Pros: The marbled upgrades can be seen all over the guest rooms and the bathroom. Clean, well kept. Close to Zocalo, an easy 15-20 min walk. Just a couple of minutes walk from the Jose Maria Pino Saurez metro. Eateries, shoe shops, fashion outlets, 7-elevens, Oxxos within walking distance. Right behind the Pino Saurez metro is a kind of $...

Dear guest, thank you for choosing us for your Mexico City stay, we are glad you enjoyed the location, and it is because we are super close to Zocalo, Supreme court and Palacio Nacional, that the streets are very well guarded. Hope to see you return, María.

Great budget hotel but with recently remodeled rooms very close to metro (2.5 blocks) Zocalo (4 blocks). Streets at night a bit edgy for some but had a cop on every corner so never any problems. I felt totally safe (always with precautions of course in any area) Stayed single in room with King bed, great bathroom, boiling hot water...

This place is nice and clean. We stayed four nights for our first trip to Mexico. It's close to the metro and right in the heart of Mexico City. We managed to get around all of Mexico City from this convenient spot.

The hotel is perfectly located just 10-15 mins walk from Zocalo and main historical sites. Metro station is just around the corner, which is worth using instead of busses or taxis that get stuck in heavy traffic. The hotel was recently renovated, rooms are very clean, spacious, new bathrooms, no airconditon tho, but I didn't need it in January at...

Comfortable (a bit squishy) beds, excellent water pressure, very well-appointed rooms. Cheap room service with adequate food, bottled water, secure, excellent location. I imagined a flophouse for $25 in the historic center, but it turns out $25 can get you quite a lot in CDMX. I later stayed at a very upmarket place elsewhere in the city for five times...

It is hard to beat this deal for value near the Zocalo. The place is clean and basic. Not the most comfortable bed-pillow combination I have had. The area is busy during the day, much quieter at night, reminiscent of city downtowns. It is well-located for visiting many of the main tourist attractions. That said -- decide if you would...

We stayed here with a group of people from around Latin America. This hotel is in a good location, easy for walking around the historic area and it is clean and comfortable. We did have a few early starts to our day, so the restaurant not being open until 8:30am was a bit of a challenge.

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.
