Mexico City: Zocalo Central

Visit Us

Zocalo Central

Nothing can detract from the Zócalo Central's brilliant location on the Zócalo (main square) in the capital's historic centre, not far from the airport. It is built on the site of – and maintains remaining sections of – Emperor Moctezuma's palace, later the residence of conquistador Hernán Cortés and the first house of Government, endowing the hotel with an illustrious heritage.

Times may have changed and past glory faded, but the décor and furnishings of most of the en suite rooms defer subtly to the building's colonial past. Not all rooms have views, but there is no denying the wonderful vantage point over the Zócalo available to guests from the rooftop terrace restaurant and bar. The central location also allows you the pick of a wide array of bars and restaurants in the neighbourhood.

What our experts say

Dine or sip a cocktail at the splendid rooftop bar and restaurant which serves Mexican and international dishes - I can vouch for the fact that the view over the square is magnificent.
