Due to a change in the flight schedule of Aeroméxico we had 25 hours of layover in Ciudad de México. The perfect option to have a look on the capital city and to warm up with Latin America. But where to spend the night? There are two hotels inside the airport building, but staying there is costly and you probably can’t get out of the hotel easily. Fortunately, there is the Fiesta Inn close to terminal 1.
It is just across the road, but this road is a motorway. You can get over on foot, but you would need to cross a pedestrian overpass which is definitely not a nice option when carrying luggage. Or travelling with a sleepy child. The good thing is that the hotel is well prepared: they’ve got a small booth in every terminal where you can just walk to and they’ll shuttle you to the hotel. We even left our luggage at the hotel while exploring the city and were brought to the other terminal afterwards. Great service!
The hotel is great, with a nice garden and a pool in between the buildings and a restaurant with a great breakfast buffet introduces you into Mexican food. Of course you need to accept the noise of the starting and landing planes, but that didn’t bother us. From the hotel it is a 30 minutes ride to the ancient city center. You can just walk over the named pedestrian bridge and at the other end you’ll find the metro station Terminal Aérea. If you want to avoid public transport, just open your Uber app. It is more comfortable and felt really safe.
