I arrived at Hotel El Greco on a very rainy Sunday morning at 08:00 hrs dripping wet and asked if I could please check in early, even though official check in time is 13:00hrs. No problem and in a matter of minutes I was escorted to my upgraded room, handed extra towels and jumped into a clean hot shower.
This is a business hotel, no pool but free Wifi that works well and clean rooms. What is most impressive is the staff who scolded me for coming down to the front desk when I could call for an iron and ironing board and have it delivered, the cleaning lady that offered extra towels and the concierge who always insisted on opening the front door for me.
The architecture is interesting, the hotel is built in a triangle, you get a sense of this in the parking garage or the map on the back of your room's door. I kept wanting to staighten the bed, only to realize that the wall is on a slight angle. You will notice how the interior courtyards help keep the place cool and fresh smelling. The garage of all places, has large posters of what Mexico looked like before the turn of the last century and various earthquakes.
Overall a great place to stay if you are needing to be in the south end of Insurgentes, near the World Trade Center. It is a block from the Metrobus Linea 1 (Colonia del Valle stop) and about a 10 minute walk from the Metro (Eugenia or Insurgentes stop). Great value and service for the price!
