Mexico City Hotels: From Airbnb To Hidden Gems

By Bianca Lambert


Mexico has been making headlines due to reports of violent crimes targeting American tourists. The state department has even gone as far as to issue a level two travel warning, but we don’t want that to keep you from exploring all Mexico City has to offer. With a little research, you can scout out a neighborhood that feels like the perfect fit for you.





The 11-room hotel is located in the upper-class neighborhood of Polanco. Busue is surrounded by theaters, art museums, and some of the best dining experiences Mexico City has to offer. If you find yourself not wanting to leave your beautiful designed room for a bite, just place an order with any of the eateries nearby and the staff will pick up the food and bring it to your room.


Nima Local House Hotel


This La Roma District property is not only known as one of Mexico City’s safest areas it is just a short walk away from bars, restaurants, coffee shops, and boutique shops. With just four rooms, you’ll need to make your reservations early, but the personalized service and nightly turndown with cookies on your pillow will make the extra planning worth it!

El Patio 77


Don’t let this size of this 8-room eco-friendly B&B inspired hotel fool you. This small but mighty hotel prides itself on its uniquely designed rooms inspired a different state in Mexico and its dedication to guest service. If you’re looking to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city, guests reviews note that the San Rafael neighborhood is both “quiet” and “friendly.”



Hilton Mexico City Reforma


If you’re not into boutique hotels or Airbnb and like to go with a brand you know (and use points you’ve racked up), the amenities and location of this stunning hotel won’t leave you disappointed. After you’re done exploring the Palace of Fine Arts and Zócalo, be sure to take the time to have a dip in the rooftop lap pool or relax in the spa jacuzzi.


The St. Regis Mexico City


Located Paseo de la Reforma Boulevard in the heart of Mexico City, you’ll be steps away from the cities most well-known tourist attractions. But, that isn’t the only reason to book a room at this five-star hotel. The St. Regis has three on-site restaurants, an indoor swimming pool, and butler service.






This two-bedroom, one bath Airbnb equipped with a full kitchen and outdoor dining area feels like a home away from home. Nestled on Uruguay Street, its close to all of the hustle of Mexico City and even has a panoramic view from the balcony.




If you’re looking forward to touring the Frida Kahlo Museum located in the neighborhood of Coyoacán,  this is two bedroom, one bath home is your place! The hosts even go the extra mile by stocking the home with fresh fruit, coconut water, and beer.




This Roma Norte home has over three hundred five-star reviews and is ideal for the traveler looking to get to know the city. With its stunning rooftop terrace view, you won’t want to miss booking this place.
