If you are looking for luxury - don't come here! But if you are looking for value for money - do!!
Let's start with the annoying and work our way up:
We arrived late on a Saturday night - it was Gay Pride and being on the edges of Zona Rosa the hotel was popular and full. The room we had booked, we were informed was not available. Yes, they had our booking of a double room with two double beds, but they had let it to someone else. They were prepared to give us a room with one kingsize bed which cost more, for no extra cost, and would move us the next day, or if we wanted we could go and look for a room elsewhere. It was 11 pm and we were not impressed - we had no option but to accept.
The next day they told us we had to wait until people checked out to see what might be available to us; eventually we were given a room. We repacked, moved and unpacked. The key card did not work. After several attempts by the manager we were told we had to move again. Again we repacked, moved and unpacked, during which the lift doors closed on my forearms causing considerable bruising. Thankfully we did not have to move again.
Another downside was the fact that the toilets seem to leak, clean water not anything else, but it is still quite annoying and it appears to be all of them.
The positives are that for approximately £10 per person per night you can stay in a hotel, in a really good location (right next to Monument de la Revolution and 5 mins direct walk from the metro) that is safe and extremely clean and you can have a hot shower at any time of day or night. The towels (2 per person) and sheets are changed daily and they give you a bottle of mineral water every day per person. Also the beds are extremely comfortable.
It can be a little noisy sometimes and the food is pretty average, bordering on disappointing here, however, Artur who does the breakfast shift, is very attentive and very helpful - drawing directions for the metro etc so he compensates a little.
There is a very small plunge pool on the roof accompanied by 3 sunbeds, a welcome little oasis from the smoggy city, but I'm insure how it would cope with double figures of guests.
All in all, it is really a no frills, business hotel, basic and practical. That said: it is really clean and the only place I stayed all over Mexico that provided mineral water every day for each guest.
For all its annoyances, it still leaves you smiling. For that reason we returned at the end of our trip too, because at the end of the day, it is a jolly good, value for money all rounder.
