Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
Mexico City is not for the faint of heart. It’s big, brash and beautiful. After a day exploring, you’ll be in need of somewhere special to put your feet up and at El Patio 77, they’ve got hospitality down to a fine art.
Set across a charmingly converted 19th-century mansion, rooms come in a variety of shapes and sizes with no two the same but each lovingly designed by the French and Mexican owners. What's more, the team in charge have a serious knack for creating a peaceful, relaxing environment and will do whatever they can to make your stay the best it can be.
The hotel is nicely located off the beaten track, boasts impressive eco creds and has a lovely artistic touch with a few quirky design elements lurking throughout the converted building.
It's worth noting that reception isn't manned 24-hours a day, so you will need to contact the team at the hotel ahead of travel to confirm your arrival time.
A good breakfast, with even better coffee, is included in most room rates (check detail below).
There is no restaurant on site but nearby for lunch and dinner. Please note that alcohol is not served at this property, so you'll have to head out for your evening tipple.
The eight rooms are each individually designed with most boasting traditional tall windows, high ceilings and smooth wooden floors. It's worth noting that due to the age of the building, there is no air-conditioning and some of the cheaper room options offer shared bathroom facilities.
Located in the Barrio San Rafael, close to the San Cosme Market, there isn't a huge amount to do in the immediate vicinity but the calmness offers a welcome respite from the hubbub of the centre and the staff will happily help plan tours and excursions.
