If you are looking for a hotel that is at the center of it all, then book a room in this hotel. If you prefer a quiet location, get one that is facing the Atrium or the center of the hotel. However, it becomes noisy when people talk loudly in the premises. If you want to get the view of the plaza, ask for a room facing the Zocalo square. A higher floor if you will since the street noise can be loud too. Cars, people and the church bells can be heard from these outside rooms.
As for the rooms, we got a double one with a king bed, and it was spacious and provided an excellent view of the Square. The room was clean with a TV, alarm clock, coffee maker and hair dryer. The 7th floor/rooftop restaurant provided a very nice view of the Metropolitan Cathedral, the Zocalo Square and the old National Palace.
Please note to all travelers that there is no A/C in the rooms of the hotel, but you can ask for an electric fan be brought to your room, free of charge. Same applies to the bottled water in your room, they're free too. Wi-fi is spotty at times. For the hotel location, you have a bakery, a convenience store, an ice cream shop, a taco place, lots of small stores, currency exchange, coffee shoppes, among others - all within walking distances of this hotel.
If location to you is important, then this is at the center of it all. less
