Finally we touched ground in one of the major cities in the world, namely Mexico City. Having had an somewhat uncomfortable trip there we were delighted to arrive with such hospitality at the W-hotel.
Despite the fact that our room wasn’t ready yet we were offered a drink for the wait and enjoyed the comfy and impressive furniture of the lobby.
After our coffee and a walk in the park just across the street we were welcomed in our Suite on the 25th level. A view on the city from one of the highest points in Polanco with the mountains right behind it over which the sun sets just perfectly every night. You can even enjoy the last rays of sun with some champagne from the kingsize bed on the 1st level of the suite before heading out for dinner in one of the many exquisite restaurants nearby.
One which we did was Agua y Sal. Just a 4min walk from the hotel and you arrive at the place where they serve the best ceviche in Mexico City. We ordered a dish with a series of ceviche’s (shrimp, tuna, fish of the day and one other) and were blown away by the variety of dishes, each one with its own unique flavour. Definitely something we can recommend. Another great one was La Buena Barra where you are literally treated like kings and also the food was quite impressive.
We enjoyed the facilities of the W Hotel which include fitness, sauna, hot tub, steam cabin and also a special Mexican sauna for which you can make a reservation in case you want a special Mayan treatment.
Breakfast is always one of my favourite moments and at the W Hotel they make sure you start your day just the way it should. A smile on everybody’s face and a fresh and inviting array of food to make your selection from. Oh and let me tell you the yogurt with the honey Granola and fruits here is the best and exactly how I like to start my day with a warm cup of smoking coffee.
Now, if you’re ever in Mexico City and want a nice neighbourhood with an amazing view, you know where to go!
