How to Get There
This hotel feels slightly over-priced and misleading.
Some positives: 24hr. front desk is very nice; and we enjoyed the treats and water in our room each evening. Bed is comfortable. Location is very good.
What gives me pause: the room is a pretty tight space. The hallway is unnecessarily very dark for some reason, and not in a cool, trendy way. There is loud music in the lobby in the afternoon/evening that you are forced to listen to if your room is on the second floor - music is nice, just not sure why it needs to be that loud? The television has maybe 8 channels :( but you can get Netflix!
The lighting in the bathroom isn't very good, and there is no hot water for at least 15-20 minutes. This is my biggest complaint. If you have somewhere to be (airport maybe?) either give yourself an extra 20 minutes, take a shower the night before (you still need that extra 20 minutes), or just enjoy taking a cold shower. This is a HUGE waste of water that really bummed me out. It's pretty inefficient. Cold showers might be ok at an eco-friendly hotel in the jungle, but for a city hotel that tries to be "luxury" this shouldn't be a problem. The water will just slowly start to get slightly warmer when you see the lights flicker. We stayed three nights. I would not stay here again.
My husband and I stayed here for two nights. Overall a lovely hotel to stay at!
The staff was amazing; friendly, helpful and cordial
The beds are super comfy...soft and clean sheets with a high thread count:)
The area is wonderful to stay in, great cafés, restaurants, bars etc.
Centrally located in CDMX
Quiet neighborhood...you forget you’re in a large city...right in front of a lovely park
The included continental breakfast is mediocre
You get charged for little bottled water
Rooms are smaller that pictured
You have to wait 15 min for hot water if you’re taking a shower
Ask for the rooms with street facing windows, the others can be claustrophobic( staff kindly changed our room after a half day when original room felt a little “coffin- like”)
All in all, I would stay there again...Can’t beat the neighborhood!
My wife and I stayed for four nights in the Hippodrome, which has a perfect location in the trendy, green Condesa section of town, directly across from Parque Mexico, which is one of the most beautiful parks we ever saw. There are excellent small restaurants and cafes all around (one of the closest being the El Moro hot chocolate-churro place, about two blocks away, which is a real institution). The hotel itself was very pleasant--nice, small rooms, well-equipped, and a very accommodating staff. Nothing bad to say about it!
Polite professional and clean little hotel with a comfortable bed in a great location with all the necessities. Very pleased with this hotel but for a couple of curious things.One day housekeeping put very damp nearly wet sheets on the bed. The other odd thing was that a laundry service was offered which was mediocre and quite expensive.
Nevertheless thought this a great little place!
The place is small and so are the rooms, but the room are nicely appointed with good products. What really makes the difference with this hotel is the lovely lovely staff. They are welcoming, helpful and go beyond the necessary. I recommend it. I will return.
