Too noise!
Room with now windows - hot and stuffy - open slates across the top of the door let in all the noise of the corridor and the open corridors above - babies crying, TVs, people talking... we could not sleep until after midnight - noise started at 6am again!

Great location!
Love the location, walk to Zocalo, Bellas Artes, Plaza Garibaldi. Ask for room with windows, otherwise you may get a dark room with only natural light comes from interior hallway. Recently added free breakfast.

Excellent location and helpful staff
The hotel's location is great; just half a block from busy and Exciting Madero street and four blocks to Bellas Artes. I was attending a concert in Bellas Artes so the location was just perfect. It's a historic old building. I had a room with no outside noise, however noise does carry in the hallway. I had an issue with an INCOSIDERATE guest talking on his cell phone sitting at a table right outside my room. I asked him to hush, he moved to another site but still speaking loudly enough. I called the front office and they solved the problem immediately. This was very late at night The staff is very friendly and professional. I arrived early and was allowed to check in. Great Service, great location, great old building in the center of the Historic District. I highly recommend it.
