Hotel Principal, Mexico City
Outstanding5.0 / 5
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.

Great location & friendly staff
Location was excellent. Walking distance to many sightseeing sites & shops & transport. Some staff spoke some English. They were all very friendly & helpful. My room was cleaned daily. Free filtered cold & hot water was available at all times.

Great location & helpful staff
Excellent location in centre of the historical part of the city & walking distance to many sightseeing places, restaurants & cafes & shopping. Surprisingly it was quiet. Close to trains & buses & 1/2 hour by taxi from the airport. My room was basic but it got cleaned daily. The staff were friendly & helpful & some spoke some English.Filtered cold & hot water was available.

Great Value considering location!
I've stayed in all levels of hotels, and I rate a hotel against the price I pay. With that in mind, it's a hotels that checks all the basic boxes. It was walking distance to the National Palace, Metropolitan Church and over all downtown center. The room I had was a double bed on the first floor, the noise other reviewers talk about are due to the other hotel guest, not from street-noise. My bed was firm and comfortable and the shower had warm water, at least it wasn't a cold shower. The hotel is a short Uber ride to Chapultepec Castle, Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Condesa or the airport (Avg 30 min ride in either direction)costing less than 8USD. My room had no A/C or ceiling fan, but a simple request for a box fan was all it took to make my stay comfortable! All in all a great value considering I paid less than $20/night without taxes
