“Very happy with location, service, and stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

I had a brief stay in the Zocalo HI and I was really happy with it.
Pros:
Outstanding location alongside the world's 3rd largest public square
Friendly service
Free Wi-Fi
Free computers with printer in the lobby
Reasonably priced snack bar in the lobby
Comfortable Beds

I really don't have a con other that it takes a little long to get to the hotel from the airport during rush hours.

Some other notes: The taxi to the airport is M$195 and the return is M$165. Both were reliable and fine. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.

If it weren't for the incredible view from their restaurant balcony, we would have left after we checked-in and walked into our room. The rooms are the smallest I've been in for years, and the beds being the worst part of that. They are smaller than a double bed, and the mattress was horrible.
We had a lot of luggage, as have been traveling for a month now, and there was no where to put it... Our stuff was everywhere!!

The service staff were relatively friendly, but dissappinting that they didn't offer any suggestions for activities or sightseeing.
Instead we went to the Best Western around the corner and booked our day tours there as they have a tour desk on site.

As mentioned the view from the terrace if this hotel is amazing! It makes it worth putting up with the bed. As we know no Spanish, we are most of our meals there for 3 days, and the food was great... Reasonable prices too,

You won't help yourself from spending most of the time there hanging over the balcony and looking over the Zocalo.

Just finished a 2 night stay. As from prior reviews, the view from the restaurant of the Plaza de la Constitución is not to be missed. Didn't have breakfast, but had lunch and dinner, both okay, and when compared to similar in Australia, very well priced. We found the staff both on the front desk and in the restaurant to be friendly, efficient and very patient with our questions. Location - fantastic.

Very well location, in the center of Mexico !
Staff very friendly and smiling.

But no way to stay there for business, when you need to rest in the evenings or the WEs:
- On the 22th of November, a party happened in the 6th floor in the evening, no way to sleep !
- On the WEs, as the hotel is very near the center, many people shouting, dancing and so on in the streets, so no way to sleep further than 9 a.m. !

Good hotel for tourism, to avoid absolutely if you go there for business !

Room Tip: Do not take the 312: a very small window only ...

Just made a one night stop at this Holiday Inn over the weekend, to meet some friends. No, it's not the Four Seasons and it's not the JW Marriott, but it's a clean and pleasant hotel if you want to be next to the Zocalo in downtown Mexico City. the rooms are a bit small, nothing uncommon in a large city, but well outfitted with nice clean bedding. We did not have much interaction with the staff, but they all seemed friendly and ready to help when asked about something. In summary, we can certainly recommend this hotel especially if you want to be in the historic center. Frankly, we probably wouldn't have stayed here except that the two classic Mexican style hotels on the Zocalo were fully booked, but it worked out fine. i should add that this historic center of Mexico City seems to be extremely safe now, with a very heavy police presence along every single block. i think security in the main tourist and business areas of Mexico City is much improved in the last few years.

When in mexico city Hotel Zocalo is the place to stay not only their rooms are nice and clean but the entire staff is very efficient and friendly. Many of the employees knew some english which is very helpful if you don't know spanish. The restaurant has great food and the view from the terrace is breathtaking.

The location of this hotel is second to none, wonderful as right on top of the main square (Zocalo). The view from the restaurant on the terrace was pretty amazing. First thing in the morning you could watch the sun rise above the city, and at night you could watch it set with a cocktail in your hand, even better!

Our room was teeny tiny, with the smallest double bed we have ever had the pleasure to have sleeped in. We did however have a good size window, so lots of natural light,

The breakfast was just ok, it felt like they wanted you gone as soon as you sat down to eat your breakfast, as you saucer would be whiped away even though you would still be drinking your cup of coffee! We also tried the restaurant for a meal on the first night, the food wasn't that great, a bit greasy so couldn't even finish the meal, that is very strange for me!. The service in the eveining seemed far better than at breakfast, and the cocktails served were very tasty.
