We had the 5th floor "Private King Suite" and for $50/night we couldn't be happier. the location (right off the Zocalo) was perfect for us and the view of the zocalo from our private balcony was very nice. the room was nice, the bed comfy (though there is no daily maid service). The ensuite bathrooms were clean and fine. The shower could be better, but adequate. Hot water was plentiful as was water pressure.
The service of both the front desk as well as the various employees were examplary (e.g. we got there at 6:30am and even though check in is 2pm, we got the room by 8:30am, the desk clerk also gave us suggestions for an excellent 24-hour coffee/breakfast place (Cafe Popular)). On the last day, we checked out in the morning, but we needed to rest for a few hours before our bus at night so they opened up their "TV" room for us to rest in.
One warning though....if you are seeking a quiet place to sleep (or you are light sleeper) this is not for you. Everything from Aztec dancers in the Zocalo to Pink Floyd on the bar on the roof to Savage Garden from the restaurant downstairs will keep you entertained (or disturbed depending on your PoV) until late. We actually took this atmosphere in stride and it no doubt helped that our room was on the 5th floor (though that actually made it close to the sounds from the roof).
I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a reasonably priced excellently located hotel (and who can sleep through some noise).
