The staff had been very helpful and comforting before I ever left for Mexico City. I was alone, knowing little Spanish, a short trip into a different country for the first time. They guided me and put me more at ease before I ever met them. Going through the big iron gate and entering inside I imagined entering a secret...

El Patio 77 was recommended to my wife and I for our honeymoon. This place has great style- big rooms, big windows, antique and modern furniture, very eco-conscious (using grey water for the toilets, motion sensor lights in the common areas), and the breakfast is simple, but delicious, with fresh juices/fruit, local ingredients, and coffee. It's also close to El...

We stayed three nights last week and on the whole really enjoyed El Patio 77. I would have to agree with the mosquito issue and am glad to hear it is being looked into. The city cools down at night and the area is quiet so sleeping with the windows open seemed logical, but the mosquitoes were relentless. that said,...

We generally enjoyed our stay at El patio 77. It was fun staying in an older restored home of a wealthy family in what today has become a working class neighborhood, away from all the tumult and commotion of the Centro. We enjoyed the high ceilings, techos de bóveda, large windows, stately staircases, and art and artistry all around us....

As other reviewers have noted, el patio 77 is quiet, beautifully designed, and spacious to say the least. However, the neighborhood was a bit secluded from many tourist spots and dining options. Be prepared generally for very long walks or having to depend on taxis and taking the metro when going out at night. Mezzo mezzo was an exception however...

The environmentally aware aspect of El Patio was the reason for us choosing to stay there. But what we hadn't anticipated was the beauty of the building-photos cannot convey how spectacular El Patio is. In addition all the staff were professional and helpful. We were very appreciative that they were able to accomodate us as vegans with a really great...

Finding this eco B&B (a rarity in DF) can be a bit of a challenge. However, after staying there a couple of days it was easy to orient the cab driver to it. With no signage the building looks like other stately mansions in this quiet neighborhood except that this one has been beautifully restored. I can feel that this...
