How to Get There
i saw the other reviews and was somewhat bewildered, i love this hotel, it is close to the center of the city without being too close and the streets in the surrounding blocks were safe for walking at night. Lots of good and street food options. They have the Tianguis right outside twice, which is like a real market with great food throughout.
i want to add that i am a gringo traveling with my Mexican family, and also that we have never been molested by anyone in the city.
My husband was on a solo trip to Mexico City. He's not particularly fussy about hotels. This is what he said "The hotel is utterly unimpressive. Saggy floors in the corridors. Musty smell. Tiny room. Stained wrinkled carpets. But the bed is very firm, it's quiet, and there are no serious problems."
As we were arriving to the Hotel Stella Maris the Uber driver said that this was NOT a good street (Sullivan 69) because it was full of prostitutes and suggested not to go for a walk around there. I thought he was exaggerating but unfortunately he wasn't. We checked in and payed in full for 6 nights. At night time I got bit by bedbugs and one of my fingers got swollen. Too bad I didn't take pictures of it otherwise it would have been easier to get a refund with such evidence. I went to talk to someone at the Front Desk at 1am and explained the situation and he said it was okay that they would only charged me one night for which I agreed. The next morning my husband turned in the key and we left the hotel. I called a couple of days later because I hadn't receive a refund and they said they couldn't give me a refund because I didn't ask for it when I first left. I guess they thought I was going to pay for all 6 nights to reward their HORRIBLE SERVICE. I am still trying to get a refund and I hope I do. Overall, rooms are really outdated, beds have bedbugs (at least the one in 404) the restroom seemed to be very clean. Elevators are old and not well taken cared of; they are also carpeted. Please be advice that you need to jump in as soon as possible because it may crush you on your way in. The Lobby and the Restaurant are probably the nicest/clean things the hotel has. Manager Eduardo was extremely rude and uncooperative about giving me a fair refund for my one night stay. He lacks customer skills and should be sent to training. Brenda was also very unprofessional and not helpful in the sense of providing me with names of the people I needed to talk to about getting a refund.
You get what you pay for I guess. My room only had one electrical outlet and it was behind the TV which might sound silly but to not be able to charge you phone/alarm/clock next to your bed is very annoying. The shower also does not drain, was dirty (even had long hair in it) and the faucet handle broke off when I turned it on. Other than that, the rooms are as expected. Mine was small but aside from the shower and some hair on the bedsheet, it was very clean.
This was the only reasonable hotel I could find during the Easter holidays. My regular hotel had no rooms so we chose this one. We arrived at 4 am from Oaxaca and amazingly we did not have to wait for our room so we had a good sleep before our friends arrived. I thought the bed seemed larger than the queen size we had reserved and when I our friends arrived, I realized that we had been given the king size they had reserved and they were given a queen. The room was somewhat small but clean and had a built-in dresser and luggage area. The king size bed was very comfortable. The very clean bathroom had ample mirrors but the "tub" was really just a 1/2 tub usable for showering. The two negative points were the bathroom light was overhead which was useless for shaving and the maid left open the service area door in the hall which was not a nice sight. The restaurant looked very nice but the buffet breakfast cost more than Sanborn's. Unfortunately, we missed the Sunday art market held in front of the hotel but I have caught it in the past and it is worth visiting. The location, about three blocks from the Paseo de la Reforma, is good and there are taxis waiting outside with posted prices to most locations. If I didn't know my regular hotel, I might choose this one but I know better ones for the price.
