                    Very nice staff. I got an inside room to avoid noise as the hotel is on a very busy street. Loved being so close to Metro and bus which goes up and down Paseo de Reforma. Very god value. Modern, clean and lovely breakfast restaurant with a great view.

                    Location is close t Historic area but more important if you intend using subway or bus it is very convenient. Great value and staff are wonderful.

                    If noise bothers you get an inside room.

                    Nothing.

                    This is my first time visit to the hotel. The reception staff not very helpful, they give so much problem. When arrived, they said they don't have a reservation under my name. It took 1 hous to setlle. And the internet very poor connection.

                    Breakfast was fair.

                    I did not get the room I reserved. They would change my room. They lied to me about not having more rooms available. No A/C window did not open. Towels were really old. Staff was not helpful. I know it says no complaints but I'm really upset.

                    Location is super! Next to metro stop Hidalgo and close to the historical center. The breakfast buffet has a lot of choice and is really good. Good price/value.

                    The hotel looks a bit old and the carpet in the hallways are with stains. The rooms are basic but ok, however the windows have only single glass and as it is next to the main road there is a lot of noice the whole night.

                    Nothing, absolutly nothing.

                    I won't recommend this hotel. First when I arrived they couldn't find my reservation, after 3 hours waiting they gave me a room, very dirty, tv didn't work , there was no internet as they said, there was not paper view, they advertised many things that they do no have, the carpet was very dirty and smell bad. Good breakfast buffet if you get up early , if no you just get the left over.

                    Breakfast buffet, location and courteousness of the staff.

                    It was difficult to connect to the inernet.

                    the only positive thing was the the great breakfast (a very large selection of choices at the buffet with very nice staff at the restaurant).

                    staff at the front desk don' t care of you as a guest (be very patient for checking out even if you don' t have anything else to pay, staff take care of guests according to how loud/fast you are in letting you know to them, they don' t take care on who is first on line, which is very rude. rooms are very dark and unconfortable (if you walk without shoes on the carpet you will get very dirty black feet, the floor is not even straight giving you the feeling the building may fall down at any time, air condition just very noisy and not cooling at all, no safety chain/locker at the door and bathroom door in poor condition as it was broken and you could not close it properly, taxis at this hotel give you a fare when you ask for the info before taking them but ask you for an even more expensive fare when arriving at destination. i felt like leaving this hotel at once and so did i as staying one single night there was more than enough for me.

                    location and staff

                    very old and bad mantained. Fontan "Reforma" should stand for "an indeep reform is needed".

                    The hotel has a good breakfast and its location is perfect.

                    The rooms in the front of the hotel are too noisy. There are musicians who start to play at 6:30 am every day! Also, there is no wireless internet at rooms, only at the lobby.

                    Staff in the restaurant were very nice, and there is quite a good view from there.

                    Honestly, this was one of my worst hotel experiences ever. Reception staff was slow and inefficient and apparently read Kafka as a working manual. Paperwork was immense which caused heavy queues. We got a room without aircondition on one of the top levels, facing the boulevard. There is no sound insulation what so ever, which means that we practically lived on the boulevard. Next day we asked for another, more quiet room. Staff told us that we had to empty our room and wait three hours. When we came back, it turned out the new room was on one of the bottom levels, still facing the noisy boulevard. Then we had to wait yet another two hours for a quiet room. Finally, I went to the reception to get the keys for our quiet room, but still a lot of paperwork had to be done and I was told to wait a moment. As this was the case, I decided I might as well use the reception lavatory. Of course I end up with a jammed door/lock pounding the door to get out. This went unnoticed by the reception for twenty minutes until an alert guest notifies them. For about ten minutes nothing happens. Then two janitors start asking me to open the door. Obviously, this was the problem - I couldn't open it. Then they ask me to twist the lock, which was of course not possible either. After 45 minutes I finally get out to my screaming dead beat kid of 10 months who hadn't been able to sleep all day, because we hadn't had a room, and who had slept poorly all night because of the high noise level at the hotel. Furthermore, I challenge anyone to find a right angle at the hotel. The floors incline to one or the other side, as do the walls.
