Although the entrance to the hotel is not at all impressive, once you climb the stairs to the fabulous lobby, you can marvel at the balconied interior with its stunning stained glass roof. It must have one of the most attractive interiors of any hotel anywhere. The views over the main square to the Cathedral from the roof top restaurant are stunning. On its own this was worth the money. Our room was spacious, good value and the Wifi works well.
Downside,both breakfasts we had were lukewarm, the air conditioning made the hotel feel cold and I was not impressed by the barman pointingly making me add a tip to the bill. Without exception I always leave a tip but I resent being forced.to do it.
The rest of the staff were very pleasant and helpful.
If you have never been to Mexico City before, this Hotel is in a great position and I would recommend you stay here.
