Design Hotel: Ignacia Guest House

Meet Ignacia Guest House...your sanctuary in bustling Mexico City.


This stunning boutique hotel is owned by a woman named Gina, who used the call the property her home. Now, the hotel has five vibrantly decorated guest rooms and stunning communal spaces like this stylish living room above and a beautiful garden for guests to relax in.


You'll start your morning with coffee and a delicious home-cooked breakfast in their beautiful dining room. Artwork lines the walls, including an illustration of the hotel's namesake, Ignacia, who was the maid of the house in the early 1900s and the woman who apparently ran the show back in the day. 

The five suites are memorably named after their decor's color scheme (Negra, Rosa, Azul, Amarillo, & Verde) and no detail is spared. 

Each room has a Nespresso machine, a television set up with Netflix, fancy bottled water from Casa del Agua, and beautiful bath products by Loredana. 

Every day from 5-7pm guests are invited to cocktail hour on the patio, which is truly an oasis in the chaotic Mexico City. Fragrant orange trees stand tall over a small bar that looks out over a garden of cacti and ivy-covered walls.


There's a ton of privacy at the property, but Ignacia has two property managers, Magda (photographed above) and Julio, who are always available to answer questions, give you travel tips, or arrange reservations or excursions for you.
