Centro Histórico
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. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.

Lots of character of a typical spanish hotel. My room was big and comfortable, but had to ask to change as it overlooked the road and was noisy. Change to a middle room for the rest of my stay. Located in the centre of the old city, it was easy to walk to most places. Lots of

This is a classic, old-school Mexico City hotel. Don't expect modern amenities. But the location is great and the bigger rooms are fantastic. The staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurant gets a pass but the bar is super fun and friendly.

After staying at Isabel for two days we started to look for a better option but could not really find an immediate better one. This place has rooms for 500 pesos. And has some options available most if the time. The building is from the 1700s, painted damn ugly on the inside,

Hotel Isabel. a historical building with nice common middle area, the fixtures are old but good. Location & cost are big advantages. About noise, it does not affect me as I use @tferriss recommended, "Mack's pillow soft silicone ear putty for all". There is a night club whose

First of all this place is incredibly EXPENSIVE for its quality. I can feel the spring from the bed when I sleep. Bathroom is NOT presentable. They start to clean at 5pm, so if you come back to rest early or sth, you will see uncleaned room or you need to leave in the middle

We had a room in the front and there was some night noise, however, it really wasn't bad. I would suggest asking for a room toward the back. We loved the central location and ease of getting around.

Is there a shuttle from the airport or do you recommend the metro, collectivo, taxi?
There are two terminals in Mexico City. If you arrive at T1, the metro is a short 100 meter walk out the front door of the terminal. If you don't have much baggage, this is always my choice particularly if I arrive during the day. The metro is clean, safe, and easy to use, but it can be crowded. If you arrive at T2, as I usually do, catch a red shuttle bus destined for T1. It's easy to find just outside the terminal to the right. Tell the driver you want the metro stop. It's halfway between the two terminals, less than a mile away. You could walk, but for 5 pesos, it's worth taking. The bus will drop you right off and it's a simple one change trip to get to Isabel la Catolica station. Once there, it's a short 3-4 blocks to the hotel. However, if you have a lot if baggage or arrive at night, take an airport taxi. You will find a taxi stand just as you exit the terminal where you can buy a ticket. All the stands are priced the same, about $15, to get to the Centro Historico.
