“Charming boutique hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012 via mobile

Our second visit to this lovely hotel. Welcoming staff (many recognising us from previous visit two years ago) to this cosy hotel built in the early 1900s. Centrally located in a safe area of this huge City and within easy walking distance of Museums and many fine restaurants. Rooms good size with comfortable beds and en-suite facilities. Strongly recommend.

Stayed April 2012

My husband and I drove from our house in Puerto Vallarta to Mexico DF. The hotel let us park our car outside the front door for several days as we toured. They found us a driver to give us a personal tour. Lovely visit in Mexico DF.

From the moment I walked in I loved this hotel. Wonderful rooms with old clocks in the halls. Incredibly comfortable beds, lovely hot shower and wifi all over. Also good food in the restaurant. Super location for the brilliant anthropological museum. Go. It's great.

This hotel was a disappointment. The outside of the hotel does not look like a hotel. The reception and its staff is not nice. We always treat people in a nice way, smiling but the people working there did not respond to our kind attitude. They did not make us feel welcome at all. The breakfast and the staff there is also very bad. Small breakfast and the people working there are not nice at all. They should not be working at a hotel. The rooms are clean and roomy but of very old standard. Also the hotel is very badly sound proofed. You can hear everything going on in the rooms on the sides.

My fiancée and I have been looking at many hotels across Zona Rosa/Condesa/Roma to find a place to host my family when they arrive for our wedding. At La Casona, we had a much more unpleasant experience than anywhere else. I don't if it was the way we looked or something but the man at the desk didn't seem too interested in talking to us and giving us information. When we asked about room prices, he said that it would be "maybe 3000, maybe 4000." When we asked if there were rooms with two beds, he never really said yes or no. When we asked to see a room, he just kind of shrugged his shoulders and said that none were available. Certainly we understand if he can't show us anything because they're all occupied but elsewhere the staff would apologize, describe the rooms to us, show us brochures. Here, they just really didn't seem interested in having our business. BTW, my fiancée is Mexican and all the interaction was done in Spanish.

We had booked a room at Hotel Maria Cristina near the Zona Rosa and really did not like the room, the restaurant, or the neighborhood. We moved to La Casona and for a little more money had a very charming hotel with great service, good food (free breakfast buffet), and a great neighborhood.
The staff at this hotel was really superb.

I challenge you to look at the other "boutique" hotels in the area and see their reviews in comparison. If you plan to take the Metro at all and value service and safety, then I believe you can do little better than this hotel at this price point. Love the proximity to restaurants in the Condesa-Roma area, love the proximity to the Sevilla stop on the Linea 1 of the Metro, love having a doorman, love the friendly service. True, dated rooms compared to the US and other competing hotels in the area, true the noise is more than I would prefer, but really if the three items in my title are your priority, then you will be happy with your choice.
