The Red Tree House makes for both a great stay and the perfect welcome into Mexico City. Did you know Mexico City is the largest Spanish-speaking city in the world with over 22 MILLION people? How intimidating is that! In March 2017, my friend and I went to Mexico City for the first time to check it out. We did a ton of research on what to do, see, and eat and of course became overwhelmed with suggestions! We only had one weekend so we knew we’d only be able to scratch the surface. Given it is such a big city, I was a bit nervous and didn’t know where to start. Thankfully, we had an amazing stay at a Bed and Breakfast called The Red Tree House with very friendly staff that helped us navigate.
The Red Tree House’s Location in Condesa
For anyone’s first time to CDMX, I highly recommend staying in either the Condesa or Roma neighborhoods. In general, they are both safe and very relaxing areas with tree-lined streets and cute boutique shops and cafes. We loved the location of The Red Tree House because it is within walking distance to just about anything you’d want or need. Just around the corner is Parque Mexico, a fun-loving dog park surrounded by cafes. If you have a sweet tooth, I recommend swinging by El Ocho across from the park. Our stomachs were slightly full from one too many tacos, so we didn’t indulge but everything sounded so good! Based on a recommendation from The Red Tree House, we enjoyed delicious tacos al pastor at El Tizoncito Cholula which I would recommend to all as a go to meal in town!
Highlights of Staying at The Red Tree House
Beyond having an ideal location, the Red Tree House has so much to offer. The house has hotel rooms as well as apartments and was built in the 1930’s. Moreover, it is beautifully decorated throughout the interior and garden patio area. Nearby, there are more rooms in a building they named the “tree branch” location. My friend and I stayed here in one of their Garden Rooms upstairs. The room was equipped with AC, a TV, seating area and also quaint courtyard area with a small garden.
One of the distinct highlights of our entire stay was the warm, friendly and hospitable staff. The staff seriously care about your stay here and you can tell in each interaction you have. They go above and beyond to make sure you feel right at home.
We went from checking in and shaking hands with strangers to exchanging hugs and saying good bye to new friends.
Browsing their site, you’ll see that they describe the B&B as a place where you are “staying with friends”. After I left, I knew I didn’t just stay at an ordinary hotel.
Daily Brekfasts at The Red Tree House
Finally, the food is something that needs to be highlighted. We were treated with a breakfast of the day and they were also sensitive to any dietary restrictions. On the three days we visited, we enjoyed a turkey and cheese torta, enchiladas, and huevos rancheros. They also have coffee, tea, juices, various croissants and breads with jams and butter and an assortment of fruits.
Overall, I really enjoyed my stay here. Looking forward, I could totally see myself coming back on a solo trip as well. They have been marked in the Press as a Top Spot for the Solo Traveler and I can easily see why. The Red Tree House has a great home away from home feel. You can even take their dog out on a walk in the nearby dog park! How unique. For more information and latest offers and rates, check out their website: The Red Tree House.
