Unpretentious hotel with an illustrious heritage, located right on the main square in the city's atmospheric historic centre.
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 clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
Well positioned centrally situated quite intimate hotel with friendly staff. Breakfast was on the terrace of the bar on the 6th floor with only plastic shielding us from the 5-80c temperatures outside. There was only one heater that worked so breakfast had to be taken in our outdoor coats with hats and scarves and any hot food ordered was cold by the time it arrived. The temperature ensured that no one lingered over breakfast! The staff said they didn't have heating at home because it was too expensive so they were used to it!MF, London
