Condesa DF, Mexico City

We love to be living on the cusp of innovative design and when you stay at Condesa DF, that’s exactly what you get. Slick, contemporary comfort, and colourful yet tasteful charm, Condesa DF is the result of a unique collaboration between Parisian designer India Mahdavi, South Beach hotelier Jonathan Moor and Mexican architect Javier Sánchez de Sánchez Higuera. They knocked their brains together and came up with a hotel that is Black Tomato in every way; fun, sleek and different, just the way we like it.


The city that beats Mexico’s heart and puts the swing in its hips, Mexico City is at the centre of everything Mexican. In the city’s Condesa district, just moments from the Bosque de Chapultepec – the city centre park with landscaped gardens, colonial castles and superb views over Mexico City’s sprawling urban jungle – you’ll find Condesa DF on a quiet, picturesque corner. Set in a typical stone building with intricate Juliette balconies, the traditional façade only makes the contemporary interiors that much more astonishing.

Your room

Clean white walls are balanced with splashes of colour and clever, funky furniture for a unique Condesa DF look. Think crazy-shaped bathroom sinks, modern art-inspired furniture, and spacious design to create what is the pinnacle of bohemian chic, poised perfectly alongside traditional features like the arched windows and teak floors.

Why we love it

The humble minibar has been redesigned into a lavish refrigerated treat box, the rooftop bar has exquisite views of the lush España Park and the magical Chapultepec Castle and gardens, and below the restaurant, you’ll find a cinema as well as a dancefloor and cocktail bars which are a social mecca at weekends. You’ll love the iPod in your room which comes ready-stocked with mood-lifting tunes – yet another example of the hotel’s attention to detail and sharp service.
