Today, Sonder opened its first location in Latin America, in the Condesa neighborhood in Mexico City. Sonder’s launch in the market will provide guests with a next-generation hospitality option, with top tier design, comfort and cleanliness measures — including a zero-contact check-in process.
With 16 apartment-style spaces, the building is set on tree-lined streets with unique art deco architecture, and in walking distance to number of acclaimed restaurants.
“We are very happy to announce the launch of Sonder in Mexico, as the first city in Latin America in which we are starting operations. We bring solid and long-term plans that will undoubtedly benefit our guests, but will also promote the recovery of local economies and the reactivation of the tourism sector in Mexico”, commented Roberto Fernández del Castillo, General Manager of Sonder in Mexico.
Since the company first started working on expansion plans, Sonder’s local team has been in direct contact with the Ministry of Tourism of Mexico City. Sonder is committed to work hand-in-hand with local authorities, and complying with all the relevant requirements to tax obligations.
“We have always thought that the new accommodation platforms that have emerged in the world in recent years should become strategic allies for all of Mexico City’s tourist activity. That is why we are very happy to receive the first investments from Sonder, wishing them much success in their foray into this wonderful city, Cultural Capital of America”. mentions Carlos Mackinlay Grohmann; Secretary of Tourism of Mexico City.
In Mexico City alone, Sonder estimates an investment close to 80 million dollars over the next 5 years. The reactivation of the tourism sector, as well as the Mexican economy, will directly benefit from the arrival of the company in the country.
