"Fantastic Stay in the Heart of the City"
A wonderful four night stay at NH Historico. The room was very clean and spacious, the bed was great, the bathroom was clean, and the staff (from the cleaning ladies to the concierge) was very helpful.The excellent wifi was very much appreciated. I was given a room on the inside of the courtyard (away from the street), since I am light sleeper, I really appreciated that, for no city sounds bothered. If I wanted to feel and hear the city then I went out into the streets and cafes. All and all, a delightful stay near the Zoccolo of Mexico City.
"NH Hotel is very nice and very clean."
Great place if you can get a good price on it. Try Kayak!! We only paid something like USD$90 per night, then we get there and see the walk-up rate was over $250 per night. Great place. Rooms are great and clean. Staff is awesome! Bar is hardly a bar as it is in the middle of the lobby and almost never open, but who cares' You are in Mexico City! There are bars everywhere!
"Unclean, uncomfortable, well located"
The only good things about this hotel: location, price (though there are other options), and fast wifi. Other than that, it was not good. The bed is a ROCK, the lighting is really dim, and oh man - that bathroom. First, the door to the bathroom is opaque glass, with no sound dimming whatsoever, so if you are rooming with someone, know that they will hear EVERY move you make in there. The tile went across the floor and up all bathroom walls and the caulk in between was GROSS - somewhere between moldy and just plain dirty. There were marks of things on the walls throughout (hair gel' urine' surprise!). There is a HUGE barrier to climb over to get into the shower, and even as an able-bodied person I felt like I was about to slip every time I got in or out. Towels felt like sandpaper. We sent out for laundry service - a few days' worth of socks, underwear, and shirts - and it ended up being $90. Breakfast at the restaurant was really good, with a great spread, but it was $10/person - more than double what it would've been at most restaurants nearby. We also tried the restaurant for dinner one night when I was feeling sick I just think with all the options that there are around the Zocalo, this is not a good one.
"Average Hotel with Terrible Service"
This hotel is situated near the Zocolo in Mexico City so well located but beware - the service is very bad. When we checked in we were told a completely different price than the one we were quoted when we called. As well, we were told that breakfast was included and for the price, it definitely should have been, but they didn't honour that and charged us for breakfast on top of an already high hotel room price. We were very polite but insistent and they would not bend at all and surprisingly, the hotel was almost empty. Although modern, it was shabby and the internet was very spotty. There are nicer hotels for less money. Don't waste yours.
"Good stay with a baby"
Since I travel with a crawling baby I wanted to share my experience for other parents. This is a very nice and accommodating hotel in a great location in central México City. We stayed in a superior room. The room was huge. The floors are laminate and were very clean for the baby to crawl around. The provided crib was small but sufficient. The blanket for the crib was way too big and I had to do some blanket wrangling so that the baby wouldn't get too hot. The bathroom is really large and has a big tub. However one big con as others have noted is how inaccessible the tub is. Even as a mobile adult I was afraid of falling. It was also difficult to reach the baby during bath time due to how set back the tub is. The reason I chose the hotel is that there is a short hallway between the door and the main room. This is the perfect place to put the crib so the baby has their own space and parents don't have to be silent and keep it dark when the kid goes to bed super early. This worked out as well as possible at this hotel. See the photo I included. Our room was situated facing an unused inner courtyard, so it was very quiet. A few negatives: 1. The worst thing is that, although there is central air, it isn't automatic. This means that if you get hot you have to get up and turn on the air. It runs until you get so freezing that you get up again to turn it off and the cycle repeats. This almost knocks off another star. 2. There are no washcloths, which makes it difficult to wash kids. 3. The lighting is very dim. There are a thousand different lights and a thousand different switches, but even once you figure out how to get them all on it's still dark. It would be nice to have the option of being able to see details around the room and finding things, etc. 4. Bathroom has a glass door, so if you turn on the light at night it might disturb your child. Despite these it's a good option in México City, especially for the price we found.
