In the heart of the Condesa neighborhood, which is in the middle of the city surrounded by gorgeous parks, restaurants and bars. This is the place to be.
An eclectic mix from Latin to Jazz and Bossa Nova. The music is cued to fit the time and mood of the day. Each room has an iPod with a pre-mixed playlist.
