Stayed four nights. Good location near Alameda Park. Very disappointed as our first hotel on a tour of Mexico. Hotel needs some serious decoration and renovation. Restaurant staff not good, with no customer skills. There are better hotels at the same price. Definitely would not reccomend.

We stayed here for a couple of nights, and at that stage, not much construction was going on. (we'd been here 3 years before and construction was in full swing.) The rooms had been recently refurbished, nicely done and well-finished. Our room was on the second floor overlooking the street, but there was little noise at all. The room was... More

I chose the hotel based on the name and the location. Unfortunately, the experience was very negative. Upon arrival, I had a meeting in the coffee shop on the ground floor and it took ages to be served coffee. The waiter mentioned that the coffee making machine was on the 10th floor, and that's why it was taking them so... More

Having stayed at a number of Howard Johnson resorts in the US on tour, I took reassurance in the name and booked for myself a couple of clients to stay here whilst in Mexico City on business. The prices should have been a clear warning sign, but I put my trust in the brand. We had 3 double rooms booked.... More

Great location and very accommodating staff but the Internet rarely worked in the room. They were very apologetic but didn't seem in any hurry to fix it. On top of that, the TV had no cable channels so no programs in English, which would have been fine had we had Internet and could watch shows on Netflix or whatever.

Hotel at the safe location (very close to the center). Affordable. It's close to two metro stops, a short walk to Zocalo, and close to Alameda Park. Rooms clean and lately renovated. Corridors not. Restaurant poor, it is better to eat dinner downtown. Breakfast is ok. - mexican style. Staff king and helpful. Good relation price to value. I would... More

Staying in Alameda

Neighbourhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
