The impressive lobby of Gran Hotel Cuidad de Mexico
Discover the Old World elegance of the Gran Hotel Ciudad de México, an exquisite turn-of-the-century property perfectly located in downtown Mexico City.

You can feel the history from the moment you step inside. From the Art Nouveau décor to the gilded open elevators and immaculate stained-glass ceiling in the lobby, every inch of the Gran Hotel Ciudad de México pays tribute to the past while providing the comfort you expect from a fine luxury hotel.

The palatial ambience continues in the guest rooms. Enjoy a unique blend of traditional and contemporary décor as you sink into a plush bed. Many rooms also feature stunning views of the vibrant Zócalo square just outside the hotel.

You can also marvel at spectacular scenery from the Terraza Restaurant, which is perched on the fifth floor.
The elegant elevator featured in Licence To Kill (1989)
Remember James Bond walking into his Isthmus’ hotel with Miss Pam Bouvier? A huge chandelier in the background, a modest reception counter in a beautiful, but hardly visible hotel lounge, and a colourful elevator, are just some of the hard to ignore impressions left by Bond’s hotel arrival-scene in Licence To Kill.

In 2015 James Bond returned to Mexico City in SPECTRE and the pre-title sequence was set around the Zocalo, or main square, next to the hotel. During the first minutes of the film, we follow Bond and Estrella through the Day of the Dead festivities. They enter the hotel and take the elevator up to their room. The interior of their room was a set at Pinewood Studios though..
