Recent Mexico City reviews

  • Won the lottery when another family decided not to stay!

    "I snagged this apartment after an abrupt cancellation by a family from the United States visiting their relatives in Mexico. They inexplicably deemed the location to be undesirable and left, leaving the owners in a lurch during holidays. As a Mexican living in the United States, I feel compelled to address this issue in my review of this apartment, its amenities and owners. Centro Historico in Mexico City is much like the Sultanahmet in Istanbul or Trastevere in Rome. There are fantastic streets, there are great streets and then there are the not so great streets. Do I walk around texting on my iPhone with pesos hanging out of my pocket at night? No. I don't do that here in San Antonio, Texas, where I reside. Yes, thirty years ago, this was once a rough, working class neighborhood but then so was Soho in New York City. Today the neighborhood is in rapid transition, historic apartments and buildings are being snapped up by Europeans and Americans in the know. Investor Carlos Slim, the "richest man in the world", purchased the colonial building on the corner. The location is ideal, it is ground zero for Mexican culture and history from the sacred stones of Tenochtitlan and the plazas of Spanish Inquisition to world class museums and a main plaza filled with demonstrators, indigenous healers and Catholic pilgrims. It is alive with the chaotic commerce of the Capitol of Latin America against a backdrop of subtle decay and restored beauty. With that being said, I must go on to say that the apartment is wonderful and has all of those things you just do not find in most vacation rentals. Wine bottle openers, travel guides, spices, pasta strainers, French press coffee makers, flower vases, gallons of bottled water, a clothes line - the things you take for granted at home but somehow are absent in most vacation rentals. Your Mexican neighbors are mothers raising their children, professors and politicians who always have time to say "buenos dias" or "buenas noches" in the stairwell. The characters directly out front, have even stopped me to tell me that my keys fell out of my pocket or gave me tips on the tricky front door lock. It is a friendly environment. The owners are gracious, sophisticated, worldly and kind. Arturo, a Mexican artist-mathematician-historian-linguist-marathon runner and his partner, Sarah, an English painter-artist-chef-avid mystery reader can answer any question you may have regarding the city. Come, stay, don't cancel."

  • Wonderful Mexico City Trip

    "We stayed at Bruce's place for 7 nights. This place is clean, comfortable, safe and very convenient to everything. This is so much better and cheaper than staying in a hotel.The building's amenities were very good but we didn't get a chance to use them. There are just too many things to do in MC. We would love to come back and I would recommend Bruce's properties to my friends. His customer service is excellent. I brought 2 19 yr. olds and a 21 yr. old college girls.I never felt uncomfortable walking with them everywhere. There are 2 metro stations close by, riding the metro is easy and cheap. Just try to avoid them on rush hour or have a game plan in case you get separated. We bought food from Gloria, Ricon and the bakeries across the street (Independencia Blvd). We find that the cheapest water is from the Bodega on Juarez. Skip the small bottled water, you save so much buying the 10L ones. We cautiously tried as much of the food like Al pastor,suadero,pozzole, the churros and hot chocolate at El Morro. We miss them! Bruce recommended Ricardo for day trips. He's very good and he speaks English. I would also recommend him. He is full of information. If there are 4 of you, let Ricardo drive you rather than use Turibus. There are so many museums to visit and we only had a chance to see 3. The one for popular arts is just a building away. We enjoyed that. Watch the Ballet Folklorico, pay for the cheapest -300 pesos. Right before curtain time, if its not sold out you could be asked to move closer for just a few more pesos. Museums are free on Sundays (wish we have that in Houston) and you might be discouraged from going because it will be crowded. However, we didn't mind the crowd. It was a fun time to people watch, lots of vendors, lots of yummy food to smell and maybe try. We found the people to be very friendly, warm and patient. Trying to speak a few words of Spanish makes a big difference. We know that this is a place we would visit again!"

  • 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."

  • You should stay here.

    "This apartment was perfect for our trip. Our group included 7, which the apartment more than adequately accommodated. It was spacious, well-kept, clutter-free, and comfortable. Working with each of the apartment representatives was great - they were kind and hospitable, making sure we knew everything we needed to know for our stay. I also felt like our group could have consulted them with questions about the city and they would have been happy to answer. For visitors the location is perfect. The apartment is very close to subway lines, within walking distances of museums and shopping, and centrally located in the city. Overall, our visit to Mexico City was greatly improved by staying here."
