How much spending money should I bring to Mexico City and what places should I avoid at night?

I was thinking $300 (not including hotel expenses) for a 5 day stay in Mexico City, also what are good hotels that are within the city?

    Here is a good guide to neighborhoods and where to stay in Mexico City.

    You can certainly eat on $300, but you might not be able to do much else. You do have to be a little careful. Get taxis at the official taxi stands- don't flag one down- or have your hotel call one for you. Don't flash money, and don't get drunk in bars.

      Adding to what Gypsyfish advised you, the atm teller machines can give you all the pesos you need and if you have a Bank of America account you can go to Scotia Bank atms so they will not charge you an exchange fee...check for an arrangement with your bank in Mexico.
