10.0 Wonderful
After five nights in one of the “prestige” Reforma hotels, we transferred to the Zocalo Central hotel just to taste a different part of Mexico City. We are so glad we did and wish we had moved earlier. The location is simply jaw-dropping. Our room, 515, (we were told) was the best in the house. I can see why. It commands a stunning vista over the Square and church. I think I could live in that room. The rest of the Zocalo Central is small compared to the Reforma hotel we had just left, but its intimacy and charm more than compensated. A bountiful Breakfast is presented on the top (sixth floor), which also commands a stunning view of the Zócalo. Do not skip breakfast or have it brought to your room (unless you’re lucky enough to get 515)! Bring your camera. The front staff are professional and friendly; the bellman, Juan Luis, has worked at the hotel for 30 years. This is stuff of legend. And perhaps one of the greatest advantages is the fact that, compared to the sterile and business-account atmosphere of Reforma, this neighborhood is the real deal of Mexico City: vibrant, exciting, a little funky, ablaze with action, packed with local restaurants (rather than Shake Shack, Krispy Kreme, and Starbucks), with stunning colonial architecture and echoes of Mexico City’s history in every direction. It’s like comparing Seattle with — well — Mexico City. Both are wonderful, but both have very different personalities. Negatives? Hard to find one, other than traffic (allow for that when coming and going to destinations outside the neighborhood), which are exacerbated by street closures. Twice, our driver explained to stern-faced police that we were tourists with luggage and needed to pass through closed street: the police smiled and let us through. Mexico City, I love you.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Their hospatality, great customer service, their breakfast delicious, my room was amazing peeeeerfect view to the Zócalo.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Super friendly staff and great location.
Cons:Need more sound proofing walls, you can hear your neighbors conversations.
8.2 Very Good
Pros:Location. Staff members were very accommodating and did successfully resolve a major problem with noise.
Cons:There was a terrible problem with noise late one night due to needed repairs. This should not have happened; an alternative should have been found., and conflict avoided.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Fantastic location in the heart of CDMX. Excellent service. Professional and personable staff work hard to make your stay enjoyable. Lovely boutique hotel.
9.7 Wonderful
Pros:The hotel is located in a great location. The staff was great.
Cons:The rooms are small.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The hotel is a gem. It is centrally located, very clean and the staff was amazing. They were friendly and helped us out with getting around the city. As soon as you walk in they make you feel welcomed. They greet you with a smile and a glass of authentic horchata or jamaica. Love it!! The evening guest services provides us with suggestions for excursions, which we took advantage of.
Cons:The restaurant buffett was a bit overpriced. It does provide a great view, so that's what you mainly pay for.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The rooms at the Zocalo Central are well accommodated and well maintained. The staff is phenomenally helpful and friendly, and the roof-top cafe has an unbelievable view of the national cathedral and central plaza below. For sightseeing purposes, one can't beat the location, which is merely steps away from the cathedral, Palacio Nacional, and the city's archeological site.
9.7 Wonderful
Pros:Best view of Zocalo, the front desk staff were very professional and accommodating. The free water bottles and apples were quite welcoming.
Cons:Rooftop restaurant did not have a bar, you have to order and sit on a table to drink. I paid the most expensive mojitos I ever had $24 dollars for two to be exact plus tip for the waiter. The room I had was tiny with a 1foot by two slim overhead window, quite claustrophobic for me... The breakfast buffet was $24 dollars, really! You walk next block to Restaurant El Popular and order their menus for less than $6.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The wonderful location.
