Downtown

Built in the 17th century, Downtown Hotel is an historic, former palace providing 17 beautiful suites - some with attractive wrought-iron balconies overlooking the street, others facing the courtyard. Further charming features include a bar and swimming pool on the rooftop with city views and all within just two blocks of Mexico City’s central square, El Zocalo.

The red volcanic rock of the walls, the wooden beams, vaulted ceilings and handmade clay floor tiles lend a dramatic sense of history to this delightful residence. High above the city bustle, relax by the pool on Downtown Hotel’s rooftop and savour a drink from the bar.

A short walk from Downtown Hotel and you are in El Zocalo Square bordered by the cathedral, Palacio Nacional, and the ruins of the Aztec Tenochtitlan, including the Templo Mayor. Well worth a visit is The Mercado de Xochimilco, as is the Museo Castillo de Chapultepec overlooking the city.
