I had found this place for my parents who were travelling with us to Mexico City. We stayed in a hotel at the top of Parque de Mexico for two nights and then here for a night.
At 85USD/night this is not by any means a cheap sleep in Mexico City but the price is justified. The decor of this B&B (but It's more a boutique hotel really) is modern, striking and very attractive. The common areas are full with interesting artefacts, books and works of art. There is a hi-fi, grand piano, internet and a guest kitchen. At the rear of the hotel there is a courtyard garden around which many of the rooms are located.
The bedrooms are magnificently appointed and designed in a contemporary and individual style. In-room safes, ceiling fan, wifi access and cable TV. There is also a very thoughtfully compiled guest handbook with many useful entries of restaurants, shops, bars, taquerias etc.... this is a real help. The guest kitchen has a supply of bottled water for guests which again is commendable. Bathroom was well appointed and there was ample hot water - would have liked a little more water pressure but this was adequate.
Breakfast is included and is an excellent selection of fruit, cereal, yogurt etc with a hot dish prepared by the muchachas. We had some really good blue corn quesadillas when we stayed with a particularly good salsa verde (hot!)
So.. by this point we were thinking that this place is good... then there is the staff....
All members of staff really went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we wanted. They were really helpful and suggested some sight seeing itineraries that we could build in to our schedule as well as recommending bars, restaurants, shops etc.. they were genuinely interested in their guests and take their role, to make sure everyone is completely satisfied, very seriously indeed.
This is a truly exceptional place to stay. Full marks! Would definitely return when I am next in Mexico City.
