The city does have a reputation for being dangerous but we felt completely safe there walking around, although we didn’t spend too much time at night walking around. There were LOTS of fully armed policemen around too.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Del Principado Mexico City
Günstig, sauber, nett und zentral gelegen
Wir waren drei Nächte dort und erhielten für wenig Geld einen sehr guten Service. Zimmer geräumig und sauber, umfangreiches Frühstücksbuffet, recht zentral in der Zona Rosa gelegen. Würden wieder hin.
Staff listens: we requested "hacia el Patio" for quiet and the receptionist obliged.
I stayed with my partner at Hotel del Principado for a whole week in Sept. 2006 and paid around $55 a day for a good-size double room and breakfast included. The hotel is an excellent choice. It has been totally refurbished and the rooms are stylish and by no doubt have a 4-star standard - wooden floors, beautiful wooden furniture, amenities, etc. I particularly liked the details such as the cleanliness, the water pressure in the shower, the large mirror and the quality of the mattress (it was totally new). Our rate included a large daily buffet breakfast, which I found of a very high quality. We were even asked if we had special requirements or were on any special diet. The restaurant also offers lunch and dinner menus for about $8 (we discovered it was a much better choice than the more expensive restaurants of the Zona Rosa). The atmosphere was quiet (very important in a crazy place like Mexico City) and the staff were very kind and helpful. They provided us with all information we needed such as tourist locations, tips to move around and great places to go out. Other aspects which make this hotel an excellent choice are the wi-fi internet access and the small business centre. Security measures are first world standards (CCTV and smoke detectors, electronic locks, etc). We felt very safe in the hotel as well as in the area, which is close to the Zona Rosa and Reforma Avenue. We have been to other hotels in Mexico City and I can certainly say Hotel del Principado is our first choice.
A great find
This is a great clean hotel with decent size rooms, a friendly staff, breakfast, and a great rate. I had a noisy german family of three generations across the hall from me in two rooms who usually left their doors open and constantly and noisily moved from room to room. There was not anything the hotel could do about it. i walked to and from the hotel at all hours of the day and night and felt totally safe in the area. I strongly recommend it.
The hotel is in the Zona Rosa within walking distance of Polanco, Bosque de Chalputepec, el Zocalo, Roma and Condesa.
I recently stayed at this hotel and found the staff friendly and helpful. However, the most attractive features of this hotel was it's cleanliess, quiet atmosphere and location. I will stay at this hotel everytime I go to Mexico City. If you want an inexpensive, clean room in the heart of the action, this is the best place.
I stayed at the Principado in the Zona Rosa districk of Mexico City last January. What a bargain for $40.00 per night including taxes and a breakfast buffet. My room was on the 1st floor and had been completely remodeled. A nice size clean room with a king bed and hardwood floors, big TV, etc. A nice all tile bath with a wonderful shower.
The location is about 4 blocks to the subway and so convenient to many shops, discos, restaurants in the gay Zona Rosa area. I consider the area to be very safe. I will be staying there for sure on my next visit to one of the biggest cities in the world.
Estuve en El Principado, en el distrito de Zona Rosa de Ciudad de México, el pasado mes de enero. ¡Qué negocio por 40.00 dólares por noche, incluyendo impuestos y un buffet del desayuno! Mi habitación estaba en el 1º piso y había sido remodelado totalmente. Una habitación limpia, de tamaño agradable, con una cama de rey y los suelos de madera maciza, una TV grande, etc. Un agradable baño, todo de azulejos y con una ducha maravillosa.
Se ubica a casi 4 manzanas del metro y muy cómodo para las tiendas, discotecas y restaurantes en la zona gay de Zona Rosa. Considero que la zona es muy segura. Seguro que me quedaré allí en mi próxima visita a una de las ciudades más grandes del mundo.
Good price...good to stay for budget travelers
very good relation cost-profit...and excelent location..
for the same price (USD 40-45 each day) i cant found another better...
Low price, great service, gay fun
what a great ubication hotel del principado, in the gay zone mexico city, the price was inexpensive , less than $39 p/night including breakfast. the staff was very nice and good attitudde.
no doubt, ill be back there next spring.
I paid $400 for 12 nights. I think this is pretty reasonable. I was very close to all the gay clubs in the Zona Rosa. It included breakfast. My room had a king size bed and a private bathroom. The only thing was that there was construction going on that would start at about 8am everyday. This got really anoying and they did nothing about it when I complained.
Overall, it was a good place for the price. I would stay there again if I returned to Mexico City. The locaion really is the best thing about this hotel. Other hotels in this area are much more expensive.
