I choose this hotel for myself & 3 college-age kids. Suite was spacious for all of us, 3 tv's, kitchenette. The staff was extremely friendly & helpful. Room was very clean, the bed comfortable, the sofa bed was ""OK"" per the boys. We felt very safe, just blocks from US Embassy. The hotel buffet was good ($8.00), lots of excellent restaurants around...and don't miss the best ""steak & cheese"" tacos at the kiosk at corner to the left as you exit. The kids kept wanting to eat there: 10 tacos + 4 sodas for $12 dollars! Hotel may not have 5-star amenities (spas, exercise room, pool, lobby bar,etc...but we got our exercise climbing the Sun Pyramid. Take the Turibus around town; there's a stop just 2 blocks from the hotel, it takes u all around, u get off, sightsee as long as u want, return to the Turibus Stop to catch next one. Catch Metro 1 block from the hotel, get off at famous Anthropological Museum (bus clean, roomy on this route). After Museum, cross the street and meander through Chapultepec Park, walk up to the Castle for a gloriousl view of the city. Tours booked at the front desk are great, & reasonable too. We went on a day's tour: Floating Gardens (kids loved this one), Univ of Mex campus, San Angelo district, Frieda Kahlo's house: Price $25.00 p/person. Bottled water sold at every corner. Highly recommend hotel for friendly staff, cleanliness, roomy bathroom, security & location: my 5-stars.
