What I liked:

Gorgeous building, great design as per the Habita Group, but I would not stay here again and wouldn't recommend it. Most of the problems are beyond the hotel's to manage - there is a casino across the street that has extremely loud private parties till 3:30am, and the restaurant in the courtyard plays loud bass-heavy music till late as well. There is no way to escape it, so sleep is not easy.

What the hotel could do better:

Staff were mostly not terribly motivated, however there were a couple of exceptions - a very helpful bellboy and security guard. Guests are pretty much on their own.

Hotel should work out a better collaboration with the restaurant regarding noise.......

Hotel Description

The Habita group, over the past decade or so, has amassed an impressive collection of boutique hotels, an empire that spans more or less all of Mexico, from the cities to the countryside to the beaches of Playa del Carmen. And even as their holdings expand to include their first foreign property, New York’s Hotel Americano, the brand-new Downtown Mexico is proof that they aren’t letting their imperial ambitions loosen their hold on the capital’s boutique-hotel business.

Architecturally it’s a bit of a departure, occupying a brick-fronted 17th-century palace a short walk from the Plaza de la Constitución, as central a location as a Mexico City hotel could ask for. Once inside, though, that signature Habita architectural flair returns with a vengeance: the original high ceilings remain intact, among other charmingly weathered period details, but the prevailing atmosphere is that of a very clean, very contemporary modern boutique style. Simple forms highlight rich textures, from the dark tiled floors to the raw wood furnishings to the screens, almost Moorish in style, that set the bathrooms apart from the bedrooms.

Where the Habita group goes, a certain stylish crowd is sure to follow, and that’ll be the case before long at Down Town’s restaurant and its roof terrace lounge. For boutique hotel enthusiasts, it’s another Mexico City neighborhood added to the recommended itinerary.

How to get there:

Downtown Mexico is located 11km from the Mexico City International Airport. Transfers can be arranged for US$250 for up to 2 guests in a private car or US$350 for 4-6 guests in a private van. Please contact CustomerService@TabletHotels.com for assistance with airport transfers.
