Fodor's Expert Review One Ciudad de México Alameda

Juarez 88, Mexico City, Quintana Roo, 06600, Mexico See on Map

A central location across from the Alameda Central is the main selling point for this serviceable hotel, opened in March 2014. Catering to business travelers on a budget, this property features cordial service and clean, functional rooms decorated with black-and-white historical photographs and pops of bright colors, plus parquet floors and marble baths. A breakfast buffet is served daily in the simple Ikea-style café area on the ground floor, where the carnivalesque music of the city's ever-present organ grinders wafts in from the street; a small outdoor patio off the lobby with a (fake) ivy-covered wall is a nice place to sit and work, while taking advantage of the free Wi-Fi available throughout the property.

room

Small but tidy and modern. Ask for one not facing the street or noise could be an issue.

bathroom

Well-designed for their tiny size.

lobby

Bright and welcoming, with several tables and chairs ideal for catching up on emails in a more spacious environment than your room.

dining

Complimentary breakfasts are crowded but the staff keeps everything well-stocked. No other on-site dining is available after breakfast.

LOCATION

Getting Around

While conveniently located, neighboring Alameda Park can be a bit shady at night, so take cars after dark. Traffic in the Centro Histórico can be dense, so walking is your best bet.

Restaurants

Mercado San Juan (12-minute walk) is a traditional market specializing in exotic and imported ingredients; market stands offer tacos with fillings like armadillo and scorpion. Meson del Cid (4-minute walk) has for decades been considered one of the city's best Spanish restaurants. Tortas El Cuadrilátero (10-minute walk) is a wrestling-themed torta stand that's fun for kids.

Bars

El Bósforo (6-minute walk) is one of the city's coolest mezcal bars. Located in the area's small Chinatown, Cantina El Tío Pepe is a classic old-school cantina.

WHY WE LIKE IT

A great bargain option for the area. The location on the edge of the Centro Histórico gives better proximity to trendy Juárez and Roma Norte neighborhoods than other Centro hotels.
