Very good 8.0
Nice place to rest
Clean,basic but nice place, there are regulations for use of pool but do not follow it, parking is reduced when it is full you can not leave if you do not remove the cars from the passage, lack of additional service like coffee maker, no air conditioner.

Some pros, some cons
On the one hand, not a nice neighborhood, and most special requests (like for late check out or using a microwave for a moment) were answered with “no”. On the other, clean, bright, spacious rooms, high water pressure and plenty of hot water, nice pool and outdoor area. Closest great coffee is Caracol Purpura (7 min walk), 15 minute walk to the downtown centre (good if you’re obsessed with getting a lot of steps per day as I am), 10 min walk to best bakery in Mexico (Boulenc), 15 min walk to the Guelaguetza stadium if you’re adventurous and like climbing stairs.

Hotel Santa Helena Plaza
The hotel was very peaceful and the room was super clean. There aren’t many amenities but the room rates are quite inexpensive. The furnishings offer old world Mexican charm but bed linens and towels could use an upgrade. The location is a short walk to the big cathedral which is another few blocks to the Zocalo. The pool area is nice, There’s a pretty mural in the cantina area. The pool is not heated but probably very refreshing when it’s super hot. The staff was friendly and helpful when I needed to call a taxi. They are very hands off once you check in. I’d say this is a good value hotel and seemed to have mostly nationals as guests.

Good 6.0
Bare bones, but fine
The hotel and the pool were clean and cute, and the staff was nice. The cleaning staff actually did a great job every day... leave them a tip, they deserve it. The beds were comfortable. The restaurant was not open during our visit and it did not appear to have been for some time. It was just a covered patio next to the pool with some dining sets. There was a vending machine in the lobby which was unplugged at night and remained unplugged until a guest would attempt to use it in the morning. This meant that the beverages were warm until enough time had passed for the refrigeration to do its job. No ice machine. The location is fairly central. Its just a 10 minute walk from the Zocalo, there are street vendors all around for fruit, tacos, and shops to purchase beverages. Overall, it is clean, close to the landmarks and parks, but definitely not for those who want to walk out of their hotel right into a main tourist area or pretty coloniel architecture. You have to pay more to be closer to that. The hotel was primarily empty, which felt a little odd. Parking available on premise. The pool makes it worthwhile, bring your own snackes, beverages, a speaker and enjoy. Suggested for younger travelers on a budget, not for older guests or those who need more amenities then just the very basics.
