Blending colonial 17th century grandeur with a raw industrial edge, Downtown is a design hotel integrating local indigenous culture into its concept while celebrating its location in the historic downtown of Mexico City
. The hotel -known as the “Palacio de los Condes de Miravalle” sits comfortably next to other colonial landmarks on the cobbled streets of this UNESCO World Heritage site. Characteristics such as ornate detailing around the windows of the facade and a stone-forge staircase with intricate handrails sit alongside grey volcanic rock walls and handmade cement tiles.
The 17 rooms and suites possess a stripped-back, bohemian-chic elegance, ranging from the simple and unadorned, decorated with little more than grey walls and tiled floors, to the stylish, with light timber detailing, exposed concrete walls and vaulted high brick ceilings. Street-side rooms have balconies to take in the views, while the others look over the lush and perfectly manicured patio.
An immense terrace covers the entire rooftop with lap pool, sun loungers and a bar.
