“Great location and good rooms”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

This hotel is very close to both the MetroBus and the Metro (subway), Hidalgo station, making it a great place for exploring the City. The area around the hotel is quite safe, even at night. The staff are helpful and pleasant and the rooms are large with comfortable but firm beds. A good shower with plenty of hot water. There is appreciable noise on rooms facing the Paseo de la Reforma but I was able to sleep fine. I noticed that some rooms on my floor were being renovated and perhaps they are installing better sound insulating windows. Worth checking on. But we got the room for only $60 per night and that included the breakfast buffet, which is great with omelets made to order and a good selection of hot and cold food. Buffet staff were especially attentive and pleasant. Although some reviewers say that the wired internet did not work, it worked fine for us. No issues at all. Although it is not a luxury hotel, I would recommend it for the price and service.

Room Tip: If you are noise sensitive, ask for a renovated room or away from Paseo de la Reforma.

It really is a good deal and the rooms aren't that bad. They are clean, spacious. However, the beds are extremely uncomfortable. The Jacuzzi in the solarium is not heated. I asked the bartender upstairs about it and he told me it was a jacuzzi for penguins, that they never heated it. The had a nice little workout facility. Free breakfast. The staff was very helpful. It's in a good neighborhood. Go to Armando's Tortas for a torta. Muy rica. They will NOT let you check in before 3, so don't ask. I would return if traveling on a budget.

This hotel is great... close to the center of the city, subway station no hand, bus station in front... and can get a cab in seconds...
My wife and I went to Mexico City for our honeymoon and stayed there for 6 days... the first impression was okay, great and humble service, the only thing we didn't like was the breakfast in the first day... afterwards we made a suggestion and the next day it was better... they do listen and make the effort to please your stay.

This place is great and I have been there a bunch of times. We love the free breakfast on the 10th floor. The service is excellent considering it is meant to be buffet. Compared to many hotels, by the time you throw in a couple of breakfasts that amount to breakfast and lunch (especially if you are a slow starter as the restaurant doesn't close till 11am) then you are getting the room for free. The only thing about this hotel is despite what it says, the internet is lousy. It is kind of ok/erratic in the restaurant on the 10th floor, the looby is poor, the wireless in the rooms is non-existent and the wired internet in the rooms does not work at all ("Very sorry Mister"). I don't know why they can't get the internet working. It is a few feet from Hidalgo Metro, a 10 minute walt to Bellas Artes along the side of a park with great fountains, 5 mins on the Metro to Zocolo for the Cathedral. You can get to the airport terminal 1 by changing Metro at La Raza (long but interesting tunnel connection) for only 3 Pesos. In the rush hour this is the only way to get to and from the airport to be honest. The red #4 airport bus also goes to the airport. But in traffic and at 30 Pesos plus 10 Pesos for the card why take a luxury bus is my thinking. No traffic noise from Reforma even on the 3rd floor. Green busses at 6 Pesos (KM13 or Auditorio) go every few minutes down Reforma to the Museum of Modern Art & Archaeological Museum. Return bus shows La Villa. Download area map from google on your phone and leave your GPS on and you will know where you are all the time. To go to the Pyramids at Teothihuacan take Metro - 3 Pesos - from Hidalgo, change change at La Raza, one stop to Northern Bus Terminal. This will take 15 mins. Then bus goes to "Piramides" every 30 mins. Around Gate #8 at far end. Cost is 40 Pesos each way. When you exit (different place from where you come in and down a long aisle with lots of shopping - don't shop as you enter) you will come out in the street. Opposite there are some great cheap restaurants. Buses go back to Mexico City every 15 minutes or less. Most go through the local town and are slower than coming out. Get off at 18 Marzo metro station to save the traffic back to the bus station. Also it saves changing at La Raza. And if you are adventurous you can save 30-45 mins by getting the bus at Potrero Metro station (east side). There are bus staff there and anyone will help you if you ask for "Piramidays". Again you won't have to change at La Raza. Don't believe anyone who says you need to spend $70 on a fancy tour. You can do it all in for $7 and go at your own pace for as long or as short as you want!

Room Tip: Might be noisy on Reforma side but we stayed on 3rd floor and it was very quiet.

I went to Mexico city for a soccer game and I decided to get a room to rest after the game, I arrived at the Hotel early about 9-10AM to try check in and guess what?...... big surprise the hotel staff was not able to find my reservation on their system, it took the staff about 3 hours to finally confirm my reservation(systems issues was the only explanation by the staff). The rooms are decent for the price but I really didn't enjoy their customer service. I will try something different next time... Good Luck!!

We were four adults who went to Mexico City for a Fey Concert, we stayed on the 5´th floor of this very good and modestly priced hotel. We found the staff very accomodating, the breakfasts, which are included in the price of the room, were always excellent. One night we took advantage of the roof top bar, we each had a good drink and admired the view. Will definetly return to this moderately priced, but centrally located hotel.

Room Tip: Book in advance because this hotel is popular with tour groups.

We were a family group that stayed from March 26th to March 31st and we were located on the 2nd floor, rooms 1216 to 1219 and the noise was really a problem in room 1219. The hotel should improve this with special windows or something else. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the staff was also very helpful. Mexico has excellent people everywhere. I was assigned room 1216 and the matresses were terrible, but I did not complain (my mistake) this is also something they need to improve. The TV sets in rooms are a joke but I don't care too much on this. The wi-fi should be in every floor but only works in the lobby and restaurant. The location of the hotel is very convenient to walk to Zocalo, Centro Historico and by bus, taxi or metro to Basilica de Guadalupe and practically everywhere. Transportation is also excellent from/to the hotel. Great stay

Room Tip: Choose high floors if you are sleep sensitive, too much noise from the street on lower floors
