(PUEBLA, MEXICO) Oct. 9, 2018 – Condé Nast Traveler today announced the results of its 31st annual Readers’ Choice Awards with Puebla’s Hotel Cartesiano recognized as the #2 Hotel in the World and the #1 Hotel in Mexico. Hotel Cartesiano opened January 2018 in the center of Puebla, an historic Mexican city renowned for its rich history and colonial architecture. The 78-room boutique hotel is a benchmark for discovering the charming city and is located within walking distance of numerous historical sites, including the Cathedral of Puebla, the city square, and the Amparo Museum. Hotel Cartesiano maps the intersection of Puebla’s history and rebirth, with delicate interior and exterior design woven with artful touches of Mexican art and architectural elements. Guests can enjoy a rooftop pool and deck with commanding views of the city, as well as two fine dining restaurants, a bar, lounge, library and The Spa at Cartesiano, featuring energetic balancing treatments rooted in ancient practices.
This gorgeous property was created from a centuries-old tile factory in the heart of Puebla, an historic city in central Mexico known for its vibrant colonial architecture, culinary history and rich culture. Cartesiano is located in the city's historic center, between brightly painted colo- nial homes and storefronts. Beautifully restored into a luxury hotel, Cartesiano does a brilliant job of fusing old and new, knowing exactly where to preserve and where to introduce modern features. The annex features walls inlaid with colorful, hand-painted ceramic tiles, many of which were found on site from the former tile factory and restored. The amazing views from the hotel's rooftop heated pool are the perfect place to enjoy the majesty of the city.
