First things first, you have to know where are the best locations and areas in Mexico City and why:

Historic Distric

From my point of view, this is one of the best areas to book your hotel if you’re looking to tour the city. The Historic District has all types of hotels for any kind of traveler. It’s also an area that has a little bit of everything, museums, monuments, views, Mexican restaurants, rooftops, etc.

The area is so touristic that some hotels will actually offer city tours, bike rentals and other services that can be of great interest for visitors.

For firs-timers in Mexico City, this is their best bet, even if you are traveling on a budget there are great hostels you can stay at.

Polanco is an elegant, snobby and very attractive area for those looking for luxury hotels, restaurants and boutiques. This is the most famous area in the city, and an interesting fact is that many young locals dream of living in this area.

Because this is an area focused on high living and business, the touristic attractions provided are very few. However, it’s a great option if you’re looking for the best places to eat at or planning to see a show in the National Auditorium. It’s also a great place to stay at if you’re traveling for business.

Santa Fe

There are various hotels, and although there aren’t many touristic attractions, you might want to stay here for business or visiting a family member. You will find excellency in restaurants and brand stores.

Paseo de la Reforma is one of the major Avenues in Mexico City and the hotels located in this area are top-notch. For this reason we recommend you stay here during your visit.

Besides, some of the best hotel in the city are located here.
