Hotel Carlota Mexico

Hotel Carlota is a spectacular fusion between original and contemporary. Located in the heart of Mexico City, the hotel has a main focal point in its beautiful central courtyard and stunning pool. It is overlooked by the restaurant and bar, as well as the library, shop, and gallery areas. Concrete was used heavily throughout the building, and it merges beautifully with industrial, technological and artisan elements. Each of the hotel´s 36 rooms have their own unique design, created in collaboration with a team of Mexican designers who took care of every detail. The use of simple, honest materials give the hotel a laid-back, casual elegance.
