My husband and I recently spent 3 days at the Dakota B and B while vacationing in Mexico City, before going to Puebla. We enjoyed it so much, we extended our trip, returned to Mexico city and stayed an additional 4 days at Dakota B and B. The rooms were nice and clean, the shared bathroom was fine, and the common areas were pleasant. We enjoyed the nice breakfasts, which usually included fresh juice, good coffee, nice bread, and a main dish of eggs, french toast, or quesadillas. There was usually some special touch, like homemade jam. The best thing about the place, however, is the owner Max. He is deeply knowledgeable about Mexico City and he helped us to plan our days with easy public transportation, interesting (and sometimes off the beaten path) places to visit, and fun places to eat. He keeps a couple of inexpensive and good bottles of wine on hand for purchase, and several times he joined us in the evening for interesting discussions about Mexico City history, culture, and society. Fascinating! We were lucky during our visit to share the B and B with several interesting "housemates", including a classical violin trio who plalyed a concert for us (really they were practicing, but it was amazing). The location is great. It's super easy to get around using public transportation (which Max will guide you through) and most of the big tourist atrractions are quite close.
If you need absolute silence to sleep, this isn't the place for you, as you can hear some house noises from the bedroom, but the neighborhood is quite tranquil and quiet, and the house rules suggest quiet hours from 10 pm to 8 am.
All in all, Dakota is a great place and I highly recommend it!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our house has an architectural style known as colonial californiano. In the past, enormous lands with houses in this style, in fashion during the 30's and 40's, charaterized the Colonia Napoles.
