Back in 2000 when it opened, the Enrique Norten-designed, glass-enclosed, Hotel Habita was Mexico City’s very first design hotel, and even today it remains among a very few. Located on Masaryk, one of the city’s main high-end shopping drags, the minimalist decor, white-washed industrial interiors and roof deck pool still lure locals for the bar scene, and foreigners for the perfectly comfortable—if a little sparse—industrial rooms. While owner Carlos Couturier has gone on to open several more scene-stealing hotels in the city and further afield, the rooftop pool and bar at the hotel remain a night-time fixture.
