Oh to be in the heart of this wonderful and exciting city, but have this oasis to retreat to after a busy day of sightseeing and shopping! You must be rung in to get inside this "one of a kind" architecturally beautiful hotel. After checking in with extremely helpful staff, you are then lead into this open air courtyard that is rimmed with all the 7 rooms and 1 large two story suite. Rooms #1 and #2 are probably the least desirable because they are darker and don't have great lighting, but after staying 7 nights there, the service, food and cleanliness make even that seem less bothersome. It is exciting to go to breakfast here (which is included in the cost along with all taxes) because the choices are so varied, all cooked to order and delicious. We did not eat dinner here, but if you do, it will be a treat like no other. The restaurant is closed to outside people so you just may be the only ones having a special dinner prepared just for you. I did attend their Cooking Class with Chef Alehandro (sp) and I highly recommend this treat. He is a delightful, friendly person, who along with his assistant, will take you grocery shopping into one of the many huge Mexican markets that will have you picture taking at every opportunity. YOU choose what you want to cook and eat and then shop accordingly. There is nothing too exotic or difficult for them to prepare (along with your help). We had a seafood cerviche, exotic salad, beef mole AND three desserts. One dish more exotic and delicious then the next! Fresh flowers in the bath and bedroom changed during our stay, beds completely changed daily and clean towels twice a day. Nothing is skimped on here especially the wonderful service.
