A good value hotel with a great location, close to the Zocalo. Rooms are clean and comfortable, with modern tiled bathrooms, and fixtures and fittings of a quality you wouldn´t expect at a price like this. We stayed for five nights in October, and paid 280 pesos for a double room overlooking the street. There was traffic noise - the...

We stayed for a week at this hotel and would highly recommend it. Two people, two beds, balcony onto the street, 340 pesos (approx $35). We didn't make a reservation in advance but unless you're there for some special event, it looked like they're large enough that they always have rooms available. The location is excellent -- easy walking to...

The room was OK, although the balcony opened onto a very noisy street and during the night we got terribly mosquito-bitten. We had to leave the balcony open because there is no AC and no fan. However, that evening the receptionist charged me $5 for an extra guest in the room ( invited my student to stay with us instead...

It is nicely renovated for a budget hotel. I stay there for 2 nts but after the second day, I decided to checkout because I could not stand the staff any longer at the Riojas . This hotel has the most unfreindly and rude staff I have ever experienced for a long while. If you are simply looking for a...

After running around Mexico City trying to find a double room in all the hostels with no luck, we found this place in the guide book under budget stays. We walked into a nice lobby area and were both thinking "this doesn't look very budget". Asked the woman at the desk how much for a double room per night and...

Hotel Rioja is truly a bargain. I stayed there with my mother during the November holidays. Our room had two double beds, cable and a nice balcony onto 5 de Mayo for less than 350 pesos. The room was impeccable and the staff was extremely courteous. The hotel is located next to great restaurants, bars, the metro and the Zocalo....

I was a walk in to Hotel Rioja on Avenida 5 de Mayo. I stayed here for about a week in October 2006 and it cost me MX$230 a night. I had a room on the top floor. It had a good sized clean & modern bathroom (great shower!) & the room was spacious enough with a double bed. I...
