I stayed at this hotel for six nights on the 7th floor. Dates of stay were from June 15-20, 2012. I stayed at this same hotel about twenty years ago with a friend and have to say the property has not aged well. I travel to Mexico City frequently for both work and fun and normally stay at another hotel in the Zona Rosa area but the other hotel does not have air conditioning and when I was in town a month earlier it was very hot so I tried the Century.
The hotel is very average. The people who staffed the front desk were all friendly and there were no problems with anyone. For the price this hotel charges one can find a much nicer place in the area; I know this because I checked out some other nearby hotels while I was there.
The internet was free and the connection was good, stable, no problems with disconnections. The location is very good and the hotel was clean. The room was quiet enough considering Mexico City can be a very noisy place and especially in this area of town but the door to the balcony stayed closed because of the air conditioning. The water pressure is very good, the hot water is plentiful and the bathtub is huge.
Negatives, the hotel is just very very dated looking. The bulb above the tub burned out and was never replaced. In fairness I did not report it but thought the maid would notice and report it. The lid to the toilet would not stay up and the top to the toilet had been broken and was glued back together. The colors in the room were mostly pink and green and looked as if it has not been updated since the 1970's. The main issue with the room was the lack of electrical outlets. There were two by the mirror but none that were close enough to the bed to be used to charge an IPAD or cell phone and still have it handy. The door to the room seemed to close securely but light from the hall came into the room around the door. The elevator was out a few times and was frequently very noisy. Last, the elevator would not go to the top floor where the pool was located so I was unable to use the pool (the door for the stairs to the pool was kept locked). They also charge 4 pesos per minute for local calls.
Overall it is not a bad place but for the price one can do much better. I would not hesitate to stay there again but it would certainly not be one of my first choices.
