My wife and I stayed here November 2-6 and 9-11, 2011. We will stay here again.
As others have written, this hotel is beautiful, the staff is friendly and helpful, and it is centrally located. We learned that the building started out as part of a convent, then became a hat factory, then a hotel, and was abandoned after the 1985 earthquake. It has been a Hampton for three years.
I remember when the Centro Histórico was a scary, abandoned, place after dark. But in recent years it has been rehabbed and there's lot of stuff happening in the evening. For example, after we arrived in Mexico City my wife and I checked in at 10:30 pm, and we were hungry. So we walked the four blocks to the Café El Popular on Cinco de Mayo. There were a lot of people out and we felt safe. Of course, we exercised ordinary caution.
The free breakfast was nice, and it was identical to the free breakfasts that Hampton offers in the US. You may think that's good or bad. Be sure to try the restaurant Los Garabatos inside the hotel. We didn't try Fisher's restaurant, which is also inside the hotel.
(1) We reserved a queen room (#320) for our first stay, and a king (#421) for our second. Stick with the king. The difference in space is notable.
(2) Light sleepers, like me, take note. Ask for a room away from the corner of Cinco de Febrero and República de Uruguay. There is a night club at that corner and it sounds like a fun place, if you happen to be a patron if it. If you are trying to sleep at the Hampton, it's not much fun. Our room the first night was at that corner, but the staff nicely moved us at my request to room #320. However, both of our rooms were at the end of a corridor next to noisy soft drink and ice machines. The staff nicely turned them off at night at my request.
