Far better than "basic"!
I stayed at the Basic Hotel for 3 nights, and was very pleasantly surprised. The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly. The room, though small, was more than sufficient; the bed was very comfortable and the shower was hot. There were both a fan and heater in the room to adapt to the weather. They provide a free bottle of water every day. Noise can echo in the hall because there's no carpet, and I could hear people in their room until they settled, but it wasn't bad. The "continental breakfast" was more than that. A couple varieties of food were offered along with fresh fruit, coffee and juice. It all was good. The hotel is in what seems to be a decent area, with a 7-11 convenience store on the corner & a bank across the street. Vendors sold food & other things on the weekday. I think a train station is nearby. The road is busy, but quiets at night. There's a nice "porch" to sit on in the front of the hotel, and there's free wi-fi in the lobby and room. The only downside is there is no shuttle from or to the airport. Taxis or car services run about $12-15 US dollars to and from the airport. The car service the hotel uses has great drivers. You can have private tours with one, but ask the cost ahead of time. (Mine was more than I expected, but he wasn't trying to take advantage.) It's not a dealbreaker, though. Overall, I really enjoyed my time there, and I would definitely go back. The staff couldn't be better, and it was quite comfortable. I recommend it!

It is a very cute boutique hotel that is clean and very close to reforma. I recommend the comfort rooms since they are much bigger than the basic.

You probably get more than what you paid for
It feels like a more upscaling/expensive hotel. The mattress is a little uncomfort though
JAVIER, us2 night business trip
Good 6.0
Place is nice. I don’t like the fact that I can’t bring not even water to my room. I understand you want to keep the place nice and neat. But good people can eat or drink something without spill. I was in one of the “upgraded” rooms and. Bathrooms and the lamps in the room weren’t working. Also the shower to me is not functional since because the shower doesn’t have a door, it spills all over the place. It would be nice to have better choices for breakfast. Specially for health conscious people. Since I wasn’t able to eat anything of what they gave except for a little tiny bowl of fruit. Mexico’s supplies for cooking are extremely cheap. So natural orange juice should be a most in the hotel instead of the carton “punch juice” fill with sugar and no nutrients.
