“Superb hotel in Mexico City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

I travel all around the world with work - and I genuinely love this hotel (I have never rated anywhere before, but this place is so good I had to!).

The interior is stunning and view from the rooftop terrace, across the Zocalo, is unbeatable. Staff are very friendly (especially Daniel in reservations, Cinthia and Roberto in reception) and the restaurant is great. Breakfast is quite something!

Overall, it is a wonderful place to stay; full of character, in a perfect location, and with great facilities. I cannot recommend it enough.

“Beautiful, but needs imporvements in rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

I liked especially to be inside a treasure in the heart of the city, near Zocalo, the main square. Pity that the area in the city is not the best for the night, but is near of many places of vistation and beautiful restaurants. The rooms, very classy, but at the same time old fashioned, needing new curtains and bed clothes, but with very good space, good bathroom, and a delicate service with details like the coffee maker with coffee every day to be done by the passengers. The breakfast is not special, I recomend to take brakfast in another place.

“Hotel in the heart of the City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2012

this is the best hotel if you want to be just in the center of the city, besides "El Zocalo" and in front of Palacio Nacional and Cathedral and 500 meters from "TEMPLO MAYOR". If you mena interest is to visit the Historicla Center of Mexico this is the best palce to stay.

This is and ancient building remodelled 5 (more and less) years ago. It is beautiful but you will not find the installations of a great Hotel (Spa, a great Gym, many restaurants, etc.) but this hotel is not very expensive (medium price).

If you do not want to stay just in the middle of the city madeness, I recommend you go on Sundays and take the luch-buffet or at night to have a drink in the terrace and see the center at night (overall in September and December).

“Surprise!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2012

Surprised because when you get in and turn your head to see the ceiling you discover a stained-glass window so beautiful that you can stop see in it, also in the lobby is the original elevator. The restaurant on the top has a great view to the main square (zocalo)
