This hotel used to be the Hotel Jena. I have stayed here 4 times, including 2 nights of our honeymoon (junior suite was a huge room with a Jacuzzi). The lobby and the pool are modern. The rest of the hotel will make you feel like you are in the 60's. We got in after 2 in the morning and the staff said there would be absolutely no problem with our late arrival. The breakfast buffet was not included in our price, but we gladly paid for it and enjoyed it thoroughly.
All staff are kind and helpful. Located in at the old Mexico City. Close to a Metro station, easy to go other area.
The atmosphere, in side the hotel including the room, appears to maintain traditional Buildings of Mexico; .I like it.
At night, when any festival is held, it is rather noisy; although you can see it at the restraunt at top floor. .
The Hilton Reforma is wonderfully located, has wonderful restaurants, especially El Cardenal and the Terrace Restaurant on the 6th floor for breakfast. The concierge service is superb, in terms of walking tours, buying Folklorico tickets, tour arrangement, restaurant advice and transport arrangement. The front desk staff were friendly and efficient.
My wife and I had a wonderful experience. We saw the pyramids, the Lady of Guadalupe Churc, the excavations and museum at the Plaza Mayor, the Anthropology Museum, the Art Museum, walked around the Zocolo, the shopping street and partook of the nighttime festivities in the areas between the Hilton and the Zocolo.
We also got to experience Que Bo chocolate emporium, the Sir Winston Churcill Restauant and the Mexico v. Ecuador Soccer Match with locals in the Hilton Lobby Bar.
The only negative I can think of is that the hotel charge of $11/day for Internet service is excessive.

The Centro Historico is the cultural and retail center of Mexico City. In it you’ll find the Plaza de la Constitucion, or Zocalo, a bustling public square surrounded by historic buildings. One of these buildings is the Palacio Nacional, where murals by Diego Rivera are on display. Nearby is the excavation site of Templo Mayor, believed by the ancient Aztecs to be the center of the universe.
