The Best Hotels in the Colonia Roma District

Roma is a fantastically trendy neighborhood, but it's also mostly residential. That means that while there are tons of great places to eat, finding a place to rest your head is a slightly trickier proposition. Luckily, we've rounded up some of the best hotels in the neighborhood to make things easier for you.

Best Overall Hotel: Stanza Hotel

Stanza Hotel is nice enough to look sharp, but not so nice that it feels too expensive or foreboding. It's a well-done, midrange hotel with 130 comfortable rooms. People return trip after trip to stay here for the hotel's wonderful service and attentive staff, it superior quality at reasonable prices, and its location. The location is a big deal, too. The hotel sits right at the confluence of Roma Norte, Roma Sur, and La Condesa. All in all, you're paying a very reasonable price to be right in the middle of the neighborhood, and they'll take good care of you while you're there.

Best Luxury Hotel: Hotel Villa Condesa

Hotel Villa Condesa is a retreat of calm minimalism amidst the bustle of Mexico City. This boutique hotel has 15 rooms that fall into four different tiers, from smaller spaces for solo travelers to a 4-person executive suite. The hotel's whole philosophy is built around the elegance of simplicity, and the design and warm coziness of the rooms certainly reflect that. Visitors routinely use words like "oasis" to describe the place, and the service goes above and beyond.

Best Budget Hotel: Bed & Breakfast Mexico

Bed & Breakfast Mexico is a very affordable option. While the room may come across more like a hotel or hostel than a traditional B&B, you do definitely get both a bed and breakfast out of the deal. Visitors can choose from a double room with a shared or single bath, or a twin room. Wi-Fi is free as is the shuttle from the airport, provided you give them enough notice. The service is usually singled out as one of the guest house's strong suites.

Best Family-Friendly Hotel: Hippodrome Hotel

Hippodrome Hotel is a gorgeously sleek, modern hotel located in one of the neighborhood's beautiful art deco buildings. The feeling here is calm and relaxed—subdued, even. Muted colors and clean lines are the building's signature, and each of its 16 rooms is known for its "unpretentious luxury." The hotel is conveniently located next to Parque Mexico, and near just about anything else you might care to see. In lieu of a minibar, specialized butlers are on hand to prepare cocktails, teas, and snacks. Rounding out the list of accommodations is access to a nearby gym, Netflix and cable availability, and the a farm-to-table hotel restaurant, Aida.

Best Boutique Hotel: La Valise

La Valise is several things all at once. It's the brainchild of French designer Emmanuel Picault, a 1920s French-style townhouse, a high-end boutique shop, as well as a three-room hotel. This is definitely an intentional, experiential sort of hotel stay. The hotel portion describes itself as "designed for lovers of details and savoir vivre." Rooms include El Patio, a blend of Mexican and European design, La Luna, a more Mexican-inspired space with light whites and pinks contrasting the black leather shelves and dark fixtures, and La Terraza, a Chic by Accident room with a bed that rolls outside so you can sleep under the stars. Room service is provided in the form of a partnership with Rosetta, the highly-respected, chef-owned restaurant just down the street.
