What We Love
- The hotel’s relaxing Aqua Spa and range of holistic treatments
- Located in Polanco, a neighborhood packed with stellar restaurants and luxury boutiques including Chanel, Hermès and Cartier
- The modern glass building by starchitect Enrique Norten
What To Know
- Rooms here are no-fuss, but the real draw is the rooftop pool and deck (which can get busy) and prime location
- Like its nearby sister hotel, Condesa DF, the hotel gets booked up quickly for fashion weeks and art fairs
- The hotel lobby can be busy during breakfast; we recommend ordering the chef’s huevos rancheros
- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site
- Room Service
Designed by architect Enrique Norten, Hotel Habita offers minimalist yet stylish digs painted in muted gray and white tones, with wood elements and low-slung beds dressed in crisp white linens and topped with soft gray throws. The guestrooms feature flat-screen TVs and private terraces (in most), while the bathrooms are stocked with high-end Malin + Goetz products. In the lobby restaurant, executive chef Fernando Maya prepares a knockout huevos rancheros for breakfast, and for lunch and dinner a selection of sandwiches and as well as main dishes such as pulled drunken duck with tomato sauce and seared tuna with zucchini, cucumber and ginger-soy dressing. But the real draw here is the hotel’s rooftop terrace, which features a sunken swimming pool and a bar/lounge area complete with a firepit and unbeatable views of Mexico City.
In the Area
Chapultepec Park supplies the traffic-clogged city with much-needed green space and a raft of outdoor activities. Row a boat on the lake, visit the zoo, jog under the pine and jacaranda trees, or visit some of the city’s finest museums, including the Museo Tamayo (for installation art and modern sculpture) and the Anthropology Museum (for an overwhelming collection of ancient Aztec, Mayan and Zapotec artifacts). A young, late night crowd gravitates to trendy Ragga, while older locals love Joy Room.
How to Get There
Very friendly staff, it has a nice rooftop bar. Rooms are very clean and taken care of every day. The breakfast is continental but pretty rich and good. It is in the center of Polanco and easy to find.
I just spent 4 days in the Hotel Habita in Mexico City. I loved this hotel. A great location in the fashionable Polanco neighborhood. The rooms are spacious and light filled. Plenty of work space and very comfortable beds. This hotel has to be one of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in. The staff are super friendly and helpful. My wifi signal was a bit weak so I called the front desk and 5 minutes later a man appeared with a router and set it up quickly. Wifi worked great. The breakfast that is included is very good with lots of fresh fruit, pastries and excellent coffee. There is really nothing I can suggest that would have made my stay any better. I will most certainly be back and stay at the Habita. 5 stars!
I’m a frequent-flyer business-traveler. Someone entered my room at 4:30 am on Saturday Aug 11th 2018 (Friday night) while I was sleeping. I noticed the man coming towards me then I yelled. Thankfully he run away. I followed him thru the hallway yelling to feel secure but he quickly disappeared using the stairs. I called the front desk and they didn’t answer. Called 4 times until someone answer. The receptionist wasn’t surprised and only said that someone from housekeeping made a mistake and entered the wrong room. Superficial sorry and that was it. I complained with the reception and checked out but they didn’t comment any further or allowed me to speak with management. Didn’t call the police and decided to report it when I was safe at home. I don’t believe the housekeeping story. There’s no maintenance at 4am. I had the privacy tag on my door. Why did the guy enter the room? Why did he run/escape away if he was an employee in-function? Clearly they intended to rob me. My feeling is they knew I arrived late and thought I was probably wasted then sent someone to take anything available (watch, wallet, etc) which most likely I wouldn’t report the next day thinking I lost it on my own. You pay top dollars to stay in a boutique hotel in Polanco (safest area in Mexico City) only to be scared and not be able to sleep. I like boutique hotels but guess it is safer to stay at larger hotel chains in Polanco. Very disappointed. Definitively the worst night possible in a hotel, I almost had a heart attack!
This is a very hip hotel in a super fashionable neighborhood. The breakfast buffet was small but excellent. The front desk staff are great and offer a "Salud" with tequila on check in. The health center/pool were small but useable. The rooftop bar was sleek but usually empty. The free local papers were a nice touch. Next to a reliable cab stand or use Uber. Very close to restaurants, shops and parks.
Very sexy vibe on the edge of the ritzy Polanco area. Staff gets an A+ for being so
accommodating (got in at 6am and were even apologetic for having to make us wait till 819am to do early check in). Breakfast was ample w/ good quality. I like it when the hotel toiletries are things I (would) actually use at home. Clean. Good concept w/ styling however somewhat poorly executed. Noise was my main issue. Traffic and hammering (started at 7 am) through out the day (if you’re a light sleeper maybe ask for a quieter room, tried to drown it with the pipe in hotel music).
