Condesa Haus sits within a Porfiriato-era building typical of La Condesa and neighboring Roma. Some of the bed and breakfast’s five rooms connect to private patio or terrace spaces, and details like wrought-iron bed frames, Spanish tile tubs and stained glass windows inject some extra character. Make sure you don’t miss breakfast, with a variety of traditional Mexican dishes like chilaquiles and huevos rancheros to kick start your day.

Regal is the word of the day at this quirky hotel. Classified as a historical monument, the 1943 Neocolonial-Californian mansion is home to seven rooms, all unique in their design. The characterful bed and breakfast is conveniently located by both metro and bus stops, and chef Daniela is ready to whip up whatever you need to get going for the day, whether that’s a plate of fresh fruit or organic coffee from Chiapas.

Hotel Casa Nuevo Leon

The retro-modern design at Hotel Casa Nuevo Leon is easy on the eye, with a clean palette of greys and creams and light wood furnishings running throughout. Upgrade to a suite with a hot tub, and enjoy the sounds of the birds chirping away from Parque México as you take a soak. There is no restaurant, but the hotel is on a tree-lined street filled with stores, and a number of award-winning restaurants are nearby. A stop at El Moro for churros and hot chocolate is a must.

Each of Ignacia’s five suites follows its own color palette: the Negra room is filled with striking black details like floor-to-ceiling marble, while the Rosa room is lined with plush, pink velvet, and so on. This impeccably designed bed and breakfast serves up hot meals like sopes, tamales and eggs your-way every morning, and is close to other Roma must-sees like Jardín Ramón López Velarde and the house where Roma, the Alfonso Cuarón film based in the neighborhood, was filmed. But this high-design hotel feels like a movie set in itself.

    The darling of Mexico City’s boutique, luxury hotel scene, La Valise was once a 1920s townhouse that has been converted into a tiny but perfectly formed guesthouse. With only three rooms, you need to plan ahead if you fancy staying here; however, if you do get reservations, the stay is exceptional, and room service comes courtesy of nearby restaurant Rosetta. For true decadence, book the penthouse suite. Here, you will find a king-sized rolling bed that glides out onto your private terrace so you can sleep beneath the stars.
