Hotel Review: Sofitel Mexico City Reforma
Die capital of Mexico is one of the biggest metropolis worldwide and offers a huge variety for visitors. Starting from many hundred years old ruins of Aztec pyramids, art museums to colonial buildings from the 19. century and modern sky scrapers. One of these new super buildings is the Sofitel Mexico City Reforma.
LOCATION & TRANSFER
Located in the beautiful and modern neighborhood Reforma, the Sofitel Mexico City Reforma has the ideal location in the city. The historical old town with many sights and the famous Parc Chapultepec are located within walking distance and the area of the city is famous for its many restaurants and shopping possibilities.
The Concept of the Sofitel Mexico City Reforma
With the Sofitel Mexico City Reforma the French hotel chain Sofitel built a modern and stylish hotel which newly opened up in 2019 and already counts as the new hotspot hotel in Mexico City.
My first impression of the building is already fascinating: It combines a renewed colonial house from the 19. Century with the recently built 40 storage hotel.
Arriving to the Sofitel we got instantly welcomed and in times of COVID-19 every guest’s temperature will be checked plus it’s mandatory to always disinfect your hands if you enter the hotel and to wear a mask in the public areas. This keeps all guests and also the staff safe!
Pool & Spa
One of my highlights of the Sofitel is the huge indoor saltwater pool! Located on the 38th floor it offers an insane view over the skyline of Mexico City. Due to the pandemic guests have to reserve a time slot in advance to have the pool just for themselves. Many relaxing beds, the service right at the pool and massaging water streams make it to the ideal place to unwind.
The Spa with L’Occitane is located on the 39th floor and is an amazing place to recover after a strenuous day and to enjoy the incredible view. No matter if during a pampering treatment or in the saunas (one for woman & men each) which are complimentary.
During our stay at the Sofitel Mexico City Reforma we stayed in one of the amazing Opera Suites which left us speechless! But even the Luxury Rooms of the hotel are offering incredible views:
The room with a cozy Sofitel bed in the center will impress you with its amazing view the very second you set foot through the door. A sliding door leads to the spacious and bright bathroom – it even has a bathtub from which you can enjoy the view over the city too!
Our 147 sqm huge suite is comparable to a fully equipped apartment. Behind the very well sorted bar and the office is the open living room with a big sofa located. A block in the center of the room has a TV on two sides plus a fire place at the third side. Behind it you find the big dining table right at the window facade which is ideal for meetings too. That’s where we started every day with an excellent in room breakfast and the iconic view over the city. The window faced begins at the living room and continues along the whole suite for an incomparable 270 degree view over the capital. Thanks to the windows the bedroom feels even bigger and open than it is already is – but of course it can be completely darken anytime. Right behind it is the walk in closet and the spacious marble bathroom. Beside two sinks and a rain shower with window, a free standing bathtub with the size of a jacuzzi is the highlight of the room. After a strenuous day it’s been a welcoming relaxation to sip a glass of wine while enjoying a bubble bath and watching Mexico City at night!
Breakfast will usually be served at the Balta Restaurant with a rich buffet. But the Balta is also open for lunch and dinner with a Mexican & Mediterranean fusion cuisine. Due to COVID-19 regulations the restaurant is temporarily closed but guests can still order in room service and the breakfast will be á la carte & delivered to the room.
CITYZEN ROOFTOP KITCHEN
The rooftop bar of the Sofitel Mexico City quickly developed to a new hotspot in the city with unparalleled views over some of the most popular sites like Chapultepec Castle, the Angel of Independence and much more. It’s also open for non-hotel guests which would like to enjoy a cocktail with a view or the French and Mexican cuisine.
In my opinion Sofitel Mexico City Reforma is THE address for travelers in the Mexican capital – no matter if you’re traveling on a business trip or for sightseeing like us! The French elegant Sofitel Style continues throughout the whole hotel and together with the finest culinary highlights and the courteous service we could relax and enjoy our stay! We couldn’t have imagined a better accommodation for our first journey to Mexico City.
