    My go to accommodation when I am in CDMX. I had a private room with a balcony and city view. Close to the cathedral, metro and many restaurants.

    Great room, excellent water pressure, great beds, and super clean. You can't beat the location. It's close to every attraction downtown with great museums, galleries, and the subway. The price and safety are an added value.

    Great location and value, by Zocolo and metro, but not a loud street.. Pleasant common areas with tiny balconies. Street food nearby. Many staff do not speak much English but are patient with poor Spanish. They have good front door security. And...
