Four of us had a lovely one week stay here, in three rooms. Only one room faces the street, and we did not use that one. We were in one room at the back of the front courtyard, and the two rooms at the back of the back courtyard. None of us had noise problems. The upstairs room is accessed by a very sharply turning open staircase, so is best for the young and agile.
The rooms do get cold at night, so if you don't like to use the fireplace, be sure to request an electric heater - these come with remote control, so you can turn it on in the morning while still in bed, and let the room get warm before you get out of bed.
The casa and the courtyards are just lovely - plants and ceramic objects everywhere. David, the owner, and Mario, the manager, were incredibly helpful during our stay - giving us suggestions on places to visit, and setting up tours for us. Our tour guide, Alberto, knew a great deal about the Mayan and their current lives, and our driver, Oscar, got us over many dicey roads very safely.
The Casa is only two blocks from the pedestrian street of shops of restaurants, and only about four blocks from the center (Zocalo), yet it is on a quiet street. Breakfast was excellent - over the week we tried everything, and it was all delicious. In all, this is a special, beautiful place, with very helpful staff.
