Room Mate Valentina

Amberes 27, Mexico City, Quintana Roo, 06600, Mexico

The only Mexico location from this Spanish chain that looks for the sweet spot among budget-location-style. Rooms are minimalist and quirky: walls are awash with electric colors, the furniture is asymmetrical, the accents are futuristic. Flat-screen TVs and free Internet access in every room are nice touches. Suites on the top floor all have balconies with decent views.

In the heart of the Zona Rosa, a longstanding LGBT neighborhood, this is a good choice for budget-conscious LGBT travelers.

room

Rooms are surprisingly roomy for the prices, and suites are a bargain. The decor ranges from kids-room garish to cutting-edge modern, depending on the room and your perspective. Beds are on low platforms.

YOU SHOULD KNOW The neighborhood, while central, is chaotic and a bit seedy at night. Bring earplugs if noise is a concern.

LOCATION

Getting Around

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. The hotel is in the heart of the Zona Rosa, with easy access to Roma and Condesa.

Restaurants

Hiyoko Yakitori-Ya (10-minute walk) is a traditional, if upscale, yakitori bar; don't miss the baby corn grilled in its husk with soy butter. A branch of the Paris chain, Maison Kayser (9-minute walk) is a textbook French Boulangerie and patisserie. Barro Negro (6-minute walk) serves homey Oaxacan cuisine, and particularly good breakfasts.

Bars

Take in the city's hot cocktail scene at Xaman (4-minute walk), an underground bar with a prehispanic theme. Cicatriz Café (11-minute walk) is an all-day café that morphs into a hopping bar scene at night, with creative cocktails and intriguing natural wines.

WHY WE LIKE IT

Few budget hotels come with this much exuberant style (and free breakfast and wifi).
