Lovely hotel, looks very traditional but with a modern feel. I was only here three nights but I found the staff to be extremely helpful and willing to please. Even when there was a language barrier, the staff behind the reception would switch on the translate feature in Google to try and type their point across. A very sincere touch, which isn't what I found from the reception staff at my hotel in Mexico City. The reception at the Casa Antigua even organised me a couple of tours, which I thought were excellent and thoroughly enjoyed the tours of Mitla, Tula and Hierve Agua. The location is great and only a 5 minute walk to the Zocalo, whilst being on the door step of Calle Macedonio, the road where all the arty things happen. The one downside to the Casa Antigua is the lack of Wifi in the building. Although there is wifi, it did not work at all in my hotel room, which I found very frustrating.
This is a beautiful hotel but was extremely quiet when I was there. On my final day, I saw them advertising reduced rate rooms in what looked like a promotion campaign to pick up customers. I hope it does pick up, because everyone from the reception staff, to the breakfast waitresses and cleaners were really friendly and this place deserves to be busy. More
