Where to Stay in Mexico City?
Finding a cheap hotel in Mexico City is a relatively easy task, with good value hotels in most parts of the city. Head to Mexico City’s Centro Histórico if you’re keen on colonial architecture and cultural delights. There are plenty of affordable hotels around the Zócalo, one of the largest squares in the world that sits at the heart of the Centro Histórico. Alternatively, head south to the colourful quarter of Coyoacán, once home to Mexico’s most famous and exuberant couple, artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera.
If you’re looking for something more high-end, there are many 4- and 5-star hotels around the chic neighborhood of Polanco, with fine dining and elegant shops on your doorstep. If you’re keen on green space, opt for a hotel close to the extensive park land of Chapultepec, or stay in the bohemian districts of Condesa or La Roma; areas thriving with independent boutiques and plazas replete with open-air cafés. The perfect people-watching spot.
Mexico City Accommodation Options
Hotels in Mexico City range from cosy guesthouses to large luxury hotels. Whether you’re looking for cheap or chic, Mexico City has a hotel to suit any taste or budget.
In addition to large 5-star chains including Four Seasons, Marriott, W and Hilton, there are lots of quirky boutique hotels dotted around popular tourist areas, including the Centro Histórico. Alternatively, there are plenty of no-frills guesthouses to choose from, especially in the lively Zona Rosa area.
The peak travel periods of Semana Santa (Easter Week) and Christmas/New Year are hectic and heavily booked throughout Mexico City so try to book in advance for these periods. November’s ‘Day of the Dead’ celebrations and Independence Day in September also tend to attract a lot of tourists so cheap hotel deals may be harder to find.
