El Patio 77's owners, the friendly Diego Le Provost and Alan Favero, bill El Patio 77 as Mexico City's first eco-friendly bed and breakfast, and in addition to being an excellent choice for the conscientious traveler who cares about the environment (not an unimportant consideration in water-deprived Mexico City), this small spot is a major bargain. Each of the eight rooms is named for one of Mexico's states and its decor reflects either the artistic traditions of its namesake (black, glazed pottery in the Oaxaca suite, for instance) or something unique about that state (the butterfly light fixtures in the Michoacán suite are a reference to the fact that the state is where monarch butterflies migrate each winter). In addition to "Save water" and "Reuse your towel" requests that seem to be ubiquitous in modern hotels, El Patio 77 has a rainwater catchment and gray water recycling program, and much of the hotel's furniture and accessories are made from salvaged goods. Don't assume that means rough around the edges, though; the atmosphere is chic and comfortable. Breakfast is always a treat, with the housekeeper making Mexican favorites like molletes (toast topped with black beans) and fresh juice, as well as coffee grown in Mexico. El Patio 77 is also an art gallery, so you'll see plenty of locally made work and, likely, artists hanging out in the common area.
