Serrano Monjaraz Arquitectos | Hotel La PurificadoraLocated in the city of Puebla and belonging to the Master Plan “Paseo San Francisco”, the Boutique Hotel has colonial heritage and is registered as historical patrimony, which must be respected and included as part of the new design project. The building used to be an ice factory where the water was bottled and purified. Taking this into consideration, the Boutique hotel also called “Hotel La Purificadora” was designed with the following facilities: 26 guestrooms, reception-shop, restaurant-bar, kitchen, ballrooms for events, patio with a 4-floor-height, meeting rooms, offices, and cave. The amenities include a pool, terrace for events, gym, jacuzzi, massage and a steam room.

The height of the patio is partially covered by a rooftop.

Main materials used are: stone (from the original construction) and old wood that contrast with the contemporary materials such as glass and steel incorporated in to the new design, as well as specially designed tiles for the bedrooms floors and onyx in the restrooms.
