“Safe, friendly, and convenient”
Reviewed 11 August 2011

I´ve been staying here for the past five summers. It's not the Ritz or even the Holiday Inn, but it's clean, inexpensive, safe, and within walking distance to the metro and many tourist destinations. There is no spa and you pay to use the computers in the lobby. Internet access for your laptop is available. I've never used room service, although many guests take advantage of it. Staff members are helpful and friendly. And they'll call a safe taxi for you, whenever you want one.

Room Tip: Your choice is usually between a noisy room and a sunny one!

Clean & quiet and an easy walk to the historical parts of the city. No breakfast included but a good restaurant attached and a fun little bar to meet the locals and try the tequila!

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor are nice and quiet.

This hotel is located just blocks away from the Centro Historico in Mexico City making it an ideal place to stay. The Hotel has a beautiful internal courtyard too.
With breakfast included the price was good for the one night.

This hotel is very helpfull and clean, the location is great and there is a nice roof terrace were you can hangout in the sun.
When we returned on the way back to mexico city we could leave our backpacks here for free in the luggage room during the day, which was very nice.
You can pick a room with or with shared bedroom so for every one's budet there is something.Downstairs is a restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner which is nice and close..
There is free wifi also.

Reviewed 28 September 2010

I spent two weeks in Mexico on business, four nights at this Hotel. Hotel Isabel was recommended, by a friend who had stayed here previously, as a base for exploring the Historic Centre.

It is situated a couple of blocks from the Zocalo and very convenient for the whole of the historic centre.

My room was very large with an en-suite. There was a safe large enough for my laptop and valuables and I had a view looking down the street which was good to get my bearings. The decor is dated with sickly peach furnishings and bedding plus some clashing patterns to add to the effect, but the room was clean and the bed comfortable. Service was friendly, there was free wifi, free water and perfectly located for everything I wanted to do in the area. Plus it was very cheap.

I didn't try the restaurant as I quickly discovered Cafe El Popular nearby which was great for breakfast or a coffee and snack.

As a solo, female traveller, who was going to be going out and about, the hotel was fine, as was Mexico City on the whole. I didn't go out alone after about 9-10pm when the streets were much quieter but otherwise I felt safe enough to travel on the metro and local transport.

If you are looking for budget accommodation in the Historic Centre this is most definitely a good bet.
