Me quedé en el hotel por 4 noches! Todo fue muy bueno, la localizacion es muy buena por estar en un ambiente tranquilo y cercano de el MetroBus y de Supermercado y restaurantes. El equipo de el Hotel es muy simpatico y estaba siempre pronta a atenderme. Para el desayuno no hay muchas opiciones pero lo que hay es muy rico! El cuarto es muy limpio y el baño es nuevo y bueno. A mi me gusto mucho y yo volveria con placer a quedarme alla!
We decided to stay in this beautiful B & B in Mexico City because of the rich colonial history. I had seen pictures of it online, and always wanted to stay there. Well, the pictures that are posted online, couldn't do it justice! What an amazing place! Our room was beautiful, clean, and had an awesome view of the garden. The ladies that are there to help, are wonderful and friendly! Would stay there again in a heartbeat! Oh, and did I mention that the breakfasts are divine as well?
El servicio del personal es fantástico, siempre muy cordial y atentos a resolver las necesidades de los huéspedes. Las habitaciones son muy cómodas y funcionales, dándole la privacidad y el confort que necesitas, y la ubicación es excelente pues hay muchos sitios cercanos al B&B que te permiten moverte sin necesidad de un auto. La comida del desayuno también es muy rica!!
So, I wanted to return to Mexico city after 17 years and show it to my wife, and Patio 77 was recommended by my cousin, who lives there. Sometimes you choose a place to stay that just defines the entire trip, and this was one of those times: wonderful, helpful staff, an unbelievably tranquil and well renovated building, and a sense of style and comfort that is just hard to buy. The location in old Mexico City has a wonderful mix of classic elegance and modern hustle and bustle: you're right on the Metro for buses and trains but you can also easily walk to Reforma and all the sights of the city (why not spend your first day wandering to Chapultepec castle?) But most of all the staff were wonderful. Helping us with our rubbish spanish, bringing us fresh, eye-opening, perfectly prepared breakfast, and even telling us where we can get a decent pair of cowboy boots. I was always in love with La Ciudad de Mexico, but el Patio 77 means I'll be going back every few months. This place is almost too nice, for serious. PS it's hard to cover everything, but even the art on the walls there became a sort of visual companion for our stay. Just beautiful!
I have been at Dakota B&B twice and will continue doing so when in Mexico City. Perfect and safe location, immaculate home and a fantastic host (Max), always informed of what's going on in the mega-city and willing to provide sound advice. For those of us who travel all the time, having a place where you are independent but still feel at home, is a welcomed experience. Breakfast is good, space is tranquil and you are in a very convenient part of the city from where you can move around easily. Plenty of restaurants and public transportation in the immediate vicinity. Very fair price.
Mi agradecimiento y felicitación al equipo administrativo de Dakota Bed & Breakfast, que durante nuestra estancia en la ciudad de México DF nos permitió hospedarnos en un ambiente acogedor, limpio y con excelente atención. Mi más alta recomendación si de hospedaje se trata en la ciudad de México.
Endroit à recommander. Propriétaires très recevants et courtois. Gracias Mauricio! Service impeccable. Très propre, matelas confortable, grande pièce. Cour intérieure. Accès facile au Métrobus (également au métro et au bus) . Quartier sécuritaire, près des services et du parc Hundido. Possibilité d'un taxi privé à partir du B & B. Déjeuners TRES bons inclus.
This is such a cozy nice and clean bed & breakfast. The location is fantastic just 2 blocks from all restaurants and cafes and the street is located is very calm. Ask for the "huevos a la mexicana" dish..delicious.. we will be back! highly recommended.
When traveling in Mexico I often start and end my trips in Mexico City. The Dakota B and B has always been the perfect place to stay while I'm there. I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Dakota again and want to share my reasons for choosing it as my home away from home in Mexico City. First, the location: Colonia Napoles, where the Dakota is located, is a very safe and pleasant neighborhood with excellent restaurants and shops. When venturing further afield there is also easy access to the Metrobus on Insurgentes only 3 blocks away. Second, the hotel: Guests at the Dakota will find their accommodations not only clean and comfortable but will also notice an overall abundance of good taste and attention to detail not usually found in such a moderately priced establishment. Third, the owners: Max and Ruth, are two of the most sincerely gracious and hospitable people I have ever met. Ruth prepares excellent and varied deysayunos to start your day while Max gives each guest helpful advice (in English or Spanish) on places to go and things to do while in Mexico City. Because of the Dakota B and B (and Max and Ruth) I have come to appreciate and enjoy my time in Mexico City. There is no doubt that I will be returning to Mexico City and the Dakota B and B.
That is the place you have to stay if you are staying close by the World Trade Center. Great location, very calm neighborhood, there are many restaurants around, supermarket 24hrs and very nice parks very close by. The B&B is managed for a more then helpfull guy called Max. max, thanks for everything, I had a great time at Dakota, and your mexican breakfast are just great. I would come back for sure. Highly recommended!!!”
Throw all of your tour books away. Max, a native of Mexico City, knows more about Mexico City than all of those books combined and will enthusiastically share his knowledge with you. He helped me plan trips, gave me maps, made suggestions of what to see and where to eat, and answered all of my questions. He's really a wonderful host! He even lent me his own Metrobus card (which he certainly did not have to do; it was incredibly generous). The rooms are very comfortable and quiet (and include a safe), the breakfasts are delicious, and the neighborhood is lovely, safe, and close to lots of things. I would definitely recommend this B & B to others and plan to stay again when I return to Mexico City.
I have had many positive B&B experiences in my time, but this may top them all. We had two lovely (and clean) rooms between the four or us, with a shared private courtyard (and a very charming garden to one side). Hard to think of any improvements. At first we thought the beds were hard, but after a side tip (lodging at three other places), we realized that by the standards of the area, the beds were probably above average (nice mattress toppers). The only suggestion I can come up with is to allow for the little bathroom "vent windows" to be closeable, so that bathroom noise doesn't have to be shared with those on the patio. :) The location is awesome. Safe feeling (we did a lot of late night walking), near restaurants and parks, and just far enough from Insurgentes (bus line). Max was absolutely amazing. Soooo accommodating, both before and during our stay (three nights). He helped us plan EVERYTHING, including walking tours, side trips, bus and taxi rides, touristy stuff (crowd avoidance, saving money,etc.). He arranged transportation for us on several occasions. Breakfasts were hearty and tasty; Max went thru extra effort to accommodate dietary restrictions. I hate to admit it, but, but we were high maintenance tourists, and demanded a LOT of Max's time. I'm sure he had other things to do, but Max showed nothing but patience and good humor with us throughout our stay.
We stayed at Dakota B&B for three nights and it was an ideal choice for our stay. We wanted simple, clean, safe accommodation and that is exactly what we got. Max, our host, was fantastic. He was so helpful and pretty much organised our entire trip for us. We hadn't done much research and he gave us all the tips and information we needed to ensure we had a fantastic three days in this wonderful city. He very kindly drove us to our airport shuttle bus at an extremely early hour in the morning - thank you Max! Our room was spotlessly clean and the patio area outside the room was lovely. The B&B is ideally located for getting aroudn the city with great transport links and a great choice of restaurants etc. The breakfast was also excellent. We would definitely recommend this lovely B&B!
I booked my room after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. It is located very close to metro station San Cosme so you can reach easily the sights. I loved my room it was nicely decorated as the whole place. The exhibited works of local artists provide a special atmosphere. When you enter the big door you can find a beautiful, relaxing place where you can feel really comfortable. I spent 5 nights in room Veracruz. My bed was huge and super cozy and the shared bathroom was also nice and clean. The wifi was much better than in my previous 4star hotel. I liked the breakfasts a lot - warm Mexican food with fresh juice, fruits and coffee. The staff is very helpful and kind, their hospitality is amazing. They arranged great tours for me to Teotihuacan and to the local markets. Both tours were professionally organized and I could learn a lot about history and arts too. El Patio’s staff gives you all support you can imagine (from suggesting places to see or eat to calling a taxi) they are really taking care of you. Big thank you Alan, Diego and the entire staff! I would like to come back and I highly recommend this place.
I stayed at El Patio 77 for two weeks while working in Mexico City. I very much enjoyed the calm and beauty of the space and the friendliness of the owners and staff. The breakfast is proper Mexican, but I could have something else if I wanted to, so I recommend the 'real one'. I will definitely come back for a cultural trip. The area is still a little rough, but it is an upcoming location, but it is extremely central and everything is in close reach. It is a beautiful place and a little magic too!
Excelente atención de Max. Un anfitrión de lujo. La habitación impecable, limpia, espaciosa, y con todas las comodidades. La ubicación excelente. Un solo aspecto a mejorar: el desayuno se sirve a partir de las 8:30, y a veces uno necesita tomarlo antes... Eso si, el desayuno es completísimo y delicioso. Altamente recomendable!

I've just moved to Mexico City, and stayed at Dakota B&B for a week. I'm really glad I chose this B&B. Max, the owner, is simply awesome: he knows everything about Mexico City and he's always willing to help, at pretty much any time of the day. The B&B is very well located; the area is safe, well served by public transport,not far from the center and full of restaurants, shops etc... I really enjoyed the breakfast too, as it varies every day and you get a good sense of what a Mexican breakfast is like. (It's not the standard hotel buffet breakfast, but it's good, filling and no food gets wasted...). The room was cleaned almost every day (except I think for the first day), and was always left in perfect conditions. There was a minor issue with my single room: it's not well ventilated, so it will get pretty humid after a shower. Apart from that, everything was perfect. Will definitely recommend it to family/friends!
We were originally due to stay at the Dakota B&B for 5 nights but we extended this to 10 nights. The bed and breakfast is very well located and near the Metrobus which we used very frequently and without problems. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The breakfast is also very good, something different is served everyday. We were very impressed with the Dakota B&B and would certainly return again. Max (the owner) is extremely helpful and always offered us advice on how to travel around the city.
The Dakota Bed & Breakfast was everything I wanted and needed for my stay in Mexico City. I was attending a show at the World Trade Center, and the Dakota is an 8 minutes stroll, just as Max told me it would be. Unless you stop at Starbucks along the way. Haha! The neighborhood is attractive and safe and public transportation is convenient. Max, your host, can assist you with any needs you might have...and is truly a generous and thoughtful person. For those who don't speak Spanish...no problem. Max is fluent in English. The rooms are attractive and comfortable, and my room looked out to a gorgeous patio garden. Breakfast was quite good...and filling: fresh fruit, juice, coffee and a main entree such as delicious pancakes, eggs, etc. I'm so glad someone recommended this cozy B&B. It was perfect!
We had a great stay at Dakota Bed & Breakfast. The place was just what we were looking for: cozy, clean, and in a great location. As a bonus we were happy to see the decoration and design were really cool. The guy who runs it Max, made us feel at home and also made us feel we had a friend in town, he gave very thorough answers to any questions we asked. We also really enjoyed the breakfast, it definitely was not your regular b&b breakfast. I'm talking about blueberry pancakes and scrambled eggs with ham... yumm! -Kim & Joe, from NJ
This B&B is fantastic. Tucked away on a lovely street in a very safe and mature neighborhood. Which is also a really convenient location for getting around the City via the metrobus or taxi. The b&b is extremely well kept and is very clean. Lovely garden! The host, Max, is so welcoming and thoughtful. Also very helpful for planning trips and arranging taxis for us. We had a great time here and will stay here again for sure! Highly recommended.
Pocas ciudades en el mundo suscitan sentimientos tan contrapuestos en los turistas como la ciudad de México. Algunos la detestan por su caótico tráfico, por el aire irrespirable debido a sus 2.00 m. de altitud o por la peligrosidad de los barrios periféricos, pero otros sucumben antes el encanto de su Centro Histórico, les apasiona la calidez del pueblo mejicano que inunda sus calles y por la belleza de sus monumentos. Tendrá la sensación de encontrarse en un lugar irrepetible, al límite del viejo y del nuevo mundo, donde la leyenda se une a la historia, y su entorno conserva aún un aurea de primitiva majestuosidad. br/>
La visita a la ciudad más grande de toda América, y quizás de todo el planeta, se puede iniciar en la Plaza de la Constitución, conocida popularmente como el Zócalo, una de las plazas más grandes del mundo y que se vuelve fascinante con motivo de la celebración del Día de los Difuntos, del 1 al 2 de Noviembre tiene lugar su particular Halloween Latino, contaminado de notas aztecas y mallas e inundado de disfraces espectaculares. Muy cerca se encuentra la Catedral Metropolitana, con su bellísimo Sagrario y junto a ésta, el Palacio Nacional, edificio que antes fue llamado el Palacio de Montezuma. No muy lejos del Zócalo, se alza el Templo Mayor, restos de los fue en su día el Templo Azteca de Tenochtitlan que dominaba la vida de la ciudad.
Es prácticamente imposible mantener una dieta cuando uno visita esta ciudad, su gastronomía satisface los gustos de cualquiera ya sean de mucho o poco picante, con carnes o pescados, solo verduras siempre es un festival de sabores y olores. Sus famosas enchiladas, tortas de maíz rellenas de chile, verduras y queso es un plato de los más populares, sin olvidar el Pozole, plato preparado a base de maíz cocido, salsa de tomate y chile que se sirve acompañado de carne de cerdo.
Ir de compras también es una experiencia que ningún turista debería olvidar. En México se pueden comprar artículos de cerámica, como fuentes, jarras, figuras, etc. Muebles, objetos utilitarios y esculturas en madera también son muy apreciados por los turistas, sin olvidar los objetos como peines y peinetas realizados con hueso y con incrustaciones de carey. Merece una mención especial el Árbol de la Vida: artesanía que se empezó a hacer en los años 40 y reproduce escenas de la biblia con un estilo muy particular. Hay verdaderas obras de arte que pueden llegar a medir 5 m. de alto aunque lo habitual es que midan solo unos centímetros.
A la hora de elegir alojamiento no tendremos ninguna dificultad ya que es una ciudad muy turística y sus infraestructuras hoteleras están muy desarrolladas. Hay una opción, no muy conocida por los viajeros, que son pequeños hoteles familiares, conocidos como Bed and Breakfast en México a precios muy razonables y con una calidad increíblemente buena.
