Hotel Amigo Zocalo

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The location was central to cathedral and federal buildings, but terrifying in the evening. It was very scary and the doors to the hotel had to be kept locked. The taxi driver informed us that people would get assaulted in that area.

Please, save yourself a living nightmare at this hostel! Room looked and felt dirty. Shower was very difficult to operate. Window was broken , so a bunch of mosquitos flew right inside bathroom/room. My daughter"s face had llike 10 mosquito bites. Everyday we smelled the sewer pipes, it was so gross! I won't recommend this hostel to anyone. First floor rooms 1-3, Lots of noise too from the lobby, it was like an echo!

They claimed to not have a reservation for me, and claimed unable to accommodate me because they had no more rooms.

Well it's more than a cheap hotel, front desk were very polity and helpful, the hotel facilities are great, the only problem that I found is that the floor were I was had maintenance issues so was not A/C in my room, beyond that was a placed stayed.

Internet cuts in and out all day and night. However room is very central and close to everything

This hotel is a good middle between a hostel and a higher end hotel. Its location in the Zocalo is basically the best an adventurous traveler can ask for, right between the main cathedral, palace, and Templo Mayor ruins, next to a 7/11 convenient store and 100 meters from Mexicos City Metro system which is as effective and safe as many parts of the United States. The Hostel can get loud at night, has wifi that goes on and off. The beds are moderately comfortable.

I booked a room with a queen bed. when I got there they gave me A room with two twin bed next to the reception desk, which was not to my liking. On the next day before 6:00am people on reception were too loud that keep me awake. additionally; the safe in the room was not working.

Everything else lacked. Dirty room. Dirty as in long black hairs in the sheets when the covers where removed from the bed. Slept above the covers fully clothed. Toilet had a leak that kept the bathroom floor soaked all the time.

After a bad experience in another hotel this people help me get a good clean and comfortable room. I called them and they let me do and early check in. it is true I had to pay half of the rate but I was able to take a good sleep!!!!

Good location is the only nice thing. Rooms are noisy. In the daytime you hear the vendors outside. They should invest in sound proofing their rooms. You can hear people in the corridors or talking in the rooms, snores, flushing toilets and (worst) banging of the doors. Breakfast is free but that is nothing memorable.
