Hotel Volga (simply called Volga by the cool kids) by Mexico’s uber-chic hospitality collection Hamak Hotels, brings a unique blend of minimalist design and immersive experience to Mexico City’s burgeoning Cuauhtemoc (kwau-te-moc) neighbourhood.  Opened in June, and with only 50 rooms, an onsite restaurant, and a rotation of art and entertainment, the boutique Volga is an exciting addition to the vibrant downtown CDMX scene.

Hotel Volga’s modern design is only part of its appeal

Design

Designed by Aisha Ballesteros, Benedikt Fahlbusch and Javier Sanchez of JSa Architecture, Volga features a hulking, brutalist exterior that leads to a contemporary minimalist interior. Spaces are simultaneously soothing and theatrical, accented by both elegant and raw materials, colors and textures including large-scale lava, stone, brass and travertine artwork of world-renowned sculptor, painter and visual artist Perla Krauze. 

A Place to Stay, A Place to Play

Conceived as more than a hotel, Volga is intended to be an immersive hospitality experience with an ever-evolving roster of music, art, and cuisine at its center. 

The popular Roma and Condesa neighbourhoods are within walking distance, and Volga is just a block away from Paseo de la Reforma, making it a cetrally located and sophisticated enclave for trendsetters, culture enthusiasts, gastronomy and mixology aficionados, and art connoisseurs, thanks to evocative art installations and exclusive pop-ups showcasing globally recognized artists.

Volga’s signature restaurant, Elora, is curated by restaurateur Edo Kobayashi and features the renowned entrepreneur’s first foray into Mediterranean cuisine. Guests will also find small bites and ethnobotanical mixology while lounging poolside on the rooftop that offers a 180-degree panoramic view of Mexico City. 

With music as a core artistic focus, Hotel Volga hosts a calendar of live performances both on the rooftop and in its underground Music Room. 

Additionally, Volga features TIER 2/5, a concept store curated by local tastemaker Sally Gallante, as well as a dedicated exhibition space, a Mezcaleria and tasting table, and a meditative garden that serves as an oasis of calm.

Local Culture

Mexico City’s rise as a sought-after destination is showing no signs of slowing down and Volga Hotel intricately weaves into that vibrant local cultural tapestry. Hotel Volga is surrounded by the best street food in the world (or Michelin starred restaurants, if you’d rather). The chic Cuauhtémoc neighbourhood is also known for its numerous independent designer stores, popular among Mexico City insiders.

 

Guest Rooms

Hotel Volga features 50 impeccably designed guest accommodations including 34 deluxe rooms, 14 elegant suites and two spacious primary suites, all adorned with distinct Turkish marble and a soothing scent collaboration with Aromaria as part of a line of custom bath amenities.

About CDMX

The Ciudad de México, CDMX, is the capital of Mexico, the United Mexican States. It’s also the most populous city in North America. Located entirely within the Valley of Mexico, the altitude is 2,240 metres (7,350 feet), although many parts of the city are somewhat higher. As a cultural destination it is unrivaled in the Americas. It has more museums than any city on Earth, save London. The population of the city thrives on good food, an exquisite culture that is the culmination of not only previous cultures, but of the many influences to have touched the city from abroad.  It’s a city that has it all!
