    Home Sweet Home in the Zona Rosa

    by

    We stayed at Casa Gonzales for five nights in May, 2008. At first, the three of us were placed in Room #27, with a double bed and a pull-out sofa bed. I got the sofa "bed", which actually turned out to be an ancient, worn-out mattress that was barely an inch thick placed atop metal poles that dug into my back so badly I could hardly move the next day. If you're staying at Casa Gonzales, DO NOT accept a room with sofa beds!

    Luckily, the next day we were able to move to a room with three single beds (Room #7), and I slept comfortably for the rest of our stay. The hotel is made of three or four houses that have been combined and now all share a central courtyard. Some of the buildings have lovely common rooms filled with books, and you can sit down there and read even if you're in a different building. There is internet in the lobby for thirty pesos ($3 US/CAD) per hour, as well as a large bookshelf. In the lobby outside the dining room there are straw hats for guests to use when the sun comes out. The staff are friendly but they don't all speak English, so brush up on your Spanish before you go!

    Breakfast in the beautiful dining room at a large shared table was one of the highlights of our stay. The continental breakfast is 35 pesos and includes tea, coffee or hot chocolate, fresh fruit, bread and jam. For another 35 pesos you can upgrade to a full breakfast with a hot dish such as eggs, pancakes, french toast, chilaquiles or enchiladas. Lunch and dinner are served but you have to reserve in advance.

    Unique Quality: One unique feature of the hotel is that one of the houses used to be owned by a famous Mexican movie star. Ask at the desk for details!

    Directions: Two blocks off Reforma, at the same corner as the British Embassy.

BARATO Y MUY BUENO EN DF

by mchris about CASA GONZALEZ

Les recomiendo totalmente este Hotel en el DF. Es un hotel pero de caracter familiar, un poco como un b&b. Esta en la Calle Rio Sena, justo en frente de la embajada del reino Unido lo que significa vigilancia policial las 24 horas del dia. Esta a un paso de la Av. de la Reforma. Hay varios tipos de habitaciones, desde unas pequeñitas por unos 400 pesos (35 euros aprox.) hasta otras más grandes por 500/550 pesos. El deasyuno, no esta incluido, hay dos tipos el sencillo y el completo (incuye huevos al gusto). Es muy recomendable, compartes mesas con otros viajeros en un comedor precioso.

Todo el personal es muy amable, sin duda volvere alli en mi proxima visita al DF. Tienes una sala/cafeteria con ordendores para conectarte a internet.
Sirven comidas y cenas.
Las habitaciones no tienen TV,ni caja fuerte, ni minibar.

Old-Fashioned Mexican

by Jetgirly about Fonda el Refugio

We ate at Fonda el Refugio in May, 2008. We arrived in the city around 9:00 pm, and our hotel (Casa Gonzales) recommend it as a good choice within walking distance. We set out, and about fifteen minutes later we found ourselves at this small, candlelit eatery that was definitely more posh than we had expected. This is an upscale restaurant popular with business people and those who work at the many embassies and consulates nearby. Dishes are served as described- if you order chiles rellenos you will get two chiles rellenos, and if you want side dishes you have to order them seperately.

Our food was good, but not great. I had much better chiles rellenos in Sayulita (at a restaurant called... wait for it... Chile Relleno) for a fraction of the price. The enchiladas also were not standouts. Eat at Fonda el Refugio to impress visiting customers or diplomats, not to get delicious food at a reasonable price.

budget hotels nearest La Villa de Guadalupe

by maryval

Hello there! My husband and I are planning to go to Mexico City in late May up to early June this year. Need help on budget hotels or B & B Inns. Our requirements are simple, clean double-bed room with ensuite bathroom and airconditioning, preferably with internet facilities and English-speaking staff. Nearness to attractions especially the Basilica of Guadalupe will be added bonus. Any help you can give me will be much appreciated.
Also, what can we expect about the weather? ...clothing requirements?
is there any place I can get detailed map of the Basilica?
Muchas gracias in advance.

Please define more specifically what you mean by "budget hotels". Specifically, what's the maximum per day that you're willing to spend?

Hi RMDW,

THANKS FOR RESPONSE TO MY QUERY. Budget hotels about US$60/day. single room, double occupancy. Wouldn't want to splurge on hotel rooms since we will be out most of the day anyway. hope you can help us here. I was informed that Casa Gonzales, The Red Tree House, Hotel Gillow are good candidates. But they are in the $80.00/day rate. Any other suggestions please?
thankas again. Maryval
