Meet the Brick Hotel: Mexico City’s Hottest Boutique Stay

The Brick Hotel in Mexico City is one of our southern neighbor’s hottest boutique hotels. Located in Colonia Roma — often referred to as CDMX’s “hipster neighborhood” — The Brick Hotel is a 17-key outpost that melds past and present: a former locksmith shop & bordello, the building retains its original ceramic tiles & bricks while incorporating contemporary art, furniture, and finishes throughout the space. Take it from us, the art collection is top-notch and one of our favorites in the boutique hotel world.

The rooms are perfectly decorated — an olive & brown color palette plus sleek furniture are the aesthetic. We love the two-level Rooftop Suite: the first floor, with its main room housing a queen-size bed, desk, and gorgeous bathroom; the second floor flaunts a French-style overhead bathtub and private terrace, where guests can lounge plus people-watch out at pedestrians passing the hotel.

The hotel’s restaurant and bar scene suffuse taste and trendiness: Foliage-heavy, open-floor-planned restaurant Cerrajería serves modern Mexican cuisine & unique cocktails under the direction of illustrious executive chef, Armando Acosta; Terraza 95 serves libations amidst an atmospheric rooftop; and bottom-floor Embury Speakeasy is exceedingly debonair.

Those looking to get pampered will love Hela Spa, with its medley of nourishing treatments: facials, body wraps, and massages are the name of the game here.

Walking around the hotel presents ripe opportunities for exploration. A short stroll away is Calle Colima, which, in our opinion, is the coolest street in Colonia Roma: art galleries, posh restaurants, and boutiques selling Mexican-designed accouterments are the scene
