“Great Location”
Reviewed 2 February 2013

This hotel has a great location, especially for those who want to stay in the historic city center. Prices are not expensive and the staff is very kind, as generally throughout Mexico. People are extremely friendly in this country. The problem is that if you are a light sleeper, you will have a lot of trouble trying to sleep, because of the noise from a disco that goes late into the night. If it were not for the noise and the fact of the mattress be a little bit hard, it would be an excellent choice to stay.

It is an honor for us to have received in our hotel and know that everything was to his liking. Fortunately as mentioned our location is suitable to meet the main locations in the center of town so we invite it on your next visit to see some of which handle tour. We also handle buffet breakfast starting at 8 at 11:30 am.

Regarding the disco and we worked on it, got up a letter to the authorities in order to avoid this inconvenience to you. I respect what the mattress if sincere thank you very much for your comment and creame comment will be considered for review

Look forward to your visit soon.

Construction noise starts about 8 and continues through the evening. It is very very loud. Ear plugs will not block the noise. On check-in, the front desk staff told us the noise would not begin until after ten in the morning - not true.

Sorry to hear that your stay was not satisfactory and verify the hours you are working in building remodeling, believe that the work actually does not work that night if safe because the rest of the guests is very imporant for us and we offer an apology for the inconvenience you had and thank you very much for your sincere comment.

We hope and trust that we will soon visit in order to change this detail we had with you.

Great location to the center hub of the city with easy walking access to restaurants, historical sights, subway, and shops. The staff are happy, helpful, and speak English. They called a taxi for us when it was time to return to the airport and let us wait in the lobby while eating free snacks. Their breakfast was delicious and they are ready to serve even tho it's a buffet style. Our room was clean and quiet. We would return!

Hotel Catedral is highly rated for a reason (or rather, several): prime location in the heart of the city near the Zocalo, friendly yet professional service, good restaurants, free parking (if you're crazy enough to drive around town), and - most importantly - clean, modern rooms, all for a ridiculously reasonable price.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for one of the recently remodeled rooms - worth the small extra cost.

We chose this hotel because of its central location. It more than lived up to our expectations. The room was well designed,comfortable and kept very clean. The staff were extremely helpful, particularly the information desk. The breakfast buffet was good value. We felt very safe and well cared for. We are returning in January for a couple of days as we had such a good time.

Room Tip: Our room had a window onto a light well so was quiet. Rooms with windows on to the street may be noi...

This hotel was a top choice in the latest Lonely Planet Mexico and they were not wrong. It is very close to restaurants, the metro, historic sites and shops. The housekeeping and front desk staff were both very courteous. In addition, the front desk staff spoke English and was very helpful in organizing a day trip to Teotihuacan for us and getting us taxis when we needed them. Would return!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the courtyard. You won't have a view, but those in front face a bar wh...

Very simple, comfortable hotel at a reasonable price. We only stayed like 2 nights, so we didn't want something fancy. We had the breakfast buffet in the morning, it was good.The location is great. The view on the two terraces is awesome. We would go there at night and have a little drink and snack and just chill.
