Clean and comfortable
Great hotel that was clean and comfortable. Location was decent but could be closer to downtown and Roma norte district. Amazing street food just outside the hotel. Hotel staff did not spend much English

It is a very cute boutique hotel that is clean and very close to reforma. I recommend the comfort rooms since they are much bigger than the basic.

You probably get more than what you paid for
It feels like a more upscaling/expensive hotel. The mattress is a little uncomfort though
JAVIER, us2 night trip
Basic Hotel
Place is nice. I don’t like the fact that I can’t bring not even water to my room. I understand you want to keep the place nice and neat. But good people can eat or drink something without spill. I was in one of the “upgraded” rooms and. Bathrooms and the lamps in the room weren’t working. Also the shower to me is not functional since because the shower doesn’t have a door, it spills all over the place. It would be nice to have better choices for breakfast. Specially for health conscious people. Since I wasn’t able to eat anything of what they gave except for a little tiny bowl of fruit. Mexico’s supplies for cooking are extremely cheap. So natural orange juice should be a most in the hotel instead of the carton “punch juice” fill with sugar and no nutrients.
