During the 17th and 18th Centuries this botique was a structure in the cathedral complex across the street, then a private dwelling. The rooms have modern baths and furnishing but mine lacked lamps for reading. That is a trade-off one makes when staying in a centuries old building with thick walls and few windows. The location could not be better for exploring this beautiful "land of eternal spring". The garden couryard is beatifully landscaped. An adjoining house was being readied for occupancy at the end of the garden. Morning breakfast attracted business people from outside enjoying delicious Mexican breakfast specialties served poolside. There is a poolside bar and indoor restaurant. There were few guests so evening diners were being directed to other places. Cuernavaca has some of the finest restaurants anywhere - Las Mananitas or El Madrigal being superb spots (take a taxi). Casa Colonial is a great base for exploring this city which has been a favorite since Hernan Cortez, following Moctezuma's lead, built his winter palace down the street and his hacienda on the south side in the early 1500s. Emperor Maximillian used the nearby Borda Gardens as a country retreat and kept his India Bonita not far away. Use caution at night as the city has its problems. Be prudent but venture forth.
