                    Accommodation

                    Best Western Majestic (or similar two-star)

                    The Mexican president is your neighbor when you stay at the Best Western Majestic, which sits right next to the Zocalo – the main plaza in Mexico City. That makes exploring the capital a breeze, with the giant Catedral Metropolitana, Templo Mayor and Torre Latinoamericana all within an easy walk. Comfortable rooms, a restaurant serving Mexican dishes, and a bar with epic views makes returning easy too.  

                    Hotel Madero (or similar four-star)

                    History and comfort combine at Hotel Madero, a stylish boutique in the heart of Querétaro. Original features have been kept throughout this mid-18th-century building, while the rooms are more modern in style. Tired from all that exploring? Hit up the spa for a massage or facial treatment.

                    El Mesón de los Poetas (or similar four-star)

                    Housed in an 18th-century mansion, El Mesón de los Poetas has 41 rooms within walking distance of the most important stops in the city, including the Diego Rivera museum and the Alhóndiga de Granaditas. There’s an on-site art gallery for more cultural diversions and a restaurant for a hearty breakfast, while rooms are traditional and comfortable.
