"Mariachi bands to enjoy...."
Great hotel location walking distance to metro, Bellas Artes, eateries and shops, rooms clean and updated, staff friendly and accommodating.....sounds and vibration from the nightly music band could be heard in the rooms' wall next to the bar. Overall, lively atmosphere in the Plaza in front of the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Mariachi area hotel"
Enjoyed our 3 nights stay ..... Though band vibrations from the bar next door were felt and music loud till early morning, the hotel was great! The staff were all friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was okay. Plaza Garibaldi was lively at night....walking distance to Bellas Artes and to many eateries and stores.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Gem Off the Beaten Path"
Had a very comfortable stay in thus hotel. The room was clean and comfortable; the restaurant outstanding. The staff was accommodating and helpful, definitely service oriented. The hotel was priced well until the week-end, when rates more than doubled. The location is on an historic plaza, which fills each evening with Mariachis. There are many and […] varied restaurants close-by. Entry to the hotel is a bit confusing. You enter through a huge garage or haul your luggage about a block from the street. While the hotel is a healthy walk from the Centro Historico, I still recommend the hotel and its staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay in Mexico City"
Great hotel in the lively Plaza Garibaldi. Lovely comfortable and clean room, helpful reception staff. Easy walking distance to the main sights and the metro station. A decent restaurant on the ground floor which appeared to be linked to the hotel but only fault was that you could not put meals on the room. Dont stay here if you are a light sleeper […] though as was quite noisy with partying guests, but we would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"clean,entertaining but electronic services lacking"
room was very clean. I use WIFI alot and there was very poor signal in my room. Wifi only worked in lobby. The tv had no changer and no dvd as promised. None of problems were fixed though they tried. Food was ok. Marachi playing was good but loud in room on one night until 1:30 amGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked this hotel on the advice of other reviews on the hotels.com website, and was not disappointed. It is located on a street that has a pedestrian mall, no cars allowed! The hotel is VERY well maintained, the room was spacious and spotless; as you leave the hotel, turn left and explore this interesting neighborhood. I was there on a Friday night, […] and there were groups of Mariachi playing in the streets as well as in restaurants, of which there are a copious amount of. For some authentic Mexican Cuisine, there is an extremely large building just 5 minutes away that houses a tremendous food court with all kinds of "goodies" to sample. The personnel at the front desk are extremely helpful...a basic knowledge of Spanish is more than helpful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Every thing was great from staff to continental breakfast the hotel room was very spacious and well adorn except the room we were staying mariachi music and club music would penetrate it big time from all the three hotels we stayed in mexico i would recommend garibaldi next time would book a room further from main plaza away from music don't get me […] wrong i love mariachi music n club music but it gets frustrating after the second night Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very Close to El Tenampa Bar!"
When arriving to Mexico city and you get a taxi cab some taxis drivers do not know where that hotel is at although you give them the adress because it used to be called something else before Hotel Garibaldi. So when you ask to be taken to this cool Hotel tell them to take you to Plaza Garibaldi and is right by the OXO on the corner. Alote of the stuff […] like eating, shopping and drinking is all walking distance! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Could be much better with their breakfast. But plenty of place around to have better breakfasts the morning.Genuine Expedia guest review

"For the price not bad"
We paid about $55/night - for the price not bad. Front desk pleasant. Breakfast was somewhat poor. Rooms clean. The surrounding area you would not want to walk alone after 10pm. During the day is fine to walk around the area. A few blocks down great breakfast place - Cafe Tacuba - awesome cafe con leche!! Hotel located to major points of interest. We […] recommend if you take a taxi ask front desk to call for it and verify/confirm the taxi fee with front desk and driver. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely, hotel staff, clean rooms, nice breakfast. We stayed on a weekday so the mariachi musician were hardly evident. Nonetheless, the manager gave us 2 rooms at the back of the hotel which was very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in an interesting cultural area"
This hotel is definitely one of my favourites in Mexico City-fantastic value, with a good restaurant onsite, welcoming and pleasant staff, exceptionally well maintained and recently completely modernised. Altho no coffee/tea making facilities in the rooms which I think a 4* Hotel really should have, the rooms are excellent with outstanding bathrooms […] & complimentary toiletries, a large bottle of drinking water fresh every day, quality linen and towls and beautifully designed & lit rooms. Rooms except those over looking Plaza Garibaldi have new frosted internal facing windows, all (except the front rooms with balconies) windows open onto quiet internal spaces. One appreciates the tightly sealing windows and excellent airconditioning in each room as the Plaza at night becomes the cultural focus for bands of Mariachis all playing at once touting for business amongst citizens looking for a Mariachi band to hire. If you are a light sleeper ask for a room towards the back of the hotel - the bars, Mariachis & famous music restaurants on the square play most of the night! The square has some excellent restaurants - don't miss the small excellent Mexican cocinas & the Mercado of eating places of varying quality but undeniable charm! The Plaza is a cultural heritage refurbished some years ago (with the State run Music School for Mariachis) but the surrounding area is neglected and can be problematic at night but I had no problems on the short walk to/from the Historic Centre.

"wonderful staff and fun area but scary after hours"
The hotel is absolutely wonderful with great staff and the owner was very pleasant. The room is great (a little noisy at night somedays) The breakfast was fantastic and full of choices (safe and clean food) not included though. The restaurant staff are superb! Everyone working in the hotel was in good mood and helpful. The parking staff was extremely […] pleasant and helpful.I had no knowledge of a parking garage when I arrived from the airport, but the hotel has one and it is easy to access. You need to know where it is to unload luggage. The area is fun with lots of restaurants and night life and really well guarded but you must be careful at night because there are many "loucos" walking drunk or drugged at late hours around the area. Definitively stay within the plaza and do not walk around too much after 11pm. During the day it is safe to walk everywhere and the location is perfect to visit Zocolo ( nice restaurant overlooking the Catedral called Puro Corazon) and other touristic attractions that are walking distance from the hotel. It is also a short and cheap trip from the airport 200 pesos !). The pyramids in Teotichuacan (about 1,5hrs away driving) are fantastic! Ate at Techinanco Restaurant- excellent. Loved the local community of theater in San Rafael and ate at the family (traditional) restaurant Overall the trip was great and I totally recommend this hotel!

"Mariachi all night long..."
Good location except it's7 minute walk to Metro stations.Could be noisy at night with all the mariachi bands andclubs around till 2:30 AM. A small "restaurant row" right by the plaza with about 40 stalls and eateries. Room AC has its own mind and cannot be turned on or off with control device.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very good and well situated hotel"
Everything was clean, the staff was really nice and helped us a lot with the airport shuttle service, the touristic tour and the luggage that we let during the whole day there. The hotel is literally in the center of the historic Mexico city and is thus really convenient to visit the city without using any public transportation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very positive experience"
I had an awesome time, this hotel is perfectly located in the historic downtown, so that all the touristy attractions can be reached walking. 5-minute walk from the Palacio Bellas Artes, Correos, Torre Latina, Calle Madero, 15-minute walk from the Zócalo... Plaza Garibaldi is also really nice and offers a lot of choice to go out and eat among mariachis! […] The staff of the hotel was extremely friendly and helpful. Only flaw: the restaurant service was terrible when we tried once at night... The food was not good and the service was extremely long. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Garibaldi Hotel, Mexico City"
It is a 3 to 3.5 star hotel, clean, beds were a bit soft, no tea or coffee facilities in the room, but there was a good restaurant downstairs where the included breakfast was served and not too pricey when it came to meals. Staff were helpful but their English is limited, but hey what can you expect it's a Spanish speaking country. The hotel is on Garibaldi […] Plaza, where the Mariachi play on a daily basis. The music goes to about 1 am, but it's not offensive, you can just hear it. If it would bother you, I suggest you take a set of earplugs for sleeping. We did have altitude sickness in Mexico City. It is 7400 feet above sea level and we didn't realize that. Mine went after 4 days but my partner had it the whole 8 days we were there. The Diamox tablets didn't help him as he should have started taking them 2 days before we arrived there. We were told Garibaldi Plaza area was not a very safe place, but we didn't see any evidence of this, there was a good police presence there all the time, we always felt safe. We walked most everywhere during the day and were never fearful. Be careful of the taxi drivers though, they give you a price and when you get to the other end, they say the price was for one person and double it for the second person. We did get caught only once. All in all the Garibaldi Hotel was exactly what you pay for in a 3 to 3.5 star hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location, great price"
Great locaton on a small square but tended to be a bit noisy. Swimming pool is on rhe roof with viws of the cathederal (but there is car park to overlook first!). The price was stupidly low for the quality of this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent location, staff super helpful, clean, great everything.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel Garibaldi was a very nice and modern looking hotel. We were very pleased and happy with the room, service, and friendliness of the staff. We also enjoyed the location as it isnt too far from the Zocalo and other places. The rooms howver can use a little more ventilation as a better AC or fan.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was surprisingly good, nicely decorated and well maintained. Service could be better in the restaurant. Staff did try to accommodate our needs with suitcases, taxis, and went out of their way to get us on a local bus. The neighbourhood is sketchy, with an interesting and diverse street life and lots of bars in the neighbourhood.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value stop for centre of city"
All excellent except for the sound of music through into the early hours on the Friday and Saturday nights. We chose to have a room with a view onto the street, rather than an interior one with no external view, so it was partly our fault that the noise was so loud. Hotel staff were excellent and the breakfast (extra) was a good start to the day. Helpful […] staff arranged a good day tour for us. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"If you like live music"
Very nice hotel, convenient for walking to the centre of the city - about 15 mins from the Zocalo. The square has large numbers of musicians plying their trade at night at a number of restaurants where there is also live music. On the Friday and Saturday it seemed to go on for a long time, but we had asked to be moved to a 'street view' room, so the […] noise was partly a consequence of our own making. Really liked the atmosphere in the hotel, with friendly helpful staff in all areas. Would recommend it to anyone. Just have to decide between a view and less noise!

"Close to downtown by foot"
The room was clean and comfortable and it is close to a Metro station and downtown by foot. I heard it is not a very safe place to stay in the city but we did not meet with any accidents, so i guess you just have to be careful while you are there. The toilet comes with towels and shower gels etc. Wi-Fi was great as well. The staff in the hotel spoke […] good english and it was very easy to communicate with them.

A very nice hotel, looks new, rooms are clean and comfortable. It's great for a short stay in Mexico City, very close to all attractions in the center, although the area is not the safest. We saw quite a few drunks and even a fight... Besides this the only bad thing about the hotel is that the walls are extremely thin and we could hear everything that […] happened in the hallway and neighbor room very loud and clear.

"small cheap hotel, on a Garibaldi :)"
small and cheap hotel, just was missing the promised balcony, as it only presents by two rooms per floor so only to every fith one... p.s. u should know that Garibaldi square is in the center but at the eve is a capital of Mariachi musicians, that could scare people sometimes :) but quiet interesting to see for some too :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
