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.

Small room, but comfortable and clean for about $25/night - great value!!!

... had stumbled upon another march! Marching along Reforma, the iconic main road that runs through the park, were many thousands waving red flags. We didn't know what the march was about as such but can only assume that it was related to the upcoming municipal elections. There were lots of marching bands and drum groups pounding out inspiring, energetic rhythms. Ring leaders with megaphones were reminding the marchers of why they were there and telling the world what the ...
... rookie point of view, I would describe it as a mixture between opera, theatre and a concert. We got to see the nativity play, which draw us back to Christmas. The location was breathtaking but the setting different than expected. There were only around 100 chairs as we arrived – outside (!!). Steffi and me dressed adequately for a German theatre, meaning dress and a short blouse, but no jacket. Fortunately, the play was just so diverse ...
... Museum this morning! (The guy was so nice, once he found out that Vanessa and I were planning a trip to the pyramids on Sunday, he gave Vanessa' mother a card with his name on it and a guaranteed rate to get us there and back in 5 hours! And I don't care who you are or what you think about Mexico, this place knows how to showcase its culture...
Anyway, Vanessa was already long gone for work by the time I woke up ...
... took off shopping. She returned disappointed the garment she was hoping to buy had disappeared and she couldn't find anything else. While walking back to the hotel, there was another protest rally going on through the Main Street, there were cops everywhere, dressed in riot gear with their big plastic riot shields, they had streets blocked off and people were everywhere. Once back at the hotel we chilled out in the room until it was time to get ready for dinner. We decided that ...
... quoted the scripture at the beginning of this email and proceeded to "equip" me for "every good work". Yep, SHE was a fabulous dancer! And I've never met a sister who could lead so well! Yeah I did dance with a couple of brothers, but she was better ;-)
Well, that's it for now. Thank you all for your emails, and sorry that I fall behind in responding to them!
A big hug to you all and may Jehovah continue blessing you in your life and your service! ...
