In general we prefer small up scale hotels. We found Las Alobaas via a search on the internet. It is located in Polanco which is an area that is describe as the Beverly Hills of Mexico City (or DF as the locals call it) and judging by the prices in the local stores, it is a good description. We wanted stay in Polanco because it was our first time in Mexico City and we had some concerns about safety. We felt totally secure and safe but frankly, we felt that way in many areas of the city.
The Hotel has only 35 rooms. We were upgraded to a Penthouse which was very spacious, modern and comfortable. There was an outside deck and we had amazing views. Our room was number 72. We were there five nights and could have stayed longer.
The staff were wonderful. They were warm, friendly and most importantly very competent. Our consigere, Leo, was so helpful before and during our trip. He arranged reservation at some wonderful restaurants. He arranged a guide and driver for us for four of our five days. The guide was excellent and really made a difference with respect to the quality of our over all experience. The guide's name Caesar. The driver was also excellent and his name is Sergio.
We had breakfast in the hotel every morning. The head water was very helpful and in addition to wonderful service, he also provide some sight seeing tips. His name is Louis. My wife discovered a special kind of mexican coffee called Cafe Olla which is a blend of Mexican Coffee, Cinnamon and special sugar. When we told him about her discovery, he was able to get the chief to make it for her every day.
