Fot two times we've booked our stay here. It's always a surprise where you"ll be sleeping. It's very traditional and everybody is always willing to help you. In the middle of the old part of town, food, drinks, musea everthing is nearby. Hope to go there again end of this year. Viva Mexico !!

We are full time overlanders. We had left our camper in Teotihuacan and took the bus to DF. We knew that this hotel was economical so we did not expect luxury and it had a certain charm. Returning from site seeing my husband got stuck in the elevator! No light, no alarm, intense heat and smoke was coming out of... More

We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel. It was very nice. The hotel is at a few minutes from the Zocalo. It's not luxuous but very typical and cheap. Rooms are clean. The restaurant serves very nice breakfast (not included in the price). The hotel has a taxi service with a very cool driver !

Stayed here twice, in January for 4 nights and March for one night. The staff on the first visit were arrogant and rude. Luckily the lady on night duty on the second visit was delightful. Hopefully she has replaced "grumpy". The hotel is close to the historic centre and is okay value. The rooms are large enough and clean and... More

This hotel is in a great part of the Zocalo section of Mexico City. It's really easy to walk to lots of the main tourist attractions and the subway. For a hotel that was incredibly inexpensive, I thought it was pretty great. Sure, the wifi went in and out a tiny bit (but worked 90% of the time), the walls... More

Great location in El Centro near Metro, Zocolo, etc. Building and furnishings are old and a bit tired but everything was clean as a whistle. Restaurant serves a decent breakfast and there is a nice little bar off of the lobby. Great budget choice.

The hotel had no record of our reservation, but that wasn't a problem. The guy on reception was uninterested, slow and distracted on his phone. The room itself has creaking floorboards that need screwing down to fix. Creaking bedframe and headboard. Threadbare linen and mattresses that have seen better days that are too small for the frames and expose the... More

I had 3 night stay in hotel Isabel. The location is just great - the center of old historic part of the city. For $17.00 per night I had very big room with the window. The view of horrible ruins from my window (almost as London during WWII ) did not scare me, because I was only sleeping in. Just... More

You get what you pay for. Pros: great location few blocks from Zocalo. Great view from windows. Friendly staff. Cons: shabby, uncomfortable. Almost non-existent wi-fi, tattered old sheets and towels, sagging bed, terrible shower. For that price, may as well get a really good hostel.

The staff were very friendly, breakfast was amazing and loved the free wifi aswel. Elevator was just a little small we had to make two trips down to the floor to collect our luggage. I love... More

Staying in Centro Historico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Historico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.
