Great service great location

Nov 12th, 2019

Stayed 6 nights. Service is great. Continental Breakfast with home baked bread and fresh fruit, of course coffee. They are good. We ordered bacon and egg and quesadillas etc a few mornings in addition. The room is large and comfortable. So is the bath room. Every bedroom has a painting(s) of Rolando Rajas. Fantastic. Though the hotel is on the major street leading to the city center, it was quiet. Location is convenient, about 6 blocks from the city center. If you want to stay closer to the center, hotel Catrina de Alcalá is the choice. It’s less than a block from the center. We enjoyed our stay very much. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Love at first night

Nice location and beautiful room. We had a balcony patio that was very romantic if you know what I mean. At night we could be all alone. Very big. Overall wonderful stay, we would go back. Good choice. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

We enjoyed our 7 day stay

Aug 16th, 2019

Originally booked at their sister hotel La Catrina de Alcala, see our recent review of that hotel, offered this hotel since their room was totally unacceptable. We had the Verde room which offered light and fresh air ventilation as well as AC. The room is large but needs occasional chairs to relax and read in. All they offer is the armless desk chair. The room offers two shutter doors overlooking the covered courtyard and one shutter door to the roof terrace which is shared with one other room. The terrace had plenty of seating to enjoy the views and the delightful climate. We never used the AC for cooling, just air and left the shutter open to the terrace everynight. The large bathroom offers a large walkin shower and single lavatory but in a nicely sized counter. Breakfast is free if you do the continental but is very enjoyable. It includes fresh fruit or juice, sweet bread or toast coffee. Other options are avaiable. The staff was friendly and accomodating and made us feel at home. We concur with a previous reviewer that it is not a boutique hotel but a very nice up-scale small inn in a lovely old building. We would stay with them again and ask for the same room. Some rooms are small and rather dark with only one window so reserve the green room, red room or blue room only. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Not a four star boutique hotel

Jan 7th, 2019

This is a three star bed & breakfast establishment in a rather lovely building. There is little in the way of hotel services. Nice people. Do not accept the small non-window rooms, they are claustrophobic. Any noise in the hotel is transmitted through the thin wooden shutter into the room. Well placed, 5 minute walk up the gentle hill from most of the noise of the town. Take you ear plugs! Some very enthusiastic bell ringers in the church opposite. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Delightful Boutique Hotel in Great Location

Nov 7th, 2018

Casa Catrina is in an old building on a quiet street within walking distance of many of the attractions of the old town-- Santa Domingo Basilica, the Zocalo and cathedral, the markets, and many fine restaurants. The first impression upon walking into the lobby is this is what old Mexico must have looked like two centuries ago; the lobby is a large open space, with an extended skylight overhead. The staff decorates the lobby appropriately for the season, and when we were there, for Dia de Muertos, it was filled with icons of that time (skeletons, an offrenda, and the like). The six guest rooms were redecorated in the recent past and are quite comfortable. We occupied the Blue Room, which is tastefully decorated, featuring a blue scheme. It is a very large room, with a modern bathroom that still somehow feels right for a boutique hotel. The room has two windows that open on the street, and if this were a busy street that might be a problem, but it isn't; you'll sleep soundly on the comfortable king sized bed. During the daytime during Dia de Muertos family parades pass by regularly, with their own bands, and that's delightful. These little parades are small units of 50 or so adults and kids, all decked out in Dia de Muertos painted faces and and costumes, with a band behind each group, on their way down to the street to the Zocalo, which is the center of activities. The little kids that pass by the room's two windows are utterly charming. The hotel serves breakfast (included), and it can be very elaborate, but it will always include fresh fruit, breads, juices, etc. Various egg dishes, crepes, and so on are available and will be skillfully cooked on request. Ingredients are very fresh and first rate, The staff are very friendly, and one of the servers at breakfast, Innocenti, is a charming character who has been there for years. He speaks no English, but he's eager to serve and somehow makes himself understood, even to us, with almost no Spanish. In summary, this is a delightful little hotel, and we'll be back.
