Recent Mexico City reviews

  • It doesn't get any better.

    "We just returned from an 8 day stay at this penthouse. Everything was perfect. The apartment is beautiful and the views are stunning. Since the apartment is in the revived Centro Historico you are immersed in the history of this incredible city but at the same time have totally modern conveniences and great restaurants nearby. Petra is the perfect host, she is nearby when you need her with in-depth knowledge of what to do, where to eat, etc. but she is never intrusive. I assumed that the photos made the apartment look better than it would in person but I was wrong. If anything the photos don't do the space justice. The flexibility of the accommodations are a big plus. My wife and I stayed in the apartment alone for the first 4 nights and then friends joined is for the last 4. Petra only charged us for the space we used yet we had use of the entire living areas the whole time we were there. My wife and I have made numerous trips to Mexico City and always stayed in hotels but no more. We will stay here from now on."

  • 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."

  • Excellent choice.

    "I stayed at Casa Tarami for three months while I was working in Mexico City as a journalist. The location and amenities are excellent. Colonia Cuauhtemoc is a relaxed, elegant neighborhood with a variety of restaurants, plazas and bars. The studios are very quiet and come with everything you need minus a washing machine - there are 2 lavanderias within a short walking distance. Overall the studio was well worth the money and I really enjoyed my stay."

  • Perfect location, excellent service

    "The room is clean, well appointed and very comfortable. Not only did it include fast wifi and TV with numerous English and Spanish channels, Bruce also provided a cell phone for our stay! The condo building has a nice gym and a lap pool and is located in the downtown area near several restaurants. It is also within walking distance of a good shopping district. We did find the master bed very firm but I'm sure this may be a positive for several travelers. The second bed is less firm for those who appreciate a softer sleep. Overall we give this condo a strong review and recommendation!"
