Hotel Santa Helena Plaza
The hotel was very peaceful and the room was super clean. There aren’t many amenities but the room rates are quite inexpensive. The furnishings offer old world Mexican charm but bed linens and towels could use an upgrade. The location is a short walk to the big cathedral which is another few blocks to the Zocalo. The pool area is nice, There’s a pretty mural in the cantina area. The pool is not heated but probably very refreshing when it’s super hot. The staff was friendly and helpful when I needed to call a taxi. They are very hands off once you check in. I’d say this is a good value hotel and seemed to have mostly nationals as guests.

Hotel Santa Helena Plaza
Bare bones, but fine
The hotel and the pool were clean and cute, and the staff was nice. The cleaning staff actually did a great job every day... leave them a tip, they deserve it. The beds were comfortable. The restaurant was not open during our visit and it did not appear to have been for some time. It was just a covered patio next to the pool with some dining sets. There was a vending machine in the lobby which was unplugged at night and remained unplugged until a guest would attempt to use it in the morning. This meant that the beverages were warm until enough time had passed for the refrigeration to do its job. No ice machine. The location is fairly central. Its just a 10 minute walk from the Zocalo, there are street vendors all around for fruit, tacos, and shops to purchase beverages. Overall, it is clean, close to the landmarks and parks, but definitely not for those who want to walk out of their hotel right into a main tourist area or pretty coloniel architecture. You have to pay more to be closer to that. The hotel was primarily empty, which felt a little odd. Parking available on premise. The pool makes it worthwhile, bring your own snackes, beverages, a speaker and enjoy. Suggested for younger travelers on a budget, not for older guests or those who need more amenities then just the very basics.
