Lonely Planet review
Opposite the computer shopping center, this friendly relic of a hotel first opened its door a century ago as the Gran Hotel. Though it’s lost some of its grandness since then, it still offers plain rooms around a central hall with fountain. Romantically inclined guests often opt for the Jacuzzi-equipped suites.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Capitol and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Mexico City.
