Gran Hotel Ciudad de México, Mexico City

(4.5/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Based in the historic center of the city, Gran Hotel Ciudad de México draws the attention of architecture enthusiasts. The building features the first "Chicago" techique, mixing iron and concrete, used in the area. 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. Inside the building, admire Art Nouveau decor and an original stained-glass ceiling, deisgned to represent railroads and modern life.

  • Its central stained glass windows in the ceiling are beautiful. Its architecture is porfiriana. Good place for small events in their classrooms. The food is not good, but sue can enjoy a cup of coffee.

  • Beautiful place to visit and enjoy a nice dinner at the terrace restaurant overlooking the Zocalo especially in holiday season, or making a reservation in advance for the dinner of the cry of independence. It has parking on the street of La Palma.

  • THE entrance to lobby is worth the visit. Large stained glass window and terraces make a European style atmosphere. THE hotel was inaugurated during the Porfiriato so the architectural style represents the art nouveau of that era. The terrace of the last floor gives us a view of the most beautiful socket, National Palace and the Cathedral.

  • Nice place to eat and excelent service. The restaurant have an incredible view of the Mexico's main square. It's highly recommended if you want to try traditional mexican food.
  • Un servicio excelente
  • Muy buen lugar
  • Beautiful hotel. Close to everything. Just few minutes walk from touristic attraction downtown Mexico.
  • This is a gorgeous boutique hotel. It's not very large, and it doesn't have all the amenities of the standard chain hotel (e.g. no pool, no spa). But it's right in the middle of the historic city center, and it has a lovely old-world Art Deco charm. The food in the breakfast cafe is actually delicious. Make sure to try the bread rolls. There's also a gym if you need it. We initially were given a room that had weak A/C, and after some failed attempts to fix it, the hotel decided to just upgrade us to a bigger room with a properly functioning A/C. I felt that the staff took very good care of us, so I would totally stay here again if I were to come back to Mexico.
