Accommodation in Mexico City ranges from budget hostels to some of the swankiest hotels in the country, but the best-value places can fill up quickly, so booking ahead is always a good idea. Most places have 24hr reception desks and are geared for late arrivals and early departures, and with reasonably cheap taxi fares into the Zócalo or Zona Rosa, it seldom makes financial sense to stay near the bus stations or airport. However, if you arrive especially late or are just in transit and need a place to rest up for a while, there are places to stay that are very handy for the airport and Terminal del Norte.
