"Boutique Hotel' No way"
This hotel pretends to be a boutique hotel, but it is not. The hotel feels like an IBIS with fancy Ikea furniture. I am a gold member, but still have not received any points for my stay. The roof top is also overrated. It was full of drunk teenagers.
"Good but time for a refresher "
Stayed at this hotel 10-12 years ago and though the hotel still retains its great design features there is some wear and even the hotel staff is less enthusiastic then they once were . Having said that it was pleasant and most convenient to the new art museums. The barber shop was a great feature . Also stayed at Condesa DF which is Hipper fresher and has more charm. So in summary still a great hotel for short stay in Polanco if convenience is the most important consideration
"Disappointing business travel "
I went for work so I didn't spend much time at the hotel. For me the most important attributes when I travel for business are that the bed is comfortable and that the hotel feels clean . I didn't get any of the two . The bed was one of the most uncomfortable beds I have ever slept in and I am constantly traveling for work. Also the hallway had a very weird smell and the hotel felt old. One great think I can say is that the staff was great and very nice. I forgot my toothpaste I then brought one very data and it was very late. I ate breakfast and it was ok but perfect for something quick before a busy day at work. I wouldn't r commend it there are a lot of hotels near the area that are much better and similar rates.
"TIME TO REFRESH THE HOTEL"
Me and my family have been going on and off to this hotel for the last 15 years, the location is great, the staff are nice, breakfast is really good as well as the pool area and roof top bar, however you really can notice now that the hotel needs URGENTLY a refurbishment, with so much competition with other small boutique hotels around the city. The gym area looks very outdated, the covers of the furniture in the pool area, showers etc. and last but not least it can very noisy! so 'double glazing' would n't be a bad thing to consider!
"Excellent laidback hotel in an excellent laidback neighbourhood"
My family and I (2 adults, 1 twelve year old) stayed for 2 nights at Hotel Habita Polanco on December 26 and 27. We booked several months in advance. Nearing arrival, I had a very positive, easy going e-mail correspondence with Pamela Benitez, the front desk agent at the hotel, who arranged an airport pick-up as we were coming in after dark. The very friendly driver was waiting for us as agreed, in one of Grupo Habita's fleet of BMWs. Check-in was easy, Pamela was there and made us feel instantly welcome. The room was minimal, spacious and had a good selection of magazines (the only other hotel we stayed at that did this was Chateau Marmont) and a very roomy balcony that wrapped around the side of the hotel in a huge L shape. It was peaceful and we didn't experience any disturbance from other rooms. We had comfortable beds, Malin + Goetz bathroom toiletries. The airport transfer driver recommended a low key, popular Mexican restaurant called El Farolito around the corner from the hotel which we had a great dinner at right after checking in (it's also next to a 24 hour supermarket for buying mineral water). The hotel is set in leafy, upmarket Polanco, which for first timers to Mexico City such as ourselves, made for a great introduction to the city. Hotel breakfasts are served in the design savvy lobby, a fresh very appealing buffet (break, cheese, fruit etc), with helpful staff on hand who were easygoing and never fussed over us. Having breakfast in the lobby meant you could watch people passing by outside, a nice way to get a feel for the city too. The pool on the roof was a great place to take a swim after a day out in the city and at night, the hotel project movies onto a neighbouring building - one evening, Anna Magnani was blown up to massive scale, visible from the street below. We took Ubers all over town from the hotel (very affordable) and also enjoyed wandering around Polanco finding yoga studios, healthy juice/ eating places, Mexican craft shops and more. If we return to Mexico City, we'd stay at Hotel Habita without any hesitation.
