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 is only good for one device. Aside from that, I'll be staying at the Maria Christina again when I return to Mexico City in two weeks.
