What To Know
Rooms here are no-fuss, but the real draw is the rooftop pool and deck (which can get busy) and prime location
Like its nearby sister hotel, Condesa DF, the hotel gets booked up quickly for fashion weeks and art fairs
The hotel lobby can be busy during breakfast; we recommend ordering the chef’s huevos rancheros

Simple, no-frills digs in Mexico City's Polanco neighborhood, with a restaurant, a spa, and a popular rooftop pool and lounge
Designed by architect Enrique Norten, Hotel Habita offers minimalist yet stylish digs painted in muted gray and white tones, with wood elements and low-slung beds dressed in crisp white linens and topped with soft gray throws. The guestrooms feature flat-screen TVs and private terraces (in most), while the bathrooms are stocked with high-end Malin + Goetz products. In the lobby restaurant, executive chef Fernando Maya prepares a knockout huevos rancheros for breakfast, and for lunch and dinner a selection of sandwiches and as well as main dishes such as pulled drunken duck with tomato sauce and seared tuna with zucchini, cucumber and ginger-soy dressing. But the real draw here is the hotel's rooftop terrace, which features a sunken swimming pool and a bar/lounge area complete with a firepit and unbeatable views of Mexico City.
In the Area
Chapultepec Park supplies the traffic-clogged city with much-needed green space and a raft of outdoor activities. Row a boat on the lake, visit the zoo, jog under the pine and jacaranda trees, or visit some of the city's finest museums, including the Museo Tamayo (for installation art and modern sculpture) and the Anthropology Museum (for an overwhelming collection of ancient Aztec, Mayan and Zapotec artifacts). A young, late night crowd gravitates to trendy Ragga, while older locals love Joy Room.
