I stayed in La Reja for over a month while in a business trip. At the end of my stay, I found myself not only moving around the kitchen as if in my house, buying tamales from the woman who sits outside the door every night (a well known Ms. Carmen) and almost crying when it came to say good bye to all of the Reja team. I do not think I could have found a place to stay that evokes so much history in its walls and so near to every place downtown. Around the corner is the famous Sto. Domingo church, one of the best international restaurants in town, outside its doors a famous market and just three blocks south the main plaza or Zócalo. This place is clean and provides a healthy breakfast you can enjoy under a bugambilia tree in the central garden. Price is excellent, place is very clean and central. This place makes me feel I want to go back, but next time it will be on a vacation. Also: BEST INTERNET CONNECTION!! This was a very important need for my trip and I had to move hotels after a month (once my collegues arrived). I missed the high speed connectivity from La Reja.
