For the past two years, I've had the opportunity to stay at the El Greco hotel in Mexico City with a group of fellow travelers. The rooms are clean and well kept. The staff is most friendly and helpful, even when we are speaking two different languages. It's a good place to stay.

I ended in this hotel because others near to my meetings were already full. I booked a room with a double bed. I was given two single beds (1+1=2). The beds were hard. Two days I woke up as if having slept on a park bench. The guys at the reception desk were rude, unwilling to help. The room had...

I arrived at Hotel El Greco on a very rainy Sunday morning at 08:00 hrs dripping wet and asked if I could please check in early, even though official check in time is 13:00hrs. No problem and in a matter of minutes I was escorted to my upgraded room, handed extra towels and jumped into a clean hot shower. This...

I have stayed at Hotel El Greco 3 times over the past few years. I like it because the people are friendly, the cost is reasonable (680 pesos in June 2013), and I feel like my belongings and I are very safe there. The hotel has one slow elevator and a nearly-spiral staircase. The elevator is worth waiting for because...

I have stayed at this hotel many times. The rooms are nice: big, clean, with simple decorations. A double has two big beds, cable TV, a desk, a couple of chairs and a table. There is no AC, though I never felt I needed it. The staff is very friendly. There is room service every day. It's in a nice...

My wife and I stayed at Hotel El Greco during our most recent visit to Mexico City. This hotel is everything that a 2.5 star hotel should be. It is conveniently located at Eje 5, right in between Coyoacan and La Condesa and not too far from El Zocalo. You can walk to restaurants, movie theaters, and shops. The rooms...

We stayed at the Hotel El Greco in June 2007 and were surprised how clean the rooms were, the beds were comfortable, the linen was changed every day and the staff were very friendly. However, hardly any english is spoken here. We paid 54.00 CDN for a large room with 2 beds, sitting area with table and chairs, a big...

When travelling I don't plan to spend much time in my hotel room. But the time I spend there has to be restful and meet my needs. Plain and simple with a few amenities is enough. However, for a hotel in its price range, the El Greco offers more. It may have some years on it, but as I understand...

This hotel is a good choice if you are looking for simple and inexpensive accomodations. Is is a few block south of the World Trade Center and one block from the central avenue of Insurgentes- a relative safe location. This old hotel, with it's single 4-people elevator resembles a Motel-6.
