The location is in Zone 6 which is far from the city center and airport. Never accept a taxi driver that's using a meter if you're a tourist because it turned out almost double the price of what we paid a taxi driver who agreed to a fixed amount because traffic in Mexico City can be horrendous. It's not centrally located for general sightseeing but if you're set on visiting the Frida Kahlo museum, it's not very far. The neighborhood has charming streets to walk along, although the pavements were dilapidated... but there was a nice collection of houses/mansions around. It appears to be an upper end Mexican neighborhood.
We stayed in a nicely decorated room inside the main part of the house. The only downside was that you could hear everything in the house - conversations, noise, etc. even from the room adjacent and from the innkeeper walking above. It's a cute, sweet house with a nice breakfast nook and garden. The bathroom could do with an update - especially the shower - in terms of water temperature and pressure. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was filling. In hindsight, though, it would have been better to have the private bedroom that's detached from the main house for more privacy but that comes at a higher price. It's probably best you just make a day trip into this neighborhood and return back to central Mexico city.
Also, the innkeeper is very accommodating but you'll need to be able to speak Spanish as she didn't speak any English.
