Once you step into Coyoacán (“Land of the Coyotes”) you'll find picturesque parks and cantinas that will transport you back to the colonial era thanks to the brick and stone details of the area. Iconic writers such as Trotsky and great painters like Frida Kahlo seeked refuge and inspiration in this area, and you can see the unique spirit of this neighborhood reflected in its colorful market where nieves, sopes and all kinds of traditional 'antojitos' are a must try. Restaurants and cafés throughout its peaceful paved streets contain traditional but unique murals and decorations, where one can enjoy a mezcal at noon or the best churros with a cup of coffee.
This visit was almost an afterthought but so glad we found time to stop here. The building itself is a showstopper! Wow! The collection inside was amazng- as Riviera intended, it certainly is a gift to the Mexian people.

"Well worth seeing."
reviewed 1 week ago by KeithinBC
Well worth the trip out to see it. Frida was an amazing woman who endured a lot of agony; she turned her body brace into art. As well as being a great artist, she had character in spades. Yes, she was a communist, but one simply has to recognize the strength, bravery and creativeness of that incredible woman.
If you have read about Frida Kahlo's life you probably know about Leon Trotsky. This little socialist red house is near the blue house and there are no Ines and costs just 70 peso to get in.
I had already read the long storied history of this Soviet revolutionist, so I just did a walk thru seeing the machine gun...
We wanted to go to the football match here but there was so many other things we wanted to do and see. Had to stop here and get a picture though. Our Uber driver was very accommodating and stopped for us to take a picture. We are huge NFL fans. It would be so much fun to go to an...
Only two blocks from our guesthouse and on the way back from the town, we popped in. A nice green oasis in a decidedly tree lined neighborhood, there is lots to see and you could even by a plant or two.
I’m this is the place where I bring my family and friends when I want to have an perfect diner, good meat, excellent service, the martines and wine list are extremely good.
I have been to a lot of restaurants in Mexico. This one is the one which I return to over and over again.

The most delicious tostados and everything else! We were honored to have discovered this absolute gem! Ranks among my favorite EVER restaurants after over 50 yrs of travel and tasting.

We were welcomed by the owner who helpfully guided us through the menu. At his suggestion, my wife and I shared the Timpana and the turkey sandwich. All was excellent ... like the best of home-cooking.

I had traveled on a business trip to Mexico City during November 2019. I stayed for 15 days. I absolutely liked the place. Good points - Clean rooms, large rooms, Good service by the staff, courteous and prompt staff, had a corporate deal with the hotel which included 3 pieces of laundry every day which was an excellent deal and...
Rough, old towels.
Fairly new, clean, good service at the front desk. Young staff. No restaurant but free continental breakfast is good with no strings attached. WiFi was sometimes difficult to connect to.
Is a very basic hotel, simple. The room was big, the bed too old.
Prepare to hear what's happening in the next room.
The bathtub was stuck.
You better eat outside the hotel, since the food is not good at all.
I stayed here for one night. It was very comfortable and clean. The bed was big. The staff did not speak English at all, but if you know some Spanish, it will be fine. It is close to the blue line Tasquena metro station.

Sense of calm. No false elegance. Friendly and casual. Perfect Location. Neat courtyard breakfast to order. Quaint bell to ring for entry. Sealed off from quiet street.
