  • My Favorite Place to Stay in all of Mexico City!!!

    "This is my third long and lovely stay at La Gardenia. It is so full of old world charm, family heirlooms and intelligent art that I feel privileged to be invited as a guest by a significant family into a real home and not a staged rental. La Gardenia is a carefully preserved treasure from its pull chain toilet to its beautifully tiled floors and painted, enormously high ceilings. Just breathing in the atmosphere, gives me pleasure, a pleasure that cannot be replicated. It is a living history, which any renovation would scrub away. There are usually three of us here when I come and we all love to cook. The kitchen is a jewel and there is nothing better than sitting down afterwards at the huge table in the formal dining room with a crowd of friends to eat and enjoy. The interior patio garden is another favorite gathering place, which adds so much ambiance to this already unique apartment. We entertain a lot, and every one who walks in the door falls in love with La Gardenia. Many have since rented from Juan and one bought the next apartment to come on the market. None of us can fathom what the last reviewer was even talking about. None of the things he says about the apartment are true. Nothing. The review was vicious and perverse. Some of the things he says are true about Mexico City - the bustle, the noise, the pollution, but he infers that all of this is born and then emanating out from La Gardenia. He should have travelled to Switzerland and left Mexico City for those who love and understand its crazy vivacious nature! Juan and his staff are instantly responsive. If the toilet clogs or I need help calling a secure cab, they are right there for me. If I don't feel like doing the dishes after a party, I call for extra cleaning support. The lack of communication and transparency of the last reviewer just does not make any sense. To stay somewhere for that long and to be so miserable without asking for help or a refund, which Juan would have offered in a heartbeat, does not ring true or add up. Something else is going on here. When his head clears, I hope that he will have the decency to retract it and have it permanently removed from the VRBO site. One last thing I want to underline is that the apartment is very safe. I have been here alone for weeks at a time in between children visits and NEVER had a worry. My husband, who is not a traveler, would never let me stay here, if either of us had any concern."

  • The Best

    "Each room is equipped with a two burner mini stove top, a television with all the cable channels, wifi a bathroom, kitchen sink, utensils, and is furnished. One room can host a couple. This was the first place I have ever had access to the NFL network, so that was a refreshing tonic to alleviate any homesickness on weekends in the fall. Commentary in Spanish, (buen Tackleado!). My fiancee (then girlfriend) and I stayed at Casa Tarami for near on 4 months, and enjoyed pretty much every second of it. The location is fantastic, near the financial and in the embassy district, it seemed that the residents of the area was a lot of young white collar families. There are historic sights and monuments within walking distance. Bosque de Chapultepec, Museo de Antropologia, la Diana... more if you get on the transit. Casa Tarami is a 9-15 minute walk to two different metro stops on the pink line, Insurgentes and Sevilla. Insurgentes also has a metro bus station, so the location makes it incredibly easy to explore all the colonias of Mexico City. Enough small talk, the location, facilities and amenities are all fantastic, however, the people set this apart from any other renting experience. Katy and Gabriel are so sweet, kind and generous, and will practice Spanish with you no matter how bad you are, ask you if there is anything they can help with, and kindly call taxis any time you need one. They made us feel so very welcome, and it feels like staying with your cool aunt and uncle rather than renting. Any questions, any issues, any concerns were rapidly cleared up. Katy even took us on a quick walking tour of the neighborhood, showing us the grocery and lavanderia for washing clothes. In all honesty, I can not say enough positive things. I would recommend this to anyone looking for accomodations in DF, and more so if you are staying for an extended time. Country notes: -The whole economy is cash based, so expect to pay rent in cash (along with every other transaction in daily life). -The metro is safe, but there are pick pockets so stay vigilant. Rush hour gets packed, expect to be pushed into a car. -There are areas of the city that get grittier at night, this area is not one of them. Lots of finer dining oriented to satisfy businesspeople getting off work. Late night taco stands and Empanada spots (COMIChurro! is a favorite). The only unresolved issue is, when can I go back? -Pete"

  • Authentic Mexican Apartment

    "This is a great apartment for a Mexico City vacation. My family enjoyed waking up to church bells every morning and the view is truly amazing. From the moment you arrive at the airport the owner's personal driver takes you to the apartment. My family of 8 enjoyed this location and strongly recommend this apartment to families that wish to experience the city. Very close to the Zocalo and easy access to the Metro."
