8/10 Very good

Almost scored a perfect!
Great location in the historic zone. The cafe serves great snacks free for guests. I would have rated this as almost a 10 but was disappointed with my room. It had a window the size of a prison cell’s!

Loved it
Wonderful! Second time staying here and I still cannot believe the value for money in my favorite part of the city. Location is amazing, free breakfast on the balcony overlooking the Cathedral is awesome, and the staff are super helpful and friendly. Room was small as you would expect in city center, but attractive, comfortable, and functional. Looking forward to returning!

Zócalo central is hands down the best hotel I’ve ever stayed at. Service was amazing- the staff were extremely helpful, welcoming, and kind. They gave us a lot of tips, helped us book tours, and always acknowledged us and made time to talk with us throughout our stay. The breakfast buffet that was included with our stay was delicious and made our trip super convenient- there’s not a lot open from 8-11am. There’s a limited bar in the reception that was also included and was a life saver between tours- we were able to get snacks, salads, sandwiches, beer, and juice. Overall an amazing hotel that was carefully thought out. I highly recommend staying here.

Awesome place to stay in central CDMX!
Zócalo Central Hotel is such a great place to stay in the Centro Historico! You really can't beat the views from the rooftop restaurant, and the breakfast there was delicious. The rooms are small (European-style), but that's totally normal for a huge city in my experience. The hotel was very clean and they provided free bottled water on each floor, which was nice. We did a tour through the hotel to visit Teotihuacan, and we had so much fun! The hotel is very walkable with great access to all the sights in the historic center, and it's only about 1.5 miles from the Roma Norte, La Condesa, and Juarez neighborhoods where there are tons of restaurants, cafes, bars, parks, and cool places to explore. We'd definitely stay here again and recommend it highly!

Breakfast with a View!
Great experience at Zocalo Central! The absolute highlight was breakfast on the rooftop restaurant overlooking the Cathedral -- food and views were both top notch!

4 nights in Mexico City
I loved my stay here. I opted for a junior suite and the room was beautiful and had a view of the square. The bed was incredibly comfortable and made for an incredibly restful night. The staff thought of absolutely everything you could need with regard to toiletries, water, coffee, and beverages in the fridge. I also enjoyed the 24 hour cafe. It was incredibly helpful on some late nights. The breakfast on the rooftop was incredible. The food options were delicious and plentiful and the view and service was top notch. My only issue was the area frequently has roads blocked off and that made it somewhat difficult to get a taxi to other areas. I would stay here again in a heartbeat, though.

Best experience in Mexico City!
Best hotel to stay in historic center of Mexico City, walking distance to all cultural sites and tour buses. Hotel staff went above and beyond to make our stay special. 5 star service and rooms, bar and restaurant. Rooftop restaurant has service and views unparalleled. Front desk, manager and staff very professional and friendly. Special thanks to our concierge, Mr Fernando Munuzun for booking all our unique restaurant experiences. Thanks for the great time in Mexico City. Will definitely be back!
