I've now stayed at the Holel Isabel (HI) four or five times. It continues to be one of the best price deals in the historical district. Although a bit rough around the edges, it's a great budget hotel. I always ask for a room with a balcony and always get one. The streets are a bit noisy, but I like the fresh air (as fresh as it can be in DF). Room cleaning service is great! The ladies straighten and clean my room daily. I get to practice my Spanish with them and they try out their English with me. Front desk service has always been friendly and helpful. I find the beds a bit on the hard side, but that's a personal choice. Although I speak Spanish, most of the people working at the reception speak some English so as to be helpful to non-Spanish speakers. On this trip, I ate a number of meals in their restaurant. The food was traditional Mexican fare and very good. At mid-day, the restaurant was filled with locals looking for good food at a good price. As there is a travel agency in the lobby, I had the occasion to ask them several questions this trip. Although I did not book any trips through them, they were pleasant and helpful. The HI now has WI-FI in the lobby which made using my iPad very convenient. Also part of the hotel is a bar. The local patrons love kerioke. It was great fun the few evenings that I stopped in for a beer. You're also just down the street from the nearest metro station and good eateries can be found in every direction. It's a safe neighborhood if you're out walking in the evening. I look forward to my return to DF and my next stay at the Isabel.
