This is the most exquisite property: from the roof deck pool and night life, (best ceviche verde ever!) to the 400 year old building surrounding the sleeping quarters, all under an open roof! The staff was beyond accommodating, wanting only to please and with head gear to communicate with each other to meet the needs of their guests from the various levels of the building itself. Our one complaint was our room’s air conditioner hadn’t been cleaned and was so loud my husband insisted on switching rooms, only to discover the musty concrete smell of the new room could t be alleviated without air and time. Hard to address at midnight and a long day in the city. So, not a restful night but the staff was as helpful as possible and the morning breakfast and environment was superb! I wish we could have stayed more nights here! We will return!

Beautiful historic hotel in the heart of the Central Historic District. The hotel is small with a lot of individual attention from the staff. The rooms were comfortable and cozy. Breakfasts were sumptuous. The restaurants in the hotel prepared amazing food - including the lovely roof top bar and pool. I can't wait to return!

Everyone was in incredibly nice and helpful. We were treated like royalty

I had an amazing time. The restaurants are good. The roomservice is great. Rooms are beautiful too.

Best hotel in the area maybe a little bit noisy we stayed at room 9. Decoration is great, bed are very confy (I'm very hard on high quality linens) I loved that you are blocks away from anything you need to see downtown Great food

We loved staying at the Hotel Downtown Mexico DF. It was perfectly located to all major attractions, we couldn't have asked for a better location which was the motivating factor in choosing this hotel, The hotel itself is just one facet of a cozy complex that houses a number of restaurants and shops including Azul (excellent restaurant), Padrinos, several artisinal shops for gourmet food, art, handicrafts and jewelry. The architecture is really remarkable as this is all housed in some historical monastery or something. The rooms are perfectly comfortable, however mine had very limited natural light and very low wattage bulbs to fill a cavernous room with 20ft ceilings. No matter, we were spending most of our time exploring beautiful and wonderful Mexico City. We will definitely be back.

This is a magic city, but Downtown hotel is a secret palace just in the performance of an incredible historic scene. Feel the incredible service inside a little and beautiful mall. You´re gonna love it !

great hotel, amazing location, very good interior design

The hotel is located in a great location for the historic center. There is a nice rooftop terrace bar and pool, partially covered, and not very well advertised to tourists so pleasantly quiet during the week and busy with locals on the weekend. The rooms come with ear plugs in case you try to go to bed early on the weekend as the roof top bar can be loud. Our bed was very comfortable. Excellent breakfast menu. Pleasant and helpful staff. We will be back. Wouldn't recommend it for families with children.

We stayed here on Sep. 15th for the Mexican Independence celebration. The hotel is a perfect location for those wanting to be close to Mexico City's Down Town or "Zocalo". The hotel staff were friendly. Although checkin is at 3:00 we arrived at 4:00. Unfortunately the room was still not ready. The staff put us in the lobby to wait and provided free drinks while we waited for our room to be ready... We stayed in the Revolutionary Suite which is their nicest suite and The room was spectacular!!! A mix of Colonial and Modernness and Huge!!! The price was reasonable as well!!! Plenty of restaurants around and shops to buy things in. They also have a nice terrace area on the roof with a pool and outdoor bar. The rooms have no Air-conditioning or or heating so your comfort depends on the elements... Noise is an issue in the rooms since the hotel is purely of concrete construction. But they do know about this and earplugs are provided in the rooms. Over all it was a great experience and the hotel is very beautiful and perfectly fits the scene of colonial downtown Mexico City... We will definitely be staying there again!
