We spotted this place when we first got to Mexico City and fell in love with it. It's homey and simple, reasonably priced for something so close to Reforma (smack in the middle between the Zocalo and Chapultepec), and the people are super friendly. We liked it so much, we asked if we could book out all the rooms and have our wedding in their courtyard. Lucky for us, they said yes - to their first-ever hotel-wide event. Despite their lack of experience with such events, they did a fantastic job in being very accommodating and helpful. The event had a nice backyard wedding feel and everyone loved the location.
That said, we used all the hotel rooms, some of them for up to a week or so - Not all of the rooms were created equal. The rooms in Lerma are pretty nice (this is the newest part of the hotel), and some of the rooms in the La Casa wing. However, note that sound tends to echo in the La Casawing if you're on the first floor and the door to the wing from the courtyard is open. There are no elevators anywhere and a couple of the rooms are up some windy stairs. Some rooms have bathtubs (these rooms tend to be nice), but most have just showers, and some have access to a patio area. They have wireless, which sometimes isn't so great in the La Casa wing, but always worked in the courtyard. They also have computers in the reception area which are slow, but working. Breakfast is continental and light, but clean and fresh. For a little extra, you can get a full hot breakfast which are pretty good.
Overall, the place is simple (no fitness center, spa, pool, etc.) - but they do the basics right. We loved it and we recommend the place to all our visiting friends.
On another note, they'll call you a cab at any time as there is always someone at the front desk. Between us, our parents, and our friends, we went to the airport at least once a day and the hotel was nice enough to arrange everything for us. If you're unfamiliar with the city, they can send a taxi to the airport with a sign, but you have to pay for it.
