About the neighbourhood
We are located in Mexico City's historic center, between Bellas Artes (the opera house) and the Zocalo (the main square with the National Palace and the cathedral). Declared a World Heritage Site in 1991, the 'Centro' (as the locals call it) is chockfull of fascinating sites, Aztec and colonial treasures, busy shopping streets, colorful markets, and plenty of restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Here you feel the throbbing pulse of this great megalopolis - and all just a few steps away from where you are staying.
Getting around
The Allende subway station is around the corner from our building. The double-decker hop-on hop-off turibus also stops there, and so do lots of other busses going to other parts of Mexico City. Take a taxi or the metro to attractions farther afield, such as the Anthropology Museum, Coyoacan with its small-village atmosphere or the “floating” gardens of Xochimilco. And hire a car or hop on a bus for day trips to the famous Teotihuacan pyramids, other archaeological sites like Tula or Xochicalco, or the Museo Nacional del Virreinato in Tepotzotlan (Mexico’s finest collection of colonial art and artifacts).
