"One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor."
- George Carlin
Mexico is the perfect place for gringos tired of winter to soak up some vitamin D and soak in some tequila. Places like Cancun, Mazatlan and Cabo are …
... you can find in most Spanish-speaking countries, and a sandwich. I relaxed for a bit and then headed to the hotel in the light rain.
Sa*************ed back to the Bosque de Chapultepec, where the anthropology museum is, to check out the castle-turned museum. On the way I stopped at Sanborns (a different location than the one Amy and I went to) for a delicious, typical breakfast of chilaquiles. The walk to the castle was wet as it was raining a ...
... we walked around the city and visited the palace of fine arts. It was only partly open though. So we could only see the Murals that they had on display. Diego Rivera's Mural they had was pretty awesome though. After that we visited a local city market nd bought some fruit and Chels got some Jenga. The city is so big. 2 days left then onto the yucatan peninsula. Ill try to add pictures when i can but i am incredibly lazy.
... day. Inside of the building Diego Rivera's murals are hanging throughout the walls. Diego Rivera's murals are so popular, especially in Mexico, because all of his murals tell Mexico's history in a unique way. The murals had so much detail and they really were extraordinary to look at. Most of his murals took several years for him to make. We then loaded back onto the bus and drove about an hour to Xochimilco. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Condesa DF Mexico City
First, let me say that I would return without much hesitation, and we definitely enjoyed our stay, but there are definitely things to consider and there were some flaws.
Yes, the hotel is beautifully designed and attracts a stylish Mexico City crowd. But be forewarned - the goal of the Condesa is to attract a party atmosphere. Providing comfort for the hotel guests is far down the list.
To stay at this hotel is quite an experience. This concept goes beyond a hotel experience; it's like staying in a friend's house. Staff is super friendly and effective with your needs. Rooms may be a little small but they certainly provide you with all the basics and even many not so necessary but great amenities, like and ipod charged with super cool music for you to just chill in your room, or a cinema at the hotel basement. The terrace is a great place to enjoy at day and night. Food is just excellent. DO NOT MISS the guacamole, it is as good as gets. Try also the sushi bar at night, you will found great Mezcal and a large Sake list.
We had a really great stay at the Condesa! Located close to the beautiful Parque Espana, the area (Condesa) and this nicely designed hotel feels (and looks) more than Paris than Mexico city.
We heartily enjoyed 4 days at the Condesa DF in Mexico City in Oct 2005. I really cannot recommend it enough! It was very hip and stylish and in a wonderful and safe location. The shades when drawn kept the light and sound out quite effectively. We hastily made changes in our initial reservations due to Hurricane Wilma and the hotel staff bent over backwards to help us locate and confirmed for us hotels in 4 other cities nearby. Additionaly, suggestions were offered and mapped out for us for restaurants, musuems and other sightseeing activities in Mexico City, too. The restaurant within in the hotel was an absolute unexpected gem. The food was the best we had during our 10 days in Mexico at any price and, if a may offer a suggestion, try their Horchata Martini! All in all a truly wonderful stay!
Great Service, Beautiful Place
I stayed for four days at the Condesa DF. On arrival they had better rooms than the one I had reserved and they upgraded my room at no cost. The place is beautifully designed with gusto, modern but not impersonal. I payed aprox 130 euros per night + tax. The rooms are really comfortable with plenty of light and bathrooms with amazing showers. It is located in a quite street but right in the middle of Condesa (one of the nicest barrios in Mexico DF). Certainly the best top hotel in Mexico city.
Great hotel in a wonderful location
My husband and I stayed at the Condessa for three nights and it far exceeded our expectations. The rooms are small, but very well designed and do not feel claustrophobic. Comfy bed and linens. The location itself is great - we were within walking distance of the Metro and several restaurants in Condessa, around Parqué México. We walked around late at night and had no problems. The restaurant at the Condessa is not bad either, though gets very noisy at night.
Stayed for a long weekend. Hotel was right out of South Beach. White on white rooms with plasma tv, Ipod, and DVD. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood with lots of restaurants and clubs. However, hotel had nice restaurant and 3 different party atmospheres at night - basement disco, courtyard bar/lounge and roof-top bar/lounge. As a women I felt very safe walking around the 'hood and nearby parks (which have ancient BIG trees). Staff very friendly and helpful. They allow dogs which is a plus as we always try to take our little Yorkie with us - he had a good time with all of the attention from the staff and other guests. I don't speak Spanish but it was not a problem as the staff all spoke English. Only issue was on Saturday night when we returned from clubbing we ordered room service - after waiting over 1 1/2 hours we called to cancel the order. This also resulted in our prior breakfast order being cancelled. No big deal, just the only problem to report. After we called about the breakfast order, it was brought up less than 15 minutes later. No pool but a nice sauna/steam/mini pool with waterfall on the roof deck. Note that even though this is Mexico, temps in summer are mild (60's day, 50's night) to bring a jacket.
