With a recent launch week full of events and activations to christen, Volga, a new luxury hotel concept for Hamak Hotels boutique hotel collection, has more than made a statement with its arrival — Hotel Volga in a coveted central location has potential to change the CDMX landscape.
Here are five reasons to book the 49-room luxury boutique Hotel Volga, already a hotspot for locals and expats alike, and a much-needed shake up for design-driven hotels in Mexico City for travelers.
5 Reasons To Book Hotel Volga In Mexico City
1) The Architecture
The most prominent, stand-out feature of Hotel Volga is its design and architecture, from its hulking brutalist exterior that gives way to the sacred space within, to its over-the-top, daring design decisions and features, such as a custom several-story staircase and interior design. JSa Architecture with Javier Sanchez and team created a raw, welcome canvas for Instagram-ready backdrops.
A Volga experience isn’t complete without time spent on its rooftop pool with 360 degree city views.
From Ernesto the concierge, well-wishing you at your departing airport via whatsapp even before your journey has begun, to checkout with car service at the ready, the service at Volga is memorable. Each and every touchpoint with Team Volga sets a new standard in professionalism and service. The staff under General Manager Stefano’s care is both invisible and omni-present. The immediacy of service, in addition to the subtle unexpected touches of care, can be felt — and appreciated — through a traveler’s visit.
3) Food and Beverage
The food program is a dance between Mexico city’s celebrated restauranteur Edo Kobayashi and Volga’s head chef, Juan Manuel González, who present a refreshing and compelling culinary experience.
From the mediterranean approach of Elora, Volga’s main lobby restaurant, to it’s bespoke Mexican breakfast choices, the foodie/mixology adventure is a welcome delight and quite notable for both guests and locals alike.
In addition to breakfasts and brunches, and carefully curated mixology menu, a poolside, rooftop menu and room service, guests can expect an Omakase and speakeasy to open later this year.
4) The Neighborhood
Location, location, location! Hotel Volga is minutes from hotspot neighborhoods of Condesa and Roma. The Cuauhtemoc area of CDMX is now the hottest area of growth for hospitality, dining and nightlife. With its proximity to Reforma, the Angel of Independence and countless museums and parks, Cuauthemoc is quickly becoming the must visit center of the CDMX renaissance that has been sweeping across the tourists and locals alike.
Volga is one block from Reforma Ave and 2 blocks from the famed “Angel of Independence” statue.
5) The Experience
From the food and beverage and service to the architecture and guestrooms, travelers will appreciate the “Volga” experience with various art and social concepts. All guests will have the opportunity to interact with the art of globally renowned Perla Krauze and her large scale lava, stone, brass and travertine artwork, — as it is center stage, as the floor beneath the grand atrium.
Guestroom interiors boast Turkish marble distinct to the classes of suites along with a soothing scent collaboration with Aromaria for a Volga line of bathroom products.
