Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 July 2014

This was my first time at the Hotel Catedral and Mexico City. The location is perfect - in the center of the historic sights and walking distance to everywhere. It is also conveniently located a few blocks from the Zocalo Metro station so it's super easy to get around the different areas of Mexico City.
The hotel is very clean, and the staff is friendly and always eager to help. The WIFI was a little shaky - it worked for the most part but there would be a small chunk of the day where it wouldn't connect.
The best part of the hotel though is the breakfast! Do yourself a favor and add the breakfast to your room rate because it is so well worth it. Telma, the cook, is the sweetest and most wonderful person, and an awesome cook! She will make to order your eggs, tacos, etc and is very attentive to your needs - she will make sure you never have an empty cup of coffee or glass of juice.
If you are going to mexico city for the first time, i would definitely recommend Hotel Catedral - it's the perfect hotel within a beautiful city!

Room Tip: The balcony with the view of the cathedral is on the 7th floor so if you want easy access to the bal...

Hotel Catedral is my usual place to stay in Mexico Sity. It is in a great location, clean, with helpful staff. The rooms are adequate, nothing special but adequate.The hotel is near the Zocalo, the Cathedral and close to a metro station, with easy walking to the downtown area and many of the historic palaces, government buildings and major sights of the city.

I've been coming to Hotel Catedral for the past 10 years and I've always had a wondeful experience. The staff is simply great, always attentive and always trying to make sure that the guest enjoys the stay. Totally recommend it. Location is perfect, close to the Zocalo, right in the Historical Center of Mexico, where every street and every building has a story to tell. If you can, stay here!!!

This is truly an outstanding hotel in downtown Mexico City, close to the zocalo. The rooms are pleasant and clean. There was a new elevator being installed when we were there in February of this year (2014). The lobby is very attractive and they often have fresh fruit or homemade cookies at the desk. There is a travel agency associated with the hotel. Most staff members speak some English. Their desk staff and concierge service is excellent. Be sure to have their breakfast - you will be amazed. It is simply the best breakfast we have ever had in a hotel in all our years of travelling. It includes Mexican specialties, fresh fruit, delicious granola, fresh fruit juices, eggs. bacon, special requests the chef will make on the spot - it is wonderful. Thelma is a terrific chef. The prices are very reasonable for the accomodations that are offered.

Room Tip: There is some sort of bar across the street that can get a little noisy at times. If this is a conce...

You have to love the platters of complimentary cookies and guayaba fruit or plums available at the reception desk daily, all day. What distinguishes this Zocalo area hotel, and why I prefer it over any other in Mexico City, including Gran Hotel Ciudad de Mexico, is they way they value and treat clients, with care and respect. The client is always right. I continue to come back time and again, and bring my small groups of art history lovers here to stay. The rooms are clean and fresh. There is a new elevator that you can get on from the lobby without climbing the stairs with heavy bags, and the staff at the breakfast dining room are excellent. I can't believe that with all the guests they have, they remember me, but they do! Save your money and your time searching elsewhere. This is the place to stay. P.S. Ask for a quiet room that faces the cathedral. You will have a good night's sleep.

Room Tip: I like room 414. Choose any from X floor with a window looking toward the cathedral and you will ha...

Traveling in Latin America since 15 years, we always come back to hotel Catedral in Mexico City where we feel completely at home. The reception and service are impeccable at all levels. The rooms are brand new, large and comfy (including the hot water), most of them very calm. The breakfast buffet is one of the best I have ever known and it is accessible until 11.30. Check out is at 2 PM, very convenient for taking planes in the evening ; but it may become a problem when the hotel was fully booked, because it delays the time of actual check-in . The location is perfect, in the middle of the Historical Center, and secure. Internet access is fast but sometimes needs a reset.
To sum : The people at the Catedral Hotel really care for their customers and they constantly aim at offering them the best possible stay.
Special thanks to Jessica at the reception and to S. Pacheco at the Tour Desk.

Room Tip: Some rooms do not have a view to the outside of the hotel. Thus they receive less daylight and may b...
