Jorge & Ernesto were superb hosts for our first trip to Mexico City! We had difficulty adjusting to the climate and heat our first night there and the staff went above and beyond to assist us in becoming more comfortable! The breakfast was always tremendous we were always offered cool drinks when we returned from a hot day of sight-seeing. This B&B is a great deal and is located in a very nice area of town with a wide variety of restaurants and businesses within walking distance. Located in Condesa I found that it was helpful to carry a map with me so I could point out the location of the B&B to the taxi drivers as many of them were not familiar with the circular streets of the neighborhood.

We found our stay romantic and the place enchanting! The owners are constantly improving the place - though it is hard to imagine how it could be improved upon! The decor was simple but elegant with many beautiful touches of art, fresh flowers, and ample greenery in the courtyard. In the midst of the largest city in the world the Red Tree House was quiet, restful and a welcome haven!

I stayed at the Red Tree House with my partner for three days in March. It was the best hotel experience we have ever had traveling together. It has encouraged us to look for hotels that are as intimate and charming as RTH when we travel in the future.

Other reviewers have pretty much said it all, and Red Tree House really is as wonderful as everyone says. Mexico City can be a big, overwhelming city, but our hosts at Red Tree House welcomed us into this quiet little oasis and were always so helpful with tips and practical suggestions on getting around and making the most of our time. Abril the labrador was also always on hand to make the welcome even warmer.

We especially liked all the restaurant recommendations in La Condesa within walking distance -- we really got into the habit of taking comida in the afternoon and then dinner late at night, and trying excellent places where locals eat.

This was the best find ever. We only stayed here overnight because it was a layover from Acapulco back to the states, but I was not ready to leave. It was, hands down, the BEST hotel (not really a hotel, but bed and breakfast) experiences I have ever had. The value is superb, the service is out of this world, the breakfast was delicious, and the other travelers were delightful. These, of course, are understatements. There are not words to describe the experience here. The rooms are beautiful and the rest of the house is very comfortable and beautifully decorated as well. The location is in a safe area of Mexico City as I felt safe walking around the neighborhood even at night (accompanied by my boyfriend).

Craig (one of the owners) recommended Lampuga to eat dinner and it was fantastic. When we returned from dinner many of the guests and Craig were sitting in the living room enjoying a bottle of wine. We joined them and the wine was free flowing as long as we wanted. The conversation was lovely.

To talk about the service received there I must mention that we had difficulty getting to the House because we failed to print the directions for the cab driver before leaving. We assumed that he would know how to get there (do not make this assumption). We ended up paying a bit more than Craig had anticipated that it should cost so he sent us back to the airport the next day with one of the employees at the House. He charged us a reasonable fare (1/2 of what the cab driver charged us). He drove us directly to the airport and helped us with our luggage to the curb. The service was way above and beyond what was expected.

DO NOT miss this place. It is the ONLY place to stay if you are planning a trip to Mexico City.

The Red Tree House is one of those small hotels that one dreams of discovering in a large city. It's an old town house, lovingly renovated, with fine furniture, stylish bedrooms and great bathrooms. The place has a spacious, luxurious feel, lots of windows, interesting art works, and a contemporary, architectural quality. The staff were always warm, helpful, and highly personable. Breakfasts, either in the dining room or lovely open courtyard, were great- generous, with a good selection of fresh fruit, breads, and a daily Mexican speciality. The neighborhood, La Condesa, is filled with good restaurants and tree-lined streets (not typical in Mexico City) and small interesting parks within walking distance. All of the guest seemed to be having a wonderful time. Our own home is very attractive and comfortable. Usually, when we travel, we feel that we have to settle with something not quite as fine as home. But, in this case, we can truly say that we felt right at home.
