Stayed there twice during business trips to CDMX. Love the place, its in the very heart of the city with an open air balcony restaurant/bar overviewing central plaza. Personel is professional and friendly. Food is top and pricewise reasonable. Rooms are decent, free water and fruits and nicely decorated. Sometimes a bit loud due to evening activities on central plaza....

The hotel is going through some renovation but I found this place to be enjoyable nonetheless.

At first I was sad I didn't get a...

The room was very beautiful, the bed was super comfortable, and the attention to detail was amazing. Hand written notes were left in our room everyday with little...

I always felt safe. Very close to the start of the...

I stayed in the Hotel Zocala Central, right next to Zocala Square. My room was very modern and comfortable and the dining room on the 6th floor was excellent. My breakfast was complimentary. Native Mexican dancers were right at the corner of Zocala Square. Someone beat the drum while the natives danced…actually quite similar to our Natives in Canada except...
