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.

  • 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.
