Outsideof Mexico City, chic hotels are few and far between, and La Purificadora just happens to be one of them. Belonging to the Grupo Habita collection of hotels, La Purificadora is located in Puebla, set in a converted 19th Century water purifying factory…the clue’s in the name. Everything about the hotel has a “grand” feel to it, from the entrance to the huge staircase that leads to the rooms, open fires in the lobby, glass walkways and the glass walled swimming pool on the roof…built for Instagram, only it’s not heated so you will need to brace yourself.
Whilst the hotel might feel grand there’s actually only 26 rooms, given letters A – Z. We stayed in a Superior room which was cleverly designed to feel bright and airy, with a huge floor to ceiling window at one end and a wardrobe made from clear perspex so that you could look right through. The rooms come with everything you need; toiletries, robes, slippers and a comfy, comfy bed. There’s also a restaurant on site too, which is where breakfast is served although we’d say skip it and get something out. This was the only thing that was not so great. If you’re going to Puebla there’s really only one hotel to be checking into…[URIS id=61704]
