How to Get There
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.
The management at Hippodrome is completely unethical. They treat guests with no respect!
The management cancelled our pre-paid booking less than 24hrs before check-in, then blamed the booking platform (hotels.com). When we checked with Hotels.com, we were told A) there was no issue with the platform, and B) that our room was cancelled because the Hippodrome received a higher rate on a different booking platform. Apparently, an "upscale" hotel like Hippodrome has no qualms about selling out their returning customers in favor of the highest bidder.
To make matters worse, the hotel took no accountability and did not help us find a new hotel. We were homeless in a foreign country during the busiest time of year.
Avoid this hotel! There are many other good hotels in the Condesa & Roma neighborhoods.
My experience was awful. A reservation was made several weeks prior to our arrival and upon our 8 pm arrival we were told that the hotel was overbooked(“it happened to ten other people” -hippodrome employee). My credit card had already been charged(overcharged) and no one emailed us or called to notify us of the issue. Extremely awful way to start our trip in Mexico. Would advise that no one risks booking with this hotel knowing the chance of reservation being randomly unavailable at arrival of check in. So disappointed in this experience and am waiting for a response from staff.
