The location was perfect. With in walking distant to everything and behind the Teatro Metropolitan. Budget friendly, good staff and clean. The area felt safe at all time even at night. Bonus tiny Mexican restaurant around the corner simply delicious and cheap and traditional.

I stayed only 3 nights (weekend). I selected the hotel because of the location in order to be able to visit the Historic Center of Mexico city. The location is great; however the hotel has a very poor service. Breakfast is not included in the rate. WiFi is bad to none in the rooms. Cable has only Mexican channels. The... More

The hotel is located in central Mexico City, close to all the sight seeing places. Room was neat and clean and decently appointed. However, if you do not know Spanish then you are in for a hard time. I could not explain to the desk that I needed a few extra hangers for my clothes or that I needed an... More

First off I got 2 rooms and when they escorted us to the first room and I thought wow this looks crappy but as I got out the elevator the fire extinguisher on the wall glass was all on the floor not sure why. I was charged $40USD to check in early. I was taken into the 2nd room and... More

I read some bad reviews and I thought they were exaggerating. But after stayed there, I can assure you that this is a terrible hotel. Cleaning is very bad if they actually do it. The furniture needs some maintenance. Their "internet" is the slowest internet I've used, even in Cuba they got better internet. Air conditioning in the rooms does... More

As I understood from the previous reviews the hotel was renovated not long ago. Now it looks amazing, like a brand new! Huge bed, perfect shower, very clean room, good staff.I didn't really like the location, it was kind of historical center, but we didn't find anything to do within walking distance. We stayed only one night, so for a... More

We stayed here on a 5 day business trip. The hotel is basic, but clean, with a little restaurant. The hotel has 2 things going for it: - location is excellent, next to historical centre, close to lots of excellent Mexican restaurants and the Juarez station. - the staff is very friendly, aiming to please.

This hotel is very central, close to the Metro, walk into centro. The rooms are comfortable and some look like they have been recently renovated. There are two elevators and only one is working and from previous comments the other one has been out for close to a year. The restaurant should be ignored as the food was terrible and... More

The hotel is located in the heart of the city. The rates are very reasonable and the rooms are spacious.

Staying in Alameda

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
