DAY 1 - Austin, Texas to Mexico City, Mexico Left Austin early to catch the connection to Houston before boarding the smallest plane we've ever been on. Two seats, an aisle, one seat. It was bumpy but we lived. Arrived in Mexico City a little excited and waited our place in line for immigration. The guy in front of us in the queue looked like a …

Mexico City, the capital of mexico - Ciudad de México, Distrito Federal Mexico
Today was my second full day in Mexico City. My body clock still hasn't changed over so I was up at 2:30am roaming the halls of my hotel. I have been a little unwell in the stomach which seems to have eased this evening. So where to start.... I caught a group tour from my hotel. I was greeted by a very happy English speaking guide could Raphael & our driver Martin. I was joined by an older couple from Florida but who originally lived in Argentina. The wife spoke English well ...
... of box-hedging, and a few trees plonked here and there. It was like a mini maze weaving itself around. As we were sitting on a park bench in the garden i noticed a little furry brown animal making it's way down the tree and trough the mini maze. "Mum, Dad, what's that?" I asked. "Where?" Mum said. "There!" I yelled pointing to the little creature. "Oh, wow!" Dad ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Camino Real Mexico City
I have to say, I was a little hesitant about staying here after reading some of the scathing reviews on this site. Especially because I am very picky and have zero tolerance for poor service. But thankfully my fears were completely unfounded. I came here with my husband and our 19 month old son for our first family vacation --- and we all had a fabulous time!
The worse food
I had been in Mexico about 7 times in the past 2 years. I have always stayed in the Presidente and Marriot. In my last trip I thought I would like to change and go to a new hotel, for my surprise this hotel can even come close to the Presidente and worse the Marriot Hotel.
It was very expensive for the food and service quality. I would never come back to this hotel. I am very disappointed and left a very bad taste in my mouth.
after viewing the movie "frida", i wanted to visit mexico city in search of all things "frida". my husband lives in washington, dc and i live in st. louis, mo. we had a long 3 day weekend which included valentines day. we thought mexico city would be a great place to meet and spend valentines day and look for "frida". a travel article appeared in the 'washington flyer" magazine that promotes air travel in and out of the 3 d.c. area airports. the previous week in the "flyer" featured mexico city and the camino real. it sounded great, my husband and i could spend a nice romantic weekend together and "frida" was close by.
ARchitecturally significant, but cold, hard public spaces could be just fine if the hotel had even minimal public relations. On a four night stay in February, 2004 the hotel erected a wedding tent completely in front of our second floor garden-view room during the first full day of our stay. The incompetent front desk manager was actually off the property when I came to attempt to arrange a satisfactory solution and then was forced to finally admit she had been absent. She offered no satisfactory solution even though the hotel was not full. The tent, and the debris and litter and disorganization from the wedding was still there on Monday when we left. I wrote several of the Camino Real execs and have never received a single reply from them or the hotel. The hotel is not located in a good shopping area and has serious management issues--aside from being totally nonresponsive to a legitimate complaint. The hotel also has no bathtubs. There is virtually no public seating outside of bars or restaurants. The business center has highly variable personnel and only three slow-connection computers and only one of those doesn't require climbing steep steps. The pool has virtually no bar/restaurant service at all. They will only call "hotel" taxis with a 100 peso ($9.50US) minimum fare, and then if you charge it to your room charge 7% on top of THAT, regardless of your destination. But, the biggest item is the clearly deficient management. Most of the service help is wonderful, but in a problem, those aren't the folks you get to deal with. Stay away from this one.
The Camino Real is a lovely hotel, beautiful architecture and with a convenient location. But, the service was so bad that what at first was incredibly annoying became funny. It couldn't possibly have gotten any worse. Every request made to the front desk or concierge was met with a huge smile and an "of course, right away" response. And then nothing was done. Ever. No car met us at the airport. Nothing was organized for our tuxedo rentals. We were woken up with fruit delivered to the room even though the Do Not Disturb sign was displayed. We had turn down service once during 4 nights. We received no messages from friends and they did not receive ours. Construction (jack-hammering concrete) was being done on the floor above our Jr. suite until 7:00p (we didn't change rooms as it was our last evening). The front desk was so suprised that we could hear it. What I couldn't hear was the TV! How they could place guests in a wing under major reconstruction is beyond me.
Great hotel! We took advantage of their internet specials and had wonderfully large rooms with kingsize beds, large beautiful bathroom overlooking a small courtyard, in room safe. Very quiet, great service- everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. Use their business center for checking emails instead of the inroom internet service via the TV which is cumbersome to use and much more expensive since you have to pay a flat rate for 24 hours vs the business center PC use - you only pay for the time you are on the computer.
Great value for the price. Beatiful rooms and really quiet if room not near the street. Everyone there was extremley accomodating and helpful.
The restaurants are great too!
Great weekend deals. Ask for free upgrade to executive suites like we did and you may get it if they are not very full. Great service. Ask consierge for phone # for taxi service to avoid the high prices charged by the one's the hotel has out front.
Great for Business Travellers
I stayed at Camino Real for one week in March, being there for business reasons and staying felt as if I was on vacations. We didn´t even want to leave the hotel at night because of its great restaurants (especially Le Cirque is excellent!) and bars (try China Grill). The pool area is very nice, I had a swim every morning. The Business Suites are nice, newly decorated and very quiet. Excellent service. The only thing did not like and why I restrained from giving the rating "Excellent" was the breakfast room which I think needs a little re-decoration, reminding too much of the seventies.
Nice city hotel, excellent service
Camino Real is a nice hotel with all the amenities you can expect from a 5 start hotel. Service is excellent, rooms and bathrooms are roomy and nicely decorated, just keep in mind decor is all minimalist and modern, if you like a warm and cozy enviroment this is not the place. The hotel as a good variaty of dinning options which results very convenient. The lobby bar is beautiful and original: its floor is a glass over water and most nights they have live music.
