I am going to relate the facts and let the reader make his or her own decision. 1) They gave me room 111 on first floor. Wifi barely worked - not enough to make internet based phone calls required for a legal case I was involved in. Alfredo, who did his best, could not get the room's wifi router working...

This hotel is in a great location just a 15 minutes walk to the Zocalo. It's right on the main open park in downtown and the metro is literally at the door. The hotel itself is in a wonderful historic building and maintains its colonial charm. The beds and rooms are very comfortable. The staff were very helpful through out...

This could easily have been a 5-star review, there's more to like than not. Nice and helpful staff, historic building, and comfortable appointments... I didn't use the restaurant or rooftop bar. Here are the issues that kept it from being 5-star: >Internet - did not work in my room, and even outside right next to the office it fluctuates. I...

Not sure how this rates as even 3 stars! We chose this hotel because of its location and "boutique" status. Turns out neither were what we would have expected! The air quality in the room was the poorest I have ever personally experienced which necessitated having to call a maintenance person to open the window. Which was worse? the noise...

Needs a lot of TLC - most of the staff are lovely and the hotel layout is lovely but the restaurant and rooms leave a lot to be desired. Food uninspiring. Decor and sanitation needs upgrading! Also it is NOT close to the historic centre as promoted - 20 mins on foot

This is not a hotel, it is a place they rent for parties and it has room. So every night of our stay there was a party with loud music until midnight and noise until 2 am. Rooms are very nice but unless you rent the all place for your party forget it you will live a nightmare! We left...

I stayed in Mexico City the week of thanksgiving. I really enjoy staying in the historical center. This hotel has a good location, it is located across the Alameda. By crossing the street and walking a few seconds, you pass by Bellas Artes and will find yourself on the busy Madero street. Just about every day we would be walking...

Stayed here on our first trip, expected a 5 star rating as led to believe by another review system and sadly disappointed. There was grime and hair on the leather headboard which was hidden by pillows. Yuck. The shower did not have the wooden grates put down to shower my husband had to put them in place. The coffee pot...

We arrived about 9pm and the taxi driver told us the hotel backs onto a very unsalubrious area! Of course we were very apprehensive and wished we hadn't chosen it. However it was lovely, very friendly staff, spacious rooms and a very pretty courtyard where they served an excellent breakfast. Massive rooftop terrace with a bar and great city views......

I'm sure it was nice 15 years ago. It had a lot of high end things done to it a long time ago. Unfortunately no one has done maintenance on it for at least 10 years. First trip to Mexico and I thought everyone lived with pealing paint, black mildew all over the walls, buckling wood floors, overpriced drinking water,...

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.

  • The shower. The lone redeeming attribute of the room.
