“Our home away from home.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

The staff here are warm and accommodating that they always make us feel as if we are their only guests. This is a lovely place in a wonderful location, Condesa. Although it is tricky for many taxi drivers to find, you can get directions from the airport and from Terminal de Norte in English and in Spanish from their website.

I decided at last minute to take a quick detour on my way home from Zihuatanejo, in Mexico City. I stayed in a courtyard room on the first floor at the Red Tree House. The taxi from the airport had a hard time finding it but luckily with a smart phone anything is possible! Once we were in Colonia Condesa, it was easy to find and super centrally located in that neighborhood. Yellow house - big tree. As everyone has mentioned, the hosts are beyond gracious and friendly. They speak perfect English - very hard to find in that city - and will help you as much or as little as you like. Breakfast is served daily, with a buffet offering of cereals, breads, yogurts and such; and the kitchen prepares one signature Mexican dish each day (during my stay we had an omelet with pico de gallo and a mole chicken tortilla dish. Both were good. The kitchen will also make you simple eggs, as I watched them do so for an British couple who preferred this option.
My room was comfortable and homey - I had the best sleep I'd had on my vacation while there. The courtyard evening happy hour should not be missed - I had some great conversations with fellow travelers, and at least one of the hosts is always around - drinks (wine and beer) are complimentary! I did have some noise from the courtyard during my stay - and I would imagine this is normal since the noise echoes. I was traveling alone and didn't mind it at all, because I felt like I was in a little community. If you want a perfectly quiet stay, ask for a room facing the street or up on a higher floor. The grounds were absolutely modern, beautiful and clean. Best of all, it is located in a perfect area for exploring restaurants and bars, jogging the park, and intermingling with the residents of the Colonia. When checking out, be aware that they do offer to waive the 19% tax on your remaining bill, if you pay in cash - which is a great deal.
Loved the experience and will definitely be back.

This is an outstanding B&B hotel. You will be hard put to find better accomodations, friendlier service, great breakfasts, fun cocktail hour, nor better people to deal with. But......You must be a seasoned traveller, as it is not located in a tourist supported area of the city; it is located in the Condesa district that is a good upper middle class area, with very local support but a little less support for the new traveller. What do I mean? ......the sidewalks are in need of repair, very little street lighting and activity close by to make you feel comfortably safe, you might prefer to call a cab instead of venturing to the Metro in the evenings for this reason, and you would need the hotel staff to call a cab for you because there aren't any waiting close by in the area. Just little niceties, but imperatives if you have not travelled to strange places before.
With that all said, I encourage you to book here if you think you can overcome those fears. It is the best ever over the last 27 years of my traveling the world! It won't be easy. It has been discovered.

Room Tip: Request a room in the main complex to share in the friendliness of gatherings in their courtyard

Very friendly, food was great, very clean everywhere. This is a very special place, in a special area of town, away from the hustle and bustle. We had some of the best breakfasts of our entire trip. You'll be certain to make new friends at this place.

Fantastic place! Great rooms, impeccable service and attention to detail, easy to lounge around and talk to other guests staying there. Location is great as well, within walking distance to restaurants and bars. And the value for money is second to none. Highly, highly recommend!!!

I can't imagine a better place to stay in Mexico City than the Red Tree House. Big, comfortable rooms and the best breakfast we had in all of Mexico (every morning we had a different traditional dish). The hosts were all very friendly and were more than willing to assist us with daily activities and restaurant recommendations. Definitely 5 star quality, service and location. By the way, Mexico City is not the dangerous place the ('american') media portrays it to be, we never once felt unsafe.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good.

From the moment we arrived to the time we left, this B&B delivered great hospitality, high quality service and a relaxing, comfortable atmosphere. It is located in a great section of Mexico City, the staff truly are amazing the way they learn everyone's name and how they interact with guests at breakfast and to answer any question (travel, restaurants, sites, etc.) and wine at night is fantastic.

Props to Jorge and Craig and their great staff: Ernesto, Edwardo, Alajendro and the Kitchen Staff!

Book early, the word's getting out!

Room Tip: rooms facing the patio garden are the best - we stayed in the Oaxaca room and loved it!
