On the recommendation of a friend who had stayed in Casa Gonzalez often since the 1970s, my son, myself and 3 teen aged girls spent last weekend there. We were warned not to expect glossy high style accommodations. We didn't expect to find a treasure. The hotel is made up of three large 1920's house braided together without the interference of an architect or designer. Much of the furniture is from the 30's, the dining room has a portrait of a stylish lady in period evening dress, and possibly some interesting traveler will be enjoying the nicely served breakfast at the same time you are. It's a little like visiting your great aunt if you were lucky enough to have one who had hung onto the family house in a good neighborhood (the British Embassy is down the street). The staff were warm, welcoming and eager to help. You park your car within the gates. It was cool when we were there so didn't miss air-conditioning. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The beds are okay if not luxurious and the bedding borders on eccentric. An example of the friendly, personal service: I left my small down pillow behind and it was sent by courier the next day! All this for an amazingly low price for a desirable, convenient area in Mexico City!
