this was our second stay in the Maria Cristina and it was very pleasant as usual. The location is great and staff are very accommodating. Pleasant courtyard bar for relaxing. clean and comfortable rooms. zona rosa two block away and because its in the us embassy area the neighborhood is very secure.

Room Tip: any room on the courtyard is good, but upper floors best. avoid rooms on the street due to noise. we had the room with an outside sitting area on the roof of the bar that was great....it might have been no 410 or 210 or whatever...its the 10 room on the one floor that has rooms on the west side of the courtyard over the bar.

We recently stayed at this hotel and found it quite adequate in its decore and service. The rooms are dated and the restaurant is ok.
It appears to be a businessman type hotel. The rates are very reasonable for a downtown city hotel but the location is excellent for walking to Zona Rosa. It is also very close to many key sites like Chaultepec Castellanos and Park, archeological museum and museum of modern art. N
Short cab ride to Zocolo and Belas Artes.

I first stayed in this reasonably-priced hotel in the 1980's, returned in 2003, and then stayed there repeatedly on business trips in 2009-2012. It is conveniently located -- a block off Reforma, a short distance west of Insurgentes and not far from the U.S. and British embassies. It is also near a mall (with Samborns, Starbucks, Chili's, etc.) some excellent restaurants and the French Cordon Bleu cooking school restaurant. Rooms are old-fashioned but comfortable. The "deluxe" rooms cost just a little more, are sunny, quiet and look out from the back of the lovely garden. It's hard to believe one is in the center of Mexico City. The food is below average, though breakfasts are fine. (There is also a great sandwich and pastry shop just down the street (left) and fresh juice vendors near-by). The bar and outdoor garden are very pleasant. and the hotel, with its rose-colored walls, Mexican tiles, gardens and leather chairs makes you know you are in Mexico. Very unlike the ubiquitous chain hotels.

Room Tip: The "deluxe" rooms cost just a little more, are sunny, quiet and look out on the lovely garden, far from the traffic. Book on internet for extra savings.

I didn't plan for María Cristina Hotel and the hotel was booked by an friend from the US that said it was nice. The hotel is well located in a buisness area, very awake during the day but rather dark and dull by night (or early night). The hotel is close to a strip with want to be upscale restaurants on Rio Lerma and two blocks away from a massive mall called "Reforma 222", its also very close to the U.S. Embassy... The lobby and facade of the building are pretty and quite nice, unfortunately the rooms while functional, are rather dark, small, not very well equiped, oldish and lack wifi connection unless you pay a very high fee for each device you want to connect, which means having your iphone connected costs 80 mexican pesos the day, an iphone and a laptop costs 160 pesos the day - if you need to "connect" online you'd be better off going to another hotel. An extra feature was the fact that when emptying the tub after a bath, the bathroom suddenly flooded and days after the toilet got clogged just for flushing toilet paper. Breakfast is not included and is not really worth it, and service at the front desk is OK for buisness info but bad for giving travel tips...People at the front desk are not necessarily friendly...

Room Tip: Try to ask for a quiet room, I got one close to a club and it got noisy by night.

My husband had stayed here before and described it as a time capsule. I had my doubts, because my tolerance for funk-factor is lower than his, but I enjoyed our stay (12 days). We stayed in one of the older rooms overlooking the courtyard. It was small but clean and the bed was nice and firm. The food in the restaurant was OK if not great, but reasonably priced. The staff was friendly, and it was easy to organize day trips with the taxistas outside.

Mexico City is a very stimulating place, and it was nice to have a quiet relaxing place to retreat to at the end of the day.
