How to Get There
First visit to a Mexico & Las Alcoa’s was first stop in a 3 wk trip. Other reviews are glowing and quite rightly. Staff are very attentive, quality furnishings are tasteful ,
breakfasts were a delight. However our stay was for 5 nights, after a couple of days
we felt ‘cabin fever’ - hot climate but nowhere to relax outdoors except for the pavement
cafe. I cannot cope well with traffic fumes. Another shortcoming, no bar or place to relax & meet friends only the cafe or small room in reception. We booked with reception a special dinner at their Restaurant Dulce Patria next close by. We arrived to be told no reservation!
Rather embarrassing then ‘fitted in’ half an hour later. Reception gave us no reasonable excuse.
So perfect? Not really. Very nice but not for us.
My husband, son, daughter-in-law, and I visited Mexico City to celebrate my birthday. This was the first visit to Mexico for my husband and me. To say we loved the city, the people, and the hotel is an understatement. The staff were impressive, warm, friendly, helpful, competent, and excelled at making us feel welcome. The Operations Manager, Señor Ricardo Lechuga, appeared to be provided by central casting in response to a request for the perfect Operations Manager. I would like to single out a few other staff for high praise, as well: Señor Aarón Caballero, Concierge (who got us tickets to the Ballet Folklorica, which we highly recommend), Señora Marina Arozamena, Señora Hazel, and Señor Ricardo. We also appreciated a number of high tech touches in our room (number 56 – a great corner room), like a handy panel that provided central control of lighting and curtains, as well as a number of other functions. The six-jet shower was a welcomed luxury, and we enjoyed the complimentary soft drinks and traditional snacks. The onsite restaurant, Anatol, had attentive, friendly staff and attractively-plated and flavorful food.
The Concierge helped my husband with his gift to me of a gorgeous floral arrangement, and the hotel gave me a small tasty cake complete with a lighted birthday candle.
The hotel’s upscale neighborhood is overflowing with interesting shops and restaurants, and it is close to Chapultepec, more commonly called the "Bosque de Chapultepec" (Chapultepec Forest) in Mexico City, one of the largest city parks in the Western Hemisphere. The National Museum of Anthropology and the Museum of Modern Art are in the park, along with huge interesting sculptures.
¡Muchas gracias por hacer nuestra visita a la Ciudad de México, y mi cumpleaños, maravillosamente memorable!
Superb hotel with excellent overall attention to detail. Expensive but very high quality, furniture, bedding, room tech, service. Ate breakfast which had amazing presentation and local flavour. Highly recommended.
Rated a 5 because the staff and service were outstanding. Helpful. Gracious. Engaging. A boutique property w/ only 35 rooms, the hotel boasts a terrific kitchen that creates amazing food. Situated in a beautiful neighborhood near a park that only discovered on last day there.
Really love the food here. Service is fast and very reasonably priced. The best food was the baked potatoes, but we enjoyed the salad and the carpaccio too. It’s not easy to find though. Tucked behind carré de l’arc de sant Ramon del call
