You’ll Love Your Stay at Casa Emilia Mexico City

As I frequently mention, I love Bed and Breakfasts. Why? Because they are the perfect union of a hotel experience and the feel of a cozy overnight at your friend’s rich aunt’s manor. You will love your stay at Casa Emilia Mexico City. It has the warmth of staying at someone’s residence, along with a delicious home cooked breakfast, but the comforts of a luxury hotel.

Lodging Type: Bed and Breakfast, ★★★★ Luxury Boutique Hotel

Where is the Hotel Located?

Casa Emilia is located in the Cuauhtémoc neighborhood. Cuauhtémoc is considered by many to be the cultural hub of Mexico City. This boutique hotel is located just shy of 1,700 feet away from the landmark, the Angel of Independence. It’s also centrally located to many other points of interest, attractions, restaurants and public transit. Therefore, if you’re looking to site see on foot, Casa Emilia is a good choice for centrality.

So many little details make Casa Emilia feel homey, yet luxurious


Bravo, as this hotel has a warm, kind, and caring staff. From the moment you arrive, to when you depart, you will feel well taken care of. This is a small hotel, so it will have an intimate feel and the service is high touch.

The area and the hotel felt extremely safe. We arrived in the evening and there were countless locals walking their dogs or out for an evening stroll. Additionally, there is a on site security guard and attendant that is present all night long and the main doors to the hotel are locked at all times. If you arrive in the evening for check in, you’ll have to be buzzed in.

The Room

After weeks of deliberating where to stay in Mexico City, I finally decided (and felt intuitively) that Casa Emilia was the way to go. By this time, there were only a couple rooms left. I decided on room #2.

Best decision ever.

Chic hotel room bed, with a tray on top of it containing an ice bucket with champagne in it and two crystal, textured champagne glasses
Entered room #2 and was so surprised to see this bottle of champagne in this darling room!

While the room is nowhere near the largest that the hotel offers, it really is the perfect size for two people, especially for a short stay. Room #2 is nearest to the dining area and has it’s own private stairwell (hello, quiet, peace, solitude!) with a view of the greenery that surrounds the main courtyard.

Beautiful hanging lights, earthy hanging mirror and countertop in bathroom
Room #2 has a sizable, well appointed bathroom with a huge walk in shower

Cute sitting area that overlooks the courtyard, great to enjoy room service or even get some work done

It’s thoughtfully decorated. The room’s decor is comfy and homey while intersecting with modern and edgy. Also, perhaps, one of the most important aspects… the bed is super comfy and I slept so soundly, I forgot where I was in the morning!

What’s to eat?

Great news! Breakfast is included in your stay at no extra charge. Your meal is served to you via table service and consists of juice and or coffee, fresh fruit and granola and a hot breakfast plate. Additionally, the menu varies. During our stay we were served Chilaquiles, which was exciting, because let’s face it, this dish is delicious.

Know Before You Go

Casa Emilia is an adults only hotel, so it’s ideal for couples or solo travelers.

The staff speaks mostly Spanish, so understanding at least transactional Spanish will help. However, if you don’t speak or understand Spanish, don’t worry! This will not in any way pose a barrier to your stay. The staff speaks some English and will happily utilize a translation app to accommodate you.
