ACCOMMODATIONS: HOTEL CARLOTA
In the heart of the historic and eclectic Cuauhtemoc neighborhood, an exciting renovated building exemplifies the culture, design, art and modernity of Mexico City. Each element that makes up this new hotel is the result of a new history within the design in Mexico. A cluster of concepts, unique pieces and multisensory experiences, is a result of the participation of a group of experts and creative Mexicans. Behind the concept is Ignacio Cadena, one of the most important designers of the current Mexico while the architectural proposal comes from the hand of the young and multi-awarded Javier Sanchez. The hotel offers only 36 rooms, each featuring unique pieces that represent the new face of Mexican art, where we can find works by The Original Contractors, Christian Camacho Reynoso, Tomas Diaz Cedeño, Luis Nava, Omar Barquet and Ricardo Rendón.
