La Casita del Patio Verde
Ranked #66 of 166 Mexico City B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 December 2015

My husband and I were making a return trip to visit our daughter. We had stayed at La Casita a year ago and were pleased with our experience. We booked the king room for our current visit.
Arriving late at night, we were shown to a twin room. We spent a sleepless night (in the cold: no heat) and thought we could correct the problem in the morning. The only staff available was a Spanish-speaking maid. Our daughter and son-in-law made numerous calls to the owner, with no reponse.
We had pre-payed about $260 for our reservation. The twin room we were given was listed at $85.
We left La Casita for another hotel that morning.
Our daughter has been trying without success to reach the owner. He returned the call once, saying he'd get back to her. We were asking for a refund. He has continued to be unreachable.
Being ripped off is our one memory of this B & B.

We are really sorry about the confusion on the rooms, but we are certain that we recieved from booking.com that that you reserved our smallest room. After 2 nights we where offering you and your husband for the other 5 nights to stay with us at our medium rooms but couldn´t reach you at the house and your son in law just told a person from the staff that we you where leaving. Unfortunately they did call me from the house when you where taking the decision of leaving the place and I didn´t answer and I apologize for that, since this is something that almost never happens. I called later and you where already gone, and your room left empty for the next 5 nights.

We where offering your daughter that we could compensate you (aldought we recieved the reservation from booking.com) with 2 free nights for the confusion and she never contacted me after that. She can Email me and I can answer her throught the Email to have everything written, secure and confirmed.

Again we are really sorry for the confusion.

Let me know if you need anything else and you can contact us at any time, if not by phone, you can write us an Email.

Thank you and Best Regards.

After an overnight bus ride and an early morning visit to Teotihuacán, arriving to La Casita del Patio Verde was a huge relief. This quaint hotel/b&b offers 2 bedrooms next to each other on the second floor of a very charming home, and one private cabana separate from the house facing a well-kept patio and garden. The rooms are tastefully decorated, the bed is comfortable, and the bathroom is impeccable. I never had any issues with the wifi.

The Santa Catarina neighborhood is really cute and it's worth a walk around!

During our stay we were the only occupants, so I can't speak to the potential noise level with the adjoining wall between the hotel's two available bedrooms. While the hotel is located in a quiet, residential part of Coyoacán, I will say that light sleepers should expect to hear

La Casita del Patio Verde really is escondida in Callejon Escondida, and I'm assuming your cab driver, like ours, has never heard of this little residential alleyway. Tell your taxi/uber driver that it is a casa located in Santa Catarina, Coyoacán entre Calle Aguacate y Calle Dulce Olivia.

The location is in Zone 6 which is far from the city center and airport. Never accept a taxi driver that's using a meter if you're a tourist because it turned out almost double the price of what we paid a taxi driver who agreed to a fixed amount because traffic in Mexico City can be horrendous. It's not centrally located for general sightseeing but if you're set on visiting the Frida Kahlo museum, it's not very far. The neighborhood has charming streets to walk along, although the pavements were dilapidated... but there was a nice collection of houses/mansions around. It appears to be an upper end Mexican neighborhood.

We stayed in a nicely decorated room inside the main part of the house. The only downside was that you could hear everything in the house - conversations, noise, etc. even from the room adjacent and from the innkeeper walking above. It's a cute, sweet house with a nice breakfast nook and garden. The bathroom could do with an update - especially the shower - in terms of water temperature and pressure. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was filling. In hindsight, though, it would have been better to have the private bedroom that's detached from the main house for more privacy but that comes at a higher price. It's probably best you just make a day trip into this neighborhood and return back to central Mexico city.

Also, the innkeeper is very accommodating but you'll need to be able to speak Spanish as she didn't speak any English.

Room Tip: Choose the detached room from the main house for privacy so you don't hear everything else.

So glad we stayed here, such a beautiful and relaxing B&B! The property has 3 rooms, we stayed in El cuarto Del Arbol (the only room with a King bed). Be advised taxi drivers have a hard time finding this place, make sure you have your gps on you!
We stayed here for a week, every morning we had something different for breakfast. Location is great! Walking distance from the main square in Coyoacan.They also offer what is called a Travelers package, which includes pick up and drop off from the airport, private tour guide to all the main attractons.We had a great tour guide Maria De Los Angeles, very knowledgable, nice and a safe driver. Driving in Mexico city is a little crazy. Mexico City is a beautiful place with a lot of history, with many places to stay. La casita is a great location if you don't want to be around the busy life of downtown. I fell in love with Mexico City and La Casita!

La Casita del Patio Verde is located in one of the most beautiful colonias in Mexico City and within easy walking distance to Frida Kahlo's La Casa Azul. It's a charming B&B with a garden back yard and was hosted by Anna during our stay. Anna prepared varied fabulous breakfasts each morning and attended to our housekeeping needs. The neighborhood is upscale and full of different cafes, bakeries, and even a chocolatier, as well as a beautiful park. Just walking through it is a delightful experience as each home is unique with many old mansions lovingly restored. I hope to visit Coyoacan again and would gladly stay here.

Room Tip: There aren't any bad rooms.
