So Un-Mexican!

I don't know what we were expecting... but I guess we hadn't done our research on the city itself!

We loved exploring this stunning city... from old to older and very new. Having been to other parts of Mexico, we were so excited about the variety of great international food... that might seem counter-intuitive, but after tacos de cualquier …

... sell beers by the bucket. 2 Corona’s are poured into a huge cup for 60 pesos. Much better than lite beer at and ACDC concert in Sydney!!



More Tips for travellers:

  1. Take the security cabs from the airport. You buy your ticket just outside the baggage claim after passing migration. Trip to the City Centre (Zocalo) costs 165 pesos ($13AUD);

  2. Mexico City and beyond!

    ... floating along behind us! We were entertained by a marriachi band (i'm sure that's not how you spell ir!) and much tequila was consumed. I'm very glad I only had a small amount, as a few others had way way too much and it was not pretty on the bus ride home! Next it was off to Puebla, a quaint town with more churches and museums! The main square was really nice, manicured gardens and we started to see Day of the Dead ...

Granted, she has been a model householder, but I thank Jehovah's organization for providing such simple and effective tools.

Ok, besides all that preaching, studying and meetings, we did have some fun too. With the mind to encourage some of the ...

... get me to buy stuff and he shook his head in bemusement as he shuttled off. We then turned around and saw a crudely hand drawn sign that indicated we'd be able to pay kids' prices at Six Flags with the purchase of a bottle of Fanta. We took the bait, bought a Fanta each and headed to the flag, deep down suspecting that we may have been scammed. But when we arrived at the Six Flags ticket line and saw families with palettes of unopened Fanta bottles, we mentally ...

    Nice, fabulous location, but needs some maintenance

    Still amazing in many ways, but with a few broken things in the room... a main lamp/feature of the room, without which the room was rather dark in the evening... broken sink... it could have been better.

    We would still likely stay there again... great breakfast!

    Otherwise it was comfortable and perfectly located.

    A Wonderful Time

    from

    Just got back from 4 days in Mexico City and stayed in the Marco Polo.

    Very nice staff, great view up in the Penthouse and at a very reasonable price. Perfect location for intercity discovery. Easy walking to Chapultepec and Zocola.

    I would stay here again without hesitation. Taxi was $24 from the airport for two...so 12.50 a piece....my wife and I did not feel nickle and dimed at all. It was our first anniversery and was perfect.

    Un tiempo maravilloso.

    from

    Acabo de regresar de 4 días en Ciudad de México y estuve en el Marco Polo.

    El personal era muy agradable, tenía unas excelentes vistas desde el ático y a un precio muy razonable. Una ubicación perfecta para el descubrimiento interurbano. Es fácil llegar a Chapultepec y a Zócalo.

    Permanecería aquí otra vez sin vacilación. El taxi para dos era 24 dólares desde el aeropuerto... Así que 12'50 cada uno...Mi esposa y yo no nos sentíamos en una baratija para nada. Era nuestro primer aniversario y fue perfecto.

    Lousey room

    from

    Got a suite on the 6th floor of the adjoining building (access through a door to the left of the main entry). Kitchenette was dirty and refrigerator was inoperative. Decor was dark wood furniture with creepy Aztec sacrificial prints on the walls. Two rock hard twin beds. Needs renovation. Towel rack mounting screws were pulling out of wall in bathroom. Bathroom cauking falling apart. When I sat down in a chair in the sitting area the bottom fell out and I ended up on the floor!

    Sounds funny now. The breakfast buffet was standard fare. I don't recommend it.

    Great Hotel

    from

    We originally checked in to the Sheraton Maria Isabel but were immediately aware that the high rates we were paying were for the luxorious surroundings, i.e. lobby, conference rooms, bar/lounge, etc because the rooms were very ordinary and small. We decided to check into the Marco Polo (which was right across Paseo de la Reforma) from the Sheraton due to the above and were very glad we did. The room rates were cut in half and we were given a suite that overlooked the Angel.

    Marco Polo Hotel is small, quiet, and luxurious

    from

    Spent four nights at the Marco Polo Hotel in the Zona Rosa district of Mexico City. It's a great base for a vacation in this fascinating city. If you don't mind walking a bit, this is within 10 minutes of a large number of sites. The rooms are huge, luxurious, and quiet. Most guests are business people. This is a small hotel, unlike many of the famous tourist hotels. Hence, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant seems to be sparsely occupied most of the time, but we had a superb dinner meal there. The business center provides free internet access 24 hours a day. We had a suite on the top floor and it was fabulous (and very reasonably priced). This is certainly a "top of the line" hotel in Mexico City.

    Best hotel in Mexico City

    from

    This is the hotel for the smart visitor who does not need adoring, expensive attention in faux surroundings but who needs genuine good service, clean, well appointed luxury rooms at decent prices and loads of free extras. Extras include a gym, free DSL service, breakfast and shoe shines!Please don't stay there, popularity kills good things.

    El mejor hotel de Ciudad de México.

    from

    Éste es el hotel para el visitante elegante que no necesita que le adoren, una atención cara en una falsedad circundante, pero quién necesita el genuino buen servicio. Limpio, con habitaciones lujosas y bien equipadas, a precios decentes y un montón de extras gratis. Los extras incluyen: un gimnasio, servicio gratis de ADSL, desayuno y limpia zapatos. Por favor, no te quedes allí, la popularidad mata las cosas buenas.

    Nice facilities, but for a price

    from

    The accommodations were above average and the facilities were excellent however I could not shake the feeling that I was being nickel and dimed for everything there. The hotel charged me $50 for a ride from the airport in a broken down, dirty car. The going market rate in a nicer taxi: $15-20. I expect to pay a premium for the hotel to arrange this for me but not 150%-200% and certainly not for the transportation I received. I believe a hotel of this quality (and price) should look out for the interests of its guests and this ride certainly failed in that respect. The staff was unapologetic when asked about it. At one point during my stay I needed a VCR and it took 3 phone calls over 5 hours before they brought it up - not the kind of service I expect. Also, they charged a premium on the exchange rate when billing me instead of the market rates that I am used to in business hotels or charging me in US dollars.I doubt I would stay here again.

    Personalized attention

    from

    My husband and I just returned from a week-long trip to Mexico City. Even though the Marco Polo is primarily a business hotel, we found the Marco Polo staff (especially Patricia) to be incredibly accommodating and considerate. We appreciated their small, on-site gym and free Internet access. At first, I was not thrilled with the Zona Rosa area, because it is situated between the ultra-posh Polanco area and the historic Zocalo area. In the end, I preferred the mid-way Zona Rosa location. Our hotel was within walking distance of Chapultepec Park/major museums and a short metro ride to the Zocalo. There was no purified water sign, but they do provide a few bottles of water on a daily basis.

    Wonderful

    from

    The Marco Polo is centrally located in one other best parts of the city...the Zona Rosa. It was short blocks away from great shopping, entertainment, and restaurants. The American Embassy is two or three blocks away. The Marco Polo has a very nice affordable restaurant on site, which serves both Mexican and American breakfasts. Waiters are very courteous and accommodating. The hotel rooms are medium size, but well appointed. Some had exercise equipment (e.g., stairmasters, stationery bikes) in them. A great convenience was the free use of two computers (internet connected) with printers in a business center off the lobby. The hotel staff spoke and understood enough English to service even the most demanding patron. Stay here....I am sure you will enjoy yourself. For a small hotel, I think you would find it hard to beat.
