We had called to make reservations a week prior to our stay and a gentleman said we were set. My family and I get to the hotel to get treated by a receptionist that was extremely rude. To make matters worst, once we arrived they advised us no reservations were ever made. Seriously?!?!? Why would my family and I go...

When I booked this hotel it was listed as a hotel, not a hostel. I had an adequate room that has been recently renovated with new furniture and good bedding, hot water on demand and a nicely redone toilet. As hard as they tried to upgrade the place it remained a bit below standard for the price I paid. Staff...

Best time, younger in the middle of the city, near to everything, Chapultepec, cathedral, casa de los azulejos... A good view from my room with balcony, the reception always with good service. The restaurant and the old furniture has an amazing atmosphere. Reading at lobby, you can get visitors. Order pizzas. Great times, not only hostel, hotel with great prices.

The prices might be cheap, specially if you do long term rent, but the rooms are the most dirty i have ever seen. Also, it is extremely loud in the neighborhood, so be prepared to sleep badly. I do not recommend this hotel, unless you cannot afford any other option (though you can get better hostels/hotels in better locations for...

Wow. What a difference 3 years make! I stayed here long-term about 3 years ago. Staff was friendly and smiley, housekeeping actually cleaned every day (albeit the Mexican way), and the overall ambience quite different as the ambience was created by an eclectic group of long-termers from various parts. Now, you get Ms. Miserable at the front desk during the...

We did stay there two nights, but after the first one we started looking for some other options. Hotel/hostel is located near big street, noise in the night is really disturbing, even on the 6th floor where we were located. Hotel/hostel is old, and you can feel that the bed sheets and carpet "have long history". There is old, human-operated...

Staying in Centro Historico

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro Historico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays.

“If you're staying in the dorms (female), you might be given #112 which smells horrible and you can't really open the window, but it has new beds and a tv. #113 has old beds, but minimal smell. Probably due to the missing window which nobody has bothered to repair. But if you ask for this room, you'll probably get it to yourself as I did. Although certainly not worth 180pesos.”
