Located in the fashionable district of Polanco, Las Alcobas is one of Mexico City’s newest and trendiest boutique hotels, surrounded by designer shops, restaurants and nightclubs.
As the name Las Alcobas - the alcoves - suggests, this hotel strives to create a cosy 'home away from home' atmosphere for its guests. There are just 35 spacious rooms and suites which feature the latest state of the art technology and are decorated with a blend of modern Mexican design and some traditional brightly coloured regional artwork. The mini-spa bathrooms have huge rainforest showers and large whirlpool baths.
The small fitness room and spa, which offers a variety of treatments and massages, are a rarity in smaller hotels in Mexico City and the attached restaurant, La Dulce Patria, is undoubtedly one of the finest around, specialising in modern Mexican cuisine under the supervision of award-winning chef Martha Ortiz.
Why we love it
Celebs love the hotel restaurant, La Dulce Patria, and Bono was there celebrating his birthday when we were last in town.
