Absolutely beautiful eco-hotel. The fountain, the plants, the lovely tile work. The room itself was beyond expectations, very well decorated and comfortable. The staff were also just so friendly and helpful and able to accommodate our last minute requests. Location nearby everything and in ideal part of town. Better than perfect stay at Las Mariposas!
Basic breakfast of coffee/tea and bread or pastry was included in the room charge. It was fine and all I needed.
Refrigerator was a bit noisy when running in the night.
Staff very alert to our needs and friendly, loved the quiet and the courtyards, location 10 min from Zocalo and Santo Domingo, ATM very close by, gated entrance, whimsical art and decor everywhere.
Protein at breakfast would’ve been nice but we had a kitchenette and made omelette.
Close to town Beautiful setting Very well set up and has a really good vibe to it with super cool staff
The studio room we had was big, with high ceilings, simply decorated yet had everything we needed, with a new nice kitchen. Close walk to everything - Santo Domingo church, Etnobotanica garden, even the Zocolo. The fresh food market close by (10 min walk) had amazing tamales and was good for buying what we needed to cook breakfasts with in the studio. It has a beautiful garden/ grounds in the centre of the hotel, possibly a room at the back would be nicer and more relaxing.
Our room was right next to the street and what once were doors leading to the street were plastered up and weren't very good sound proofers - we heard really loud traffic from 7am every morning. The toilet was a small room with an open roof into the studio apartment so if you are travelling with another person you can hear everything that is going on in the toilet (in case that puts you off). The hotel lets vendors into the grounds to sell things like textiles and clothing, another off-putting thing as you can't even relax in the gardens without people trying to sell you something. They charged us over double what you can pay in the markets close by for what we bought so we felt scammed since we were just trying to support locals. My Mexican partner was the one who spoke to and bought the items from these women so it wasn't even like they were ripping off gringos. When we brought this up with hotel staff they gave us our money back which was nice and we went elsewhere to support locals that were being fair in their prices. Breakfast is literally coffee & cake so best not rely on that and make your own if staying in a studio or go out. Also, we didn't get a very friendly vibe from the hotel staff in reception, got the impression they just wanted to sell (overpriced) tours and not offer advice on how to do things on a budget/ catch local buses etc so they could make more money by selling their own products- the whole point we booked with them was because they were a budget accommodation. We stayed at Parador de Alcala hotel (a 4 star) prior to staying here and the staff were much more friendly and helpful in this manner - I'd stay there again but not here.
