The brainchild of three Spanish friends, the Room Mate brand aims to revolutionize the pricey urban hotel scene, offering reasonably priced rooms in primo neighborhoods that are light on unnecessary extras and heavy on of-the-moment, streamlined style. The Mexico City outpost gets the formula spot-on: The 62 guestrooms are sleek and uncluttered, decorated in stark white with pops of primary color, and feature spacious light-filled modern bathrooms, some with deep soaking tubs. Designer/architect Tomás Alía was inspired by Aztec motifs for some of the geometric forms, although the overarching theme is linear modernity. Services are as minimal (as you’d expect with such low rates) – there’s no restaurant – although the casual cafe off the lobby is a welcoming spot decked out Pop Art-inspired colors.
In the Area
While Mexico City can seem daunting for first-timers, the city is surprisingly walkable and easy to navigate, especially if you’re staying in one of the fashionable downtown districts like Roma, Condesa or Polanco. The so-called Zona Rosa is located close to all these desirable ‘hoods, along with the vast and leafy Chapultepec Park, D.F.’s answer to New York’s Central Park. This wonderful green space offers a tranquil escape from the bustle of the city while being at its heart: Don’t miss a visit to Chapultepec Castle, a former imperial palace that today houses the National History Museum. Another must-see: the Museo Rufino Tamayo, a modernist masterpiece dedicated to one of Mexico’s most significant 20th century artists. Stop for lunch in Roma, a bohemian neighborhood home to intellectuals, artists and fashion designers. Perennial hotspot Contramar offers a see-and-be-seen scene par excellence, along with some of the best ceviches in town.
How to Get There
We stayed for four nights and we loved it. The room was big and comfty and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Especially Edgar. He was always happy and helpful. It was a pleasure. The hotel is right on Amberes where all the clubs are located. We got a room on the 11th floor so the noise was not an issue. All in all we would definitely stay there again
My partner and I ended up booking this hotel because our Air BnB didn't go as planned.
The room rate was very reasonable and we wanted a good hotel experience and that's what we got.
Check in staff were very helpful. Rooms are really nice and tidy with a modern feel.
It is located on a very busy nightlife street so you can hear some noise in the evening, but the windows are double glazed and if you have the aircon on we didn't hear much.
Location is great. For the price and feel, highly recommend.
Thanks Room Mate!
