Gran Hotel Ciudad de México, Mexico City
(4.5/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • Stop by the lobby to check out the stunning interior if you are visiting the Zocalo. Well worth the quick stop. 
  • Very expensive all the services considering that these in the center of the city, only for foreign tourists, not spend a comfortable stay since it warns you that you can not make noise, the beds are not comfortable, the bathroom is too small. I only recommend it for foreigners

  • The hotel boasts a stunning stained-glass window which you must visit during the day as at night you can't see anything. If only these visiting the hotel can go to the Bar to be found on the fourth floor or the terrace restaurant. Both offer a privileged view of the zocalo and the historic centre. Projected football games at the bar and it is a great option to enjoy the historic centre of the city.

  • 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.
