"European city in Mexico"
We really enjoyed our time in Mexico City with its beautiful old classic buildings, narrow streets and the numerous churches and hugh cathedral in the town centre. Eating is relatively cheap with plenty of food choices. Bring your walking shoes and Imodium tablets!
"Just a simple Holiday Inn..."
From outside, and the internet photos you think this is a prime 5-star luxury hotel in the heart of the historic city, but it isn’t, there’s nothing luxury in this 2nd grade motel. Yes, is in the heart of the historic city but that’s all, the rest is like a regular Holiday Inn back in the states (USA I mean). Starting with a non taste entrance decoration at the lobby where you expect and should be putting the top dollar of that budget, then the rooms that average 120 to 160 dollars the night are smaller than a mid-class cruise cabin. The European rooms decoration and the beds which were just change couple of months previous my stay (June 2017), are appealing and very comfortable. The service was impeccable and very friendly (I speak fluent Spanish) from the housekeeper to the front desk personnel. The food is below average for the price of the room and the impression of a 5 stars’ hotel. Although on ‘Trip Advisor’ website the hotel advertises an ‘airport shuttle’ don’t expect such as a complement for your stay, the shuttle is an exclusive free service for VIP and or executive costumers. Instead theirs suppose ‘airport shuttle’ for the average you and I, is an unmarked vehicle that will steep you with a 250 Mexican pesos (approximate 12 dollars back then exchange) compare with the 70 pesos from a regular taxi. Another surprise from this hotel is that the bottles of water are not free, you will be charge 25 pesos in comparison with the vendor across the street for 12 pesos. I could be paying little less with a lot more luxury and space at the more or less location knowing what I know now from this place. You are advice; go someplace else.
"Anniversary trip "
Stayed here from June 3 to June 8, for my anniversary, can't describe in words what a fantastic time we had. To one point we had a little situation, but Jacqueline from front desk took care of the situation in a minute, showing her professional ethics, put us in contact with the hotel director for more assistance.

People like you make a difference, great job guy !!! My regards, Doina caragata
"Ideally situated for first trip to Mexico City"
Room was a little dark and tired but overall ideally situated for first trip to Mexico City as many attractions within walking distance. Excellent top floor restaurant with roof terrace. Very good concierge service.
"An oasis in a very crowded neighborhood."
We previously stayed here in 2015 and again, we ar still very impressed with it's location and the rates have remained very reasonable. Walk in any direction and you will find from high end retail stores to hole in the wall tacquerias. Make sure to visit Palacio de Cultura Citibanamex on the main pedestrian street Madero #17. Entrance is free and the exhibitions are from better than good to excellent. While there we visited an exposition of Flor Garduño, a well known Mexican photographer. We have not tried the hotel's restaurant since there are so many alternatives around and from the main lobby you can enter the next door Starbucks. The hotel offers bicycles for rent.
