I only had a 12 hour layover in Mexico City and wanted a place to use the restroom, shower, recharge my electronics, and use the free Wi-Fi. I booked the Templo Mayor Mexico City hotel for 2,600 AA miles. The nearest metro station to the hotel is Zocalo, which is also known as Constitution Square. It’s only a 10 minute walk from the Zocalo Metro station to the hotel.

The Templo Mayor Hotel is located in Centro Historico on San Ildefonso Street.
I checked into the hotel in the afternoon with no intention of staying overnight at the hotel. I told the front desk lady that I was only going to be here for a few hours and she said that was okay. She handed me a TV remote control with an old school key (no electronic locks) attached with a room number.
The hotel lobby has a pretty cool looking Aztec fountain and the room layout was an open atrium style.
The standard room had an extra firm king size bed, medicine cabinet, and a mounted LCD TV. It’s definitely a basic and no frills hotel.
The bathroom was the best part about the room as it contained old Spanish architecture. It reminded me of my stay at the La Quinta Resort hotel in La Quinta, CA. There was a working toilet, sink, and shower with hot water.
The Wi-Fi internet was free and working fast with multiple devices. The room also contained a free bottle of water. Overall, I’m glad I chose this hotel during my short 12 hours in Mexico City. I only used the room for a few hours which was more than enough. I would highly recommend staying here if you have a short layover and/or don’t want to spend a lot of money on a nicer hotel.
