Excellent location

Location & staff
The location is the best.
Gunther O. Solo travelers Mexico, June 1, 2014
slightly below expectations

central location, professional staff, affordable prices
The 500 West Hotel commands a very good location on West Broadway (across the street from the Westin and a couple blocks from Sante Fe station). Access to the airport is quick and convenient on the 992 Bus ($2.25 USD each way). The hotel is an antique building with a pretty facade and operates as a hostel with private and shared rooms. I reserved an individual room that was acceptably spacious and provided a medium closet. The room had a small-screen TV and telephone. Overall, it was clean and comfortable - although lighting could have been better. The shared bathrooms offered adequate size and were clean but had a faint smell of humidity caused by a lack of fresh air due to absence of windows. I would recommend upgrading the hand soap and (very particularly) the shampoo. Staff members at reception were efficient, frinedly, and professional.

It's wonderful.

Wonderful location, clean shared bathroom, kind housekeeper
Everything is good. The hotel is kind to those people so I am not mad at all.

the location for the hotel is great

location, location and location. that's all, nothing is great about this.
it's a hostel, not a hotel! only one of the 2 lift is working during out stay, and it's really slow. room was small and old.

Affordable, clean , adequate

Location, price, cleanliness
It was great. Even though it's shared toilet you'll be surprised at it's cleanliness. There was good internet connection as well. The hotel is close to tourist areas and 10 minutes to a shopping mall.

It's a great stay here

morning fruit, clean, fast wifi
The hotel offer free morning fruit for guests. The wifi is really fast. The room is also very clean. And the price is reasonable.

great location

cheap price
the location is very good. the horton plaza is nearby and the trolley station American Plaza is just 3-min walk away. but the room is small and there is some kind of smell all the time...
Wei Q. Couples Singapore, July 30, 2012
Budget Hotel

Was one of the cheapest hotel around
500 West Hotel is technically a hostel more than a hotel. Has most of the ammenitites a hotel offer. Not very fantastic but is sufficient should you be travelling alone. Very near to trolley station which is a plus point is you are backpacking.
Adelbert E. Business travelers Philippines, July 27, 2012
Good for budget travelers, value for money hotel.

Value for money, very near the conference center, it is located in the city center.
