From check in at 1:30 am to my check out two days later I had nothing but positive experiences with the Emporio. The staff were all friendly and very professional. I'm fluent in Spanish so I had no language difficulties at all but a friend who lives in DF and stayed with me doesn't speak Spanish and even the desk clerk that checked us in spoke some English.
I had a room with two matrimonial beds - both of which were comfortable. The room was large, comfortable and very clean. The flat screen TV was modern and provided a nice break to sit and watch a movie while chilling between excursions. Where the room really stood out was the bathroom. Everything in the bathroom looked brand new. The soaker tub with jets that work and the pull out lighted magnifying mirror were great touches but it was the double headed shower with excellent water pressure that really stood out. I lived in Mexico for 14 years and visit often and I must say, I had the best showers ever in Mexico at the Emporio.
The room service menu is varied and very reasonably priced as is the mini bar. Two bottles of water are provided in the room for no charge and there is also more water that will be billed if you use it.
The location so close to the intersections of Reforma and Insurgentes is excellent. It was a 200 peso taxi ride from the airport, a 200 peso taxi ride to Mexico Norte bus station, a block to the Insurgentes Metro Bus and a short (say 10 - 15 minute for me) walk down Refoma to Belles Artes. From there another short stroll took us through the centro historico to the Zocalo to see the Christmas lights and skating rink. Another much shorter walk on Reforma in the other direction will take you to El Ángel de la Independencia for a photo op if you're visiting for the first time.
This will be my go to place when travelling through DF in future.
