If you're looking for a reasonably-priced stay in CDMX this place is great. No need to go further afield than this astoundingly well-located hotel. Decent breakfast, simple but clean rooms, and did I mention the location? We found the service to be truly great here as well; much more warm and friendly than their kinda corporate image would suggest.

Hotel's Favorite
At first notice is the decor. Warm but sophisticated ambiance at every turn. beautifully displayed Mexican found objects, pieces of local craftmanship in antique curio cabinets (some available for sale), beautifully decorated room with Mexican art and ceramic accents. Lighting is dim and calming throughout all of the common areas including the gorgeous lobby atrium filled with diffused natural light. You will find the 24/7 Central Cafe in the atrium serving delish paninis free to guests. Housed on the rooftop Terrace you will enjoy outstanding views of el Zocalo and central CDMX via the Balcon del Zocalo Restaurant. It is exquisite upscale cuisine and cocktails in a warm, comfortable, relaxing environment. Also the restaurant is where you will enjoy a tasty free buffet breakfast as the sun comes up on el Zocalo. I would highly recommend this hotel. It is a bargain considering all of the amenities, it is immaculately clean, it is a gorgeous serene setting in contrast to a gritty and bustling city, ...and I would be remiss if not to mention the superlatively warm, gracious, attentive service. Top notch!

We stayed here in late November 2020 for a brief, albeit much-needed vacation in a covid-limited travel year. This is a beautiful hotel and is located right next to the Zocalo. You’re in the middle of all the action here, but note that for the time being, things die down in the centro historico after 7pm (no alcohol being served after those hours for now with covid). We weren’t allowed in a single time without a temperature check and hand sanitizer at the entrance. Hotel is lovely and the terrace restaurant is wonderful for dinner and in the morning. Room and bathroom were great as well. Easy to uber in and out of here, though it may be a little more challenging during the more crowded hours. We stayed in their sister hotel Historico Central nearby our first time in CDMX and it, too, was a wonderful stay. Highly recommend this hotel group.

This hotel was exceptional in all facets. Truly felt safe here as they followed all covid protocols (temperature checks, sanitizer, masks etc) on the entire property. The staff was beyond delightful and extremely helpful when we asked for suggestions nearby. They were always willing to help! The room, 515, was to die for! So spacious, so clean and a view for days. Highly recommend this hotel as it is walking distance to most sites and has easy Uber accessibility for those further ones. Excellent restaurants nearby. 10/10 for this hotel & it’s amazing staff.
