8/10 Very good

We stumbled upon this property a couple of years ago, we had a number of hours to kill in cdmx and visited the restaurant downstairs. We returned to stay in the hotel at the recommendation of friends. The property is quite breathtakingly beautiful with exquisite design features. The rooms are spacious and decadent with open plan elements and clean finishes. Rooms are sparsely decorated and dim lighting is quite beautiful….until you need to find anything in your luggage or get ready in front of the bathroom mirror _ which is impossible in such dark surroundings! Which leads me to the only other negatives - The room lacked tea or coffee making facilities and if you need ice in your room, you’ll need to call reception. Good luck in trying to call reception as there is no direction on what to dial on the phone, luckily it didn’t take much time to figure that one out. There’s no room service menu in the room either. Only one comfortable chair in the room, and the noise… there are the most amazing acoustic blocking doors installed to block out the street noise and the music from the rooftop bar, but the noise of the a/c in the room is really loud - even on low. The rooftop pool is beautiful and the facilities up there are lovely but the pool is freezing cold and totally unusable! Nevertheless, I’ll give this hotel a 4.5 out of 5

4/10 Fair

Impressive old building. Helpful staff. But the rooms are dark, impractical and depressing. The air conditioning does not work well. The only windows open into the common passage so there is no privacy. Lighting in the rooms is too little. The toilets are made later into the room with no doors. Only a curtain. They did however permit a switch to their sister hotel after a day which was much nicer. Overall very disappointing.
