I stayed here over New Years and I absolutely loved the place. The rooms are super cool, the patio has the best vibe and I even kept the bottle of water. I took pictures of every single detail as everything was just so cool. I wish I oculd have stayed here longer! there are so many amazing places to stay... More

I was only able to book the standard category due to budget constraints for myself and my family (3 rooms in total) and I must confess I was a bit worried that the rooms would be too plain and boring. They were not. The photos online really don't do it any justice - the hotel is just beautiful, tastefully decorated... More

This is a lovely hotel, but perhaps takes its "design cred" a little too seriously. Minimalist interiors and sort of odd window/shutters that make the room either dark or open to the courtyard. Bed is comfy and extra wide, but my 6-foot-tall husband's feet hung off the end. These are minor things. The breakfast was fantastic and staff very friendly.... More

Hotel Azul is a well designed/decorated boutique hotel that is centrally located and is a an easy walk to the historical town center. Our room (#11) was not huge but was comfortable and there are many thoughtful amenities (free minibar/snacks, cute bathroom toiletries, welcome tequila, WIFI, etc.), the free breakfast was delicious, and the public areas of the hotel (restaurant,...

We had a great stay at the Hotel Azul. The property is beautiful and our room, the Villalobos Suite, was nicely furnished and very spacious. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful with booking restaurant reservations, cooking classes and a driver to take us to some places outside the city. The hotel is located on a quiet street but just... More

Hotel Azul is a pretty boutique hotel 10 minutes walk from the Zocolo. It's on a quiet street. The gardens are pretty. The rooms are a decent size with the expected amenities. What is lacking is a bathroom door! There is a curtain separating the toilet and bedroom so you'd need to share with someone you know pretty well! It... More

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel. We had 2 adults and 2 children in room 11. The environment was tranquil and beautiful. We loved that the rooms were quiet and the only noise was from people talking in the courtyard. Everything was clean and organized. The beds were comfortable but we wished that our kids could sleep separately. It... More

We love staying at this beautiful boutique hotel. Designed in collaboration with several mexican artists, the hotel is full of perfect little spots. The service is great and the staff is always willing to help. Breakfast is simply delicious, beds are super comfortable and the location is great.
