Hotel Carlota is a trendy renovation of an old space, with an open restaurant in front, an infinity pool and a boutique shop as you walk in on the right. the hotel is in the Cuauhtemoc barrio which is good for business or government and central but as far a walking barrio, it isa better to be in La Condesa, el Centro, Coyocan or Polanco.
the service is veeerrry bad. SO if you are not looking for service or windows, but want a cool vibe, this is the place to stay.

Worst Experience I have had ever
Reviewed 2 months ago

I have to start with the fact that the restaurant and his manager and staff were incredible and they were the ones that redeemed the experience and why I did not call police.

I will highly recommend any other hotels but this one. I have worked in hospitality for 20 years and this is the first time something gets stollen from my room. I tried to talk to front desk they did not do much even when I told them this is serious.

The manager later on told me that only the made has been in my room and she is with them since the opening of the hotel so there is no way she did it. So really they did not believe me either and I heard from staff too that they said I am making this up. Mistake they thought I don't speak Spanish.

The room I was given did not even have a desk, the air conditioning was at 26 degrees no mater what you do to try to reduce it. So I had to have a table with uncomfortable chair brought in and I had nowhere to plug in my computer but the plug by the bed so you cannot work really.

We were advised when booking that Thursday night there will be a party but not the fact that they will be working on organzining the party for 2 days so sitting by the pool was not an option for the 4 days I was there. The party was loud which is normal but none advised that as the logo on the bottom of the pool have to be changed to the Gin they were advertising they will be emptying the pool and then filling it again with water at 4.30am which was exceptionally loud.

My water ran yellow for 20 min one of the mornings when I had to get ready to go out for business meetings.

After working in hospitality for 20 years and visiting over 3000 hotels I have NEVER seen anything like this. From client satisfaction point the manager should have turned and said we will comp a night for the loss or give you a free meal. This is what I would do if I was running a hotel.

Trendy, pricy, zero comfort.

I was there with 9 other people for a bachelorette party, with 5 rooms. It is very imaginative to turn an industrial warehouse to a hotel but did anyone think of comfort and practicality?
1- Bathrooms floorlenght windows open up to hallways so walking by you can smell fresh feces.
2- the sink is outside bathroom right next to the bed so you can witness the other person's hygiene rituals right next to you.
3- The elevator is not practical.
4- Windows open to concrete walls and if the shades are open you have zero privacy by people walking to their rooms.
4- All the fancy drinks in the room and not one floor length mirror.
5- We had lunch and not one person was happy with the food. Overpriced bellow average " fusion".
6- And the noise!!!!! THE NOISE!!! THE rooms face the patio with the bar and the restaurant echoing the sound. There was AANOYING music from 6 AM to midnight in the patio. We all felt our BEDS were inside a noisy restaurant/bar.
Pluses:
1- Great location with steps to Reforma, restaurants and museums.
2- Nice pool.
3- Helpful staff.
Not worth the price for all that discomfort.

Safe, accommodating, great location!

Cutest hotel in a great location. I would recommend for a first time stay in Mexico City. The staff was extremely accommodating and had great service. There was security late at night guarding the entrance. We arrived very late on Thursday night (11:40pm) and the first room we checked in to was on the 1st floor with minimal windows. I don't think my husband and I even had to say anything before they offered to switch our room the next morning. They took care of moving all our luggage while we were out exploring the next day. They also stored our luggage after we had checked out as we were taking the red eye that night. We loved the L'Occitane bath products and funky decor of the rooms. One minor thing I will note - we stayed here for a friend's wedding and there were no floor length mirrors. That made getting ready a little tough, but nothing major.

To the staff: we would recommend a small upgrade of adding floor length mirrors to the rooms. Other then that, delightful stay!

The rooms are cool but the lack of service is dismal!

They really came across as a newbie wannabe: trying to be cool and failing miserably.
Front Desk, portiere, pool staff work really hard at avoiding any kind of engagement as – I assume- this may result in some kind of work for them.
No valet parking after 11 pm; You have to bang really loud a garage next door to wake up the parking staff and get access to the lot.
The Front desk has zero info about the fabulous place area they are in; When we showed up at 8:30 a.m. to have coffee ( they did not open till 9 am) their recommendation was to walk across Reforma and go to Starbucks - ☺
Hint hint: there is fabulous café 20 steps from you right at the corner of Reforma hat has better bread than DaSilva, Maison Kaiser or Pain Quotidien.
Hotel: Do yourself a favor and invest in training your staff to, for starters, greet guest with a “good morning!”
Potential Guest: for design and service go to hotel Habita Downtown
