I recently stayed at the Camino Real Polanco hotel in Mexico City and I have to comment that the staff were really friendly and courteous and the service was fantastic. The hotel may be one of the older ones in the area however it has everything you would want for your stay.

This hotel is OK, and I certainly didn't have a negative experience. I guess this hotel does well with business travellers like myself and is a 'safe choice'. Here are my thoughts

Good:
-spacious rooms
-comfortable beds
-all amenities provided for
-very comfortable

Not so good
- bordering on 'characterless'
- room decor looks a bit dated to me, and frankly a little unattractive
- located in the upmarket district of Polanco, it's easy to see how apprehensive first timers to Mexico City might be reassured by this. but if you like to have a walk around in the evenings and stumble across a nice bar/restaurant..then there are more beautiful places in Mexico City to stay!

Terrible experience, very bad maintenance to a property that dates back from the 60´s. Rooms are old, smelly. I had to request a room change five minutes after checking in due to a sewer smell. The property looks outdated. Food in the all day dining restaurant was bland and unappealing. Their other F&B outlets are very nice, and they are the only thing that I can say I did like about this hotel

Stayed October 1st-4th and had a room backing on to the garden / pool area which was nice and quiet and also allowed me to have the balcony windows open without lots of noise. Room was really comfortable and large - nice to have a balcony too.

Food was reasonable in the main buffet restaurant - nothing standout, but good enough.

Staff all good too, especially helpful sorting out taxi's etc and location also good for the main museum in the park

Room Tip: backing on to the garden / pool was great for being quiet

Although the hotel is 45 yrs old it's been moderately renovated. Rooms are okay but hallways look a bit old..
The biggest downside is that when inside your room you feel like you're outside in traffic. You can literally hear every car that passes by as if it were right beside you. Hopefully i'll be able to sleep..

I was in this hotel for a trade show and I have no experience in any other Mexican hotel to compare with, so I can only say that this hotel is better than average comparing to many standard American businessman hotels. There is a bit of similarity to a Caribbean type of resort hotel but with an atmosphere that the hotel is primarily for conventions and business affairs. The lobby is always busy with lots of ambience of noises because of low ceilings. The noise in the lobby is funneled to upper floors by an open shaft adjacent to the elevators. There is an air of spaciousness as the hall ways are wide. The rooms are huge by any international standard.

There are many restaurants in the hotel, including one by Morimoto the American Iron Chef. I only had the buffet breakfast and a quick supper in the ground floor restaurant though I have walked in to the fancier restaurants on the upper floors for quick peaks. The upper floor restaurant appear to be of more expensive and high end. The food in the ground floor restaurant is average at best. The breakfast consists of standard fare such as a limited choice of delicatesan and two types of eggs. Most of the buffet choices are of Mexican food variety of haricot basis which I avoided in fear of gas attack especially my stay in the hotel was for trade show participation. The spaghetti bolognesse for dinner is below expected grade for its price. The amenities in the room is very good. I avoided drinking any water so I only drank beer which was priced very reasonably at about $5.00.

The mattress is semi firm, a bit soft for those with weak backs especially after long hours of trade show attendance. The bath room is of medium size to big highlighted by a nice glass enclosed and red granite walled shower stall equipped with a wide rainfall shower head. I stayed under the shower for half an hour comfortably after the gruesome punishment of trade show standing daily.

My last night of hotel stay was spent in the hotel's dance club near the china grill restaurant after having noted so many beautiful and young well proportioned Hispanic ladies all dressed in black mini mini skirts and with spiky high heels, waking upstairs to some restaurants. If not because of the terrible back pain in my back arising from eight hours of standing in my trade show booth, I would have thought I was in a very chic London dance club that I once had visited. On the whole, the hotel is above average of a standard American businessman hotel.

Located just a block away from the Chapultepec park---the biggest city park in north America, the hotel is just 10minutes walk from the Castillo, museum of modern art, museum of anthropology and the rifino Tamayo museum. The anthropology museum is ranked very highly in the world and is well worth a visit if you have 2 hours to spare.

The back door of the front entrance opens to another busy boulevard, across this heavily traversed one way street, there is a tuck store similar to 7/11 where one can buy prepared sandwiches, pops and distilled water. I bought a 10.2 liter water bottle for my 5 day stay in the hotel so I could drink and brush my teeth with no fear of any expected stomach attack from local tap water.

The concierge and bell service personnel all speak English who have been very helpful to me during my stay. I was left with a good feeling when I checked out this hotel. No complaint at all.

Room Tip: There are four museums within 10minutes walk from the hotel, if you have two hours only, give the mu...
