Hotel Principal, Mexico City
The stay was nice. Our room had 4 double beds. It was very cozy. No air conditioning but had a large window. The pillows are super hard. We had to request extra towels and the staff was not too happy. We were 7 and only received 4 towels. :( The location is amazing! Walking distance from Bellas Artes! It is a cheap stay. I would recommend this hotel. It is under reconstruction.

Cheap, basic, centrally located
The rooms are tiny and there's no AC (don't really need it though). But it's really cheap and you can't beat the location. Great value if you aren't looking for luxury. There are many Wi-Fi networks that you can connect to in the rooms but they are all basically unusable -- so slow and more than half of the time it won't load Google. However, if you go downstairs to the lobby, they have a special Wi-Fi network with a slightly different password that works fine, but you have to ask for it.
