Our hotel was based in the Historic Centre and we were delighted to be based in such a beautiful and convenient location. This is an excellent base as you can walk to many sights, or take a short taxi for adventures further afield.

Some interesting architecture, pedestrian only streets, shops and restaurants in the area. The area seems safe but would recommend your basic precautions as in any city. Very busy on Saturday morning.

When we were there I didn't see many at this site. The area was very nice. The traffic was bad everywhere we went. I was on my list to see.

We stayed in the NH Centro historico. The area was full of life from early morning. Plenty of cafes and bars along with departmental stores. Close to other places of interest such as national palace and the theatre de Bellas Artes.

Centro Historico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro
Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings
and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico
City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio
Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas
Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to
admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit
the wide variety of markets and plazas where any
