After the great experience and success of Casita Santa Ines (formerly Casa Mariposa Blanca) in downtown Cuernavaca we noted that most of our guests requested information on where to stay when visiting Mexico City. We could not wait and decided it was time to extend the route to the great city of Mexico, the old Tenochtitlan. Ayuntamiento 70 B&B is a charming restored Colonial-Californian home in the middle of the very sought after and historical neighborhood of Mexico City: Coyoacan. It is offering a most dedicated service to all our guests in a clean, organized and secure ambiance. Each room has its own bathroom, quality bedding and linens and each is decorated with attention to the colors and textures of Mexican handicraft. The property is spacious and has terraces, garden, patio, a large living room and an impressive open plan kitchen with dining area.
The "Azul" room is on second floor, has a double bed, own bathroom, large windows. Not a large room, but quite cozy.
Our Naranja room is also on the 2nd floor, with a double bed, own bathroom, two large windows.
Our Verde room has direct access to the back patio. If you go up the spiral staircase you will arrive to this lovely room full of light and ample settings.

Foe 3 years we lived near Coyoacan and each time we return to DF we stay in our old house. Because of our dear friend's illness we couldn't stay with her but, happily we found Ayuntamento 70! It is a lovely house 4 blocks from Francisco Soza, one of the most beautiful streets in the city. Our room was quite comfortable and MariCarmen (and her 2 hijas) made the most incredible breakfasts every morning! For someone wanting to stay in the Coyoacan/San Angel area this place really beats the Holiday Inn!!

This bed and breakfast is a hidden gem. We had a beautiful room that looked out onto a sunny courtyard, and both the room and the bathroom were decorated with fresh flowers. The house is colorfully decorated in a colonial style, and there are several living rooms for just sitting and relaxing. The food was also delicious. Right when we arrived, Maricarmen greeted us with an afternoon snack of fresh fruit, quesadillas, and guacamole. Each breakfast she made for us was plentiful and delicious. The B&B is also very well-located on a quiet street near the Viveros (worth checking out) and about 5 blocks from the center of Coyoacan. Since the B&B only recently opened, it doesn't have a big presence or reviews on TripAdvisor, but I'm sure it soon will. After my time there, I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Coyoacan!

I could not have been happier with my experience at Ayuntamiento 70. Easy to walk to from the metro, this b&b and its gardens are gorgeous. The best part of Ayuntamiento 70 is the kitchen. Not only is Maricarmen turning out amazing Mexican dishes all day long, but the room itself is beautiful and the whole family is willing to talk about Coyoacan or anything you please. The service was exceptional and it felt more like passing time with friends than service. I am so grateful for the morning driving tour through UNAM we were led on and that I found time in our trip for the splendours of Coyoacan.

My boyfriend and I decided to vacation in and around Mexico City this year, and we were blessed to discover this beautiful bed and breakfast for the final night of our trip. The owners were incredibly friendly and approachable, and definitely seemed dedicated to making our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Our visit felt as though we were visiting family rather than simply a bed and breakfast. Upon our arrival, we were welcomed warmly and invited into their beautiful, traditional Mexican-style kitchen and served hot, delicious homemade quesadillas and guacamole. Our room was meticulously decorated, and was clean and comfortable. We would highly recommend other travelers to Ayuntamiento 70, particularly those interested in Mexican culture and an incredibly hospitable, lovely environment. We couldn't have asked for any better.
