La Purificadora Puebla, Mexico

“This renovated former water factory pays homage to modern design at its best. Its alchemists combined the old and the new with strikingly chic effect. Original facades, sleek lines, and enormous spaces. The restaurant draws a lively crowd and the spa is spoiling.”

Photo of La Purificadora

“A former 19th century water factory near the site of an old convent, this ultra-modern hotel is a symphony of old and new. Reclaimed timber sits alongside slick black stone, the original façade still bears the factory name and rooms have chunky glass balconies and wet rooms clad in local onyx. The restaurant serves exquisite contemporary Mexican cuisine and is a big draw for the local glitterati.”

Coolest Hotel Lobbies

"La Purificadora in Puebla’s historic city center has clear echoes of its past as a 19th-century water-bottling facility—nowhere more so than in its stunning open-air lobby."
