Our favourite rooms
The citywide views from Terrace Suite 03.02 make it our top choice, but the gorgeous stone-clad wet rooms and huge shower roses in the Balcony and Patio rooms make both tempting options too. If you can, go for a room with outside space – the serene and leafy setting is a rarity in Mexico City, it’d be a shame to waste it.
The shallow rooftop pool is set in a light well lined with deep-green mosaic tile and fed from a fountain overhead. Curved bench seating makes it the perfect place to sit and cool off after a spell in the spa.
Don’t bother with an iPod; the one in your room brims with chirpy chill-out tracks. Bring a notebook, though, for the ‘to download when I get home’ list you’ll inevitably find yourself making.
Condesa DF lives for the weekend. Mexico City’s movers, shakers and taste-makers flock to its bar and dance floor on Friday and Saturday nights to enjoy the hotel’s cocktail wizardry and unflagging party spirit.
Condesa DF’s feet are firmly in the couples’ camp.
