Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Casa Gonzalez Mexico City
A hotel for experienced travellers
We stayed in the Casa Gonzalez in February 2004 and found it a perfectly delightful small hotel, among the very best we've stayed in during a lifetime of travelling. It may not be for people who like the anonymous opulence of the big international hotels but we were charmed, first by the hospitality of Jorge Ortiz Moore and his staff, and secondly by our fellow travellers, an intrepid and interesting group of people whom we got to know over the delicious breakfasts served at communal tables. It may take a while for the water to heat in the older rooms (not in the newer ones) but the courtyard and gardens and kindness of the staff make up for such trivial inconveniences. English is spoken fluently but so is French and Italian. Casa Gonzalez will always be our first choice in Mexico City.
Hospitality is Second to None!
I stayed here, along with several other architecture students from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and the hospitality at Casa Gonzalez was supurb! It felt as though I were a member of the family, especially with the friendly staff and Jorge. Even when I needed help in finding prescription medication for my asthma, Jorge went and purchased my medication for me! I have to say, this was the most hospitable group of individuals I have had the joy of meeting. I will hopefully stay again soon!
Perfect Home Base for sightseeing in D.F.
I have stayed at the Casa Gonzalez twice; once alone, once with students I brought with me. Before heading off to San Miguel de Allende for a month of language studying, the Casa Gonzalez offered us an excellent home base for three days of sightseeing Mexico City's many historic tourist attractions. In one direction, it's an easy walk to Chapultapec Park with its museums, lake, castle, memorials, and amusement park. In the other direction, one can walk to the Zócalo, Cathedral, National Palace, Palacio Nacional de Bellas Artes, the Diego Rivera Museum next to historic Alameda Park, and of course the ruins of Tenóchtitlan with its beautiful museum. Also, there are cafes, fantastic restaurants, and even a convenience store nearby. The Casa Gonzalez staff is friendly, courteous, anxious to make the stay as enjoyable as possible. Meals are always great and the guests represent a broad mixture of nationalities and interests. The rooms are perfect; not opulent by any means, but comfortable, clean, and fairly priced.
The Casa Gonzalez offers a safe haven right in the middle of bustling Mexico City. A real bargain!
You'll Forget You're in Mexico City
A charming guest house that has been run by the same family for several generations. The current proprietor, Jorge Ortiz Moore, grew up here when his father ran the inn. He is charming, and very dedicated to making his guests feel at home. Very safe, very cozy grounds. Lovely dining room. The rooms vary in quality, but for this price and location, it's hard to complain. Reserve long in advance for the best rooms. Jorge is bilingual (Spanish and English). The rest of the staff speaks Spanish and little if any English.
Casa Gonzalez is a great place to stay. The location is in or near the Zona Rosa just a few blocks away from outdoor cafes, bars and shopping.
My wife and I stayed there in June 2003 and enjoyed the converted mansion with hardwood floors, inner courtyard, shared dining and living room, variety of foreign guests, and traditional rooms with skeleton keys for access. There's nothing modern about it but it's still very cozy and worth the $30-$40 per night rooms. Great experience!
Great location - nice place
Stayed for three nites recently. Right across from British Embassy. Semmed very safe (maybe extra security for war protests). Charming accomodations especially for price. Showres soemtimes don't heat. No phones in room. But its a neat place to get around Mexico City from. Esay 4 block walk to Metro thru Zona Rosa on pedestrian only street.We spent one nite at JW Marriott and think we liked Cas Gonzalez better at 1/4 the price.
Made me feel at home
I stayed at Casa Gonzalez in January 1998 for a week. I was traveling alone and stayed for a couple of days on the ground level and I could hear the street noise at night. For the rest of the week, however, I stayed in a lovely single on the second floor. The Gonzalezes are warm, friendly hosts and made me feel very welcome. I had breakfast there most mornings, which were wonderful home-cooked meals. I spent about $25 a night. Meals are extra. Be prepared for makeshift showers in the rooms and space heaters that don't warm up the room entirely during the winter.
Casa Gonzalez, 69 Rio Sena, Sept 02 visit
Affordable, $30 for, two twin beds. I unexpectedly in Mexico City for the weekend, a single women alone. Don't expect much social etiquette from the staff or much in the way of service either. No one was at the desk and the women who checked me in was a bit hostile or inconsiderate. The room was not my taste, but was clean and acceptable for a short stay. My room was near the exit, so it was difficult to nap; the sound of the slamming door when someone entered or exited was jolting. One of the beds needed a new mattress and I think they used outdoor carpeting, but the grounds and location are lovely. It was easy for me to get to the Museums, Zocalo, and the park. Although I would have like to, I did not have a meal at the Casa, you need reservations. The dining area was pleasant and the food smelled great. If this Inn suits your budget and your location standards I recommend it, but try to select your room. I think I might have been given the worse one in the house, being I arrived without a reservations and for just one night stay. Have a pleasant trip.
When I was 15 (38 years ago) my Spanish teacher, Mrs Knight, took a group of us to Mexico City for 3 weeks. We stayed at Casa Gonzalez. Jorge Gonzalez was the proprietor at that time. I don't know if he's still alive but he and his family were GREAT. The hospitality was excellent. The food was "to die for" as was the evening's Cocoa parties. If I ever travel to Mexico City again, you can bet I will be staying at Casa Gonzalez. You can't go wrong staying there.

Stayed there a year ago upon a friend's recommendation.
Small room, but comfortable and clean for about $25/night - great value!!!

... the crowd of onlookers.. They were filming what looked like a day of the dead party and a helicopter kept flying in...action. I skirted the action and headed to the cathedral which was huge and had a powerful feeling but there was a service on so I only took a quick look since it is considered impolite to interrupt a service but any other time is fine to look around. It is built over an pyramid and the church and square are built out of the pyramid that they leveled down to 6 feet. There ...
... the heavy hail for Tammy typing up the blog, until the hail got so bad she realized there was no way Tammy could type that fast and also no one was in the room with her. Prior to heading out for the evening I (Wade) was able to get one last nap on my Frozen themed bed that was graciously loaned to me by Regina (I know what you're thinking and no, I did not sing "Let It Go" every night before bed). We then headed out ...

We order some delicious chicken wings and stay for the Australia match. Unfortunately the Aussies went down 3-1. I'm happy to say that Hinesh and I weren't the only ones cheering for the Socceroos, some locals joined us in celebrating Tim Cahill's brilliant header.

... huge lines and I wasn't keen anymore and Bobbie didn't want to go by herself and then it started to rain. So feeling a little defeated we got our stuff and left. I wouldn't say that six flags sucks, if we got the flash pass or VIP pass and there weren't so many screaming kids, we would have had a good day. Some of the rides are completely ridiculous and there are so many to choose from. That night we had a quiet night due to being tired from the last few big days with early ...
