We thoroughly checked out budget hotels in the Zona Romantica and nearby. Many other reviews were dated or inaccurate so it was worth it. The Azteca at 350 pesos ($27) for a couple is certainly one of the top choices. Rooms are basic but clean, there's a great mirador to hang out on or do yoga, wireless internet in the rooms, nice common area/verandas and helpful staff who genuinely appreciate your business. The neighborhood is fantastic if you want to try local food, with the South Side's best taco stands, comida corrida (fixed price meal) places and killer grilled chicken places all within a few blocks.
Also recommended is the even cheaper Ana Liz (300 pesos) just down the street. Place to avoid include the Hotel Villa del Mar unless don't mind being able to hear every conversation and sound in every room and also the Hotel Rio on Morelos (major traffic noise, musty/moldy smell in many rooms and an unusable ice cold swimming pool).
This is a great neighborhood and we would definitely stay at this hotel again. The few rooms with kitchen were booked but would clearly be a great choice for a longer-term stay.
