Looking for a nice and quiet place to stay in Coyoacán? Hostal Frida is the perfect place if you want to be within walking distance from the center of this beautiful area of Mexico City, the Viveros park and metro stations. Hostal Frida offers very nice and clean rooms, with a small kitchen and bathroom. Ideal for families as well.... More

I paid for six nights total and ask for a my receipt. They didn't give me any receipt but promised to send it to my room later (which never happened). Then they tried to charge me for the room again over and over during my stay (again even though I'd prepaid for six nights). I spent the next four days... More

I have stopped several times at the Frida Hostal and my experience is similar to R Owen. I also asked why if it says B&B and the answer was just ignored. I also asked about laundry and had similar answer.. Its only advantage is location and for me is crucial because my purpose of business is only blocks away. However,... More

Hostal Frida could be a nice place as it is an interesting house in a great location, but it suffers from a severe lack of attention. When I arrived at the time I had said I would, the owners were not home and the housekeeper didn't seem to expect me. She tried without success to call the owners a number... More

I have stayed in the Hostal Frida twice now, and there is only one reason to stay there: to be in Coyoacan. The location is great, walking distance to the subway station, to the center of Coyoacan, to the Museum Frida Kahlo and to an excellent breakfast place. I love staying in Coyoacan and there isn't really a good alternative,... More

We decided to stay at the "B & B" Hostal Frida after stumbling across their website. The website advertised itself as a bed and breakfast and also stated, I quote "Hostal Frida offers spacious and well-lighted suites, measuring 26m2. All have a view of the interior patio. They are one-bedroom units with two beds. All have closets, drawers, bathroom, well-equipped... More

Coyoacan is my favorite neighborhood in Mexico City. I usually stay down town at one of the major hotels when I am there on business, but wanted to mix it up. The fact it is a Hostal made me a little nervous but I trusted other reviews I read. The room was immaculate and I was in walking distance to... More

I enjoyed my stay in this private home, where the owner (or owners) still lives: you will notice lots of family pictures in the living room, all personal belongings around the house and even books and dvds in the rooms. There is a very friendly person that works there during commercial hours of weekdays, but the people who live there... More

Thanks to a Trip Advisor contributor, we found Hostal Frida B y B, right in the heart of Coyoacan. This is where we wanted to base ourselves -- somewhere relaxing and cute, but also close enough to the metro to get to other parts of the city. The location of Hostal Frida B y B (5 minute walk from the... More

Staying in Coyoacan

Neighborhood Profile
Coyoacan
Once you step into Coyoacán (“Land of the Coyotes”) you'll find picturesque parks and cantinas that will transport you back to the colonial era thanks to the brick and stone details of the area. Iconic writers such as Trotsky and great painters like Frida Kahlo seeked refuge and inspiration in this area, and you can see the unique spirit of this neighborhood reflected in its colorful market where nieves, sopes and all kinds of traditional 'antojitos' are a must try. Restaurants and cafés throughout its peaceful paved streets contain traditional but unique murals and decorations, where one can enjoy a mezcal at noon or the best churros with a cup of coffee.
