Trying to stay at this hotel is like trying to break into a bank ! At first we stoped the car outside the hotel and my girlfriend went in to ask about availability. She was told that there was a free room but that the police would give us a fine for stoping outside the hotel so she had to...

I was surprised that the hotel was so authentic, especially in the heart of the Historic Mexico District. Surrounded by at least a dozen cathedrals, museums, and buildings, it was only a walk away from everything. My bank, the phone company and many restaurants, were close by. The hotel had large spacious rooms, and the balcony was a plus. The...

I have been a fan of the Isabel for years, but they seem to be neglecting the infrastructure issues. The elevator has been out almost every day, and today I was told it may be out for the next two days. There are 5 floors counting the lobby floor. The wifi is off and on so that if you have...

It was a lovely hotel in a good, central location. This is not a fancy hotel, but for the price it is very reasonable. It is an older building, and you can feel that in the rooms but it has all the modern facilities you need. Plus, walking distance to the historical centre.

This is a BUDGET hotel so if you go with 4-star expectations, you will be disappointed. It's a charming building with the metro and many restaurants, bars, shops and landmarks nearby. We stayed in a double with an en suite bathroom. The room was spacious with high ceilings and a balcony overlooking the street. The bathroom was spotless; the shower...

I loved staying in this charming and welcoming hotel and will be using it on a regular basis when I am working in the city centre. It is the complete Mexican experience in typical colonial building. My online reservation was smooth, check in was trouble free and the room, large and more than adequate with a delightful balcony overlooking the...

A cheaper hotel with no frills as expected. The staff were exceptionally friendly and the hotel has a character not replicated anywhere else. We speak minimal Spanish which was not an issue once you found the right staff member to speak to. Overall a good experience and a great central location for tourists.
