My mom stayed at Lenore's place in Coyoacan. The place was lovely and Lenore made my mom feel at home. If she comes back to Mexico City, she will definitely stay at this place again.
Leonora was very nice and yes we had a large party of people around 10 staying on the property for an upcoming wedding. We are an energetic bunch and yes there was 1 evening that was a bit loud for a few hours....but hey...It's a vacation and a wedding and we left the place in the condition we found it. Nice location but I would prefer to have a bit more privacy....if you get my drift. Thanks.
Very nice and helpful hosts, great breakfast, safe location and about 20 min from subway station. However, I had to slaughter few spiders in my room in the first night of stay.
We stayed at Leonora's for 5 days. Her daughters were very accomodating, and had a crib and stroller ready for us to use when we arrived with our 8-months old. They were other guests in the remaning rooms and we had a good time having breakfast together every morning. The breakfast they served at Leonora's was really tasty and filling, and introduced us to local foods. I am now an official advocate of amaranth! We were free to use the living room and felt right at home. Like many other mexican we met, our hosts were very affectionate to our baby boy. Her family was maong the educated interesting people we met in that city, and we're so glad we picked them as our bnb!
Our two night stay at Leonora's was a real treat! We arrived at the crack of dawn to her place, and though the check-in wasn't till much later, she was up waiting to greet us and made us feel right at home. She allowed us to settle into our upgraded comfortable, and cozy room, while she prepared us a nice breakfast. Her house was very clean and at walking distance to one of the most popular neighborhoods in Mexico City. What we enjoyed most about staying there (besides the awesome breakfasts) was meeting Leonora. She has a genuine personality, a contagious sense of humor, and is a GREAT conversationalist! She has 2 very polite and welcoming daughters living with her and two adorable cats that will approach you, if they feel like it! Thanks Leonora for your generosity and warm hospitality, you truly raise the bar when it comes to hosting!!
Great place! We got in very late and Leonora sent someone to come get us. Breakfast was wonderful every morning, with delicious local foods we hadn't tried before. Leonara was a gracious host, she knows the area well and was able to help us navigate the city. She made out first few days in this very large city comfortable and enjoyable! Highly recommended!
My boyfriend and I only stayed here for two short nights so we could see more of the city, but we loved it! Our bed was very comfy and Leonora was thoughtful enough to put us up in a different room (Bougainvillea) in the garden annex to give us more privacy. Great location within walking distance of downtown Coyoacan, the Frida Kahlo museum, and a metro stop the other way. AMAZING breakfast in the morning with delicious breads, yogurt, granola, honey, cheese, fruit (including a different exotic one each morning!), and hot coffee. A great way to fill up, so that you can enjoy the late lunch that is customary here. Didn't get much time with her (we were always go, go, go! with such a short visit to such a big city) but she had lots of stories to tell, and was very helpful in providing maps and directions, etc. Overall: sweet house, friendly and welcoming host!

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!
