In a nutshell:
Unusual for a city hotel, la Casona is more like a private home. There is a musical theme and the hotel will appeal to lovers of antiquities. The location is convenient for the trendy Condesa district and within easy reach of sightseeing locations.

 

A home from home in the hustle and bustle of the city and a cozy retreat after a busy day sightseeing, La Casona is perfect for those who love cities but want an alternative to the impersonal large hotels on busy boulevards.

 

La Casona is conveniently situated for the trendy Condesa district and easily accessible from all main attractions. A pleasant thirty minutes’ walk will take you to the Museum of Anthropology, or twenty minutes to Chapultepec, but the hotel can also arrange a driver to take you to any of these locations.

 

Uniquely amongst the luxury hotels in the city center, La Casona has the atmosphere of a private home – it has only 30 individually styled guest rooms. Each room features part of the music-orientated antique collection of its Swiss owners, and other antiquities are scattered around the corridors and public areas.

 

The single restaurant continues the musical theme in a cozy room which extends out onto a small courtyard. The menu choices are limited but reasonably priced, and the temptations of the Condesa eateries are just around the corner.

 

All the luxuries that you would find in a large hotel are here – from express laundry service to traditionally styled bathrooms – but the service is friendly and personal. We’d rate this small luxury hotel as unsurpassable for character in the heart of the city.

 

Rooms

A quick glance around your room tells you that this is no ordinary city hotel. Hardwood floors are softened by oriental style rugs; there may be an antique desk or armoire in the corner and the color schemes are warm pinks or summery yellows. Look for the signature of the owner in your room – it may be an antique violin, trombone or sheet music painted on the walls.

 

Full length windows overlook the street or the interior courtyards – choose the latter for maximum insulation from the streets, although in any room you’ll feel a mile away from the city. You’ll also find air-conditioning and heating available in an individually controlled unit.

 

Rooms have either one king, queen, matrimonial bed or occasionally two twin beds.  An extra bed or crib can be added in some rooms at extra charge. The hotel does not have any connecting rooms, although some rooms are close together and may work well for families. No smoking rooms are available.

 

 

 

Summary of room facilities

All rooms

One king, queen or two twin beds, wifi, room safe, Cable TV, air-conditioning and heating

This is an example of a spacious king bedroom. Most of the rooms, including this one, face internal courtyards and are very quiet. Of the twenty nine rooms at the hotel, only ten are exterior facing.

 

Most rooms at the hotel have a full bathtub with a shower above (four rooms have a shower only). Spotlessly clean, the bathrooms are  traditional in style and furnished with robes, hairdryers and bottled water.

 

This room has a queen bed and is very pretty. Look for the novel ceiling – part of it is painted to resemble the night sky. All rooms have cable TV, direct dial telephones and usually a radio alarm clock too.

This is one of the rooms with two twin beds. It has beautiful hardwood floors and a writing desk. It’s an internal room and is pleasantly quiet. La Casona is popular with business travelers who prefer to feel at home during their visit to the city rather than staying at one of the large and impersonal properties.

 

restaurant

Colorful and informal, the restaurant is as welcoming as the guest rooms. Here the warm yellow walls are home to more eclectic collections – brightly colored masks dominate the walls by full length windows, and tables spill out into a small courtyard half-filled with foliage and a modern fountain arrangement.

 

Breakfast on the patio is delightful, with the myriad of colors brightening up the city surroundings (of course, tables are also available in the restaurant).

 

Choose from an à la carte selection, or the tempting buffet of fruits and juices, various hot dishes, bread and pastries, cereals, cheese and yogurts.  At other times choose from a selection of specialties.  Room service is also available from 7:00am to 10:30pm.

 

There may be plenty of choice for dining in the city, but should you wish to dine in your home-from-home you certainly won’t be disappointed.
