Special historic / traditional Mexican hotel in safe central area Mexico City?

by welys

Hi everyone

The subject probably sums it up! I'm trawling through the web looking at hotels in Mexico City, trying to find something that's special, historical / traditional Mexican, central and in a nice safe area, near restaurants and tourist interest spots....but I'm not having any luck so far.

Everything seems to be either far too expensive / chains (which we try to avoid) / very mordern or very business oriented.

Any tips would be gratefully received!

-Gran Hotel de la Ciudad de México, is downtown and its gorgeous, perhaps it's out of your budget, but its worth to check it out. www.granhotelciudaddemexico.com
-La Casona, is in the Roma area, is not far from downtown and its a very charming neiborghood with a lot of restaurants, galleries and nice cafes to spend the afternoon in. www.hotellacasona.com.mx, they have cultural packages that include the entrances to museums, ask for thems when you make your reservation.
-Condesa Df, its part of a a very nice minimalistic hotels chain, it's in Condesa area, very centric and its in an old building, really good food and excellent service. Perhaps is not what you where looking for, but it worths the look. www.condesadf.com
-Casa Vieja. in the Polanco Area, one of the nicest areas in the city, quite near of the city center and close to a lot of museums. It's an old house and a very intimate and nice place to stay. www.casavieja.com, 300USD the night, per room.

If you would like something cheaper, please let me know, anyways I will try to look for something. Have a great trip!!!

Thanks aislas, the budget isn't too tight as it is our honeymoon (though we are spending the first week in a very expensive resort so can't say money is no object either!)

I had looked at all of the hotels you mentioned, but reviews were mixed on Tripadvisor. I was particularly looking at La Casona and the reviews on Tripadvisor that happen to be negative don't seem to be TOO horrendous....

Can others vouch for La Casona? It does look nice.

Have booked La Casona so please only slate it if it's absolutely dreadful and we REALLY need to know! I'm hoping it will be nice as it will be the end of our honeymoon!

The Red Tree House - Mexico City

by gomexico

I've read some reviews of The Red Tree House (private home/ B&B style) in Colonia Condesa and it might serve your purposes very well.

http://www.theredtreehouse.com/

Centro Historico (where the Zocalo is located) probably isn't a good place to base yourself. It's a high-crime area and very quiet after 9 p.m. (with many darkened sstreets). Also, most of what there is to see/do in Mexico City is not located in that district. Visit there by day, stay elsewhere at night.

DIA 5

If you are interested in buying silver you can spend a tight day in Taxco, waking up earlier and returning the same day would be enough to make a visit of most of the central jewelries in town.

Try the churros

by Arial_27

You can buy churros in lots of places on the streets or in cafes and restaurants. They originated in Spain, but are very common in Latin America, and they're all over Mexico City. You can have chocolate, blackberry, caramel and other sauces filled into the inside of the churro too, its very good. :-)

Xochimilco

by darthmilmo

Who said Mexico City was a monstrous city? After an hour or so in the subway and through a Trolley bus (tren ligero), I arrived at Xochimilco. It took me some searching, but after a few tries I found a "collectivo" boat that charges 7 Pesos per person. It was somewhat empty, but they say it can carry up to 60 people when full. The collectivo dropped us off at the other end of Xochimilco.

Plaza Garibaldi

by filipdebont about around the Plaza

Plaza Garibaldi : this is the Mecca of the Mariachis.
If you are searching for feelings like sentiment, trumpet, violin, guitar, tequila, marimba, you can find it here.
Many, many Mariachi-groups are waiting here to play their songs; they can play anything from the saddest song till the must pleasant one. Till deep in the night these Mariachis play and sing every tear-jerker, every thing what you want.
You pay, they play, that is the way it goes. No dress code, may be just a sweater because at night it can be a bit chilly.
