    Near to the historical Centre ”

    Hotel El Salvador is located a stone 's throw away from the historical centre of Mexico City , very walkable , approx 5-10mins . Even through the neighbourhood it is located in is not as commercialised , we see police patrolling and don't feel unsafe . The hotel is clean and modern . There is wifi and computers for use. Only problem we encountered was that almost all their staff spoke Spanish , mainly or exclusively . Not a problem if you know Spanish , but we did not and had a bit of difficulty communicating

    Exceptional”

    Okay, when we checked the room details, we didn't see any AC or Fan listed but we didn't think the room wouldn't have either, really. We were kind of shocked at first, but then we realized that there is also none in reception and restaurant areas. We came to understand that the hotel has a quite good ventilation system which can keep it cool at most time. Yes, the room can only get cooler after midnight, so if you have just come back from walking under the sun, you should take a shower, that'd help. The restaurant serves good food as well, and the waiters do ask for tip at exact 10% of the food. The room is clean and the location of the hotel is good, can't complain on those.

    Close to Metro, walk to Alemeda or Zocalo

    Staff was friendly and helpful. Maids were thorough and cordial. The room was dry and stuffy and I had trouble breathing. I ran the shower hot for a while and it helped humidify the room. I'll ask for a streetside room next time. WiFi and phone signals are bad but free internet stations are nice. Nice restaurant, reasonable prices.

    Nice hotel”

    Good hotel considering the price. Location is great, near San Juan de Letran subway station. Zocalo is just 10 mins away on foot. The street is a busy electronics business area so I think the rooms facing the street must be noisy. Our room was next to the elevator and it's pretty quiet except the hotel guests walking by sometimes, we can hear them in the room. Front desk night guy was kind and helpful, speaks English.

    central location

    Double room became a twin, mirrors were filthy, basin sink was plugged full of hair and didn't drain well. Bathroom roof was mouldy, towels weren't spotless and there was no hand towel. Facet and tap both leaked onto bathroom vanity so everythng got soaked. Door handle was broken and almost off the door, so getting into the room was a 5 minute exercise. Elevator was slow, interesting and there was only one, so don't be in a rush. Well located though.
