Inspiré du style Shaker
Opened in 2020, the Círculo Mexicano hotel is located in downtown Mexico City.
Owned by Grupo Habita, the 19th century building, which previously housed private residences, was transformed by architects Jorge Ambrosi and Gabriela Etchegaray of the Ambrosi Etchegaray Studio. Historic elements have been preserved such as the zigzag staircase that connects every floor of the hotel. However, the studio has adopted a more contemporary and minimalist approach to the Shaker-inspired interiors (uncluttered and minimal).
The hotel has 25 rooms, located around a central patio, on the building’s 2nd and 3rd floors. Each room combines simple materials, textiles handcrafted by Oaxacan artisans, and custom-made furniture by the local design studio La Metropolitana, including peg rails (a wooden plank with pegs), chairs, and wooden cabinets. A large platform is used as a base for the beds, which are covered with beige sheets. The doors and windows are made of ash wood and the lighting features Cestita Batería bedside lamps. Some rooms have barrel-vaulted ceilings with red tiles. Most have their own patio, while others have a balcony and a view over Guatemala Street. The Top Suite has a bathtub, while the rest of the rooms have rain showers.
The first floor of the hotel houses a mercado, with a variety of stores and dining options. The Ona restaurant is a culinary pop-up restaurant perched on the roof, offering French cuisine with Mexican flavors. Right next door, there is a swimming pool and a terrace with panoramic views of the city. A series of prints by the photographer Manuel Álvarez Bravo are on display in different areas of the hotel.
Círculo Mexicano is a destination in itself, offering an exclusive selection of cuisine, fashion, and design.
