            Holiday Inn Zocalo is located on Constitution Plaza and was an excellent location, especially for those interested in history. The surrounding area is also a major shopping area.

            On Our first stay we had a room that the toilet didn't flush and the plumbing generally was poor. Our second stay, a few days later was much better. We wondered, not for the first time, whether internet bookings tend to be given lower grade rooms.

            The location was perfect for us. We traveled from Australia touring America and only had 3 days to spend in Mexico City. The Holiday Inn overloo0ks the Zocalo (square) which is surrounded by ancient historic buildings and the Cathedral. The subway is also located in the Zocalo and you can travel anywhere from there very cheaply. On the top floor is their restaurant which is a great pleasure to visit for the sumptuous buffet breakfast and also at night. Try the hot chocolate any time you can. No-one does it better. Our room was very comfortable and quiet and the staff are 1st class. Nothing was too much trouble and you'll see loads of smiles from everyone working there. English isn't a problem at the Holiday Inn. We're going to miss being there. We had a really great time. Dianne

            Perfect location, directly at the Zócalo. Many attractions in walking distance. Free parking. Very good breakfast buffet. Super view from the restaurant terrace, directly facing the Zócalo.

            Had an "inside room" with no real window to the street, courtyard. No daylight. Difficult for claustrophibic people.
