“Terrible hotel”
Reviewed 19 January 2014 via mobile

I'm sure there are hostels that offer better accommodation than Mallorca Hotel. The hotel is very old. Shower heads have lime scale so the shower strength was poor. There was only lukewarm water available for a shower on the first night I was there. The hotel is also freezing! We all had to ask for extra blankets. And the coffee from the hotel restaurant tasted like cardboard. This may be cheap but I would never stay here again. Only reason I stayed here was that the tour company I was travelling with (Intrepid) use this hotel. The staff are friendly enough and tried to help with extra blankets & cleaning my shower head, but I definitely wouldn't return to this hotel.

Our back packing tour company booked us into this hotel. It's basic but clean and popular with Mexican tour groups so I had to wear earplugs because of all the coming and goings. The location is a long way from the centre of town although just off The Reforma, the main drag. Our Mexican official tour guide told us it was in the middle of a tolerated prostitution area. We didn't see anything untoward.

Room Tip: We had a room off the internal light well so we didn't get traffic noise.

Great location in Mexico City... but unfortunately our stay wasn't the best when visited in November 2013. Our room had sticky carpet and the security chain and locks on the door were very flimsy so at times it felt quite unsafe. There was a tv in the room, but there was no remote to turn it on. We were told that we had to pay and leave a deposit for the remote control in order to use it. There was construction happening at 10pm on the floor below, so it was quite noisy. Sorry to say, but the lady on front desk was quite rude when we asked about the tv and currency conversion, and didn't bother to answer our questions. On a positive, the staff in the restaurant downstairs were very friendly and there is an OXO and restaurants in close walking distance! Great if you do not plan on spending much time in your room.

Great value! Next to a Walmart supermarket for brek and late night snacks. Oxxo's around the corner for huge coffees 24-7. Near the Revolution metro and Reforma and Insurgentes buses. Clean, clean room! Fun channels on TV. A bit noisy with tour groups, just use earplugs. Comfy, soft, clean bed. Spic n span bathroom, hot hot shower. So easy to get to sites from here: Zocalo, Alameda, Chapultepec, Roma. Safe and neighborhoody. 7-11, Citibank, useful chains all around. Life is easy here for a few days.

Like I said. Very well located. Just two blocks from the Reforma Metrobus station and 3 block from Paseo de la Reforma and to top it off its only $ 26.00 dollars for two adults!!!!!. Un-heard of prices on this location. The rooms are clean but they fell stuffy. The window doesnt open much since it is just a slot about 4 inches by 36 inches. I guess for security reasons. But you didn't go to Mexico to stay inside a hotel, right ?

If you're coming for visit or bussines don't get fooled asking the airport taxi driver to take you to a "good hotel" since they are in cahoots with some hotel. Our first night we stayed at a hotel at 63 dollars per night and two block down we found this one at 26 dollars per night. They are very close to La Zona Rosa. A trendy night life area, as well.

They accept visa, MC, AX, and of course......cash.

The hotel is quite basic and a little smelly but the staff is kind, a bottle of water is provided every day and the location is excellent, walking distance from the centre and the museum area and close to a subway station. Good cheap hotel.

Hotel was in central part of city. Room was clean and plenty hot water but very basic.
Easy walking to sights. Pre booked taxi from airport cost A$50.
Supermarket right next door which has ALL supplies. Staff friendly and safe deposit box.
Recommended as a budget hotel in safe area.
