The hotel is on the top two floors of the palace. The courtyard on the ground floor is given over to restaurant Azul Histórico, a local favourite. The tables are set beneath trees that are wreathed in lights, making it a popular and atmospheric spot for dinners.

Our favourite rooms
Suites excepted, most rooms don’t have windows, but their vaulted ceilings, minimalist furnishings and clever design touches – such as the lattice-like partitions between bedroom and bathroom – ensure they still feel spacious. If you’re after a city view, lots of legroom and a bath tub, book the 70sq m Revolution Suite.
The concrete infinity pool is on the terracotta roof terrace. Bright yellow sunloungers, parasols and sofas run along one side, add a playful shot of colour. There’s a stylish poolside bar at one end, a palm-ringed hot tub at the other, and a small changing cabin off to the side.
Bring your boldest, brightest swimwear – it’ll create a photo-worthy contrast with the concrete pool.
Apart from the pool, all the common areas are wheelchair accessible. There are no specially adapted rooms, but rooms don’t have any stairs or obstacles to deal with.
Pets can stay for US$50 (plus tax) a night. There’s a maximum of two pets to a room, and they can’t be left alone. Dogs need to be kept on a lead in the common areas. See more pet-friendly hotels in Mexico City.
All ages are welcome, but the hotel’s best suited to adults. Under-18s aren’t allowed in the pool or the bar, and there aren’t any family rooms or facilities.
