We spent a week at Maria del Alma and were absolutely blown away by Fernando and Jorge's hospitality. Where to start? Fernando, aside from being a wonderful cook and foodie, was an absolutely delightful host. He was very knowledgeable about Coyoacán, Mexico City, and Mexican culture. But breakfast was the highlight of the day. Every morning Fernando delighted us with different traditional breakfast dishes, fresh fruit juice, and coffee. Best of all was his attentiveness and eloquent conversation. The entire house is filled with charming touches. We felt right at home, but better! We were happy to have requested the double room with the balcony, as we spent a great deal of time in such a serene space. Ninfa, the cockatiel was cute too, lots of personality for such a small bird. The hotel location is also superb, just a couple of blocks from the Frida Kahlo Museum, the Trotsky Museum, Coyoacán center, and the Viveros, for a nice walk/run. Overall, it was our best stay in Mexico and we look forward to staying there again in the future.
