About Petra Fischer
Petra, the German owner (she speaks German, English, Spanish and French) has lived and worked as a journalist in Mexico for nearly 30 years. When authorities began to spruce up the decaying Centro Histórico more than ten years years ago, she bought two apartments on the top floor of a stately building between the Zocalo and Bellas Artes. Before moving in, she totally remodeled, modernized and redecorated both properties – one to live in herself, the other to put up friends, relatives and paying guests when visiting Mexico.

Really beautiful property. We had 7 people there and there was more than enough room for all of us. Petra was fantastic. Gave us great local restaurant suggestions. Very close and walkable to so many museums, the city center, etc. Great to have housekeeping every day and breakfast there for the morning.
Thank you, Sara and your family, for staying with us. I am happy you enjoyed the apartment. We enjoyed you. You were great guests!
Petra is the host we all seek when traveling. Her apartment is the perfect location for exploring the major attractions; is comfortable, clean, and secure with incredible views of the city. If you are new to the city, we highly recommend her Centro Historic tour the morning after arriving to acquaint you with an insider's knowledge and experience. Her restaurant recommendations were superb and within walking distance.
Her tips on everything from Metro use to insider's sites to see
is invaluable. Thank you, Petra! We so appreciate you.
Perfect Penthouse Apt in Centro Historic
We were four women traveling to Mexico City for the first time. Looking at pictures on the Vrbo website, the apartment looked perfect for us -- and it absolutely was. To begin, Petra was very helpful throughout the entire process. She responded to emails within hour-- giving us information about the area and advice on restaurants and tours. She even booked our tickets to Casa Azul for us. Upon arrival, Ceci greeted us warmly (since Petra was out of town) and installed us in the apartment, explaining everything we needed to know. The apartment was as, if not more, beautiful than it looked in the pictures. It was also immaculate. The living room and dining room were spacious, bright, and beautifully furnished. The four of us were very comfortable drinking a glass of wine on the couches that faced each other, or around the dining room table. The kitchen was large and had every appliance we needed. The. breakfast that Ceci brought in every day was perfect for us -- an assortment of breads and sweet breads, yogurt, delicious fruit and eggs, along with coffee or tea. The four bedrooms and bathrooms were in different parts of the apartment, giving all of us the privacy we wanted. The bathrooms were modern and the beds had comfortable mattresses. And, we could not have chosen a more perfect location. There is so much to do in the Centro Historico and we were a able to walk to so many museums and sights. We were also able to walk to several very excellent restaurants and markets. When we ventured into other neighborhoods, we used Uber, which worked out very well. All in all, the four of us had an incredible time staying at Bolivar 8 in Mexico City. Our only regret is that we were only there for five days -- definitely not enough time. I'm planning to return to Mexico City with my husband in the near future and I hope the Petra's apartment is available when I do.
What a wonderful and detailed review! Thank you so very much, dear Robin. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay (I certainly enjoyed the time I could spend with you) and I also hope that the apartment will be available when you decide to visit Mexico City again. Saludos to you and your fun traveling companions!
The location is perfect. You can walk to all the main attractions. For anything else further afield the Uber is very cheap. Petra and her team are very efficient and nothing is too much trouble. The apartment has everything in it that you could possible need.
Would definitely stay here again.
Incredible location and host!
You cannot ask for a better location from which to discover the historic Mexico City centro on foot! The apartment is incredibly spacious, well stocked and super clean. Petra is so helpful as well, offering to arrange airport transfers for day trips if desired. Over all this choice in lodging made our Mexico City experience exceptional!
Thank you for such a lovely review. Makes me happy to hear that you had an exceptional stay --- but then you were exceptional guests!
This was a wonderful, clean , safe and well appointed apartment in the best location. Petra is a delightful owner who provides a wealth of information. Could not be better!
