people because his/her staff have always treated us with such incredible care. Every need is provided for in a timely and caring fashion. This kind of care has to come down from the TOP. Thank you to all the staff for always making us feel cared for.

Room Tip: The area around the zocolo is festive which we like when we are out. When we sleep we prefer it to...

We had a recent trip to Mexico City. Upon advise of some friends we chose to stay at Hotel Catedral in the Historical District. This was a very convenient location close to many attractions, restaurants, shopping and museums. Hotel was smaller but service was exceptional. Rooms were very clean. Personnel always greeted us with smile. Breakfast, which was included in our package was fabulous. Buffet style menu kept changing everyday and providing both continental and excellent Mexican choices. We could visit this hotel for the sake of the food there. Minor details such as a plate of cookies, guavas, or peanuts at the main lobby would make us feel at home. The concierge service was excellent. The prices they provided for tours or authorized taxis were much cheaper than many other places. Internet was available in our room. We had a very positive experience. Mexico City is an amazing destination for people seeking exceptional cultural and culinary experience and Hotel Catedral is a fine example of Mexican hospitality.

Room Tip: 7th floor patio has a magnificent view of the Zocalo.

This is a great find within very short walking distance of the Zocalo and other main buildings in the city's center.

The busy lobby has a separate desk for ordering tours and taxis which is most helpful and the front desk staff is very accommodating. The rooms are spacious, well-appointed and clean. A delicious buffet breakast is included in the price and there is also a good restaurant in the hotel.

The rooftop patio has great views and you can order drinks and food up from the restaurant.

Room Tip: Try getting a room that is not on the top floor and not facing onto the street.

We arrived without reservation at 6 a.m. and although our room was not yet ready, the receptionist kindly offered us another room, where we could use the bathroom and leave our luggage. We were so happy! Rooms are clean, there is nothing you can claim about. Location is perfect. Best offer in Mexico City Centro Historico.

What a great makeover they have done. Rooms small but complete, with safes, multiple pillows, attractive decor ... Beds comfy, bathrooms very nicely done .... and clean clean clean. Staff very accommodating and helpful . Location could not be better for Zocalo, Nacional Palacio, Templo Mayor, Bellas Artes, Santo Domingo Plaza ...

We walked in on a Saturday morning and made reservations right away ... no problem for 2 rooms in the beginning of February. I am so going back here on my next trip for its great service and rooms, proximity to all the downtown museums/art .... and restaurants ....

Room Tip: We were on the first floor interior which was fine .... my friend was on the 3rd facing the cathedra...

Hotel Catedral is right near the Zocalo in Mexico City, and wonderful walking to shops, book stores, and more. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and ours, on the 4th floor, was very quiet with a lovely view of the towers of cathedral. They should make sure their showers have mats or slipping, though, as for the first time in my life I slipped and almost fell on the extremely slippery tiles. Reception and concierge did not speak English, though I am fluent in Spanish. Breakfast is excellent with a huge variety of delicious foods. We had a wonderful trip!

Room Tip: The 7th floor has terrific views but no rooms were available when we went. There are outdoors terrac...
