Hotel Catedral's self description as "luxury" is somewhat ambitious, but if you get beyond that, this is a lovely little hotel in a fantastic location, right round the corner from the Zocalo. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable (although sadly lacking in safeboxes and hot drink-making facilities), and the complementary wifi is reliable. They ran out of single rooms, so I got upgraded to a nice double on the top floor (number 707), overlooking the roof terrace - it could get a little noisy with people sitting out there, but it was worth it for the view. I didn't try the breakfast, but the restaurant was rather disappointing when dinner there the first night. Plenty of great options in the vicinity, so no need to eat there anyway. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. Overall, very highly recommended.

Just a block off the Zocalo in the old historic city center. Great service from all the staff. Excellent breakfasts also. Rooms were very clean and well maintained. I'd have no reservations about going back or referring anyone.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a better view, but be prepared for street noise.

Great value, great location right behind the cathedral and the Zocalo. A good experience on our first trip to this very intense and exciting City. There were no downsides to our stay here and the location really is unbeatable. The traffic seems to be almost always gridlocked so the ability to stroll out of the hotel door and be in the centre of the city with all it's sights within walking distance was a boon.

We recently had a great stay at the Hotel Catedral. They are remodeling the rooms floor by floor and prices have gone up somewhat, but it was still a bargain for our family of four at 1035 pesos. Ask for a room on floor four or above for nice city views. The nightclub on Donceles is noisy, but we were happy to put up with it in return for a balcony. The rooms were comfortable and the agua purificada tap in the bathroom is great.

We did not use the buffet breakfast in the hotel because we preferred to eat out, but it looked good. We did eat breakfast in the restaurant once and I have to say it was one of the worst meals we had in Mexico. The staff at the hotel were helpful and most spoke reasonably good English. We always felt safe returning home at night. The location is perfect being a block away from the zocalo. There is a 7-11 at the corner for cerveza and tons of great restaurants on 5 de Mayo and Madero. My kids loved the cookies and candy in the lobby. We will stay here again when we are in Mexico City.
