The rooms are clean and quiet, the wifi is good, the location is central, the staff are friendly and helpful. Best of all is the price. We paid 550 pesos for two people with a bathroom and a TV. The dehumidifier seemed to rum permanantly, but we quite liked that. We checked out a lot of places to stay, even...

The hotel is one block away from the zocalo, main plaza with lots of restaurants too. The staff were friendly, it was fine. The rooms were in reasonable condition, bathroom was clean but with low water pressure, but hot water was no problem. One of the skirting boards in the room was very loose and there was some plaster on...

This hotel has two great things: price an location. it is located downtown, one block away from Zocalo and the very good restaurants that surrounds the plaza. We asked for a two bed's room and we got one twin and one full. That was a first. I lost the flip coin, so I have problems sleeping in the smaller bed....

Oh my ... this place should be shut down for security reasons ... broken windows, erratic elevators, mold in the bathroom ... someone please call the municipal sanitary investigators ! There is absolutely no reason to choose to stay in this run down place.

I stayed at Hotel Gilfer as part of a G Adventures tour (MMC). The property was well situated and close to the main Zocalo and to restaurants, shops, post offices etc. Check in was relatively quick and we got a hotel room with a big window and nice view overlooking the city. Rooms were clean and there was even a...

When checking in, I looked at several rooms on the 7th floor. The fellow was most accommodating, and my room was the last on the corridor with room-width windows overlooking Cathedral. One of the desk staff sent me off to the Carmen Market where I had the most wonderful cemita (easily 5" tall!). Instructions were to go into the market...

We were on a tour, so not sure how much these hotels were. Hotel Gilfer was very nice, especially comparing to hotels we stayed in Oaxaca, Merida, Palenque, San Cristobal. First of all, the cleaning staff lady warned us that we had to wait "poquito" for water. She was very nice and friendly! The rooms were clean, hot water was...
