8/10 Very good

The hotel was close to key locations. The staff were very friendly and the room was very clean. The negatives are that the beds are extremely hard and there was a lot of noise at night.

Clean reasonably priced rooms, no view and quite loud when people are in the Atrium area outside your room. Great location

We enjoyed our 2 days at Hotel Principal. Located right in the center of the city. Couple blocks walking distance from Zocalo and many fine restaurants. Great room and view to center of city. Rooms are nice and very roomy. Staff is on hand for any assistance. Totally recommended. We stay with our family of 6.

6/10 Good

Had to try it at least once
It was good, location was great. Reception staff very helpful, elevator a plus! The only downside was having no fan or AC in unit. window, was good only if you didn't mind flying insects biting you. Noisy at times with window open and courtyard in the middle.

10/10 Exceptional

El trato de las personas en recepción fue muy amable y muy atento todo el tiempo. Organizamos mi despedida de soltera y el peinado y maquillaje para mi y mis damas en la terraza sin ningún problema. El personal del hotel es maravilloso, desde recepción hasta limpieza. El desayuno está buenísimo para el precio que dan. Es un hotel muy sencillo pero tiene lo básico. Mis invitados de boda, familia y amigos estuvimos muy cómodos aquí.
