Retirement Mexico trip

Lovely old colonial building, tastefully restored. Very friendly helpful staff. Only downside was the noise; initially from St Jude's day, then from the rooftop bar which had loud music till 2 am. Bring your ear plugs!

Nice Place

Great Value. Good walking distance to Downtown. Staff manager who controls upstairs rooftop lounge tried to tell us that we could not sit without a reservation - this was not true. Otherwise, nice quite, place. Good food. A/C in room could have been more efficient. We will return.

Beautiful Hotel in great location.

It's a perfect combination of colonial and modern style. At a great location near restaurants, park and entertainment. Was very impressed with the room the size, the style, all the details and especially how clean it was overall. I highly recommend staying here. The staff was so nice and helpful in getting us Taxis.

Awesome location

Loved this place. Our room was small but had everything we needed. The bathroom was gorgeous. The best thing about this hotel was the location-- just a quick walk through a gorgeous city park to the historic city center.

Very good value

I went on a business trip to Mexico city and stayed at this hotel for two nights it is well located, the staff was friendly, the room was comfortable. Did have any issues with street noise because I stayed on a first floor room with no windows to the exterior just to the inside.

Nice hotel with great service

Great staff, all very helpful. Beautiful modern rooms in a colonial building. The location is not bad, but it is too noisy arounf the hotel, try to get a room in the back. Mini bar is not replaced daily, and resturant and room service menus are very limited..

The hotel is nice but has the worst staff

I arrived to the hotel at 2:00 PM after a long trip, the hotel was obviously not full and they still would not give us a room until 3:00. You can tell the room was ready because the hotel has a central patio and all the rooms are visible. No one came out of any of the rooms and they still made us wait. Every single member in the hotel wanted to make extra money on every occasion they had it got really annoying. My wife asked the concierge for a hair salon near by and they said nothing was available, they made us choose the one they offered. They gave us an estimate, my wife had the service and then they wanted to charge twice what they initially said. The people from the hair salon told me their shop was located 1 block away from the hotel, they walked to the hotel and the bell boy wanted to charge $50 dollars for a taxi. They were trying to steal money in every chance they had. When I checked out they had additional charges made in the bar that I did not consume, they were very rude about it, I demanded to see my signature on the tickets and refused to pay for drinks and food I did not have. They finally subtracted that from the bill but again they wanted to charge extra fees and extra money for everything. Overall terrible service and hospitality. The hotel is located in downtown Mexico CIty it is nice around there for a historic tour, the only negative part is that on Sunday we could not get a taxi because all the streets were closed. That made it even worse.

Very nice hotel in heart of DF

I stayed at Boutique Hotel de Cortes for 3 days while in Mexico City on business. The hotel is inside an old baroque-type building. It is a small hotel with very friendly staff and well appointed rooms. The rooms have very modern finishes. I loved the stand-up rainfall shower and that the bed was very comfortable. Lastly, I highly recommend the guacamole in the restaurant/bar.
