Our fifth stay, and it never disappoints. So much smart style and clever design and thought throughout, especially in the wonderful rooms. Brilliant location in the fabulous area of Polanco where you could not feel any safer and relaxed. Excellent all round. Don’t bother looking to stay anywhere else.

Our stay at The Alest Hotel in Mexico City was extraordinary.. it is in a superb location in Polanco, and the hotel itself is absolutely stunning… we discovered it on Condé Nast and it exceeded our expectations during our first trip to Mexico City.|Its exquisite design, tremendous service, and boutique setting made this a highlight for our first trip to Mexico City. It is a gem and definitely one that will be on our return travels. |Highly recommended for a special experience.
