First, the positives: safe neighborhood (altho far from the Metro),excellent hot shower, nice rooftop bar. Their trademark "wind-up" vintage Chevy out front always made me grin. And unlike previous TripAdvisor reviewers, I found the front desk and breakfast room staff to be accomodating and very friendly.

The room itself was lacking: no coffeemaker (at these rates we should get a free Mr. Coffee every day!), 3 hangers and a wacky key system by which if you want to access the fridge, you need to turn off all the electricity in the room. The sole tiny table was stacked high with design magazines, as if to convince the guest of how trendy the place is. (I kept moving the magazines to the closet so we could actually use the one table, but housekeeping kept moving them back...cute.) Check-out took way too long (because housekeeping had to inventory the 100 or so mini-bar items.)

I could live with all this, but the noise was inexcuseable. Ever sleep in a disco? Several nights a week (including weeknights), a discoteca inside the hotel blasted "trance" music from about 10 pm to well past 1:00 a.m. The hotel erected "sound barriers" to protect suffering guests, but they're paper-thin jokes. When the party broke up, drunken crowds lingered outside, yelling, fighting, revving motorcycles. To compound this insanity, every morning at 5:30 a.m., two guys set up an official looking table on the street just below our window and proceeded to laugh, scream and blast a radio until sunrise.

Obviously, hotel management made a calculated decision that operating a disco for young locals outweighs the lost revenue from travelers like me who will not return.

I did not stay there there- just went for drinks on a Friday night to their rooftop bar. A friend had said it was very "Miami beach." Although I don't think that is a great description, we did have a great time. The place was packed with yuppies, but the manager found us a table. There are couches, small cushion type ottamans etc. around cocktail tables. The service was very fast. We had an order of sushi and it was delicious. It was a little expensive (40 peso cervezas, 120 peso for Herradura reposada), but so much fun. There was a jacuzzi but I didn't see anyone in it.

This has been positively reviewed by all the world's premium / boutique hotel guides. It is excellent. It is in the most bohemian (and safest?) area of Mexico City; full of interesting buildings, parks, restaurants and bars. Everything about it has great style, whilst also being practical and welcoming (except perhaps the breakfast staff?) The roof terrace is a joy. Don't stay anywhere else in Mexico City.

This an Amaazing Designer Hotel located in one of the best zones in mexico city, you can walk anywhere, anytime, there are plenty restaurants, bars, museums in within 20 miles away, the rooms are clean and cozy.
What i loved the most was the service, everyone was willing to help ever since check in to the check out.
The breakfast buffet very varied and filling.
We spend a great time at the terrace, you should come and try the martini´s, by far the best we had ever tried.
Excellent hotel if you ever come to mexico city!
