  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful lobby, probably one of the grandest I've seen. The stained glass ceiling is brilliant in the afternoon sun. The old elevator is a fun way to get to the 3rd floor. There is free tea and coffee in the lobby. The service is quick and efficient and the staff is friendly. The doormen will always greet you with a smile. We got the suite that faces Zocalo plaza. The views are incredible and the huge bay doors open to let in the sounds and smells of Zocalo, not to mention a fresh breeze. We slept with the doors open and a cool fresh breeze all night long. The morning sun will definitely wake you up and hit you right in the eye. The beds are huge - get off on the other side and you'll end up in China. They give free waters everyday... The restaurant is not that great but views are wonderful.
  • Beautiful architecture and a fascinating stained glass ceiling. Go up to the fourth floor to see the ceiling from up close, and go eat or drink at the terrace for a nice view of the Zocalo Plaza.
  • If you want to get dinner you have to wait like 15 minutes to get into but once you get there it totally worth it.
