This hotel is in the perfect place to walk all over the Historic District of Mexico City. We loved being so close to everything, having a great restaurant attached to the hotel, and a convenience store right next door.
The rooms were clean and all we needed to rest up after walking around all day. They have purified water available on each floor, and each room comes with a pitcher and glasses. We did not get Wi-Fi in the room, but I would go sit in this cute indoor courtyard next to some birds and use it there. The hotel has a late check out, which is super awesome.
There is no shortage of places to eat in the area, or even just to buy snacks. The Pollo place across the street is so good for an affordable meal. The streets in this part of town are very clean (trash wise; it's old, so that part isn't getting washed away) and there are plenty of police to keep you feeling safe. We walked around during the day and night and never felt unsafe. This area is busy and crowded. Most tourist attractions are free to the Mexican people on Sundays, so plan your days.
