Best Value Hotels in Mexico City

View all Mexico City Hotels

If you're planning a trip to Mexico City and need some hotel ideas -- and you're willing to forgo the marble bathrooms, fleet of luxury cars, and bath butler service (or if you have no idea what "bath butler service" even means) -- then you've come to the right place. We sent hotel investigators all over Mexico's capital to find the most pleasant and reasonably priced places to stay. 

  1. This '70s-era Zona Rosa hotel, conveniently located near El Angel de la Independencia, is well-maintained and includes high-quality wood furniture and beams -- especially in the lobby. Each of the 142 rooms is pleasant, and has laminate wood flooring and a flat-screen TV. There are two restaurants, one of which serves a breakfast buffet. Wi-Fi and parking are free, but expect to pay extra for breakfast and coffee in the rooms. Guests are either here on business or for the tourist-friendly neighborhood. For a hotel in the same neighborhood with more pizazz, check rates at Room Mate Valentina. 

  2. The 50-room Hotel Del Principado is located in the heart of the Zona Rosa neighborhood within walking distance of shops, restaurants, bars, and businesses. Rooms are basic and not air-conditioned, but do have flat-screen TVs, free bottled water, and free Wi-Fi. The budget hotel's main selling point is its central location and low rates; another option travelers could consider is Hotel Fontan Reforma.

  3. Hotel Casa Gonzalez consists of four historic homes built in the traditional Mexican quinta-style, surrounded by courtyards and gardens, and now converted into guest houses. The 33 clean, cozy rooms are individually decorated and renovated to include flat-screen TVs and private bathrooms, and most have an outdoor area as well. There's a charming family-run Mexican restaurant on-site that serves a substantial breakfast for a small fee.

  4. Originally built as part of a church in the 1800s, Hotel Gillow sits in the heart of Mexico City's walkable and beautiful Historic District. Guests can expect pleasant rooms, a solid restaurant, and historical ambience at budget prices, though they should also bank on a few downsides, like spotty Wi-Fi, a charge for breakfast, and noise from the city. Decor and amenities in the 103 rooms don't really vary, but the Suite has the most space and a hot tub in the bathroom. The vast majority of guests here are tourists who want a comfortable night's sleep and a decent breakfast before exploring the neighborhood.
