In the neighborhood of luxury hotels and the US, British and Japan Embassies. Not far from historic center of Mexico.

Self catering and self check-in,24-hour convenience store, cafe and beauty salon in the building. Banks and many other services walking distance. Transportation by bus, metro and taxi walking distance.

The concept of MEXICOAPARTMENTS derives its aesthetic narrative and illustration from the lives and creative work of a few selected Mexican artists, who lived around the years of the construction of the building (40s). They were also related to the Colonia Cuauhtémoc, where the building is located, and are an important part of Mexico´s history.

Ideal for business travelers, short-term vacationers, and all people interested in a different experience in Mexico.

Exploring Mexico City with a toddler

  • 4 of 5

We just spent 7 days between the Lupe and Frida apartments.

Location-wise: Excellent! We were within easy walking distance to many of the most popular tourist sites. For example, it was about a 15-20 stroller ride to Chapultepec Park. (If you aren't walking with a child, you could certainly go faster). Advice to future travellers: Paseo de la Reforma cuts the park in two. You must walk on the central portion of Reforma (or the left-most side) in order to get to the Castillo de Chapultepec, for example.

Location-wise, food: Really quite good! Rio Lerma has many, many cafes within 5-6 blocks of the apartment (walking away from Chapultepec Park). We were delighted to happen upon a Japanese bakery, two salad-specialty cafes, Italian cafes, and two highly-rated taco shops as well as many other options. The Oxxo (think 7-11) directly below the apartments makes it easy to buy water and snacks at any hour.

Lupe Apartment: We originally selected the Lupe so that we could put our toddler to sleep at one end of the apt and us at the other. However, when we arrived we found out that the Lupe apartment does not have doors between the rooms. (There is a door that separates the bathroom from the bedroom, as well as a door to the standing-room-only kitchen - but there are no other doors that separate the other rooms.) Note that the Lupe apt does have a larger bathroom and is one floor higher (so a little less street noise).

Ana suggested we switch to the Frida (which we did as soon as we were able figure out the finicky door lock ---if you stay in the Frida know that its doorknob must turnthe OPPOSITE direction from the other doorknobs). *Note to MexicoApts: it would be really helpful if there was a way to contact someone on the weekends. We had to stay in the Lupe two more nights because we had no one to help clarify for us why we couldn't get into the Frida with the instructions we were given.*

Frida Apartment: This ended up being a better fit for two parents and a toddler as the Frida does have a door that separates the living room from the bedroom. The Frida kitchen is also larger than the Lupe kitchen.

If you don't have the right kind of kitchen implement in your kitchen, just ask Ana or her colleagues as each apartment seems to have its own strengths. The Frida did seem to have more variety of kitchen implements (perhaps due to its larger kitchen size?).

Check in and check out were very easy. We got our security deposit about a week after we returned home

A Home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

I just spent two weeks in apartment Frida and loved it.

The apartments are large enough to allow different rooms for different uses. They are clean, equipped with the basics for kitchen cooking, a comfortable bed, TV, WiFi, and even a small space heater to take the edge off those chilly days.

Located in a very safe part of Mexico FD, with a subway that you can get to within a few minutes walk. Mexico has a great Subway system that will take you to almost any part of the city you want to get to, for very little money.

The food shopping can be a challenge, but supermarkets and a Mercado are identified by the owners for your convenience. Lots of restaurants are within a few steps of the building, and more within a few blocks, so the selection of eating options is everything from the street Taco Stands, to some local very affordable restaurants, to the more elaborate options. You will not lack for options.

I would not hesitate to recommend this company and it's facilities to anyone who likes to have their own apartment for when they are traveling. Friendly and helpful staff are only an email or phone call away.

Happy travels everyone.

Great central location in safe neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed 6 nights in the Frida apt. and loved the location which was safe and wonderfully convenient. We walked in the neighborhood a lot--day and night--and always felt safe; there's a great variety of good places to eat nearby. The apt. is just 2 or 3 blocks north of the Reforma and once we moved our suitcases in, we usually took the metro or bus around. When we did take a cab, we asked the driver to let us off on the Reforma by the fountain of Diana Cazadora (the Greek goddess Diana the huntress, with her bow and arrow) because everyone knows where that is and with a lot of one way streets in the neighborhood, drivers seemed to have difficulty navigating to our corner. It was a short and pleasant walk; I just mention that as a tip to others. The apt. was clean and had everything we needed. I could see from the pictures that it was "color-deprived" (OK, Zen, minimalist) and in a country so full of color, that bugged me so I bought some paper flowers and a few other things to liven it up--things we're enjoying at home now! We arrived in Mex. City on a Friday evening and found the internet service in the apt. was down and we didn't know how to use all the locks on the apt. door. We called for assistance and had to leave a voice message. On Monday, helpful staff called back and all was promptly fixed. Having someone reachable over the weekend would be really nice, esp. for folks arriving then. The bed is huge and comfy; it takes up almost the entire bedroom! I'd personally prefer a queen size bed with a dresser, desk or at least room for a luggage rack. (We put our suitcases on the floor in the dining room because we weren't staying long enough to unpack them.) We had a friend stay with us one night and the management fixed the sofa up as a bed for her. (The bathroom is off the bedroom so it's best for a couple.) Bedroom is interior and we were never bothered by street noise. The laundry downstairs is very reasonable and they did a good job. The bldg. is OK for 55+ if steps are not a problem; there's no elevator. I'd stay there again and would recommend it to friends for sure!

Perfect location, Beautiful apartment, Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect location, close to everything we wanted to see, and it was clean and light and very comfortable. This city charmed me and I really enjoyed my whole trip, which was in large part due to the wonderful apartment. The purveyors were helpful and the whole process ran smoothly from start to finish. I even recommended Mexico Apartments to a friend who recently moved to Mexico City so she could give the information to visiting family members. Seriously. This place is great.

Comfort, covenience and culture

  • 4 of 5

Mexico apartments provides refuge and escape from the hustle of a big city in a safe and beautiful environment. The apartment building is located in a very safe area that is centrally located. A short walk to Chapultepec Park, great variety of restaurants and world class hotels. Site taxis one block away outside of Torre Major. Metro station 1 block away. Pharmacy one block away. The building itself has a great laundry service on the main floor, beauty salon and a 24hour OXXO convenience store.

We stayed in the Pita apartment and found the decor very zen and minimalist. Tastefully decorated. While the traffic activity in that area begins at 6:30am, it ends at 8pm. The building is very secure and quiet. If you want to experience life in Mexico city, I would recommend Mexico Apartments. It truly is a home away from home. Any questions or problems were quickly attended to by Ana. We truly enjoyed our stay of 2weeks.
