A modern hotel with refreshing design for bussinesPros: Valentina Hotel is in a prime location between the US Consulate and the Angel de la Independencia in Mexico City. Transportation from and to the hotel is fast and easy. It is very close to historic sites and many good restaurants. The staff is courteous and kind. The room design was very modern, cheery and refreshing. It felt luxurious with a touch of youth and freshness. We specially appreciated the nice desk area for laptops. Cons: My husband and I arrived there very tired and even a little sick from all the traveling. We wanted a hotel near the US Consulate, but we also expected a little bit more comfort. We would have liked a simple room service for coffee or tea since we were so tired (there wasn't). Also, a pamphlet or room menu with the cafeteria and buffet offerings and costs would have been useful. the rooms are not sound proof, since a lady woke us up with her loud International call at 2 am. Hotel Valentina is extremely practical for bussinesspeople, but definitely not for leisure or relaxing.
Best Breakfast Buffet EverPros: The breakfast buffet ($8 not included) was the best I have ever experienced and was available until 12:00 noon. The lobby and rooms were clean and modern. I noticed a gym, but I did not use. My room was large enough for sofa sitting for up to six. The bathroom and shower were large, and there were two toilets. Location is the biggest consideration: This may be one of the businest streets in town, at least in the Zona Rosa. There are many dance clubs and bars, especially gay, but all frequented by a mixed crowd. The street is alive with thousands on weekend nights with lots of street noise, but there was no street noise in my room. Many affordable places to eat within a few blocks. I highly recommend the hotel for the young or gay. Taxis always available outside, but there is a subway station just a few blocks away. Cons: No one showed me how to turn on the light by the bed, adjust the heat, or turn on the hotel provided music. I would not recommend the hotel for the elderly.
Great location/Great servicePros: My son and I were traveling to Mexico for a quick trip to see the sites. We loved the location of the hotel--close to the metro and close to good food and fun. The hotel staff was super knowledgeable and friendly. The breakfast was fresh with lots of yummy and healthy options. We would definitely choose to stay here again. Cons: The electrical outlets could be closer to the bed. We bought an extension cord at a mercado so we could charge our phones and have them near our bed for calls and alarms.
Kapow!Pros: My gf loved this room because it was super bright with color and had lights around the bed even. Real sexy and more like a Jr suite. It was clean and nice and had all kinds of stuff around it. Cons: It is in the gay area with the " Boy Bar " across the street and sex stores nearby. I was trying not to visualize all the butt pounding that probably went down in our room previously to us staying there. But there are a lot of fun lil bars that are normal nearby and it was safe. Don't drink in the streets though or the corrupt MX police will shake u down and steal all your money, watch, etc.
The hotel was a no-show, thanks to KayakCons: On arrival, the hotel advised that they did not have my reservation. Shown the email confirmation, the desk representatives merely shrugged their shoulders and said they were booked up. FAIL
