The Red Tree House is the most pleasant hotel/B&B I've ever stayed in, and it's the perfect place to stay when visiting Mexico City.
The rooms themselves are wonderful. We stayed in a garden room (that actually had a very comfortable king-size bed, not a queen), and it was perfect for the two of us. It has two big glass doors, but they put a planter with a perfectly-sized plant in front of the door to provide a privacy screen to the patio tables outside. There's a portable a/c unit in the room, but the weather is so pleasant there (even in July) that we just used the fan. The bathrooms are small but completely big enough to be comfortable over a 5-night stay.
The common areas and hotel events were also lovely. There's an interior courtyard with 5-6 tables and amazing plants and vegetation. Inside in the main building, there are multiple seating areas. The hotel serves breakfast in the morning (8-10am). They have out for everyone fruits, coffee and tea, cereal, and yogurt, and they have a small kitchen staff that makes to order one item each morning. We had sopes one morning, molletes the next, and huevos rancheros with a wrapped tostada with beans the next. It was simply wonderful, and included in the price of the room. And every afternoon from 6-8pm, they serve complimentary wine and beer. The daily happy hours were a great way to meet the other guests and hear about different ideas in the city.
The staff was just delightful, too. Victor, Carlos, Yaya, Alejandro, and Craig are charming and caring people, and made the trip a success. They gave us restaurant recommendations, tour advice, and were just very nice people to meet. WHEN we go back to Mexico City, we're staying there again.
