"Nice boutique hotel in quiet neighborhood"
Good, smaller hotel if you are looking for something off the business path.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great hotel in perfect location"
If you like to be in very interesting part of Mexico City Condesa and Roma are full of young artistic people it is less crowded than Polanco and has more hip restaurants. Nice architecture, lots of trees, galleries, sculptures, people walking dogs, little coffee places and in 1/2h walk to museums. Karla in reception is a great concierge.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best service in Mexico"
Everything is amazing and the service is incredible. The beds though are quite firm in case you like soft mattresses.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for business and space"
Big rooms, nice staff, good location, all very new. They could do better sheets, soap and shampoo. The gym is quite small. No breakfast but Peltre on the corner was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great accommodations in a classic neighborhood"
Great, stylish apartment-like accommodations in a modern tower addition to a classic home that now houses a Strbucks. Service was a bit erratic, so I would not recommend it for visitors looking for tourist support. The Condessa neighborhood is residential and, after having spent a week on the Zocalo, we enjoyed being in a quieter place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great boutique hotel"
Really beautiful boutique hotel in Condesa. The Starbucks on site was an added bonus--bc it adds lovely lounge and outdoor patio area. The staff was attentive and on the ball. A wonderful experience. Better than Condesa DF and also more affordable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely space but keep your expectations low."
Its a great hotel but we had issues with the service. There were no extra toilet rolls in the bathroom and the reception has a few bell boys who don't speak English. Its a new hotel. The apartment was lovely, but you need make sure you close the curtains otherwise your privacy is exposed as one side of our rooms was just glass and people from outside […] can easily view your room. It wasn't intuitive as there were see through curtains and there was another set of curtains that had to manually pulled down. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel in la Condesa"
Unfortunately the last guest who used the room I got, left a bunch of clothing in a lundry basket. The rest of the room was neat but that unconvinient detail reflects low customer care from house keeping. I told this to the front desk and they even apologize for it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful Boutique Hotel in Condesa"
Checked in after a long flight and the hotel staff was super attentive and pleasant. They led me up to my room, explained all the amenities at the property, and answered any questions that I had. The restrooms are equipped with Dove skin care and the shower is one of the best I've been in. Rooms are clean, spacious, and quiet. The Starbucks on the property […] is also a big plus.

"Great design and space. Bad temperature control."
Great design and space. Bad temperature control.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is located in La Condesa, a nice up and coming area of Mexico City. It is a mix of boutique hotel with executive suites, as there is no bar, no restaurant and little infrastructure. The gym is nice and the rooms are cute and spacious with a kitchenette and a small living room. The staff was very nice. Definitely not worth $330, it is more […] of a $180 hotel.

"Location Location Location"
During a ver short stay I had to find a place between far away destinations in Mexico City (in terms of driving time of course, because distance is another matter in this city). Perfect place to stay in the humane dimension if Colonia La CondesaGenuine Expedia guest review
Great place if you don't mind not having room service or a bar in sight. The rooms are modern and big, with a kitchenette with all the essentials. All in all this is an amazing place for the right place and location. I'll definitely stay here next time I'm in Mexico City.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great room, great neighborhood, great service"

"Beautiful boutique hotel in a great location"
A wonderful oasis in a great neighborhood! The staff is amazingly helpful! I have never been welcomed so warmly! The interior is very tasteful. Every room has a small kitchen which is fab! The mattresses though could be a little softer :-) I would definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel any time! Thank you for a great stay!Genuine Expedia guest review
I ended up here because everything else was booked in Mexico City, what a surprise, this is a gem of a boutique hotel, beautiful modern design, friendly staff, well kept, clean and comfortable in one of Mexico City's coolest hippest quarter with art galleries and restaurants that have patios on the sidewalks.Truly a great place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Favorite hotel in Mexico City"
The stay was wonderful from the very first moment. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are immaculate and very comfortable. Very nice neighborhood with plenty of restaurants close by. Also convenient to the major roadways to get to business meetings.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Lindo lugar en la Condesa"
Mas que un Hotel, es como un condominio, pues no tiene restaurant ni bar. Las Habitaciones estan Nuevas, muy modernas, muy elegantes. Me encanto! el ediicio esta miuy bonito, decorado con mu buen gusto.Muy moderno.El Aire acondicionado no lo pude hacer funcionar y estuvo poquito frio. Marque a la recepcion y me dijeron que habia una cobija extra en […] el closet. Definitivamente si me volviera a quedar ahi, solo que es como para viajes mas extensos, ya que la habitacion que habia disponible tenia cocineta complete.Todo hay cerca, bares, restaurants y es una area muy segura de la Cd. de Mexico. Pero es un Condo Hotel. no tiene todos los servicios que proporciona un hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel demasiado caro para lo que es"
Demasiado caro para lo que es las camas son muy incomodas y chicasGenuine Expedia guest review
"Buen Hotel es bueno, sí pienzo regresar"
El hotel es lindo, está bien ubicado, tiene buen gusto arquitectónico y es moderno,aunque se escucha mucho el ruido de otras habitaciones y del pasillo. El servicio es bueno, aunque les falta personal que hable inglés, tardaron un poco en cerrar la cuenta,en el baño falta donde poner el jabón, y no cambiaron la toalla mojada.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Buen hotel, un poco incomodo"
El personal es muy atento. Tanto en la recepcion como el gerente muy amables. El problema es que la habitacion es demasiado pequeña y nada comoda. El lavamanos es mas pequeño que el de un avion. Tal vez para una persona sola en viaje de negocios sea mas comodo.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Servicio de primera"
En general todo muy bien, personal muy atento y el hotel esta genial, definitivamente lo recomiendo.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excelente hotel con pésimos colchones"
El hotel es muy bonito con un muy buen diseño en estilo minimalista. El gimnasio muy bien equipado y un Starbucks junto al lobby. Aunque está equipado con cocineta y accesorios, son innecesarios con la gran cantidad de restaurantes, bares y cafés alrededor. A pesar de estar a unos pasos del corazón de la Condesa las habitaciones son extremadamente silenciosas. […] Todo es magnífico con una gran excepción: los colchones, las almohadas y las sábanas son muy incómodos. Otro problema es que aunque la TV es una pantalla grande, la calidad de la imágen y la oferta de canales es muy pobre. Es una lástima no poder dormir bien en una habitación tan bonita.

"Un lujito en la Roma"
Si buscas ese ambiente relajado y hippie de Roma-condesa pero con un lujo y diseño chic para hospedarte, este hotel es la opción. Te hacen sentir como en tu casa, desde la atención, trato y confianza, así como las comodidades del cuarto con buenos climas de refrigeración, pantalla grande de tv y hasta los productos de baño que no parecen muestras, ya […] que manejan presentaciones a lo que tu compras en un supermercado. Es una ventaja y comodidad tener un Starbucks en la planta principal con terraza para fumar. Sin embargo a media cuadra está un café local de mucha mejor calidad y productos más naturales. Mi único problema fue la cama, ya que no es muy cómoda, es de esos colchones duros o firmes. Si les sugiero que los remplacen ya que es clave en un hotel de dicha categoría y precio alto. Mi vuelo salía tarde, y no hubo problema por quedarme más tiempo en mi habitación fuera del horario de check out. El gimnasio con muy buen equipo, toallas, agua y variedad. En general fue una buena estancia, salvo lo del colchón. Y me dejaron un chocolate kiss por la noche en mi buró y las luces tenues prendidas. Bien detalle :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"La Condesa is a fantastic part of Mexico City to stay ."
Location is great- Quiet -close to everything and let's you see life in Mexico City as you would live there. If you like coffee you have one popular chain place right in the hotel with great place to seat outside if you prefer a local hip place you turn left and half a block is small charming one or you can make one in your kitchen in your pretty nice suite. Hotel has a nice modern design, clean and very comfortable. Karla Lopez hotel concierge was fantastic always ready to help and gives good advices what to see which way to go and where to go to eat or drink.

A very friendly and warm hotel set in a good, albeit upmarket location. Rooms were made to a high spec, bed was comfortable and bathroom was excellent. I felt truly safe and secure. I was on a business trip so had little time to explore but when I did I found the area safe for a foreigner, with lots of choice in terms of bars, bakery, cafes and restaurants. The built-in Starbucks is great place to chill and unwind whilst taking in a spot of people watching. My Spanish is not so strong and to be fair English is not widely spoken in the City. However, I found Karla Lopez (who seemed to work exceedingly long hours doing all kinds of jobs from reception work to general management, extremely helpful, kind and considerate. She made sure when I left the hotel for work she pre-ordered me a taxi, she offered good advice on nearby attractions (Anthropology Museum is nearby, approx 30 min walk) and is a credit and asset to AR218. Without her assistance my 3 night stay would not have been so enjoyable and pleasant. If you want something different to the luxury traditional 5* hotels in Polanco, which can be a little anodyne, then this is a good alternative. Wifi was free, strong and reliable.
"My favorite boutique hotel of all"
My husband has stayed here several times since it opened, but this was my first visit to AR218 (whose name is a play on the address: #218 Alfonso Reyes St.) This is a luxury boutique hotel, which feels like home. The staff are all super helpful and friendly. The modern decor is restful, but not boring. Having a kitchenette meant we didn't have to go out for evey meal, but area restaurants are great. The rooftop garden was my favorite spot. Dont miss AR218!
"Best choice in Mexico City"
12/21/14 Dupont2Traveler Memphis
We read all the reviews and did allot of research concerning location and quality before selecting Suites AR 218. They really delivered and exceeded our expectations. Believe it or not not many locals speak English and getting an English menu in a Resturant is close to impossible. That being said Mario was always close by to help guide us and make reccomendations. Our room was very small especially the bathroom however the shower itself was spacious so it was still very comfortable. The rooms have small kitchens which is a great use of space. We have traveled all over Mexico and didn't know what to expect in Mexico City. Choosing this hotel gave us the right location as a base camp to visit all the locations and shopping areas. I highly reccomend visiting San Angel for one full day. It is a small historic town that promotes local artists displaying their work on the weekends. We bought a few small paintings and visited several of the museums. The locals throughout Mexico City greeted us while passing on the street with a smile. I was impressed at seeing the younger locals more concerned with health (running, biking, etc) than smoking as in most large cities. We loved this city and will certainly return.
"Very convenient, clean, friendly service"
04/29/14 Jackiezb Orlando, Florida
The service was fantastic. Mario and everyone else we came in contact with were extremely friendly and helpful. If you're looking for any private trips, he's the man to talk to! He arranged a car to take us to the pyramids on our way to the airport and it was an excellent experience. Great location with plenty of restaurants close by, very safe location to walk around. Very spacious, clean, quiet, modern rooms. What more could you ask for?
"Very good service!"
04/19/14 og84 Westwood Los Angeles County, California
This is exactly what a boutique hotel should be, with high levels of service. Despite the appearance from the front (the old original house), the rooms are very new and modern, with plenty of space and a large desk and very large television screen. There is an underground parking garage. Security here is very, very good. The rooms are very quiet. The Internet service varies throughout the building, but in the event of issues, Starbucks offers free WiFi in the front of the building. Starbucks provides a nice outdoor area for sitting and enjoying coffee or breakfast, or a snack. The restaurant itself does not have a restaurant. There are perhaps a dozen restaurants ringing the project, within easy walking distance. There is an Oxxo convenience store about two short blocks to the east, and a 7-11 an equal distance to the west. The Condesa neighborhood is reasonably close to many commercial office districts along Reforma and Insurgentes, but not close enough to walk. If you want a slightly "out of the way" place to get a quiet night's sleep, and you want to be pampered by an attentive staff, this is a good choice.
"We Loved AR218"
04/08/14 River y Sali S Mexico City, Mexico
Mario welcomed us like family to AR218. He is the Manager & an incredible host..... as all the booking sites are a little confusing re room layouts (of which he is fully aware) he really went out of his way to make sure we where happy with the room we booked & showed us a few others just to be sure; our happiness being his first priority. We ended up taking a different room that was more spacious & he looked after us amazingly. Now for the Suite! WOW beautifully appointed, lovely colour palates timber floors,marble bath room, good quality linens. Huge comfortable bed, light & airy with opening windows which we prefer. No loud traffic noise in the neighbourhood which is leafy & safe. New to the city we asked Mario for recommendations for vegetarian food & he printed out a map with directions for us. The best Vegan/Vegetarian Mexican food at Cate de mi Amor just a few blocks away. All the staff we met where gentle & really helpful. The beautiful room & Mario's warmth & Hospitality made our first day in Mexico City amazing. We will definitely be back & would recommend staying here over a hotel any day. It has a creative, cool vibe thats just really welcoming to be in. Loved it ! felt like we were at home... muchas gracias Mario ... super appreciative..

AR218 is a new hotel (as in March 2014) in Condesa - one of the nicest, most relaxed neighbourhoods of Mexico City. The room was excellent - clean, spacious, excellent amenities, well-supplied kitchenette. Depending on if you like a chill, yellow-light atmosphere or a sunny room, take a room facing the inside or facing the road respectively. The staff were very helpful and respectful. The gym was great as was the rooftop [suggestion: they could have a mini-drinks-bar there in the evening]. Safe, clean, quiet and relaxed hotel in a wonderful location.
03/09/14 Tolga D Zurich, Switzerland
This is a great and safe place in one if the beautifulest neighborhoods of Mexico City with super-über-friendly and helpful staff. Interiors are very nice and new, very well set up in the kitchenette and the bed very comfortable. It was perfectly what we needed as a family with a one year old baby. Many good places and restaurants are just around the corner. Everything you need is there and if not, the wizard of concierge Mario makes it happen. We can only deeply recommend AR218 and will book it for sure the next time again.
"Hospitalidad, servicio y ubicación excelentes"
02/28/15 Chicharin Montevideo, Uruguay
10 días hospedado, en donde nunca me sentí en un hotel. Me sentí en casa. Rodeado del mejor servicio gracias a la amabilidad de todo su personal. Un concepto cálido, diferente para viajeros que odian la frialdad de los grandes hoteles pero sin dejar la calidad de las instalaciones de un 5 estrellas. Definitivamente se ha convertido en mi opción para "volver a casa".
