A Condesa gem! Beautifully decorated and well-maintained, across from supermarket. 24/7 security. Keypad access. Located in great part of Condesa, close to everything but peaceful. Amazing restaurants and cafes abound. 10 min walk to Chapultepec and the must-see Castle. 10 min walk to Parque España & Parque México. 2 subways (Juanacatlan/Chapultepec) are 8 min walk and Patriotismo 20 min. Unbeatable location, clean, spacious, equipped. La Condesa is the best and you’ll soon see why I live here!
I have gone to great lengths to make the apartment a sanctuary for my guests during their visit. This is not a basic Airbnb that feels empty and sterile. My place is beautifully decorated, warm, and cared for! There’s a great view from the 4th floor balconies (1 off living room and another off master bedroom), a large supermarket (Superama) directly across the street, beautiful modern decor including TONS of plants that make the place feel alive, a 65-inch mounted LG HDTV with HDMI hookup for laptops plus an AppleTV and antenna for local channels, an excellent LG sound bar for playing music, 30MB Wifi, extremely comfortable mattresses, a fully-equipped kitchen, drinking water included (with a dispenser for cold and boiling water), a quiet family-oriented professional building w/ 20 apartments (3 per floor, NO COMMON WALLS), 24-hour security ("portero"), common rooftop patio with incredible views, unbeatable location in the La Condesa neighborhood, close to bars and restaurants but far enough away to not be bothered.
I provide extra towels, extra pillows, quality linens, ground coffee, filtered water, and whatever advice you might want about the area or the city. There is an amazing coffeeshop next door called Bo, and there are so many great restaurants within just a few blocks that it is overwhelming at times to choose! One of the city’s hottest restaurants called Lardo, owned by the same chef as the acclaimed Rosetta in the adjacent Roma neighborhood, is a 5 minute walk and the pastries/bread sold from their adjacent window is the best you will find in Mexico.
I am happy to recommend excellent restaurants in the neighborhood and point you towards treasures like the Tuesday-only daytime “market on wheels” (called a “tianguis” in Spanish) right down the street on Pachuca, and if you are an adventurous foodie you can inquire with me about my side business “Tyler’s Taco Tours” that I often take visitors on!
Uber is best for longer adventures, neighborhood is supremely walkable, Chapultepec Forest is nearby along with Parque Mexico and Parque España. Subway is nearby as well, an 8-10 minute walk depending on the line. The two lines are Chapultepec and Juanacatlán--again, both within 10 minutes walking from the apartment. Nearly everywhere in Roma/Condesa area is within 20 min walking.
The entire apartment is yours, and if you'd like you may access the public rooftop terrace (with amazing views of the area and Chapultepec Castle) by asking for the key from the doorman on the ground floor.
Interaction with guests: I am available as needed but often do not even meet my guests if I’m busy or am not in town. If I happen to be home when you arrive, I often love to meet my guests and give them recommendations for the neighborhood and city if they are interested.
My cleaning lady Paty may be here when you arrive or may arrive as you depart, and she is very sweet!
Other things to note
Check-in: The listed time is 3pm but if you need to arrive earlier, you can leave your bags downstairs 24/7 securely with the doorman. Depending on when my previous guests depart, the place could be ready as early as 12 noon but please do not assume you can enter the apartment at this time. The cleaning lady takes about 3 hours and I am not willing to sacrifice on cleanliness. Please communicate with me about your arrival to make things as smooth as possible for everyone.
Check-out: You can leave bags with the doorman downstairs if your flight is later, as the checkout time is 11:00am. Please do not assume you can stay later, but if you have a special situation let me know and I will do my best to accommodate you depending on the arrival time of my next guests.
