“Very convenient, clean, friendly service”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

The service was fantastic. Mario and everyone else we came in contact with were extremely friendly and helpful. If you're looking for any private trips, he's the man to talk to! He arranged a car to take us to the pyramids on our way to the airport and it was an excellent experience. Great location with plenty of restaurants close by, very safe location to walk around. Very spacious, clean, quiet, modern rooms. What more could you ask for?

This is exactly what a boutique hotel should be, with high levels of service. Despite the appearance from the front (the old original house), the rooms are very new and modern, with plenty of space and a large desk and very large television screen. There is an underground parking garage. Security here is very, very good. The rooms are very quiet. The Internet service varies throughout the building, but in the event of issues, Starbucks offers free WiFi in the front of the building. Starbucks provides a nice outdoor area for sitting and enjoying coffee or breakfast, or a snack. The restaurant itself does not have a restaurant. There are perhaps a dozen restaurants ringing the project, within easy walking distance. There is an Oxxo convenience store about two short blocks to the east, and a 7-11 an equal distance to the west. The Condesa neighborhood is reasonably close to many commercial office districts along Reforma and Insurgentes, but not close enough to walk. If you want a slightly "out of the way" place to get a quiet night's sleep, and you want to be pampered by an attentive staff, this is a good choice.

Room Tip: The rooms that face east get the full, and we mean full, blast of the morning sun. There are backou...

Mario welcomed us like family to AR218. He is the Manager & an incredible host..... as all the booking sites are a little confusing re room layouts (of which he is fully aware) he really went out of his way to make sure we where happy with the room we booked & showed us a few others just to be sure; our happiness being his first priority. We ended up taking a different room that was more spacious & he looked after us amazingly. Now for the Suite! WOW beautifully appointed, lovely colour palates timber floors,marble bath room, good quality linens. Huge comfortable bed, light & airy with opening windows which we prefer. No loud traffic noise in the neighbourhood which is leafy & safe. New to the city we asked Mario for recommendations for vegetarian food & he printed out a map with directions for us. The best Vegan/Vegetarian Mexican food at Cate de mi Amor just a few blocks away. All the staff we met where gentle & really helpful. The beautiful room & Mario's warmth & Hospitality made our first day in Mexico City amazing. We will definitely be back & would recommend staying here over a hotel any day. It has a creative, cool vibe thats just really welcoming to be in. Loved it ! felt like we were at home... muchas gracias Mario ... super appreciative..

Room Tip: All the rooms we saw where beautiful, Ask Mario he is here to help.

AR218 is a new hotel (as in March 2014) in Condesa - one of the nicest, most relaxed neighbourhoods of Mexico City. The room was excellent - clean, spacious, excellent amenities, well-supplied kitchenette. Depending on if you like a chill, yellow-light atmosphere or a sunny room, take a room facing the inside or facing the road respectively. The staff were very helpful and respectful. The gym was great as was the rooftop [suggestion: they could have a mini-drinks-bar there in the evening]. Safe, clean, quiet and relaxed hotel in a wonderful location.

This is a great and safe place in one if the beautifulest neighborhoods of Mexico City with super-über-friendly and helpful staff. Interiors are very nice and new, very well set up in the kitchenette and the bed very comfortable. It was perfectly what we needed as a family with a one year old baby. Many good places and restaurants are just around the corner. Everything you need is there and if not, the wizard of concierge Mario makes it happen. We can only deeply recommend AR218 and will book it for sure the next time again.
