I needed a cheap room in a decent area not too far from all the tourist sights, and Hotel Fontan fit the bill. This was one of the cheapest in the center of Mexico City, so of course I had little expectations. The room was quite roomy and recently updated. The beds were large, but the mattresses were hard and springy. I got used to it. The view was lousy, it faced the inside enclosure of the buildings with air conditioning ducts blocking my window. But at least it was quieter than the rooms facing the busy Paseo De La Reforma. Loved the free wifi in my room, bottled water was placed in my room daily. All the staff were friendly. The hotel is located in a business area, within walking distance of Palacio Bellas Artes, and about 15 mins to the Zocalo. A good choice if you are on a tight budget and aren't expecting a fancy room with a nice view.
Unique Quality: The lobby is attractive and looks recently renovated. Inside is a concierge that will book day trips and city tours for you.
After searching for hotels, I found several cheap ones on
Hotel Fontan for $30 ( I am kind of leaning towards this one)
Corinto hotel for $35
I was told That Paseo del Reforma (ZOna Roza) is a good place to stay.
Any one stayed in these hotels before?
I like to stay in the old city center, "El Centro Historico". In either the Hotel Isabel(around $20 usd) or, "Hotel Catedral" (around $40)
The Hotel Isabel is old and funky but clean w/some huge rooms and sort of a hostel atmosphere with lots of young Intl travelers. The hotel Catedral is more modern, more like hotels americans may be used to. Both of these hotels have websites and are a fairly cheap taxi or,(real cheap) bus or subway ("Metro") ride from the Zona Rosa.
