... were covered in beautiful colorful paintings. Blue and red mostly. Then we headed around the corner to a local artesan place. We had a new guide show us different things such as the tree Agarve ( unsure how to spell it) which is used to make a drink called Mezcal. Similar to tequila but stronger and you sip it.,not shot it. It's leaves are also used for paper. The guide peeled the flesh from the middle and wrote on it with a pen to show us how it was used. He then pulled the tip of ...

So within 10 minutes there was another fellow out the front to take us to Chapultepec park. During the drive i took a few photos of guys that sell stuff at the traffic lights, just like dudes that wash windows at traffic lights in mexico they sell all kinds of stuff, when the lights go red they walk out into the traffic holding up their ...
... were all very delicious. I didn't get to see much of the city though I did see something that arrested me. I had gotten to see a life size statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe. It was a very amazing view to see and how old it was too. I had spent the rest of the day shopping and left to Houston in the ...
... see a spectacular tile mural on the outside wall of Teatro de Los Insurgentes or in English, the Theatre on Insurgentes Avenue. The detail was beautiful and it amazes me how they put this together. Its like one big billion piece jig-saw puzzle. When they started making this, imagine sorting and trying to find the specific colour for a spot and then also making sure you put the tile in the right position. Incredible.

Historical Traveler Reviews Casa de la Condesa Mexico City
Wonderful Stay in Mexican Boutique Hotel
Since I arrived I felt at home at Casa de la Condesa. I was pleasantly surprised of how helpful and polite the personnel at the hotel was. They always got me a cab when I needed one, and they got everything I asked for.
The junior suite I stayed at was large and confortable. I really liked the hamock on the balcony while I enjoyed the lovely view of the park with the fountain in front of the hotel.
It is really easy to catch the Turibus. Itīs only one block away!
I would definitely recommend this hotel for your future stays in Mexico City!
Dirty, no parking, small
I somehow ended up at this hotel and they put me in a room smaller than a normal closet, I asked to change and had to pay $30 a night extra for an other room. This room was dirty, no clock, no air conditioning, no remote control. It was a street view room and the kids played soccor outside till 3am and were loud. Then at 8am they were knocking down a building next door and were extremely loud. The staff was unhelpful.
Love Casa de la Condesa
The hotel was great. I must say the wireless connection is the best I found while in Mexico. I liked it a lot because it is situated in a very nice part of Mexico City where you can walk around safely. The staff is really helpful. The prices are affordable also. I surely will go back to Casa de la Condesa when I visit Mexico again.
I'm glad that so many people have had pleasant stays in this hotel. I for one, will not be returning. My stays in Mexico City are frequently long, so I was looking forward to being in a more home-like atmosphere for a reasonable price. I work for a non-profit, so I'm always looking for ways to save money without sacrificing functionality. After reading the reviews of Casa de la Condesa, I was optimistic that it would be a deal that I could live with. But my room absolutely reeked of smoke, and as an asthmatic, I didn't get a bit of sleep the nights I was there.
We ended up at this hotel because we had originally made reservations at the sister hotel called Casa de la Condesa Refora but they misplanned and we got shipped off to this place. It is in the Colonia Roma which is a nice place in town. It was a bit of a fiasco from the beginning but overall, the hotel is clean though don't count on any fans in the summer or heaters in the winter. We repeatedly asked for one and then were promised we'd get one but then they never got us one during our stay and there was no chance of opening wndows because of mosquitoes. It is about 5-6 bocks from the nearest metro but is is only a block and a half away from the Casa Lamm where the Turibus stops every half hour. Overall, good, but the staff and their mix-ups made us not want to return. Hopefully, it won't be the same for everyone else.
I was pleasantly surprised by this Hotel as I found it by accident. The rooms were just right for me, not too small and perfect for my needs. I arrived late at night and was greeted by a desk clerk that was knowledgeable and alert. I was able to order room service as well which was nice at a late hour.
Awesome place to stay
I travel to Mexico about 10 to 15 times a year and I always stay at the Casa de la Condesa... Why? It's clean, safe and very quiet. The staff is outstanding and bends over backwards for you no matter what you need. And best of all the rates are great!!!!! They also have hammocks which most nicer hotels do not see fit for but I love the touch even though I rarley have the time to use them.. The location is very central, something to consider when you are taking taxis all over the place. Anyway check this place out, I would not consider another hotel/suite in Mexico City.
Very nice and comfortable
My trip to Mexico city was excellent, and it all began at the hotel. Hospitality was great, they offered me eveything I needed. The kitchnette was very useful as I was traveling with my kids. Breakfast was very nice, and where the hotel is situated is excelent. I could just walk out of the hotel, and there were alot of restaurants and a big park. I would definetly recomend you stay there.
Very nice suite and excelent service
Loved the typical mexican decor. The personnel at the desk were extremely attentive and even game me an upgrade !! I loved to stay in a suite overlooking the plaza with a fountain in my hammock where I read my book and dozed off.
I recommend this hotel extensively !
Clean, Quiet ... but small.
I was there for three nights, because of a family emergency, so price and availability were paramount for me at that moment, since I booked my trip less than 12 hours before arriving there. It was clean, affordable and quiet, but extremely small ... just enough space for a twin bed, a small tv set and a tiny night desk. I'd love to know who designed the bathroom, 'cause the shower head pointed directly to the door, so every shower came with an embedded "lake", if you know what I mean. Other than that, for the price, great place to sleep over.
