Hotel Description

Puebla may be Mexico’s fourth-largest city, and to this day an industrial and commercial capital, but for most travelers the primary attraction is the city’s Spanish colonial core — its 16th- and 17th-century architecture is beautifully preserved, and there’s no place on earth with a higher concentration of buildings in the Mexican Baroque style. On the edge of the historical center, within walking distance of the central marketplace, the cathedral, and all the most significant sights, is Hotel Cartesiano, a stunning 78-room luxury boutique hotel that effortlessly marries rich architectural tradition with contemporary art and design.

It’s made from a pair of 18th-century mansions combined with a modern addition, which means you’ve got a bit of deciding to do. The rooms in the modern building are pure minimalist contemporary luxury, in warm neutrals and organic materials — they let the city’s history remain outside on the streets. Meanwhile the rooms and suites in Los Arcos and La Casa De Los Dos Patios contrast similarly modern-luxe design and furniture with the weathered stone and brick of the heritage structures; here there’s no escaping the centuries of colonial and post-colonial history.

Thanks to the contemporary addition there’s room for more than a few luxury-hotel bells and whistles, which you might not expect in an 18th-century mansion: a spa, a fitness center, and a rooftop infinity pool take the Cartesiano into high-end territory. There’s also a semi-casual café as well as an expansive fine-dining restaurant, Centena Cuatro, which promises a contemporary tour of Mexico’s deep culinary roots.
