NileGuide Expert tip:
Be sure and ask to see several of the rooms that are available, some of them are quite small.
It is easy to drive by this hotel and miss it. It is also easy not to be impressed when you walk in. Not much in terms of a lobby or a restaurant but I guarantee it will charm you once you enter your room.
This hotel used to be a luxury apartment building when it opened in the 1920's and this part of the city was where the upper classes lived. It was remodeled a few years ago and each of the rooms has a completely different decor giving each room it's own personality and feeling. The colors of the walls all differ as well as the type of furniture and size of the rooms.
The windows have double pane glass and you can barely hear the sound of the cars below, although you do hear them a bit. This hotel is in the Condesa neighborhood so you can walk to all the boutiques, restaurants and shops that dot the area. Only two blocks away you will find the Mexican department store El Palacio de Hierro and the well known Sanborn's restaurant.
Reforma Avenue and the Zona Rosa are about ten blocks away, so you could walk but you will use up your energy before getting to the museums or starting your sightseeing so it might be better to take a cab.
This is a very small and popular hotel, so reservations in advance are strongly recommended.
