Inexpensive hotel near WTC?

Can't Post | Private Reply
Anybody know of an inexpensive, or at least reasonably priced - say around 500 pesos per night or less - hotel near the World Trade Center? It's just off Insurgentes Sur, near the Polyforum Bldg. Thanks.

No, sorry, we have never stayed in that area. I find Google Maps useful for locating possible lodgings. In that area, I have so far spotted Dakota Bed and Breakfast, which is somewhat higher than $500 pesos, but does include breakfast.

Have a look at the Hotel Escandon, http://www.hotelescandon.com/index.html, which isn't too far from the WTC and has rates more kindly to your budget.

Disclaimer: I have never stayed in any of these.

Thank you!!!

I don't know that area at all, and was looking for a couple possibilities since it's a "gift-trip" for someone else and it's coming up pretty quickly.

Here's a hotel that friends often use when they visit, on Álvaro Obregón near Insurgentes. It's probably just as close as the Hotel Escandón (in a slightly different direction), transportation is better from the Milán, and the price is less.

We've stayed at the Hotel Milán many times (although since switching our allegiance to the cheaper Hotel Embassy). The Milán is quite nice, although the rooms tend to be a bit small. I didn't mention it in my first reply because I don't think of it as being close to the WTC. It has, however, perhaps the most centric location of any decent hotel in the Álvaro Obregón corridor in Colonia Roma Norte.

T, that's a tough one, especially for that rate. There's a City Express (Insurgentes Sur) near the World Trade Center, and I'm seeing various prices for a room there, depending on the website. Good luck!

If this reply isn't too late, have a look at the Hotel Roosevelt, on Avenida Insurgentes Sur at the eastern edge of Condesa-Hipódromo.

Ah yes, the Roosevelt! A friend of mine from California always stays there.

Thanks TigerTonio and Anonimo! It's not too late so the ideas are appreciated. The other half is currently holding a reservation at the Dakota B&B that Anonimo linked previously. We'll see what he decides after sending the new ideas. Cheers and gracias.

Here's another one, fairly close to the WTC: Hotel El Greco.

Never been there myself. There are reviews on Tripadvisor.
