Located in front of the Independent Plaza, this hotel has a very old Spanish era atmosphere. Difficult to describe, but if you see architecture and interior from Antonio Banderas' Zorro movie, then you'll get the picture.
Everything in this hotel is old, and not everything work very well. You must call or complaint several times until you get what you want. However, they do have a wi-fi for free. The elevator is also a classic one. Operated by human, so there must be an operator everytime you want to go upstairs. Many times the operator is not available, so you must take the stairs.
Breakfast is quite ok, and located in upstairs. You can have a beautiful view of the plaza and all buildings surrounding the plaza. The ancient cathedral is also there, which according to history was an Aztec temple.
The location itself is perfect. Located in the heart of the Old City of Mexico, you can have many things there: book store, CD store, museums, restaurants (incl junk foods), jewellery stores, money currency changers, etc.
The area/ neighbourhood is under heavy construction when I visited there in 2009. The whole area was built on an ancient lake, or so I heard. The surface is unstable now, and many centuries old buildings were being renovated. Or completely closed. During weekends no cars allowed there, to reduce the risk.
If you're only looking for a place to sleep and keep your luggage, then this is the place. But if you want to spend your visit inside the hotel, I wouldn't suggest this hotel.
