Recent guest reviews

An amazing building in a great location for exploring all that the amazing Mexico City has to offer. The suite was well appointed and the service excellent. The only thing missing for us was a a kettle or coffee maker - but this was not necessary since 24 hour room service was available (and the coffees we ordered were not charged). As mentioned in previous reviews the lighting in the rooms is poor (20 watt bulbs) so you do need to take a torch or a lit mirror to put make up on. Other reviews have also mentioned the roof area being booked for private parties. This was the case when we were there. The music was loud and on until 3am. Not a problem for us as we slept through it and loved the hip ambience of the place. We hope to return.

Expensive room under an excessively loud nightclub. Impossible to sleep. Dark and hot room was beautiful but did not make up for the noise. Even if nightclub was not on top of us there was a loud restaurant below.

Went as part of two adult couples in two rooms. Beautiful old architecture, wonderfully modernized. A couple of great restaurants inside. Good rooftop bar. Felt very safe. The place gets really loud at night, but the rooms are very well insulated. We felt like we never had to leave, which was especially good at night. Only downside: Pool and "hot" tub were freezing.

This boutique hotel is a total gem in the heart of the historic center of Mexico City. I believe it has fewer than 20 rooms and mine was excellent! I had one of the Independence suites and it was very roomy. The only thing I found difficult about the room was the lighting - it just couldn't be brighter if you needed it to, and when you have to check out at 5AM it's a bit tricky to see. Aside from that, the value for what you pay and the relative security of the set up makes this hotel a bargain. Even the breakfast on the second level was extremely well done and Mexican and reasonably priced. Everywhere you go the food is catered to Americans away from home so it was really nice to have Mexican options on the menu. The downstairs restaurants are a bit more expensive but the service is top notch and the food matches the service level. The fact that the restaurant was full every single night, including weekdays speaks to the quality. The rooftop bar was average but the pool and the music were great!

Great night and day at downtown hotel! Location is excellent, close to everything in the centro historico! Very friendly staff and I even got upgraded to a bigger room. Beautiful large room, was able to listen to music and relax after a long day walkin in the city. 1 negative point though... very noisy in the evening due to the restaurant downstairs. Earplugs were fortunately provided, they are needed! Overall great stay at the hotel Thanks!

Downtown hotel looks amazing, you walk in to a busy foyer filled with trendy restaurants, get checked in and go upstairs past art displays, vertical walls of vegetation and cool shops to a room that is well laid out and furnished in a modern style. But somehow it just doesn't work. The rooms are dark (no windows) and the lighting is terrible - impossible to do makeup, no full length mirrors and the hairdryer powerpoint was no where near the bathroom or a mirror. There is very little storage for clothes or cases. The pillows are dreadful and the A/c was only just adequate. the staff while appearing helpful are actually not. That said we stayed in the basic room, perhaps the more expensive rooms would be better? It is centrally located and as we were only there for 2 nights that was very helpful.

Awesome rooftop bar. The courtyard below looks good but we just had drink so up top. The Mezcal cucumber cocktail is super good. We're heading back to Mexico City in a few weeks and will be sure to return here for more cocktails!

Rooms are huge, with high ceilings and a great mix of modern and old. Brilliant mural and old palazzo architectural details. Downstairs are two buzzy restaurants. The roofdeck has a good pool and jacuzzi with full service bar. Pricea are reasonable considering location and what you get.

We really loved this hotel, really good design and attention to detail in this interesting and considered conversion of a Condesa historic building. Friendly staff (tequila shots upon arrival), beautiful beds, great food selection just downstairs, beautiful green wall, regional boutique shopping, everything about it really. Hard to fault and we hope to return one day. Also, the staff recommended a great tour guide named Renee who was well worth his day fee navigating traffic and shortcuts, showing us some great highlights of Mexico City during our short stay.

Built in a 2000 year old church-like building, enjoy lofty ceilings, delicious food, a beautiful roof terrace and pool and attentive service. The rooms are very large, if a bit dark... nice terraces and good beds. Azul restaurant downstairs is not to be missed.
