Reviewed 14 July 2014

This was my second stay at this hotel. First stay 2 years ago. First stay the hotel was good and nice so decided to go there again. The maid service wasn't good. Had to ask for things . It only had one elevator working . Their excuse construction. They had been having constructions once the first time I was there. Waited so long for elevator. They charged for ice also. Last time we got it for free.

In 2013 the hotel was renovated. The new rooms are quite ok. Food - nothing special, very simple, service just ok. There is small bar in the hotel. The storngest point of the hotel is its location. The hotel is located about 100 meters from the metro station Juarez and metrobus. Just 2 minutes walking from the hotel is Alameda Park and 10 minutes to Zocalo. Sometimes you can hear some noise coming from the nearby discoteque. Usually full of Mexicans and some organized groups.

Hotel at the safe location (very close to the center). Affordable. It's close to two metro stops, a short walk to Zocalo, and close to Alameda Park. Rooms clean and lately renovated. Corridors not. Restaurant poor, it is better to eat dinner downtown. Breakfast is ok. - mexican style. Staff king and helpful. Good relation price to value. I would stay in this hotel again.

At arrival, they didn't have record of our reservation, but we got our room anyway without problem. Stayed for 7 nights, got complimentary continental breakfast (toast, coffee and OJ)
There is remodeling construction going on and noise during the day since about 8 am.
Very good value and location, very safe zone one block from Alameda park.

We like a place to stay where we sleep, shower, and stash our stuff, in a place that is safe and affordable. This hotel was perfect for us. It's close to two metro stops, a short walk to Zocalo, and close to Alameda Park. The elevator got stuck when we tried it for the first time, and I think it's because of the renovations. We played it safe for the rest of our stay and just took the stairs. The floor were a bit dusty, and we had noisy neighbors the first night, but otherwise, we have no other complaints.

The hotel is near Alameda Park, a short walk from the historic centre, and all the main attractions. The newly renovated rooms look good but have paper thin walls and single glazing, so let through all the noise from the corridors and street.

Breakfast is good, wireless internet is free but uselessly slow (always <20kb/s, usually <1kb/s for the four day we were there ).

Room Tip: Away from the street if possible. Renovation work is still ongoing on the second floor in Feb 2013.

The Howard Johnson Alameda was a great place to stay. Economical, clean, comfortable beds, but the best about it is the staff. Always nice and smiling, always ready to help, nothing ever difficult.

Great service guys, I would be back there when I return to Mexico.

Room Tip: All rooms are good. Perhaps the ones facing the street are better for the moment as there is constr...
