I recently stayed at this hotel for a week with family (including children) and our experience was very, very positive!! The room was large (including a shower/tub bathroom) and always very clean. The staff were attentive and friendly at all times; my nephew became ill late one night and the hotel staff were compassionate and resourceful in trying to find medicine for my nephew, gracias!!!
The area is very safe, we would walk to dinner every night and never felt anything but safe in those streets. My family and I will return to this hotel!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces 5 de Mayo Ave...you will have a view of the Cathedral.

I discovered Hotel Gillow by default after not being able to get a booking at Hotel Catedral. It's clean, the location is excellent and the front desk staff, friendly. The rooms at the Gillow are much improved after the remodeling of the floors (the old carpet was removed and new wood-like flooring installed). Although the Gillow doesn't have the services of Hotel Catedral, (hence one less star) it's the perfect place to stay for a night or two, if one prefers a downtown layover point before or after a flight. It's cheaper than the airport hotels, even with the taxi fare and what could be more fun than staying steps from the zocalo? If you're sensitive to noise (hey, it's a big city), bring ear plugs.

Liked the location, very close the the historic area in Mexico City.

Staff very helpfull, spoke good english.

Rooms clean. Had a nice little balcony off room over looking the street. Rooms old but classic style with timble floors and bath tubs.

Had filted water for guests.

Would recommend if staying for a few days in Mexico City.

Hotel Gillow could not be more central. It is right in the middle of everything. Walking distance from Bellas Artes and the Zocalo. It's really a perfect location for a visit to Mexico City specially if it's your first time. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfy. The staff was friendly and helpful. The prices were great and the restaurant was yummy. I highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: All I know is I was on the top floor and it had really nice terrace.
