Dinsmoor is one of the most exclusive ballads in the City. Its sophisticated atmosphere makes the nightclub very well evaluated. The music can range from electronic to house music.

To finalize this guide with a golden key, the last tip is of a tourist point not to be missed: Chapultepec Palace.

The best hotels to stay in Mexico City

The first doubt that arises when we travel is where to stay, not only in a hotel but also the city. Here are some tips for those who want to go to Mexico City, but still have this doubt.

1. Polanco District

If you’re looking for hype and sophistication, this is the perfect neighborhood for you.

At the Polanco, you will find the best bars and ballads, such as 1 OAK, a branch of a NEW York night house. It is very possible to cross with celebrities and important people belonging to the Mexican High Society since the neighborhood is the residence of these figures.

But If you prefer a restaurant, or something more like shopping, there you also have the option of the best shops and the best places to eat in the city.

The best hotels in the region and I indicate are:

– Hotel St. Regis

A luxurious and comfortable place to stay. The St. Regis offers an indoor pool, three gourmet restaurants, and first-class rooms.

The Contemporary Hotel offers a 24-hour concierge service. Staying there you can enjoy the well-equipped gym and outdoor swimming pool and, after a busy day, who knows how to relax in the whirlpool or sauna.

For those looking for a more intimate environment, the Polanco also offers boutique hotels, which are super indicative, such as the Hotel Habita and the Dominion Polanco.

Another great option, in this case, the apartments have even a kitchen equipped with a microwave and a terrace that allows a breathtaking view.

3. Historical Center

The name already says on its own, in the center are located historical landmarks of the city, as the Metropolitan Cathedral, but it becomes away from the bars and the coolest ballads, which are in noble areas.

I Recommend the Hotel Downtown, located in the region, for those who have more explorer instinct and want to know the city center.

The Downtown is located in a 17TH-century palace that has been restored and transformed into one of the most elegant design hotels in the city. The accommodation, as elegant as the outdoor area, has high ceilings and tiled floors. The Hotel also has a bar with a terrace where you can see the city.

Another incredible option of a place to stay is the Hotel Marquis Reforma. The Hotel is located on Paseo de la Reforma Avenue, one of the main and most famous in Mexico City. At the Marquis, you have a luxurious setting and an incredible spa, plus have your comfortable accommodation overlooking the garden of Chapultepec Castle.

Top places to go in Mexico City

A handy guide to places to visit in the main Mexican city

There is a lot to do in Mexico City, which makes someone look confused when they are going to set up the itinerary of the trip days, so I leave here what my perfect day would be like, visiting the best places in the city.

•    Shower

It would start very early walking along the Reforma, the long and famous avenue downtown. La can be found in the charming castle of Chapultepec, one of the main tourist sights. The castle is immense, has a beautiful garden and provides a good view of the city.

Straight ahead you come across the Tamoyos Museum, which has a great coffee shop, and the Museum of Modern Art, which can not be missed. Nearby is also located the Hotel Downtown, quoted on my list of places to stay.

Another morning tour option is the Teotihuacan Temple of the Sun, which is housed in a complex of historic pyramids, one of which is the third largest in the world. The place is usually warmer than the rest of Mexico City so it’s important to always be well prepared.

•    Evening

The afternoon starts with a good lunch at the Loma Linda restaurant, a large steakhouse opposite the beautiful Soumaya Museum. The place is known for its contemporary architecture.

And speaking contemporaneously, next to the Soumaya is the Jumex, a museum of contemporary rotating art. The two museums, one next to the other, form one of the most beautiful blocks of Mexico City.

Now, if you are a fan of photography and architecture you can also do a tour of the National Cineteca and Torre Palmas 55. Both places are incredible.

And if what you love is history, besides doing the tours already mentioned, nothing better than a night in the historic center, where you can explore landmarks of the city such as the Frida Kahlo Museum, Zócalo, and the wonderful Opera House.

•    Night

The nightlife of the city is really very attractive, there are good ballads and bars for those who do not give up closing the script with a touch, but my night would end more calm, in some rooftop in Polanco or There Rome. Or probably in one of the restaurants already mentioned in the previous post, where I point out the best restaurants, in my opinion, of the city.

Visit the Hotel Condesa DF in Mexico City

The Hotel cited among the best hotels to stay in Mexico City undoubtedly deserves a space only him in the blog and in my heart.

I had the opportunity to stay at Condesa DF during my last trip to Mexico and I did not regret it. The Condesa is located in the neighborhood of Condesa, one of the most trendy neighborhoods of the city and very close to Polanco, the noble neighborhood of the place.
