Leonora was accommodating and a gracious host. We all felt welcomed in her spacious home. The location is the best! We will definitely be back again.

Dear Leonora We'd like to thank you once again for your great hospitality! Your place was exactly what we were looking for. On one hand a lot of privacy and space (as we were the only guests) and on the other hand you were always responsive for our needs. As a group of eight with a little infant of fourteen months this was essential and very comfortable. We lived in México-City some years ago and therefore we can recommend your area (Coyoacan) for anyone who's thinking about visiting the city. Thanks a lot - we would book again with you! Nora & family

Leonora hosted 10 of our foreign wedding guests and they had a wonderful time. She's the kindest hostess, always willing to offer advice. Our friends where delighted with the abundant breakfast where they got to try several local fruits. The house is lovely, the cats are friendly, and Leonora was able to alter our reservation and add extra days for our convenience. It was perfect!

From the minute we got there Leonora was amazing with our family. She was very open to any questions we had, had everything ready for us and was very friendly. She had breakfast ready for us every morning including coffee, espresso, pan dulce, pancakes, etc. For the week she became part of our family. We even had some challenges that she was more than willing to jump in and help with. Awesome... if in Mexico City we will definitely be returning here. The whole family loved her and we all gave her hugs when we left.

Leonora made us feel welcome by showing us her house and provided a local map. She helped us with our various needs. We loved the space and liked that each of us had a set of keys to come and go as we pleased. She is a lovely person.

This is a nice place in a great part of Mexico City. The rooms at the b&b, while basic, are clean and comfortable. Leonora and her daughters were friendly and very welcoming -- we were a large group of 10 (including kids) and basically took over the entire b&b but that didn't seem to faze the host at all.

Leonora was a wonderful hostess. The house is beautiful, as you see in the pictures, and it is found in a perfect location to explore south Mexico City. The rooms and house were clean and cosy. We were traveling with a big group of people, and everyone was super happy to stay here. Breakfast was delicious. Leonora was very flexible and helpful with our plans, and we enjoyed her charming chats and tips. Definitely a great place to stay in!

Response from Leonora:
I totally appreciate your kind review! All of your friends and family were a pleasure to attend. I was somewhat overwhelmed by the number of people and felt badly since I couldn't attend them all as I normally would. I understand that you had too much going on and you did the best you could under the circumstances. Muchas felicidades a ti y Wolf!

Leonora User Profile

I've lived in Mexico City for twenty-five years and love receiving visitors and guiding them to have a pleasurable and fulfilling experience in the D.F. (the Federal District).

After working in English Language Teaching (publishing and giving classes) for many years, I'm always ready to have a lively discussion about language learning, or any other subject for that matter. I read a lot (especially historical novels and any books by Paul Auster or Murakami), and try to keep up with US and Mexican politics (I listen to NPR regularly and watch CNN).

As an avid practitioner of yoga and a yoga dance instructor, I'm always happy to have someone new to join me in one of my classes (and the level of yoga in Coyoacan is excellent). In fact, one of the best ways to pick up some more Spanish is by going to a class!

I'm extremely interested in holistic health practices and love all the alternative options in Mexico. I had considered going back to the US on a few occasions but finally realized I had too good of a life here to leave.

Working freelance as a writer/editor, taking wonderful dance classes, swimming a few times a week at the gym, going to yoga and traveling keeps me busy and happy.

BTW, my favorite language is Spanglish, and it's what I speak the best!

I feel extremely blessed to have so many interests, and to have gotten to a point in my life where I can be my authentic self, live in the present moment, feel free, and totally enjoy life!
