Blending colonial 17th-century grandeur with a raw industrial edge, DOWNTOWN Mexico integrates local indigenous culture into its concept while celebrating its location in the Centro Histórico borough of Mexico City. Known as the “Palacio de los Condes de Miravalle”, it sits comfortably next to other colonial landmarks on the cobbled streets of this UNESCO World Heritage site. One of the oldest residences in the area that still maintains this particular Mexican viceregal style, the 17-room hotel blends elements of colonial style with local, indigenous culture. 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. DOWNTOWN Mexico's stripped-back, industrial elegance creates a bohemian chic environment, from its inspired rooms, to its lush garden patio and immense rooftop terrace where guests can get a glimpse over the historic buildings.

Located 2 blocks from the Zócalo Square, this elegant design hotel is set in a restored 17th-century palace. It offers an outdoor pool and roof terrace with wonderful views over Mexico City.

Downtown has an ideal setting in the historic city centre, a 5-minute walk from the Metropolitan Cathedral and the Mexican Government Palace. Zócalo Metro Station is 400 metres away.

Rooms at Downtown have high ceilings and traditional tiled floors. Each stylish room includes free WiFi and a flat-screen TV, as well as a minibar and a safe.

Downtown offers an à la carte restaurant and a bar with a terrace, overlooking the city. You can also relax in the hotel’s courtyard garden.

Staff at the 24-hour reception are happy to arrange excursions, airport transfers and car hire. Free bicycle rental is offered. Valet parking service available with an extra charge.
