We spent two months at this property which, as the name implies, it is meant for long term stays. While we heard other guests complain about issues with internet or quality of service, we had no such problems. Housekeeping staff always kept the rooms immaculate and were very helpful. I'd venture to say that it is easier to get into... More

This hotel is located off of Lincoln Park, walkable to a lot of great restaurants. The taxis drivers always have a hard time finding it. The internet was disastrous, which is a deal breaker when you're traveling for business. The breakfast was uninspiring. For my next travel to DF I'll probably look elsewhere in the same area. But if you... More

We booked this hotel , last minute. We paid a fair price. We were lucky. I would not pay the prices posted on their board. Good average hotel. Most important, it is located in Polanco, very safe and posh neighborhood. The hotel is near excellent restaurants, cafes and shopping. No A/C in the room if you like to sleep in... More

Obelisk is conveniently located close to a nice park , many restaurants and a few small supermarkets . The building itself is not bad although it would benefit from better windows to reduce the noise inside . So prefer suites at the back , you will still hear some street noise but much less and the birds singing will wake... More

I will probably go there once more, since the location is perfect for me and the hotel is not bad. That's for sure. However, something odd with this hotel. The cleaners get to your room 2-3 times a day. Perhaps a better management of the cleaning services will save time. IMPORTANT: the cleaning is SUPERB and they are really nice... More

Good - hotel (or more like an apartment building) is in a good location - posh (and safe) neighborhood and relatively close to subway. Bad - the rooms have no air-conditioning whatsoever. Amazing for a place that gets humid and hot. Quite uncomfortable to sleep in. Our king bed was simply two smaller beds pushed together. No more to say.... More

I stayed a few nights at the Obelisk Suites in Polanco over the last few months. The hotel is in a great location, in the heart of Polanco and close to very nice restaurants and attractions. Excellent value for money ... but the staff in particularly unfriendly and not really willing to help, there is no restaurant in house and... More

These are corporate apartments / suites. They are perhaps a little dated in style, but unlike most places like this, it is not impersonal. The staff are helpful and friendly, the rooms are cleaner thoroughly every day and the breakfast is good (but no cooked food). They do a dinner in the evening which is far from haute cuisine but...

Obelisk Residential is located next to Lincoln Park in the Polanco area of Mexico City. You are in the heart of the restaurant, and upscale shopping and a half block from Reforma Ave. which takes you by bus to the zona rosa, museums, and the business district as well as the historic center. The suites are spacious, have a small... More

If you get a rate in any currency other than Mexican Peso, ask them to give you a rate in Pesos. At payment time, they only accept Pesos (including cash and creditcards) and they themselves decide what the exchange rate is, and (guess what) their rate is such that they make an extra 5-10% off of you. Also, the safe... More
