Conveniently located on a quiet street in a not-quiet neighborhood, this modern hotel boasts a rooftop pool with sundeck, a secure underground parking lot, and 24-hour room service at a fair price.
Simple and clean, though most in need of some updates. Standard and even deluxe rooms are very small; spend a little more for a suite.
Very clean but basic and in need of updating.
YOU SHOULD KNOW Some of the showers are rather cramped, and situated so that the water can spill onto the carpet. Check the bathroom layout when you arrive.
Rooftop pool is small but has an adjoining whirlpool and large sundeck with views. There is also a pool bar with light bites.
Hotel staff can arrange outside spa services.
Small but modern and well-appointed fitness center.
Almara bills its food as "Mexi-terranean" and is quite good, though closed Sundays.
Mood Bar has good cocktails and is open until 1 a.m. 7 days a week.
The best way to get around Mexico City is via Uber or similar ride-share services, like Cabify and the by-women for-women Laúdrive.
Eat traditional sushi made with fish sourced from both Mexican and Japan at Rokai (9-minute walk); the omakase (set menu) is a bargain. Barro Negro (2-minute walk) serves traditional Oaxacan dishes in an upscale if businesslike, environment.
Plush couches, arcade games, and foosball make Can Can (10-minute walk) like the childhood living room of your dreams—plus booze. Jardín Chapultepec (7-minute walk) is one of the city's only outdoor beer gardens, with good mezcal and wine as well.
WHY WE LIKE IT
Central location, very friendly staff, and that rooftop pool and lounge.
