Pretty good to stay.
Location, Price
Here is really good to find, I could find here without map. Look so old, but it seem to be have an old history. Compared to other hotel, Here is cheaper than the others. It isn't properly soundproofed, so I could hear everything that goes on next room. I couldn't open the window, so It was stuffy. and why they give us just one tower?

Why No Smiles?
bed-firm towels-big&thick Location-near shops/restaurants
I had to be at Principal 3 wks. front desk NEVER smiled at anyone/never greeted a guest; alwas too busy doing office work at front desk. Hotel has NO laundry for guests & not near a laundry. I always felt, as a guest of the hotel, that I was in the way. I rate their Customer Service as near zero.

Affordable Centrally Located Budget Hotel
The location, good security, responsive staff.
All in all, quite good. I was in Room 427 and the window has airleaks around the side that let mosquitoes in. I sealed them with tissue paper and it was fine.

Good stay, for price you pay
The location, the staff and cleanliness
Was average, quite noisy at night, room reminded us of a prison cell but actually it was clean and the location made it worth the price and stay.

You get what you pay for!!
Cheap, free wifi and access to computers and printer, good location!
The budget room we stayed in was similar to that of a prison cell. Beds were uncomfortable, terrible pillows and very stuffy. Though for the price and the location it was expected. Location was fantastic, staff weren't too friendly though not really an issue. We wanted a cheap place to sleep and that's what we got. If you are a backpacker looking for a room! I recommend this.... If your looking for a nice place to stay in Mexico... Maybe try somewhere else...

Sehr zufrieden
Sehr zentrale Lage. Preis Leistung gut. Sauberkeit
Das Hotel Prinzipal war unser erster Aufenthalt auf unserm Trip durch zentral und Süd Amerika. Für Low Budget Traveller sehr geeignet, die Zimmer waren stehst sauber und die Lage ist wirklich Super (México Center ca. 10 Minuten bis zocalo, sehr sicher auch abends). Das einzige was es zu bemängeln gäbe ist die hohe Geräuschkulissen der Hotel eigenen Gäste (räume sehr hellhörig und das Personal fängt sehr früh an zu "Putzen"). Für uns persönlich war dös kein Problem aber für leichtschläfer evtl schon.
