As all reviews mentioned, the hotel is a architecture gem in the historical center of Mexico. I had an executive suite with the view on the Zocalo where something always happen (raising of the flag, concert, demonstrations...) so noisy. Nevertheless I enjoyed the location and slept well with earplugs. The room was large and has everything including tea cattle, iron and mini bar. The large TV was not working but got fixed straight away. The bathroom was also very spacious with a bathtub. The shower was really strong and practical. Actually my colleague had a normal room next door and it was very the same space and features with only an entrance with sofa and chair in the suite.
I stayed a few days and enjoyed every night coming back to the hotel a glass of sparkling wine at the reception. The girls were really nice and friendly.
Breakfast was included and it is not a buffet but a la carte. It was good though I prefer buffets with large choices. The service was a bit hectic in the morning; waiters were nice but often we had to ask several times and one morning a cup of coffee was poured in the back of a client.
The restaurant on the roof is great. Margaritas are very generous and excellent! The food was good.
I really like very much the calm and special atmosphere of this hotel and will certainly go back.
