  • 10.0.Exceptional

    I really enjoyed and loved staying at this hotel. It is absolutely breathtaking. The style of the hotel is boutique and garden like. The staff was so welcoming, helpful, and polite. The hotel was also very clean and took safety precautions. As a VIP member I would have liked a room upgrade which they did not offer. The most I received was a glass of champagne. The food in the restaurant was not great and had limited variety. Nothing the neighborhood can’t fix since the hotel is located in a great and beautiful area in the Zona Colonia which offers a wonderful historical scenery and a variety of restaurants to choose from. Aside from this overall, I really enjoyed my stay at the Bellini and hope to return soon. Excellent, excellent, hotel!!!

    Cumple las expectativas

    El personal nos atendió muy bien. Pese a que llegamos tarde al hotel nos prepararon la cena. El servicio de mantenimento muy rápido. Respecto a la habitación fallan pequeñas cosas pero son fáciles de subsanar (en la ducha se sale el agua, la lámpara al lado de la cama es muy grande y molesta, la tablet pegada a la mesita de noche por lo que no puedes colocar nada encima...). La zona de la piscina es muy bonita con vistas a una iglesia. El servicio de taxi excelente.
