Nice place for the price, my room was $25.00 with tax, and it came with a private bathroom. The location is great, close to the Zocalo, restaurants,shops,metro and it appeared to be a safe area. My room was on the 4th floor it was fairly quiet in the evening but did get rather cold after dark, the room had neither...

We (2 friends) stayed 4 nights in Hotel Isabel during early January 2017. I would describe it as a budget hotel but at hostel prices. Fantastic location near many historical sites. We enjoyed 2 double bedrooms with more than enough space. Shared bathroom but each room comes with a sink and fresh towels. - Clean - Elevator - Water dispensers...

I stayed as a single traveler for a long day layover. Overall I would recommend this hotel for low budget, short trip travelers. +great location +cheap rate on hotels.com. I got a private single room with shared bathroom for $10USD. This is competitive for what hostels were offering online for a bed in a shared dorm room. I booked it...

it was definitely a good deal in the center of the historic district in Mexico city. Walking distance to the palace and cathedral. room itself is very spacious with two queen beds, and very clean. Although the wall is not very sound proof. and also the room given to us was at the very corner so the wifi got disconnected...

Built in 1894, a Beaux-Arts bandbox of a hotel with a fascinating lobby, friendly and helpful staff, adjoining restaurant and bar. Spent a couple weeks here. Inexpensive, with the comforting proximity of a Hampton Inn a block away at 10 times the daily rate. Also a gaggle of cops asleep in the lobby every night, for the security conscious. This...

Hi guys just returned home from a trip to Mexico City and Cuba . We stayed at the hotel Isabel. We found the place to be exactly the way it was portrayed in their write up. What you see is what you got. We stayed in rooms with their own ensuite. The rooms were very clean and well serviced. It...

I stayed at Hotel Isabel in July 2016 for two full weeks. As a solo traveler, I wanted somewhere centrally located but also affordable. I paid approx US $17 a night. Essentially, this is a step above a hostel. You will not find amenities such as wash cloths, good towels, etc but what you do get is safe, clean accommodations...

They cancelled our reservation without letting us know. We booked a reservation a couple weeks in advance, and emailed them to let them know we would be arriving super late in the night--3am to be precise. We arrive, only to learn our reservation has been cancelled, no reason given. They won't even let us use the phone or internet to...
