Keeping the nostalgia that comes with a house like this one, the Mexican firm Germán Velasco Arquitectos worked on the interior design of the building to give this boutique hotel a style that makes the guests experience a series of feelings, such as love, sensitivity, serenity, relaxation, joy, admiration, courage, hope, fortune, enjoyment and ecstasy, which later became the name of the rooms.

"Every space and every detail in fhe Pug Seal brings up a memory and a feeling. You have to go through it and live it all to love it and write your story in the book."
