We stayed at the Maria del Alma Guest House in Coayacan, Mexico DF last February 2015, and enjoyed the warm hospitality of Fernando and Jorge Luis. They were very kind hosts, and we had the most delicious breakfast everyday, and were told about the provenance of each prepared dish, which were Mexican. They were very solicitous of our needs, pointed... More

This is a beautiful, elegant and quiet guesthouse with a lovely breakfast and two sweet, sweet, helpful hosts. The courtyard is beautifully planted, and our big room had its own private patio. Don't even consider staying anywhere else! We have been all over Mexico, and this is my favorite place by far.

Maria del Alma is a gem. In every single aspect. Starting with the owner, Fernando, who is an adorable person. Intelligent, charming, cultivated and a great cooker. This last quality makes the breakfast in the courtyard something you long for since the night before. The decoration of the whole house is beautiful, but if you want the best, get the... More

Coyoacán is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Mexico city and Maria del Alma is on the perfect spot to explore it; a large and spacious house with a very personal and genuine Mexican vibe and a lovely garden hidden from the street. Our hosts made us feel at home, shared tips and prepared a wonderful breakfast for us. I... More

Located in the beautiful and peaceful Coyoacan neighborhood, Maria del Alma is a wonderful escape and tranquil getaway from the bustling, noise and populations of Mexico City's more populated locales--Centro Historico, Condesa, Polanco. It is extremely close to the Frida Kahlo Museum (two blocks away) and even is reminiscent itself of the famous blue house, Viveros--a beautiful park to run... More

We stayed two nights in a lower Queen bedroom at the back of this lovely property. I agree with the other reviewers who said that Fernando and his associate were gracious and welcoming hosts. The room was large and nicely decorated, with a comfortable bed, and a large bathroom. We enjoyed the breakfast very much, and especially sitting around afterward... More

The hotel is not advertised on the street so don't be concerned when you rock up to a modest looking door. As is common in Coyoacan this house is hidden behind walls, and once inside the courtyard sings with birds and hums with bees. The room we stayed in was on the ground floor, its was well furnished, with a... More

We booked this small bed and breakfast on booking.com. It is one of the few bed and breakfasts/hotels in Coyoacan, Mexico City. It does not disappoint. It is about a 5 minute walk from Frida Kahlo's house and a 10 minute walk from the 2 large main squares in Coyoacan that have tons of restaurants and charming outdoor cafes. The... More

I really like this place. The house is beautiful and there is a lot of nice flowers and plants both on the terraces and in the patio. The owner and the other guy who operates the guest house are really nice and speaks English. There is a lot of birds both the owner's in cages but also wild birds: A... More

Fernando Ramirez could not have been more welcoming. South American friends and I rendezvoused in Mexico City and our stay at Maria del Alma added many superlatives to the whole experience! Enjoying delicious breakfast each morning, served by Fernando and Jorge, (sometimes with another friendly guest or two), we had the feeling that we were among friends or family. Though... More
