Hotel Villa Condesa
You can say adiós to hectic Mexico City from the moment you set foot in the Villa’s leafy lobby...
W Mexico City
One of the four sentinels opposite the Auditorio Nacional, this 25-floor business hotel is determined to break away from the stodginess of its neighbors. Minimalist rooms include silken hammocks hanging in the shower area.
Gran Hotel Ciudad De Mexico
The Gran Hotel flaunts the French art nouveau style of the prerevolutionary era...
Choose from refurbished ‘standard’ digs in this hotel’s older section or pricier ‘superior’ rooms in the new wing. A heated indoor pool awaits on the top floor. Just 1½ blocks from Reforma.
Nh Centro Historico
Riding the downtown development wave, Spanish chain NH planted a branch in the center. Lounges and rooms get a Euro-minimalist treatment, and spacious suites occupy the curved corners of the aerodynamically designed 1940s structure.
An affordable option by Polanco standards, the large suites here give you plenty of bang for your buck. The Castelar has no common areas, but breakfast is served at your door.
Architect Enrique Norten turned a functional apartment building into a smart boutique hotel. Decor in the 36 rooms is boldly minimalist, and the rooftop bar, Área, is a hot nightspot.
A business travelers’ hotel on the east end of Álvaro Obregón, the Stanza makes a cushy, relatively inexpensive launching pad or re-entry chamber. Nearby bars and restaurants are hopping on weekends.
The remodeled Marlowe stands across from Chinatown’s pagoda gate. Above a bright, airy lobby are spacious rooms with good carpets, colorful bedspreads, soothing art and inset lighting. Fitness freaks will appreciate the gym with a view.
Just a few blocks from the Zócalo, the Isabel is a longtime budget-traveler’s favorite, offering large, well-scrubbed rooms with old but sturdy furniture, high ceilings and great balconies, plus a hostel-like social scene.
On the eastern edge of Condesa and within easy reach of the Cuban club district, this friendly if functional hotel should appeal to nocturnally inclined travelers.
Hotel La Casona
This stately mansion was restored to its early-20th-century splendor to become one of the capital’s most distinctive boutique hotels. Each of the 29 rooms is uniquely appointed to bring out its original charm.
La Casita Del Patio Verde
Tucked away on a cobblestoned street, the tranquil Casita has three rustic-chic guestrooms and, of course, its namesake verdant garden. The cabaña (cabin) room, off the garden, comfortably sleeps four. Reservations are required...
Hotel Del Principado
Conveniently poised between the Zona Rosa and Colonia Roma, this friendly little place makes a nice cocoon. The carpet has been replaced with faux wood floors and the keys have been updated to cards.
Hostel Mundo Joven Catedral
Backpacker central, this HI affiliate is abuzz with a global rainbow of young travelers. Dorms are tidy and guests relish the rooftop bar, yet it’s not the quietest of hostels.
A good-value option in the pleasant and central Cuauhtémoc neighborhood, the Hotel Bristol caters primarily to business travelers, offering quality carpet, soothing colors and also an above-average restaurant.
Hotel Del Angel
Nearby construction has blocked views of the iconic monument this establishment is named after, but rather than brood, the hotel has jazzed up some of the rooms by adding postmodern furniture and fixtures.
Hotel San Diego
This generic option two blocks east of La Ciudadela should appeal to peso-pinchers. Above the lobby’s imitation leather sofas are decently sized rooms with furniture of a recent vintage and tiled bathrooms.
Casa De La Condesa
Right on the delightful Plaza Luis Cabrera, the Casa makes a tranquil base for visitors on an extended stay, offering ‘suites’ that are essentially studio apartments with kitchens. See the website for weekly rates.
Run by gregarious Asturians, the Palace has large, neatly maintained rooms, some with broad balconies giving terrific views down palm-lined Ramírez to the domed monument. Cash-paying guests get substantial discounts.
Off the lively Regina corridor, this 18th-century historic building was recently transformed into a happening hostel with new bunks, contemporary bathroom fixtures and a steady dose of rooftop parties.
Near the cheerful Plaza Santo Domingo, rooms off the Azores’ bright interior courtyards are neither large nor luxurious, but they’re quite a bargain and all are in excellent shape.
