Centrally located. Staff very friendly and helpful in making touring arrangements, etc.. Room was small but comfortable and conveniently set up. Roof top restaurant had excellent food and service, along with a splendid view of the Constitutional Square (Zocalo), National Palace and Cathedral. It's now our go-to place in Mexico City.

Right a corner from Zocalo, this hotel is nice and clean. Rooms are well equipped and provided with all facilities. Terrace restaurant is breathtaking, food quality is good and particular. Getting late checkout has been more complicated and expensive than expected.
