Arrived on Friday, November 23rd at 8:00 pm. Made a reservation two months in advance with a credit card deposit. Much to my dismay, when I arrived to the hotel I was told that they were very sorry but they had no more rooms available. I had even confirmed my reservation with a phone call the day before arrival. The fact that I even had a printed copy of my reservation confirmation sent from their website didn't seem to make any difference. Apparently a busload of Mexican tourists had arrived 30 minutes before I did and they gave my room away. Hotel Catedral offered me a room at another hotel across town that they owned, which I refused (who wants to stay 5 miles from the Zocalo in the middle of nowhere). While standing in the lobby, made a reservation at Hampton Suites (a five minute walk away) which turned out to be a much better hotel anyway. My point is this; why make a reservation if it is not going to be honored? Not what you want to encounter after a 5 hour flight and a one hour taxi drive. I have stayed in this hotel in the past on at least five occasions; seems like the front desk doesn't know that they are doing anymore.

Hotel Catedral's self description as "luxury" is somewhat ambitious, but if you get beyond that, this is a lovely little hotel in a fantastic location, right round the corner from the Zocalo. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable (although sadly lacking in safeboxes and hot drink-making facilities), and the complementary wifi is reliable. They ran out of single rooms, so I got upgraded to a nice double on the top floor (number 707), overlooking the roof terrace - it could get a little noisy with people sitting out there, but it was worth it for the view. I didn't try the breakfast, but the restaurant was rather disappointing when dinner there the first night. Plenty of great options in the vicinity, so no need to eat there anyway. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. Overall, very highly recommended.

Just a block off the Zocalo in the old historic city center. Great service from all the staff. Excellent breakfasts also. Rooms were very clean and well maintained. I'd have no reservations about going back or referring anyone.

Room tip: Higher floors have a better view, but be prepared for street noise.
