Used this hotel as a home base for my family coming from San Diego, CA for the wedding. We booked three rooms for over the weekend, and could not have been more pleased.
Rooms and bathrooms are very clean. Each room had its own AC unit, TV, and the room with two double beds served as a meeting place for us all. (It was the most spacious and open!)
Service is top notch, each employee we encountered was attentive and met our requests. As a smaller hotel, my parents - who don't indulge very often - felt that this hotel was so nice and "exclusive," which means a lot!
We ate breakfast each morning we had free, and while it took some time for our plates to come out, everyone had a tasty dish (my dad ordered the campesinos plate twice!).
Locale is great, very near El Zocalo, el Parian for shopping... quick taxi ride anywhere else.

... be the most laid back and relaxed city in all of Mexico. Most of what holds interest for tousrits can be found in the historical area which stretches for a few blocks in each direction around the World Heritage Zocalo (Central Square). I spent the day wandering around the area having a look in the cathedral, churches and a few museums as well as wandering through a few of the markets. The city streets were just so ...
... to the driver's friends for a quick mugging! I hid valuables in various crevices of my clothing, but nothing happened of course. On the way back, I was a little worried, because I only had an out of date guidebook entry and the first driver's assurance that there would be frequent return buses that I could flag down outside the site! I did have to wait a for a nerve-racking 20 minutes, but again, everything was fine in the end. It was an interesting experience, ...
... of which is valued more than a servant's life. Pre-hispanic. There were frescoes inside the pyramids. One of them showed the warring jaguar and serpent God-warriors. The jaguar God was predicted to come back, coincidentally at the same time when Cortes and his men showed up. The Spaniards were thus mistaken for Gods. Hence the defeat and colonisation of a sophisticated civilization.
From Cacaxtla, one can see another pyramid atop a nearby ...
