I found this place at the last day of trip in Día de Muertos. It has a balcony of great view, and there we could see the zombies' march at once! WIFI and restrooms available :)

The best place to enjoy Bellas Artes palace view. It's located on the 9th floor of Latinoamericana Tower. It has a pretty good variety of snacks and a coffee bar. Have your camera ready to take an awesome picture from up there.

Looking over the Zocalo, the restaurant above the Gran Hotel de Ciudad is amazing! We felt very well taken care of by Alfredo, Erick, Alejandro and Fernando and had a lovely meal on our last night in the CIty.
