We had a great time

I will stay here again if I come back to Mexico City. The front desk is competent in English, if lacking full proficiency (advanced or full proficiency in English in Mexico City is a near-instant ticket to a better-paying job in the tourist industry than most hotel jobs). The hotel was spotless. The breakfast buffet was more than adequate. The staff were all focused on making sure we had a good time, and after you've stayed in a number of hotels in this price range, you come to expect less commitment than was clearly evident at this hotel. The location is one block (45 seconds walk) from the main square (Zocalo), and although there are no views of the square, there is no noise from it, either. We spent most of our vacation walking around the center and exploring the area. The rooms are modern and, if not as large as they might be, are quite comfortable. The bathrooms are done in tile and frosted glass. My wife and I really can't say enough good things about the cleaning service. It's simply a great place to stay, and possibly the best value-for-money hotel booking my wife and I have ever made.

Nice hotel

We spent 3 nights in the beginning of November. This hotel's location is perfect. It is one block from the Zocalo - the heart of historic center. It's close enough but you can't hear a noise from the square. It was important because Mexico celebrated Día de muertos ("Day of the Dead") when we stayed there.Their breakfast buffet was served up on the top floor and was very good. Free WiFi was very useful too.

Great location- Everything is in walking distance

The whole staff was great. Things needed attention in the room, but were taken care of quickly. I can't wait to stay there again next year.

Hit and miss, but overall good

Five night stay in July 2012. Room was fine, but looked into light shaft that always kept room dim. Bed very comfortable. Daily room servicing was not well done. They often forgot my room and I had to go to front desk to get situation addressed. Front desk staff pleasant and helpful. Stay away from restaurant on 5th floor. It is just bad food and service. Quite disappointing. Location is PERFECT--one block to Zocalo. Money changer next to hotel has best rates I found--better than what ATM offered.

Great situation

The hotel could not be more central. One block from Zocalo and the Metro. The hotel is modern and efficient. Curiously like much of Mexico City few of the desk staff spoke competent English but made up for it with their enthusiasm.

Great place in the historical district

We were in Mexico City for a wedding. This was one of the hotels the couple suggested. We were glad it was in the historical district and close to everything we needed.

A great hotel in the heart of old Mexico

The hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly. There is a bank with an ATM directly across the street. It is also very close (less than one block) to the old center of Mexico City. Lots to do during the day in terms of shopping. Private taxis are always available and tours leave from the hotel daily. Not the best location for business travelers but great for tourism. The room was pretty quiet since the street it is on is not a through street. The only reason this hotel did not get 5 stars from me is that the A/C system is not really an A/C system. It's more of an air circulator. When you turn on the "A/C" the system, it is on until you turn it off. There is no automatic temperature control.

For authentic tacos there is a little hole in the wall on the southeast of the cathedral. 5 pesos per taco and your choice between 5 different types of tacos. A bit greasy but very good!

Modern hotel in the center of historic Mexico City

NH Centro Historico is a very modern hotel in the center of everything. It's a block from El Zocalo--close to Palacio Nacional & La Catedral Metropolitana. The restaurant served a nice breakfast buffet. The hotel room had hardwood floors, 3 phones, WiFi access for a fee, and a minibar. The hotel will arrange for airport transportation as well as sell tickets for Ballet Folklorico. The onsite Starbucks was extremely convenient.

The hotel restaurant had a great breakfast, and there were many restaurants within a block or two of the hotel. The 7 Eleven across the street was very convenient and I visited many times.
