Offering serenity in the otherwise bustling subwaypolis of Mexico City, Las Alcobas is truly a master class in minimalist hotel design worthy of the accolades it has received. We appreciate good design and with world leading interior design firm Yabu Pushelberg (Four Seasons, W Hotel) taking the helm, we were confident that Los Alcobas would be a fitting addition to the upscale neighborhood of Polanco. Add to that two of the cities most buzzed about restaurants (Barroco, Dulce Patrix) and you truly have a hotel that defines the term urban chic.
In the heart of the cultural and commercial hub of Polanco, Los Alcobas is located strategically on Avenida Presidente Masaryk, Latin America’s answer to Beverly Hill’s Rodeo Drive. This is the place to be seen in Mexico City. Designer boutiques, high-end restaurants, exclusive nightclubs – you will be rubbing shoulders with Mexico City’s social elite. Art and culture isn’t far behind with the Auditorio Nacional and Musuem of Modern Art all within walking distance.
Your room’s contemporary and minimalist design is a welcome change from the sprawling and crowded city streets. Think high-end materials: natural stones, exotic hardwoods and weaved leathers mixed with geometric prints, architectural furnishings and the bare minimum in statement décor pieces. Lay in your king size bed surrounded by the most luxurious goose down comforters and pillows. The spa-like bathrooms are lined in sleek marble with rain showers, whirlpool tubs and an assortment of handmade body soaps. The magnificent penthouse suite features a wraparound terrace for breath-taking views on the surrounding neighborhood.
