“Stella” a wonderful B & B – La Condesa – Mexico City

Images from Stella Bed and Breakfast, Condesa, Mexico City, 2017.

Not to confuse, we are NOT in Mexico City at the moment. The posts to come are from the same trip we did in 2016/2017 to New York and Cuba. I have waited to post about this stay to make sure the City is good to visit again after the Earthquake.

We stayed in the area of La Condesa, an area badly hit by the earthquake. I have researched the area and the places we stayed they are intact and waiting for your visit.

Staying at the wonderful B & B Stella in La Condesa, Mexico City was more by accident than planning. We had booked an Airbnb in La Condesa – that will be a post to come – However we arrived into Mexico City with Anon suffering a very bad chest infection so the three day trip to Puebla was abandoned and new digs had to be found. I had read the reviews about Stella, luckily they had a suite with outdoor terrace free. Just the place for the ailing traveller.

The Staff here are amazing, without them I don’t think we could have found the english speaking doctor, the women in the kitchen spoilt the patient so I could go out and explore this very hip suburb. This is how Hip, one morning I went down to breakfast and found myself sitting next to Martyn Thompson the Photographer and Designer. He appeared to be mentoring a young photographer. Hows that for a recommendation.


Stella is a bed and breakfast located on Amsterdam Avenue in the Condesa neighborhood, Mexico City.

The house was designed and built in 1930 by Francisco Serrano, one of the great architects of his generation, who built the Edificio Basurto and Pasaje Polanco, among other Mexico City landmarks. The house was restored in 2010, respecting the original design and period finishes.

The décor at Stella mixes art deco and vintage furniture with a stunning collection of Mexican contemporary art. It is clear that each piece of furniture, lighting and artwork has been chosen carefully to complement its specific space.

Stella has seven rooms, four in the main house and three in a separate guest house. The hotel uses its own water treatment plant, a rain water retrieval system and solar panels as part of our commitment to the environment.

  1. This really was a wonderful place in itself. Comfortable, wonderful staff and ambience, stylish. But above all, Condesa and nearby areas say 2 km radius around is just packed with great architecture, gardens, restaurants, cafes and bars and seemingly 10,000 dogs !!!

    Plan and book early – Stella is in high demand – and often booked out. It is a little pricey, but in my view really worthwhile as a fantastic launching pointing Mexico City.
