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.

  • It is one of the oldest hotels in the city of Mexico but one of the most elegant since it preserves the beauty of the 1880s and the modern era. Its interiors are luxurious with the best of that time but care as if had done so yesterday. Its rooms are large without so much technology but comfortable. His restaurant on the terrace is beautiful in its view of the zocalo in the city and its surroundings, in addition that the food is delicious.

  • Excellent food, very pretty place! but I only have a small complaint, yesterday I had the opportunity to eat at his restaurant and turned to my table Mr. Manuel Tenorio, and frankly the way they behaved I threw me off first was friendly and suddenly change their attitude a little cutting and refiri endorse to the menu as "it is what it is, already ordered" speeding me so felt it, the second time I call my attention was the treatment towards its very rude staff on their side and in front of customers, I think that if they should take care of that situation, I don't know if the Lord was stressed but I feel that cannot clear mood in the presence of a customer, they should not allow this to happen in a place so pleasant such as restaurant and hotel! Best regards.

  • 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.
  • Wasted Beauty. Stunning building on all accounts. Breathtaking stained glass ceilings and an unmatched view of the plaza below. Not exactly complemented by the plastic wicker furniture, cracked novelty glasses and shameless choice of art. I made better cocktail mixes as a clueless 7 year old that sought a candy high. Margaritas should be paired with a diabetes test coupon. Lovely staff and beautiful weather, but no need to revisit this terrace bar, only the hotel, which is open to the public.
  • Beautiful old building. Very grand and the location is perfect. It is just off the Zocalo so good for visiting all the sights and is easy to get to from the airport using Metrobus. Room was comfortable and housekeeping was of a very good standard. Bottled water and coffee maker were in the room with free tea and coffee in reception. Friendly reception staff and welcome drinks were a nice touch.
  • Outstanding service! Rooms are fine. Not bad, but not spectacular. It's a 120 year old hotel... From the doormen to the concierge to the housekeeping, just a very high level of service. The review is for the hotel, not the restaurant, which was not particularly good.

Where to stay in Mexico City

Head straight to the trendy neighborhoods of Roma or La Condesa if you're looking for an artsy atmosphere--you can find design-conscious hostels and boutique hotels nestled among the many bars, restaurants, cafes, and galleries. For easy access to the city's most beautiful architecture, you can't beat staying in the historical center, although the neighborhood's UNESCO-listing means you'll only find smaller, old-fashioned options there. You can also indulge in a few luxury nights in the fancy Polanco district, or look for a more budget-friendly option in the popular Zona Rosa.
