We were recommended this hotel by a travel agent who said that it was strategically placed and a safe starting place for our trip. Let's just say that we arrived at night starving and so we ventured out in this allegedly well-lit and populated area....More
The rooms are small but clean and a bit worn. My window faced a wall, which was probably good in that it limited noise. Many reviewers reported that the staff is unfriendly. Not my experience, but indifferent certainly. If you need to save $ it...More
Stayed one week in this hotel. Reception staff has no interest whatsoever in catering to the guest. In fact, they seem annoyed if you approach the reception desk. Room cleaning needs much improvement vis-a-vis promptness. Twice we had to wait at 4 pm for the...More
We stayed at the Marlowe in 2009 and it was great; this time it was also very good. The location is superb, the staff always helpful and the rooms clean, comfortable and quiet.Highly recommended. And yes, the shower was fabulous- it even had a good...More
The hotel is located centrally, near Almeda Central, Mexico City's historic center with Zocalo, and the modern area of Reforma. The rest of the city is easily accessible via Metro (Hidalgo is one of the convenient stations). The hotel was fine, the room clean and...More
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may
be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.

Well the metro area of Mexico City is so big that there is no central bus terminal. If you are arriving from the north you'll arrive at the North Bus Terminal. There are also East, South, and West terminals. The Marlowe is in the central area and probably equidistant from any of the terminals. From any of the terminals you should be able to take the subway (called the Metro) and go to either the Hidalgo or Bellas Artes stations. Metrobus is also very efficient and if you take that you can get out get out at their stops with the same names. Metrobus is above ground and the Metro is below ground. The stops are adjacent to the Alameda park. Once you are in the park cross the south side street called Juarez. The Marlowe is just one block south of Juarez, on Independencia Avenue. Enjoy! Once you get the feel for the city's transport system you'll do well and can easily get around to almost any place you want.
