Hotel Maxintimo, a contemporary and budget-friendly hotel in Mexico City. The hotel has been newly remodeled with updated decor and amenities. As soon as I walked into the lobby, I felt welcomed by the restaurant and its cozy atmosphere. Room service was available for food and drinks, which was convenient. Unfortunately, the hotel does not offer laundry services, but I found a self-serve or wash-and-fold option just around the corner.
The hotel is located in a safe, quiet, and blue-collar neighborhood. I enjoyed walking around and exploring the local shops, restaurants, and bars. Across the street, there was a lady selling salads for only twenty pesos at her fruit stand. Birrieria Central 46, a friendly restaurant on the corner, had a great menu with vegetarian options. There was an Oxxo, pharmacy, sushi place, and subway line (Doctores) all on the same block or only one away. If I needed to go farther, everything was an easy Uber ride away.
Edger, the manager, was amazing. He spoke English fluently, had a great sense of humor, and was incredibly helpful. The cleaning staff was also exceptional.
My room was very spacious and quiet, with a big and comfortable king-sized bed, clean sheets, and blankets. The view of the city was amazing. I appreciated that the room had total blackout shades, though I couldn’t open the windows. Unfortunately, there was no AC or heater, but the hotel provided a fan and space heater upon request. The room had a great space to work, with fast WiFi, however there was only a stool and no chair. The lighting was excellent.
The sink was located separately from the shower and toilet, right as I walked into the room. The hotel provided big and good-quality towels, and the shower had good water pressure, although it had a flat surface, so the water never fully drained.
