These people who are here for youmake you comfortable. My flight always comes in late to the local airport, and there's always someone here to greet me. If my flight leaves very very early in the morning, they set an alarm, and come down, and let me out and secure the house again after I go. This house is a perfect location in Puebla in a district called La Paz. Its very safe at the house. The house has lots of security if you're concerned with security issues. It's located in a nice neighborhood. I never had to lock the door to my room, or worry about anything in the house. Richard and Lucia the owners (bi-lingual), make you incredibly welcome at this house. Their sons Elliot and Sam are plesantly asking me if I need anything. They have always been very very nice about calling for taxi cabs, and restaurants in making reservations, and never complain about it. Wonderful customer service. Sitting in the evening out in the patio on the front with a book, and a cool breeze to relax you is a wonderful way to spend time relaxing. The breakfast. I have to talk about the breakfast OMG. They have an in house chef named Yaz. She is a Culinary School graduate. Just wait until you see the breakfast. Everyday something completely different. I photographed every one of them. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I should mention that when you come here, and need a taxi cab, you should ask them to call for Americo. He never overcharges and he is very pleasant, though no English. Very safe. If you need something special like a haircut or massage (by Raquel) they have professionals that come to the house and do it here for a reasonable price. We did both.

Without doubt this is the most gracious, welcoming, and engaging family I have stayed with in some time. Lucia and Richard's two sons, Sam and Elliot, recently graduated from Universities in the States, were always helpful and up for stimulating conversation. Lucia is an inspiration and should be declared a Mexican National Treasure. Our only regret was that we were only able to spend a morning with Richard as he was away in the Capitol that week. However he was a genial host at breakfast. Speaking of which, this was the best breakfast served anywhere we have stayed in Mexico. Every meal was a wonderful surprise. -M&S

Staying at B&B La Paz made our weeklong stay in Puebla a very special experience. Richard , Lucia , and their sons treated us like members of their family and were warm, attentive and always unstinting in providing whatever information or assistance we needed. The house is clean and comfortable, and the breakfasts, prepared by a culinary school graduate, were ample, varied,and delicious. All of the family members are multilingual, great for non-Spanish speakers or those who wish to practice their Espanol. La Paz is much quieter than staying in Centro, and the house is a short walk from restaurants and shops and close to bus stations serving the Mexico city airport and other destinations. To get to the historical center you can take a taxi for $50MX/$4 US. We arrived in Puebla without one of our suitcases that was lost on a flight, and without Richard and Lucia's hours of dogged help the situation never would have been resolved. We cannot speak highly enough of this wonderful and interesting family!

When you stay here you are truly staying in Lucia and Richard's home and they, and their sons, go out of their way to make you feel like a welcomed guest. I was there for 7 days and conversation around the breakfast table was always stimulating. Breakfast itself was outstanding.

Puebla La Paz IS the place to stay while visiting Puebla. Richard, Lucia, and their two sons are the perfect hosts who know how to make their guests feel welcome. They are a helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly family. We appreciated the many valuable tips and help arranging everything from a taxi to tickets to an archeological site. Indeed, prior to our visit, Richard, responded to our many questions. This truly helped us organize our trip and better appreciate the area. Their beautiful and very clean home is located in a quiet neighborhood with many restaurants close by. The breakfasts were delicious and accommodated our vegetarian diet. When it was time to leave, we felt as if we were saying good-by to family. We can't wait to return to Puebla La Paz!!

I needed to add 2 extra days to my itinerary. I was able to get them here. OMG. Wish I coulda booked here first. Though the other place I stayed was centrally located, there is no way anyone could make me feel like I was at my home like Richard, Lucia, and his family. I shoulda changed my other arrangements. Even the Cook and house keeper were awesome. Closer to Cholula for sightseeing and Cholula is awesome, you are a short cab ride from the Zocalo. The room was so much bigger and better than you see in the pic. Bathroom was also large. It is quiet, and very secure. I never worried about my things ever. Everyone goes out of their way with suggestions for sightseeing, restaurants, or just relaxing. Big screen TV in the Sala, and the house has Wi-Fi with modern plug in for cell and laptop charging. I had a million questions and Richard was always very patient. So was his son. English and Spanish spoken. If you need a cab, they use the same guys so you won't pay too much as a tourist. Just arrange a time and pick up place. NEXT TIME I WILL DO MY ENTIRE STAY HERE. I woulda booked differently knowing what I know now. Oh, I almost forgot. The best reason to stay is the incredible breakfast you get every morning. I miss it already. Richard . . . get out that wide angle camera so everyone can see the size of those rooms.

The friendliness and warmth from Richard and Lucía makes you feel like at home in this B&B. Rooms were adequately decorated and clean. The breakfast was something special. Vast servings and delicious mexican dishes made your day from the start. I have nothing to say but thank you. I expect coming back shortly.

I was lucky to find this Bed and Breakfast, I stayed there for a couple of months in a business travel. I always felt at home there since the first day. Richard, Lucy, and Elliot gave me a warm welcome since the first day, they always helped me to get around places and gave me tips to enjoy my stay in Puebla. The harmony of the family fills the house with a nice sense of peace, even if they are not in the house. Now I have three more good friends/family in Puebla. Richard, Lucy, and Elliot gave me a nice "hasta pronto" party too. The house it is just few minutes to down town in autobus and there are plenty of good coffee places and restaurants around. I highly recommend this B&B you will enjoy staying there.

I had never thought of looking into BandBs in Puebla so was really surprised to find this location. Richard and Lucia make you fell welcome from the moment you first write, and then make you fell like family throughout the stay. I spent hours talking to them and now have two new friends!

I came accross this location truly by accident. I was attending a large travel event in Puebla that completely sold out its hotel rooms. Lucky for me, I found this private property available and hosted by Richard Stone. The location is excellent with easy access to public transportation and in a safe neighborhood. The room was gorgeous with private bathroom, wifi, and plenty of sunshine. Breakfast was prepared by a local student chef, it was superb and tasty. Perhaps the best feature of this short term rental was the warm hospitality of the host family.Richard, Lucia and son Elliot were all great hosts. They were friendly, informative and very helpfull. I could not have asked for better service, particularly from my host Richard who quickly responded to every question I asked. I look forward to a future stay here. Roberto
