Fodor's Review

The rooms in this restored colonial mansion two blocks west of the zócalo have unique, homey touches; in some rooms it's carved wooden headboards, in others wrought-iron or hammered tin ones. All the rooms wrap around an adorable courtyard with a flower-filled fountain; surrounding it are tables topped with lacy umbrellas. Chicken mole and fish fillets steamed in a mezcal sauce top the list of favorites at the Restaurante Asunción ($–$$).

Inner City Oasis

Spent 2 nights here recently. Rooms are well appointed, although room facing the street tend to be noisy. Rooms in back are not. Front desk staff was very helpful, including getting a taxi for an early morning flight. Close to the zoacalo, many restaurants, galleries, museums and ATMs. Small property with excellent service.

modern neo-colonial comfort

great location, 2 blocks from the zocalo, very clean, comfortable rooms, and a wonderful restaurant, plus various sitting/lounge areas, would definitely stay there again

beautiful and charming on the city's edge

the kindness and quiet pride of the staff here, as well as the authentic mexican decor and artfuls detail made this a lovely, clean place to stay. inside the hotel all was quiet--the courtyard is especially nice; the street outside will have traffic, depending on time of day. for an in-town hotel, this is a fine choice.
