This seems to be the best value place in Mexico City, but do not come here if you are expecting international hotel standards. This is a place for the budget conscious traveller who also wants good security.
The building itself is a bit of a freak-out if you're not used to budget travelling in developing countries. It's tucked away in a back street and it takes a bit of getting used to. You'll get to know the security guy downstairs, who will always accompany you in the lift and is there to let you into the building (there is no external key). This is good news for security, as the security man knows everyone staying there.
The suite we had consisted of four rooms - kitchen, bathroom,dining/loungeroom and bedroom. These are spartan, and the kitchen functions at a threadbare level, but they do the job. The staff are extremely helpful and always try to sort out any questions you have about the local area.
As I say, don't expect a high quality of rooms and furnishings, but if budget and security is important to you, this may be your place.
