Why we like it
- A boutique style hotel
- Housed in the historic Tehuacan building built in 1931, one of the best examples of Mexican art deco
- Located in the hip La Condesa neighbourhood
- A mix of original art deco and contemporary style
- Aida restaurant, with its discreet side door offers inspired Mexican cuisine
For one of the best views, stay in a room on the top floor.
I would just like to add that the help / service we received from Melissa Hookway was oustanding. It was very personal and I was made to felt like a valued client.

Hippodrome has a private almost secret atmosphere about it with its dark mauve walls and low lighting the hotel feels like a private club that you would find in New York or London. The hotel’s exact location is hidden away in a quiet street in Mexico Park, but still a great location to explore the city. Hippodrome offers you discreet service in a contemporary styled hotel that still captures its past. Stay in rooms or suites all have been carefully designed to create a comfortable retreat from the city with all expected modern amenities. We particularly like the signature suite with two bedrooms it is perfect for a family or friends travelling together complete with a double terrace overlooking La Condesa. The hotel offers a butler service, the ultimate mini bar, your butler can create a variety of drinks and snacks for a time that is convenient for you – their signature cocktail is not to be missed.
