I stayed at the Gran Hotel Cuidad de Mexico for four night's at the beginning of January in a Junior Suite. The hotel is lovely - exactly like the photos on the internet - with its two deco cage lifts and stunning stained glass and cast iron ceiling. There was birdsong echoing around the mezzanine as I walked to my room, which I thought was being piped through a sound system until I found the two antique bird cages filled with canaries next to one of the elevators.
The location is fabulous - right on the south west corner of the plaza - and my room (number 201) faces onto the square with the huge Metropolitan Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary of Mexico City on the left, the Palacio Nacional straight ahead and the Federal District buildings to the right.
My room (#201) has a huge four poster bed and is decorated in keeping with the style of the hotel with period wall paper, reproduction side tables and cabinet, a gilded oval mirror on the wall next to the desk and botanical prints on the wall. The bathroom is a good size and decorated in similar retro style to the bedroom, there's a mini bar, safe and free wifi in the room. For less than $140 a night, this has got to be one of the best value for money hotels in Mexico City. Highly recommended.

We were tired enough to get to sleep before 11, but I ended up waking up before 3 am, with visions of an airport packed with holiday travelers. So we hopped to it and caught the 3:30 shuttle to the airport down the street, where we found a long line in front of the Southwest counter, all right. The problem was no one was even on duty until almost 4 …
... the best option to see the sights in an afternoon, not have to walk too much or use the underground. So Gustavo left us there and we arranged to meet again at the end of the tour. We sat on the open-top bus with our cameras like real tourists (well I did anyway!) in the sunshine. It was really lovely. We still managed to have a good chat (yes more chatting but we do have years to catch up on, we haven't seen each other much in the past few years!) but also got to see all ...

La mise en place de l'offrande a ses règles : on met en place une sorte d'autel (forme la plus courante) et on le décore avec beaucoup de cempasúchil ["sème-pa-sous-tchil" - mot de la langue Náhuatl (langue ...
