Hotel Description

Most foreign visitors to Mexico gravitate towards the multitude of coastal resort towns and the cosmopolitan mega-capital, Mexico City. Many would be surprised to discover, for example, that the inland city of Puebla, capital of the state of the same name, is Mexico’s fourth-largest city — less than a hundred miles from Mexico City, it’s an industrial center, and the birthplace of Poblana cuisine, one of a few popular sub-genres of Mexican cooking.

More important for our purposes is the fact that Puebla is home to an extraordinary small hotel. El Sueño is a family-owned and operated boutique hotel, converted from a pair of centuries-old Spanish Colonial townhouses, renovated in an austere and urbane style. Polished hardwood floors and white walls look familiar to anyone who’s opened a design magazine, but the décor and furnishings studiously avoid both the generic international style and the clutter of colonial kitsch — instead you’ll find wrought-iron antique beds alongside modern necessities like flat-panel televisions and wireless internet access.

With just eleven suites, El Sueño is small and intimate — service, though, is professional, and the services are bigger than you’d expect, including a swimming pool, jacuzzi and massage and beauty treatments. One restaurant is international in character, but the other is the must-visit, specializing in authentic Poblana fare, without which no visit to this city is complete.
