Mexico City Hotels

Mexico City is an electrifying, sprawling hub of culture, nightlife, and heritage. Sprinkled with museums and art galleries - that showcase a vast range of ancient artifacts and modern art masterpieces - this sun-kissed urban jungle is a paradise for culture-fiends. There’s also an abundance of theater, concerts, and gigs, perfect for lovers of eclectic nightlife. Meanwhile, shoppers and bargain hunters will be spoiled for choice with Mexico City’s endless spread of malls, markets, and boutiques.

Things to see

With so much to do and see in Mexico City, it’s difficult to know where to start - but these key city sights should be top of your list. Begin at the Zocalo, Mexico City’s historic central square. This paved area - echoing with the cacophony of exciting city sounds - puts you in walking distance of the Metropolitan Cathedral, a mammoth masterpiece of several architectural styles. Built over 250 years from 1573, the Cathedral showcases stellar Baroque, Renaissance, and Neo-Classical designs. After, head to the adjacent Palacio de Bellas Artes, a fine art museum set in a gold-domed Art Deco palace. Inside, see inspiring murals from Mexico’s most infamous artists, and contemporary exhibits. This is also a center for Mexico City’s cultural events, so be sure to check its calendar. Then, inject some ancient history into your afternoon at the National Anthropology Museum, where you can see old-world Aztec relics, like the magical Stone of the Sun.

Hotels in Mexico City

Mexico City’s medley of hotels provide a mix of accommodation suited to all tastes and budgets. The city explorer looking for laid-back no-frills comfort should stay in one of the 2-star budget hotels in Mexico City, which provide simple ensuite rooms, free full breakfasts, and free WiFi. For a more refined atmosphere, check out a 3-star hotel, which boast large rooms, in-house restaurants, and stylish bar-lounges. Those after pure paradise should stay at one of the 4-star hotels in Mexico City. Here, you’ll enjoy full service spas, excellent concierge-style service, and even rooftop pools.

Where to stay

Mexico City seems to stretch on and on into the horizon - so if you’re unsure where to stay, these diverse central districts are the most popular. The Centro Historico, Mexico City’s historic and cultural hub, is ideal for those who want to be within easy walking access of all the top sights. Bohemian types, meanwhile, should stay in the counter-cultural southern district of Coyoacan, where small art galleries, off-beat bars, and quirky markets are in abundance. If you want a more affluent area, with glitzy clubs, high-rise hotels, and plenty of high-end shopping opportunities, stay in the northern district of Polanco.

How to get to Mexico City

Gently glide through Mexico’s clear azure skies in to Benito Juarez International Airport - also known as Mexico City Airport - based just 9 kilometers east of the center. This airport is one of the key gateways into Mexico, serving a huge amount of flights from destinations across the globe, like New York and Dallas/Fort Worth in the US, and London and Amsterdam in Europe. From the airport, either take a licensed taxi to your hotel, or for the cheaper option, hop on the Metro subway to the center. Once there, the easy availability of taxis, combined with the Metro and bus networks make exploring the city a breeze.
