  • Leonoras house was beautiful. It was the perfect place for all of my friends attending my wedding. She provided a great breakfast for us in the morning and was very understanding and accommodating. I highly recommend her home.

    Response from Leonora:

    Thanks so much, Gerardo! It was a pleasure having you and your wife as guests. She's a lovely young woman. And contraulations! I certainly didn't hold you responsible for the noise issue. The only reason I even mentioned it was because, as part of the Airbnb community, I wanted to have it be avoided in the future.

  • The absolute best location!! Central to one of the most beautiful and quaint parts of Mexico City!

    Leonara is a fabulous hostess. She spared no expense on her really nice beds, bedding towels etc., hard to find such high quality in Mexico.

    Don't hesitate! You will be so glad you did. Her breakfast was picture perfect and yummy!

    If you get a chance to stay here I would highly recommend it.

    Xoxo

  • I had a very nice stay at Leonora´s house La Casa de Todos. The place is nice and clean, has a really good bed. The breakfast served was also plentiful and varied from one day to the other. Leonora is a good host and helped out with practical issues I had. Not knowing too much about Mexico City, I found it a good location, close to the nice historic centre of Coyoacan, and also close by San Angel.

    Coming to Mexico city again, I would be glad to stay here again.

  • We arrived late and tired and leonaras daughter kindly picked us up from the airport . We were greeted by the magical leonara and she made us some healing tea to help us sleep and left us to rest . The room was small but clean and lovely and the shower was great . It felt like staying with an old friend which was lovely . The area is nice and frieda kahlos house is divine . We did need to take taxis to get about and had a dodgy experience in getting totally ripped off in one and taken on a mad ride for half an hour when it was only near to our destination . We went to yoga one morning with leonora and that was totally divine I really recommend it - the teacher was truly the best I have ever been to and I felt great afterwards . We then went to the shrine of guadaloupe which was incredible and well worth a visit . All in all a totally kind and magical host and a safe snug place to land in and feel comfy and loved !!!!!

    You're a sweetheart! The lovely review is greatly appreciated! And your style is wonderful too.

  • La Casa de Todos was a great location for us to base our 4 night stay in Mexico City. Coyoacan has a small town atmosphere with its colonial buildings, quiet streets, and pretty parks and mercados bustling with activity. For me, Frida Kahlo’s Blue House was the highlight. For John, Diego Rivera’s Anahuecalli was. Leonora provided comfy lodgings, a delicious breakfast, and a wealth of information about where to go, what to see, and life in Coyoacan. It was a pleasure meeting her.

  • Our stay at Leonora's home was delightful. The clean, bright rooms look out onto a pretty garden and the generous breakfast in her dining room was wonderful. We also enjoyed talking about, and sharing, our mutual deep interest in yoga and language teaching.
    Leonora's home is situated in the amazing Coyoacan neighborhood - the whole place is filled with amazing homes and infused with history and artists. One of our favorite visits was to the Alfredo Guati Rojo National Watercolor Museum [ (website hidden) ]
    Leonora is as friendly, helpful and gracious as any host could be. You will not be disappointed when staying with her. She so kindly gave us a ride to the airport the morning we left and gave me some magazines in Spanish to read. Colin & Sarah Swales

    Thank you, Sarah and Colin! It was a pleasure meeting you and having you at La casa!

  • Leonora was very welcoming. The b&b was very cute and cosy. The rooms had acces to the garden. It was very sunny. The beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was very good. We really appreciate our stay at Leonora's house.

  • Leonora kindly picked us up at the bus station and took us back to La Casa de Todos. She is a warm and welcoming host. We sat and chatted over tea to relax. Leonora's place is new so she is gradually making it more and more comfortable. Already it is a great place to say. The beds are very comfortable, the garden is pleasant to relax in, and the rooms are very quiet. Leonora provides a varied breakfast and will accommodate any diet. The Casa is extremely well positioned for exploration of the fantastic area of Coyoacan. Coyoacan is peaceful, old and very beautiful. There are many galleries, museums and neighborhoods to explore. La Casa is five minutes away. Day trips into other parts of Mexico City are very easy as taxis are available but also the metro is five minutes away.
    Thank you Leonora for a wonderful few days with you.

About
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 (email hidden)ly 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!
