Great for what I needed - a safe, clean place to crash during my November Mexico City stay

I stayed here three nights in December. I can not vouch for any other time of the year. It may get too hot or cold in the rooms ... the only types of climate control seem to be the window with no screen (and yes there are bugs) and a fan kept in the closet.

Overall, I enjoyed the hotel. The price was outstanding. The front desk was very helpful. It's close to a huge high end shopping plaza, Reforma 222. There is plenty going on down Londres Street. There's a 7-11 on the corner (don't ask them to break any big bills!).

The elevator is tiny, but there is an elevator.

The room was small but functional. The bathroom was very nice and spacious.

Room security seemed good with an electronic key card.

Front desk is very helpful with trips, taxis, suggestions. The business room seemed nice, though I didn't use it. Free internet was great.

Restaurant was nice. Nothing fancy. Buffet breakfast had a lot of variety, though I didn't appreciate it too much (except the fruit). Everyone was very nice.

I certainly would stay here again ... it's nice to have some local charm with a personal feel, instead of some fancy dancy mega-international hotel. I bet the service there wouldn't be any better.

stayed 2 nights and found this to be a delightful little hotel with excellent service. The people were very helpful about directions and the location was ideal. 3 blocks to subway, 2 blocks to bus, surrounded by restaurants. Not fancy but had everything you need and clean. We also had free breakfast included in the price. Imagine.. the front desk clerk gave us his bus pass to use to get us around!! Would that happen anywhere else?

Stayed at the Hotel del Principado for three nights recently and really enjoyed the experience. The hotel is just a few blocks from the heart of the Zona Rosa but the short walk is more than made up for by the reasonable price of the hotel and it's general proximity to the Metro.

Had a bit of trouble initially arranging a spot on a tour one morning but when the problem was recognized the staff were really great about getting everything sorted. In general the staff is very welcoming and have excellent English.

My room was very basic but clean and comfortable, and certainly well worth the price. I definitely recommend it as an affordable home base for seeing the city.

The hotel is right in the middle of la Zona Rosa. The rooms are small, but the bed and tv are good. The breakfast is great with good coffee. Carlos the bell boy was very helpful, as was all of the staff. Only 5 minutes walk to Insurgentes Metro Station, and 5 minutes to the bars in la Zona Rosa. A great place to stay in Ciudad de Mexico.

It is very close to the Zona Rosa, about 4 blocks and very nice area to walk around. 7-11 on the corner, 24 hours. The staff is very nice. They can use a bit of a makeover. I just think they need a bit more lighting in the hotel brighten up the place. The room is small, clean and the softest bed I ever slept in in Mexico.

Room Tip: you are choosing this hotel because of location and price. I would stay again, but at the same time...

This was a comfortable, clean hotel. Very friendly and good efficient service. It was very good value for money and very central. I only stayed one night but will certainly go back.
