“Biggest bed Ive ever seen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

The hotel is small and a little on the old side. No Air conditioning, just a pedestal fan. TV didn't get much reception. The shower was a bit average.

The location was good, a short walk to Alemeda Park and then onto a few other landmarks. Felt very safe in the area. Shops close by.

The staff here were pretty good, very helpful. For what I paid to stay here, it was certainly worth the money. I would stay here again

Very good hotel considering its price! Nice location, very close to Zona Rosa and night life. Room is clean and bed is comfortable. Breakfast is good as well!Staff is friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this hotel for its value!

The hotel is very conveniently located in the Zona Rosa. The hotel area is very safe to walk around the night. The room is very basic with no frills but very clean. The staff was very accommodating giving us directions and maps. The breakfast was abundant with a variety of hot and cold choices and fresh fruits. There is no air conditioning in the room but by opening the windows and turning on the fan you won't miss the AC. The bathroom was very small. If you are looking for a beautiful room please look somewhere else. I don't think I would come back to the hotel because I enjoy a little more luxury and a cold air conditioner after walking around the city. There is an amazing food stand next to 7-Eleven five tacos for 250 pesos ($2.25).

For starters our rooms were a little bit more expensive than were quoted on the Expedia site. Only about US$10. We ended up staying an extra night. And they were very accommodating of that. The rooms were clean and very well-kept, our particular room faced the street and it was pretty nice - a little noisy but not too bad. Zona Rosa is a great district in Mexico City -bars, restaurants and lots of tourist attractions are pretty close by. Most of the staff at this hotel spoke English so that was helpful. We owed on our bill and they were very gracious and let us pay on the last day. As we did not have pesos. Would definitely stay here again on our next visit to Mexico City. This is a great hotel to wake up, walk outside get your coffee, get your tacos (5 for 25 pesos!) and start your day.

We stayed here for a week in February 2014 whilst visiting Mexico city. We chose it because of its location and we weren't disappointed - it is 10 minutes walk to the metro, and 5 minutes walk to the express bus and the centre of the zona rosa. The area has a good range of places to eat and is very safe. The rooms are fairly basic, but they are very clean, the bed is very comfortable, and the free wifi connection was reasonably fast. We booked over the internet and found the rooms very cheap.
What makes the hotel special are the staff; nothing was ever too much trouble ! They looked after our luggage whist we went to the coast and gave us the internet discount for our second stay despite us not having booked in advance. We would certainly stay there again !

This hotel is located in a nice location close to plenty of bars, transportation and restaurants. My single was pretty small but for $43 a night it was a decent value. My one problem was that the bedsheets were worn and the pillows both were clumpy and needed to be replaced. It's surprising that the hotel has not replaced them. Also, the room was a bit dark but maybe that was just my room. It also gets somewhat loud if people like housekeeping staff are talking in the hallways. The wifi was strong. The staff is nice and friendly.

Booking this hotel on expedia was a great bargain and we felt that it was a very good hotel for our budget. Helpful staff at the front desk spoke English. Rooms were clean and beds comfy. Seemed like a nice safe neighbourhood within the zona rosa and about a 5 minute walk to Reforma. Metro station was about a 10 minute walk. There were a few restaurants within a short walk and there was a dining room in the hotel, although we didn't eat there.
