If you want a typical American big city chain hotel, you will not like Hotel Casa Gonzalez. It is a little on the funky side. Each room is unique, not "cookie cutter". And the buldings are actual older homes,linked together. The restaurant is Mexican home cooking and not "nouvelle cuisine" and the restaurant staff have limited English. But the rooms are clean, beds are very comfortable, there is plenty of hot water for a good shower. The courtyards are charming and quiet oases, full of blooming plants and nice places to sit. The four in our party loved playing a game of cards in the evenings at a table in the courtyard. We could walk to the Zona Rosa to many great restaurants. We were enchanted and will never stay anywhere else next time we are in Mexico city.
This was our first trip to CDMX and we wanted to stay in a hotel that had a Mexican feel, rather than something from the U.S. The hotel is built around an enclosed courtyard, is kept clean, has a good location, and had a nice feel, but it has limitations. For example, we had to run the hot water in the shower for roughly a minute before it warmed up. And there is no option for making hot water for coffee or tea in the room. The restuarant does not open until 7:30 which is a problem if you have an 8:00 am appointment. The front desk said they could make coffee 24 hours per day, but the desk attendant on duty at 6:00 am couldn’t operate the coffee maker. We enjoyed our time in CDMX, but would probably look for other accommodations if we return.
Located on a reasonably quiet street, the hotel has a quaint and quiet courtyard. Everything was in working condition, albeit a bit on the aged side-of-things. The hotel is non-descript, so you have to pay attention to address numbers on the street, and you ring a buzzer to initially get in (your keys get you in after checkin). Room decode was comprised of beautiful antique furniture. Everything was clean. There was a ceiling fan but no a/c in the room. Bottled water provided in-room. Gracious staff, and the front desk person spoke enough English to accommodate my lack of Spanish. Breakfast was authentic and absolutely delicious. The dining area is comprised of a few large communal tables. There was no way to boil water in my room, so coffee setup is in their on-site restaurant where meals are served.…
This is a very simple lovely hotel. Old set of houses built around a court yard. Rooms are great, staff extremely helpful--really do make you feel at home. For an added bonus you have to try the chicken soup which is out of this world
Lovely, low key hotel. Excellent breakfast. Great outdoor seating. Helpful and friendly staff. Comfortable room. Very good location. Easy access to the parks and museums. Close to the subway. Quick Uber rides anywhere. Really, a terrific place.
