We have stay there for 2 days. The rooms are adequate in size. I find this hotel to be a little dirty for being so new. The first day the security guard was being obnoxious, he wouldn't leave us alone I guess needed a tip so my wife took out 50 pesos and gave it to him so we can get rid of the him. I suspected that the seats weren't changed because it didn't smell fresh and were wrinkled. It was a towel hanging in the bathroom and I examined it and I found it to have some kind of Mark on it what the hair I mean we just got there so wasn't I hear from us. The carpet was too back to my think because it was a little dirty. Things got interesting the next morning when we woke up we went downstairs for the free breakfast we got there before the shutdown an hour which is 10 a.m. and there was hardly any warm food there was a very little serving of scrambled eggs and there was a lady that work there standing in the area and I asked her if it was going to be more for us to have. She said that we could probably share it. So that's what we did so it was just enough both of us it was now 10 a.m. that's the time when they supposedly close the dining area. Some people came in and she was more friendly to them and ask them if they wanted more eggs so a few minutes went by and your comes another freshly made eggs that made me a little pissed off. Because the big fat lady never offered to make some eggs for us. So I told my wife just get me more and serve me a lot. I left those eggs hardly touched and walked away. The price of this hotel room is not cheap for being Mexico. You would suspect that people their native people could hardly afford to stay here. That's it for my review I'm neither disappointed or happy to have stayed at the city Express Hotel.

If you are arriving just for business and maybe if you are introverted maybe..but just maybe you would like this hotel. You can find a ridiculous meals and an small gym, the basic amenities like WiFi, TV, climate, and cleaning rooms

I travel a lot more than the 'Average Joe'. Do you see the word play there? :) This location is nice, and has all the amenities you're going to want with a good location. The mattresses are a little firm for my liking. I'm not a fan of their breakfast but who are we kidding? You should be able to find a decent breakfast spot restaurant near.

I've stayed in four different hotels in Mexico, and this one is definitely the best when all things are considered: price, cleanliness, service, amenities, noise level, and so on. Really, I had no complaints about this place at all, though I will say some of their breakfast offerings were a bit random (tortilla chips and Romaine lettuce?) and very little is labeled (is that shredded coconut or shredded cheese?). One nice touch about this place is that they use a lot of compostable or otherwise earth-friendly products at their breakfast buffet. If location is a consideration, City Express is very close to a lot of Hermosillo's attractions, like its oldest restaurant (Restaurant Xochimilco) and Plaza Zaragoza. For people used to U.S. or Canadian hotels, be warned that City Express has much firmer mattresses than you're used to. I had no problem sleeping on them--in fact, I got some very good, restful sleep--but for some that might be a deal-breaker. I think these firmer mattresses are pretty standard in Mexico, so if you insist on softer ones, try the Hampton Inn to the east of this place.

Sometimes you have the time to take risks and find something local, but sometimes you have to play it safe and City Express was a safe choice. The room was very cozy, my kids loved the place so much that they wanted to stay another night even though there was no pool. It's business oriented but my family enjoyed the stay. Free wifi and parking. Weather was favorable so we didn't need to use the AC at all. My only problem was that I booked through and they didn't seem to have registered my reservation at all, but it was a non-issue because they did respect the discount offered with no questions asked.

This hotel is well located close to downtown and with easy access to main roads. The rooms are clean and well lit. the bathrooms clean as well. Breakfast is better than a continental breakfast but OK for a quick morning meal. Front desk people, security guard and personnel in general were very courteous and helpful. It is a good hotel for its price range and location. Would use it again.

when you pay with your credit card you expect to get the service contracted for, in this case a 4 star hotel experience was purchased, not a one star hotel experience. i have preserved ALL of the voluminous correspondence via email that i had with aeromexico and gran plan about the fraud, false promises non delivered in this package as proof my good will to work this out with them in vain. I can email you them if you so desire. Here are the points embellishing my attestation of part of this charge: 1. I had manager "Lucio" to my room to point out that there was a CONSTANT water leak of sewage over the commode, thus making its use prohibitive, not to mention unsanitary in the utmost. Obviously a 4 star hotel does not have sewage leaking on their guests! 2. "Switch and Bait" on their aeromexico advertising a free pickup within 10 k. of their hotel, and the airport was within 5 k. of the airport by their own admission in their advertising. I specifically ! took this hotel for this pickup which was refused later, as told to me by manager Lucio. My email correspondence with them backs this up if you want me to email you this. 3. I showed Lucio that there was mold in the bathroom unbecoming to a 4 star hotel experience which I had paid for., 4. Upon arrival no keys were available, one had to be escorted to the room by the security guard, like a prison, and if one left the room, re escorted back to the room by him, every day they claimed their key machine would work, but it never did. No hotel has no keys for the individual rooms, I have never seen this in a lifetime of travel. This was quite debilitating and demeaning. One felt as in prison ! Not a 4 star hotel experience I had paid for. Obviously this hotel had so many deficiencies that it really needed to close its doors and have a renovation done immediately. I contracted to have a 4 star stay, not les lack of provided service and lack of provided taxi service they advertise when I bought their package: further points: 5. nights get very cold there, their heater in the room did not work , pointed out to Lucio, and emitted a terrible mold smell which made it so that no one could use it to heat or for any purpose. 6. this in total was NOT a 4 star property as i bought and they fraudulently advertised but rather it was really a one star hotel experience. 6. no 4 star hotel package was given but rather fraudulently, they "bait and switch" to get you in and then torture you with no keys, mold, sewage leaking into the room from above non stop, and on we go; 7. manager Lucio told me on 12./ 15. 12 at 3 15 pm at the front desk that they advertise free shuttle service to and from the airport on their ad but then dont provide it in any form, they forced me to take an expensive cab and defrauded me out of the service i paid for with this card therewith; 8. i had contracted for a non smoking room but i had to contend with cig and marijuana smoke coming non stop into my room from other rooms i assume and this was very disastrous for my 9.11. asthma/airway reactive disease., one could not wait to leave this hell hole of a establishment and they defrauded me in so many ways by promising one thing and then not delivering on it; i have the managers name Lucio and i have the emails i wrote denouncing their fraud as proof ; ; service not given

El hotel es excelente en lo que compete al descanso para viajeros Sus camas son buenas Las habitaciones con su fuente espacio, los servicios en general muy bien Muy recomendable para gente de negocios

Todos ya sabemos de la infraestructura de los hoteles City Express, prácticamente son lo mismo en todos lados en el país, lo único que podría diferenciar a cada uno es el servicio de cada uno de ellos y el lugar en el cual se encuentran. Y este se encuentra a unos 600 metros del centro de la ciudad, a espaldas se encuentra un centro comercial, al cual se puede ir a desayunar.

En general todo bien excepto 3 cosas: la cortina del baño estaba rota, el desayuno no tiene buenas opciones y es insípido y no hay bellboy. Por lo que respecta a la reservación fue muy rápida por Internet.
