Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Polanco

Edgar Allan Poe 8, Mexico City, Quintana Roo, 11560, Mexico See on Map

This small hotel right off Parque Lincoln and not far from Chapultepec Park offers an exclusive Polanco zip code at a much better price than the larger hotels nearby.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Though in the heart of Polanco, it's a large neighborhood; the Soumaya, Jumex, and Anthropology Museums, for example, are a 25-minute walk.


Tidy rooms--some carpet, some with hardwood flooring--with flat-screen TVs, free wifi, and heat and air conditioning.

Junior suites offer much more space for not much more money.


Clean but bare-bones, with hair dryers.


Marble floors and dark-wood furniture accent the cozy lobby.


Fitness center with modern equipment, open 24 hours.


La Bottiglia restaurant serves Italian cuisine, though you're walking distance to some of the city's best restaurants.


Getting Around

Though many of the neighborhood's restaurants and parks are a short walk, you'll need taxis to go beyond the neighborhood.


Guzina Oaxaca (8-minute walk) is one of the city's best options for Oaxacan cuisine, in a serene environment. People of all ages and classes rub shoulders at Turix (4-minute walk), a scrappy taquería specializing in the rich Yucatecan pork preparation cochinita pibil.


Cigar Bar Delegados (6-minute walk) is just that, a place to buy and enjoy the world's finest cigars over drinks. An unmarked door leads you down to Jules Basement (8-minute walk), a hip speakeasy with interesting cocktails.


A great choice when you want to stay in Polanco without paying the usual high Polanco prices.
