... China on our horizon, a small, civil ceremony in April made for a very lovely day. [:
And it was a beautiful day. [ 12-04-2014 ]
After breakfast at the hotel, (my dad ordered the same eggs dish twice! He loved it.) everyone was off to get ready for the big day.
I am so lucky that everything worked out. The Thursday before the ceremony was busy. We picked up our blood test results and my birth ...
My parents, sister, and cousin flew down to Puebla for the weekend.
Arriving Friday at 3pm, we were only able to squeeze out a quickie tour of Puebla's Zocalo, a meal of comida poblana, shopping at El Parian, mezcal at the hotel bar, and late night tacos on Friday.
Reflecting on what we did that weekend makes me remember how little we were able to see. Puebla is a great city with much to see, do, and eat. ...
... of scrubbing my face with mint bodywash when the water suddenly turns to a dribble. And then ceases completely. I'm shouting at Mario to get a bucket so I can wash the minty fresh soap out of my ******n eyes which I'm squeezing shut while trying not to shiver convulsively, when the water suddenly dribbles back on again. And then a full spray hits me in the face of freezing cold water and sends me yelping backwards. Ahh. The joys of hostels ;) Back to Day 5, we ...

Tried the Mole El Manchamanteles con pollo. The sauce tasted like pears with an intense sense following. The chicken was very tender. Enjoyed a Negra Modelo with my repast 225MP.

... Fran's boyfriend and I got together to make some Mexican food. Jessica and I made a giant bowl of guacamole from scratch, which turned out amazing. Jose and Fran made a massive platter of fajita chicken and veggies, while Fran's boyfriend made a spicy cheese dip. We all contributed to the drink supply.
We had about 10 Spaniards come over to partake in the feast. They absolutely loved the guacamole and cheese dip with tortilla ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Meson De Capuchinas Puebla
I hesitate to write this review because I want to keep the hotel to myself. But since I read other's reviews in planning a trip, I think it's only fair. Meson Sacristia De Capuchinas is a gem....a 16th century building with 21st century style.
Mesones Sacristia in Puebla, Mexico, is a delightful inn with personal service on par with top five star hotels. The restored courtyard-style building once served as an apartment house and now affords guests stylish, antique filled, privacy in one of the standard, Jr suite or master suites. We had a chance to see three of the rooms (one of each type) and each was unique and inviting in it's own way. Our romance package was divine, with pedals from dozens of roses strewn across the floor and arranged in a heart on the bed; a path of candles led from the door to the bed. It was picture perfect.
Great Restaurant at Mesones Sacristia!
We did not stay at the hotel but did eat lunch there February 2005. The meal was EXCELLENT! The touches were on the gourmet side for mexican cuisine. Ambience was colonial Mexican with a funky decorator touch. An example was the bar was designated with a sign that said "El Confesionario". Prices were less than we expected given the quality of the meal. Would definitely eat here again when in Puebla, Mexico.
My husband and I stayed at this unique hotel early in November 2004. It is located in a renovated colonial building close to restaurants and the shopping district. Almost all of the furnishings and decorative objects are antique and for sale. The pluses are the charming, funky ambiance and the friendly, accommodating staff. Unfortunately, the rooms are hot, stuffy and very noisy until late at night. Only three have outside windows (which open on a noisy street, but do let in some fresh air). Room # 8 is by far the largest and most attractive of the rooms. All other rooms have windows that open onto the interior courtyard (which houses a good restaurant/bar - another major source of noise) or have no windows at all! Also, closet space is limited, the plumbing is unreliable and the lighting is dim. If you like quirky charm, this is the place for you. If you prefer modern conveniences, eat a meal here, but stay at the Camino Real!
Private cooking classes & unique boutique hotel
We had an excellent time at Capuchinas for one week. We did a package that included cooking classes which turned out to be private with the head chef and translator! We could not afford cooking in France, so we found this at a great price and this was wonderful, people, course, food and hotel. A boutique hotel with a unique art collection and fountains/plants mixed into courtyard/entrance, and each room is different. Our package included breakfast to order, wow, and a day guided tour with Carlos, who is superb. You get to know the personable staff and stay in 300 year old rooms with eclectic furnishings and 20 ft ceilings.
Mexico at it's finest
Great little hotel, plenty of history (the building dates from the 1600s), with really personal service. As the other reviewers say, the staff are great and very helpful. Didn't even get annoyed when we woke them to let us in at 6am after a wedding reception...
Breakfasts are something else, all you can eat and they cook it all fresh for you, great hangover cure and handily served either in the restaurant or in your room.
Rooms are rustic, apparently most of the furniture is antique. Even the door locks are authentic, the keys are about 10 inches long!
My husband, brother, sister in law and I just returned for a wonderful trip to Puebla. The cooking classes taught by Alosono and inteterpreted in English by Marianna were excellent. The hotel, service and accomodations were wonderful. Puebla is town with much to see all the people were friendly and helpful. They all were patient with our minimal Spanish ability. Mariana is most helpful in helping to give suggetstions in your free time. We did some private tourning with Carlos ( recommended by Mariana) he was excellent and his English is excellent. The bus trip from Mexico City Airport was on a first class bus and took two hours.
This is a small, very nice hotel located about 5 minutes from the central plaza in Puebla. It is the sister hotel of another hotel a few blocks away. We stayed here in mid-2003 for three nights. There are maybe 6 or 7 rooms in the hotel, each one different and each one charming (but not "precious" or "cute"). What makes this place most enjoyable is its helpful and accomodating staff -- ask for something and it's yours. They will help with sight seeing, restaurants, transportation, or whatever you need to make your stay enjoyable. Rates include breakfast and newspapers (ingles or espanol), and you can walk to everywhere in Puebla from here. Rooms on the street are a bit noisier than others, as you would expect in Puebla, but not particularly so. Interior rooms are quiet. The restaurant is quite nice as well.
My sister and I just returned from a week at the Mesones Sacristía in Puebla. We visited local Indian sites and took cooking classes at the hotel. The package is offered on their website or you can make arrangements directly with the hotel ... This hotel is made up of two 17th century homes in the historic district of Puebla that have recently been converted into hotels of about 8 rooms each. I have never experienced such warm, personal attention as we received on this trip. All of the staff at the hotel was very attuned to our needs and desires. We arrived over two hours late the first night (11:30 pm) and they were waiting up for us. They went so far as to walk us to and from dinner in the evening. I do not think there is anything we could have asked for that would have been denied.The cooking classes were fantastic. We were given the opportunity to go to the market with the chef and experience fruits and chilis I had never seen before. We were allowed to select which dishes we would make in the class. After a morning of cooking, the food was served to us for lunch! For two days, the students consisted of my sister and I, but we were attended by two chefs and a translator. They seemed to be having as much fun as we were.I could not recommend this trip more highly.
