Fabulous, staff very personable, beautiful space, and the was breakfast fantastic! Every morning the staff would ask us where we were heading to and they would give us a local recommendation. Can't speak more highly of our stay! Will stay here again and have already recommended to our friends. Walking distance to everything or very easy to catch the subway....

Our room, the Oaxaca Suite was very large and comfortable in this historic building in the Colonia San Rafael neighborhood. A different traditional breakfast was served each day with great coffee from the Mexican State of Chiapas. A walking tour map was provided in each room that we used to learn more of the neighborhood.

This is truly a great place to stay, especially if you want to be close to the center of Mexico City while still experiencing life in a real neighborhood. This was my first trip to Mexico City, so the staff (Veronica, Alex, Alan, etc.) really helped me feel at home and well acclimated. I was in town only four days,...

There are not enough words to describe this excellent place. If you pass by the place, chances are that you will not even notice it is there. There is no sign on the street to indicate the location, but once inside, you are taken to another place- the decor and ambiance of the place make you feel more than welcome,...

The staff had been very helpful and comforting before I ever left for Mexico City. I was alone, knowing little Spanish, a short trip into a different country for the first time.

El Patio 77 was recommended to my wife and I for our honeymoon. This place has great style- big rooms, big windows, antique and modern furniture, very eco-conscious (using grey water for the toilets, motion sensor lights in the common areas), and the breakfast is simple, but delicious, with fresh juices/fruit, local ingredients, and coffee. It's also close to El...

We stayed three nights last week and on the whole really enjoyed El Patio 77. I would have to agree with the mosquito issue and am glad to hear it is being looked into.

As other reviewers have noted, el patio 77 is quiet, beautifully designed, and spacious to say the least. However, the neighborhood was a bit secluded from many tourist spots and dining options. Be prepared generally for very long walks or having to depend on taxis and taking the metro when going out at night. Mezzo mezzo was an exception however...
