We made our reservations with plenty of time but at the end we have to make some changes and it was not a problem with the hotel. Also we ask if they can hold us a piece of our luggage and they were really nice and careful with that.The price was very reasonable and the location was perfect; the people and the hotel are nice but the smell of tobacco on the room was terrible.

We stayed here for several days with friends, and it came highly recommended. The accommodation is good value (we stayed in a superior room, for very little extra cash this is a good upgrade), the reception staff are very helpful and the restaurant attached represents good value for money. It is in the centre of Mexico City in a nice area (British Embassy is just a few blocks away). We would recommend it to anyone, whether on a romantic break, business trip or going in a group.

The Maria Cristina has been around for a while, but the renovations keep it from showing its age. The rooms are adequate and the restaurant is as well. What makes it special is their large lawn with garden tables with food and drink service. It's a very comfortable hotel, very reasonably priced, and I'm glad we returned. My only criticism was a charge (although small) for internet.

And, the bar and restaurant scene on Rio Lerma (far enough away to keep the hotel area quiet and near enough to walk to at any time of day) is really hopping. This will be one of the reasonably priced "hot spots" within a year.

Room Tip: For most of the year you needn't worry about paying extra for an airconditioned room. You reall...

We were visiting Mexico City for a couple days and one of our local friends recommended this fine hotel. This property is well maintained with a sparkling lobby, clean rooms, and good service. We had a very comfortable stay and the price is right. Highly recommended !

This hotel was recommended by a friend and it was very pleasant to stay here. The rooms were spacious and clean (including a HUGE bathtub!) and the staff was pleasant and helpful. The lobby area is nice for meeting friends, and the bar and restaurant were nice as well.
I would stay here again - great value for price.

Room Tip: be sure you find out bathroom options - some only have showers, some have large jacuzzi style tubs...

I've stayed here several times over the past 35 years, and the Maria Cristina changes very little. This was my first trip back in 14 years. The place is still quaint, quiet, clean and safe - the rooms and beds comfy; the grounds are still beautiful, the staff still efficient and pleasant, the courtyard bar and the restaraunt still a pleasure. Plus the hotel's location - in a central part of town - is still, after all these years, quiet, safe and nice. Of course, the place is not fancy and it has its glitches, but they are not difficult to live with. My only real complaint is that the window coverings in our room were sheer and let in way too much light in the mornings: not good if you're trying to sleep in.

We stayed here for a week--very comfortably. As other reviewers, we found our room clean and comfortable, we looked out on the front patio. The staff was always helpful. The restaurant serves a great Azteca Soup--and my husband would want to recommend the huevos a la mexicana. The location was perfect for us. It is on the edge of the Zona Rosa and a block from beautiful Avenida Reforma and a large upscale mall. We were able to walk back from Alameda Park, as well as from Chapultepec Park.
