My wife and I were a bit apprehensive about traveling to Mexico City as we had heard plenty about pollution, filth, danger, violence, scams etc.
Well not only did that prove to be untrue on our visit but the staff at the Red Tree House insisted on making sure we had a good time!
They quickly establish what guests want out of their visit, which could be adventure, food, culture, history, partying etc, and in our case was mainly sightseeing.
The staff made everything from catching buses, taxis or the trains seem simple, and were constantly printing maps and instructions to get where we wanted efficiently and cheaply. Their local knowledge saved us from getting ripped off or inconvenienced plenty of times.
Other travelers note that the RTH also seems to attract the 'right kind' of guests, but the truth is that it attracts all kinds! In our stay we met business professionals, artists, writers, photographers, curators and some people who were filming a documentary - all great people from all over the world and all happy to share their experiences. These meetings occurred seamlessly over a communal breakfast or an early evening drink.
Seriously we couldn't recommend this place higher! Its great value and the rooms are beautiful, modern and clean. We wish our bedroom at home was as good as our room at RTH! The courtyard is lovely and peaceful and they are right in the heart of Condessa, which in itself is a refuge from the hustle and bustle. Condessa was the perfect area to stay in and we would have loved to spend a few days just relaxing at RTH but our time didn't allow for that.
Anyway, in closing we'd just love to give a shout out to Ernesto (staff member and good friend) who took us under his wing during our stay. We truly left knowing we have Mexican friends who we'd welcome into our home should they ever visit Melbourne
