How to Get There
This charming boutique hotel is just blocks from the Sto. Domingo Plaza and easy walking distance to the Zocalo.
The styling of the hotel is beautiful and full of art. In fact the courtyard is so picturesque that locals come with their photographers for photo shoots.
The staff were super attentive and helpful in all moments. The restaurant in the hotel was not a destination, but it was perfectly nice for the breakfasts that we ate there.
Special amenities include a pour of mescal (Koch brand with hotel label) upon check-in, a blue scarf, a straw hat, a market shopping bag, daily rich and delicious chocolates, and loaner umbrellas when needed.
Each room is unique. We stayed in two different rooms during our visit. A standard room with a king bed and Suite Dubon. I liked both rooms for different reasons. The standard room had a bigger window, a window seat and a table with chairs. However, our shower was enclosed only by a curtain which felt a bit constraining for a , and shower water splashed across the floor. The Suite Dubon had a very interesting wood platform built around the bed. The Suite Dubon bathroom was bigger and there was much more separation between between shower, sink, and toilet making it more comfortable to use. However, there weren’t as many comfortable sitting / working spaces in this suite as there were in a standard room.
Air conditioning and water pressure and heated water all worked flawlessly for us. Unfortunately for us, the air conditioners in both of our rooms pointed directly at the beds, so we got creative with suitcases and pillows to divert the air flow.
We were always able to get wifi in our rooms. Depending on location with the hotel and time of day wifi speeds ranged from 6 to 60 Mbps download and 2 to 20 Mbps download. I was able to use the wifi for the transfer of large data files and for making wifi calls.
We also enjoyed going into the hotel study / library as a place to work outside of our rooms. However, that location was not always available because it was sometimes rented out for workshops and meetings.
Overall, we really enjoyed the hotel for its location, great staff, beautiful aesthetics and great amenities.
This hotel is more for design lovers than for people looking for comfort. Is located a few blocks from the main streets, so it is very calmed and peaceful. Rooms are small and impractical but the whole house is very beautiful. A big patio designed by local artist Toledo.
A private engagement forestalled our dinnertime plan. While researching, the place directly across the street seemed of interest. After checking the menu, voila', our experience was exquisite. The chef described the preparation and presentation of our choices and we were well pleased overall. My market salad of locally grown fresh greens, the octopus appetizer and the wines were great. The atmosphere was quiet and unpretentious, the staff were in step with our needs from moment to moment and the entrees artistically presented. All in all we agreed that this was our best find yet.
Stayed with family for sightseeing. Very friendly staff, courteous & helpful. Would definitely return. Very close to dining, shopping & sightseeing. Nice room w 2 double beds, air cond& dish tv. Easy walking distance of lots of things to see & do.
This is more like a hostal than a hotel. Rooms are very small. Bathrooms are not what one expects....the shower water runs into the room if a towel is not placed on floor. The price is too high in comparison to very good hotels in the area. Restaurant is not too good. It is however very well situated and its staff is top notch.
