This traditional-meets-contemporary bed and breakfast is housed in a historic Colonia Roma mansion built in 1913, and is named after the housekeeper who lived here for more than 70 years. The five-guestroom structure was restored and redesigned by architect Fermin Espinosa and interior designer Andrés Gutiérrez, who preserved the original layout (all the way down to the center courtyard, complete with Ignacia’s own orange trees) while adding luxurious finishes like marble in the bathrooms. Each room has a distinct color scheme as well as modern furniture by Eileen Gray, Eero Saarinen, and Sean Dix, among others. Book months in advance to guarantee a night in this city oasis, which was recently awarded for its restoration work.
