I was very please with this hotel. Pros: the rate per night is very reasonable, compared to other hotels in the same area. It has a great location, just a block away from Reforma and the Angel de la Independencia. We took a turibus from the mall Reforma 222 which is a few blocks away from the hotel. Con: Wifi... More

The hotel is nice, old-fashioned and quiet, located close to Zona Rosa and to a bunch of good places to have dinner and a drink at night. The only down side is the internet. The hotel only allows you to connect ONE device per room, and their internet code is changing everyday. You do have the option to pay for... More

The Maria Christina - quite my kind of place: affordable antidote to the big chain hotels. Centrally located, grand lobby, gardens, modest sized room, large bathroom, well maintained by a super friendly staff. Coffee shop/restaurant off lobby. Annoying detail: Management requires that you get a new code every 24 hours to use their low signal internet modem and the code... More

It is a lovely old hotel. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful. They also speak English, which is very helpful. However, there were three big problems and one lesser. First, the internet sucks. I made a point of saying I wanted a room with good internet. It was off and on and very slow when it was on.... More

This hotel is not truly upscale and modern as many other hotels in the area. Some of the suites could use some renovation and there is no fine dining at the hotel's expensive restaurant... but... set all that aside and you will find many other positive reasons to stay at this hotel. First reason is price. You can go spend... More

I haven't stayed here. I can't communicate with them in any form. The website made me fill out a reservation, told me that they would get back to me in 24 hours and that was days ago.

Wonderful courtyard that comes as a welcome surprise in the howling chaos of DF. Rooms are clean and relatively modern; location is across Reforma from the Zona Rosa so you aren't in the midst of all that street traffic. Prices are usually quite fair so if you're on a budget you're getting a pretty nice hotel for the price. Safe,... More

I have been staying in this hotel always while in México D.F. since 1996, I feel like coming home in México. It is charming, near Zona Rosa, but with excellent price which has maintained during the years. Helpful and friendly staff, cosy atmosphere.

I have been staying at the Maria Cristina for 15 years and it has remained an excellent choice in Mexico City. Although it could use a bit of upgrading, it is a highly recommendable option. It is safe, warm, with very good quality wifi and a restaurant we, as tourists, can trust.
