In the heart of Mexico City, the Habita design hotel opens onto the hustle and bustle of the Polanco quarter. This daringly designed luxury establishment plunges guests into a totally transparent universe. Sprung from the imagination of Mexican hoteliers Carlos Couturier and Moises Micha, the 32 rooms and 4 suites are minimalist in style with a contemporary design. The walls of the restaurant are covered with frescoes by artist Jan Hendrix which, like the rest of the hotel, celebrates the gentleness of Mexican life. From the 6th and top floor, the salon-bar possesses an exclusive view of the capital, throwing a veil of serenity over this 1950s building transformed into a glass cube.

Mexico City

Mexico City, the capital of Mexico was founded by the Spanish conquistadores in 1525 over the ruins of the ancient Aztec city of Tenochtitlan. Steeped in often dramatic history, it’s an important spot to visit for anyone interested in learning about the country’s past. The center of the city, classified as a UNESCO world heritage, offers visitors a pleasant stroll past a number of different historical buildings. For example, the Zocalo, the largest square in the city is extremely impressive. It is bordered on one side by the National Palace where the offices of the Mexican president are located, the Treasury and the National Archives, and on the other side by the Metropolitan Cathedral, a vestige of the colonial era. It’s here that the city’s major demonstrations take place.

Also well worth a visit are the pre-Hispanic Aztec ruins like the Templo Mayor. Finally, Mexico City will also delight art lovers who can discover, among other things, the home of the celebrated artist, Frida Khalo and the modern art museum. A visit to the city however, would not be complete without seeing the Guadalupe basilica, which every year receives millions of pilgrims from throughout the world who come to worship at the site where the Virgin Mary appeared to a shepherd in the 16th century.

Glass cocoon in the heart of the capital

It’s in the lively Polanco quarter that we find Hotel Habita, another creation of the hotel duo of Carlos Couturier and Moises Micha. Even at first glance the hotel is striking in appearance. This 1950s building was totally renovated and is now enveloped in a sheet of frosted glass which covers its entire façade, immediately setting the tone. Everything here is modern, and contemporary design reigns supreme.

On the ground floor, we find the hotel’s restaurant and the lobby where Enrique Olvera officiates. The hotel is also known for its modern and re-modernized gastronomic Mexican cuisine, and for the murals of contemporary artist, Jan Hendrix.

The Habita’s 32 rooms and 4 suites all follow the same concept; simplicity and elegance. They have large living spaces, lots of natural light and a pure décor. Depending on the room category, there’s either a king-sized or a queen-sized bed, a small table and a very simple sofa. There is nothing flashy or elaborate; just the essentials enhanced by finesse.

On the 6th floor, there’s a large terrace and a salon with a bar, comfortable armchairs and a huge long fireplace where guests can enjoy a moment of calm and, if they wish, try a few tapas. The hotel’s spa is on the top floor and is equipped with a sauna, a solarium and very effective cardio training material. There’s also a superb heated swimming pool and a terrace with a panoramic view of the city.
