“One of the Best Places I've Stayed”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

This is a small guest house in an excellent Mexico City neighborhood called Condesa. Lush, tropical plants and trees line the nearby streets, there are numerous parks, squares with fountains -- just beautiful, and not at all what I expected to find in Mexico City.

We spent five nights in “The Branch,” which is a separate house just across the street from the main house. Our room was beautiful, and from our third floor terrace all we could see was trees, with a few buildings peeking between the branches. We were welcome to venture over to the main house each evening, but our terrace was such a relaxing spot to rest after a long day touring the city that we just couldn’t push ourselves to move, until about 10 or 11, which is dinnertime in Mexico City.

There are tons of restaurants in the area when you are ready for dinner, from French, to Argentinian, to high-end Mexican to whole-in-the-wall taquerias. The restaurants we tried were all excellent. There’s a subway stop about 6 blocks away if you feel like going further afield. The neighborhood felt perfectly safe, even when we walked back very late.

Every morning we wandered over to the main house, and were served breakfast, a different one each day. All were excellent.

But the best thing was the hosts. Ernesto, Victor, Martin, Rodrigo, Alex, all went above and beyond to help us out, to make us feel comfortable, to make sure we knew where we were going, to arrange massages at the local spa and dinners in the neighborhood. I had read the other reviews and was afraid that the hospitality would be a bit cloying, which has been the case at some other places I have stayed. But these guys really know how to be hospitable, yet discreet at the same time. This is a rare and wonderful combination.

I can’t recommend this place strongly enough – absolutely perfect!

My husband and I kicked off a month in Mexico by staying here for 3 nights. It was terrific! I cannot praise the staff (and owners) enough. They were all very friendly, helpful and welcoming. They were knowledgeable about both the Condesa neighborhood and Mexico City. Our room was beautiful as well as very comfortable and the gorgeous patio was an inviting place to sit and read, or to socialize with the other guests during the complimentary cocktail hour. The breakfasts were amazing and so delicious! It was a wonderful kickoff for our trip. I highly recommend this special B&B.

This very attractive little B&B located in the "Condesa" neighborhood was an amazing discovery recommended by friends for a recent planned trip to Mexico City. The very charming, attentive and hospitable staff, the very sleek and modern decor accented with artistic lighting and fresh flowers boasting local color and history, the comfortable rooms with modern bath touches (with plenty of hot water and water pressure)went above and beyond any expectations. Every aspect of the "inn" was delightful including the gorgeous patio which borders the two levels of rooms and serves as a perfect gathering area with friends and guests while sipping complimentary drinks or enjoying the delicious house made breakfasts. If you're not sure where to "land" in Mexico City The Red Tree House is a beautiful destination in a quiet neighborhood with the most dedicated staff I've seen in a long time.

I can't say enough about the great experience we had recently at the Red Tree House (in fact we stayed in the "branch") while visiting Mexico City. We arrived to a warm and friendly welcome and our room at the "Branch" just across the street was ready and delightful. Our friends who were booked in elsewhere (another story) did not fair so well and Victor & Co went to work at once to solve this situation. The customer service deserves a review of its own - it is like having your own personal concierge!! Loved the breakfasts in the garden and the drinks in the evening were an added bonus. The knowledge of what to see and where to go from museums to restaurants made our visit a total pleasure. We will be back again soon. Muchas gracias a todos en La Casa Arbol Rojo y La Rama!!

Room Tip: We loved the Branch at rooms at the top - La Corazon Y La Luna

The Red Tree House is like your home away from home in a beautiful neighborhood filled with tree lined boulevards. The building itself is wonderful and the courtyard is a wonderful oasis. But it is the staff that makes this one of the best places we have ever stayed in . They are so warm, friendly, gracious, helpful and dedicated to making you feel at home. We stayed at the RTH before and after travelling to Cuba, and having come from NYC had big bulking jackets which the RTH staff stored for us. Above and beyond.
The breakfasts (which are creative and delicious) and the happy hour (or two) are fab touches and are great times where you can sit with other travellers and swap stories of what to see and do. And on occasion, as we did, you may click with other guests and head off for a meal or on the tourist trail together.
Staying here is a uniquely personal experience and I have already recommended to all my friends, and look forward to returning again in the future.

They are gracious, helpful and dedicated to making you feel at home. The breakfasts are creative and delicious. Meeting everyone at breakfast and cocktail hour makes your stay a uniquely personal experience. The rooms are well done and spotlessly clean. I would never stay any place else in Mexico City

This was our second trip to Mexico City in two years, and our first time at Red Tree House. Our stay was absolutely delightful. From the very moment of getting out of the cab and being greeted by Victor and his staff, to having Alex wish us farewell as we returned to the airport, everything exceeded expectations. The Red Tree House is a blessing to Mexico City. Victor and his staff graciously arranged all of our dinner reservations, tours and taxis. We loved the breakfasts in the courtyard, meeting guests over drinks at happy hour, and the fact that Red Tree House was so well located. Our room was clean, the bathroom modern, and always had a hot shower. We wished we could have stayed longer, but I’m sure we’ll be back soon. Do yourself a favor, choose Red Tree House on your next visit to Mexico City.
