Good location near the metro and Zocalo square. The staff were friendly. The building is an old colonial building, very charming and with special atmosphere. Though there is a relatively modern part of the hotel on the 4th floor? where I got a room. It's actually on the roof and outside of the colonial part of the building. The closest...

I used the toilet/bathroom of a room after checkout by mistake instead of the common dorm toilet which adjacent to room 316. The manager insisted I pay Pesos 280 for using a room after checkout although I did not touch their towels or soap. Most expensive bath I ever had!!

Avoid hotel if you are not willing to be spontaneous. 1) during booking, I spoke to 2 different person, and confirmed booking with reservation number. 2) 2 days before trip, I called in to reconfirm and was told they couldn't find my reservation and they had no room available. 3) email response is very slow. Almost non existent. So I...

Nice place for the price, my room was $25.00 with tax, and it came with a private bathroom. The location is great, close to the Zocalo, restaurants,shops,metro and it appeared to be a safe area. My room was on the 4th floor it was fairly quiet in the evening but did get rather cold after dark, the room had neither...

We (2 friends) stayed 4 nights in Hotel Isabel during early January 2017. I would describe it as a budget hotel but at hostel prices. Fantastic location near many historical sites. We enjoyed 2 double bedrooms with more than enough space. Shared bathroom but each room comes with a sink and fresh towels. - Clean - Elevator - Water dispensers...

I stayed as a single traveler for a long day layover. Overall I would recommend this hotel for low budget, short trip travelers. +great location +cheap rate on hotels.com. I got a private single room with shared bathroom for $10USD. This is competitive for what hostels were offering online for a bed in a shared dorm room. I booked it...

Built in 1894, a Beaux-Arts bandbox of a hotel with a fascinating lobby, friendly and helpful staff, adjoining restaurant and bar. Spent a couple weeks here. Inexpensive, with the comforting proximity of a Hampton Inn a block away at 10 times the daily rate. Also a gaggle of cops asleep in the lobby every night, for the security conscious. This...
