Stay in a classic historic building with contemporary comfort. In the heart of Mexico City where the modern coexists with the historic and everyday life offers an incomparable array of possibilities. Only 2 blocks from el Zócalo or Main Plaza and one block from the Supreme Court, the building is located amidst Museums, Galleries, Restaurants and shopping alleys and is only blocks away from the most vibrant and diverse nightlife in Mexico City. Unlike other trendy neighborhoods, it is statistically the safest spot in town.
The room is a very spacious, well lit and comfy space that surrounds an indoor courtyard transformed into a common area (dinning room). There is an extra room with a king size loft bed with a view to an inner "patio". The eclectic architecture unites functionalist with deco style elements and the neighbors provide a feeling of real Mexico, where artists, bureaucrats, middle class and low income families peacefully cohabit. The entire downtown area is a bike friendly neighborhood connected through bike lanes with other trendy neighborhoods such as the Condesa, Roma, Juárez and Polanco.
There is a flat TV screen (only local TV) that can be placed in your room, the space is also equipped with a projector for film screenings and good audio. Fast wifi, (website hidden) is welcomed, we have a vintage kitchen with tons of cooking utensils. On top of it we are located between the two most important markets that supply first rate restaurants across the city: the historic Merced market and the gourmet market of San Juan.
Accessibility: 2 blocks from metro stop Zocalo, 4 from Pino Suárez, 1 block from metrobus stop (line 4 that takes you in 30 min to the airport), here you can also get green cabs and of course we are surrounded by bicycle stations.
This is a wonderful place in a magical neighborhood.
I just love Centro, as there are so many centuries piled on top of one another, all in one place. And I've been to Mexico City 4 times now...and this has been my best stay.
Meanwhile, my stay with Yolanda and Janik (her son) was really enjoyable, and we all got along great.
I highly recommend this location, this apartment, and these fine folks to stay with when you come to Mexico City.
Pleasant experience. The host is very nice and provided us with all the information we need. Very good location, close to museo de nacional though it was a little bit hard to find for the first time.
We had a wonderful time at Yolanda's apartment! She was so welcoming and very knowledgeable about the history of Mexico City -- she spent time chatting with us and giving us suggestions about what to do. And it's really a beautiful apartment, artsy and full of light. The location is perfect for exploring the historic city center.
Thanks very much!
La habitación era amplia y cercana a los lugares que están ubicadas en el centro histórico. La habitación rentada no tiene privacidad ni seguridad ya que no se pude cerrar con llave y la puerta es corrediza. El departamento es muy ruidoso, sobre todo a la mañana, por el entorno en el edificio ya que no aisla de las viviendas vecinas del edificio. La habitación estaba con vellones del pelo del gato y tanto la cocina como el baño no estaban suficientemente aseadas. A pesar de la consulta específica de si el baño era privado y que su respuesta fue que dejaría el uso de uno de los baños para uso privativo nuestro, no cumplió con su palabra ya que fue compartido con otra persona (Bruno). Siempre estuvo dispuesta ante las consultas.

About the Host, Yolanda
Mexico is not a very safe country, once we establish communication via email I will let you know all about myself. So far, I am a curious person that believes in integrating life style, values and profession. That includes constantly generating new projects to expand my worldview.
