About

Located in the heart of Mexico City’s downtown, where pre-hispanic ruins intersect with the National Palace and the first cathedral in the Americas. Círculo Mexicano brings together Grupo Habita’s unique brand of hospitality with a selection of the Mexico’s leading figures from the worlds of food, fashion and design – offering informed travelers a unique and authentic experience of contemporary Mexican culture.

Ambrosi | Etchegaray’s architectural project reimagines the 19th century residential building as a modern marketplace on the ground floor with custom details that accentuate the original building’s splendour.

The sophisticated boutique hotel on the second and third floors is both essential and luxurious. Minimal room interiors place an emphasis on premium materials and privacy. The rooms are characterized by their contemplative skylit patios and Shaker-inspired interiors.

NEIGHBORHOOD

 

A giant flag declares that this is the center of the city. The center of the country. The center of the Aztec universe.

The “Centro Histórico” expands from the Zócalo – the largest plaza in Latin America, which is home the oldest and biggest cathedral in Mexico, The Metropolitan Cathedral built with ruins from and on top of the Aztec Templo Mayor. Adjacent to them is the center of political power – The National Palace famous for the September 15th celebrations and awe-inspiring Diego Rivera murals.

Unique in so many ways, “El Centro” has to be experienced firsthand to feel its electricity. This is the only place in the city where all cultures and classes overlap. The vibrant and bustling streets start to give you an idea of city’s twenty million-plus population. A trip to the top of the Torre Latinoamericana will help you understand the size of this ancient city and to catch a glimpse of the majestic volcanoes that surround it.

 

 

This neighborhood’s offerings are as diverse as its public. Uncountable stories have unfolded here, each leaving their trace as told by the myriad architectural styles, juxtaposed without prejudice. From the ancient and colonial to art deco and modernist there is a surprise at every turn downtown.

Locals are not lying when they say “you can find everything downtown”: The colorful markets and charismatic cantinas are almost countless. Recommended restaurants and notorious nightlife – too many to list. The multitude of museums and selection of shops guarantees that your first visit to “Centro Histórico” will not be your last.

Our concierge will be more than happy to help you plan your way around the city center and discover some of its best kept secrets.

MANUEL ÁLVAREZ BRAVO

"There at number 20 Calle de Guatemala, I saw many things that marked me forever... I am happy to have lived in those streets. There, everything was food for my camera, everything had an inherent social content; in life everything has social content." – Manuel Álvarez Bravo

Guatemala 20 is the exact address where Manuel Álvarez Bravo (1902 – 2002), Mexico’s most celebrated photographer, was born, spent his formative years, and shot the iconic “El ensueño” (The Day Dream) in 1931. In collaboration with the Manuel Álvarez Bravo Foundation, Grupo Habita selected a number of works by Manuel Álvarez Bravo which are exhibited throughout the Hotel rooms and public areas.
