Blending colonial 17th-century grandeur with a raw industrial edge, DOWNTOWN Mexico integrates local indigenous culture into its concept while celebrating its location in the Centro Histórico borough of Mexico City. Known as the “Palacio de los Condes de Miravalle”, it sits comfortably next to other colonial landmarks on the cobbled streets of this UNESCO World Heritage site. One of the oldest residences in the area that still maintains this particular Mexican viceregal style, the 17-room hotel blends elements of colonial style with local, indigenous culture. Characteristics such as ornate detailing around the windows of the facade and a stone-forge staircase with intricate handrails sit alongside grey volcanic rock walls and handmade cement tiles. DOWNTOWN Mexico's stripped-back, industrial elegance creates a bohemian chic environment, from its inspired rooms, to its lush garden patio and immense rooftop terrace where guests can get a glimpse over the historic buildings.

The 17 rooms and suites range from the 25-square-meter Colonial Queen to the 70-square-meter Revolution Suite. While each guestroom features a bathroom with a shower, the 50-square-meter Independence Suite and the Revolution Suite both boast a balcony and a bathtub, with the latter also playing host to a living room.
For Carlos Couturier and Moisés Micha, building hotels that reflect their surroundings is more than just a job—it’s a passion that drove these two Mexican entrepreneurs from citrus farming and investment banking to boutique hospitality. “Even if we’re successful at something, we don’t repeat it,” Couturier says. “We like this sense of passion and audacity.” Their Grupo Habita collection has grown to include very diverse properties, including 13 Design Hotels™ member hotels across Mexico and the U.S. Ambitious, fun-loving and well-traveled, the dynamic duo was awarded ‘Team of the Year 2011’ by FIZZZ Magazine.
