Hotel El Salvador
Ranked #184 of 313 Hotels in Mexico City
Reviewed 21 March 2017

During the day the area can be noisy from the many stores selling speakers for music systems.However, this is generally from 10am to 6pm. It is important to get a room not facing the street,the downside being a room with no real view.

At least one of the ladies at check-in spoke English and was helpful with information to get around the city. the Hotel is conveniently located about a 15min walk to the Zocalo and less than 10min walk to Americana Tower and Bellas Artes. The autobus stop and San Juan Letran metro stop was just around the corner from the hotel. There is also a stop a few feet from the hotel entrance on Republica del Salvador, very convenient if traveling on the bus from the airport which requires a change at Lazaro bus terminal.

The Mercado San Juan was only a 5min walk from the hotel and many dining options during the day in this area.

The single room had a queen size bed, a TV with only one English language channel CNN. The bathroom was rather small. However, good water pressure and hot water was available at all times. Two bottles of complimentary drinking water was provided daily. The room had no air conditioning and i am assuming it could get uncomfortable during the warmer months.

All in all a comfortable stay, the hotel could have thrown in complimentary breakfast as they do have a restaurant. Wifi was also good in all areas. Very convenient to public transportation which is extremely cheap and does not require the use of taxis,

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the street

My stay was as part of a group tour and I was impressed. A comfortable hotel in walking distance to many attractions. My room was very clean, the bed was comfortable and it was quiet. Nice bathroom with good supply of hot water. Wifi was ok and free.

The place is not bad for price you pay, centrally located, just few minutes away from opera house and other tourist sites. Dow side is that room has no thermostat: heat or ac. So during night it is extremely cold. But over all you get what you pay for!

It is my first stay here and when I pulled the blanket over the bed there were other people's hairs on the pillow.
There was also a pubic hair in the toilet.
Big disappointment for this hotel a few hours into my arrival
Weird smell when I entered ththe room for the first time,not cleaned properly at all.
Disgusting.

As a solo traveler I booked the cheapest room which looked onto a small courtyard at ground level. This made it quiet but with a pleasant outlook. The room isn't large as found in the older colonial style hotels but it was more than adequate. The desk space was welcome for working and the en-suite facilities whilst hardly spacious worked perfectly well. All in all I was very happy with this hotel and would return again especially as the price is reasonably competitive at the bottom end of the market in the centre of Mexico City

Room Tip: My courtyard view room suited me very well
