Gran Hotel Ciudad de Mexico, Mexico City

4.6
Based in the historic center of the city, Gran Hotel Ciudad de Mexico 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.

  • Went to see because friends told us how beautiful it was and indeed it is but don’t eat in the restaurant. Nice waiters but food is mediocre at best.  more »
  • This recently refurbished hotel is located in a corner of the Zocala of the city of Mexico. It is worth admiring the stained glass windows of the interior. Highly recommended, go up to the terrace of the restaurant and enjoy the view

  • Made reservations months in advance only to have Gran Hotel throw our reservation into the trash can to make room for a larger group. What good are reservations when the hotel will not honor them? Ver...  more »

  • Stayed at the beautiful and historic Gran Hotel this past January and would absolutely recommend this place. The staff was incredibly attentive and the rooms are elegant, and there's 24 hour security and concierge service. They also have a delicious breakfast buffet with diverse food options. Also, it is walking distance to many main attractions in Mexico City, which is a big plus. Would definitely stay here again!
  • Beautiful restaurant with nice zocalo and surrounding building view. It is apparently top class view in Mexico City. My ox tail soup was too salty on my tongue. My stake did not have taste at all. What was that? Service was good. Price is high. Access from the hotel entrance to the restaurante was super impressive. interior decoration and it’s Architecture is super. Excellent hotel to stay and have some drink at night or daytime.
  • Just wow! We stayed here on our last night in Mexico City and this hotel was amazing. The nice service, clean room, and beautiful decor was very enjoyable. An added bonus is the location. There were so many activities taking place at El Zocalo which is right next to the hotel. We were fortunate and happened to have a window view of the square. Of course, you can't talk about this hotel without mentioning its beautiful glass ceiling! It's so beautiful that I'm pretty sure it made an appearance in the movie Coco.
  • We just stopped in for an excellent breakfast on New Year's Day. The hotel is a must see if you are in CDMX. The reception area is 4 floors high covered with a Tiffany skyline ceiling. The casual restaurant is right off the reception and has friendly service, pleasant atmosphere, and good food. Our breakfast for two cost about $15US and included coffee, a basket of pastry, a plate of sliced fruit. My husband had chilaquilas and I had an excellent scrambled egg dish.
  • Wonderful historic location and extremely friendly staff. Prime location for CD tourism. Great room service choices for when you want to stay in. Excellent all the way around.
