Chaya B&B

Why We Like It

One of the most stylish B&Bs in town, in a terrific location.

On the edge of Alameda Park in the NW corner of the Centro Histórico, Chaya B&B is located atop a multi-use building (a converted Art Deco home) with a mezcal bar, tattoo shop, yoga studio, and more, reflecting the historic neighborhood's emergence as a hotspot for artists and other creative types. Stylish, if spartan, rooms surround a lovely rooftop terrace with hammocks. "Chaya" is a chard-like green used in Yucatecan cuisine.

YOU SHOULD KNOW The hotel is on the 3rd floor and there is no elevator.


Rooms range from the snug 215 sq. ft. standard rooms to the 450 sq. ft. Master Suite.

The rooms are no smoking, but they face the large terrace where smoking is allowed. This is either a bonus for smokers who can do so just outside their rooms, or a problem for smoke-sensitive guests.

High-end bath amenities are by the independent Mexico City brand LoredAna.

Ask for help with your bags to make the 3-floor hike (climbing stairs can be a chore with the city's 7400-foot altitude).

Breakfasts are terrific, and a good time to get to know fellow guests. Two good restaurants, Cancino and Butcher & Sons, are in the same building.

Getting Around

The best way to get around Mexico City is via Uber or similar ride-share services, like Cabify and the by-women for-women Laúdrive.


The downtown Churrería El Moro (12-minute walk) is the original location of this popular churro outlet, with several types of hot chocolate. Vegans will love the burgers, pizzas, pastas, and even ceviche at VegAmo MX (7-minute walk).


El Bósforo (5-minute walk) is a cool mezcal bar with some very hard-to-find spirits. One of the oldest cantinas in the Centro, Cantina Tío Pepe (8-minute walk) offers affordable drinks in a space full of character (and characters).
