Best hotel in the district

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 8, 2011

I have stayed at this hotel 7 times over the last 15 years. The hotel is old and historic but the rooms are very clean. Always had hot water for a shower and the staff is very helpful. This is the only place I stay now in Mexico City.

Unique Quality: The hotel is has a perfect location in the Zocolo District with great views of the presidental palace and the cathedral. The roof top restaurant is great, especially the breakfast. Outside seating is available. In the winter, recently there has been an ice skating rink in the square below and during the first two weeks of the year is an ongoing celebration. Be sure to request a room that faces the square.

Directions: The Constitution Square Plaza de la Constitución El Zócalo Of Mexico City

The hotel was generally good and in a great location except for the noise! This is by far the noisiest place we've ever stayed. We got a window/balcony room on the 2nd floor just above the traffic lights and a great view of the cathedral in the historic town square. The glass in the balcony windows must've been the thinest glass in the world because it did not block out any of the street noise at all. Additionally, between about 7.30am and 8.30pm there are traffic cops that direct traffic at the lights below and they do nothing but constantly blow loud whistles all day long! One day I had a migraine and I literally had toilet paper in my ears and head between two pillows! Also, because of the way the hotel is laid out, you can hear all noise from other guests also and it seems to echo throughout the building. Don't get me wrong, the hotel is OK but you could do a lot better for your money.

Unique Quality: Great rooftop dining and bar with fantastic view. Fantastic location in Zocalo.

Directions: Opposite presidential palace on main square.

Majestic!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 9, 2005

Actually I haven't stayed there ... just been there the last evening of my 2003/2004-stay in Mexico, listening to the sound of Pepe Aguilar and enjoying a great meal. Don't remember WHAT we ate, but remember that I enjoyed it.
Majestic Hotel, which formed a part of the project by Alberto J. Pani and Carlos Obregón Santacilia for remodeling Plaza de la Constitución, is one of the many buildings adapted to a style known as neo-colonial.

Unique Quality: The lookout from the terrace is the hotel's main attraction. It is simply TERRIFIC!!! Worth a visit to have a glass of water or a couple of beers ... between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m.

Directions: directly on the Plaza de la Constitución

I stayed at the Best western Majestic in November 2004,i needed a room with a american channel so i could monitor the elections.I was impressed by the view and the lobby docor.I had dinner at the restraunt a couple of time in the past years,so i was not new to the hotel.The hotel prices list for a round 1000.00 MX a night i payed after taxes 78.00 dollars getting a special goverment rate.I was very disipointed in my room,the furnishings were antique Ie:70s.A small rca tv and the bathroom had paint peeling off the walls.there was not guide to the hotel in the room or channel guide.I was very unimpressed especially staying in Acapulco paying about $50.00 US and getting much better room.Except for havimg a elevator attendent and a very polite staff, a great lobby and a overly priced restraunt that has a fantastic view of the Zocolo.i would give this hotel a star and a half for the room.

Unique Quality: View of the Zocolo is Fantastic,but for $80 US?

Directions: Centro Historical Zocolo Area

In general this was a nice place to stay. What you don't know until the first morning is that they have some kind of flag raising ceremony at like 5 am.... Yes, we had early mornings there. Impossible to sleep in when there's loud trumpeting outside the window. However, I think the view was worth it, and this way your up real early to get out and see Mexico City! We had a balcony overlooking the Zocalo. The bathrooms were nice by Mexico standards, beds were nice and they provide bottled water in the room.

Best First Place to Stay in Mexico City

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

If you are willing to pay $100 and this is the first time to Mexico City, you should really consider the Majestic for authenticity, view and location. This hotel is now owned by Best Western so you can get reservations by calling their international number. With taxes it may reach $110, but it is well worth it. If you call, beg for a lower price or call the hotel directly. I have a friend who just had their travel agent get the better price. I got a double for $80 including taxes a year ago and I have seen rates of $55 a night reported on the internet. Ask for a room facing the Zocalo (main plaza) and for less noise ask for the 4th, or 5th floor. The 6th floor rooms may suffer from noise from the overhead restaurant. The rooms in the interior are not necessarily quieter because of the tile echo from facing rooms. If you value quiet more than the view do not stay here, but if you do not stay here consider their roof top brunch. Your balcony faces the national palace.

Unique Quality: You are on the main Zocalo, facing the national palace. This is an old hotel with character inspite of now being owned by Best Western. Because it is a Best Western you should be able to depend on your reservations.

Directions: On the Zocalo. Entrance on Ave. Madero.

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

The Hotel Majestic is right on the Zocalo in centro historico district. That's right folks, from my hotel window I had a commanding view of the Cathedral, the square and Vicente Fox's place.

Unique Quality: The hotel has a great history and an incredible decor, colorful tilework throughout the lobby, staircase and second floor atrium. The hotel restaurant has an outdoor terrace that looks over the Zocalo as well...

Directions: On the west side of the Zocalo

Centrally Located Hotel

by written on January 8, 2003

Located right on top of the Zocalo - really worth staying in as you only have a short stroll to a lot of the major attractions. Especially useful if you're on a tight schedule, like we were.

Unique Quality: Friendly staff and an amazing view from the rooftop terrace restaurant. What a fantastic place to have breakfast!

Directions: Really, it is right by the Zocalo, in fact, it actually is one of the buildings surrounding it.
