Newly opened in Mexico City’s Colonia Roma Norte neighborhood, Colima 71 offers a new hotel experience inspired by the creative spirit of the area.
Designed by architectural practice T.A.X., led by Alberto Kalach, Colima 71 exemplifies the locally based firm’s design philosophy of seamlessly integrating architecture with nature. The hotel’s contemporary design blends industrial materials, like metal and stone, with its surroundings. Private balconies, for instance, offer views of an interior courtyard, while an intimate, sunken lounge boasts high windows that allow in natural light.
The interior design, overseen by NOMAH and Karla Celerio, evokes an atmosphere that celebrates Mexico City’s diverse artistry. Marble and wood elements are complemented by curved furnishings upholstered in rich fabrics.
Guests can also enjoy various art installations, including a photography collection by Mexico City native Iñaki Bonillas and a sculpture—crafted from bicycle tires, stainless steel, and brass—by Guatemalan artist Darío Escobar. The courtyard features a hand-carved fireplace, along with a latticework installation designed by artist Sofía Táboas.
Colima 71’s 16 bespoke studio accommodations boast floor-to-ceiling windows or private balconies with views of Colima Street or the hotel’s peaceful courtyard. Neutral tones and furniture with clean, organic lines are juxtaposed by striking materials like marble, terrazzo, and wood. Each guestroom incorporates a full kitchen, dining area, and king-sized bed outfitted with Portuguese bedding.
