This hotel is centrally located in Mexico City very close to the cathedral & metro. It has a lovely old world atmosphere - with a welcoming drink and fresh cloth on arrival and a nice touch of offering fresh apples at reception and at the end of your floor each day. The hotel has very friendly support staff particularly Hannah... More

The Zocalo Central is an excellent hotel. One could not ask for a better location, situated as close to the center of Mexico City as you can get. There are plenty of great restaurants, taquerias, and cantinas within a quick walk. The staff were professional, friendly, and extremely helpful. The rooftop restaurant affords great food and a wonderful view. Highly... More

I visited the Palacio Bellas Artes on my way to the Zocalo. Don't forget to tour it and see the Diego Rivera murals. The Palacio is where the famed Folklorico Ballet performs.
