Owners, Jorge and Craig, have kept this bnb top of the pops for SO MANY years that it has become an iconic benchmark in hospitality and affection. The vibe is artistic, cultured, and down-to-earth and there is strong GLBTi edge to their clientele . Their nightly Happy Hour for guests is convivial and tasteful. And they even have their own doctor. Alex and Victor's team of whippersnappers run The Red Tree front desk 24/7. They are friendly, helpful, and exceptionally up-to-date on everything!
Patio 77 owners, Diego and Alan, really know about design AND hospitality. This modern and noble renovation of a colonial mansion is the masterpiece of Alan Favero -Interiors Genius & Head Curator at Taller Luum . (We assure you it is enough to make Kelly Wearstler weep in cosmopolitan envy). The friendly, personalized atmosphere gives it the feel of a home away from home, BUT the services and attention to detail are 5 star hotel. Au fait....ils parlent français magniquement !!
Casa Comtesse is a supremely elegant renovation of clean, modern 40's mansion. We love the fact it is close to public transport, but is still very quiet. Owner Thomas Flechel, and head of Front Desk, Alexander, like to serve mezcal as a welcome for their guests and have an extensive Mexican art collection on display at the house, as well as special in-house gallery events.
Casa Goliana is a very discreet, brilliantly located, boutique hotel with excellent concierge services. The hotel resides within a gorgeous , light-filled colonial mansion which means there are just a handful exclusive suites on offer here. Their staff really do pay attention to your every need , which, in a complicated city like this, makes a world of difference to your stay .
Andrea, and her French husband William, opened this beautiful renovation of a colonial home with the help of the famous starchitect & interior design team :Chic-by-Accident and Ludwig Godefroy. if design touches matter to you then do check out Casa Dovela. It is quiet, and sumptuous. Bien sûr, ils parlent français aussi!!
Las Alcobas is one of the few boutique hotels offering truly 5 star service and stupendously divine interior design. Concierges Leo and Aron are young stars, who are forward thinking and never run out of energy . As a step away from the larger hotels guests are always well-travelled and cosmopolitan
