Fodor's Expert Review Camino Real Aeropuerto

Mexico City, Quintana Roo, 15520, Mexico See on Map

This sleek hotel can be reached from the airport via a short, covered footbridge. Even if you're only between flights and don't overnight, you can sit in one of the overstuffed chairs in the soothing lobby, get a day pass to the huge indoor pool, or catch a meal in the restaurants to get away from the frantic energy of the airport.

YOU SHOULD KNOW The once-luxe hotel is showing signs of wear, with many rooms are much more in need of updating than others.


Sealed double windows keep out most airport noise, but ask for a quieter room if noise is a concern. Rooms in general are light and cheery, but most could use updating.


Marble bathrooms are clean but could use updating.

The lobby is busy and convivial with comfortable chairs and sofas; many non-guests spend long layovers here.

Massive indoor heated pool.


Spa services available on request at front desk.


Large and modern, accessible 24 hours.

Non-guests on long airport layovers can get a day pass to the gym and pool, with a locker.


Cualli (Mexican cuisine) is the best of the three on-site restaurants, though meat-lovers should hit La Mansion next door.


The lobby bar has a comfy living-room vibe.


Getting Around

There's very little near the airport itself, but ride-share cars are plentiful and affordable to almost anywhere in the city.


With several locations around town, Fonda Argentina (9-minute drive) is a reliable choice for Argentinian-style grilled beef. Mariscos Popocatépetl (6-minute drive) serves fresh seafood with warm service and, often, live ranchera music.


With virtually no non-hotel bar in the immediate area, you're best off at the hotel bar, or the nearby Hilton's lobby bar.


One of the two best airport-hotel options.
