- Style Floral Mex
- Setting Posing by the park
A calm and cool hideaway in manic Mexico City, Condesa DF hotel is a park-side pad with an art deco edge. The polished and playful interiors have a charmingly split personality, with bold floral prints alongside bright-white walls, flowing curtains and acrylic furniture. At treetop height, the terrace bar is where hip locals gather for cocktails.

In the know
- Our favourite rooms The citywide views from Terrace Suite 03.02 make it our top choice, but the gorgeous stone-clad wet rooms and huge shower roses in the Balcony and Patio rooms make both tempting options too. If you can, go for a room with outside space – the serene and leafy setting is a rarity in Mexico City, it’d be a shame to waste it.
- Packing tips Don’t bother with an iPod; the one in your room brims with chirpy chill-out tracks. Bring a notebook, though, for the ‘to download when I get home’ list you’ll inevitably find yourself making.
- Also Condesa DF lives for the weekend. Mexico City’s movers, shakers and taste-makers flock to its bar and dance floor on Friday and Saturday nights to enjoy the hotel’s cocktail wizardry and unflagging party spirit.
