“Charming oasis in Mexico City”
Reviewed 28 November 2011

The Hotel Park Villa in Mexico City is relaxing and charming. The garden is beautiful and provides a tranquil escape from the city. The food and service in the restaurant in the villa is outstanding. If you love great food, service and need a green reprieve from the city, stay at Hotel Park Villa.

We chose this family owned small hotel because of its location and price, knowing it has excellent service and resembles a colonial spanish hacienda or large home with an inside patio (which is really for guests with cars, making this hotel what is known in the US as a motel).

Location was important for personal reasons, but leaving that aside, others will find the area a comfortable place near Chapultepec Park with reasonably easy access to transportation. The hotel is 45 years old but maintained very nicely and does not look old at all, with its colonial architecture and decorations. Quite beautiful. It has a sister luxury hotel next to it which is tailor made for business people.

We chose a small room (too small for my taste, with a double bed which could and should have been queen size) for a low price of 790 pesos per night for my wife and I, because it was the one available of only two rooms with air condition (prices are slightly higher for bigger rooms but without air condition), important to us in order to keep the windows closed at night and not have to listen to traffic at dawn, making sleep difficult after 4am. Others might be comfortable with opening the windows at night to get fresh air and not be bothered by the noise coming from cars, buses and trucks. The rooms do not have refrigerators, but they do contain free bottled water, flat television with programs in spanish and english, acceptably sized bathrooms with acceptably few amenities, the necessary ones. Lighting, however, was very poor in our room and perhaps also in other rooms.

The hotel does not offer breakfast free of charge, but it does have a restaurant operated separate from the hotel by the same family. A very good, well known and popular restaurant that opens up to a courtyard very beautifully landscaped with trees and bushes, plus 9 guacamayas and two lions (male and female) that like to let you know they are alive and well in the late morning and early afternoon, perhaps either to announce they are hungry, or the reverse, that they have eaten well. There is also a place for children to play while adults enjoy their meals.

The hotel offers free internet, except in the section where we were, because the owners refuse to spend money to buy the required new modem and instead invite guests to use the service in the restaurant, the courtyard or just move to another room in a different section where the service works. We chose the restaurant in the early morning and at night because it was fairly empty and did not bother anyone. We also enjoyed the guitar singer who plays every week night (did not ask why not the weekend as well).

The restaurant is excellent, with quality food and excellent service. Prices are acceptable for some items, high for others (such as fruits). For breakfast, we recommend “huevos rancheros al gusto” which is very good and inexpensive. Coffee drinkers will find they only have to pay for the first cup.

Room Tip: Make sure your room has the internet available.

I had a perfectly great room at a great price but at a remove from downtown. I moved here to be closer in to a friend. It is across from Chapultepec Park. There is a reason they don't show pictures of the rooms on the website, although the room is not bad looking. It is a more traditional low rise exterior walkway hotel. Problems: first of all room smells of air freshener, I am allergic to this. They did warn me that there is no air conditioning or heat but did not tell me there would also not be enough blankets. Bed hard as a rock. Bathroom and decor uninspired and chips in the plaster of the wall. The rate is reasonable but I am able to pay more. If price and proximity to the park are your primary considerations you might be able tolerate the air freshener. i am trying to move to the other property owned by the same group, but still awaiting their verdict. I wish I had stayed out at the Camino Real and paid the extra money in taxi fares.

This was the second time we stayed at the Park Villa. We highly recommend this cute little hotel with the first class accommdations, The rooms are lovely, clean and confortable. The staff is very helpful and pleasant. They have a very, very nice restaurant.
We always ate breakfast, one we had a mexican breakfast, the next day we had a very american breakfast to even a continental breakfast. Dinner is also very good and reasonable. Its located in an area that is easy to get to any where you want to go, the staff was helpful in giving us directions on how to get around the city on the bus. When ever we come to Mexico City, this is where we'll stay.

Quiet comfortable room. Reasonable price. Helpful staff. Good courtyard restaurant with garden features two (safely) caged lions - and hummingbirds that visit the flowers. A mariachi band played in the restaurant as we arrived. From our room, the occasional roaring of the lions was audible - but only loud enough to be fun, not disturbing. Convenient location a short block from Chapultepec Park and the National History Museum, a short cab ride from restaurant and shopping districts. Alejandro was ever eager to help with bags and details.

Located on the quiet south side of Chapultepec Park is this wonderful little hotel. Hotel Park Villa is located about two blocks away from the south entrance of Chapultepec Park, so it's only a short walk to the park. The rooms are hand painted with flowers over the beds and the furniture has a rustic feel to it. My only complaint is that the beds were too hard.

This hotel also has a beautiful garden restaurant on the premises, that houses two lions and several tropical birds. Although I felt a little sad for the lions, my kids LOVED them. They would run to their cages every morning to greet them.

They staff was very friendly. Most spoke some English, with help us out. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a quieter stay in Mexico City.
