“A Great Deal in the DF!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

This hotel may seem uninviting, at first. Don't be put off...! For about 20 bucks a night, The Juarez is unbeatable! It is clean, safe and located in the heart of the Centro Historico; close to shops, cafes, the Metro and the Zocalo! The hotel provides 2 bottles of filtered water a day, friendly staff and a good place to sleep. Plus, cable TV! Basic Spanish is helpful but, the staff is very patient and understanding if your Spanish isn't sharp! Basic amenities at a rock bottom price. Steps away, travelers are spending over 120 USD a night for a "Name Brand" US style hotel. Save your money! Spend it on good food and shopping! Stay at the Juarez! (The Juarez does not have a "pool" or a "cafe")

Room Tip: Ask for the top floor.

As backpacker travelers, we are never very demanding, we are accustomed to very different conditions, and therefore was the Hotel Juares pure luxury for us ha ha ha! It is centrally located, cheap, comfortable rooms, very nice decoration with the little fountain in the hallway and sweet staff. We traveled in Mexico for 2 months in 2006 (there were no option older then "2011" when I had to choose a date!?), and everywhere we were welcomed by great nice and helpful people! We fell in love with this wonderful country and its culture!

The rooms are clean and comfortable aside from the flat pillows. Staff is most gracious and helpful. There was extremely loud music across the ally a couple years ago but not anymore. Hotel is conveniently located to everything, price is under $20 for a double bed, private baths are nice and there is a phone and cable tv. The hotel is very safe and the best bargain in Mexico City! Ruck in Orlando.

Hotel Juarez is a hotel that's a little off of the beaten path, but close enough to hop back into the action. It's located in an L-shaped alley off of 5 de Mayo. The bed was pretty comfortable, but to me the pillows were a bit thin. Overall, it's a very affordable hotel, $200 pesos (or more) per night, and it's located right in the center of the city.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2010

We stayed at Hotel Juarez January 29-February 3, 2010. The location is perfect - on a quiet side street in very close proximity to the Centro Historico and Zocalo. It is also close to two metro stops, good restaurants and conveniences. We paid 200 pesos a night (about $15 US). For the price, it can't be beat. The hotel is an older historic building on a side street. It has an small fountain in a little courtyard. The rooms were basic but clean. Our first room was an outside unit with a floor to ceiling door/window which was charming and allowed for great views and ventilation. Our second room was an interior room with no window but room enough for two people, especially given that we spent little time in the room. The front desk staff were friendly and, with the exception of one person, very accommodating.

Here's the problem which is no fault of the hotel. Across the alley from the hotel is a private residence which proceeded to blast techno music at nightclub levels from 4am until 8am. I am not exaggerating when I say the music in the room coming from this residence was louder than I would play it in my own house or car. We wore earplugs and the music was still so loud it sounded like it was coming from our room. We went to the front desk and were informed that this has been going on for about 3 months. The hotel has called the police and written to various government agencies about the problem and nothing has been done about it. We asked to move to an interior room to escape the noise and were moved. Two nights later, from the other side of the hotel, we could still hear the music as clearly as if it was in the room next door.

Overall, the hotel is a clean and basic place to stay, close to everything and very reasonable in price and I would recommend it. However, if the hotel doesn't find a solution to its neighbors, I wouldn't recommend it, which is unfortunate since the hotel has no control over this.

I had to travel to Mexico City in late January and a friend made the reservation for me. it is simple, safe, somewhat comfortable and right there in the Historic district.
The room was OK, it did have a small window. All rooms surround a dark courtyard with an ancient fountain. it was a unique experience. There were people from all over the world staying there.
The staff were friendly and helpful but did not speak much English.
There is a vending machine in the reception area with sodas, beer, snacks and.......condoms!
However it is a not a sleazy place at all and seemed as family friendly as a low budget hotel in Mexico City's Historic district could be. I paid $27 per night.
There is NO internet available here, no irons or coffee-makers in the rooms!
There, there was a few good eating places nearby and a couple of bars, some with interesting Victorian era woodwork!

After kind of splurging in Campeche, I really wanted to be cheap in Mexico City. We read that Hotel Juarez was clean and cheap, and it's only about a block from the Mexico City Zocalo, so I thought that would be perfect. It mostly lived up to what we had read. We paid $25 for a double room. It was clean (but no mattress pads on the really old mattresses, which grossed out my wife). The TV was better than expected (I hadn't even expected one). It had a phone. It had the potential to have a little bit of charm. But we got a room with no windows, fan, or air conditioning. So it was really oppressive and a little freaky. Half the rooms in the hotel have windows, and half don't, and the lady said the window rooms were all taken. So we spent two really hot, uncomfortable nights. I think if we had been given window rooms, it would have been a semi-enjoyable place to stay, although the lack of mattress pads would still bother us. All in all, we felt like two nights in the Juarez helped us feel better about having to leave Mexico, but for a really cheap, quite clean, pretty friendly place, I could recommend it, as long as you get a window.

  • Liked — cheap. good location.
  • Disliked — hot room with no windows or ventilation.
