“My choice in Mexico City”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

OK, to be honest I have only stayed here in Mexico City but I have stayed there 3 times because for the money and the location it's great. The staff is lovely from the housekeepers on. Is it real new and fancy? No, it's not. It's old and comfy and I like it. The rooms are large and always clean and they will come up at ANY hour and clean it for you if you want/need them to. You can get tours arranged at the front desk if you want to go on one and there are 2 Metro stops in short walking distance as well as plenty of "street food" and other conveniences". The restaurant is not bad and there is live music in the bar. After reading some of the other reviews I am firmly convinced some people should never leave their own homes let alone their own country.The Prim is not a 5 Star Luxury Hotel and if you want 5 star PAY for 5 star It is what it is, a friendly, clean and safe place to lay your head when visiting Mexico City.

Room Tip: Get a suite if you can

I paid over $50 to stay, but it's definetly NOT a 4 stars hotel. You can find much better in the same area for less. Windows had shots, bathroom all broken, pillows and bed with no sheets, no toilet paper. The only good thing about the hotel si the staff. It's not a touristic hotel!

I booked online so I wasn't familiar with the hotel when I arrived. The internet rate is like half the regular rate. But, even then... the room is dilapidated. The window was cracked. The toilet seat was broken. The carpet was threadbare. The few pieces of furniture in the lobby was falling apart. I went to the restaurant for a cup of ice, and the rude woman/maitre d' told me if I asked her again, she was going to charge me for the ice. The kitchen was open to the dining room, and looking at it, I didn't bother eating there even with the complimentary breakfast.

Booking online, i thought this hotel was decent. The pictures are a lie.
For $35 you get ruin down room, with chipped furnitures of very bad taste and old carpet. The bath room is nice and pleasant. The place is hot (i do not remember if they have AC). The inside looks like an old hotel from the 60's.
The buffet is good, but be careful, your free breakfast is not for the Buffet. Only for a tea, bread and juice. (i had to pay $7 extra for the buffet i had eaten without knowing that).
The employees were nice and pleasant.

MY REAL COMPLAIN IS : The room do not look as nice as they seem on the picture and it really look like a low class hotel in the lobby. If i were paying 15/20 USD i would understand but for $30+ you can get a lot better in DF.

But the neighborhood is good. Only the area of the station is questionable.

This hotel is the worst I have been to. No A/C, they give you complimentary hot water bottles, then you ask for ice, they send you to go buy at supermarket, they charge you for hot water, they charge you for breakfast for children, roaches crawling up the walls, bathroom dirty and sticks. Rooms are stinky, stuffy, no ceilings or floor fans. Not recommended for people with Asthma. Rugs very dirty in room. Stood there 1 night and checked out before my time, I was fully reimbursed my 2 nights. DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL!

It is very in need of a renovation. It's very 1970s with its oranges, brown and red colours. Although it is outdated the rooms are kept very clean. We got a very large room with a living area. At first I thought it was grotty and old but It's cheap and the location makes up for it. You can walk to most places easily. The free breakfast is not the best but its free. Our room was at the back so it was hard for us to pick up the wireless. All in all I'd recomend this place for the location and it's cheapness, so long as you can put up with the terrible 70's decor.
