A rare find in the very heart of a modern metropolis, this 1923 Spanish-style casona with first-floor walls that are made of adobe brick (though now plastered over). It’s one of the few independent mid-range hotels in the neighborhood and it takes hospitality seriously, regularly updating rooms and keeping the property spotless. The house is built around a tree-filled courtyard and filled with colonial art, period furnishings, and black-and-white checkered tile floors that lend a historic air. The rooms are spacious, though rather bland, particularly the traditional rooms. The bathrooms are modern, and the colonial rooms have Spanish tiles, giving them some extra life.
