“Safe, friendly service, amazing breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

We stayed here for a week while working on a project. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I inquired about a gym, and one of the staff members ran to the gym to get a brochure and delivered it to my room, without me even asking him to! The beds were also comfortable.

The best part was the breakfast-- chiliqiles (tortillas soaked in chili water-- SO GOOD!), eggs, beans, different Mexican dishes with potatoes and ham, coffee, and pancakes (at least on the weekends!)

The neighborhood is actually also pretty cool-- a quick walk to Roma Norte, which is quite cool!, and only a 2 blocks from Reforma. There are also several little restaurants within a few block radius. I was traveling with 2 other girls and only I spoke Spanish-- we never felt unsafe!

The ONLY thing I would say is that the towels were quite old and kind of rough, but at least they were clean!

Room Tip: We stayed in 304, then moved to 410-- 304 was MUCH quieter-- so whatever side of the building that i...

Very professional, friendly service all-around.....good quality Mexican breakfast buffet....excellent location....rooms are clean and adequate...if you feel the need to spend approximately double the price at a different hotel for a slightly fancier room, then this is not the place for you.....great value and we'll surely return on our next time through Mexico City!

Room Tip: The rooms on the back of the building and/or higher floors are probably worth requesting.

I used this friendly, clean, well located, safe hotel as my base in Mexico City and it felt like home. All of the staff were fabulous from those at the desk, in the taxis, in the restaurant and cleaning the rooms. They helped with everything without a problem. The breakfasts were perfect with a great variety of foods even to suit my vegetarian fussy eating daughter! The are is safe and has everything you need. We wandered around all night and day without problems. The only problem we had was that the wifi was weaker on some levels. It is a business hotel so basic but more than enough for our needs. I'll be back that's for sure.

Clean, good location, great price, staff were extremely polite, welcoming and willing to help. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Receptionist spoke excellent English and when asked to book a taxi back to the airport at the end of our trip, it was easy and very affordable!

The best thing in the hotel is the service (thank you Carlos !!!).
The restaurant is very good for breakfast and you can take dinner also.
The location is a few minutes from Metro. Very quiet neighborhood and safe. Take a walk in La Reforma near by.
The rooms are not the best but good. They are more like a good motel in the US.
If you need a taxi to the airport, ask it from the hotel, it's cheaper.
If you don't need hotel in the city center, so it's definitely the best choice!

Room Tip: Ask for a king room

The hotel´s restaurant was unimpressive. The breakfast was rather bad. The rooms were small, especially the bathroom, but they were comfortable. There was neither cooling device nor heating device.

The cleanliness was really good, and the staff was friendly. The location is really good. Although the hotel is in one of the best streets of Mexico´s Zona Rosa, it is far enough from the noise to provide you with a good sleep. It is right next to a private hospital, so you will hear some ambulance noise from time to time. Close by are many places to eat and to buy any supplies you might need like water.

The hotel is small and basic. The bed is a bit soft and the TV isn´t flat screen, but the price and location are pretty good.

Room Tip: Don{t even bother with the free breakfast. Walk around and have something the locals prefer.

I liked this hotel. It was walking distance away from some interesting sites to see in Mexico City and the hotel staff where so friendly. With all the tips we got from the very informed receptionist who spoke very good English we could really see the best of the city in the little time we spent there. The only problem we had was with the room as we booked a triple room yet since this was unavailable in the hotel, they wanted to seperate us into 2 rooms or asked if we wanted to take a room with a super king sized bed. Since we were 3 friends and didn't want to split we ended up choosing the second option. Which wasn't too bad as bed was very big.
