Look for the attraction's facade to observe neoclassical architecture; the rest of the building's exterior features neocolonial architecture to match the appearance of the Zocalo, the main plaza.

  • Located right in the hearth of Mexico City, 2 minutes away from The Cathedral and Main Square. The rooms are perfect, unique and classy style. The Bar could be so much better, I expected a nicer bar. ...  more »
  • you have is beautiful but her visit is 5 minutes. need to go up and see the terrace and maybe a coffee but little more because cooking is not nothing otherworldly and is really expensive.

  • Can't beat the location. This is where they filmed part of the James Bond Spectre. Beautiful hotel mosaic ceiling. Could use some updating. They use the old elevator after you check in. Pretty cool but then you'd have use the regular one after. Has a very nice rooftop restaurant with nice view of the central area. Average food.
  • Glorious historic hotel at an affordable price. We couldn't have asked for a better hotel for our first trip to Mexico City. We arrived with an itinerary packed full of sightseeing and dinning. The hotel's location made it an ideal base to rest, in luxury, while planning our next venture around D.F. Free wifi was quite helpful and worked perfectly. The building is just amazing, the inside is so grand and beautiful with the stain glass ceiling, it really does give you a feeling of being back in time. Upon check in, the staff was so kind and gracious. We were shown to our room and provide a small welcome gift and a nice dessert plate bed side. After a day of travel to an unknown place, this was a very nice touch that made us feel so welcomed and at home. The room was decorated nicely in a traditional manner. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room quite. I would definitely stay here again upon my next visit to Mexico. The Gran Hotel truly set the stage for our trip and enabled us to really enjoy the beauty and warmth of Mexico's impressive capital city.
  • It's gorgeous. We just visited the lobby but we checked into how much a room would be and decided that next trip we'll be staying there. It's location is great, next to the plaza and main tourist shopping streets. Everybody was incredibly friendly.
  • This hotel is the ultimate experience for staying in Mexico City. The lobby is absolutely stunning and it is run with very professional staff. My wife and I received a free upgrade to the King Suite which had an amazing view over Constitution Plaza. At night, the roof-top bar is an excellent place to enjoy a drink and the view. Highly recommended.
  • the room is amazing. took me a minute to realise you had to leave your key in a slot for most of the lights to work. reception was very accommodating. Wi-Fi wasn't the best. plus the view of the plaza has a downside, if anything is going on you hear it. I'd definitely stay again
