I read through some of the reviews from other travelers and i believe that in many cases, the guests were caught off guard by the design and overall experience offered by the Distrito Capital Hotel.
If you are considering the Hotel for your next visit, please note that the hotel is meant to be a hip/trendy hotel without much of the amenities offered by the larger properties and resorts.
The Habita Group (famous for the Habita hotel in Polanco) designed this property to be very modern and minimalist. The property is quite small (it only occupies four floors of the tall and slender Distrito Capital tower) but because the hotel starts on the 25th floor, every room has a great view of Santa Fe and the Mexico City Skyline.
The regular (superior rooms) are equipped with queen beds, which are comfortable and clean. Every room has a modern “rain” shower and a bathtub which is quite enjoyable. The WC is detatched from the main bathroom which you would think is convenient, but I found it to be a bit tight and uncomfortable.
All rooms offer high ceilings (about 12-14 feet) and electric blackout screens which we found were very convenient. The A/C in the rooms was a bit basic (we couldn’t set the thermostat, so we had to turn it on and then off when it got too cold.)
The pool and restaurant are on the 5th floor, the design of all the common areas is great, from the time you come in, you feel like you are in another world..!
The hotel is very popular with young people who visit the bar and restaurant and parties are not uncommon, so if you are a light sleeper, make sure you use the earplugs that the hotel provides.
To sum up, if you are looking for an elegant, full service traditional hotel, Distrito Capital is not for you, but if you appreciate clean, modern and trendy spaces in a comfortable and efficient setting, I think you will enjoy the Distrito Capital for any personal or business travel to the Santa Fe Area of Mexico City.
