Editorial review:

This hotel has a great location across from the new Museo de Artes Populares. Just down the street is the Teatro Metropolitán. The bustling lobby is adorned with Mexican crafts, as are the rooms. The rooms are plain but well-kept. The staff is great and accustomed to dealing with foreigners, particularly French and Germans.

Verified Reviews:

  • Airconditioning didn't work - Staff was extremely nice - Decor was modern
  • Outdated decor - Coffee available all day - Surrounded by good restaurants
  • Beds are ok - No minibar - Tv with plenty of cable channels
  • Good breakfast - Wireless internet works properly - Would recommend
  • Wonderful location - Good rooms - Nice prices

    Clean rooms and good location. Great restaurant downstairs.

    Hard beds, no hall lights on our floor, so very dark.

    lack of air conditioning and refrigerator, small breakfast (continental)

    the location

    the rooms, too small and no air conditioner!!! It's supposed to be a 4 star Hotel and I would rate it as a 2 star max.

    The friendIinnes of all the staf. Always ready to help of advice.

    The only amplesant situation was the renovations that are being done at the present time. Once they finished will look very smart..

    Bed are clean and comfy. Staff is nice and helpful.

    The hotel is under major renovations. Can hear a bit of noise from other people's rooms. The rooms are a bit spartan, no hair dryer, no iron, maybe it will be a good place after the renovations.

  • Single

    The doormen and front desk help were very kind. The room itself was very clean and the location was great.

    The bed was very stiff but not unmanageable. The construction on the 2nd floor and next door were quite loud, but it usually didn´t begin before 10 in the morning and always ended by nightfall. The room was a bit pricey but it was comfortable, all in all.

  • Group of friends

    Good location.

    It had been acquired by HoJo's from the time we made the reservation to the time we arrived. We've stayed at the hotel under its previous name and recognized it but it had the Howard Johnson's name on it. Lobby was being redone & assume the rest of the hotel will be renovated soon. We did not receive the price we were quoted and the increase was not justified as the room was noisey and there was no air conditioning. Had we been charged the price quoted I would not have complained as we've stayed there before and know that the hotel decor was not one of it's strong points....but the location is. I had plans to contact Booked.net regarding the discrepancy. but have not had the time to do it since returning.

    It was cheap and had a convenient location for the metro as well as major parts of city.

    The way the free continental breakfast was managed through coupons that you had to go pick up every day for the next morning was annoying. Although we booked the hotel through Booked.net, the credit card used on the website was not accepted at the hotel (American Express). American express has a closed system that does not allow the changing exchange rates to affect the total cost but since we had to pay through Visa, the cost through Booked.net was shown to be us$306 but we ended up paying $355.96!

    Our second room was fine (view on the street).

    Construction in the hotel, very noisy during the day. Breakfast is very light.

    Its location!

    Better communications (telephone & internet) facilities plus small refrigerator could make the stay even better

  • Family with children

    The hotel has a great location, all kind of things to do around, Mexico City just wonderful.

    First night was really noisy some guys next door were having a party and the hotel staff didn't do that much to avoid it .We also booked it online for $38 per night, stayed 2 nights, they convert to peso(1026) when according to the web site should be (912 pesos) . They explained to us that they are using an exchange rate of 13.5 for Booked.net. This is much more money than the actual exchange rate of 11.70. That makes you feel disappointed

  • Family with children

    fair for the price (you cant expect more for this price) , nice hotel staff, location very central

    poor breakfast, a bit noisy hotel

  • Group of friends
    6.4

    Great location

    Room looks nothing like the pictures on website. Rooms were cleaned after 5PM each day. Beds were very hard.

  • Single

    locaton is nice

    noise from bar downstair. I booked it online for $32 per night, stayed 3 nights and half day, they should charge me $112, however, they insisted to convert to peso(>1550). That means the exchage rate was 13.8. This is way too high than the usual exchange rate of 12.3. I have been traveling internationall quite a lot and booked hotel in USA, check out always in USA dollar too.
