Stayed for ten days here in a triple room. Ten minute walk to insurgentes metro station- through an area which felt safe in the day and the evening.Very good value for money. Lovely courtyard and garden gave a feeling of space and calm-which we needed as the room was rather small for three of us. Bathroom looked a bit old fashioned but good powerful shower with masses of piping hot water. Only problem was that it remained damp and with wet weather outside the towels could not dry. That was a problem for the first few days but then I noticed the towels were changed daily (and we suddenly got three towels not two) so obviously the staff noticed without us saying anything which was very good.Our room had some chairs outside on a little terrace which would have been good had we had better weather. It was cold in our room some nights but the night staff were excellent and found extra blankets for us. Occasionally noisy at night-once inside the hotel you forget it is on a main street and we heard cars, fireworks etc but the hotel itself was quiet. Also a wall light shone rather brightly outside our room so it was never completely dark despite pulling the curtains fully. Breakfast was good, but there is also a brilliant juice bar stall and taco vendor just outside the hotel which was cheap and delicious(spinach and cheese recommended). Reception staff were friendly and helpful and mostly spoke excellent English . They ordered us taxis, helped us print boarding passes, served drinks, stored our bags when we went away, and answered lot of small queries. Altogether highly recommend this -friendly, personal, good value , good location. Would definitely go there again-would try and book a suite next time!
