As part of Grupo Habita, a chain of Mexican boutique hotels that include New York City’s Hotel Americano and the beautiful Downtown Mexico Hotel, Condesa DF is a comfortable, unique, and beautiful hotel, serving as an original window to one of Mexico City’s most interesting areas.
The artsy, bohemian neighborhood of Condesa is situated southwest from historic downtown Mexico City and the shift in style is evident as your travel from one area to another. Enjoy the pleasant change of pace as you stroll through the tree-lined streets and unwind at Condesa DF’s breezy rooftop.
Hotel Condesa DF, also a member of Design Hotels™, displays a perfect mixture of neoclassic architecture and pragmatic,cozy interior design. Surrounded by art galleries, cafes, restaurants, and vibrant Mexican nightlife, Condesa DF blends style and culture beautifully, creating a faultless atmosphere for the modern traveler.
The building, a French 1928 neoclassic construction, was remodeled by Mexican architect Javier Sánchez, whose work is characterized by a successful integration of simplicity and comfort in design. Hotel Condesa DF is a perfect example of his work. He transformed the open central patio, installing white geometric shutters to create a profoundly interesting visual game. Sánchez also remodeled and constructed numerous terraces to take advantage of the beautiful street views outside the hotel.
Parisian designer India Mahdavi is an integral part of the interior decoration of Condesa DF. Her input and talent resulted in a harmonic mixture of classic decoration and dashes of modern design throughout the hotel.
Wooden furniture, stone tiles and aquamarine details fill the space and provide a sense of coziness to its functional bedrooms as well as the always simple but well-equipped halls and dinning rooms.
The small hotel has forty comfortable bedrooms, some of which include wooden terraces that overlook an old street full of trees. Condesa DF also offers an interesting menu with its Jap-Mexican fusion restaurant (located at the central patio), run by renowned Japanese chef Keisuke Harada.
Condesa DF’s main feature is its fantastic roof terrace, an ideal place for dinner and drinks that offers a unique view of Mexico City. Amongst treetops and a perfect view of Parque España, you can see Castillo de Chapultepec (an impressive XVIII century castle) while the sun sets among the buildings of Mexico City.
